I'm not very good at confessing. It sometimes turns into self-defense and justification. I have a very strong compulsion to defend myself against even the most mundane criticisms. I'm done with significant and meaningful.
My mom and dad did something that few people ever do: They walked their talk. They cut ties with their longtime church because they realized that their gay grandson wasn't welcome there. And they set out to find a truly open and affirming church. I knew how hard this was for them.
