I Can't Date Jesus: Love, Sex, Family, Race, and Other Reasons I've Put My Faith in Beyoncé by Michael Arceneaux.

I have very little in common with this author. I'm not a gay black man who grew up in lower middle class Houston. I wasn't educated at Howard nor have I lived in 3 of the 4 most populous cities in the US.

And yet, Michael really spoke to me. Without preaching but with candor, laughter, a lot of cursewords, and tears, he taught me about self acceptance and letting others be who they are, even if they're trash.

This is the 1st author I've read in a long time who I really want to meet. And I'm listening to Beyoncé right now just because of him.

“As a farmer, I’ve watched Lori Saine work on difficult water issues important to Weld County farmers. She has always fought to represent agriculture, Weld’s oldest industry, in the face of a rapidly urbanizing state.

Lori Saine will do us proud as a new Weld County commissioner.”
