Bahamas Gay Pride Event Canceled Following Death Threats

Bahamas pride 2014

The first gay pride event in the Bahamas has been cut short after one of the event’s organizers received death threats on his Facebook page, reports the Nassau Guardian

The Bahamas Pride Weekend, which started last Thursday and was set to run until Monday, was “designed to inspire, educate and celebrate the diverse Bahamian LGBT community.”

However, organizer Victor Rollins said he received the threats after he posted pictures of attendees holding pride flags along with Bahamian flags.

Rollins also said that only 11 people other than the event organizers showed, all of whom were foreigners.

He also indicated that local talk shows were particularly vocal in their opposition to the event. Many claimed that God would judge the Bahamas for allowing a gay pride event to take place.

According to The Bahama Journal, Dr. Myles Munroe, President of The Bahamas Faith Ministries International, said the fact that the LGBT community were officially given permission to host the event was “nothing more than a ‘celebration of insanity.’”

In a press statement, Munroe said gay people are blind to the fact that they are contributing to extinction of the human race:

“I am not sure what their mission or goals are in this effort but obvious they have received enough incentive and motivation to attempt something that 90 per cent of The Bahamas and Bahamians consider unacceptable and violates their collective convictions, moral standing and values.

“Perhaps it may be helpful to first ask a simple yet profound question; “Is it civil, right, reasonable, logical, sane to promote a cause, lifestyle or practice of a behavior that could in its ultimate conclusion cause the extinction of the human race. It is insanity to demand the ‘celebration’ of your own extinction.”

Both male and female same-sex sexual activity is illegal in the Bahamas.


Lesbian 'Kiss' On 'Dr. Who' Stirs Complaints And Arouses Support

Dr who lesbian kiss

U.K. communications regulator Ofcom has received six complaints following a lesbian kiss on Doctor Who, reports Gay Star News. Dr who tweet 2

The complaints came after a scene in which Madame Vastra helps to keep her wife Jenny alive in response to a threat from droids that only move when they can sense breath.

One tweet suggested that “the BBC wants to become a porn channel,” while another said that “the Lizard/Lesbian kiss was ‘unnecessary.’”

However, while some viewers were upset at the thought of two women kissing before the 9pm watershed, the majority of tweets were overwhelmingly positive.

@toddlerlex pointed out that “some parents are okay with their kids watching Dr Who's organ stealing robots & impaled body…Lesbian kiss? Complain to Ofcom! Ridic.”

It has also been noted by various commenters that the “lesbian kiss” was essentially CPR and was actually an inter-species kiss.

Bryan Fischer's Latest Rant: 'God Will Use The Pagan Armies Of Allah To Discipline The U.S. For Our Debauchery' - WATCH

Bryanbeyonce

The American Family Association's reigning king of nonsense Bryan Fischer took to the airwaves with a new batch of offensive vitriol last week. Citing Sodom and Gommorah, "pagan armies," Israelites, and other Old Testament buzz words, Fischer worked to convince listeners that the United States would meet horrific ends at the hands of radical Islamic groups should our tolerance of "debauchery" continue. With the recent outburst of violence from ISIS, it seems that Fischer spotted a winning opportunity for religious and moral generalization.

Right Wing Watch reports:

Asserting that the people of Sodom and Gomorrah are "just like the Gay Gestapo is today" and that America is celebrating behavior that God calls an abomination while persecuting those who stand for God's values, Fischer warned that "God eventually is going to run out of patience with the United States."

And when that day comes, he said, God "will use pagan armies to discipline his people if they turn from him in rebellion and disobedience and descend into debauchery," pointing to the rise of ISIS to raise the possibility that "God will use the pagan armies of Allah to discipline the United States for our debauchery."

Watch as the hate spilleth over, AFTER THE JUMP...

Rick Santorum Claims Liberal Americans Have 'Devalued' Marriage: LISTEN

Former presidential candidate and anti-gay speaker Rick Santorum appeared on "Eagle Forum Live," a radio program hosted by Phyllis Schlafly's daughter Anne Cori, and spoke up about the ways in which marriage has become "devalued" by the American public.

RickSantorumSantorum focused mostly on diction around marriage becoming associated purely with "romantic relationships" rather than reproductive purposes.

Right Wing Watch reports:

Rick Santorum said that conservatives need to “reclaim” marriage from the left and “the folks who are trying to change the marriage laws to allow same-sex couples...."

He also warned of polygamy: “If marriage is simply a romantic relationship between two people, and by the way, that’s what it’s devolved to the minds of a lot of Americans, if that’s all that marriage is well then it’s hard to make the argument that any two people or any three or four people shouldn’t be able to get married.”

Rants like his remind us just how tired and flaccid anti-marriage equality arguments have become. Perhaps the worst moment, though, came from Anne Cori, a woman who apparently detests the "celebration of single mothers." Bravo, Ms. Cori on this new low.

Listen in on the conversation, AFTER THE JUMP...

Ricky Martin May Have 'Mentored' Ian Thorpe Through His Coming Out Experience

2_thorpe

Australian tabloids are spreading a rumor: that Ricky Martin, currently a judge on the Aussie version of The Voice, mentored professional swimmer Ian Thorpe prior to his coming out this week. The "Thorpedo," as he was called when he swam in the 2000 Olympics in Sydney, told Sir Michael Parkinson that he is gay in a pre-recorded interview for Channel 10. Martin is currently denying any connection to Thorpe.

The Independent reports:

“I am extremely happy that he is talking about his happiness, and that is where I would like to leave it,” Martin apparently told a Daily Mail reporter when asked about the claims as he promoted his The Voice Australia finalist contestant in Melbourne yesterday (15 July)...

Martin was among the first to tweet his support for Thorpe:

Whether Martin and Thorpe were connected or not, it is heartening to see such support.

Martin recently expressed the joy he felt after his own coming out experience, stating in a radio interview, “I wish I could come out again because that moment felt very blissful. It really feels amazing and then when it happens you realise all your fears were in your head.” Hopefully Thorpe has felt much the same.
