road.jpg BBC Radio1 DJ Kevin Greening, who died last December during a gay bondage session, left £515,575 to his 'life partner' Andrew Lowe and nothing to his mother: "Greening's will instructed that his mother Mary would only receive a payout if she had outlived Mr Lowe at the time of the DJ's death. Even then she would only be entitled to half the money, with the rest going to AIDS charity the Terrence Higgins Trust."

road.jpg Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams says he's "committed" to Anglican church's stand against living in sin and gay sex: "I do not believe that sex outside marriage is as God purposes it."

road.jpg Study: Serotonin affects spirituality. "A team of Swedish researchers has found that the presence of a receptor that regulates general serotonin activity in the brain correlates with people's capacity for transcendence, the ability to apprehend phenomena that cannot be explained objectively. Scientists have long suspected that serotonin influences spirituality because drugs known to alter serotonin such as LSD also induce mystical experiences. But now they have proof from brain scans linking the capacity for spirituality with a major biological element."

Prostate_2road.jpg New prostate cancer drug called most significant advance in the field in 70 years: "Abiraterone could potentially treat up to 80% of patients with a deadly form of the disease resistant to currently available chemotherapy, they say. The drug works by blocking the hormones which fuel the cancer. The Institute of Cancer Research hopes a simple pill form will be available in two to three years."

road.jpg Hello Yellow Brickle Road: Elton John finally plays the Green Mountain state. "The show — a celebratory culmination of a U.S. road trip that began in California in 1970 — was a musical milestone for the 61-year-old singer: With Monday’s Vermont concert, John has performed in all 50 states. 'I’m thrilled,' he said before the show, graciously accepting Vermont-made gifts. 'I love America. It’s taken me 39 years to get to Vermont and it’s worth it. It’s a glorious night out there. I’m very, very lucky.'"

road.jpg British activist Peter Tatchell, who was the international grand marshall at last weekend's San Diego Gay Pride and participated in the protest of that city's Manchester Grand Hyatt, criticized U.S. foreign aid to countries with poor human rights records in a speech at the San Diego Pride Human Rights Vigil: "We must urge the US State Department to make foreign aid and trade conditional on the recipient countries agreeing to respect human rights, including the human rights of LGBT people. Tyrannies should not be rewarded: No US aid for anti-gay regimes."

road.jpg Human Rights Watch demands release of two HIV/AIDS doctors being held by Iranian authorities: "Human Rights Watch says the authorities have not disclosed why Arash Alaei and Kamyar Alaei were detained last month, or where they are being held. The two brothers have travelled widely outside Iran, including to the US, to take part in conferences on HIV/Aids. They were due to take part in a major meeting in Mexico next month. Arash Alaei was scheduled to give a presentation on some of Iran's innovative HIV programmes, Human Rights Watch says. The brothers are credited with getting the Iranian authorities to tackle the stigma of HIV infection and the disease Aids, in a country where sex, drug abuse and the disease itself are taboo subjects."

  1. "I do not believe that sex outside marriage is as God purposes it."

    Then why are so many "Men of gawd" raping their altar boys?

  2. Kevin Greening is my new hero.

    A life without so much as masturbating is unnatural and "ungodly". We're all sexual creatures in one fashion or another and curtailing the urge to get off does nothing but turns us into animals (as witnessed by those poor altar boys).

    States that encourage or facilitate human rights violations deserve nothing but spite from those that don't. Uganda, Syria, Sudan, Iran, Saudi Arabia, et all, I'm peeking at you bitches.

    Not that I'm excusing his assaulting them verbally or otherwise, but haven't we all been where Christian Bale was/is? I know I've wanted to tell a few close relatives about themselves on more than a few occasions.

    And I know its dead and buried, but I have weigh in on the Nike ad thing: Is there homophobia involved some way, some how? Probably. Straight(-Acting)/Macho culture is heavily dependent on the subjegation and derrision of homosexuality. BUT, I'm not gonna lie--sweaty, musty, dirty balls in my face is a big no-no for this faggot. I don't want ANY uninvited junk (yes, "junk"--it's not just for straight boys, DERRICK) in my face under any circumstances. And yes I would feel royally owned if I got dunked on and tea bagged simultaneously.

  3. "serotonin activity in the brain correlates with people's capacity for transcendence, the ability to apprehend phenomena that cannot be explained objectively."

    There's a more concise term for "phenomena that cannot be explained objectively": delusions.

  5. If you check out Tatchell's website, he has articles that defend/support pedophilia. Why is he so popular?

  6. Ewwwww! I thought those legs belonged to Serena Williams! Or maybe RuPaul, but she's not that dark.
    EEEWWWWWW!

  7. Chris: Tatchell's articles do not support pedophilia. They are for lowering the age of consent to an age already accepted in much of Europe: 14.
