Popular Gay Comedian Tom Ballard Accused of Sexual Harassment
Tom Ballard is popular in Australia so I’ve never heard of him before.
According to this article, Ballard has been accused of sexually harassing another male comedian who identifies as straight. Here’s a statement from the alleged victim…
I go to his hotel room after a gig; eager to learn about the art form I’ve been practicing for a month, not knowing what’s about to happen. He offers me a glass of port wine. What fun we are having, I think. He finishes his glass, reaches over and grabs my glass, takes a sip then hands it back. He kisses me then. Sticks his tongue right into my mouth.
The alleged victim goes into a lot more detail about what happened to him.
You can check the rest out at this link. Ballard is denying all allegations, and the police decided not to pursue the matter. Read the comments with this one.

Gay Pride Parades Split European Catholics
As a Catholic I can’t say this surprises me. It’s the same here in the US. The only thing that surprises me is that I know for a fact there are closeted gay priests living double lives. I’ve known them all my life, and I’ve posted about them here on this blog a few times. So why do they keep hiding it? I can’t imagine living that way.
