Bozell: Gay and Godless on the Public-School Stage

By Brent Bozell

Liberals who demand church-state separation would pitch a fit if a public school decided to perform a play that reverently told stories of the Old Testament, whether it was the story of creation, the story of Noah, or Moses or Joseph and his brothers.

But somehow, if a public school decides to put on a play mocking God and the Old Testament, that is not a church-state violation. The separation police don't want religious (or atheist) minorities to face religious indoctrination in a public school. But anti-religious indoctrination mocking the Judeo-Christian majority is a glorious festival of free speech.

Take, for example, the taxpayer-funded Pioneer Valley Performing Arts Charter School in the People's Republic of Massachusetts. The school is in South Hadley, part of the same community of Northampton which was happily nicknamed "Lesbianville, USA" after the 2000 census showed more lesbians live there per capita than anywhere in the country. MSNBC host Rachel Maddow has a house there.

Smack dab in the middle of the Lenten season, as many Christians prepare for Easter, the school scheduled performances of a play called "The Most Fabulous Story Ever Told." Make no mistake: This is a deliberate, and intentionally vicious, attack on Christianity.

"Fabulous" was written by the gay Jewish playwright and screenwriter Paul Rudnick. In this deconstruction of the Bible, God first creates two gay couples, Adam and Steve and Mabel and Jane.

These four are expelled from Eden and end up on Noah's ark, where Steve invents infidelity by having an affair with a rhinoceros. (Since that is somehow not enough, the women are sexually paired with a rabbit and a pig.) When the ark lands, this gay quartet discovers a strange race of humans who describe the horror of procreation. "We're gay," Adam announces. "We don't have children. We have taste."

The first act concludes with Adam and Steve being two of the wise men at the Nativity. The second scene opens in the current day, with a depiction of the birth of Jesus in a New York apartment with the "wise man" Steve now being HIV-positive and the lesbian Jane in the place of Mary, the Mother of God, who complains, "I'm not supposed to be pregnant, I'm a bulldyke!"

Mabel arranges to be married to Jane by a handicapped lesbian rabbi with a cable-access TV show. We're also "treated" to Santa Claus as an "exquisitely curdled fairy."

It's one thing for this Bible shredding play to be performed in a community theater by adults. It's another thing entirely for these to be acted out in a public school by teenagers.

For his part, Rudnick is quite clear he doesn't believe in God. (Shocker.) In the script's introduction, he writes, "I believe in what human beings can do when you give them fifty bucks to guy some cheap red polyester velvet. Some people need more, something with vengeance and commandments and jihads."

He approached the play with the notion "Certainly my version of biblical matters could be every bit as absurd as the King James take. Creation tales tend towards the delirious; trying to explain the cosmos inevitably leads to comedy."

The Left rebels against God, and then declare they are the open-minded, peaceful ones. Pat James, a lesbian who bought a bunch of tickets for each performance, insisted, "The Haydenville Congregational Church is supportive all the way. We are an open and affirming congregation."

Does Rudnick's play sound like something you could support as "affirming"? This is the point. They're not only insulting they're dishonest. They know that to traditional Jews and Christians, this is a double-middle-finger salute. It only "affirms" by mockery. Why not just say so?

Because they're hypocrites. Leftists, more the radical ones, have an Orwellian habit of describing themselves as "inclusive" and "welcoming," but they shriek intolerance for people they think are intolerant. They don't have the decency to wonder if productions like these are the polar opposite of "open and affirming." They reject decency itself.

Then there was the school's principal, Tom Goldman, who asked, "Is it the role of public school to facilitate an exchange of ideas on the themes explored in this particular play? This is an excellent question, with answers that I imagine will be debated in what I hope will be climate of civility and a desire to understand others' viewpoints."

This man has the backbone of a noodle.

So to create an "exchange of ideas," the first thing you do is leave a flaming bag of dung on someone's doorstep? The Left has a bad habit of calling something a mere "dialogue" when they are dictating their terms of surrender to the culture. The note about hoping for a "climate of civility" is especially ridiculous, since there is no civility in the product on stage.

    I find this article insulting. You imply being gay is being godless. You act as though it were some choice. It isn’t. It is the way some of us were born. I believe in God and I am every bit as worthy of being treated with respect than you expect from others.

      Maybe what you find insulting is that someone exercised their First Amendment right, that person just happens to be more conservative than you. Why can’t those that have a more liberal point of view give everyone the respect they deserve under the First Amendment? I for one am tired of the hypocrisy for the people who claim to be First Amendment supporters until it goes against their beliefs.
      I am a member of the United States armed forces, I swore to defend the constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic. I don’t agree with everyones opinion, but I respect it under our constitution, I expect the same respect! If you can not respect an opposite point of view then you are an enemy of our constitution!
      If you don’t like the fact that everyone is equal under the laws and constitution of the United States of America then there are many countries you can move to!

      Homosexuality is a sin because God said it is a sin (READ: Geneses 19:5-8, Jude 7, Lev 18:22-23, Lev 20:13, 1Tim:9-10, & Romans 1:26-27) AND since it is a sin just like any other sin God has provided a way to overcome the sin of homosexuality just like He has with all other sins.
      HOW, in a “nutshell”…
      If not a believer in Jesus Christ then: Acts 16:31 “…Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved.”
      If one is a believer already…
      1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
      THEN…
      II Peter 3:8… but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory, both now and to the day of eternity.

      Practicing homosexuality is a choice…read Romans 1. Also,
      1 Corinthians 6:9 Or do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, 10) nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, shall inherit the kingdom of God. 11) And such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and in the Spirit of our God.
      I would assume that ‘were’ means after receiving Christ people repented of these sins, no longer practiced them.

      I have read testimonies where people have come out of that lifestyle through the grace of God. Focus on the Family has an outreach called ‘Love Won Out’.
      I, also, take issue with the phrase ‘Mary, Mother of God’- God existed before the world was created. Mary didn’t exist until 2000 years ago. She was chosen for her obedience to God to be the mother of Jesus. She had children after Jesus was born so she cannot be considered a virgin and she definitely cannot answer any prayers, so there is no reason to pray to her. Read your Bible…only God can answer your prayers.

      Which “God” do you believe in? The “God” that says, “They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator–who is forever praised. Amen. Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.”

      Is your God, that God? Just checking…

      While the tendency to homosexuality may not be a choice the acting on those tendencies is. All of us have various tendencies in our lives. Some are tempted by the spouse of another, some are tempted by children, some are tempted to watch and become sexually excited by viewing others in sexual situations (i.e. pornography), some are tempted by the desire to have things that they don’t have the money to purchase, some are tempted by the desire to end the life of another, the list of possible temptations is endless.

      The question is what one does with those temptations and/or tendencies. Does one look to what is the way God has designed the world and His commandments or do they act in a way that fulfills their own wants and desires? In that respect, by acting on those tendencies the action becomes a message that God’s will is less important than the person’s will. It is de facto saying that God does not exist, only what I want, what I feel is right, what makes me happy is what matters.

      As a person you are right…you are worthy of being treated with respect. However, your actions, if you are acting on your homosexual tendencies, do not require respect from those who disagree. This can be summed up in one sentence: “Love the sinner, hate the sin.”

      I think you have missed the point. The point is that you are treated with respect. We disagree
      on the application of the word “Marriage”. This is the the debate. Not disrespect, not hatred as some on the left would have you believe. Unfortunately, this will not be the end of it, whatever the decision. The left will not stop here. There will always be another issue until they completely destroy the republican/conservative party. In the process, unfortunately, you will also destroy this nation founded on the belief of God and yourselves.

      You don’t find the fact that this play was put on during Easter week insulting to Christians? If you’re so God-fearing/loving why aren’t you insulted about that instead of your personal sexuality? I think this is at the heart of the militant homosexuals/lesbians. They’re concerned with their sexuality to the exclusion of all else.

      I’ve known a couple of people in my life (heterosexuals) who were absorbed with their sexuality and I couldn’t stand them. That’s all they could talk about and always gave me the impression they were either getting into or out of bed and one of them didn’t care with what guy. She disgusted me and I had nothing I could talk to her about because I believe that my sexual life is my business.

      This performance was full of actors portraying homosexuals and lesbians and making the most vile assertions that could be made regarding Christianity and you claim to be a believer.

      If you should be treated with respect, why shouldn’t our religious beliefs be treated with respect. You are a hypocrite!

      I’m sure there will be many posts here from homosexuals claiming that everyone here is mean and without giving a thought to the fact that Christianity has been grossly insulted. I do think it behooves you to remember that God is, after all, God, the ruler of the Universe and not some wimpy guy in a bedsheet floating on a golden cloud far far away!

      There is not now, nor has there ever been any credible evidence that homosexuality is not a choice.

      It was Dr. Hamer, from the University of Hawaii who claimed to have found a homosexual gene that predisposed people to homosexuality.
      What he failed to tell was that he is a homosexual activist. His study was later sent to an independent group of scientists who determined that no such gene .existed. Since that time Hamer has admitted it was a lie. When asked about it he said, “It doesn’t matter now, people already believe it and it has made life easier for homosexuals.”

      You may have missed the Title of this article is ‘Gay AND Godless’, not ‘Gay = Godless’.
      The article is pointing out the hypocrisy of the people writing, producing and hosting the play. These people all cry for ‘tolerance’, yet spit in the face of Christian beliefs.
      Perhaps they should simply change their cry to ‘Tolerate ME, and my disdain for you!’

      The ‘Tolerance’ preachings are entirely self-centered accusations that ‘everyone else is intolerant of my behavior and they should be locked in prison’ (read: ‘hate crimes’).

      Yes, Christians are taught to ‘love thy neighbor as thyself’. What are the ‘Tolerance’ bigots taught? Perhaps ‘Force my beliefs down the throats of others, despite their religious beliefs?’ or perhaps ‘Bully those who don’t think like us and force them into doing what I want!’

      Let’s really talk ‘tolerance’ shall we?
      If this play were about Mohamed, Paul Rudnick would already be dead and the play would never have been produced.

      Sorry sfm61350, but yes, being a practicing gay with no consciousness that it is sin is Godless. However, it it not “godless”. A gay person’s “god” is NOT God, our Creator, but themselves, their own desires, their own lusts, their own thinking. God made sure it was absolutely clear in His Word that homosexual behavior is deviant, perverted, aberrant. Read Romans chapter 1 on it should be clear that God gives over gay people to do what they want, but His allowing them to commit homosexual acts IS HIS JUDGMENT on them. People give in to various sins….lying, cheating, fornication, stealing, etc. However, God can and does give victory over these sins so that a person no longer freely lies or habitually steals, etc. In 1 Corinthians 6, Paul talks of those who freely, without a guilty consciousness practice various sins include homosexuality. However, in v. 11 Paul says they can be delivered from the power of such sins. Know God and His Word and you’ll know true freedom.

      All through the Bible the “gay lifestyle” has been an evil side of mankind. Are you one of those modern day Bible Theologists-philosophers who have it from God himself that he has changed his mind, or perhaps uses a politically correct Bible with your own corrections because they reflect the life you lived before you had a Bible?

      Article never said being gay is godless. You inferred it. It makes no judgments about being “gay” at all. What it points out quite accurately is the hypocrisy of the activist left condemning and preventing any form of respectful Christian expression (under the guise of separation of Church and State) while considering a play trashing Christianity as appropriate. If you believe in God then you should be just as offended as the Judeo/Christian community.

      If being homosexual is not a choice it is genetic. If being homosexual is genetic it can, potentially, be treated by medical science, much like other genetic disorders. Someday it might even be cured. What a wonderful day that will be.

      Personally, I would think the “gay” community would be as offended as the Jewish and Christian Communities by this play. It is such a horrendous depiction of the gay community I’d almost say it was an anti-gay tract. This could prove more effective for the Christian community because it reveals the truth as to what the radical activist in the gay community and the political left are really about. This play is an act of anti-christian terrorism that makes the left about as appealing as a Muslim practicing a “religion of peace” that calls for strapping bombs onto their children.

    There are some thing in life which work, some things which don’t

    Take away all the values Christianity has given and let them eat their bread.

    It is not Christianity is perfect. It is the difference between a people struggling and some times failing, to find and do what is right, rather than blaming others for every failure in life and expecting them to feed them.

    Gen 2:18 Then the LORD God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him.”
    Gen 2:19 Now out of the ground the LORD God had formed every beast of the field and every bird of the heavens and brought them to the man to see what he would call them. And whatever the man called every living creature, that was its name.
    Gen 2:20 The man gave names to all livestock and to the birds of the heavens and to every beast of the field. But for Adam there was not found a helper fit for him.
    Gen 2:21 So the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and while he slept took one of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh.
    Gen 2:22 And the rib that the LORD God had taken from the man he made into a woman and brought her to the man.
    Gen 2:23 Then the man said, “This at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.”
    Gen 2:24 Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.

    Deu 12:29-31 “When YHWH your Elohim does cut off from before you the nations which you go to dispossess, and you dispossess them and dwell in their land, guard yourself that you are not ensnared to follow them, after they are destroyed from before you, and that you do not inquire about their mighty ones, saying, ‘How did these nations serve their mighty ones? And let me do so too.? “Do not do so to YHWH your Elohim, for every abomination which YHWH hates they have done to their mighty ones, for they even burn their sons and daughters in the fire to their mighty ones.”

      vickimarie – I was raised in a strict Missouri Synod Lutheran household so I studied the Bible. Have you actually read the various “crimes” for which the death penalty is prescribed? Not coming to the marriage bed a virgin is one. Cursing, witchcraft, adultery will get you stoned. How about God killing Oman for purposely not impregnating his sister-in-law Tamar after her husband died? Long ago I learned that while the Bible has many positive lessons for all, if you don’t try to cull out the then current cultural bias and the story from the lesson, you will fall down the rabbit hole.

    “If you don’t like the fact that everyone is equal under the laws and constitution of the United States of America then there are many countries you can move to!” Oh really? How mature of you. I may point out not everyone is equal or has equal rights in this country. Please – Now I am an enemy of the constitution? Oh wow, your a member of the military? I was too, so were my uncles, father, grandfather…did you want an award? Was that supposed to make your opinion more credible?You should read what I said before you twist it around.

    @Jota- And I do not need anyone quoting scriptures to me like I am not every bit as god loving as you PROFESS to be. What you said was mean and hateful. Comparing me to a killer? Really? I have several bibles here. God made every living creature on this earth, he didn’t make any mistakes. Sorry your so full of hatred.

    By the way I find a play like that repulsive, and you judge others based on a few bad people. I guess I could see how that happens based on how some so called Christians treated me on here.

    John 13:34 “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.”

    I follow that command, more people should try it. And before you attack people for having an opinion- think about how you MAY be a hypocrite. I am a conservative GAY Christian who loves God. And as they say, if you can’t say anything nice…

      Jesus is not only the example, He is the Word .. He is God.

      He did not just give a “new command” .. He also said to many (and to all now) “Go and sin no more.” He also said that “If you love me, keep my commandments.” (That is plural, not just a single command or selected commands.)

      Only God can really say what your relationship is with Him. Others cannot .. even you cannot (because the heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked.) So I pray you will search that out from the only place you can (prayer and Scripture.)

      sfm61350,
      You claim to love God, yet you disobey his word and disagree with his statements. Jesus said if you loved him you would keep his commandments and also said why call him lord if you don’t do what he says. You might have a stack of Bibles and claim to be a “conservative God-loving Christian”, but your fruits don’t exhibit that. You should pick up one of your Bibles and read 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 and understand that God made it clear that homosexuals would NOT inherit the kingdom of God. So IF you contend that you “were born that way”, you are calling God a liar because he didn’t make you a homosexual just so he could keep you out of the kingdom (send you to hell).

      @Jota- And I do not need anyone quoting scriptures to me like I am not every bit as god loving as you PROFESS to be. What you said was mean and hateful. Comparing me to a killer? Really? I have several bibles here. God made every living creature on this earth, he didn’t make any mistakes. Sorry your so full of hatred. – sfm61350

      You certainly do have a gift at twisting things around so you can then making this all about you and then play the victim

      To emphasis the obvious, if you claim birth is a justification for your condition, how is it only you get to claim it?

      And I did not profess to be god loving, this is some thing you imagine, because in doing so is error

      Who ever I am, or not, will do nothing to change the truth

      My obligation, as is yours, to know it

      As for this
      “God made every living creature on this earth, he didn’t make any mistakes”

      Num 23:19 God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?

      The problem is not with G-d

    @ Gramma – “Practicing homosexuality is a choice” – But being homosexual IS NOT a choice Grandma. No more than a person can choose the color of their eyes or hair.

    @vickimarie- Let’s not bring shame to the Name of our Messiah by embracing that which He calls evil.” – I agree HATRED is evil. I don’t live in shame, nor should you. I am proud of the way GOD made me. I help others, contribute to food drives, give money to those in need. And guess what I am GAY.

    @cre8tion- “Aren’t there any gays out there who oppose what their extremist-kind are doing” – Yes I do NOT like what I read about this play. It was nasty, horrible and mean. But I did not like anyone telling me that I do not know or love God, simply because I am the way he made me. We should realize there are extremist Muslims, Christians, Gays, straights. Be honest it turns people away. I oppose being treated like I am any less God loving or religious, that simply is absurd.I care for a sick neighbor with cancer, run errands for elderly women in the neighborhood, I pray for healing for them. I never asked to be gay, some have it wrong, it is not a choice. And not all of us behave badly, I am a conservative, GOD LOVING gay man, with a big heart full of love for others.

      it may not be a choice, but acting upon it is. just because you and many others have embraced a sin, can not change the fact that it is a sin. It is natural for me to love food and it would be easy for me to be overweight, but the fact that I have desires to indulge does not make overeating or being overweight right. I am temped to do wrong – I abstain. You have been tempted to do wrong – you embrace.

      I refere only to homosexuality. It sounds like you are a lovely person. I am certain that you do much good. That however, can not erase the fact that in at least one aspect in life you are living in contrary to gods commandments.

      I am not perfect, and I realize that Same sex attraction is an extremely difficult temptation to control, however, god gives no commandments to his children that are too great to be kept.

      By fixating on the “gay” issue, you are missing the point. It was not CONSERVATIVES who chose to use gay characters in this blasphemous creation. Why do you think the author picked gay? Because he thought that would make the play even MORE offensive, and he obviously wanted maximum offensiveness–it was his whole reason for writing the damned thing. Is ANY of you idiots questioning why he made that particular “creative” choice? Does this not display a tiny bit of bias on his part, that “gay” was the most evil and offensive thing he could think of to replace the God of the Bible?

      WAKE UP! Stop defending this ******* and just admit that he did what he did to attack Christians and make the Christian kids in the school feel bad about what they had been taught by their parents. Isn’t THAT a noble motive–and you are going to DEFEND him for persecuting little kids? He sure advanced the “gay” cause a lot with this little stunt, didn’t he?

      Why is it that Number One Liberal rule is “Thou shalt NEVER offend ANYONE.”, except if they are Christian–and then PILE IT ON. Isn’t that just a wee bit inconsistent and HYPOCRITICAL? Why can’t you idiot liberals just have the guts to come right out and admit you HATE God and you HATE Christians (following your wonderful leader, Obama, no doubt) and not insist on wrapping your bigotry in some kind of saintly “tolerance” campaign and acting as though you’re advancing and defending the cause of freedom. I’ll say it again, as I have many times before–liberals are INSANE and now the lunatics are in charge of the asylum and just having a merry old time BURNING IT DOWN.

    While the play appears to be done in very poor taste, and perhaps even with an effort to offend or target for the purpose of insighting…. being gay has nothing to do with being Christian or any other religion, nor does one’s religion or faith have anything to being gay. They are totally seperate issues, both deserving to be respected and accepted as a part of personal freedom….and not pushed by one on another.

      Since when does being gay have to be respected? there is a difference between tolerance and tolerate. I can still associate with, be kind to and respect a person that is gay. However, homosexuality in and of itself is an abomination according to true christian beliefs and the laws of nature. Freedom is to be respected, not deviant behavior.

      “Tolerance is a virtue much needed in our turbulent world. But we must recognize that there is a difference between tolerance and tolerate. Your gracious tolerance for an individual does not grant him or her license to do wrong, nor does your tolerance obligate you to tolerate his or her misdeed. That distinction is fundamental to an understanding of this vital virtue.” Russell M Nelson

      Can you imagine if a school, paid for by taxpayers, had a play that portrayed the Christian and Jewish beliefs? The ACLU, atheists, ultra-liberals, liberal gays, etc. would sue in court before you could say “jack Robinson,” and the play would never be put on. 84-86% of Americans profess to be religious and believe in God, yet we are allowing a small minority to dictate the rules. When our founders said there should be separation of church they meant that the state could not require people to belong to a national church like the English at that time had to belong to the Church of England. People came here from England and other countries to have freedom of religion or not to have religion at all; but most were religious and had many different denominations throughout the country.

      Flash to slok98 — unless you liberals have invented a new form of thought control (I’m sure they are busily TRYING to do so, because they so LOVE to meddle in other people’s affairs, and that is so HARD to do when people’s minds aren’t right, er, or LEFT, as in this case), you can pass all the gay marriage, pro-gay legislation you want, but you can’t force people to RESPECT you–and if THIS ******* “playwright” is any example of what we can expect once you have everything you want, well, maybe you can understand why people are a little hesitant to embrace your cause. The majority of us do not WANT the kind of “anything goes, sex with animals OUTRAGEOUS” society he portrays in this play–and if that is what you DEMAND we ACCEPT, sorry, but no can do. Gay Pride parades where outrageous QUEENS prance down the street wearing dildoes and peacock feathers don’t help your cause either. Do THAT one day, then the next day try to convince everybody you’re “just plain folks” like everybody else. Does THAT seem like normal behavior to you? You don’t see heterosexuals parading in the streets bragging that they only have sex with the opposite sex, do you? Just SHUT UP, already about who or what you want to have sex with, and you;ll be a LOT better off. This “in your face” **** only breeds resistance and resentment.

If anyone still doubts that the rabid homosexual agenda is battling for the hearts and minds of our children, wonder no more. If you or I would stop a child on the street and show them pictures of what is depicted in this play we would be arrested on the spot, and rightfully so. (Hey, little boy, want to see a picture of a lady having sex with a bunny?) Kind of makes you wonder where the SPCA is in all of this. Do animals get a choice whether or not they are going to have sex with a pervert? Radical homosexuals get a pass, not only on common decency, but also on legality. Why is that? Because they shout the loudest and have bullied people into buying this political correctness ****. Do you know what should be politically correct?

    @bowieknife- Which “God” do you believe in?

    I believe in the creator of heaven and earth, and every living being. I believe in the God that gave the commandment to:

    “Love one another”
    I believe in the God that said
    “Judge not, that ye be not judged.”,
    I believe in the God that said:

    “Finally, be ye all of one mind, having COMPASSION of one another, LOVE as brethren, be pitiful, be COURTEOUS, Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing.For he that will love life, and see good days, let him REFRAIN his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile:Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him SEEK PEACE, and ensue it.”

    I believe in the God that said: “Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.”

    I believe in the God that said: “I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me.”

    Is your God, that God Bowieknife? Just checking…

    God Bless all of you, and may you see the danger in labels. Judge a man by the content of his heart, not by a bad stereotype. The only one really fit to ever Judge is God, not people. Love one another :) Simplest lesson I learned from God.

      sfm61350, it seems that you use ONLY the scriptures that try to justify your opinions and lifestyle. No one on this discussion has stated that they do not love you, but love isn’t an excuse to do what you want and expect others to accept it when they know it is wrong because the one true God who IS love said it was wrong. He also loves you, but he will not tolerate your disobedience, and unless you repent of it, you will not inherit the kingdom of God. So you actually do have a choice. But because other people try to warn you doesn’t mean they don’t love you or hate you. God said if we don’t warn the wicked and they die in their sins, their blood would be on our hands. So when you die in your sins, your blood will be on YOUR hands because several people have tried to warn you. That warning does not come from hatred or intolerance, it simply comes because God said homosexuality was wickedness (abomination). If you don’t believe that, don’t expect people to accept your opinion while accusing them of hating you.

I read this site often as I do many others; many of them different in their views from this one. I look at life from a wide angled view. Many on this site profess to be patriotic and christian but spew hate and very narrow minded views. You are right; we all have a right to our opinions but if yours is different; on this site; it will not be received well. The information reported here is true (and not distorted); I am as replused as you and the reported. It drives me crazy when the bible is used to support such narrow minded views. My bible and my guidebook has been used throughout history in this country; slavery, to suppress women and so on. And here’s a question; conservative or otherwise; why is the President always the root of all evil? You must consider the source of these views. You can be Gay and Conservative. Conservative does not mean that you have to believe what others believe. I have never responded to anything on this site but I felt compelled today to do so after reading your post. Many (most) of the posts on this site or insulting and most often narrow minded. GOD IS LOVE and will ALWAYS BE.

      You know what I find narrow minded and insulting? It’s the attitude of “gays” that they must come onto conservative websites and say that we’re narrow minded and insulting. I’ve found most of the people on GOPUSA to be very open-minded. Homosexuals were the first to start calling names and call us haters because we don’t believe in “gay marriage”.

      You know what? I don’t have to agree with your lifestyle! We do have the first amendment right to speak in this country. For all of recorded history in this world, marriage has been defined as being between a man and a woman but recently we’re told it can be between anyone. That way lies chaos. It will tear down our country and civilization because all boundaries are down. You know polygamy, polyandry, polyamory and all the various practices are coming right on the heels of gay “marriage”.

      Practically everything I see Liberals doing is aimed at doing just that thing. They want to keep children ignorant and dependent on the government for everything. All of our traditions must go. Women are in the streets with fake vaginas around their necks which aren’t even replicas of vaginas so apparently they don’t know their bodies as well as they think they do.

      Gays are in parades doing the most disgusting things in front of, as is said, God and everyone. Our children are being forced to endure indoctrination by “educators” about sex and what I consider unnatural sex. That is not right. But, of course, right only means “extremist in today’s lexicon.

      We’ve been pushed to the edge with Obamacare, spending out of sight, deficit and debt beyond belief, higher and higher taxes, zooming costs on energy and food and homosexuals want us to focus on their problems and be nice even when they insist on being nasty and whiny in their initial posts on a conservative website.

      bre1028, actually the only opinion that matters is God’s opinion, and he is “very narrow minded” in his view of homosexuality. So if you think my disapproval of homosexuality is “spewing hate”, take that up with God because I am believing what he said rather than what man says.

See, in their world, the ONLY people who are actually entitled to exercise Free Speech and express an opinion are OTHER liberals whose opinions are the same as theirs.

    Why do some people have to mock others opinions to make theirs known? That’s the insulting part. I have no problem with someone being gay. I know nothing about his/her demons. The Bible does say its a sin, but also says we are forgiven for our sins. I have no problem with gays wanting to have the same rights as a married couple. Just don’t call it marriage. I believe the Bible implies that is reserved for a man and a woman. Webster and all other dictionaries define it as, ” the state of being united to a person of the opposite sex as husband or wife in a consensual and contractual relationship recognized by law.”

      “I have no problem with gays wanting to have the same rights as a married couple” – fabrizio

      Well, that would depend upon how a person acquired a right

      And I would argue it is impossible for two different things to have the same rights because rights are like properties on the Periodic Table, inherent to the thing.

      Of course, if you believe they are dispensed by government than I would ask, not by what rational bases, but how a government can continue to exist which is so inconsistent and contradictory with the use of its words all meaning is lost in what it says by saying two different things are the same thing

      Maybe, it would be more clear if I ask why don’t you have the same rights as the President of the United States?

      Isn’t that a little unfair?

      The answer, the reason the person who occupies the office has those rights is because those are the rights the office needs to be

      Same with marriage

      Homosexual couples have no purpose and have no rights from that purpose

      But we all can pretend to be compassionate, caring and not hurt their feeling because they are unwilling to face reality

    Sin is Sin – and we are all guilty of something sinful.Maybe we should all be reminded of what JESUS had to endure to pay for all our sins during this Easter season.

      You are right sin is sin but when people don’t think what they are doing is sin even if it says so in the bible that’s the difference homosexuality is Christians need to stop trying to say it is ok to be gay and not a sin

      “I’m gay” – sfm61350

      How do you know?

      If a male is transgender and believes he is female, but likes women is he a lesbian?

      And what happens if the woman is transgender and thinks she is a man?

      And yet, from all this we need to change our laws so they can be as subject to whim as those whom claim the need to change.

      What is the definition of GAY?

      sfm, you keep saying that. “I’m gay and love God and am a conservative and a member of this site.” What’s that supposed to be saying? There are BO employees that are members of this site, for crying out load, so that doesn’t mean a whole lot. Conservative? I was waiting for the Bible quote you finally gave. I had real suspicions after your first Bible quote, your second one pretty much hosed you. You just gave the two quotes, usually the only “quotes”, the lefty libtards always throw out there, even though they have the wrong interpretation to them. You are a Christian? Like the good Rev. Wright? I haven’t seen in even one of your comments anything refering to Jesus. That’s kinda strange. He is the Christian Rock! And if you, being a Christian, know that there is a condition to Christ’s forgiveness, you at least haven’t acknowledged it here anyplace, even once. Its not automatic, you know. Do you know what those conditions are? I hope so, because just “lovin’ God” isn’t going to get you in to see Him.

    Yes God is love he tells us as Christians to love every one including our enemies. However I believe we must see the other side of God. When Jesus told the woman caught in adultery “go and sin no more ” he loved the woman but held her accountable for her sin! But praise God if we confess our sin he cleanses us from all ungodliness 1john 1:9

    Up yours Broadway! A few years ago, here in San Antonio, I took my young teenage daughter to a musical theatre (off Broadway) production at the ornate Majestic. The play was Spelling Bee, and was very good, until, and in front of, parents with their kids, Drama teachers with their students, and the rest of us stalwart souls, they had a principal player sing a song about Masturbation. Of course the lyric had to be prefaced by the desire of the character with a heart felt confession of the lust for (atleast) a girl, who was the sister of a contestant sitting next to him on the bleacher. Of all the characters they chose for this it was the Boy Scout with uniform, merit badges and all.

    The article that is written is not about the gay community not believing in God, it is about those in the gay community and liberals who say they don’t believe in God and/or claim separate God and the state. But, they want to take every advantage of freedom of speech to bring God into the schools to mock Him. Basically these groups want their cake and eat it too, that is why you see such a backlash of people going after the gay and liberal people

    If there was true equality we would not see these issues, but when these groups want not just tolerance of their life style, but full acceptance then they will not settle until all have done so. They don’t want “NO” for an answer.

      Hmmm, sorry I don’t agree with your interpretation. I found both the act of the play and the article offensive. No one should trash God period, and no one should sit in judgment of others. Gay does not mean you can’t love God, sorry simply not true.

    The purpose of this comment section was to address the play, not a forum to debate the Gay and Straight lifestyles. (not gay or Christian) For either lifestyle, what are our concerns about producing a play that is obviously hurtful and hostile (to any religious belief).

    For instance,
    Is this a gay-majority school?

    Were non-gays required to participate as part of their grade?

    Do the people on this forum, gay or straight, feel like this was an appropriate production for high school students?

    Would it be acceptable to attack those of another faith, Islam, Hindu, Rosecrucion, Native American Spiritually,etc, in a play such as this, by purposefully slamming the important tenets of their religions?

    How would we feel about our own child participating in such a hateful production. Would we allow it?

    Would we speak with the principal or director regarding the play….for or against it. I

    I’m sure there are other questions and thoughts that could be addressed.

    I’m also sure that it would be hard to keep the issue of the rights and wrongs of lifestyles out of the discussion but does nothing for understanding what others think about the topic here….the production.

    Certainly all involved in the play and on this forum have the First Amendment right to say what they wish.

    But there comes a point that MOST civilized and decent people or groups voluntarily place a limit on themselves when it comes to being hurtful and hateful. This applies to the best of us, not the worst of us.

    It is my personal opinion that each of us should want to be part of the “best” and demonstrate that choice in our lives. We should be willing to verbally admit that we don’t agree or support the extremists (of all sides)who don’t represent our particular beliefs. By separating ourselves from the extreme fringe, I think all of us can have a better dialog.

    In reading comments, if I see that someone is headed in hateful or extreme dialog, I skip that comment and move on to one more productive.

    I purposefully have not shared with you my lifestyle..gay or straight. Because when discussing the appropriateness of this production it doesn’t really matter to me.

      “The purpose of this comment section was to address the play, not a forum to debate the Gay and Straight lifestyles”

      figgy, if you will notice, the very first post in the comments section hijacked the discussion and moved it directly to the homosexual issue. Then when others joined the discussion, the usual attacks such as “hateful” started appearing.

      The play is obviously anti-Christian and people rant against it, but the underlying aspect of this type of blasphemy is simply Satan attacking Christianity in every way he can because he knows his time is short. The same way he uses this play to attack Christian principles, he also uses social issues such as homosexuality, same-sex marriage, and many other scheme to attack Christian beliefs. Satan’s deception has led so many people astray by fostering doubt and unbelief. . .”Did God really say. . .”.

      To Figgy: Most of us here would agree with what you say as to how appropriate this material was–and it fails on most counts: It is quite CLEARLY an attack on somebody else’s faith, especially given the timing to present this during the week of the highest “holy week” in the Christian religion. How about if we put on a play portraying Mohammed or Allah as an advocate of bestiality who has a secret passion for PIGS, and we time it to be performed during Ramadan. Would that be OK? I’m sure it would NOT according to liberals, yet they see no problem with THIS travesty–simply because it is denigrating Christianity, which they apparently view as anathema at best.

      It is NOT appropriate for teenagers in high school, and I sure hope NONE of them were “forced” to take roles to get a grade. And yes, the principle should be notified in NO UNCERTAIN TERMS that this kind of avante gard **** is NOT appropriate to be performed or VIEWED by under-aged teens. As another poster observed, if you went out on the streets and showed a picture to an under-aged teen of a woman trying to have sex with a rabbit, you’d be arrested as a sex offender–yet it’;s OK for THIS ******* to expose an entire SCHOOL to this filth in the name of “cultural diversity” or “tolerance” or whatever label the liberals are applying today?

The damned liberals are not even bothering to hide anymore how they have taken over the schools and are brainwashing our children with this “progressive liberal” ****. THIS, folks, is the reason DIRTBAGS like Obama are being elected. The young people who are now voting are products of schools like this one, who practice blatant religious persecution in the name of “freedom”. As they love to do, they call it something other than what it is, by turning the word “freedom” into some half-baked, obscene libertine license to be disgusting.

    The only comment I can add to this discussion, is that God gave us all free will.
    There are those who will inherit the Kingdom of God, and those who will not. Point being, we all have a choice of Heaven or Hell, and it is that choice, which we practice daily, and allows you to either believe in God, Jesus Christ, and Heaven, or to go your merry way, to the Doom of Hell, well described in the Bible, or to Heaven a place perfect, with no sickness, no sin, and ETERNAL peace.
    Hell is like falling into a active volcano, and being burnt, feeling the pain, but never being consumed, for Eternity. If you have never read the Bible, I implore you to do so, and find your way to Jesus Christ, Forgiveness of your sins, and Eternity in the Kingdom of God.

    The thing which bugs we worst, is the fact that this type of play can be done in School, but just try doing a Christian one, or even allow a Christian group to form. This would definitely bring extreme criticism, even from BHO.

      Similar thing happened at Florida Atlantic University, where the college instructor told students to write “Jesus” on a piece of paper and stomp on it. Who would condone that?

      reply to sfm61350:
      “the college instructor told students to write “Jesus” on a piece of paper and stomp on it. Who would condone that?”

      Sadly, a LOT of people would not only condone it, but would defend to the death the professor’s right to turn his classroom into an indoctrination center for radical left-wing garbage. They would condone it because we are now, apparently a society of IDIOTS and LUNATICS, incapable of setting standards for decency or anything ELSE.

      That’s the kind of society we live in now. It’s also the kind where anybody who objects to any idiotic, blasphemous or OBSCENE thing a liberal wants to do is labeled a “hater” or a “bigot” and shouted down by the mainstream media, who have, apparently become no more than official propaganda purveyors for the radical left.

    I taught for over 30 years in the California Community College System, and I had to visit another class where the Instructor used foul language, call the students names and used God’s name in vain, I asked the School about this behavior and was told they didn’t have a policy against it.
    If I would have spoken of God with reverence I would have been fired.
    Now the real question is how did we get to this point in time, and who is to blame??
    I guess we could blame the atheist, or the Muslim, or even the Homosexual for pushing this through Congress and the State and Local governments, and schools.
    But to be fair and honest we the supposed Christians and followers of God and His Son Jesus we must blame our selves for sitting on the sidelines and just watching it all happen and wonder when God will intervene and eliminate them.
    God gave each one of us our free agency and expects us to do what is right on our own for he says that a person who must be commanded in all things is a slothful servant.
    I presume all of you Christians know that Satan has power and is working over time to destroy us, and that he leads us to Hell little by little. Those of you who are old enough to remember TV in the beginning, did you hear bad language, see naked people and people having sex, or doing drugs or bloody murders, or single moms drunk and neglecting their children???
    No what you saw was good family values, and now what you see doesn’t shock you because these principles have been very slowly going away until now you are no longer shocked by bad language or nudity, that is how Satan works, so reads the scriptures daily, pray constantly, don’t watch R rated movies and stand up for your belief and defend your God. The problem is that the Christians believe that if they turn the other cheek God will take care of them; however, He says that you do all you can do and then and only then He will do the rest.
    Write you politicians and let them know you are offended by political correctness, and that you are no longer going top ride in the back of the bus. If they keep catering to the 20% then the 80% is going to vote them out of office and send them packing.
    Don’t be disrespectful but let the homosexuals know that you believe in the Bible and so you don’t support their choice of life style and that goes for adultery, drunks, drug addict and any person who is not following God’s commandments.
    And last but not lest remember “judge not so that ye shall not be judged” love thy neighbor as thy self.

You can be gay and love God, you can also be conservative. As a professed “educated” person, which I don’t doubt. I am sure you know “Satan” also works on Christians- fills them full of hate.

      sfm61350, the one who put them in the same category as adulterers and drunks is God himself, and repeating what He said is not “hate” OR “judgmental”.

      “Funny but I believe God is Love. I don’t judge you either.”

      I believe that you like most homosexuals use ONLY the Bible parts that try to deflect attention away from YOUR perversion. You talk about God’s love, but you won’t admit that God DESTROYED entire cities due to homosexual perversion. Wasn’t God LOVE when he did that? You continue to comment that God MADE you homosexual, but a God of love would not create anything that he says is an ABOMINATION to him. You continue to say that “God is love” and no one should “judge you”, then you judge others by calling them “hate-filled”. You also

      Throughout this entire discussion, people have pointed you to God’s word that tells you that homosexuality is a sin, that unrepentant homosexuals will not inherit the kingdom of God, yet you never discuss any of those verses because they don’t fit your opinion. You claim to be a Christian who loves God, but everything you have said points to the fact that you don’t even know God because you deny his word except for the verses you use to try to garner support for yourself.

      And you are NOT “gay”. By your own admission, you are homosexual or a sodomite and there is nothing GAY about that. You continue to state that you are a “gay, conservative Christian who loves God and is a member of this site”. I think the only truth in that statement is that you are a “member of this site’. When I compare what you say and what God says, I am reminded that “God is not a man that he should lie”.

    I don’t debate the gay/straight issue. I don’t know why some people are gay and some are not. What I object to is having any sexual agenda forced on our children, or anyone’s faith denigrated or mocked in public school. As for the argument that we should keep our noses out of people’s bedrooms, I am happy to oblige, but I want the same respect afforded to me. Keep your bedrooms out of my child’s school.

      @pwpmmp -
      I’d like to respectfully answer that. I was created out of love.
      I am a child of God, as are you. I am gay. I am a god loving conservative as well. I agree we should not be minding people’s bedroom activity (or in many cases lack of it). I have no “agenda” as many like to say. I am not pushing anything on to your children, or in the schools- by the way I pay taxes to support, though no children. But if I had a partner (I don’t by choice), I would want the same things that you and your spouse want. Nothing more, or less. And really, in all honesty it is not a choice to be gay. It is not a commentary on anyone’s character. I am active in the community, contribute time and money to worthy causes, help a neighbor who has cancer, help elderly with errands. I do MORE than many people straight or gay. I did no like the play the article spoke of, but even more as a member of this site, I did not like the gay=godless thing. They take a few bad examples and imply everyone is like that. It simply is not true. I am not here to make trouble, or convince others. I need no validation of others. I am simply me, some will accept me, others may not. I have no control over how they behave, just how I conduct myself. God Bless!

      We are constantly told some are born gay, but this absolutely defies the logic of evolutionary adaptation. If a segment of any population decide not to propagate, the traits represented in that segment have to become weaker and weaker from generation to generation until they become just another recessive link in our DNA makeup. Most humanoid behavior is learned and primate specialists discovered these facts decades ago when they studied the progeny of chimps separated for their mother and primate society at birth couldn’t socialize. I believe the Communist societies discovered the same phenomenon, but with human children.
