Several Things - December 1

Last year on World AIDS day I ended my entry by saying, "And I fervently hope that one of these days World AIDS Day will be the day in which victory over AIDS is celebrated. Toward that end, I will remind all of you, no matter your sexual orientation, to be safe." This World AIDS Day, I reiterate both the hope and the reminder.

A lot of the time I forget that there are people in Chapel Hill who do not share my liberal bent toward things. So I get shocked with things like a recent letter to the editor of the Daily Tar Heel from a research technician who said, "True Christianity never will accept homosexuality as an acceptable behavior, so deal with it." This was part of her response to a political cartoon she didn't like.

A reply to her letter today was more thoughtful than anything I could have written, in large part because its writer managed to reply without comment on her attitude, choosing instead to concentrate on the points she raised.

So I won't reply in that venue, but here I will say that I hope the technician will someday show me the letter appointing her the arbiter of all things True Christian.

Go see what Catherine did with the meme!

I'm enjoying reading these entries (including those linked yesterday). And I look forward to reading more of them, so if you've done one (or more) of these entries, please send me the link.
