Stoll RoadJames Stoll, forgotten gay hero? "Mr. Stoll, one of the first openly gay ministers in America, had a difficult life, and his demons seemed to follow him to an early grave. But he was hugely responsible for introducing American churchgoers to gay rights. For those who support gay rights, he ought to be a hero; for those troubled by increased acceptance of homosexuality, he makes a vivid villain."

  1. That editorial by Klarman in the LA Times is truly disgusting. The only thing worse than being a coward is apologizing for one.

  2. Whooo boy! I know that pic of Jakey G. is fake and we've seen nearly all his skin in previous pics through the years, but something about that PhotoShop job does something magical to me.

  3. I'M gay and I am Conservative. For many, many years the Republican Party and conservatives championed small central government and controlled fiscal spending. Regrettably under the last president whom I will never believe was a republican in the truest sense spent like a queen with an addiction and helped to enlarge Washington. Not conservative values.

  5. I knew Jim Stoll back in 1970. He helped me to come out. Whatever his flaws may have been, he passionately believed in gay equality.

  7. Unfortunately gay Republican's continue to champion the fantasy that somehow they support the GOP because they believe in smaller government and fiscal responsibility - yet there hasn't been a Republican President since Eisenhower who even attempted to balance the budget - NO not even the cerished Ronnie Regan (who never even submitted a balanced budget) - and every single one of them has overseen the growth within the federal government. The ONLY president since 1955 to preside over a balance budget PLUS a budget surplus was Bill Clinton. And Clinton's biggest problem was that he lied about something totally unrelated (and unimportant) to his job as President - a freakin' blowjob - and will forever be vilified by the Republicans for something many of their own elected party members have been guility of - extra marital affairs.

  8. Ask a few gay Repugs how much money they lost during Bush's 8 year fiasco. Now that's real fiscal responsibility.
