McKrae Game
McKrae Game

Former Ministry Leader and speaker McKrae Game was fired by the board of the ministry he started to help Christians struggling with homosexuality when he could no longer keep to himself that he didn’t think God hated gay people.  Well that and his porn habit. After more than two years of processing that firing and coming to accept himself, he came out as a gay man in July 2019.

He asked for forgiveness from his former clients and began speaking out against Conversion Therapy. McKrae obviously missed having a mission in life and is turning to embrace being a front-line advocate for banning gay conversion therapy.

In this interview McKrae shares his view of life now that he’s out and coming to grips with what that means for himself and his family.

Episode 12 Divination What? with Lupa

Lupa is a professional artist and published author comfortably ensconced in the Pacific Northwest that I ran across on Facebook when for some reason the algorithm decided that I would be interested in a divination work shop. I wasn’t but I did issue a friendly challenge to her to try and convince me that I was wrong about divination.

A friendly conversation ensued and Lupa gave me some insight into what I was wrong about in regards to how she practiced divination.  She’s one of the most down to earth and practical pagans I’ve ever met she also makes some great artwork form dead things

you can see her website at TheGreenwolf.com and buy art at http://thegreenwolf.etsy.com

4 Am

Me; zzzzzzzzzz

My Brain: hey wake up!

Me: wha? Why? *checks time* Brain! Its 4am! Wtf? We have a busy day ahead. We need to sleep. We got to bed late and this is way too early to get up. Go back to sleep.

My Brain: valid points and well argued! Kudos! But we need to think about everything we are doing on Saturday plus like 90 other things! Plus remember that one time…

Me: Brain! Stop! No! Go back to sleep!

My Brain: but what about this? Or this? Or this!? Oh oh and Money! We need to think about money and well that there is always more month than paycheck so we need to think about that a lot. Also we miss Daisy. Oh and now we think about feeling guilty for not being able to afford better vet care. And…

Me: Brain!

My Brain: oh and we should also think about…

Me: Aaaargh! Thats it.

Body: oooft

Me: Cat! No you can’t lay on my face and damn it stop trying to get under the covers.

My Brain: ohhh how adorable and annoying.

Me: sigh okay. I’m getting up.

My Brain and Body: but its cold outside the covers. Lets just lay here!

My Brain: ooh look all this tossing and turning and wrestling with the cat has woken Wife, lets feel guilty about that too.

Wife: what time is it?

Me: Don’t ask!

I Didn’t have a name for it (Part 2)

I Blame the Internet.

My husband and I left Virginia Beach and all of the emotional chaos that had ensued from my attempt to change my sexuality via prayer and pseudo-psychology. We also purchased our first computer that could connect to the internet at the same time. This was the time of dial up and AOL’s ascendance. For a lot of people myself included AOL was our on ramp to the internet.

I was not then nor am I now a technophobe but I have a studied disinterest in the technomagery that is the underlying code of programing. I am not however afraid to do things with a computer system that evidently weren’t originally envisioned by the programmers which has led to hours of frustration on my part.

Once we had settled into our new home in Michigan I focused on my role as wife. I’m not saying things were immediately better. My husband and I spent a lot of time redefining ourselves and our relationship without the interference of the expectations of religion. I am a non traditional woman to say the least. I thought We didn’t want kids for one thing, which I was fine with. My husband respected it as my wish since my body would bear the brunt of such a decision. Our parents weren’t so sanguine about the lack of grandchildren and since they weren’t really privy to my struggle with my sexuality they had no basis for understanding our evolving relationship.

Without the cultural structure of religious norms that we had both grown up with we spent a lot of time trying to figure out what was a valid floor plan for our marriage. I know some Christians will point at that very struggle as a way of justifying their own worldview but for us the Christian Worldview was killing me and destroying any hope of happiness we had as a couple. It only made sense for us to search elsewhere.

The internet was the key to me finding other people like myself. Websites, forums, articles, Livejournal posts, IRC and chatrooms were all new access points to learn about and meet real people who didn’t live conventional life styles. I found a whole new vocabulary for the things I felt and wanted. I also found people just like me who were happy and confident in being gay. They weren’t evil. They didn’t run around molesting children. They had families of their own. They weren’t alcoholic. Some were monogamous some weren’t. Some were bisexual some were strictly gay. Some were in open marriages…

Wait a second….
