Officials did not name the man, who said he created the blog while on vacation in Atlanta. The blog called for “death to (homosexuals) . . . death without exception”. There is no further information at this time except that he has been charged with “incitement of murder” and faces up to five years in prison and a $58,200 fine if convicted.

road.jpg Priest in Victoria, British Columbia accuses Bishop of lying about dismissal of church employee based on his sexual orientation: “The church has been in an uproar over the resignation of parish administrator John Oetter on Dec. 29 and the loss of the well-liked Favero three weeks later. Hundreds of parishioners have attended meetings and sent letters to the bishop asking for an apology and for the reinstatement of Favero and Oetter. Some church members are so upset they are threatening to withhold their financial contributions to the church. Yesterday, Favero said the problem began in May when a handful of influential people complained to Gagnon, the bishop of Victoria and the Island, that Oetter was gay.”

    Yahoo (and anyone who is over 16 years old), tore Heatherette a new sparkly asshole today :
    As if to underscore this, the theme of Heatherette’s show was “The Wizard of Oz,” though what this had to do with the collection, which could only be described as “tired club kids with a glue gun gone wild in the fabric trash bins of the garment district” – is anyone’s guess.

    These looks, worn by both guys and girls, were the supposed Heatherette “couture” showpieces that will never be sold but one assumes are meant to reinforce the fabulousness of the brand in order to push the jeans, t-shirts and prom dresses. But instead, they were an embarrassment of embellishment and didn’t look like the work of designers who have been at this for nearly a decade – since 1999, when their first line of customized tees was snatched up by Patricia Field, the premier destination for their brand of glittery wares. They looked like the result of overworked students scrambling at the stroke of midnight to finish a project due the next day.

    I’m sorry but if you are not smart enough to look both ways before crossing the street I don’t believe there is much hope for you. When will they learn they can’t legislate against stupidity?

    Re: Sexing up the male athlete.

    Am I the only one who finds this trend a bit overdone? I was watching clips from the recent Dieux du Stade DVD, and boy is it ever out there..ie it’s limit if the photographers don’t ask the athletes to bend over and spread their cheeks for the camera – it’s just that blatantly gay porn oriented. I was also surprised to see the athletes acting as ‘complicit’ in their objectification as they were..or maybe they’re just that liberated in Europe..but really, I wonder if it’s a sign of progress that men can be as objectified as women are..or maybe it really is?

    ps: Andy you should have included your quote from the article, it’s a great one!!
