Patrick, you "explored" the gay community for 28 years? That sounds like a LOT of exploring to me!!! And you didn't have fun????? (Sniff! Sniff!) poor child! They were mean to you! Couldn't you have gone straight into the arms of some poor female and produced some offspring like everybody who wasn't hitting the clubs or preferring to lead a quiet domestic life with a partner? You mean to tell me you were dragged into the "gay world" kicking and screaming???? By the way, you meant to say they treated you like "pariah" or social outcast. They could not have treated you like a parish, which is an area having its own church and clergyman.
