Ten Things I wish the Church Knew About Homosexuality

1. If Jesus did not mention a subject, it cannot be essential to his teachings.
2. You are not being persecuted when prevented from persecuting others.
3. Truth isn’t like wine that gets better with age. It’s more like manna you must recognize wherever you are and whoever you are with.
4. You cannot call it “special rights” when someone asks for the same rights you have.
5. It is no longer your personal religious view if you’re bothering someone else.
6. Marriage is a civil ceremony, which means it’s a civil right.
7. If how someone stimulates the pubic nerve has become the needle to your moral compass, you are the one who is lost.
8. To condemn homosexuality, you must use parts of the Bible you don’t yourself obey. Anyone who obeyed every part of Leviticus would rightly be put in prison.
9. If we do not do the right thing in our day, our grandchildren will look at us with same embarrassment we look at racist grandparents.
10. When Jesus forbade judging, that included you.

I made my first juicer veggie drink but I cheated. I juiced a small apple, an inch or so of ginger, several stalks of celery, several leaves of collards and then I cut it with white grape juice. And I have to say, it's delicious, and very, very green.

Next time I'm going to cut it with tea, probably chamomile.

I'm not up to switching out juice for food but trying to cook around four people usually winds up with me budgeting money meals and I don't get as much veggies as I would like and definitely not as much as I need. I'm going to see if I can make some drinks that aren't green and get James and Jazz to try those. I'm also trying to bolster my vitamins, especially my iron, and the web says things like calcium are very high in collards (kale, cabbage).

It's a good thing I like collards because the only place I could find kale (the juicer sites love kale) was at Wal-mart and it was expensive, wilted and teeny.

Meanwhile, I apparently have more hair than I think I do. In a standard pony tail it cuts off just above my shoulder blades. In the shower when wet it goes well past my shoulder blades. Have some serious dry ends to cut off but usually my hair breaks off in my hands once it hits my shoulders. It's not doing that now which I guess I have to attribute to no longer shampooing my hair with regular shampoo. Using a mild baby shampoo once a week and the rest of the time I wash it with conditioner.

It is very green outside, I like the green.
