My name is Mark Stephen Haynes. I am a Navy veteran, and member of the Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels, currently working as a shift lead at Walgreen’s as I near semi-retirement. I am confirmed in both the Roman Catholic and Episcopal Churches. I am socially and politically progressive. I am a widower and grandfather. I am a gay Christian.
The Evangelical right is wrong.
Read Jesus’ words; He was (and is) progressive. His words call for tolerance, not judgment. He calls for acceptance, not rejection. He calls on us to feed the hungry and clothe the naked. Jesus calls for love. Much of what you hear from the conservative right is not loving; it is hateful.
This is my way of standing up against hate and bigotry. This is my way of sharing the Good News. This is my way of contributing to the cause of inclusion, acceptance, compassion, empathy, generosity, fairness, and responsibility.
Read my blog, and have a Blessed Day!
