Pastor Prays For Caitlyn Jenner’s Heart To Be Ripped From Her Chest

QueertyImagePastor Steven Anderson, who famously predicted an “AIDS-free Christmas” if only all LGBT people in America were put to death (Read HERE), is at it again. This time he’s calling for Caitlyn Jenner‘s heart to be ripped from her chest.

While standing on his soapbox before members of the Faithful World Baptist Church in Tempe, Arizona, the father of eight unleashed on 65-year-old Jenner, whom he admits he had never even heard of until last week but who he now despises “with a perfect hated.”

First, Anderson called Jenner “wicked” and a “trans freak” who is being “crammed down the throat” of “literally hundreds of millions of people” and who therefore deserves to “die.”

Lovely Christian sentiment. Continue reading

Actress Alice Eve branded a bigot over rant against Bruce Jenner

Screenshot - 4_28_2015 , 10_32_00 AMThere have been declarations of support from across the world for Bruce Jenner, the former Olympic champion and stepfather of reality TV star Kim Kardashian, following his announcement that he thinks of himself as a woman after beginning gender reassignment treatment.

But Star Trek actress Alice Eve has boldly gone where few public figures have gone before, by wading into transgender politics. She provoked a furore by taking umbrage with decathlon gold medalist Jenner’s declaration that ‘for all intents and purposes’ he is a woman.

‘Nope,’ she wrote on her Instagram page. ‘If you were a woman, no one would have heard of you because women can’t compete in the decathlon. You wouldn’t be a hero. You would be a frustrated young athlete who wasn’t given a chance. Continue reading

Michael-Lucas-by-Christopher-Logan4This piece, titled ‘Where Is The Outrage For Gays Killed By ISIS?’ and originally published on out.com, was written by Michael Lucas, the creator of Lucas Entertainment, one of the largest studios producing all-male erotica.

He asks: where are the celebrities, LGBT leaders, and progressive politicians who decried Dolce & Gabbana’s slights, yet remain silent over ISIS murders of gay men in the name of Islam?

Read below.

The backlash against Dolce and Gabbana last week was immediate, brutal, and covered by news outlets from The New York Times to The Advocate to E! Online.

The gay fashion icons had made some decidedly unfashionable remarks about same sex marriage and gay parenting, including “The only family is the traditional one,” along with a reference to “synthetic” children. Continue reading

6. ASKING GAY PEOPLE TO DENY THEIR NATURAL SEXUAL ORIENTATION IS DESTRUCTIVE. Recall, homosexual orientation is no more a “behavior” than is heterosexual attraction.  Both are orientations, innate attractions. Reparative therapy (Exodus-type programs that offer results that take away “unwanted sexual attractions” or allude to a gay-to-straight conversion) treats homosexuality as if it were a “behavior” akin to other life choices like drug and alcohol usage, adultery, cheating and lying.

You would expect that the elimination of bad behaviors would result in life benefits.  However, if you force a gay person to “not be gay,” loneliness, depression, isolation and shame can result.

Some gay people do make a choice to live celibate lives.  This is called “Side B” for gay Christians; they come to a personal conviction that God is calling them to be celibate. This is not the same as the imposition of celibacy by an outsider for acceptance before God. Celibacy does not take away attraction; it only means a person is not engaging in sex. A celibate straight person is not “no longer straight” simply because they are not being sexual.  Likewise, a celibate gay person is not “no longer gay” simply because they are not being sexual.

Ten Things The Christian Learned About Gay People in Ten Years

7c623122“God, is the truth as I understand it about being gay and Christian Your truth?”

Written by Kathy, and originally published on canyonwalkerconnections.com

In 2001, if you had asked me, “Kathy, can you be gay and Christian?”  I would have hedged a bit and fallen on the side of “No”.  I did not have any close relationships with gay people nor had I ever studied the issue in the Bible.  I did not even know one gay Christian that I knew of.  It was from this paradigm that I formulated my opinions about the lives of gay people and made assumptions about their status with God.  All that changed when I met Netto on a hiking trail.  It is now ten years later and I offer ten things that I wish straight people, especially Christians, knew about gay people.

People who do not understand the views of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people are not all bigots; and people who are fully affirming in their support of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people are not all heretics.  This conversation often is relegated to love and hate, right and wrong, but there is a wide expanse between the two sides.  And that middle group is, for the most part, silent.  You are the ones to whom I am offering these insights, from experience, knowledge, study, relationship and with a genuine interest in engaging the too-often-silent middle.

With Bible in hand and in spirit, an open mind and heart and a willingness to listen to people, I entered the conversation that often brings out the worst in people.  I hope to inspire you to move and to speak up with the Jesus-voice inside you. Continue reading
