Another Blind Eye to a Small Boy's Cry

By Thom Hunter, published on Nov 9, 2011

...little boys. Sexual abuse is slick and tricky and well-disguised. It slips into a child's world with a smile and a laugh, a chuckle and a touch, and doesn't leave until childhood purity has been stolen away and destroyed, and along with it, the ability to trust. I don't know if Mr. Hooten was gay or straight, because it was not really about sex at all. It was sport and selfishness and an unending search to fill a perverted emptiness. It was the conquest of a child, power over innocent prey, the sad satisfaction of a selfish soul at the expense of another, and the crumpling and tossing... (more)

Gay penguins to be separated and forced to breed

By edtusox, published on Nov 9, 2011

... a “braying’’ sound as a mating call. They defend their territory, preen each other, and are constantly standing alone together.

“It’s a complicated issue, but they seem to be in a loving relationship of some sort,’’ says Joe Torzsok, chair of the Toronto zoo board.

The gay partnership has caused talk. “This is all new for us,’’ said another keeper, pointing out that the zoo hasn’t had African penguins on display since 1993.

There has been an outcry since it emerged that keepers have decided to step in and separate Pedro and Buddy. The zoo justifies... (more)

Gay Culture: The Mouse that Keeps on Roaring

By Thom Hunter, published on Nov 5, 2011

...to share with friends who would never ask where it came from. I saw a temptation that could be fulfilled easily and with little chance of discovery due to the ignorance of the one being perpetrated, one who was fast asleep while the world moved on around him. Here's the big leap of the week: gay culture is like the 10-year-old who perceives he has not much, but has easy access to a whole lot and will take full advantage of the ignorance of those who sleep, robbing them blind as they drop their ashes on the floor in silent slumber. Gay culture glides into the room, leaves the wallet of... (more)

On Writing…

By davemartin1965, published on Nov 4, 2011

When I was in high school, I did my best to not stand out. I was struggling with the question of "Am I gay, or not?" and didn't want to have the answer literally beaten out of me. My fear left me standing quietly by as friends were bullied, harassed both verbally and physically, called names and what not. If I stepped forward, I'd become a target.

In my silence, I retreated to the safety of books. The complete works of Edgar Allen Poe. The fanciful world of J. R. R. Tolkein. The ancient mythology of The Illiad and The Odyssey. The futuristic tales of Arthur C. Clarke and Isaac Asimov.... (more)

Who Told You You Were Naked?

By Thom Hunter, published on Oct 31, 2011

...tempting when, whacked by the tidal wave of my revealed sinfulness, my children walked away, my friends departed, my church folded exasperated arms against me, while, at the same time, culture chimed in with all the reasons we should rise beyond the ignorance and embrace the obvious: "being gay is about as good as it gets in this world." It's the domain of the creative and witty and intelligent, the self-actualized and contented ones, the ones who had discovered finally the meaning of loving oneself.

And, in the midst of loving themselves, that are also the sad and the lonely... (more)

The Bogeyman Myth of the Hateful Bigot

By Thom Hunter, published on Oct 27, 2011

...lost lies a heart that God longs for regardless of whether it longs for Him? Is our only choice to thicken the walls and batten down the hatches? Can we only put on the full armor of God to assume the attack mold? Are we to cover out eyes with the hands which should be reaching?

The pro-gay agenda is making ground with the weapon of two simple words: hateful bigot.

"You don't want me to be happy? You hateful bigot."

"You don't think I should marry my same-sex partner? You hateful bigot."

"You believe in a God that thinks I sin just by being . . . who He made... (more)

The Lengthening Shadow of Pro-Gay Theology

By Thom Hunter, published on Oct 24, 2011

...will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. -- I Timothy 4:3-4

SPOILER ALERT:

Pro-gay theology is untrue.

I remember a time, way back in the '70s, when I had an ah-hah moment and it seemed obvious to me that the people around me -- especially my fellow Christians -- had somehow avoided the truth about homosexuality. Out of their in-bred squeamishness and hammered-in desire ... (more)

Movie Minute: Jennifer's Body

By M.J. Hamada, published on Sep 24, 2009

...before that, her stripper-turned-screenwriter story made the news. And then there's her dialogue: slangy, chat-snappy teen-speak. Cody-speak.

Remember Juno's "Honest to blog?", "Phuket, Thailand!" and "food baby"? In Jennifer's Body, characters utter phrases such as "You're totally lesbi-gay," "You're just Jell-O" (meaning: jealous) and "Move-on dot org, Needy." More fodder for Urban Dictionary.

But watching the trailer, you'd think Body would be a horror-thriller aimed at audiences that enjoy Jeepers Creepers, Urban Legend and I Know What You Did Last Summer. In... (more)

Let's Hear It For The Boy

By Glenn T, published on Sep 8, 2009

...lady (including one particularly poignant example recently), I would have bought it lock, stock and barrel myself. Strip clubs, adult book stores and porn websites all cater almost exclusively to the Y-chromosome set, and the few all-male revues that do appear, at least to the exclusion of the gay male crowd, to be directed at women are often reviled as caricatures and are almost always overtly campy in their presentation. We have been told and shown time and time again that while women can always resist a gorgeous man most men are powerless to resist their female counterparts. In fact,... (more)

Early Marriage High Horse, Healthcare Informants, & Not About Philosophy

By FMeekins, published on Aug 10, 2009

...ideal the past where people married in their early 20's.

Perhaps they would also care to address how many unhappy marriages were formed where the partners would have been better off had they remained single but simply got married because the parties no longer wanted to be snickered at as gay even though they are not.

Though it no doubt pains some of the uberpuritanical who crave to control every last detail of those around them, the Bible is remarkably silent as to by what age one MUST be married.

The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors have authorized the expansion of ... (more)
