I have commented elsewhere multiple times on my personal position on all this, but you can probably guess where I am from either the above description of what just happened or my post from yesterday.
As I continue to absorb what seems an unending flow of comments, I am finding that I gloss over both the erudite analysis of constitutional law and theological discussions.
I tend to move quickly past contributions that display hatred for those who seem different to the writer or predict doom for our society, country, and world.
I have little time for those who only make fun, especially humor which garners laughter from one corner at the cost of those in another.
However, I do tend to linger on those observations which attempt to convey an individual’s reactions and perceptions from their distinct and human vantage point … after all, that is how we all have to address such issues.
I believe that this post from my friend, Paula, deserve a wider audience. It is deeply personal, compassionate, and underscores a truth about this discussion.

NOT ABOUT ME
A short read, but one which speaks to how each of us travels a unique journey to our understandings in life. Whether we support or decry movement toward legal and societal equality , it’s mostly not about us, even when we think it is or ought to be.
If you like her post, I recommend that you subscribe to Paula’s blog, so you can continue to enjoy thoughtful and well-stated observations about our human condition.
