  1. The Rock is Hercules but who is portraying Ialoas?

    Oh that's right. This is the Hollywood version of Hercules; no boyfriends and no male lover for the mighty Hercules.

    The gay scrubbing of history, even historical religious figures continues.

  2. I love how that B&B couple in England claimed to be Christians and made it clear that there wasn't a single bed for two gay guys. I wonder how many straight Mr & Mrs. "Smiths" they've entertained over the years, which they may have winked an eye to. Craven Christians.
