Racism

It's difficult at times to really find the right individuals to get the right information to when needing assistance in promoting something you feel so adamant about. Who are the right individuals?

More importantly, what is the right information? I am trying to wipe out the ignorance that exists in many sectors of society today. That ignorance is not only damning to homosexuals, but also extremely dangerous; ignorance many times incites rioting throughout the world. We've heard of racism as far back as most of us can remember; do you realize that homophobia is another form of racism? Take a look at the laws and morality associated with racism; why should homophobia be treated any different?

I am using my new book recently released, LIVING THE DIFFERENCE: an enlightening story revealed for people of all ages straight or gay, as a vehicle for educating society on homosexuality. Initial reviews show readers exhibiting an inquisitive yearning for more information; these readers are not just homosexuals, but heterosexuals as well. This more personal and direct approach appears to be reaching many individuals who we've been needing to reach for a very long time.

Join in my efforts! Give me your thoughts! Let's get this accomplished in our lifetime; equality should not only be reserved for heterosexuals. I'm not meaning for this to sound like a plug for my book, but check it out; go to my author web page for more information at   http://outskirtspress.com/livingthedifference   Please don't feel we can't discuss this without your reading my book; let's get the discussion going right away, I'm sure it will still be going on long after you've read my book!

I appreciate being a part of this group, but more importantly I appreciate each and every one of you!

THIS WAS A DISCUSSION TOPIC I POSTED IN A GROUP OF PROFESSIONALS ON LINKEDIN

Book Reviews

I would be honored for my friends and followers to submit their book review of my recently released book, LIVING THE DIFFERENCE: an enlightening story revealed for people of all ages straight or gay.  My publicist is scheduling a book signing tour for early 2011 and he asked that I obtain as many reviews of the book as possible.  He is pulling together reviews of readers from all realms for inclusion as part of the tour and I will be picking certain reviews from those received for inclusion in my sequel to be released in late 2011.

The readers who want to have their review included in my tour will receive an original signed print of their review upon completion of the tour and if in attendance of one of my tours would, of course, get their edition autographed in person.

This is by invitation only.  Follow the links in this blog for book purchase options or go directly to  http://outskirtspress.com/livingthedifference

It's an approach few authors dare to try, but I am trying to drive the point home of the importance of education to society around the world of acceptance, tolerance and understanding of the right of an individual to live the life they were given to live! I feel everyone involved in my earnest endeavor will benefit from high levels of media exposure, have a tremendous amount of fun along the way, and feel a tremendous amount of self worth for their contributions to a better world for all mankind. THANKS!

Love Everyone

If you can't support a cause for whatever reason or you just don't care to get involved for whatever reason, then at least don't be a BIGOT!

Hopefully everyone can at least try to do this:  LOVE EVERYONE, it might just save a life!

Brothers

I am going to post the email I sent to my brother a few days back.  He called me the other day and it was the most enjoyable, loving, and understanding conversation we have ever had!  Just wanted to share the email with everyone.

Hi Steve,

Been awhile. Spencer and I have moved again. We moved after two years from the new home we had constructed to an older historical home in an established neighborhood much closer to Jarred and Jordan. We spend a lot of time together. Our new address is 7532 W. Fordson Drive, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma 73127. Our home number is 405-470-6944!

I finally finished my book I have been working on for so many years and found a publisher to publish it. It was recently released and is getting great reviews. It takes some time for new book releases, especially from unknown authors such as myself, to really get off the ground, but before long I will be going on some book tours and signings and hope to be up your way not long after the first of the year! Mom and dad would be so proud of me for the book; it depicts them just as they always were, the most loving individuals anyone could know and how their love was always unconditional. I dedicated the book to them, along with certain others including yourself. Steve, I don't think I would be alive today had it not been for your unconditional love and support through many of the trials and tribulations I've endured throughout the years. I love you and your family dearly!

Espresso House Publishing released the book and information on it can be found at the following sites:

I wrote my life story from the bottom of my heart, with the total truth of my being who I am and with the love of God able to live the life I was given to live. It is a non-fiction autobiography that has been long over due. With everything going on in this world today with all the hatred and un-Christian like attitudes toward certain individuals and all the teen suicides relating to sexual preferences, I want to spend the rest of my life educating society on an issue so many are ignorant of and thus bitterly opposed to through that ignorance. I am using my newly released book as a vehicle to educate society and through this education will come understanding and acceptance and eventually equality for all. This world has evolved from the beginning and the old archaic beliefs of so many individuals has got to evolve as well. God is good and God is great, but God also knows certain things in this life are out of our own control. If every individual took many of these old archaic beliefs to heart and took them literally, most individuals would be going to Hell for once reason or another and that is not what our God had in mind, nor will it ever be. God would not create individuals who were not meant to live their life the way they were born to live; there is no choice in this, the only choice is to live a lie or live the truth and according to the teachings of Christ, everyone should live a truthful life!

Love your brother,

J.C.!

Repost By Request Of An Earlier Email

Espresso House Publishing has just released a highly anticipated book from Oklahoma City author J. C. Knudson, LIVING THE DIFFERENCE: an enlightening story revealed for people of all ages straight or gay! With all the news coverage recently on gay rights, teen suicides, and the upcoming elections, this is a MUST READ BOOK NOW! Great reviews to date. Additional details can be found at the links above on this blog!

Knudson is using the book as a vehicle to educate society on homosexuality using a more personal approach. He is a firm believer that an educated society is definitely a more accepting and understanding society and along with that will eventually follow equality for all on many issues. Readers are coming away with a more personal understanding of homosexuality, along with an inquisitive yearning for more information. THIS MAY BE THE WAY TO GO IN ACHIEVING UNIVERSAL UNDERSTANDING AND ACCEPTANCE THAT THERE REALLY ARE TWO PRE-DETERMINED TRAITS OF SEXUAL PREFERENCE AMONG ALL HUMAN BEINGS! Conformity to the more widely known and understood preference, heterosexuality, has just been demanded and expected of everyone from the beginning of time. The world has evolved into a more demanding and argumentative society than many of our older and past philosophers and non-philosophers alike ever thought possible or even probable; many archaic beliefs are finally getting the dusting they deserve to reveal a whole new set of circumstances! THIS IS THE WAY IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN; IT'S JUST NEVER BEEN A PRESSING PRIORITY TO GET THAT INFORMATION IN FRONT OF THE GENERAL PUBLIC IN ORDER THAT SOCIETY BE TRULY EDUCATED ON A TOPIC SO MISUNDERSTOOD. THE TIME IS NOW AND THE IGNORANCE WILL STOP!

Don't be left out in the cold, jump on board now and find out what all the buzz is about, as well as getting your name on the list of future book tour sites, public/guest appearances, etc. Replies directed to Spencer Aiello, publicist at Espresso House Publishing, will be given priority in their response.

It sounds like it could be legitimate, so I'm including the link here  http://www.toplevelposition.com/DOTHISNOW

At Home With The Flu

Well, I took my flu shot like the health care professionals tell you to do and a week later I come down with the flu!  Oh well; at least I did something to prevent it.  It probably would be much worse if I hadn't received the shot!

Going to make it short today as I need to crawl back to bed!

Tip of the day:  JUST TAKE IT AS IT COMES!  TOMORROW WILL BE BETTER!

Wild Elephant

Have you read or heard about the anti-gay book getting a lot of publicity, WILD ELEPHANT!  I can't believe some of the contents of the book.  The author claims basically that if you follow the teachings of the book, you can be sure your child will not be gay!

Quite obviously, the author has not performed much homework prior to writing the book!

I am working diligently at getting exposure for my new release, LIVING THE DIFFERENCE: an enlightening story revealed for people of all ages straight or gay!  I am using my book as a vehicle to assist in the accurate and proper education to society of homosexuality.  Currently a large portion of society is ill informed on homosexuality and ignorance on any subject matter is damning to that issue.  I firmly believe a more educated society is a more understanding and accepting society and along with that will eventually come equality for all!

Please help me with this education process!

Tip of the day:  HELP ME!

Love, True Love

A person is lucky if they find true love once in their lifetime.  Does it matter who that true love is with?  Absolutely not!

Certain individuals would have you think it must be a certain way or with a certain gender.  Again, absolutely not!

Why can't the entire world understand there are two types of individuals in this world, heterosexuals and homosexuals?  So one is more accepted and understood than the other, tough beans; we just need to educate the world on the other!

Can I trust each and every one of you to help me do that?  It takes us all; a joint effort.

I have the vehicle to help achieve this goal.  Please jump on board and help me.  The vehicle is my new book and I guarantee once a person reads it, they will understand homosexuality to a much higher degree than they ever thought possible.

Read LIVING THE DIFFERENCE and then get everyone you know to read it too, homosexuals and heterosexuals alike!

Trust me this will work!

Tip of the day:  JOIN IN AND BE A PART OF SOMETHING BIG!

Results

I have been running a poll on this blog site regarding the most influential and famous gay rights advocate in America.  The results are in and Ellen De Generes received 52% of the votes, followed by Frank Kameny with 32%, a distant third was Anderson Cooper with 12%, and Jodie Foster was dead last with the remainder of the votes!

Did you participate?  Do you want to participate in something even bigger?  How about getting involved yourself in gay rights!

I am a gay rights advocate working on educating the public in a more personal manner on homosexuality.  An educated society is generally a more accepting and understanding society and along with that should eventually come equality for all.

I am using my book just released, LIVING THE DIFFERENCE, as a vehicle in getting this accomplished!

Jump on board and be a part of something fun and exciting.  I'm not only working toward equality for homosexuals, but for all minorities as well.

Read my book and learn what it's all about; find out what you can do to help make a difference in the life of individuals around the world!

Tip of the day:  YOU MIGHT JUST ENJOY MAKING A DIFFERENCE!

?

I read many blogs and some of them I have no idea of what they are trying to accomplish!  Every individual has their own idea as to what they want their blog to accomplish!

Me, I'm no different!  I want my blog to give insight in certain areas of life certain individuals may not have been previously exposed to.  I also want my blog to hit certain nerves of people whose nerves may need a little rattling!

I usually don't rebroadcast stories or clippings to take up space unless I really believe it important news to share with my friends who may not have viewed the story elsewhere!

I am a writer, so I try to be creative with my posts; I may not always achieve that, but I give it my best!

Tip of the day:  READ MORE BLOGS; WHO KNOWS WHAT YOU MIGHT FIND OUT THERE!

Friends

What's the criteria used in considering someone a friend?  I'm sure each of you have your own set of guidelines!

Do we really know who our true friends are?  I thought I did until I came out of the closet!

Having trouble with your friends or truly identifying who your friends really are?

Read my new book just released, LIVING THE DIFFERENCE!  Let it be your friend!  It's not only for homosexuals to read; it's required reading for all.  It will open your eyes to human behavior!  It will make you angry!  It will make you sad!  It will make you happy!  It will make you feel a part of something you probably never thought possible!  It will make you laugh!  Most importantly, it will thoroughly entertain you on so many different levels.

Friends are great...but friends can also be not so great!  Never think just because someone is part of your family they are automatically your friend, it definitely doesn't always work that way!

Tip of the day:  COZY UP THESE COOL FALL EVENINGS WITH A BOOK; LET MY BOOK BE YOUR FRIEND!
