One time my denomination, which accepts gays, was having a convention in Kansas city back in 2001. The Westboro Baptist Church folks showed up with their "God Hates Fags" etc. signs to protest.

To annoy them several men (not even gay ones) held hands and skipped around in front of them.


They disgust me, and vaz is right they need to be ignored.

so according to news reports, the autopsy is inconclusive.

he was found face down in his bed, not on the floor, and he was cold. so he'd been dead for a bit. there were prescription pills. but in bottles. sleeping pills and anti-anxiety pills. apparently he also had pneumonia.

it wouldn't surprise me if there was some kind of strange toxic brew combined with an undiagnosed medical condition.

but this doesn't sound like a suicide, nor does it sound like a heroin OD.

but we'll see.

I agree, the comparison is interesting, but...

Brandon Lee, sadly, only got the chance to make 2 films (he died during the filming of the second one), but Heath had a pretty good run for about 10 years.

At least we got a chance to see Heath shine a number of times, but unfortunately, we didn't really get a chance to see Brandon's career go anywhere. Plus, Brandon died on the set of The Crow from a stunt gone wrong whereas Heath died alone in his apartment. Either way, both men's deaths were horrible. I was very sad when Brandon died because I was hoping he'd become a star like his father Bruce Lee.

and we need to use them to demonstrate that all homophobia -- whether it's blatantly hateful, or just nervous, "well, i don't agree with the lifestyle" -- is fundamentally absurd.

the latest...

Medical Examiner: Ledger Autopsy Inconclusive
Posted Jan 23rd 2008 10:35AM by TMZ Staff

An autopsy on Heath Ledger was inconclusive this morning, pending toxicology results.

The New York Medical Examiner's office tells TMZ it will take anywhere between ten days and two weeks to obtain test results. As TMZ first reported, the death appears to have been accidental.

Same here. I'm not usually too affected by celebrity deaths, but for some reason, this has me really rattled. I think it's because, on top of really admiring his work, I keep remembering that he was my age and it seems very possible that his death was caused by something as simple as him just wanting to be able to get some sleep and not anything reckless, desperate, or stupid like many early deaths (celebrity or otherwise) are. I don't know why exactly, but it feels almost like a wake-up call of sorts.

Personally, I think it's one of the most disgusting things I've ever seen. Radical Christianity is just as bad as radical anything else. I don't know how you can preach love out of one side of your mouth and spew hate out the other. Obviously, it's absolutely repulsive, but unfortunately it's an actual flyer.
Yeah, that's definitely sick, but I must say that I find it funny that this flyer was made without knowledge that Ledger was NOT gay. Come on, guys, it's called acting. You think he's in hell, OK, but at least base your thoughts on something he's actually done, not some made up shit to further your agenda.

Same here with the age. It's so different when it's an older celebrity that passes away. When it is someone your own age it really shakes you up .

I agree with Irvine that there is a possibility that there was a medical condition that could have caused his untimely death. If the final results should show otherwise it won't change my opinion of Heath. What he did in his private life was his own business. Wish he had the time to show more of his amazing acting skills.

That´s what I wanted to point out. It´d be great if they were smart enough to tell the difference between the character and the actor.
