United Methodists voted yesterday to uphold the denomination's anti-gay position that deems homosexuality "incompatible with Christian teaching," despite protests from activists, Religion News Service reports:
Two “agree to disagree” proposals were soundly defeated during separate votes by the nearly 1,000 delegates gathered for the United Methodist Church’s General Conference in Tampa, Fla. One proposal would have replaced the “incompatible” phrase in the Book of Discipline, which contains the denomination’s laws and doctrines. Both proposals sought to soften the disputed doctrine by adding more ambiguous statements about homosexuality...The proposals defeated on Thursday would have acknowledged that diversity, but, some conservatives argued, at the cost of muddying traditional doctrines."
Today, Methodist delegates are scheduled to debate the church's bans on same-sex marriage and gay clergy.
Justin Timberlake offers his grooming rituals to Details:
"I don't like when I see guys do too much hair gel. I don't mean Pauly D—because that's basically performance art. But when you use enough hair gel that your hair becomes a sculpture—and you wanted it to look that way? It's just weird...There were many moments in my teenage years where I succumbed to, um, the weirdness of the group I was in. And in trying to conform—we're marionettes!— I ended up looking like a moron."
Ted Nugent Tells CBS Reporter 'I'll Suck Your D**k' in Bizarre Rant After Being Told He is 'Not Moderate': VIDEO
Ted Nugent has really odd ways of showing he's an even-keeled guy in a follow-up interview to his recent NRA Obama threats.
Says Nugent to CBS reporter Jeff Glor:
"Call me when you sit across from someone who has more families with dying little boys and girls who get a call to take them on their last fishing trip in life. Call me when you meet someone who does that more than I do. Because that's really moderate. That's extreme. I'm an extremely loving and passionate man. And people who investigate me honestly, without the baggage of political correctness, ascertain the conclusion that I'm a damn nice guy. If you can find a screening process more powerful than that I'll suck your d**k.
Nugent then turned to Glor's female producer (according to TMZ) and said, "Or I'll f**k you, how's that sound?"
