Re: “Queers in Comedy

You're right, those TWO gay comics are lovely and strong to break through dominant culture. I'm guessing you couldn't name many gay comics after that, which is what began this whole inquiry. BTW come see me open for James Adomian on June 18th at the Doug Fir! Did I respond to your comment or promote myself, NO ONE KNOWS! #seemless #selfpromopro http://www.dougfirlounge.com/event/828927-…

Re: “Even Churches Can Evolve

All I can say is no wonder God warned us about U
For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them. Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears.
Acts 20:29-31

Acts 20:29-31

The Spirit says clearly that some people will abandon the faith in later times; giving heed to deceiving spirits and teachings of devils. 1 Timothy 4:1

“‘If a man has sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable Leviticus 20:13
“‘Do not have sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman; that is detestable.
Leviticus 18:22
Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.

26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.

28 Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. 29 They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31 they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. 32 Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.
Romans 1: 28-32

I give no quarter to one who says they speak for God yet leads people down the road to rebellion against God and what God proclaimed. God is immutable and He did not change his mind because society did and Satan wants people confused about what sin is. God had Moses and Paul go to little description as to the specifics of what a sin was, with the exception of homosexuality and sexual misconduct. This is very well defined as to what constitutes exactly that SIN. An abomination or detestable act to God is a sin so gross to Him that he would destroy whole cities for it. Yet you teach people they don't have to turn from sin to repent by saying this abomination is not a sin. Well I am letting you know if you are that ignorant, willfully or accidentally through gross negligence to study to be a worthy servant of God that you have been informed and will stand without excuse for all the souls you are leading to hell with that message.

Ephesians 5:11
Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them.

2 Timothy 4:3-4

For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths.


Galatians 1:6-9

I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel— not that there is another one, but there are some who trouble you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again: If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you received, let him be accursed.

Re: “Even Churches Can Evolve

Wrong on so many levels. You should NOT be a Reverend since you are leading people away from the truth. You will be held accountable.

Re: “Even Churches Can Evolve

What those on the right just refuse to acknowledge is
1 legal marriage, a contract with government, does not equate to holy matrimony, a contract with God
2 A loving home will always be superior to no home, or the prison of verbal/physical abuse, alcoholism, etc.
When leaders, both political and religious, stop seeing equality as a threat to them, stop denigrating a family for looking different, perhaps the younger flock will follow again.

Re: “It's Hard Out Here for a "B"

Excellent piece Logan! Pinkie, at the 2013 Bisexual Community Issues Roundtable at the White House, bisexual organizers presented testimony of bisexual people denied services and routed to mainstream orgs who then also denied them things like domestic violence shelters. But hey, read the reality of how we are explictly not being served.
here:
http://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/2748342

Usually the next point in this argument is to say "well bi people in same sex couples are being fought for along with everyone else who is gay and lesbian". Sadly, that's not the case either when the life expectancy is so much lower, rape rates so much higher...and don't forget bi people double their chances of getting beat on a Saturday night by partners of various genders.

That data? All bi data? Has supported the creation of an LGbT ecosystem that pointedly ignores its most populous members while a mainstream society has risen at the same time to utilize bisexuality to sell its products.

Which of course gives everyone the idea that we're all doing great in bi land when every piece of data says very different, and has for nearly 30 years.

Bisexuality is an ingrained into the LGBT community as the rainbow itself, and bi, pan, fluid members have contributed more than enough to be recognized as deserving of support that specifically targets bi, pan, fluid, and queer community members.

P.S
Pinkie, how about you turn your challenge around and see how many LGBTQ organizations have a single project, program, or resource targeting bisexual community members, ya know since its "LGBTQ" and such?

Re: “It's Hard Out Here for a "B"

Why are you citing statistics relative to heterosexuals? You're calling for more inclusivity within the LGBQTA community, correct? Also, saying that "zero dollars" benefited bi-specific programs is slightly ridiculous, as if there is a a plethora of such. Can you name an LGBTQA organization that has denied benefits to a bisexual?
I fully acknowledge that bisexuals are frequently erased in many aspects of gay politics, media, and representations. More than anything, I think they are absolutely and inherently included in the current equality battle.

You will be able to tell that all of our LGBTQ friends are fully accepted into society when articles like this are no longer needed.

This is great writing, and a good reflection on the Canadian asylum process. I hope this gentleman is doing well in Canada now. Hopefully he'll get to go back to Iran one day without facing so much hate and danger.

Re: “We Won (Kinda)! Now What?

There is no good reason to deny that we must keep evolving until an adult, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, monogamy or polyamory, race, or religion is free to marry any and all consenting adults. The limited same-gender freedom to marry is a great and historic step, but is NOT full marriage equality, because equality "just for some" is not equality. Let's stand up for EVERY ADULT'S right to marry the person(s) they love. Get on the right side of history!
