A reiteration of the purpose of my blog and book

I would like to thank everyone who have read this blog and have supported me. I would also like to thank those who bought my book.

Lastly, I want to thank those who choose not to put a "hit" out on me for sending them so many posts on the Barack Obama/Donnie McClurkin situation.

I feel that I am blessed to be able to comment on this controversy and to bring attention to voices and issues that have not been heard.

But I would like to reiterate something.

This controversy is only a small part of a huge problem.

For a few days, I have huffed and puffed at Senator Obama and Donnie McClurkin.

But now, I want to reel myself back in by reposting the following main points of my book. The reason for my reposting is to remind myself as to the focus of my blog and book:

I love it!

I hope all your hard work and research pays off for you Alvin. May it become a bestseller, and enemy book #1 to the loony so-called "christians" who've hijacked Christianity.

Although I'm not a fan of the mags, have you thought about advertising in The Advocate, Out, etc? Perhaps an interview with Signorile, Besen or Dan Savage?
