Pressed on Thursday in Marshalltown on why he opposed hospital visitation rights for gay couples, Perry explained, in a blunt ending to a roundabout answer: "Listen, I love the sinner, I hate the sin." I asked his spokeswoman, Catherine Frazier on Friday whether, given his foggy response the day before, the Governor still opposed Lawrence. Answer: Absolutely. "The remarks in his book are still the case," Frazier said.

I’d like this to be a still from an old movie about two guys who fell in love during WWII. I would like it to be romantic, tragic, and poignant like Casablanca. It would be great if such a film were made today, but I would like for it to have been made back in the 40’s. I would like to have seen it when I was a kid. I would like for this film to have helped me imagine falling in love with a man, and being so in love with him that I would risk everything, do anything to be with him. I would like for this film to have shaped my character and my expectations. I would like for this film to have affirmed a nascent dream that was just beginning to emerge in me when I was eleven or twelve.

Rob Paul brags that he has gained the endorsement of a Christianist pastor who advocates capital punishment for gays.

Ron Paul Endorsed by Eminent Pastor Rev. Phil Kayser, Ph.D.


From Pil Kayser's book Is The Death Penalty Just: Even after a society implemented Biblical law and made homosexuality a crime, there are many checks and balances that would be in place. (See Appendix A page  40 for specifics.) The civil government could not round them up. Only those who were prosecuted by citizens could be punished, and the punishment could take a number of forms, including death. This would have a tendency of driving homosexuals back into their closets.

I think I have demonstrated how even capital punishment can be restorative.  Other aspects of penology such as restitution, indentured servitude, etc. are certainly restorative.

A NC group opposed to marriage equality uses a photo to suggest marriage equality proponents are assassins out to kill heterosexual couples.

NC's leading 'family' group puts figurative sniper rifle in our hands. Literally.



I'm pretty sure Chuck Colson does want to impose his beliefs on us.






Interesting how Colson suggests that those who object to the way Bachmann, Santorum, Gingrich, and Perry inject their religious beliefs into the presidential race are somehow anti-Christian, as if Obama doesn't identify as a Christian or as if many if not most liberals and Democrats don’t identify as Christian. It’s also interesting how he suggests that he and Christians like himself, namely Christianists, are both the saviors of Western Civilization and the ones who invented everything good about it. Oh, no, it wasn't the Greeks who gave us democracy. It was the Christianists who did that. Really? Their historical revisionism and their willingness to present themselves as the moral guardians of our country when we know that they're a bunch of lying, self-serving, self-deluded crazies is extremely creepy. Colson, I simply don't believe you when you say you don't want to impose your beliefs on me when you've made it perfectly clear you miss the days when people like me lived in fear of being put in prison or committed to mental hospitals.

Those crazy heterosexuals.






























You know if a gay man did this, the homophobes would be all over it. They'd say this is the reason they find gay people revolting. But when they see a straight guy do it, they just dismiss him as an ignorant redneck.

The Feast of Stephen




Today is Boxing Day, sometimes known as The Feast of Stephen in some countries. So I thought I would share this short film by James Franco inspired by the poem The Feast of Stephen by Anthony Hetch. It’s about a young man who isn’t quite like the other boys. He isn’t athletic. He lacks the killer instinct. He is a quiet and gentle boy. But he is drawn to and fascinated by his peers as they engage in a game of basketball. He is keenly aware of the homoeroticism on display in this contact sport and the esprit de corps shared by the players. They catch him watching them. They know he knows their secret. They know he is the type of boy who would act on the impulses they have sublimated using their game. They can’t stand seeing themselves through his eyes, so they decide to punish him.

Warning: this film contains full frontal nudity, extreme violence and rape.
