Homophobia!

I’d heard over the past few days about the prom being canceled somewhere in Mississippi because some girl wanted to take another girl to the annual rite of passage held in high schools every year.  I really didn’t think much about it.  That was until today.  I ran out of cigarettes and on my way to the store when radio host Michael Baisden played a clip of a phone call he received earlier in the day.  The gist of the conversation was something like this.   Caller:  The prom should be canceled because homosexuals are sick and diseased and need to be treated.  We, as Christians need to point out that this behavior is wrong.  Michael Baisden:  So as a Christian you have the right to judge people.  Caller:  Of course we do.  At that point I turned the radio off because I couldn’t tell that judgmental Christian to shut the fuck up.

I am on record for supporting gay rights.  As I’ve often said, what two consenting adults do is their business.  I don’t know what the age of consent is in Mississippi but that is hardly the point.  What great harm to society can happen if two girls decide to go to a dance together?  In the never ending argument of being gay is a choice or being gay is hardwired in gay men and woman I come down on the side of the latter.  No straight man wakes up in the morning thinking that he wants to go out and suck some dick.  The only exception may be if you’re a member of Congress.  And what is really troubling  for me that it is not only applicable to Republicans.

The American Civil Liberties Union has filed a lawsuit on behalf of Constance McMillen to have the prom reinstated.  I hope that they are successful in their efforts.  In trying to punish one student, the school ends up punishing the entire student body, both gay and straight.  To deny an entire student body of their senior prom is akin to interring all Muslims in this country simply because we are at war in Iraq and Afghanistan.  And this can all be attributed to one biblical passage in the BuyBull saying that if a man lays with another man then he should be killed.  That evil book also says that if a woman is not a virgin at the time of her marriage she should be stoned to death.  I haven’t read anything about non-virgins being stoned to death in my 46 years of life.

The bottom line is this… We face far more greater problems in this country than what people do in their bedrooms.  And those who are obsessed with what other people do in their bedrooms need serious counseling.  You won’t see me marching down the street in gay rights parades but you also won’t see me denigrating people for who they are.  I think the stats prove that 10% of the population is gay.  Last time I checked, God doesn’t have a wife.  Does He spend all of his time masturbating?  Or does he get down with Allah or Yahweh?

It’s only a fucking prom people!  Get over it!

What Does Palin and Her Church Have Against Gays & Lesbians?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Palin’s Church Promotes Conversion Of Gays

Advertises Conference That Claims Prayer Has Power To Change Homosexuals Into Heterosexuals

ANCHORAGE, Alaska, Sept. 7, 2008

AP) Gov. Sarah Palin’s church is promoting a conference that promises to convert gays into heterosexuals through the power of prayer.

“You’ll be encouraged by the power of God’s love and His desire to transform the lives of those impacted by homosexuality,” according to the insert in the bulletin of the Wasilla Bible Church, where Palin has prayed for about six years.

Palin’s conservative Christian views have energized that part of the GOP electorate, which was lukewarm to John McCain’s candidacy before he named her as his vice presidential choice.

She is staunchly anti-abortion (opposing exceptions for rape and incest), and opposes gay marriage and spousal rights for gay couples.

Focus on the Family, a national Christian fundamentalist organization, is conducting the Love Won Out Conference in Anchorage, about 30 miles from Wasilla.

Palin, campaigning with McCain in the Midwest on Friday, has not publicly expressed a view on the so-called “pray away the gay” movement. Larry Kroon, senior pastor at Palin’s church, was not available to discuss the matter Friday, said a church worker who declined to give her name.

Gay activists in Alaska said Palin has not worked actively against their interests, but early in her administration she supported a bill to overrule a court decision to block state benefits for gay partners of public employees.

At the time, less than one-half of 1 percent of state employees had applied for the benefits, which were ordered by a 2005 ruling by the Alaska Supreme Court.

Palin reversed her position and vetoed the bill after the state attorney general said it was unconstitutional.

But her reluctant support didn’t win fans among Alaska’s gay population, said Scott Turner, a gay activist in Anchorage.

“Less than 1 percent of state employees would even apply for benefits, so why make a big deal out of such a small number?” he said.

“I think gay Republicans are going to run away” if Palin supports efforts like the prayers to convert gays, said Wayne Besen, founder of the New York-based Truth Wins Out, a gay rights advocacy group. Besen called on Palin to publicly express her views now that she’s a vice presidential nominee.

“People are looking at Sarah Palin as someone who might feasibly be in the White House,” he said.

Answer my Question Pastor Hagee!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I saw a clip where Pastor Hagee blames everything on gays and lesbians!  I have a question for him after the clip.

 

So Pastor Hagee, with a hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico and a tropical storm in the Atlantic Ocean, does that mean that there has been an exponential spike in Homosexual activity?  And are we as a nation all doomed because of it?  I would have addressed this to Jerry Falwell but of course he is dead.  Say hello to Pastor Ted for me!
