Who is Kirk Cameron? I never heard of hiim, so IMO he's a "never-was," just like Jeebus.
OR....maybe it's a case of "methinks the [person] doth protest too much."
When someone starts yammering about "sin" to me, I ask them to define the word. Most xians can't. They just stammer.
Kirk Cameron - "God Hates Fags!"
The youtube video was taken down by "Living Waters Productions". I watched it earlier today. Maybe a transcript will show up. Cameron stated that Christians need to tell gay people that they are sinning and headed to hell, and that god hates gay people, then added "God hates fags and they are going to hell".
I imagine they took down the video because of the backlash. All I can say is, I did watch it earlier, and the quote is accurate.
Kirk Cameron is rapidly heading down the path to a first class slimeball homophobe. In fact, he's already there. It's probably a way to make a better living than he could make as a has-been former child actor.
I went to the Living Waters Production webside - the first popup was a movie ad for their upcoming movie about homosexuality... interesting timing there.
CLAWS - you are right, teens can and do tell lies, sometimes big, dangerous lies. The legal issue is, in the eyes of the law it doesn't matter if the teen lied, pursued the adult, and initiated the situation. In the law, the adult is fully responsible. It may well be like the story of Lolita, fictional, who ruined lives. I guess if Bean had "carded" the 15 year old, he could have avoided this situation. I don't know that anyone cards the people who they get involved with.
Bean's fall sounds like a Greek tragedy. Led down the path to destruction by his gullibility and infatuation with a beautiful lover - the 20 something meth addict / criminal who he fell for and who attacked him, extorted, and was involved in the situation with the 15 year old.
@Daniel W, in enlightened countries, such as those free of religious bigotry, and where the age of consent is more in line with what we know about not only child development but scientific theories of nature over nurture causality, fifteen is not subject to statutory rape. Our laws need revamping considerably, bearing in mind the old 7's "law" based on the notion that 7's are a lifetime change number so that laws were passed to apply to those under 7, over 14, and, as is currently the law with regard to drinking, 21. Also ignored by the report is the level of sexual sophistication the boy had. I'd like to defend these men in court. Blow this whole issue up. For all we know, that 15 year old knew more about sex than both of the adults combined.
Very upsetting news.
Bean, 66, a prominent gay rights activist and major Democratic Party fundraiser, was arrested at his home in Southwest Portland and booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center at 10:12 a.m. Wednesday. The indictment charges Bean with two counts of third-degree sodomy, a felony, and one count of third-degree sex abuse, a misdemeanor, police said ... Both Bean and Lawson are accused of having a sexual encounter with the same 15-year-old boy in a hotel in Eugene last year. They had arranged the encounter with the teen after meeting him via a website, investigators allege.
I suppose, the 15 year old may have posed as older - the hookup websites require uses attest to being 18 or older. I don't know. And people are innocent until proven guilty. And there are claims of an extortion ring
But it's still very upsetting news.
In India, gays can't get married, but monkeys can. ">200 people attend monkey wedding".
OK as long as they are not gay monkeys.
So right, Daniel. As the old Mellencamp song goes, "Ain't that America!" Don't Ask, Don't Tell was about as juvenile and absurd a policy as can be imagined, but I guess it was the most Clinton figured he could get.
