Does it seem as if
everywhere you turn you are faced with the issue of homosexuality? Are there more gay people today than in
ancient times? No, statistically
the percentage has always been very steady, and has historically remained less
than 10% of the world's population (10% of men are gay and 5% of women are
lesbian). I believe gay issues are
more prevalent, and gay people are more publicly outspoken today because our
conscience has been seared for too long and we, as a society, have become lazy
in the safety and ignorance of the I Know.
Consequently, we are in
need of awakening, progress and evolution. This awakening will come only by way of confrontation and by
asking some very difficult questions.
I will endeavor to be objective on this most divisive and subjective of
issues over the next few installments of the Weekly Eureka. Yet I will also dare to share the truth
that many have refused to see and acknowledge.
What truth is this? The truth that there may not be any clear answers. And, if there are no certain answers,
this undying issue may be less a search for truth and more a test of our love
for our fellow man. I believe that
this issue has come out of the closet - so to speak - at this point in
history so that the human spirit might evolve more inclusively and so that the
ignorance and intolerance of religion might dissolve permanently.

"The one permanent emotion
of the inferior man is fear - fear of the unknown, the complex, the
inexplicable. What he wants above
everything else is safety."
