    Howard related because Howard talked about this story on air last week (which my driver was excited to find out about):

    COLUMBUS, Ohio, June 2 (UPI) -- Christian singer Trey Pearson came out this week after a longtime struggle with his sexuality.

    The Everyday Sunday frontman, who shares two children with wife Lauren, revealed he's gay in an open letter to fans after "pushing away and blocking out" his "real feelings" for "more than 20 years."

    Really cool guy. I could have spent an hour listening to him talk about what brought him to this point in his life. He said his ex-wife is his biggest supporter.

    Pushing away and blocking his real feelings. Translation - I was dying to suck a dick.

    Aww, you guys...he was totally cool. He's living how he wants now and it makes him happy. Dont be so judgmental for once - Reserve that all for Beth and Howard.

    the wife has a friend from high school
    they hadn't seen each other in years
    he's gay

    we ran into him
    he had on a shirt that said pitcher with a guy throwing a pitch

    the kid starts telling him that the kid is a pitcher also
    I wanted to cry and laugh at the same time

    You should've invited him here and enticed him with our Christian Rock threads and super fans.

    I'm not judgemental, that's for sure... But I do think it's quite odd that he'd be an Uber driver. At least right now. The guy's been on national news over the past week or two and as I understand it he's fronted a fairly successful Christian Rock group. I mean, if nothing else he's had record deals.

    That's weirder to me than the fact he's gay. That's not a big deal at all.

    And how did you know? Did you know what the guy looked like? Or recognize his name or something?

    Sure she is. She had to have known he was living a lie, which meant she was too.

    I'm just glad both of them had the guts to do what made them happy rather than supress it out of fear of the Church and Hell. I've seen WAYYYYY too many people make life choices based on fear of the boogie man than what makes them happy.
