The Ex-Gays On Broadway - I Don't Believe It!

Ex-Gays Go Broadway? I Don't Think So! - Don't Get Me Started!

Today on Queerty.com (a site that I did write an article for once and now they've blocked me from being able to leave comments on the site...hmm...I know we didn't sleep together so it can't be that I was bad in bed or something....hmmmm...well, another matter for another day.) At any rate there's an entry about how the ex-gays are lighting up the gay white way. Ex-gays go Broadway? I don't think so - Don't Get Me Started!

A wacko group claiming to "cure" gays of their homosexuality is running secret meetings for closeted Broadway stars, according to a new documentary, "Gay No More?" Bill Hussung - who produced and directed the film with his wife, Mashara Canino-Hussung - says audiences will be "shocked" to see 20 popular Broadway dancers and actors who belong to the Life Ministry support group meeting twice weekly in underground locations. "It's an ex-gay movement with the core belief that you are gay because of a sexual trauma in your background. When you discover what that is, you can release it and be cured of gay desires," Hussung said. "People will be shocked to learn how widespread among the New York theater community this is."

Okay as I've quoted many times before from Mel Brooks' To Be Or Not To Be, "Without Jews, Gypsies and Faggots there would be no theatre!" I worked in theatre for a lot of years and yes, I can tell you that a lot of people get into this profession to get the attention and "love" that they couldn't get from their parents, friends or lovers. They somehow feel that the applause is acceptance and love (and it is in a way). So I get that, actors, singers and dancers are a creative bunch but are just as or more screwed up than the general population. So I can see where the "cure" people could easily work their "magic" on these emotionally challenged and weakened people because the ex-gays are no different than a cult.

To those who are living in this day and age and are so afraid of being gay, I say shame on you. I'm not saying you have to come out or have Perez Hilton out you. (God, how awful is he? Thanks for setting us gays back another twenty years in the evolution of our species with your bitchy queen attitude, ridiculous swishing, dyed hair that makes you look like the gay anime Barney Rubble and generally being an embarrassment for all of us.) But it's not 1950 when gays were not allowed to be seen or heard. With the help of reality television, Bravo and Lifetime you can't turn the television on without seeing "a gay."

I know, I get it, it's an inner struggle. It's something that people must come to in their own time, blah, blah, blah. But if you're reading this (and looking over your shoulder for fear of the ex-gay police are coming to get you) all I'm asking is that you try to accept yourself. Hell even if you're not gay, if you're seven hundred pounds and wearing capris and a sleeveless top - accept yourself. If you're six foot and one hundred pounds, accept yourself (and eat something, will you? What? You think that looks nice to be so bone thin? What are you a skeleton in a biology class? - Oh dear God, I've just become my Jewish mother!) Until we all start accepting ourselves, we're going to constantly look for validation in all the wrong places. You know, like ex-gay cults, Paris Hilton for whatever we're supposed to get out of her, and Britney Spears for what underwear not to wear.

What I've found is that shockingly enough, not that many people are so shocked by the gay thing anymore. (Exception - the South...the people who brought you Mammies, slavery and lynchings...see Gone With The Wind) So I find it shocking that the ex-gays are still waging a war that A) they have no chance of winning and B) that they're the only ones who think it's important to segregate, denigrate and fumigate one type of people. (Wait...a pattern emerges...could these people be from the south? (Okay, enough southern bashing for one blog, for the sake of the Designing Women cast - again, Lifetime Television for women and the gays who love them)

Bottom line, there's a reason it's been called the "Gay White Way" (later changed to the "Great" White Way) and no group of twenty misguided singers, dancers and actors that are taken down into the sewer system for clandestine meetings are going to make Broadway un-gay. (Wow, sounds like a new concept for a new grittier Phantom of the Opera...maybe that's what they're using against us...they sit the Broadway gays in a room and make them listen over and over to the Music Of The Night lyrics..."Let your mind start a journey through a strange new world, leave all thoughts of the life you knew before. Let your soul take you where you want to be!" Oh my God, how scary is it that without changing one word it totally applies? I'm scared. Quick see if they can say, "Masquerade" without lisping or at least lingering on the "S" sound...whew, safe...still gay. What do you hear when you play the Phantom CD backwards? "God hates fags?!" Well, we know that's not true, God doesn't really hate fags but I understand he wasn't all that wild about Cats!)

At any rate I think that as long as Harvey Firestein is around Broadway is safe from the ex-gays and to those who are trying to not be gay, I wish you a lot of luck (and could you take Lance Bass with you? He's on my last nerve and he's going to Broadway into the cast of Hairspray - get him!). Ex-gays go Broadway? I don't think so - Don't Get Me Started!

Amen! Especially as regards Perez Hilton! I was so disappointed that Kathy Griffin featured him on her show in an attempt to win his approval. I love me some D- list Kathy, not so Miss Perez. Go easy with the Southern thing . . . come visit with Mickelson and me and you will love it here!

Johnny J - I know, right? I was really less than pleased about Kathy G scraping and bowing to the slime that is Perez Hilton!! Of course, he has his own TV show now so I don't think he's all that worried about what we think. I knew that Southern thing would slap some of my MikWright pals...oops...I was naughty. And YES I need to come there and party with you kids like it's 1999!

I'm so right there with you boys....Johnny J basically stated my thoughts exactly. So, I'm just providing a second motion on that vote and letting you know we're all still reading!! I also extend a genuine invitation to come see the good things going on in the South. I would have posted this invite earlier had I not been unconcious and on a saline drip after a very rare TWO nights of parties with Johnny J. Cheers.

Hey boys, stop spoiling me...I may actually end up feeling popular and then where would we all be? As Mammy said to Scarlett about her waist, "You done had a baby Miss Scarlett and you ain't never gonna be no 18 1/2 again." As soon as I get gay thinner I'm a comin' south boys!

The real truth about the sodomites is simply they enjoy sodomy.

Homosexuality is ALL about sexual depravity - that's it - SIMPLE - TRUE.

The act is FILTHY - DIRTY - DISGUSTING - totally unnatural and PRACTISED BY ALL Sodomites - yes they are called gays - hey - i am gay BUT I AM not a SODOMITE.

They have hijacked that fabulous word and PERVERTED IT - yes they are ALL PERVERTS - True !!

Can they be CURED? YES - just give up LUST and RESIST The Devil's evil thought implants - GET BAPTIZED - Join The True Church and Let JESUS and His Holy Spirit HEAL the vile pague that destroyed SODOM AND GOMORRAH.

Making babies with a lovely wife (WOMAN) is Gorgeous - The Devil LIES to the sodomites about this and evolution bred scientists EXPERIMENT with Satan to physically mutilate these poor lost souls - WHY? Just because of filthy lust? YES - of course.

Cure for homosexuality? - REPENT - REPENT AND REPENT.

Yes - God loves everyone BUT he absolutely HATES Sodomy !!!!!

Can he forgive sodomy and Sodomites? - YES, YES -- YES !!

When they repent and Ask Christ for HELP and Convert - AMEN

Otherwise ??? - it's hell and The Lake of Fire One Day !!

This is a fact !!!

Romans 1 : 18-32

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

John Adam - my, what a sad man you are even with Jesus by your side. I don't know who you think you represent besides your own fear of inadequacy and hate but rest assured that I'm one gay who is very happy to be gay. And frankly I'm thinking Jesus is putting all you pushy so-called Christians in hell. I for one don't have to worry about such things as I do not believe anyone could create more of a hell for us than we do for ourselves. Example would be you and your hate mongering. But by all means, keep it up and be thankful the Internet was created where even deluded people like you can post opinions! Meanwhile, gotta run and get back to the sodomy!!
