A Sign From Gawd

From WhySocietyIsDumb.....

"People are actually screaming in horror over a statue. Not laughing hysterically. SCREAMING!

St. George Statue Falls and is Beheaded in Church Amid Screams when some old guys can't hold it up much longer."

And for those of you who can't get enough of the destruction, here's my own short remix: the "one smash isn't good enough" version!

Don't Pray For Me, Randy

A couple weeks ago, NG blogged that Exodus International VP Randy Thomas mentioned a heckler video of mine, which has actually been on YouTube for several months.

There's SO many things wrong with Randy's post, that I'd have to waste several hours correcting his novel collection of lies and bullshit in just that one single post. It's not worth that amount of time, and neither is he.

But I would like to address a couple things (Randy's text in red):


"Someone sent me a video that was a very creative waste of time. It had a bunch of talking I didn’t quite understand and then was sort of a slideshow of photos"

You SHOULD know whose voice that is.

"The person who made the video was the same person who made an earlier video which compared me to the Pillsbury Dough Boy Monster out of the move Ghost Busters. They implied that I needed to be destroyed like that monster was."


You're wrong. I didn't imply that you "needed" to be destroyed. I implied you WILL be destroyed. And that's not a threat - it's a promise.

And his name is Stay-Puft.

"It reminded me of what I have always believed to be true about stigmatization. It doesn’t work and always backfires on the ones perpetrating the stigma. Whether it backfires today or in a generation … stigmas always backfire on the ones who perpetrate them. I have watched it happen time and again … on both sides. I don’t believe in karma but I do believe in reaping what you sow."

Good. Then you should understand part of the reason why the video was made in the first place. For many years, you have publicly stigmatized gay people - and this is just a sample of the backlash you'll be receiving. You've watched it happen time and again, and now you can experience it for yourself. Buckle up.

"The strange part is those who play that game don’t usually see the toll it is taking on them personally."

You mean like the migraines you're always complaining about?

"Some people would say that my sharing the negatives I experienced when I identified as gay is stigmatizing. I don’t agree".

Guess what? It IS stigmatizing; especially when you try to make your "bad experiences" sound like ALL gay people have been through your alleged drug abuse, alcohol abuse, and so forth.

And for those of us who did have a partying phase, we don't blame our homosexuality as to why some of us went off the deep end - myself included. I personally got over it, moved on, and simply will never put myself in that position again. You, on the other hand,
LIVE to talk about this period of your life. For pay, at that.

"Granted I’ve said some things that might have come across harsh or stuck my foot in my mouth from time to time… but my heart’s intent, truly, was never to stigmatize."

Again, the famous lies of Randy Thomas.

Let's go back to something Randy himself said not long ago:

"There isn’t a proven widespread pattern of discrimination for those who identify as gay either. But the point of this post and [the statistics presented in the post] are proof that not only do those who identify as gay compete for good salaries very well… they get them. The gay identified community is the most prosperous, median salary wise, community in the country."

Sound familiar?

"Fifty-two out of every 100 doctors were Jews. Of every 100 merchants, 60 were Jews. The average wealth of Germans was 810 marks; the average wealth of Jews 10,000 marks." (from the Nazi film The Eternal Jew)

And if that's not enough, Randy Thomas's organization and homepage links to The Pink Swastika, by a known holocaust revisionist. The book accuses homosexuals of being responsible for the Nazi holocaust of WWII, even though homosexuals were one of the first groups targeted by the Nazi's to be thrown into concentration camps, and received some of the worst treatment, even after liberation.

I don't know about you, but I take great offense that Randy Thomas outright accuses me of being responsible for the deaths of an estimated 6 million Jews, along with homosexuals, gypsies, political prisoners, and many other groups the Nazi's were determined to exterminate.

It's threats like this which I take personal. Randy Thomas is obviously trying to stir up the same anti-gay sentiment which the Nazi's had for the Jews, and I don't think it's funny. And in my personal opinion, when you threaten me, you threaten my friends, my family, my pets, and anyone else who's important to me.

If the GLBT community has any sense, each individual should feel equally as threatened, and join me when I verbally attack Mr. Thomas. And the longer Randy continues to link me to the deaths of all of those innocent people, the more furious I'm going to be when the next attack comes.

I'm willing to make a deal with Randy, although I will never converse with him 1-on-1. If he stops linking gay people to the WWII holocaust, by removing that fucked-up link from Exodus, then I'll cool down. Keep the link up, then I'll keep it up with the attacks. The choice is all up to Randy Thomas.

"I hope this doesn’t sound self-righteous but while I might pray for those who stigmatize, I don’t worry about people who do things like the maker of this video. I truly don’t. Compassion? … absolutely. Pity? … not an ounce."

Please don't have either for me. If anything, I pity your future.

And don't pray for me either, because I don't believe in fairy tales.

The Weirdest Thing Happened This Weekend.....

After having dinner with some friends this past Friday, I went over to Entertainmart, which is a fairly huge new/used music and movies store.

I had already been shopping around for about 30 minutes, and while I was looking through some CD's, this young Indian (or possibly Hispanic) girl approached me.

The young lady handed me her business card, and without so much as a "hello", tried to get me to follow her outside of the store, for a "psychic reading". The way she was acting, was like I had already pre-paid for the service, and she was ready to get started.

She was already walking towards the door, and I had to call her back, to hand her back the card, and flat-out told her "I'm not into that shit!". And then she took back her card, and walked out.

I don't know who the fuck she thought she was trying to con! I'm not 100% familiar with that area, but I know there's no psychic reading place in that tiny shopping center.

My suspicion was that she was looking for a sucker to bring outside, likely to a car, to be jumped and robbed (beings it WAS after dark). Nice try - I might be country and formerly naive, but I've lived in the city for a decade now.

It's bad enough you get spam email and phone calls from idiots trying to sell you things you don't want or need, but a bitch nowadays can't even buy a Jefferson Airplane album without being harrassed by WALKING advertisements, trying to sell you entertainment, like psychic readings.

Besides - if I want some nutball to make up a bunch of bullshit about my future at the top of their head, I'll go talk to a "christian" - for free.
