  1. JOhn 1:1-14 is a beautiful passage indeed! It expresses the reason for Jesus’ birth and life on Earth. Christmas is a time for me personally to celebrate the reconciliation of my faith with my sexuality nearly 3 years ago and the peace that it has brought me as I have reconnected with God and my faith, become a better person, a stronger Christian and a happier and more fulfilled gay man.

  6. Hi I’ve been following you guys for a little bit now and was just looking for the right spot to give my first response here and Bruce set it up. Thank God for sending Jesus here to this earth, who came, taught and left words that brought light that still opens the eyes of so many people today 2000 years. It’s because of the light that he left in his word that I that I too am now at peace with him, at peace with his word, and with myself as a gay man when so many in our community still believe God and the bible stands against them. I did at one time and It was a huge issue for the larger part of my life because of the things taught “in the church”, but because of the things He himself came and taught “in His word” that one issue for me is finally gone and resolved forever and I now live everyday in peace. Happy birthday Jesus and thank you for coming and most of all thank you for leaving your word. Merry Christmas to all who celebrate the birth of Christ and to those who don’t …Happy Holidays.May 2011 be a prosperous year for our country and a year that conservatives have opportunity to blow their trumpets louder than ever before regarding the standards reflected in Gods word.

  8. Merry Christmas, as a Jew in America, it’s a pleasure to be included as a guest. Last night a bunch of Jewish friends having dinner, going out to see the local magic Christmas Carol truck and dancing elves. Then on to hear a friend sing in a beautiful choir at a packed midnight Mass. Today will be a guest at a Christmas dinner. Life is great.

  15. Your 2012 scriptures for Jesus’ birth were AWESOME, Bruce. Over 2 months of political Tweets, Blogs, & Facebook Friends, and I didn’t know you were a Christian. THANK YOU for sharing, and I am looking forward to supporting Gay Patriot as the years go by. In Christian Love, Haven

  17. A belated Merry Christmas to all. A little late to the discussion, but was prompted by John 1:1 which is one of my favorite verses, too.

    Bruce, you might be interested to know that in the original Greek text of John the word which appears is “Logos” (translated into “Verbum,” in the Latin vulgate, “Word” in English). The Greek “Logos” refers not simply to “word” but to the rational controlling principle of the universe. This is a much more profound meaning of the text than simply “word,” and also imbues the term “Verbum” (“Word” used as a cognate) with a deeper meaning than just a means of communication (as in, “keeping one’s word” with “word” being a rational guiding principle and point of honor).

    Also, you might look up Matthew 9:13, too. A different topic, but I think just as profoundly meaningful.
