There goes Sunday school
July 1, 2018
This is a true but tragic depiction of how gay kids, even today, face bigotry and hatred, especially from the so-called ‘Christian’ community for being who they are and who they love, and how it affects their mental well-being. In the story, Mike sums up the Christian hypocrisy in his face off with his Christian school principal when he says, “I’m referring to the very same book that condemns homosexuality in the Bible. They go on to say a whole lot of things are ‘abominations’ including, eating shellfish, wearing jewelry, cutting your hair, getting a tattoo, and harvesting honey. Why is this one thing different?”
If anyone is interested in reading more ‘gay .vs religion’ stories, I highly recommend Mason Dodd’s two powerful interconnected books, “Aaron’s Story” and “Braden’s Story”. (Read them in this order. )
I’m always surprised when an author invests his time to write a quality piece of work and then doesn’t bother to give that work a final going over to make sure it’s as perfect as it can be. The author mentions “a final round of edits” in the Acknowledgment. He needs a new editor. There are literally dozens of instances of missing words, misspellings and scrambled word order. Call me a grammar Nazi if you want. It’s my pet peeve.
So, great story but one star off for poor editing.
