Michelle Bachmann Calls Gays “Barbarians”

July 13, 2011

“Barbarian” (Webster’s definition): alien, savage, primitive, cruel, uncultured, coarse.
In my 65 years of life as a lesbian I have been called many names, but NEVER ‘barbarian’, as Michelle Bachmann called gay people, yesterday. I can identify with ‘alien’ because that is the way most of the world treats gays. As for the rest of the definition, Michelle, take a look at your own sexual orientation; not exactly squeaky clean. Generalizing is destructive. We did it to African Americans and women. Further, Michelle stated that passing gay marriage will only lead to making polygamy normal. Take a look at your Bible, because polygamy was the norm. Abraham, the ‘father’ of Judeo/Christian faith was polygamous AND was married to his half-sister. That’s incest.
Come out of the dark ages, Michelle and all who agree with her. This is NOT a person I want for our next President.

Marcus Bachmann: Another Anti-Gay Propagandist

July 13, 2011

Republican Michelle Bachmann’s husband, Marcus, a Christian Therapist who believes one can “pray away the gay”, is just another in a long line of naïve and prejudiced Christian ‘scholars’ who believe God created ALL people heterosexual. Based on what? The Creation story and/or the 6 biblical ‘clobber’ passages? I, a Christian lesbian, would love to show him how wrong he is. He sees the issue from one side, for he was created straight. I see the issue from both sides, for I did not recognize I was gay till the age of 27. I lived a straight life; well, I tried and it tormented me because I could never feel towards men the way all my women friends did. All gays have experienced life in this way and know better than straight people that you can’t “pray away the gay” because God created us gay and doesn’t want us to be something other than who HE created us to be. Gays have a frame of reference; straight people don’t. They don’t know what gays feel, but they continue to tell us that what we feel is not natural. What self-righteousness!! Reminds me of the Pharisees and Jesus was not thrilled with them.
To Marcus Bachmann and all who believe homosexuality is not God created and blessed, I tell you that the only reason a gay person wants to change and be straight is brought about by the condemning attitude of people like the Bachmann’s. Stop perpetuating homosexuality as abnormal and immoral, for there is no Biblical evidence that backs up your belief. Actually, there is biblical evidence against your anti-gay belief. Want to help gays – accept us as the way God intended us to be.
To my gay brothers and sisters, hang in there. Do NOT buy into this perverted anti-gay garbage.
To Marcus and those who believe as he, I would love to debate you on this issue. If you’re so confident that you’re right you should love my challenge. Email me – let’s talk.

Gays, Roman Catholic Church

July 4, 2011

Till the early 1600’s most of the world population believed the Earth was the center of the Universe and the Sun and all planets revolved around the Earth. Then came Galileo, a scientist, who stated that it was the Sun upon which all revolved.  This went against the belief (doctrine) of the Roman Catholic Church and Galileo was accused of being a heretic (a person who opposes Church teaching) and sentenced to life imprisonment. Nearly 350 years later, in 1992, Pope John II stated “Theologians failed to grasp the profound non-literal meaning of Scripture when they described the physical structure of the universe. This led them to transpose a question of factual observation into the realm of faith.”
The Roman Catholic Church reversed its belief and accepted Galileo’s.
I believe, as a heretic myself, it is time for the Church to accept the fact that Pope John II’s 1992 statement applies to homosexuality and the Church should reverse its doctrinal condemnation. Science is not always wrong or satanic.
