That sounds about right. Seriously, I just wish I had all day to sit here and worry about such things, but nah, I'm too busy going out and enjoying myself and having some sembelance of a life.

I assume, then, that the state that guy lives in must be an absolutely perfect place (with the exception of that "homosexual agenda"......seriously, where do these lame phrases come up?)...must be no violence or drug problems or anything along that line if this is all he's spending his time worrying about, eh?

Anywho, seen gay people on TV, read about them in articles and stuff, and yet am still straight. Hasn't affected me in the slightest (and if it did, so what?).

i say, "goddamn!!!" the christian coalition is quick to identify the homosexual agenda, and just when we thought we were being all clever moving the monthly meetings from San Francisco out to Key West (due to all the unpleasant rain in SF, it frizzes our hair, you know).

look at their newest piece of detective work:

Shrek character is latest target of anti-gay religious group

Mon Feb 21,12:15 PM ET

JOHN MCKAY

TORONTO (CP) - Uh-oh!



That other jolly green giant could be in trouble.


Shrek 2 is the latest animated film title to be "outed" by Christian fundamentalists in the U.S.


On its website the Traditional Values Coalition (news - web sites) is warning parents about the cross-dressing and transgender themes contained in the hit DreamWorks feature, now on DVD.


"Shrek 2 is billed as harmless entertainment but contains subtle sexual messages," says the coalition, which describes itself as a grassroots inter-denominational lobby with more than 43,000 member churches.


"Parents who are thinking about taking their children to see Shrek 2 may wish to consider the following."


The article then proceeds to describe one of the characters, an "evil" bartender (voiced by Larry King) who is a male-to-female transgender in transition and who expresses a sexual desire for Prince Charming.


In another identified scene, Shrek and Donkey need rescuing from a dungeon by Pinocchio and his nose, which is made to extend as an escape bridge by getting the wooden boy to lie about not wearing women's underwear.


The TVC report, A Gender Identity Disorder Goes Mainstream', raps DreamWorks for helping to promote crossdressing and transgenderism.


But Charles Keil, a film studies professor at the University of Toronto, says transgendered groups might also have reason to complain about being parodied.


"You have an image within a comic context that could be read either way," says Keil, who adds quickly that such humour is designed for parents anyway and goes way above the heads of the children in the audience.


"If the kids don't get it, it doesn't really matter."


Keil says the whole idea behind the Shrek movies is a general message of tolerance - that outward appearances don't matter and that it's what's underneath that counts - and such complaints defeat that larger, more important message.


"Targeting minuscule elements within a much larger work and then trying to extract from that some kind of argument that borders on the paranoid is really misconstruing the general aim of this entertainment."


So far, the Coalition's gaydar doesn't seem to have picked up on DreamWorks' Shark Tale, in which a shark mafioso, voiced by Robert DeNiro, must come to terms with the fact he has a vegetarian son who likes to dress up as a dolphin.


But the Shrek accusation follows hot on the heels of other cases of animated characters being accused of infiltrating the minds of America's children with pro-gay messages, much to the detriment of traditional family values.


Recently, PBS was upbraided by the group Focus on the Family - and supported by the U.S. secretary of education no less - for an episode of the cartoon series Postcards From Buster, in which Buster the rabbit encounters a couple of kids with lesbian parents.





Christian activists have also targeted SpongeBob SquarePants, Barney the dinosaur and Sesame Street's Bert & Ernie as children's characters who are conduits for a soft-on-gays message.

Just last month, the American Family Association took exception to the makers of a new video being distributed to thousands of U.S. elementary schools and which the organization said used characters like SpongeBob and Barney to indoctrinate children into a homosexual lifestyle.

The video is designed to coincide with National We Are Family Day in March. But what upset the AFA in particular is the We Are Family Foundation's website and a tolerance-for-diversity pledge (including sexual orientation) that children and others are asked to sign there.

It seems all of this began back in 1999 when Rev. Jerry Falwell described that purse-toting Teletubby, Tinky Winky, as a gay role model.

One wonders how far back critics could go, though, in seeing pro-homosexual context in cartoons. Remember when shotgun-toting hunter Elmer Fudd realized Bugs Bunny was in drag? He was furious, but only because he saw Bugs's cotton tail and learned he was a rabbit in disguise.

"There's all sorts of things going on in those cartoons that are pretty suggestive," concedes Keil. "But (the kids) are laughing at the pratfalls, the funny voices, the very basic humour.

"Kids at that age don't even have pre-formed notions of sexuality."

In the recent SpongeBob movie, there is a scene in which the oddball undersea character suddenly pops up in his neighbour's shower (and quickly gets the boot). It's also been pointed out that he holds hands with a pink friend and gets boating lessons from a teacher called Mr. Puff. Creator Stephen Hillenburg assured the Wall Street Journal that the sponge-man was not gay but that the show had become a gay community favourite because of the tolerant attitude displayed by the show's characters.

"Everybody is different and the show embraces that," Hillenburg said. "I always think of them as being somewhat asexual."

Keil wonders what these religious groups would accomplish if they managed to get a law passed banning any representation of untoward social behaviour in children's entertainment.

"It would still be there covertly," he argues. "What would these groups see as the ideal state of affairs?"

*Reads Irvine's article*

*Head drops down on desk, sighs*

I try and remain as optimistic about the human race as I possibly can, but these people are really testing my optimism...

Three words for that group: Get. A. Life.

IN BRIEF / MONTANA
Hate Crime Protection for Gays Is Rejected
From Times Wire Reports

February 22, 2005

The state House of Representatives killed a bill that would have extended a hate crimes law to protect gays.

The bill would have made it a crime to target people based on such factors as age, economic condition, disability, gender or sexual orientation. It was rejected, 54 to 46.

Republicans, who accounted for all but five of the opponents, argued that the bill would stifle speech and could prevent clergy from speaking out against homosexuality in their sermons.

Protecting HATE speech from the pulpit.

Isn't that part of separation of church and state? Government doesn't step inside religion and religion doesn't step inside government?

Senate endorses gay rights proposal

Articles / Civil Liberties
Date: Feb 17, 2005 - 09:09 AM
By ALLISON FARRELL
Lee State Bureau

HELENA - Gay rights advocates jumped for joy outside the Senate Wednesday after the body endorsed a bill that would prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation.

Senate Bill 199, sponsored by Sen. Ken Toole, D-Helena, was approved by the Senate on a preliminary 27-23 vote, mostly along party lines. If the bill clears its final vote, it will face a tougher battle in the House, where the party split is 50-50.

The bill seeks to add sexual orientation as a protected class under the Montana Human Rights Act. The act prohibits discrimination based on race, national origin, religion, gender, familial status, disabilities, creed, marital status and age.

"I think this is about equality," said Sen. Jesse Laslovich, D-Anaconda, during the debate. "I think it's appropriate and incumbent on this body to say to the citizens of Montana that everyone is equal and no one is inferior."

Karl Olson, executive director of the gay rights group Montana PRIDE, said the Senate vote marks the first time a gay rights bill has passed one of the chambers in the Legislature.

"We're totally excited," Olson said. "I'm going to go home and give my partner a kiss."

Others were dismayed.

"I think it's a sad day for Montana," said the Rev. Harris Himes, president of the Montana Family Coalition and pastor of the Big Sky Christian Center in Hamilton. "I think it's a sad day for churches."

Sen. Dan McGee, R-Laurel, said the definition of "sexual orientation" in the bill is too broad, and thinks that the anti-discrimination law would protect pedophiles and sexual predators.

"Are we going to have to hire a sexual predator as a counselor?" McGee asked. "Are we going to license a pedophile so they can be a day-care worker?"

An amendment to the bill limits "sexual orientation" to heterosexual, homosexual or bisexual. Toole said pedophiles and other criminals would not be protected under the law.

Sen. Jim Shockley, R-Victor, said he voted against the bill because it could potentially bring gays into contact with young people at an impressionable time in their lives. He suggested that a gay authority figure, such as a Boy Scout leader or a schoolteacher, could turn some teens gay.

"I think going with the majority is probably going to be the best for most people," Shockley said.

Toole said the bill is about fairness.

"We know there's prejudice in society," Toole said. "Do we want to extend these protections or not? To me, the answer is yes."

All Republican senators except Sen. John Cobb, R-Augusta, voted against the measure while all Democratic senators except Sen. Gerald Pease, D-Lodge Grass, voted for the bill.

my, sounds like *someone* is very insecure about his heterosexuality, he trembles everytime he passes a homosexual wondering if the homosexual sneezes, might he catch a case of the queers? did his daddy not play catch with him? show him how to build a treehouse? shoot a gun? did mommy spend just a little too much time hoping he would play the piano? act in the school play?

yes, it's a child like this we need to look out for. a healthy, happy homosexual teacher who is a positive influence in his life might just tip that precarious balance between sturdy, red-blooded American hetereosexualhood and lispy, effeminate homosexualdom.

How cute...equating homosexuality with pedophilia and sexual predatation.... Amazing how they conviently seem to ignore the fact that there've been numerous heterosexual pedophiles out there.

Some people are just...argh...

...geez, paranoia is the right word indeed...let's see, I've seen gay people around and everything, hell, my sister goes to school with some gay people, and yet we both haven't changed at all. Hmm. Imagine that.

Besides that, so...what about all the gay kids who come from homes in which the parents are straight? If being around gay people can supposedly make you turn gay, wouldn't the same be said for being around straight people? It always amazes me how people like this senator can't find an answer to that one.

And all this is taking place in the state directly north of mine. Great .

I went to school with gay people, too. It didn't have any sort of impact on me.
