You guys would be amazed at some of the e-mails I receive from readers or people like the woman I'm about to introduce you to who calls herself "God'z Girl". She stumbled upon a blog I wrote on anti-gay minister Bishop Liston Paige and decided to send me an e-mail to warn me about the error in my ways(You can change Darian! Just repent and give your life to the Lord!) and provide some tough Christian love. And of course her e-mail started out like this;"I'm not coming to you being hypocritical, judgmental, self-righteous, or religiously debating because I'm in now way any of those things". Yeah right.

In a fit of rage(not really, I'm just being dramatic) I trashed her first message but I managed to save the ones that followed. Here's how it all went down.

I'm gonna keep this short and sweet because I just don't have the energy today to participate in another religious debate. Maybe another day, but not today.

I was going to respectfully disagree with your argument because I've heard it before. But one line of your comment struck me:

"Our sexual preference is a CHOICE. And we have the choice to chose between right and wrong - no matter what the sin is"

If you really believe that a person's sexual orientation is a choice rather than being innate then I have to ask you 6 questions that will hopefully
make you re-visit your assertion on this topic.

1. When did you decide to become heterosexual?
2. Day?
3. Time?
4. What were you wearing?
5. Did you have an option between heterosexuality and homosexuality?
6. When you made the decision to be a heterosexual did you immediately run out and tell everyone that you'd decided this orientation over the other?

Sound crazy? Probably because you won't be able to answer these questions, because I can almost guarantee you never made a decision to be straight it was just apart of who you are.

I can't understand for the life of me why bible thumping, hypocritical, self-righteous, judgemental Christians can't understand that it works the same for gays and lesbians.

Thanks for reading my post.

God bless,
Darian

Darian,

I do believe that the very first thing I said in my comment was that I'm not coming to you being hypocritical, judgmental, self-righteous, or religiously debating because I'm in now way any of those things. I've been through too much in my 36 years of life. If anything, I have compassion for people not judgment.

I too am going to keep this short and sweet. I could answer every one of your questions with ease, but answering will continue on a journey you don't wish to take.

One name I will agree with however, is Bible-thumping. I know the Word of God and that's how I live my life - according to His Word. Do I make mistakes? Have I sinned? Of course I have. But the key is recognizing what I did, confess to God, repent, and keep right on moving toward my goal: to be more like Him.

I also included other sins because the Bible doesn't limit it to homosexuality or lesbianism. I said that to say this: if you are a Christian you simply can't continue to ignore what God says on that subject as well as others. It doesn't matter how long you had the desire for men, it was never God's intention. And the reason why you've heard it all before is because God is giving you the opportunity to repent and receive your deliverance in that area. You will never be able to say that God didn't present himself to you on numerous occasions.

I'm not going to view the youtube video because it won't change my mind on this subject.

I don't even know how I came across your page. I think I was searching for someone. But I do know that I didn't find it by chance. I pray that one day all will be well with you.

A big hug to you and take care!

From Darian

A big hug to you too because you really believe you came across my profile to "deliver a word" and turn me away from my "wickedness".

All is well with my soul and my relationship with the God I serve.

Be blessed as I am everyday that God breathes life into my body.

God's Black Gay Creation,

Darian

When are these people gonna learn that one Donnie McClurkin in this world is enough? I'm the real thing baby. LOL! Black and SGL with No Apologies.

I think these people actually did make the conscious decision to be straight, or at least ignore publically, their true sexual orientation. That's the only way their stance makes any sense. She is probably just another closet case, who has always struggled with her sexuality, and has decided that a life of misery is fine with her.

Me? I just hit DELETE or SPAM on people like that. Life's too short to take them seriously.

although blog bandwidth may not have allowed for all the e-mails passing between the two of you, it may be helpful to the readers had we seen her initial e-mail that prompted your march 29 response. the pieces you highlighted in your post opening didn't give the full scope of what she wrote..IMO

anyway, i'll let you handle the wrangling back and forth with blog viewers and their e-mails, but i do have a question for you. you have often spoken about your spirituality and your relationship with God. i assume that in that relationship you have referenced the bible on occasions as a source of encouragement, so on and so forth...so given your particular relationship with God, what is your exegesis of Lev. 18:22? i know this a widely used scripture concerning Christianity and the SGL community, but i am curious as to your interpretation.

except that you do have to take them seriousely, because you never know when they're going to "act out" and whose going to be around when they act out, you can imgaine being on a crowded Subway, an some old holiness women call's you out because of the way you're dressed or something like that...


and that train happenes to be full of social hero's, who intiate the physical manisfestation of her holiness's disgust, it has happened to me...

I didn't get beaten, but i was completely humiliated, and embarassed... (I was wearing a small cross earring in one ear )

people who never go to Church justify killing in God's name ( that would be half of the Anerican Military )

These folk in God's holy army are anything but harmless.

I just got into a confrontation with DL Foster ( I kid you not, DL is his real intials )

excuse my language here, but DL is one of those preachers, who used to be "gay" but god and pussy saved him from a life of enterntal damnation...

truth be told the dude was never good looking, and as he got older it got harder to pull trade, except for a women with 5 kid's desperate for a daddy for those kid's, but that's just my opinion, they might really be in love...

But DL had put my email address up along with my URL and accused me of lodging a death threat against him, well after a few well placed call's he backed down and removed it...

I did not threaten him, but DL is a wanna be " I'm Famous " but I don't sing...half ass jack leg preacher, but his ambition could get you killed.

but these people are anything but harmeless...
