Neil Patrick Harris and Chris Pratt Fight It Out For 2014 'Sexiest Man Alive' - VIDEO

Sexiest man

Chris Pratt and Neil Patrick Harris are reported to be front-runners for People magazine’s annual “Sexiest Man Alive” issue, according to Daily News.

A People insider said Guardians of the Galaxy “made Chris Pratt a star and overhauled his image from that cute guy on ‘Parks and Recreation’ to a buff heartthrob. If he can make blockbuster money, he can sell a ton of magazines is the thinking. What ‘The Hangover’ did for Bradley Cooper this film did for Chris. It’s his year.”

The magazine staffer added that as the potential first openly gay “Sexiest Man Alive,” Neil Patrick Harris “would certainly make news and generate buzz for the magazine. Plus, Neil is going to be hosting the Oscars. He’s in ‘Gone Girl,’ he was just on Broadway. He’s also happily married with kids. He is having an amazing year.”

Last year, People named Adam Levine as “Sexiest Man Alive.” The honor went to Channing Tatum in 2012 and to Bradley Cooper in 2011.

Head over to Vocatic for their list of five men you forgot were bestowed with the honor (hint - it includes Nick Nolte) and watch a Daily News report (even though they think only women "anxiously await the results"), AFTER THE JUMP... (warning: autoplay)

'I'm Not Gay No More' Man Responds to Viral Video of His Megachurch Conversion

6a00d8341c730253ef01bb07a94b4b970d-800wi

The International Business Times reports that Andrew Caldwell, the "not gay no more" young man from the viral megachurch video, has written a response via Facebook.

Ha addresses his criticism — the widespread doubt that Caldwell had actually been "turned straight," but also the suggestion that Caldwell staged the moment for publicity.

Here's an excerpt of the statement:

As a child, I was raped by a member of my own family. At that time I did not think of it as abuse. I kind of enjoyed it. I kept it to myself, not realizing how it had changed me. Growing up wasn't a pleasant experience. I was harassed, heckled, and ridiculed by classmates...After joining my present church, it came to me that this lifestyle was not right. It seemed that the more I tried to quit on my own, the more intense was the temptation. All last week I fasted and prayed. On this past Saturday at the Convocation, there was an alter call. I came forward and offered my testimony. It was unscripted.

If you are quick to mock Caldwell, or if the story is leaving a bad taste in your mouth, be sure to check out BET Entertainment Editor Clay Cane's take, over at HuffPo. It's an empathetic and sensitive reminder that in discussing this issue, we should use care. Says Cane:

I hope this boy is on suicide watch. The way he is being shamed in the public [and] in that church is heartbreaking to see...The bishop said he chose to do this. No he didn't. When you're brainwashed you're not choosing anything...He's doing what he thinks will make him feel loved and accepted in his community. The funny thing is, people are mocking it... but if he were 'more masculine,' people would take it seriously.

Caldwell's "conversion" took place at the Church of God in Christ’s 107th's Holy Convocation in St. Louis, Missouri. In a statement posted online, COGIC responded to the viral video:

We believe that we should reflect the love and compassion of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in all that we do. We do not in any way compromise our biblical position against same sex unions or in favor of biblical teaching on matters of sexual conduct. At the same time we expect that our clergy and laity will be civil and considerate as they speak to men and women regarding issues related to our Christian faith. We love all people, regardless of their faith or moral standards. When we fail to express ourselves with love and humility we contradict our witness
to the world.

Furthermore, the Church of God in Christ wholly condemns acts of violence against and the subjugation of any person to verbal or physical harassment on the basis of their sexual stance. Such actions violate entirely the Christian’s obligation to love our neighbor as we love ourselves.

The Church of God in Christ will have no further comment on this matter.

Caldwell also briefly spoke to Atlanta's CBS 46 News about the video and his "conversion," which you can check out after the jump as well.

Turks

Cenk Uygur and The Young Turks recently took to discussing some hullabaloo surrounding gay men soliciting sex in the mens' bathroom at the library of Cal State University, Bakersfield. According to the Runner Online, men have been soliciting meet-ups at the mens' room in question on Craigslist. Notably, the restroom in question has a glory hole which the university has been trying to cover up but students keep dismantling the patch job. Some students however have been upset about the dangerous liaisons happening in the library.

Said Ben Mankiewicz, "Who are these f--cking kids all disgusted by this? These are college kids having sex in the bathroom. [Gavel bangs] Acquitted."

Added Uygur, "If your natural reaction is, 'I have to put an end to that, you're an a--hole."
