I am an Atheist

Also this is 100 Day Project Day 9 I’ve avoiding writing about this particular topic for awhile. It’s actually easier for me to write about my journey through the ex-gay ministry and accepting my homosexuality than it is to talk about why I don’t believe in God anymore. A Lot of people will say that one has a lot to do with the other. I disagree. Yes I met some pretty shitty Christians in my journey out of homophobia but what’s important to remember is that I know a lot of fantastic ones too. For a long time I believed[…]

I Didn’t have a name for it (Part 4)

Read Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3 Let me backup a second… By the time the discussion of opening our marriage reached the point where both of us would be okay with it we had picked up and moved across country with enough money to get an apartment and sustain ourselves for a little bit while we both got jobs. Neither one of us are slouches in the getting jobs department so we were both gainfully employed within a month of moving. Oregon isn’t like the Midwest. Culturally Oregon is a lot more progressive, especially in Portland where we[…]

Everyone involved knew what was going on and agreed to the rules and activities. There were various levels of openness. Some couples just wanted to be able to casually date outside of the marriage. Some had regular lovers. In some marriages one spouse[…]

I Didn’t have a name for it (Part 1)

I didn’t have a name for it I didn’t grow up gay. Yes I know now that I was gay back then but I had repressed my feelings so much that I didn’t have a name for what I was. I Wasn’t like those others. I rejected the very idea that I could be gay. It’s not any one person’s fault. I was a product of my environment. I was a product of the cultural programming I experienced. I’ve had conversations with my family since coming out. They’ve expressed how hurt they were that I didn’t feel like I could[…]

The wrong side part 3

Read Part 1 Read Part 2 We didn’t return from the March conquering heroes. Mostly we slunk from the Metro station, each to our own transportation then off to eat dinner before gathering back at the church for a prayer meeting. This was the last time I visited this particular Ex-gay group (Transformation Ministries) though I did continue to affiliate with Sought Out in Virginia Beach for a while longer. Micah It was very dark out by the time the group gathered in the room to pray. About 15 people had attended the protest of the March. At least 7[…]
