New Year’s Eve.


I was struck by the Pope’s simple message when illuminating the Christmas Tree in Gubbio.  He said: “This large tree is made up of many lights.  The last wish that I would like to make is that everyone may know how to bring a little light to the places where they live: in the family, at work, in the neighbourhood, in towns, in cities.  May each of us be a light for those nearby; may we step out of the selfishness which often closes hearts and makes us think only of ourselves; may be give a little attention and love to others.   
 
Every small act of kindness is like a light of this great tree.  Together with the other lights it is able to illuminate the obscurity of the night, even the darkest.”  To the Pope’s wish, as mine for the new year, I would add “May the world allow that one of these acts of kindness is for men to offer cock to each other.”

Gay Bishop.



Raymond Lahey, former bishop of Antigonish in Nova Scotia, was arrested in 2009 on charges of trying to pass child porn through the Canadian customs.  The latest news on him comes in an article in the Canadian Catholic Register.  It looks like the forensic psychiastrists examined and made public his whole sex life.  From this we can see that he likes porn, and, in particular, pictures of teenage boys.  The forensic psychiatrist dismisses the idea that he is a pedophile and defines him as  a gay man whose sexual experience consists of several one-night stands and a ten-year relationship with a man.  Lahey is reported as declaring his intention of taking up the relationship, which is with a layman, again when he gets out of prison.  
Lahey also seems to be into SM porn, but says he has never acted out his SM tendencies.  Of course, possessing underage porn is against Canadian law, and that cannot be condoned.  On the other hand, there is no evidence that Lahey ever had sex with anybody under age.  So we are rather left with a picture of a normally gay man.  But, it remains to be seen, how this will go down with Church people and authorities.  The Church is just not yet ready to accept that a bishop or a priest be an active gay man.  Further, the wrong in possessing underage porn is a kind of one-step removed offence against people, against the commandment to love one another.  Possession of underage porn condones its production, which is an offence against minors.  But this is far from being the same thing as actually abusing minors.

The Gift.



In another discussion group a follower of this blog told us that we, enhanced males, gays, homosexuals, devotees of Priapus or Phallus, servants of The Fuck, lovers of Cock, or whatever you want to call us, have a unique gift from God comparable to no other.  I like that way of thinking and see developing this gift for the enriching of humanity as a way of spirituality as deep and valuable as any received teachings on chastity and celibacy.
Like Patrick said in a recent comment the ideal world is one where men fuck each other rather than fight each other.  My follower’s advice is that we accept God’s gift, which he does not give to everyone, but to his chosen view.  We should thank God for choosing us as his special envoys in the midst of the world.  But, the writer, insists, though we may be a minority no one of us is alone.  There are plenty of us, ultimately, trying to learn to accept God’s gift and to be enhanced males, gay men, in the best way we can, which is enjoy all the men we can, when we can, freely and with conviction that we are giving certain glory to God, the author of our gift.

Genealogy 5

After Sarah’s death Abraham married again.  He had to be about 110 years old.  He had six sons by his second wife.  If that does not tell us already enough about the male vigour attributed to him, we can let ourselves be further impressed by the statement that he also had concubines.  Bear in mind, always that this is one of the venerated ancestors of Jesus, and in Jesus’ name wave after wave of his later disciples have preached the virtues of an asexual existence or, at least, a frigid monogamy.

Genealogy 4

Still on Abraham in the context of Jesus’ ancestors, there is this incident of swearing with the hand under the thigh.  That means, undoubtedly, taking a grip on the guy’s package, the source of life and masculine vigour.  It seems to be a procedure that dropped out of use way before Christ.  Christian mentalities are unlikely to revive it.  I, for one, would certainly be swearing lots of oaths if they did! Genesis 24:2-4 says: “Abraham said to his servant, the oldest of his house, who had charge of all that he had, ‘Put your hand under my thigh, and I will make you swear by the Lord, the god of heaven and of the earth, that you will not take a wife for my son from the daughters of the Canaanites, among whom I dwell, but will go to my country and to my kindred, and take a wife for my son Isaac.’”  Notice that the oath is actually sworn by God, but the gesture is taking hold of the most sacred place in the male anatomy.  It is interesting to think that from this oath sworn on the male focal point the descent of Jesus from Abraham was guaranteed.  I find that a powerful thought that has profound ramifications for me as an Enhanced Male.                                  
  I was thinking also about how this gesture of taking hold of a man’s package to swear on oath might be achieved.  If you think about it, you have the man standing before you, you reach down to take hold of his genitals and, normally you will need your free hand on his shoulder arm or waste, just to keep the balance of things, then your gaze will almost automatically rise to his eyes and the exchange and bonding man to man is complete, touch and vision, pleasure and intimacy, bond soul to soul.  Nothing could express better the fidelity of one man’s word to another, especially when the whole gesture is carried out in the sight of God.
