It's a Free Fall friday and I don't need to add much to to these nuggets from the latest news cycles and message caravans. Let the chips fall where they may. Happy Holidays, my pretties!
Yeah I said it: On Meet The Press, Rudy Giuliani (pictured) was asked if he agreed with Mike Huckabee that homosexuality was an "aberrant, unnatural, and sinful lifestyle" Giuliani: "No, I don’t believe it’s sinful. My moral views on this come from the Catholic Church. I believe that homosexuality, heterosexuality, as a way of somebody leads their life isn’t sinful. It’s the acts—it’s the various acts that people perform that are sinful, not the orientation that they have.”
HOLY FIRE Crotches!: It seems that James Stabile,(pictured) has decided that his "puirty seige" by fire which allegedly cured him of his homosexuality has decided it was his lack of meds for his bipolar condition and a few drinks that caused him to loose his desire for men. Back in November, Stabile told Pat Robertson's outfit, The 700 Club of his experience with local evangelist slash "fire thrower," Joe Oden outside a Dallas nightclub, who said,"He just barely touched me, and he said, ‘Fire!’ And I remember staggering backward, and I thought I was, like, tripping on acid,...” “It was the weirdest thing ever. … I didn’t feel the desire to be with men like I had felt before.”But once this so-called miracle had been performed, Mr. Stabile was whisked away to Pure Life Ministries in Kentucky where he was to be further emancipated and reprogrammed after paying his $2100.00 entry fee plus another $150.00 weekly. However, "camp straight" didn't work out and Stabile is back over the rainbow at home with his parents, Rev. J. Stabile and wife Suzanne. The folks at The 700 Club have "no comment," and Pure Life Residential Center didn't return any of the "fees." I guess it was a case of mission impossible on Cedar Springs.
Deposit Slip, Please: Dr. Ron Paul ain't afraid to say it's allabout the benjamins , baby! His one day 6 Million dollar haul may also have included a nefarious $500.00 contribution from Don Black, leader of Stormfront, a white supremecist group. Sources have quoted a spokesman for Paul saying, "If someone with small ideologies happens to contribute money to Ron, thinking he can influence Ron in any way, he's wasted his money. Ron is going to take the money and try to spread the message of freedom." I guess his campagin needs all the cash they can get to keep that Blimp floating in Iowa.
Deconstructing MSM: Just when I thought I had heard it all, I realize that there's just going to be more everything about living the life and all that comes with it. Enter this new approach using musing from noted zoologist, researcher and authority,
Desmond Morris, who became a bestselling author by applying zoology to explain human behaviour, has now utilized the techniques to put forward an explanation for homosexuality. In his latest book, The Naked Man, he concludes that men are “made gay” because they retain infantile or juvenile characteristics into adulthood – a phenomenon known as neoteny. According to this theory, gay men also tend to be more inventive and creative than heterosexuals because they are more likely to retain the mental agility and playfulness of childhood. “Gays have in general made a disproportionately greater contribution to life than nongays,” said Morris, who is also a noted artist. “The creative gay has very much advanced Planet Earth.”“The playfulness of childhood is continued with certain people into adulthood. This is very much a positive. Adult playfulness means that certain people, often a fairly large proportion of them gay, are more inventive and curious than heterosexuals.” For the record I'm not endosing his viewpoint, just wanted to offer you something to wrap your mind around. The book will be available in January 08 from bookselling sources for around $48.00.
