The world is a pretty big place.

I’m up early for a day off.

I’ve showered, had breakfast, and in a few minutes, I’ll be heading to my local American Red Cross location to donate blood.

This is partly due to my responsibility as a person, I believe. It’s also about helping where I can. I can do this, it will help people, why not?

I suppose there’s an element of faith in there too. I’m giving blood on a day that symbolizes the day that Jesus shed his blood on the cross. The irony is not lost on me.

As a white christian male in the USA, I’m not persecuted for anything at all. Oh, I may occasionally run across someone who doesn’t like me for who I am, but that’s pretty rare. For the record, I don’t really need a “religious freedom” law to be able to practice what I believe in. With, and for, whomever I want to share it with. No exceptions. I don’t go to church often anymore, but I know that Jesus would not turn anyone away. No exceptions.

That’s faith, and living in the belief that I’m not perfect, but I’m not helpless either. So if you’re asking me, I say take your stinkin’ “religious freedom” hate legislation and trash it. It is wrong, and it’s not hard to see why.

I hope your Passover or Easter is lovely, warm, and full of inclusion.

I support you… no conditions.
