Peoria Bar Makes A Big Mistake, Big, HUGE

elbo-room-barNot a great business decision to exclude the gays from your place, especially since they’ve apparently been frequenting it for years and probably provided you the money to buy that Chevette you’ve always dreamt of. 

This bar in Peoria called “The Elbo Room” made the mistake of putting this sign up and faster than you can count to 10, the gays mobilized and scared the bejesus out of him. And for that, I applaud them. It reminds me of this, at the 3:30 mark.

Mandisa Returns – Hello? Anyone There?

Remember, Mandisa from American Idol Season 5? I remember that she was someone that the gays immediately were drawn to, big voice, big attitude, full of confidence. And you know, us gay boys have a thing for full-bodied sistas. Well, that feeling was fleeting as it often is when someone starts talking a bit too much God, the Holy Ghost, sinning, all that stuff. It scares us a bit because that has often been a belief system used to discriminate against us. Well, she got in some gay hot water when she hedged on some questioning during an article in The Advocate, where she talked about “the lifestyle”. 

Since that time, she has kind of clarified her position and says, “I think that we are called to love people that are different from us and that don’t agree with the things we agree with.” 

Um, well Mandisa – that doesn’t work for me. I don’t agree with you making love to cheeseburgers, or singing crappy Christian music but see, those things are a choice. I don’t choose a lifestyle of being gay. If you were to describe my lifestyle, here are some words that might come to mind: “boring”, calm, video-game playing, animal-loving, partner-supporting, upcoming straight cruise-taking, etc. A lifestyle might be to go out every night, wake up in an alley from drinking, dealing crack behind a dumpster downtown, turning tricks at the gym, etc. Lifestyle has nothing to do with my sexuality, it has to do with perceived morality, and my “lifestyle” is pretty much in line with any other married person that you might perceive as “normal”. Does that make sense Mandisa?

Oh yeah, Mandisa has a new album coming out – I can’t remember the name or date. Must be my lifestyle again, damn this lifestyle! I guess I should put down my glow sticks and stop listening to Judy Garland so I can remember such details.

Scott Renfroe, You Suck

renfroeBeing gay is comparable to murder? Check this quote from Scott Renfroe, a Colorado State Senator, from Towleroad

“Homosexuality is seen as a violation of this natural created order, and it is an offense to God…I’m not saying this (homosexuality) is the only sin that’s out there. We have murder. We have all sorts of sin. We have adultery. And we don’t make laws making those legal, and we would never think to make murder legal.”

Listen to the audio after the jump. Continue reading

Obama, Maybe He’s Not the Best Choice

Barack Obama has pissed of the gays and we are not going to accept it quietly. In choosing Rick Warren to deliver the invocation at his inauguration, he has chosen an advocate of hate against our huge segment of the population, a segment that played a significant role in his election. If it’s true that we are who we surround ourselves with, then this isn’t a good sign of judgement at all and it concerns me.

Here’s an excerpt of the story below:

Rick Warren, the senior pastor of Saddleback Church in southern California, opposes abortion rights but has taken more liberal stances on the government role in fighting poverty, and backed away from other evangelicals’ staunch support for economic conservatism. But it’s his support for the California constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage that drew the most heated criticism from Democrats Wednesday. 

“Your invitation to Reverend Rick Warren to deliver the invocation at your inauguration is a genuine blow to LGBT Americans,” the president of Human Rights Campaign, Joe Solomonese, wrote Obama Wednesday. “[W]e feel a deep level of disrespect when one of architects and promoters of an anti-gay agenda is given the prominence and the pulpit of your historic nomination.”
