I enjoy laughing and music together as much as anyone, so I recommend Todrick Hall’s “Bitch Perfect” video. Within these short minutes of your time you will see the butch versus fem issue raised once again. In a recent blog post of mine, I express my personal opinion about feminized speech and behaviors of gay …

Thinking of #God and #freewill:

I am not the only writer who’s science fiction storytelling depicts a world in which there is no God. My novel Moon Men Deep Inside http://MoonMenDeepInside.com tells the story of a world about 300 years from now in which a top-secret agency based deep inside the moon uses time travel to the past to control and manipulate people. The time travel agents use a time machine to get to the past and there they manipulate people’s behaviors and actions. The unfortunate people who get manipulated by the time travel agents have their free will taken from them. My novel explores what would happen if such a powerful agency actually existed that could take away people’s free will.

What if I had chosen instead to write about this futuristic world that happened to be like our world in which God does exist? How would I, as a writer, deal with God’s response?

In this thought experiment, let’s suppose that God is an interventionist deity like many people believe is true. We would rightfully expect that God would intervene (or should intervene) so that a top-secret time-travel agency would not succeed in taking away people’s free will.

When I was in my youth, I was assured many times that God wants people to have free will. How anybody mortal could possibly know what God wants is a question for which I never got a credible answer, however.

But, I was taught during my formative years the foundational truth that God would never just sit back and let anyone take away people’s free will. If God did nothing in response to attempts to take away people’s free will, certainly humanity might start perceiving that God was dead. Or, if God were still alive, and God did nothing to stop the taking away of free will, humanity might expect that God was not doing a very good job. Moreover, I accepted what I was taught as a kid: God is divine and God never makes any mistakes whatsoever.

I grew up believing that having free will was not necessarily a gift from God. It more accurately is a responsibility. If someone has the free will to choose to be bad and to do bad things, then the outcomes of that person’s behaviors must be seen as rooted in their choice to be bad and to do bad things. Free will means freely choosing. It is not possible for anyone who has free will to be bad and to do bad things by accident.

Yet, it was not possible for me to miss seeing how religions teach that God punishes bad people and their bad behavior. God gave everyone free will, yet religions make it very clear that anyone can be punished for making free choices in life that go in directions that religions tell us God really doesn’t want. Similarly, many people also believe that God rewards good people and their good behavior, too. God gave everyone free will, yet religions make it very clear that anyone can be rewarded for making free choices in life that go in directions that religions tell us God really does want.

So, I ended up becoming very confused. if religions teach that God punishes and rewards people based on their choices, then what is it exactly that is “free” when considering choices? A “free” choice would be such only if there were no payoff as a result of, or connected to, the choice, right? Put another way, can you really be considered “free” to choose to be good and to do good things if you are compelled by religion towards good as a payoff or reward?
I came to believe that there’s a whole lot of “buying” or “bribing” by religions taking place in our world. There are basically two sides to these transactions. One side emphasizes religion’s promises of a reward. The other side focuses upon the religion’s threats of punishment. Some religions seem to survive just fine without killing people in brutal ways like beheading them. Others not so much.

I inevitably came to wonder: Is it possible for any person to choose to be good and do good things—or to choose to be bad and do bad things—without any consideration of religion or the belief in God? Are the concepts of “good” and “bad” (or “right” and “wrong”) rooted exclusively within religion or the belief in God? Why can’t we figure those things out on our own?

And so it was that I wrote my novel Moon Men Deep Inside http://MoonMenDeepInside.com–to explore a world in which there is no God and watch what happens when human beings who do not have free are controlled and manipulated by a top-secret agency. Are the people in that science fiction world able to figure out “good” versus “bad” or “right” versus “wrong”?

There once was a unique print publication known as Katharsis, named after the ancient Greek word meaning purging, cleansing, and purification. Started in 1987, it was a minor underground or subculture artifact. After the Internet was launched, the print publication morphed into a website that remained online until the early 2000s.

The specified target audience was adult males with a college education who worked as respected professionals in fields such as corporate industry, military service, religion, medicine, law, education, politics, and business. It aimed to provide men age 18 and up with guilt-free, therapeutic release of their built-up emotional, psychological and/or physical tensions.

To achieve the desired catharsis all the visitor had to do was view the fantasy-oriented fiction and images online. The intended outcome was a man's momentary renewal and restoration that easily could become addictive for him so he would come back and seek more.

#gayfriendly If you go shopping at this holiday time of year and you are a gay man like me, you should know this:
The Human Rights Campaign just released its 2015 Corporate Equality Index, which rates hundreds of companies on their friendliness to LGBTs. That's handy for a whole host of reasons, whether you're job hunting or trying to figure out where to invest. But at this time of year, it's especially convenient for holiday-shopping. We've combed through the report and…
