The Cost of Homosexuality

There was a pretty heart-wrenching letter in the Register yesterday written by the father of a gay man who died of AIDS.

I know there are some out there who will mock this father and mother… most of them have already chimed in in the comment section of the Register’s website. But these people took care of their son in his final years and watched him die. If you doubt their story about what their son said to them and what they endured as a family, that says more about you than it does about them.

Liberal Ivy Leager Goes to Liberty

I heard about a story yesterday of a liberal Brown University student who decided he would attend Jerry Falwell’s Liberty University for a semester… undercover… and then write an expose book about it.

What he didn’t count on was that he’d actually like most of the people there, come to sympathize with their positions, start praying and looking for a church to join.

Chester: It Depends on What Your Definition of “Consistent” Is

And our wonderboy Chester never ceases to amaze me with his logic.

Despite the fact that Chester had promised that he would do everything he could to “protect marriage” as an institution between one man and one woman, Chester now says he didn’t really mean that.

Apparently he meant that he’d do what he could so long as he didn’t actually have to take a stand and lead on anything. Did Chet even bother to make one phone call to Democratic legislators to push for a vote? I’m gonna go out on a limb and say no, he probably didn’t.

So, not only is Chester defending his inaction, he’s saying that doing nothing is consistent with his promise to do everything he could.

Hmmm… the only way that could be true is if Chester knows that he’s incapable of doing anything.

On second thought, maybe he knew exactly what he was saying.

Like the original Emily of Revolutionary War era, this Emily is delivering important messages crucial to winning the raging war of the time, but today, this is a culture war rather than a traditional one. And, like the original Emily, sometimes it takes a woman to do (or say) that which lesser men lack the courage and tenacity to do.
