Liberal & Christian

Liberalism is the political expression of "love thy neighbor;" Conservatism seeks to explain why you're not my neighbor.

To really follow Jesus, I have to defend America’s oppressed: women, Blacks, Hispanic, gays, muslims…

When I was young, I spent hours sitting on the edge of my bed holding a razor blade above my wrist trying to get the “courage.” 
When I think of what I’d have missed…
That was before my son was born (and after), I hadn’t yet meet Pam or our kids… And now, grandkids. 
There’s a lot I would have missed. 
I survived because of my writing and, in Robin Williams’ case, I imagine his comedy covered a lot of pain. 
If you are depressed, I know how you feel and I know that thinking about suicide give you some release in the same way I used to get a strange satisfaction from visualizing myself hanging. 
But, before you do something irreversible in the spur of the moment, give this number a call and talk it over with someone.
