Pious Piety: Speaking the Truth in Love


To the entire LGBT Community: I’m sorry.
I’ve recently had the chance to speak to Jessica and expressed my deepest regret and sorrow to her over how I spoke to her that day. She accepted my apology and we are still quite good friends.

*I don’t normally write or speak of myself in the third person(it’s a little bit weird, I know). I was writing under a different pseudonym at the time.*

    • Apart from religion I don’t know why it makes any difference. It certainly doesn’t to me now. So when I apologized to her I told her I was sorry we even asked as we had no business even asking the question.

  2. Compartmentalization. Cherry Picking to you and me. The only way to handle cognitive dissonance.
