A Few Words About Roz

A better understanding of our fellowman could possibly make it easier for people of all races, religions, political affiliations, and sexual orientations to co-exist with each other in love and peace. 

Roz is not claiming to be an expert in social and world matters.  However, she is a concerned American who wants to see unity among the citizens of the United States of America. 

While remaining open-minded, Roz does have certain convictions about some difficult subjects.


Being of the Black race, Roz can give genuine insight into her experience as a Black woman living in America, without malice or anger from past hurts.  Having worked for a global company for many years, Roz has concluded that people everywhere want the same thing -- life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  She enjoys interacting with people of other races.  While we are different in many ways, we are also alike in many ways.  People of all races are welcome and will be treated with respect.



Being of the Christian faith, Roz will be discussing any religious matters from a Christianity viewpoint.  Although willing to listen to other religious points of view, do not expect Roz to be moved from Christian values.  People of all faiths are welcome and will be treated with respect.



As a Democrat, Roz  recognizes that some things about the party need improving.  She finds some things to be too liberal in the effort to please everyone's desires.  She also believes that the welfare system is a crippling mechanism (except for elderly and disabled) .  People of all political parties are welcome and will be treated with respect.


Gay Rights

I have to admit that I am confused by what gender is in today's world.  I grew up during a time when there were just girls and boys and the occasional "funny" (gay) person.  Today, there are too many variations of gay for me to understand, even if I really wanted to.  Being a Christian who believes what the bible teaches, I cannot say that being gay is good and pleasing in God's eyes, no more than I can say that adultery and murder is good and pleasing.  However, I love my gay sisters and brothers as I do those who are not gay.  I would never hate or be mean to someone because they are gay.  But I would not hesitate to tell them, with love, what thus sayeth the bible. 

I would advise people to not condemn or judge gay people.  I do not know why every person who is gay is that way.  But I do know what a gay friend told me happened to him.  My friend told me that he had been abused when he was a child, and that he grew up thinking what was happening to him was normal.  He said that when he found out it was not normal, he tried to change, tried to date girls and even had sex with a girl.  But he said that he just could not get into being with a girl, and he reverted back to what he knew.  We never know what a person has gone through or what they are currently dealing with.  All we can do is love all of our sisters and brothers and have compassion when we have the opportunity to do so.  People of all sexual orientations are welcome and will be treated with respect.


Roz lives in Texas with her husband and their cats Jingles, Larry, Clyde, Blackie, Benny, and Sadie.

"We Are All One"

"If we are in unity with the Spirit, we are in unity with each other, and so we are all one."




In The Mood of Christmas & Other Celebrations, Howard Thurman puts it this way:   

"The great incentive remains ever alert; I cannot be at peace without God, and I cannot be truly aware of God if I am not at peace with my fellows.  For the sake of my unity with God, I keep working on my relations with my fellows.  This is ever the insistence of all ethical religions."
