On Thursday’s RetroforceGO! we were talking about something … honestly I can’t even remember what the conversation was specifically about. All I know is it had something to do with heaven.
After this was brought up I made a joke about coming out of the closet and not going to heaven.
Oh God, if you only knew the hate mail I received because of it.
I am going to say something about this before next week’s show, but I am so horribly upset by all this that I really felt the need to make a post explaining everything.
I was trying (however unsuccessfully) to make a joke about how there are a million stupid, highly ignorant people out there that actually believe this – that if you are gay you won’t go to “heaven.” It was a stupid joke (stupidest joke I have made), but that’s what it was: a joke. Actually, it wouldn’t even call it a “joke.” I am so far from thinking something hateful like this could be true (and assume most of you are as well) that I said it just because it sounded so ridiculous.
In no way did I mean any harm by it, especially something like this that means so much to me.
I hope most of you knew that.
If not (which I totally understand after listening back), I apologize more than I ever have in my life. I never meant to say something so asinine and idiotic. Bad jokes really can be terrible sometimes.
Please accept my apologies for my awful sense at humor. Ugh. And I am not writing this (super serious) blog because someone asked me to. I truly felt horrible after receiving these e-mails from people that I just felt the need to say something.
I need to go punch myself in the face now.
