Boy Scouts Deal with "Gay" question...

 I read an article about the boyscouts dealing with the "Gay" question. Here is my problem with an article like the one posted below at the bottom of this post. Havings struggled with this myself when I was younger, there are two statements that operate under false assumptions in this article.
  1. LDS says that you "can be gay but can't act on those feeling"
  2. "And I want every boy, regardless of sexual orientation, to be able to participate in the scouting program."
These statements operate under the premise that you can be "Gay" just like you can be black or white, male or female, etc. Gay, contrary to popular cultural belief is NOT a state that one is, but a mindset one operates under.

Now, Christian's have been quick to call it a choice, which in essence it is, but it's a choice in the same way that alcoholism or addiction is a choice. It's a result of mindsets and decisions, but not a direct choice. Nobody says: "I think I'll choose to be an alcoholic" Likewise nobody(not most of them anyway) says: "I think I'll choose to be gay."

However, this is not to say that being alcoholic or gay is choiceless and automatic. Both are the result of conditioning and beliefs. Anyone who wants to be free of alcoholism can be, anyone who wants to be free of homosexuality can be. Not through pop culture programs either. AA isn't any more effective for Alcoholics than other so-called "Gay recovery programs" have been for Gays. Those fail because they attempt to use psychology and therapy to do something only Faith in the Word of God can do.

All mindsets are the result of the overflow of the heart. What have been put in the ears, in the eyes and spoken by the mouth becomes belief. We see this with anorexia all the time. You can tell the girl she is TOO skinny, and it's unhealthy, and she needs to eat, but in her mind she is fat and nothing YOU say can change that. To her, she is fat and she must stop eating. It's not truth, but to her it feels true. This is the case with "gay". You may feel gay, you may believe you are gay. There actually is no such thing. Gay is a state of mind. All twisted or incorrect states of mind can be changed by the renewing of your mind through the Word of God. You need to saturate yourself with who you are according to the One who created you, and not who the broken world says you are.

This is a VERY unpopular teaching and I don't expect it to become any more popular, but it's the truth. If you don't want to be "free" of being gay, don't be, that is your decision. If you want to be you can be. Here are three great resources for help:

emClient Desktop Email and Calendar Tool Review

Desktop Email and Calendar Tool Review. I don't want to spend a ton of time on this, but I think it's worth giving my hand to this OVER BLOGGED topic because MOST of the other blogs were helpful to a point, but they were the SAME blog post, almost verbatim, on different websites. Here is my journey. The other day I get fed up trying to boot Outlook and it took awhile to boot up, because my personal computer only has very little RAM and I haven't bothered installing more, and I'm just over it.

I also wanted an email/calendar app for the android phone, which I may have to write about too because I figured that out for now. In case you interested the short of that is that I am using the basic Gmail app for email and Outlook app for that email, and using aCalendar which actually just overlays on top of Google Calendar. So you are really using Google Calendar but aCalendar is a MUCH prettier interface! I was trying to use Outlook calendar but on the Android but they seem det…

The W Story Structure - 4 Sequence Story Structure

Out of everything I've ever read on story structure for fiction writing, the W-Story Structure makes the most sense to me. If you'd rather view these as Acts (3-Act or 4-Act) you can overlay that on this W and it still works.



Glen C. Strathy writes (in much more detail here) in his article, The W-Plot vs. The Dramatica Model of Story Structure. There are four sequences for most stories. Each of the four legs of the W is comprised of a sequence of events that lead the story along to it's natural conclusion.

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)Sequence 2: recovering from the problem (new ideas, positive momentum)Sequence 3: deepening of the problemSequence 4: the resolution of the problem (new light or understanding)

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)
The Inciting Event (the event that is at the heart of the reason this story happened) may have occurred before your story begins, and often does. In King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017), th…

Interview Skills- An Introduction

Interview Skills- An IntroductionInterviewing is one of the most important skills one can have in the workplace. You cannot move in or up without passing the interview. Yet as important as it is, few people ever take the time to study material on the skills needed to master that process. They go in to an interview, answer the questions as best as they can and hope for the best. However, there IS a process. There is a technique to interviewing. It’s just as important as your resume’, skills, experience, and accomplishments. A good point to make also is this: Even being your very best or THE very best doesn’t mean you will get the position though.  You may be the very best salesman in the company and that may come out swimmingly in the interview. But the fact is the person is not JUST looking for someone who is great at their job. They will also be looking for someone who will make a good “Fit” for that particular position. For Example, if the position is a supervisor working directly und…
