HEAVENLY HOMOS---July 26,2015


   “Step right up. Who’s next?” 

   “My name is Solomon and I demand that you open this gate and let me in.”  

   “I don’t care what your name is, Jesus left me in charge and the only way you’re gonna get through this gate is if your name is in this book.” 

   “Okay, go ahead and check, see if my name is in there.” 

    “Stand over there a minute because I’ve got a lot of pages to thumb through. What’s your name again?” 


   “Yeah, I’ve heard of you. Now lets see, the S follows the T.  Okay, I guess your name will under the Ss?” 

   “No, because my name is King Solomon, look under the Ks.  Hurry up, ‘cause I need to know if my name is in that Book of Life.”   

  “Okay, just be patient; let me check. . . . . Yeah, Solomon, your name is in here.” 

  “I’m glad to know, for you see I had a couple of same-sex relations while I was back down there on earth, so I was just wondering.” 

  “Yeah, and come to think of it, I’ve heard about all those wild sex orgies you had, but don’t sweat the small stuff, buddy. I can remember all those lonely nights I had out there on the water with my fisherman buddies, and, and, well let me just say, we weren’t exactly angels back then either.” 

   “You’re not telling me that . . . .”  

   “Hey, hey, hold on a minute, now.  I’ve already talked to Jesus about this, and he has a special section reserved for you fellows.” 

   “What do you mean a special section?” 

    “It’s a special place where all the fellows like you will be able to sit.” 


  “Yeah, and it’s okay, Solomon, you can come on in. You won’t have to sit with all the other Christians. Jesus has a special section reserved for you. When you walk through the door to heaven it’s the section up on your left a little ways back. It’s not the best seat in the house, but it’s better than the alternative.” 

   “Well, thanks for that. I think I know about the alternative. Nevertheless, this is a surprise.” 

   “Yeah, there have been quite a few surprises here lately, particularly back down there on earth.  But it’s all okay up here. You’ll see Paul and John back there, and, believe it or not, Thomas is back there.” 

   “Not the Thomas that . . . .” 

   “Yeah, that’s him all right. I don’t understand it, but Jesus found out that he had a thing going on with one of the Roman soldiers, and that’s why he did what he did.” 

   “Now that’s hard to believe.” 

   “I know, but Jesus went ahead and forgave him, and told me to let him in.  So I’m just doing what the big man said. There’ll be some more faces back there you’ll recognize.”  

  “I must say, this is some setup you’ve got here.” 

  “There’s no doubt about it, this place is fit for a king.  Listen, save me a seat ‘cause, I’ll join you fellows when I finish up out here.” 


   “Listen up fellows. I think you know who I am.  I need to remind you that this is heaven and things are different up here. You can be glad for you have received the promise I made to you.  There is no need for me to be turning water into wine, and I won’t have to be pulling fish from thin air.  In about an hour I’ll be addressing the entire heavenly bodies so take your time and look around.  Just one short announcement—tomorrow night the Golden Voice Choir will be performing here in the Concert Hall. I understand there are now more than 10,000 voices in the choir and it will be directed by the Angel Gabriel. You are all invited to attend. Just remember when you return sit in this same section because it’s the place that I have reserved especially for you.  Are there any questions?”

   If the factual account of the Biblical creation of man is to be accepted as the truth, there should be no objection to the examination of those facts. God created a perfect man with the reoccurring need for food and water. Also, God’s perfect creation had a reoccurring need for sexual satisfaction. The Bible confirms that God looked upon his creation and said it was good.

   For hundreds of years man lived as God had intended. The primary objective of primitive man was to obtain food, water, and sexual satisfaction. Those same objectives were extended into other societies such as the Greeks, the Romans, and the Egyptians.

   It was an accepted fact that sexual satisfaction was necessary for God’s creation to be happy. Thus, society allowed multiple sexual relationships. Marriage was not so much an institution of love but an institution to extend the family lineage.  

   Then a young Scottish man by the name of James inherited the British throne. To atone for a troubled childhood and a mischievous adolescence, he set out to revise the prophetic teachings.  As a royal child he had been raised by male tutors, and, as a result, he felt he had missed the love of a family.  So his primary objective was to strengthen the institution of marriage with the hope of improving family ties. This was the beginning of a new sexual revolution.

   According to King James, a young couple would be expected to enter a lifetime commitment of marriage without any previous experiences. This commitment would be one man to one woman until death. There could be no premarital sexual relations, and certainly no practice sessions.

   Many wise men questioned this new document.  They argued that it was wrong to harness an individual with a lifetime of sadness based on one mistake, particularly if that mistake was as easy as the failure to distinguish between lust and love.  Nevertheless, the powers of the King were absolute, and in the end the King got what the King wanted.

  The King chose a panel of so-called Biblical scholars who would select, from a series of prophetic writings, those that would be included into a book that would later be called the King James Bible. (The writings that were omitted were combined into a book called the Apocrypha.) 

   God’s creation had been perfect, but with man’s intervention, perfection turned into imperfection.   Sexual satisfaction could not be obtained within the confines of marriage between one man and one woman, thus alternative measures had to be developed.  Sex had to be driven into a secret experience. Men would have to hide girlie magazines under the mattresses and tiptoe into the bathroom late at night with a sex magazine hidden securely in their pajamas.   Women would have to hide sexual toys deep in the kitchen cabinets or in places where only women would look.  Men and women would have to seek sexual satisfaction outside the marriage contract. According to the King, self-gratification would also be prohibited.  As a result, humans were left in a situation of sexual deprivation.

    The increased divorce rate proves that the marriage contract between one man and one woman for life is a mistake. Instead of accepting the fact and correcting it, man has attempted a cover-up which has driven sexual satisfaction into an underground experience. It is a sad commentary that contemporary man has allowed the interpretations of one man to create a nation of sexually destitute individuals. 

   The true fact is that the King James’ Version of the Bible was not dropped from heaven in a leather bound, red-letter edition as many church-goers still believe. As the human race has progressed, it has been proven that the book many call holy has turned out to be not so holy after all.

   No matter how many times people attempt to distort history, the fact remains that the Civil War was fought over the issue of slavery.  For America it meant the right side won. It is unfortunate that throughout history some individuals have been brainwashed to give their lives for unworthy causes.  Fighting to keep people enslaved was an unworthy cause.

    It takes a big man or woman to admit a mistake, but by doing so we become better humans. That is why I say that many Southerners need to ‘get over it.’ Slavery was wrong and America is a better place even if it took a war to right the wrong. If the Civil War had not been fought, slave uprisings would have continued and Southerners would have never been able to live in peace.  The Confederate flag was the symbol of the Civil War and the Civil War was fought to keep a race of people in involuntary servitude, thus the Confederate flag should not be displayed in front of government buildings.   

   The issue of ‘get over it’ also applies to the Supreme Court’s ruling on same-sex marriage. No matter what culture, what country, what race, or what national origin, in all societies some people of the same sex fall in love with each other.  Same-sex marriage has been legal in the United States for several weeks, and it has not hurt one single person.

   It is totally wrong for some political and religious leaders to continue to advocate social policies that divide the nation.  Anything that divides a society weakens a nation. The divine purpose of The United States of America is to show the world what a mixed society of free people can accomplish when they work together. Oppressed people all over the world need to know that there is one place where people can be free, therefore the light of freedom should never be dimmed in America.  That light now shines brighter because the Supreme Court ruled in favor of same-sex marriage.

   In Louisiana the first step in school integration was to integrate the faculty.  I was assigned to teach in an all black high school. The first lesson I learned was that black students could teach a white teacher more than a white teacher could teach black students. I was startled to learn that there is beauty in skin-color, and there is a depth of determination in the eyes that struggle. I was surprised to learn that black female students had the desire to continue school even with the responsibility of taking care of babies. I was shocked to learn that some male and female black students prostituted their bodies in order to earn enough money to buy clothes for school. I was amazed to learn that black students who lived in homeless shelters walked to school with the glowing desire to learn. I was stunned to learn that the only meal a day for some students was the meal at school.  I was educated to the fact that some students could learn more on an empty stomach than others could learn who had plenty.  I was astonished that many students would go home and wash their one piece of clothing so they could wear clean clothes to school the next day. I learned that the struggles I may have experienced were nothing compared to the struggles of black students who were trying to rise above the stigma of living in a ghetto.

   But the biggest shock of all was learning that American lawmakers voted to cut spending for programs that provided food for hungry American children.  I learned that the biggest disgrace that the people of any nation has to face is to have a government that gives away trillions of taxpayer’s dollars to other nations, and allows American citizens to suffer.

   The best cure for prejudice is to associate with a person of a different race or a person of a different sexual orientation. I can recall the situation in the South when the courts ruled that all public schools must be integrated.  A few white teachers resigned rather than teach black students, and a few wealthy white families established independent schools to prevent their children from attending school with blacks. Many predicted that it would be the end of public education. However, the world did not come to an end, and the public educational system did not crumble. Today, most children have adapted to an integrated society, and life goes on.

   Tomorrow the sun will rise in America, and the world will not come to an end because the Supreme Court ruled in favor of same-sex marriage. The doors of the churches will remain open, and Christians will continue to attend the church of their choice. A few will resign certain positions, and some businesses may close, but in general America will go about business as usual.

   The gay community expects heterosexual couples to continue getting married in the traditional way because marriage equality does not hurt any one.  New jobs will be created because same-sex wedding planners will have more business than they can accommodate.  Flower shops will specialize in selling flowers to same-sex couples, and bakeries will specialize in selling same-sex wedding cakes.  Mechanic shops will spring open that will specialize in mechanic work for same-sex couples, and pizza houses will specialize in selling same-sex pizzas.  A few will get up and move because they refuse to sit next to a same-sex couple in church, but in time it will all vanish as dust in the wind.  For you see, most people want to get on with the process of living.  The intelligent ones know that to get the most out of living we must live in peace and harmony and learn how to get along with others.

   It can all be summed up in the words that an elementary student said to her teacher, “Same-sex marriage is simple, if you don’t like it, don’t do it.”
