Joining your Opponent in the Gutter
Now yea there's that sinful part of me that smirked and said "I KNEW IT" when I first read about this over at Pretty Good Lutherans. ANOTHER anit-gay person who is actually gay himself. Then I realized how the information was come by and that is unacceptable. The reporter should be fired. Except that I fear that was his assignment.
So what that he's gay and doesn't want to be? Does that change anything he has done? No. I thought he was a ridiculous man before and now I think he's a pathetic ridiculous man. I'm sorry he's gay and doesn't want to be. We all have to be things we don't want to be. Do you think I want to be a widow? He's just pathetic and deserves prayers and yes, a little sympathy. Knowing he was at a confidential support group doesn't really change or help anything. I suspect most anti-gay people of being gay anyways - you don't need to be invading the privacy of unhappy, struggling people to know that's mostly true.
Shame on Lavender magazine and it's reporter. Journalism should be better than that. Is this what we are coming to? God help us all
