Photo: Inside La Sagrada Familia, Barcelona. Yesterday the topic at our weekly senior gay mens' social was spirituality. I was amazed at both the number of men who identified as atheists, agnostics or believers in non-western religions, as well as the number of gay men (including me) who had been emotionally brutalized by their Christian upbringings because of their sexuality. While I suppose that spirituality can be secular in nature, focusing on nature or one's behavior towards others, for example, for me the word and the concept is simply too loaded with religious baggage to be of any value.
