The Horrible Advice Billy Graham Gave Gay Youth
Before I get into this I’d like to state that I’m not an atheist and I have nothing but respect for people who are religious. I try never to judge or question anyone, especially when it comes to religion or politics.
However, the other day while everyone was singing the praises of Billy Graham I just couldn’t help thinking about the dangerous things he said to gay people. How could I help but think that? And I didn’t see one single person mention a thing about that, not even my most liberal social media friends.
While he was known for his inclusivity during the civil rights struggles of the 1960s, Graham was adamantly anti-gay.
Sure, he was a product of his times, but that’s no excuse to gloss over moments like this one, in which he responded to a gay youth that “We traffic in homosexuality at the peril of our spiritual welfare.”
You can read an exchange he had with a young girl, here. It’s a photo from an old newspaper piece where I guess Graham was giving out spiritual advice. Here’s another quote…
Your affection for another of your own sex is misdirected, and will be judged by God’s holy standards.
New Web Series Exploring Open Gay Marriage
From what I gather, this is about a new web series where two gay married men explore an open marriage.
Playing the roles of Michael and Michael are Michael and Michael — Michael Feldman (The Neighbors, ABC) and Michael Rachlis (Tim and Eric’s Awesome Show, Great Job, Adult Swim) – real-life partners who got married just over two years ago.
Here’s the rest. I watched the trailer and to be honest I don’t think I’ll be rushing to watch this one. I don’t think I’d have much in common with these people. But I will give it a try eventually.
Russell Tovey’s Fiance’s X-Rated Past
I honestly don’t see what the big deal is with Russell Tovey’s fiance. So the guy did porn. Big deal. But it’s been creating little firestorms all over the web since the story broke. They both look as if they’re nice guys to me, and I couldn’t wish them better if I tried.
Of course, as soon as the information became public, everyone seemed to have an opinion on the matter. And, no, they weren’t all positive or congratulatory.
You can read more, here. Most of the comments in this case tend to be positive.
