My best friend is out of town on business. She’s out of town on business a lot and when she goes, I am mistress of her cats. She’s down to three indoors, but there is a new guy in the neighborhood that she’s been, feeding, FrontLining, and medicating for ear mites. I just need to fill his bowl outside when it gets empty. I mention this because the random-ness in the title of this entry comes from the drive home from her place, a drive which takes all of seven minutes and that’s only because the speed limit in town proper is 20 mph and the rest of the drive is gravel roads. It’s only four miles door-to-door.
I’ve been listening to a lot of college radio, the Wildcat 91.5. I forgot how much fun, how eclectic, how truly bizarre college radio is and it’s been a joy to rediscover something so outside the box—even in Kansas we have some “outside-the-box”. However they were in the Rap hour, or what passes for Rap in Kansas and I just don’t get it so I hit what I thought was the pre-set button for LAZR out of Lawrence. I’m right at the outside edge of their broadcast circle and can usually get it as far from Lawrence as where I work. But I missed the pre-set button.
Instead I hit the scan button. The first station was a female speaker, and people were laughing so I stopped the scan to listen. I can use all the chuckles I can find lately. About a minute into listening, it was clear that I was on a Christian radio station, but she was funny dammit. And I’ve spent enough time away from the Catholic Church and in a Spiritual Program of Recovery to not be offended every time someone mentions the big cheese. Sherry Rose something was her name. And she made me laugh talking about how she became a Christian at age 24 and wanted to marry a Christian man from a functional home. She found him and they’ve been married 15 years. They’ve been five of the happiest years of her life. You get the picture. She was spiritual, but funny. Now here comes the really random part. When her portion of the program was done, the announcer repeated her name and thanked me for listening to Focus on the Family.
I got chills, but I also thought that the woman who said the things she said about God’s plan for her and how God brought her out of the darkness of her spiritual void, I just thought that there is no way she can truly believe the things she just said if she was interested in seeing bad things happen to GLBT’s. I believe the majority of Christians have kinder feelings towards us, toward all their fellows, than their leaders do and that their day is coming, and with it comes ours.
