I Wanna Be A Macho Man: The Prosperity Gospel According to Eddie Long
reverend eddie long

Sikivu Hutchinson: In America being a macho man and a professional homophobe is big business, one that jeopardizes the lives and mental health and wellness of thousands of gays and lesbians. Regardless of whether the allegations against Long are true or not, his prosperity gospel of gay-bashing and robber baron profiteering at the expense of poor black people is another indictment of the moral injustice that happens on "God's" watch.

No one knows if the allegations are true, but seriously, the pics in this video are pretty gay. Also, I don't know why anyone wants to know wtf Ted Haggard has to say about anything.

Im cross posting this because it's relevant in discussions of race and sexual orientation. Scathing editorial in The Root, by Craig Washington "A Sermon for Bishop Eddie Long". "Accusations of sexual misconduct against the popular Atlanta pastor are a warning for all churchgoers who have fallen victim to charisma, bling ministries and leaders who engender fear and loathing."

Not being in Atlanta, this is the first I've heard of this minister and his church. I liked some of the language of the author, "So as the story of Bishop Eddie Long swells from Facebook to CNN, engorged by our lust for fallen giants and monsters, let us not lose our heads. Let us learn the lessons that the legion and their leader willfully chose to ignore. "

We actually have no proof that Eddie Long has been abusing young men in his Church. It's just their word against his, for the moment. With "the church" being so central to the US black community in so many towns and cities, is there any alternative? "Atheism" doesnt seem to offer up much. Random observations.

Kellie, thanks for remining us of the connectionions between militant homophobia and fundamentalism, and demagoguery. This is a frightening video, these scapegoating macchiavelian leaders will stop at nothing to discriminate.

Grudgetta, thank you for posting that cartoon. I so agree.

Yet ANOTHER homophobic megachurch pastor now embroiled in a gay scandal. What IS it about the "homophobic megachurch paster" and "gay scandal" that binds the 2 soo closely? Is it that same-sex-loving-men are so charismatic, they can't help but become ministers of megachurchs? Is it that being a paster of a megachurch turns on the "gay gene"? Is it that being a pastor is an effective way of finding vulnerable, nubile young men and boys in the height of their sexual curiosity? Damn!

France Set To Deport Gay Cameroonian Tomorrow Lezgetreal.com

In January, Honoré arrived in France after fleeing from his homeland in Cameroon. He is scheduled to be deported to Cameroon because he did not automatically apply for asylum on the grounds of being gay in Cameroon would lead to him being persecuted. He did not know that he could do that. On 12 September, he was scheduled to be deported in handcuffs and shackles, but the pilot of the plane refused to do so.

Lovely place, France. So tolerant. Good thing I'm not planning any European vacations to Paris or something.
