JAMES’ JOURNAL (Entry 30)

Blog_KD JournalFebruary 26

This is a long ass post. You have Pinky to blame for that one, since he asked for my spot last Sunday. Happy reading.

I’ve started work in Lagos. As I write this, I am there looking at all the weird machines that will hopefully become familiar with time.

Working – no, learning here is dull. My supervisor does a lot of paper work where she has to record her findings and stamp stuff. Whenever I notice she’s doing a test however, I go to meet her and start asking questions. She’s never called me to see anything so far. She’s a nice lady, she seems easy to get along with.

There’s another IT student who schools in the polytechnic of my city, and she’s pretty friendly. We got talking and she asked what church I attend, and I told her I go to church frequently when I’m at home but hardly when I’m in school. She then went on to call me a “big boy” which I took as sarcasm. Whatever… I genuinely enjoy going to the church in my hometown. I feel some semblance of safety there, and what they teach, I understand. I may not agree with them all the time but I understand. Continue reading

“Who am I to judge gays for their sins, if they have sins?” – Archbishop of Canterbury

_65694542_65694541The Archbishop of Canterbury has claimed it is not up to him to judge gay people for their “sins”.

Archbishop Justin Welby made the comments while visiting St Alban’s Academy in Highgate.

Of his views on sexuality, he told the Birmingham Mail: “I’m listening very, very closely to try to discern what the spirit of God is trying to tell us.”

Echoing comments from the Pope – who expressed a similar sentiment in 2013 – he said: “I see my own selfishness and weakness and think, who am I judge them for their sins, if they have sins. We shouldn’t demonise and dismiss and hate each other as that is so dangerous.” Continue reading

Viral Video Sensation Andrew Caldwell Admits “I Still Have Desires” For ‘Mens’

hqdefault4You may remember Andrew Caldwell from the viral video released last November in which he testified before a roomful of hundreds people that he had been delivered from homosexuality.

“I’m not gay no more!” the 21-year-old hollered over a gospel choir. “I am delivered! I DON’T LIKE MENS NO MORE!”

Now, the 21-year-old deliveree says he’d like to put that whole embarrassing incident behind him.

“I did not want to go viral,” Caldwell said in a new interview with NBC12. “I did not expect that to go viral. I did not want to get up there and just say anything and look crazy in front of thousands of people. I went up there because I needed prayer that day. I needed so much prayer.”

Caldwell says that his bombastic response was the result of feeling pressured by others on stage. He claims that the person who spoke right before him called gay people “sissies” and suggested they should “bleed from their butts.”

“They think that they can preach the homosexuals away in the Church of God in Christ,” said Caldwell. “And you can’t.” Continue reading

Let’s Discuss…About Open Relationships

Gay LoveIt’s a question of which is better: an exclusive relationship or an open one. Sounds like a no-brainer, right? The answer is pretty obvious. I mean, who wants to share his man with another?

I was having a dialogue with a good friend of mine on the issue of gay relationships, and he expressed an opinion on this, which I’d like to share with y’all. Read below:

‘Seriously, think about it. Exclusive relationships, especially in the gaybourhood, even more especially in Nigeria, on the average, have a shelf life of two months. If you have on the very rare occasion dated someone EXCLUSIVELY for a year, you become a miracle.

‘Open relationships on the other hand, at least the few ones I know of, strangely last longer than the exclusive ones. Think about it. I mean, it should not be! Yet, it is! Continue reading

Well, It Seems Zachary Quinto Has Joined The Gay Bachelors Anonymous

Actor Zachary Quinto arrives for the LosWhere’s Dennis, president of the Gay Bachelors Anonymous? Zachary Quinto would like validation of his membership card.

In a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, actor Zachary Quinto opened up about his feelings on love and marriage. And guess what? He’s not the marrying type.

“I personally am not a huge fanatic of marriage,” the 37-year-old rabble rouser said. “Commitment and relationships are a very individual thing, and I don’t stand to tell other people what to do or who to do it with, but for me, love is defined by two people in an intimate and personal way, and superimposing an institution on that isn’t necessarily, for me, the most exciting idea.”

But don’t think that means he’s not all for marriage equality. He is. He just doesn’t want to get gay married himself. Continue reading

SUITS AND TIES (Part 4)

*

The whole world goes on and on about love. Poets spend their lives writing about it. Everyone thinks it’s the most wonderful thing. But when you mention two guys in love, they forget all that and freak out.

Mark A. Roeder said that, and my co-workers are a classic example of a people who freak out when the contemplation of gay people becomes an issue at work. They don’t go bat-shit crazy. They simply spout lots of vitriol, most of it fed by their ignorance and blind loathing.

Sick, cursed, possessed by demonic spirits…

How can a normal person put his thing inside someone else’s ass…

Useless people, going about bribing famous people to say they’re gay…

Yes. It’s incredible, but my co-workers actually believe that part of the LGBT activism is to pay celebrities an unspecified amount of money, or cut deals with them, so that they can claim to be out and proud in order to influence the public to accept or tolerate homosexuality. One of my female colleagues claims to still be heartbroken over and disbelieving of Wentworth Miller’s coming out. To her, the Prison Break star is just too good-looking not to fancy women. Apparently, the gay movement is either highly manipulative or quite influential enough to convince ‘heterosexual’ celebrities to take on the risk of faking their gayness for our cause.
