Other Sheep is an organizational blog about “faith and LGBT concerns worldwide.” Run by long-time partners Rev. Steven Parelli and Mr. Jose Ortiz, Other Sheep recently returned from a nine-day cruise through the Caribbean. Rev. Parelli reflects on what has changed (and what has not) since he was a closeted Baptist teenager on Martinique in 1970. To read the Other Sheep travelogue, click here.

Palm Sunday is a movable feast, marked by processions that simulate Christ’s entry to Jerusalem by donkey. His path was said to have been strewn with palm fronds. Fronds used in contemporary rituals are burned and the ashes used to mark the foreheads of the faithful on Ash Wednesday. Look forward to a slide show of hot Catholic guys with ashy foreheads this coming week, as well as a series of sexy representations of Christ, called Sexy Jesii. Happy Easter week to our Catholic and Christian friends. God loves all His children and He has a wicked sense of humor!
