Speaking on Saturday

I am speaking about LBGTIs and Paganism this Saturday at Come Together Kentucky, an annual LBGTI gathering that travels from city to city. This year, it is taking place in Richmond, KY on the EKU campus. For more info on the meeting:

It should be interesting to describe the panoply of practices within Paganism, but there appears to be a shocking lack of theological thought about why some people are LBGTI. Homosexuality and gender-switching appear in the myths, to be sure, but many of the Pagan faiths especially the versions of Wicca - are polarity (God and Goddess) oriented. I've found a few items of interest, but anyone out there with ideas on the subject should feel free to post them here!

Once again, a United Church of Christ's gay-inclusive ad is denied access to the airwaves. Meanwhile, right-wing fundamentalists find those same doors open.

Mr. Pwyll - 1988-2006

I am sad to report that, after a brief but severe illness, we had to have Mr. Pwyll, my feline companion, euthanized. He had a bladder tumor and end-stage renal disease. Yesterday, the vet told us his body was shutting down and he would only live another day or two, max. He was suffering, and we decided to spare him some of it.

There are many, many things I could say about Pwyll, but I'm unable to gather those thoughts at the moment. We did find out, from the vet, that he was born some time in February (her son was born in March of the SAME YEAR). So, he was a full 18 years in age.

Thanks to everyone for their concern. Thanks also to the person who said he would be chasing 72 virgin mice through paradise. I think he'd prefer 72 women petting him, though. :)
