Song's Thought for the Day

Now, look here.

Men are human. Women are human. Heterosexuals, homosexuals, asexuals, bisexuals are human. Transgender people are human. Right-wing lunatics are human, left-wing paranoid conspiracy theorists are human.

Each and every human, no matter how difficult to deal with, no matter how much we are frightened of their power, is a child of God. And no matter what measures we put in place to try to tell ourselves that the other children of God don't matter, we are wrong, and God will have the final word.

So what are we to do? Deal with it. Get over ourselves a bit. Accept, understand, embrace our differences. And work to make God's will--that's love and salvation, folks--as evident on earth as it is in heaven.

I don't have all the answers on how to do that. Neither does anyone else. But we won't figure it out if we keep turning people away out of fear.
