Will St. Peter call your name?
This is the 21st Century: I would expect St. Peter to text me.
And as for being punished for being homosexual, I was made gay by St. Peter's own God. Take it up with him.
Plus in all (im)modesty, I practice more generosity, kindness, and other "Christian" virtues than most so-called Christians I know. If I can't make it past the Pearly Gates, then there's a whole lot of holier-than-thou Bible-thumpers who should be thrown into the fiery pit along with me.
Just tonight, at the Cinco de Mayo celebration I attended, and posted about elsewhere, a Black woman came up to me as we were leaving. I had noticed her earlier, being ignored by the bartenders and staff at this place, which offended me. I approached her and asked if she was looking to place an order, and when she said yes I told her I'd make sure she got attention. Which she promptly did.
She came up to me as we were later leaving, to thank me and say it was the first time in her life anyone had done her that kind of service, shown her that sort of kindness or consideration. That alone was shocking to me, since she must have been at least in her late 30s. But so she claimed. She says she visits our community, so I'll keep an eye out for her in the future, maybe buy her a drink.
Now if that isn't enough to get me a star on St. Peter's list then I guess I'm doing it wrong, gay or not. As well as taking our 91-year-old widowed neighbor to lunch this Sunday on Mother's Day, our treat, because her own son, who lives barely a mile from here, has basically abandoned her. And she'd otherwise spend the day all by herself. Plus I take her to her many medical appointments, and shopping, or shop for her myself, since her son stopped doing that for her.
Sorry to catalogue these things, but the fact is I'm no different from many gays. Gays who do a thousand little kindnesses all day long they never think about, and some rather large ones they may or may not get any recognition for doing.
And if that's not enough to allow us to squeeze through the Pearly Gates, then I think they're something wrong with the system. In which case it may be time to reinvent a new system. Since Heaven and Hell, and their rules, are merely human constructs anyway.
