Yesterday I wrote about my friend Todd, a married Christian man who struggles with homosexuality and a pornography addiction. I sort of expected to get a lot of comments on it, but the comments never came. I didn’t mean to scare anyone away with my warning statement at the end of the post (“Please note that any discussion about…homosexuality lies outside the scope of this blog…blah, blah, blah…”). I just didn’t want to get unhelpful comments like “Gay people suck and he doesn’t deserve to be married blah, blah, blah….”
The whole story has been weighing on my mind for a while, and I haven’t really shared it with people until yesterday. In fact, it is the first time this particular story has been told in public, albeit with a pseudonym for Todd. (The post had the explicit approval of both Todd and his wife, by the way.) We were both a little relieved to get it out in the open like that, and then we got no indication that anyone had read it.
Thus far in the life of this blog I have not begged for comments, and I promise never to do so ever again for at least another three months, but please leave your thoughts. (If you’ve never done that, you can leave a comment by clicking the Comments link below and typing a message into the text box in the window that appears.)
