It is a horrible thing when xtians stick to the rules of their book for one thing but not others. @ Dallas, so not only do gays have to come out of a closet, but now they have to come out of a Republican closet which it seems has doors with multiple locks and is made of impenetrable steel.

Just as there are Gay Republicans and Gay Christians, if it were allowed, we would see gay black members of the KKK and Jewish Gay Nazis.  Self hatred is a terrible thing and it comes in many forms.  Anyone who says that there sexuality is not an issue, or is not as important as another issue, or it is not what defines them, is downgrading the essence of who they are, their very core.  And make no mistake my friends, no matter how comfortable they pretend to be, no matter how "out" they are, no matter how "liberated: they claim, they will be the first ones to hand the rest of us over to the captains of the death camps.  That might sound dramatic, but the reality is that they relate to you and I when they want sex and/or some entertainment at a club, but they yearn for heterosexual "respectability", approval by the oppressor.

Sentient, I am embarrassed to say I had forgotten Jim West.
"James Elton "Jim" West (March 28, 1951 – July 22, 2006) was an American politician. In 2005, while Mayor of Spokane, Washington, he was the target of allegations of the sexual abuse of boys twenty years earlier. These allegations became public after West became a target of a sting operation conducted by his hometown newspaper, theSpokesman Review. Some journalists and academics criticized the paper for what they saw as a form of entrapment.[1] West admitted engaging in homosexual behavior with adults, despite an earlier record of supporting "anti-gay" legislation. Though never charged, he was removed from office by recall in 2005. The Federal Bureau of Investigation eventually closed its investigation and took no action for lack of evidence.

"In 1982, West was elected to the Washington State House of Representatives as aRepublican representing the 6th legislative district. He was elected to the Washington State Senate in 1986 serving until his resignation to become Mayor of Spokane, Washington, in 2003. In the Senate West held the positions of Chairman of the Committee on Health, Chairman of the Ways and Means Committee and Majority Leader. During his years in the legislature, West developed a record as an opponent of homosexual rights. He supported several "anti-gay" bills, including one that would have banned gays and lesbians from working in schools and day care centers. He unsuccessfully proposed a law banning all sexual activity among unmarried persons under the age of 18. In 1995, when West was a state senator, he advocated the impeachment of Gov.Mike Lowry for alleged sexual harassment.

"He joined the conservative Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church of Spokane led by Pastor Lonnie Mitchell. He received support there and attended services regularly until his death from complications from cancer on July 22, 2006.[1]"

Too often churches are just another place to bring the like-minded hateful together.

You know your god is man-made when he hates all the same people you do.

Mr. President, thank you! I love and admire you. If you ever need a buddy, here I am. It was nice having you as president - sorry about that 2012 election, and say hi to President Romney in Jan 2013.

This was from Joe.my.god under the heading "silver lining"

Actually I didn't know a sh*t cloud could have a silver lining.... but here it is. To my sisters and brothers in Mississippi, as well as Alabama, Tennessee, Louisiana, and South Carolina, all I can say is, I feel so bad for you. Been there. Sorry, taking that tour of the South off my bucket list.
