Here I am. 5 years later. Saying the same thing I said just over 5 years ago. It has been a long, annoying battle, and it's nowhere near over. Why would I consider this a long, annoying battle for myself? I'm married. I'm straight. This doesn't actually affect what I can do or not do. I'll give you two reasons: 1) I care about the people around me; 2) when the church you love and the conscience you trust say two different things, you have to dig deep to figure out which way you'll go. This has not been a fun process for me personally. But here I am 5 years later saying it again. Love is love. To all my friends out there who have been waiting for this day, here it is again. Let's hope it sticks this time.
