Ray Boltz: Don’t Tell Me Who To Love

Jim Burroway

December 8th, 2008

It’s been just a few months since Contemporary Christian Music singer Ray Boltz came out of the closet and acknowledged the reality of his life. Until then, he was a literal rock star among evangelicals. But after years of serious depression and medication, he finally decided that it was time for the lie to come to an end. Needless to say, his career in CCM has been markedly curtailed.

Today, Boltz is back with a new single and video, courtesy of Soulforce.

Nice. Late to the game, but nice.

It’s a lovely song. And it is instructive to look at interracial marriage, including the opinions of those who are still against it (you can find anything on the web, including an association of African-Americans who opposed the civil-rights movement).
One near-nazi site I saw drew an analogy with giraffes mating with elephants. This only highlighted their confused thinking: whilst it would surprise most biologists, how many would find it morally repugnant, much less try to stop it?
Well maybe he would. That, I suppose, is the problem with this line of thinking: they cannot distinguish between allowing and approving. If it is not to be banned, it is to be made compulsory. They need to be reminded: La liberté consiste à faire ce qui ne nuit pas à autrui.

Too bad this wasn’t the no on 8 campaign.

These are the faces of people I love. Several are my friends. Like Diane and Robin, Mel and Gary and Jason and DeMarco.

This is MY family. And you mess with my family, you mess with me.
