  1. Dear Scott Lively,
    Congratulations! You just "proved" that Jesus and all of His disciples were gay. Well done!

  2. Wow. Could John McCain be any more offensive?
    He is REALLY psychotic. He needs to stay on his meds and quit attacking those who are hurting.
    Telling a victims family member that their loved one died a meaningless death and nothing will change is just plain heartless and cruel. Someone needs to give John Insane the "straight talk" to go away forever you senile old hater. He spent too many years in a cage in war and now he's become the animal he really is and should not be around humans. lol. Maybe him and Brian Fisher can share a cage in the future and babble their bull to each other all day long and leave the world out of their hateful rhetoric.

  3. Someone needs to point the Australian judge to other Commonwealth countries like Canada where clearly marriage is an issue for the courts, not just legislators.

    Or is the issue of equal rights foreign to Australia? Too American?

  5. I'm not surprised that "I want your love" got refused. It's not about "explicit gay sex scenes"... it's gay porn wrapped under a "indie arthouse short film" box. If Matthews wanted to make porn, he shouldn't be pretending it's anything else other than that.

  6. I am not surprised that "I want your love" got banned at that film festival. It's basically gay pr0n shot under the "arthouse short film" disguise. If Matthews really wanted to make pr0n that badly, he should be unapologetic about it instead of trying to pass it for something else.
