Love in a Complex Cruel world

If you read my archives, it will become apparent that I love love. I believe it to be the most magickal experience.

Sticking to my obsession I have started a new blog with my Partner.

Here a taste of what is happening over there…

When You care too much/Same sex marriage:

First, some happy news: Congrats to Argentina on having their first same-sex marriage and to the happy newlyweds.
( note: post may contained heavy doses of sarcasm, self-righteousness, straight privilege and evilness)
I honestly believe that what makes me a somewhat decent human being is that I do not care * that* much about people.
It’s not that I don’t care at all, I just don’t care as much as the common American. There are a heck of a lot of Americans who spend their days worrying about who people are, what they believe, what they do and who they love.
Some of the more compassionate types go around banging their heads against the wall, praying to the spirits of No sex land because they care about the moral health of every single human being. Phew!
I don’t know how they do it. I can’t count the times I haven’t even had the energy to Pretend to care about what someone was saying. Let alone care about their soul. Truth be told, I care less about your or your soul. Or whether you are going to hell.
Besides, my own Wiccan soul is doomed. So I’ll worry about myself and you do you.
I am not completely heartless. I do care about equality for all. But really there are some selfish motives behind that. After all,equality for all means equality for me. Right?
I do care about  a person’s ability to love who they want without backlash. To be who they are without legal, physical, mental and every kind of abuse throw at them.
But this kind of compassion is weak compared to all those people whoharass work to make others *better* than they are.
Sadly, it is not in human nature to be grateful to people trying to help youconform  suffer improve. So I got a little advice for all those caring types.
You are wasting your time.
Even if you fight and succeed at promoting Un-American, Anti- civil rights, Anti- human and Anti-love laws, that dictate who marries who and who adopts who, you still are not changing anyone. You are not saving anyone.Period. They will be the same people they always were.
So instead of wasting time obsessing over other people’s life, try getting your own. Instead of caring who loves who, focus on your own relationships. Stop telling others who they should be and what they should believe. It only shows that you are uncomfortable with yourself and your faith. The really faithful help those in *actual* need and don’t pretend to be morally superior dictators.
I will leave you with a quote from Larrese at his Argentina wedding ceremony:

To all those who are afraid … those who are homophobic … I tell them, don’t worry; this doesn’t affect you,” Larrese said. “You have nothing to fear. Fear is the opposite of love. Any phobia can be cured with love. There is nothing love cannot cure.

End note: this post is not meant as a slam for people who rightful care and fight  their rights and their allies. ~

    Nice going, Sisou! But, you are mistaken about those so-called *righteous* people. For them, their “cause” is a passion, but they don’t really know the first thing about compassion. For that they have to be able to feel empathy. And, to do that you have to be able to fight your indoctrination. A young mind is just SO malleable. It should be illegal to fill it with any one-way kind of thinking. — YUR
