Response to undergroundpanther (Original post)

17. I have difficulty with the father -forgiveness part myself.

My father disowned, then attempted to murder me because I didn't meet his heterosexist expectations. Extended members of the Phelps Klan fanned the flames of my bullying and banishment from their quaint, all hetero, all WHITE, all in f*cking lockstep redneck "patriot" community. It helps somewhat to vent my frustrations like this, and like you have expressed.
Those of a so called "Christian", or most any religious sect for that matter, seems to have a lot of victims of those who don't lock-step with their scriptural interpretations. Anger, if not dealt with effectively, at such pretentiousness is ultimately self-defeating. It's taken me many years and many painful memories, distancing myself from family who participated in my banishment.
7 years ago I was brutally assaulted in a hate crime. I got hit by a pickup truck on my bicycle and kicked in the head somewhere near 100 times while anti-gay epithets poured from the mouths of my attackers, albeit I was dazed from landing head first into a rock. It was only after a drug treatment trial that I came to the realization of how long-term PTSD'd I'd been for years regarding my family's rejection.
I want to reach out to you with a big. loving cyber-hug and hope.
