Not a normal day in the park

A note from your host:

The following post was never really intended here due to it being highly autobiographical in nature but after some consideration and the realization that I would be doing Paul a disservice I have created this entry (I have also included his photo with his permission).

It was hot Sunday in August and Toronto was having a Fetish fair in the gay village. I had to admit that I really did not feel like being here even if I was dressed in my USMC dress blue uniform. It was not due to a lack of nice looking eye candy in leathers, uniforms or sports kit but I felt alone. It seemed that everybody else knew someone here or were looking to start conservations with someone new. I wandered around checking out the various booths to see what they were offering but I knew that most of what caught my eye was way out of my price range or was not really my style.

As the day progress I grew bored and more than a little depressed since I felt that I did not quite meet what others were looking for. It did not take a genius to see that I was not buff and muscled or had chest hair or started to show that I was a bit over weight. I was tall and very skinny and that certainly not the stereotypical gay male. I actually had someone ask me if my weight was due to being HIV+.

It took a bit of self control but I did give him a reply to the negative and pointedly reminded him that there were other reasons for a human to be thin including one’s gene code. At this point I decided that I just about finished playing ‘dress up’ for the day and should just cut my losses, have a quiet beer or two on one of the many outdoor patios the bars had set up for the day and then go home to surf the internet.

I think that was mid way through my second drink that I was approached by someone dressed as a baseball player. “So soldier, are you drinking alone?” I nodded and took another sip of my beer. In a way I was torn between wanting company and wanting to drink alone.  “Want some company or do I have to enlist first?” I had to laugh at that as I motioned him to join me and I knew that I really needed the company.

As he slid onto a vacant chair next to me he smiled and said “Hi, I am Paul” that was when I noticed that he was wearing the jersey for the bar I was drinking at. So I really did have a real player of the sport and not someone dressed as one. That scored him more than a few points in my book.

As I tried to become more conservational with him I did see that he filled his uniform very nicely in all the right locations even if was not as tall as me not was he in the over muscled category and the occasional view of thick chest hair just added to my interest. O.K. the sex drive may not have been dead but, I certainly wanting to know him better for other reasons than a romp in the hay. That might happen in the future but I was more interested in a real human conservation.

Over the next several hours and numerous beers we talked exploring various topics and he began to introduce me to his friends as they passed the street patio and we discover that we had many mutual friends, most of whom I had lost contact with.

By the end of the night we had exchanged phone numbers and had promised to keep in touch before he gave me a long and touching hug and an even longer open mouth kiss. At the end of the kiss I gave myself permission to give his firm looking ass muscles a tight squeezing grope and he gave my crotch the same loving attention when we separated. At this point I knew I would be calling him and soon even if it was nothing more than a coffee together. 

That was the beginning of a beautiful friendship and as to if we had that roll in the hay I do not kiss, grope and tell (not in this case).

There is a reson why Church and State are seperate

I recently ran across the following article:

In Canada there is a definite division between the Church (Christianity) and the State and it has been there since before founding of our country. In fact the only real Theocracy on the planet is Vatican City and frankly it should stay that way. Religion and politics do not mix and both should be distinct and separate for a great many reasons. Using any belief system and this planet has many is not the best way to rule a civil society.

Calling for someones death based on a narrow view of the world is just morally wrong. This stance has nothing to do with the religion I follow, for those who are dying to know is non-Christian, but on the fact that I believe that humanity is better than this and the Eye for an eyes approach is showing me that this member of the human species has at lease one foot still in the cave.
It turns out that being moral goes a lot deeper than the human construct caller religion and may in fact be part of the brain that separates humans from other species. We are moral because we are wired that way and all this about various religious moral systems just screw things up

So Rapture did not happen. Big deal. Let it go, move forward and work on making yourself a better human than wasting your time calling for support on a really stupid action because the completing the action is not going to make the planet a better place.

A funny thing happended on the way to the forum

In recent months there have been a lack of posts to this blog for a number of reasons. First I have been fighting to overcome an extra large dose of writers block. Add to that a general lack/disinterest in sexual encounters. I know part of that is due to the aging process, the other is that I have just not gotten out as often as in the past. In some ways I feel that the sex drive is like a car on cement blocks. not exactly how one would want to envision things. Boy do I need someone to examine my stick-shift (pun intended).

So what to do with the blog then? Well I could do the following:
  1. Delete it. No not a real option I do need an outlet for my creative side.
  2. keep the blog as is and wait till the writers block clears (when ever that will be is unknown)
  3. Turn it into a photo blog. Interesting since I do have a vast number of images that I have downloaded in the past decade. This would make the blog like a great many others on the net
  4. I could convert the blog to be a commentary platform on issues that catch my eye or I want to comment on.
  5. I could also expand the scope of the blog to include the last three items.
O.k. its number 5 as a combo.

Did someone say combo #5

Now with that bit of fun out of the way on to the item that recently caught my attention:

So here are my two drachmas on the subject:

Did we, as they assert, do it? Hardly, the Roman empire was a collection of different cultures that were more or less forced by the Roman legions to make nice and live together. The map that is shown in the article was the full extent of the Roman Empire at its height 117AD by most accounts and it can give you a good idea of how many different cultures (Egypt, Greece in the east to the Gauls, Celts and the various tribes living in Britain to the west). Add to this mess of languages and Goddess based religions all of the political in-fighting among the ruling families that was Roman politics By the third century, all you really needed was the backing of the Roman legions and you could and did have military generals becoming the Roman emperor.

It was not until the last period (330-476AD) of the empire that the Church became a political power in the empire and became the "official" religion. A old adage goes "power corrupts" and the early Christian took full advantage. When the city of Rome finally fell in 476AD anything that was considered as "Roman" suddenly became either illegal or immoral like the acceptance of the difference sexual orientations, the rights that women had under Roman law, owning a cat and above all acceptance of other religious beliefs like sacred prostitutes (male and female). Now there is a way to do service your deity.

Now the owning of a cat might seem the odd item out in that list but consider this the cat was seen as a physical representation of the Egyptian Goddess Bast (Can't have that, that is Idol worship) They also saw the cat as evil/the devil because of the glow being shone from their eyes at night. Guess that we learn how stupid this was since the eradication of European cats both domestic and wild probably made the numerous outbreaks of the Black Death even worse than they should have been. why do I say that? the logic is rather simple. A cats natural prey is rodents among other things, Rodents like the different species of rat carry fleas that are the carriers of the black death and several other deadly diseases. You get rid of the preditor and the rodent population explodes leading to more human/rodent and human/ flea encounters. flea bites human for a snack and human gets what ever disease the flea is carrying.

One other thing I would like you to think about regarding the fall of the Roman Empire, and is not mentioned in the article, is that It was the Western half of the Roman Empire that fell in 476AD not the entire empire. In 330 AD the Roman Empire was divided into a number different administrative regions. By 395AD the Roman empire is divided into two seperate states. The Eastern Empire is governed from Constantinople (now Istanbul) and survived as the Byzantine Empire until 1300AD when its converted into the Ottoman empire.

All you have to do is look at the last fifteen centuries since the fall of the Roman Empire to see what damage the Church caused. For example the purging of the Library of the city of Alexandria in the 5th century, the numerous invasions during the Crusades, the Roman and Spanish inquisitions and finally all of the Witch trials (also called the burning times) to see my point. One thing that I am not is Anti-Christan but I am definitely Anti-fanatic. Any group (political, religious, sports teams Etc...)can create fanatical followers hoping to gaining a power base. The only group to my knowledge that does not have fanatics might be the Buddhists. (I'll have to check on that)

In the end, I really hate it when people do not do their research and decide that any group of humans are a likely and usable target to blame historical events on to support their ultra narrow world view.

hmmm Istanbul/Constantinople .
