Based upon a true story, The Achilles Effect chronicles God experiencing life through me as a gay man. Even before the deadly car wreck I barely survived, people encouraged me to write a book about coming out as a gay airplane mechanic. In 1992, gay employees did not have equal protection under the law; I could have been fired for admitting my sexual orientation. Although I grew up Catholic, neither my parents nor my siblings put the beliefs of the church above the love for their family.
Several denominations have closed their doors to practicing homosexuals, referring to it as a choice. Some priests have even denied communion to those who support the gay movement. Catholics for equality organized the Rainbow Sash Movement. Fundamentalist Christians brought to the workplace their misconception of the gay population as sick, immoral people in need of saving. This bullying left me with only three choices: 1. Quit Northwest Airlines in order to go work for a gay friendly company. 2. Go back to drinking. 3.

God is experiencing love through us.
God could only imagine
what true love is?
Where are you at with letting
God experience life through you?
Does it matter?
Your body is a temple for God,
who is in you,
that you are not your own.
You are more than your religion,
You are Spirit.
You are God!
