One of the big parts of the crucifixion story is how one of the apostles denied that he was a friend of jesus' and then a crow crowed three times or he denied it three times and then a crow died or something along those lines, I forget. Anyway, when I was struggling with how I was going to live my life - hidden and more burdensome than anyone deserves or unhidden and on as even a ground with others that I could find - I was pretty spiritual, good catholic irish-american saint patrick's day lovin hard drikin' hard working mutt. What drove me to come out was the idea that if the lesson to learn from the apostle's story was that we shouldn't deny what we are, then I, as a good christian, was obliged by jesus himself to come out, and so I did. Thank you, Jesus.
