Gay ‘Marriage’ – Gayness isn’t Either/Or
and Civil Unions with Penalties as a Solution

In Psychology, Gayness is a 1-10 Scale
and Most People are Somewhere in the Middle

The Daily Walk with Miracles, April 15, 2014, by Paul Evans:

Coming from a liberal background, with a father and grandfather who were New Deal democrats, and having some gay and lesbian acquaintances, it is normal for me to be interersted in the topic of gay rights and to know quite a lot about it. Now, as an honestly unorthodox but conservative and nonpartisan writer, I also bring that perspective to the whole civil rights issue of gay marriage. (I realze that many people doubt my crentials as a conservative, and that’s OK, but for example on issues of abortion and entitlements, I do have basically conservative positions, whereas I feel liberals do not mean to be wrong on those issues, it’s just that they do not understand the reasons for the conservative postion on them well.) I also bring the persepective of a college-educated person with a degree in the physical sciences to any analyis I might make.

I am a practicing heterosexual myself — I always have been straight and always will be. However, the concerns of the LGBT community have been a common element in my experience over the last quarter century. I have been exposed for all that time to a good understanding of how these people feel, having known quite a few gay and lesbian people personally. I am somewhat knowledgeable as to what their rights are and are not in America, and what their concerns are. I also recently have come to understand the conservative position on the issue of gay marriage, although I do not understand this nearly as well. There is much that I have to learn, and I believe that liberals and conservatives in general have such suspicion of each other that this makes understanding the truth of the matter difficult, but not impossible.

I have learned that conservative object not just on religious grounds, but on economic grounds, too. They feel that there is a harsh penalty which they are forced to pay the government because of their own marriages, and believe quite logically that any gay marriages shoud necessitate that gays should have to pay that penalty if they are allowed to have any kind of marriage, also. I believe, from what I understand, that gays and lesbians know this, and are willing to do just that — pay the same penalties, economically, for the priviledge of marriage as do people with traditional marriages.

Another even more difficult issue that must be resolved involves the whole question of raising children. Most gays and lesbians insist that they should be allowed to raise children in exactly the same way as do straight couples. Many conservatives object to this on purely moral grounds. They say that it is prejudicing a child’s future and sexual orientation.

Here I am just trying to make an honest analysis based on what the logic of what I do know, and what that tells me. In the past, when I was a Unitarian-Universalist, I shared the U-U’s feelings of joy and outrage as events played out on the political stage. Since then I have made it a practice to keep up on that sort of news, although not as closely as I perhaps should have. All of this kept the whole issue of gay ‘marriage’ and gayness in my own mind a good deal of the time.

I went to a Unitarian-Universalist church for many years, and not only is gayness accepted by U-U’s, but they were the first church to allow LGBT ministers to be ordained. Other churches which have followed suit in allowing gay ministers include the United Church of Christ, the Episopalian church, and the at least one Presbyterian denomination, and likely others about which I am not aware. (Leave a comment if there is incorrect or outdated material in this article, I’d be glad to hear from you.)

Who’s Gay and Who’s Straight

Let me introduce the whole topic with an anecdote from my youth. From about age 20, I have always been troubled, personally, by this whole issue. In 1977, when I was engaged to a very beautiful girl from Columbus, Ohio, I spent a month camping in Yellowstone National Park. The Director of the Yellowstone Institute, a wonderful man named Hugh Crandall, allowed me to camp near Mammouth Hot Springs, in the northwest corner of Yellowstone. While taking courses for college credit from the Yellowstone Institute, Hugh asked me to please allow a transient student to stay in my tent. This graduate student from the University of Maryland had hitchhiked out to Yellowstone, and I came to know this ‘John’ (we’ll call him) well. We did some drinking together and shared some of the same courses at the Institute.

But ‘John’ was gay, although I didn’t know it at first, and his gayness would soon constitute a rude awakening for me about the whole issue. Before this I had never given homosexuality any conscious thought at all. One night after a round of drinking in the tent, after I had fallen asleep, I awoke with ‘John’ on top of me kissing me. When I finally woke up from my drunken stupor (it was a a fifth of whiskey and a six pack of warm Dr. Peppers), I thought about it for a few seconds, in mind-blowing astonishment. Then I pushed him off of me. Without getting furious, I let ‘John’ know in no uncertain terms that I was engaged — to a woman with whom I was very much in love. (I only wish that this wonderful lady could read this, and somehow might give mee another chance at a relationship.) It was at that early time in my life when the whole issue became personally important to me, and gay sex and marriage have never quite let up in being issues that matter a lot to me.

The act of homosexual sex, I realized from the time of my Yellowstone encounter, is abhorrent to me: I am as straight as an arrow. That’s what I thought, and that’s what I know for a fact, then and now. I am a gentle person, perhaps even somewhat effeminant in some regards, and quite artistic, and I am somewhat passive. To the extent that I am now less passive and more assertive, this is learned behavior, and is quite recent. I have had people at various times in my life assume that I am gay. In 1982 a gay man in a bar moved to attack me when I rejected his homosexual approach on me, which further troubled me about the whole issue. Once or twice I received emails from anonymous gay men voicing their ‘concern’ and asking me if it wasn’t time to ‘come out of the closet.’ Yet, I just deleted those emails, and I don’t see where the hell those gays might think they have a right to trouble a good and decent soul with their prosletyzing. But a little less than a year ago a knowledgeable and highly educated (straight) friend told me that gay versus straight isn’t as simple as either/or, that is to say, gay or straight.

As you will see, gayness isn’t an either/or issue. Psychologists can measure gayness on a one to ten sliding scale. From what my friend later told me, it’s a simple, short, multiple choice test, and if you really wanted to know, maybe you get yourself tested. I know that I never have. Since the act of homosexual sex is and always has been abhorrent to me, it isn’t an issue, is it?

On a scale of 1 being totally straight and 10 being completely gay, my friend said that he guessed I would test as about a 3. That really blew my mind at the time, but it did explain a lot in my life. Most people, claimed an article I further researched this question in, test somewhere in the middle. Gayness then becomes for many a choice, not a decision already made by God, except in the sense of genetics.

And anyway, aren’t gay people the offspring of heterosexual parents? So in what way is it the gay people’s fault that they were born that way? It’s in the genetic code. The reason that God’s perfect human genome is this messed up is because we modify our natural genetically pure foods with genetically modified foods which are ruining the human genome, messing with God’s perfect genetic code. I don’t need to say, then, that the more natural foods you eat, the better off you are going to be. Many grocery chains and even fast food restaurants are picking up on this opportunity to serve humanity better. At the same time, for example, fast food outlets like McDonald’s are using better ingredients and they are making more money too! Capitalist competition from other fast food chains is driving the engine of using better, more natural foods, which customers prefer. Competition, unfettered, uninfluenced competition, is the American way!

Getting back to the discussion on gay marriage and gayness, with me as maybe a 3 on the scale, the act of homosexual sex is abhorrent for me to think about, so, yes, I am not gay. But what if you were a 5 or a 6 or a 7 on the scale? You’d be royally screwed in the society we live in. Very likely homosexual acts would be not just intriguing but compelling to you, and you might well decide sooner or later in your life to become gay or lesbian. Only a smaller percentage of gays and lesbians, I imagine, would test at 7 or above.

Homosexuality in America: The Church Weighs In

We have seen an accelerating movement towards more rights for gay people, but progress is slow, for some of the reasons I have spoken of, above As I will explain, while I am not for gay marriage, per se, I do support civil unions and believe that LGBT people should enjoy some of the legal priviledges AND penalties that any other American citizens have in more traditional marriages. This is also the same position The Daily Walk with Miracles takes editorially and officially.

The conservative position is that homosexuality is ‘abhorrent to God’ and they basically oppose any rights whatsoever — or at least as few as possible — for gay and lesbian couples. Liberals want it all, full rights for gay marriage and all legal rights that any other Americans enjoy.

I feel strongly, as an informed conservative myself on social issues (such as abortion), that conservatives as a movement have got this issue basically right. Liberals have to give on one very major right, too. The whole issue is tearing at the fabric of toleration and biapartisanship today. Those for or against gay marriage are quite hateful towards each other and each other’s positions. The two sides make personal attacks verbally, and sometimes physically on each other. I feel this is only because of a failure to understand the science psychology can now bring into the picture. I also think that conservatives and liberals need to re-examine the other side’s positions and try to see what is central in each side’s belief system so that there can be progress towards a reconcilliation.

Central to conservatives’s objections about homosexuality is the whole issue of gay marriage. They feel that marriage is holy and central to their faith, and thus the strength and even sometimes fury of their objections to gay marriage. But why not simply allow gays and lesbians to marry, and simply just not call it ‘marriage,’ while limiting the legal protections given in such unions and requiring payments and penalties that those in straight marriagess must pay? Civil unions, with all the rights, responsibilities and penalties of traditional marriage per se, seems to me to be one possible answer. It addresses conservative’s concerns about the sacredness of marriage, while allowing gays and lesbians to de facto be able to marry and have some civil rights of those in traditional marriages. What is wrong with that? Pope Francis, who is often accused of being too liberal, addressed the whole question a month or so ago. He said that he would not presume to judge anyone based upon the fact that they were gay or lesbian, even if they lived together. What is abhorrent to God, he said, as does the Bible, is the ACT of homosexual sex. The Old Testament is quite serious in saying that God finds the act of homosexual sex ‘abhorrent,’ and this in terms fuels further hatred about gay rights from conservatives.

Most liberals want all the LGBT community to enjoy all the rights granted to any other America citizen under the Constitution. Gays and Lesbians feel as though they would be unequal, second class citizens if they did not have to right to have actual gay marriage. I sympathize with them. But gays, lesbians and liberals in general need to realize how central to conservatives religious belief system the ‘sacred’ and how they feel that marriage is ordained by God to be between a man and a woman. Liberals and the LGBT community need to give on this one and accept civil unions in the way I have described it.

Pope Francis and His Viewpoint

There is a further consideration. The new ‘liberal’ Pope Francis has stated that he personally would not judge a person simply because they are gay. But he cautions us, it is not being gay which is ‘abhorrent’ to God, but rather, the act of homosexual sex itself. That is an ‘abomination’ to God. Let people of the same sex who love each other marry in civil unions, but be very careful, people that you do not become an abomination to God and have gay sex.

Thank you for putting up with my long discussion of this. ~ Paul Evans

‘EVANS PRECEPTS’:
The Principles that my Father Lived By

To Honor My Father,
Dr. Jack E. Evans, 1925 – 2012, R.I.P.

The Daily Walk with Miracles, Updated April 5, 2014, originally published April 2, 2014, posthumous by Dr. Jack E. Evans, Ph.D., with additional principles by Paul Evans. Photograph of Jack E. Evans is from April, 2010, and is released into the Public Domain:

Introductory note by Paul Evans: Our Blog Honors my Dad, Dr. Jack E. Evans, 1925-2012, R.I.P Shortly before he had to go to Westview Manor, a fine Christian nursing home in Wooster, Ohio — I think he dictated this to me about 2005 — dad provided me with some of the principles for living in which he strongly believed. He hoped that I would base my life upon these ideas so he wanted to make absolutely certain that I would not forget them, no matter what. At the time, my logic was not so good and I was somewhat mentally ill. But dad had successfully taught me these ideas, and many more vital ideas of his that were important to him, throughout our lives. I spent almost all of my life living in the same home together with my orignal nuclear family, and it was natural that we believed in the same things. Many younger people of course go off and get married, but my mental illness constrained my life in many ways and oddly, I loved living with my family and we were extremely close, although he did becoime somewhat estranged from me at the end of his life. I used to be a knee-jerk liberal. Dad had a much better understandiing of what’s going on in the world than I do, and he was upset at me because of my ideological liberalism, which in my case verged on unpatriotic, although I didn’t know this.

I add my own contribution, a listing of five principles which are also a big part of who I am. These precepts are mainly ideas and concepts that I have learned since I started doing news and politics, starting in 2008 and continuing into the present.

I have this list of ideas he lived by right next to me right now, almost two years after Dad died, and want to give them to you. That way, you can have the same, absoluteluy wonderful and moral principles upon which you might well even decide to base your lives, easily accessible to you, should you think these are as special as I do.

My dad Jack Evans in April 2010, while living in Westview Manor nursing home, holding a cup of his favorite drink, cappucino” />

At first, these ideas may seem strangely liberal, but then dad was a New Deal democrat who loved FDR, at the same time he had a lot of very patriotic, and even conservative ideas, politically. His own dad, Skipper, a career marine officer, was during his career very successful. Skipper finished his distinguished career by being the , commanding officer of a batallion of marines who were the last troops ever stationed in Washington, D.C., durng World War II. ‘Skipper’, my dad told me, always referred to any sitting President as ‘the Chief’. When reading these ideas, keep in mind that dad was a marine captain in WWII, worked for about 13 years in intelligence, mostly for the CIA, and was a Yale Ph.D. who taught Russian language and literature in several major universities. He also had a master’s in Russian history from Georgetown. Dad dictated these ideas to me, and I wrote them down, very nearly word for word, and with punctuation he approved of. Here are the ideas upon which he based his life:

SOCIO-POLITICAL-RELIGIOUS Ideas

1 – 4: FDR’s Four Freedoms

1. Freedom of Speech
2. Freedom of Religion
3. Freedom from Fear
4. Freedom from Want

5. Justice I. – the Rule of Law
6. Justice II. – a Balance between Punishment and Mercy

7. Rationalsism: – If you do not understand what you want to believe in or strive for, you do not know what you are striving for. Socratic method is necessary: ask questions and define your terms.

8. – The Lessons of History

9. – For Humanists, "From each according to his ability to each according to his needs," may be the essence of true religion. Most people are far from being ready for socialism.

10. – Judgment of ideas, etc., can be made on the basis of, "What will they think of this in 50 years?"

ETHICAL-MORAL-SANITY Ideas:

1. – Truth
2, – Compassion
3. – Duty
4. – Allegory of the ape in the Cincinnati Zoo. Subjectivity of both beliefs and understanding. Very few people ‘speak the same language.’
5. – Enlightened self interest
6. Shades of gray. (composed of darker and lighter pixels). Not black and white.
7. – A rule to keep your sanity:
Nothing is too strange to have happened, BUT – Many things are too strange to be believed.
8. – It should be realized that life contains an element of the horrific.

Ideas or Precepts from Paul Evans

1. – The sacredness of life.

2. – The prime consideration of the Judeo-Christian tradition.

3. – The State Department Doctrine of American Exceptionalism: The special role of the United States on the world’s foreign policy and security stage.

4. – The pre-emminent role of the Constitution in guaranteeing the endurance of the Republic.

5. – The First Prinicple of Unitarian-Universalism: "The inherent worth and dignity of every human being."

Truly, God is Love
Praise Jesus!

Who and What God Is

Paul Evans: Here is my own attempt at a ‘proof’ that God exists and that in fact, He is Love itself: It’s hard to understand how something immaterial like Love, and that it can be a real ‘thing’ and force in the universe. I think that’s why some people have a hard time believing that God truly is Love or even that He exists. To some extent this is only a proof that God exists if you believe beforehand that He is Love, and that depends of if you believe the New Testament is at least somewhat literally true. It also depends on your own experience of Love in a very imperfect world.

I’m sure that the materialist philosphers will debunk this, but it is very real to me. If Love is a force for good, which we all must admit, then a ‘force’ is certainly something that is real, right? The Bible certainly teaches that God is Love. And we know that Love is real, too, and we are caring, good souls who just have some problems with our faith. FAITH: You make a decision or choice that you will believe that something is true, and from that point, it gets a lot easier to simply have Faith in God as real, that Love is real. We can’t prove this, but these are the facts. These are just reality. Love is. It has been said that ‘Love is all there is’ in the universe. Everything else is an illusion.

In John 1:1 is the pre-emminent quote from the Bible about just who and what God is: "God is Life, in Him is no darkness at all." You can better evaluate who and what God is, if you can see that Life and Love are sort of interchangeable. The quote is quite clear: LIFE. God is Life. And the word “is” cannot be other than “is”. So we have the fact that God is Life, but He is also Love, and Light, too, where there is “no darkness at all.” The “no darkness at all can be thought of as, purely good, without fault, or it can be thought of as perfect Light, does that make sense?

Also, sometimes when the Bible uses the word “Love”, I wish they had used the word “care” or “caring” as in Logos, where if you research the term LOGOS you find that the one true value of Jesus, is “caring.” It is easier for us lowly humans to use the word “CARE” because to us, use of the word Love is tainted by our less than perfect experience of “love.” If we use the word “care” instead, or else “kindness” then it is clearer to some of us.

I choose to say, God IS Love, and these are the words which are most meaningful to me in a description of what force in the universe God is. God is Love.

From my recent experience reading in the Old Testament, it becomes clear to me that I used to have a poor understanding even of the use of the word “care”. To truly care, you must not only be KIND, as in the way Jesus lived his life on earth, but you also must be MORAL, as in much of the values taught in the Old Testament, CARING is KINDNESS and it is also Morality. I think a lot of liberals miss that fact, and view caring just in terms of kindness. God requires that we be kind, and also that we must lead moral, upright lives.

God is all these things: Love, Care — used both actively and passively as a verb and also a state of mind — caring, and God is Light, and pure lack of darkness, where there is no darkness at all, OH God is really everything good, and pure, and perfect. But let me get back to my silly idea of using the word LOVE as a sort of proof that God exists. It’s really a question we can ask ourself only in the context of choosiing the predicate, if we are going to use a word and call it God, well they call the Bible the Holy Word of God, because it explains the use of words the best of any source anywhere. If you want to understand language, and words and know how to think and how to write, you need to read the Bible, the Word of God. For me, the 1611 King James Authorized version is the best. Different churches and different Christian denominations use language differently because they use different editions of the Bible.

My pastor, Kevan Franklin, and the United Church of Christ in general, is issuing a clarion call for there to finally be Unity in the different denominations, that we might all be gathered together in ONE CHURCH, God’s Holy Church, in perfect Unity, united at last. That was Jesus’ last request before he ascended into heaven, that there be unity among His people.

In the beginning, God said, “I AM” and the universe began.

Why Christians Should Support Israel,
with Video: a Security Update from Rabbi Eckstein

Peace? What if You Were Israel?Featured Article

The Daily Walk with Miracles, April 3, 2014, by Paul Evans. Photograph of a cup of tea with a slice of citrus fruit floating in it is from an unknown source:

From the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews at http://ifcj.org:

Press release: "The Fellowship is the world’s largest channel of Christian support for Israel and the charity distributing the most aid in Israel annually. Led by its founder and president Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein, The Fellowship now raises more than $120 million per year to assist Israel and the Jewish people through extensive humanitarian aid programs. The organization has offices in Jerusalem, Chicago, Toronto, and Seoul."

"Speaking from the mamad (safe room) in his home, Rabbi Eckstein shares where he was when the unprecedented rocket-attack sirens sounded in Tel Aviv. He explains why these security measures are vitally important and what The Fellowship is doing to help keep Israelis safe during this time of crisis."

Paul Evans: Many people who sympathize with liberal ideas want desperately for there to be peace in the middle east, and I strongly want peace, too. But what if you were Israel? How would you feel about peace in the middle east then? Israel has the reputation in the United States of currently being a pretty conservative place, with a ‘neocon’ sorts of mentality. The Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, is thought of as the arch neocon in the middle east. I know for a fact that this just isn’t true. No one wants peace in the middle east more than Israel. They have exhausted many efforts over many years to avoid the next middle east war, which might be World War III.

So how does Israel avoid war at this point? President Obama has been in negotiations with Iran as I write this, and I read today on AOL that the negotations have been pursued at a very high level. Did you know that In Israel, according to the video, below, one million people, one-fifth of the population of Israel, are now living in bomb shelters. God, I regret this, but this sounds like we are very close to war. Yet only God can say what lies in the future for the fate of Israel and the prospects of peace. Fate such as this is in His hands. God, among other attributes, has the power of Fate in His hands, and the future of mankind, too.

Also in the video, Rabbi Eckstein speaks of a ‘protective shield of prayer’ which is enabled by supporters in the United States and around the world. Please say a prayer for Israel, and pray to God that war might be avoided.

I strongly believe that this diet and these ideas I had five years ago and as recently as today are nothing I should take credit for, in all due humility. They were inspired, I am certain, by Jesus out of the infinity of His Love for me, and of course He must have planned that I would one day make them known to help everyone. How many millions of people must also rely on similar miracles of inspiration from The Lord Jesus Christ, whether they even realize this? Truly, Love is infinite and God is Love.

Weekly Address: President Obama Offers
Easter and Passover Greetings

Barack Obama’s Easter Message to America

The Daily Walk with Miracles, republished March 30, 2014, first published March 30, 2013, by Paul Evans. Video courtesy of YouTube and Whitehouse. The embrace of Christianity in this Easter video is truly touching, and further cements my understanding that the President is in reality a very Christian person. Commentary by owner/webmaster of The Daily Walk with Niracles Paul Evans.

Barack Obama’s Easter Message to America,
Delivered One Year Ago Today

Whitehouse — Weekly Address: President Obama Offers Easter and Passover Greetings: President Obama uses his weekly address to mark a sacred time for the millions of Americans celebrating Easter and Passover, and he calls on everyone to use this time to reflect on the common values we share as a nation. The President says that this is a chance to embrace loved ones, give thanks for our blessings, and help those less fortunate as we celebrate our individual traditions as well as the thread of humanity that connects us all.

Mr. Obama went beyond his recent embrace of a more pure Christianity to attain to a very faithful address which must touch all people of Christian faith.

Commentary by Paul Evans: I now try my very best to tell the truth about things, no matter what ‘side’ — liberal or conservative — this supports. For example, while many conservative are certain that President Obama is no sort of Christian, it is a strongly felt belief of mine that Obama is in fact a strong Christian who simply wishes to represent all Americans, whether Christian or secular. That’s why he has toned down his Christianity, on the face of it. I feel that the President should unabashedly claim his faith before all of America, and no longer labor under conservative’s false belief that he is not really a Christian.

I still have a lot of liberal ideas, too, but in other areas I am conservative in my views. While I have some economically progressive sorts of ideas, in such areas as my own Christian faith and for example, abortion and some as, parts of ‘Obamacare’ I have quite conservatibe viewpoints. For example, I do not at all like the individual mandate and feel that it’s statutory and Constitutional illegality alone is a sufficient reason for the President to work with congress to cancel this aspect of Obama’s healthcare bill.

I am still working on reading the whole Bible, particularly the Old Testament, which I don’t know well, and generally I know I need to read the whole Bible at least once. I am so fascinated by it when I do read it that I may never get through the whole Bible, but I know I need to make time for it. Only then will I begin to have a handle on just where the overall Truth about life lies. I have been told by knowledgeable Christians that at first, the best and easiest way to read the Bible is as if through the eyes of a child, without thinking about it, just reading. I learn more about what’s true in life from it every time I read a passage, in the Gospels or anywhere in the Bible. Until I do read the a lot more of Bible, or even all of it, most of my understanding is from the Gospels. Please keep this in mind when you read any religious content on our site. I do the very best I can for you. Working on The Daily Walk with Miracles is to help people and also to atone for my past sins, as a form of repentence, and serve God the best that I am able to.
