This is taken right in front of the Alcazaba in Almeria.

I'm 64 years old. I was born and raised a Roman Catholic, being Irish. As an adult, I was a Jehovah's Witness for about fifteen years. I'm separated for the last three years. I have two sons who are both grown up and living their own lives. I'm an avid reader, fascinated by mythology, religion and psychology. I love all kinds of music, play video games and watch TV. I exercise under duress. Although technically bisexual now, I have never had any homosexual interest during my married life (perhaps it was repressed) and don't want to start now. I would like to meet a woman to share my life with, to talk and share and laugh and have sex and make life worthwhile as the world goes mad around us.

1,000 Years Ago, the Catholic Church Didn’t Care If You Were Gay - [gayety.co]
brentan comments on Apr 17, 2019:
It got complicated with the apostle Paul. He used words that we can't really translate into modern English. All I know is he talked of lots of types of activities that would make you ineligible for salvation. And homosexuals have been scapegoated by Christians so that other lifestyles would not come under condemnation. But they are condemned - greed, adultery, drunkenness etc. We have to really make our minds up about homosexuality. Society had the good sense to mostly mind its own business about homosexuality for a long time but now I think we have to do more than that. Political correctness has driven condemnation underground in many countries but the negativity remains. The issue is always male homosexuality and the anus and attendant feces. The physical abhorrence and moral disgust came to a head when AIDS spread in the 1980s. It seems the health issue has been dealt with thanks to better hygiene but nonetheless there is still a problem with the 'other'. There seems to be a great reluctance to openly discuss the matter so I fear the problem will continue indefinitely.

brentan comments on Jan 16, 2019:
I think it's all about the change in what men can provide to society. Their strength and their courage were really appreciated in the past. Technology and peacetime have reduced such a need for strength and bravery. Men need to re-train for the future but keep in mind the future might revert back to the ways of the past in a heartbeat. If that happens, Sheldon Cooper will need to turn into John Wayne mighty fast!

brentan comments on Apr 27, 2019:
It happens a lot. I think we become a target for all the anger people have against religion. I know from my Christian days how important the opportunity to see loved ones in the resurrection is even though I come from such a dysfunctional family I'm happy never to see them again. For me, the loss of the hope of everlasting life left a big hole in my heart.
Weirdness is just a side effect of my being awesome.
