I don't know that this is going to be for anyone else but In my search for answers I have discovered discrepancies and shortcomings that no single religion can satisfy. I do not pretend to have any proof or special knowledge, in fact I really only have more questions.
Through the years I have seen many things and I have tried to learn from everything I see. As I get wiser there is one thing that continues to haunt me, I realize that my ignorance will always be greater than the knowledge I possess.
Perhaps if more people stopped claiming to have all the answers and began to ask more questions we would all be able to live as neighbors peacefully.
Rev. Kenneth N Bauer II
It is our premise that:
We all have the Freedom to be who we want to be.
We must come to Accept others for who they are.
Then we can begin to Love one another.
There are people in this world that believe that their religion gives them the right to legislate against lifestyles that they morally object to. A person's life style can be a religion. In this country this gives a person rights, like the right to practice their religion as they see fit and the government cannot legislate against the right to do so.
It is important that people with alternative life attitudes come together to stop the discrimination that others choose to inflict upon us. One does not need to live a particular lifestyle to recognize the fact that another has the right to live it. One does not need to approve of another person's choices but we assuredly must respect their right to enjoy their life as they want just as we ask others to allow us to enjoy ours.
We all need to take an honest look at our lives and try to recognize our hypocrisy and make a good faith effort to reduce it.
Everybody has their own spirituality and this church is not about changing that. We want to add to what people already believe or help them to find their beliefs. Most people seem to force their lifestyles to fit their beliefs here we simply want everyone to examine their lives and get their beliefs to fit their lifestyles.
Others might make claims of having an open heart, but, how can one have an open heart if they have a closed mind? If we all open our minds our hearts will follow.

These guys show up to Fantasy Fest every year. I have no problem with that, however, just why is it that everyone in Key West deserves to go to hell?
If someone wants to practice a particular religion, fine. I will never understand how it makes them feel better to tell the rest of us that we are unworthy.
There are so many people in this world that are simply left out, Lifestyles, attitudes and appearance are often good enough reasons to disqualify people from main stream religions. Here everyone is welcome.

All movements begin with a first step. Our first steps are easy, the next few get tougher.
We now need to define a purpose, establish goals,develop solutions, find candidates and get them elected.
The only way to defeat BIG BUSINESS is to vote the politicians they bought out of office. Everyone need to get registered to vote, and then go vote. One vote might not count but all of our votes together will be a force to be reckoned with.
