In a country that doesn't (officially) recognize state-sponsored religion, whose Constitution says "all men are created equal," where bigotry and bias are abhorred — why do otherwise intelligent and sensitive people feel they can engage in hate speech against gay people?

"It's Not Gay" But It's Okay

In an e-mail last week, the American Family Association thought I might be interested in buying a DVD they are selling called "It's Not Gay." Um…no.

However, if anyone has seen this — I'd love to hear a report. It's probably good for camp value alone. Otherwise, this is what I'm imagining I would hear:

Ever since those times alone with Father Scalia in the back of the rectory, where he showed me how two men can tongue-kiss, I thought I was GAY! But, then I met up with a group known as Celebrating Unity through Life-Long Theology (CULT), had my brain washed and finally realized sucking dick is something I only had the urge to do and talk about because of Satan. Now I don't do that anymore. Talk about it, I mean — I still suck dick.

It's interesting to note that a 501(c)(3) organization has such a robust e-commerce section on its web site. But I suspect the folks at the AFA are fully aware that turning a healthy profit through hawking products could endanger their not-for-profit status with the IRS (well, at least in years when a responsible president is in the oval office). I'm sure that's why items are marked with a "suggested donation" rather than a selling price. Or maybe that's because chairman Donny Wildmon, et. al. are hoping a prospective buyer will be moved with some sort of sanctimonious spirit/guilt to give more than is called for. Whatever the case, how moral is it to knowingly skirt laws in this manner in a greedy crusade to enrich your own coffers?

It doesn't take an "expert" to agree this type of unethical, degenerate behavior is a clear warning that the sanitized version of hypocrisy being presented to students [in this particular DVD] is not the whole truth…

It's Not Gay

It's Not Gay presents a story that few have heard, allowing former homosexuals the opportunity to tell their own story in their own words.

Along with medical and mental health experts, these individuals express a clear warning that the sanitized version of homosexuality being presented to students is not the whole truth.

Uncompromising, yet compassionate, It’s Not Gay is a fair and balanced approach to this challenging subject.

Runtime is 28 minutes. (Editor's note: 28 minutes too long, I'm presuming.)
