    I have to say, from the moment I saw Father Cutie, I thought well that’s a gay. He is way too popular in Florida and the Latino community to go cavorting on the beach IN MIAMI with anyone (let alone a woman)! Add to that the quick decision to leave the Church, and the even quicker private “marriage”… all too thought out.

  2. Rick says

    I had a gay vibe on him, too, from the moment I saw him. This story makes perfect sense. But it is pathetic, too.

  3. says

    I knew I disliked “Father Cutie”, now I am disgusted by him.

    He has thrown any sense of values over the fence in order to have an entertainment career. He has dishonored his church and himself. I will never understand men who go into that awful church and then spend a lifetime doing the very things they preach against.

    The hypocrisy is astonishing.

  4. RONTEX says

    Adam Lambert + Sam Sparro = one of my fantasies coming true

    I think this album is going to be LOVE & SEX & MAGIC from our shiny unicorn.

  5. David in Houston says

    Regarding the blog post: “Douchebag warns that straight men will give up women once they try the gay.”

    The author/douchebag figured out that gay people were posting negative comments.

    Here’s his post:

    David Klinghoffer

    Note to readers: This post must have been linked by some other site visited by lots of unpleasant people who are also cowards that don’t use their real names when leaving comments. Just so you know, I don’t tolerate vulgarity or personal attacks on anyone in this space. Comments that cross that line, when I see them, will be unpublished.

  6. soulbrotha says

    Is anyone one else having difficulty leaving comments on the posts after this one (Grace Jones)?

    I’m getting a strange error message stating ” there is no JSON object in response” and “no entry in _xid request.”

  7. Travis says

    Thanks for posting the Queer edition of the Stranger. I’ve read a few articles, and one or two provide decent commentary, while the others are just plain entertaining…. Thanks, Andy!

  8. crispy says

    Ack, I can’t comment on the Grace Jones hula hoop post… and it’s killing me ‘cuz I was about to channel my inner Queen of Comedy Sommore.

  9. paul c says

    I’m getting the same JSON message here and on another website (ABC). Glad it’s not just me.

    I also notice there are no comments left in any of the places that I got the message…so it’s everyone.

  10. Daniel says

    i got that message trying to post abotu Grace Jones, too. So here’s my comment: Fabulous!! She’s got an amazing body, in excellent shape. The song is 20 years old and still sounds fresh & contemporary. She’s wonderful, thank you so much for posting this!

    hey, also off topic: when are we going to get an explanation of the banner where the guy was reading something? Has that banner been explained yet & i missed it?

  11. g_whiz says

    One the “gay exorcism” clip: A friend of mine sent me a link to this footage when I woke up this morning, and belive me, this regressive mob mentality bs is not something you want to wake up to.

  12. nic says

    yeah, i always got a gay vibe from padre cutie. he had a flair about him when he was in his robes, in all his grandeur.

    @24PLAY, you are right, sir! (imagine that in the voice of ed mcmahon, followed by a hearty laugh.)

  13. Adalard says

    Glad to hear Canterbury (UK) is gay enough… But do you know the newspaper you link to, the Daily Mail, is a rag well-known for misrepresenting facts and whipping up sensationalist stories about the gays, immigrants, liberals, what it terms the ‘politically correct gone mad’ – basically anyone vaguely ‘different’ or politically to the left of Genghis Khan!
