Well, do I start with the Gurkhas and the Governments decision or the fact that next week the Interception Modernisation Programme goes to the House of Commons?
Not now, I will blog later about those.
I'm going to talk (rant) about Joseph Nicolosi, a psychologist who claims he can "cure homosexuality".
He's in London to address a religous conference held by the the Anglican Mainstream group.
My message to Joseph Nicolosi is I'm gay, and very proud of it so bog off.
Being gay is not a disease, I think realistically I knew when I was about 9 or 10. I came out when I was 16 and I know my Mum struggled with it for a while but we overcame that and are now great friends as well as Mum and Son.
I'm in a strong and happy relationship, and have been for a long time. Its our 16th anniversary this year.
So Joseph Nicolosi instead of causing hatred and stirring up resentment why don't you turn your attention and channel your energy into fighting real diseases like cancer? A disease that rips families apart - gay or straight - a disease that is a killer?
Go on, you might then make a difference in this world.
