The Question Club
Anyone else have a really bizarre friendship that, when someone else looked at it from a distance they'd be like, "How the hell could they be friends?"|
I'm progressively political, bi and genderqueer, and fall into the "more spiritual than religious" category. My best male friend on the planet, other than my boyfriend, is someone I've been friends with for almost a decade, and I would die/kill for him if need be. We're like brothers (or brother and sister, if you want to be technical about it). He's a mildly conservative Christian, pro-life, a little bit of a homophobe (doesn't hate glbtq people, just doesn't like being too close to them, other than me--I'm an ambassador!), is going to a secluded Christian college in KY and wants to be a pastor someday. Even I stand back sometimes and go: "Wha?" But we have way more common ground than differences, and we respect our differences in opinion and philosophy. And he'd make an awesome pastor, BTW.
