So the U.K. is beginning to process marriage reform. I am quietly pleased about this since I see no real reason it shouldn’t pass through our fairly moderate and generally secular political system. Thank God, really, this is not America.
The Coalition for Marriage – cunningly named – has launched a petition against the policy. It is apparently rallying the limping trail of old-school conservatives to its cause. Its website makes some bold but empty claims about marriage being under threat, which score high on controversy but low on factual backing. Like, “People’s careers could be harmed”.
When I first began to recognise the attraction I felt towards men as a real part of my life, I was sure I could do away with it. Many forces in my life, social and religious, had assured me that homosexuality was undesirable and evil and I was sure that God or society would provide me with a way out. I have tried reconstructing the journey that took me from where I was then to where I am now, and have found it hard to put the pieces all in place. I went through so many extreme emotions, so many confusing ideas, that to retrace it is impossible. But I have kept tabs on a few of the major landmarks I passed and here they are, along with a whole bunch of web resources that I found along the way.
Q 1) Why am I this way?
