Not Gay

That’s what he says, anyway. Fair enough, but it’s still clear that this ‘mo is a queer as a three dollar bill.

“Homosexuality is an abomination. It’s a sin that God will damn. If they stay in that sin, they will be damned to hell and rightly so. Because they need to be quarantined because they’ll continue in their rebellion and they’ll try to bring that gangrene into heaven, and God’s not having it.”

Hood tells his life story in another video here.

Update: The Recycle Your Faith web site, which appears to have produced this video, doesn’t seem to be a particularly anti-gay web site per se, but a site trying to foster dialogue. Here are two videos posted just last week which take a gay affirming view. And speaking of “not gay”, these videos feature someone else who is really not gay. Kathy Baldock, an Evangelical Christian, studied the clobber verses and decided that most of Evangelical Christianity — including Adam Hood — has it completely wrong about homosexuality. Her “rewind” video is particularly moving.

The nastiest words I get are from Evangelical Christians… I am told that I’m going to hell, I’m told that I’ve got the blood of thousands of people on my hands, that I’m a tool of Satan, I’m called a really inappropriate word…”

Kathy has a blog here.

Seems by his logic, we should all give up any kind of sex. While we’re at it, chocolate, raspberries, and maybe roller coasters should be banned. Anything causing pleasure is apparently a sin. In any case and sarcasm aside, I feel sorry he is lost in this religious idealism so that he is denying himself his own identity. He must be so confused and lost. Also, I think he missed the part about shunning women on their periods, stoning women who disobey their husbands, and etc. Is he advocating for a complete return of Old Testament backwards thinking?

It’s difficult to believe it isn’t some sort of parody.

It is hard to see this as anything but a parody, but I think he’s genuine. I don’t say this to be unkind, but…

After years of following the ex-gay movement, I can honestly say that I can’t think of a single ex-gay that doesn’t appear stereotypically gay.

“After years of following the ex-gay movement, I can honestly say that I can’t think of a single ex-gay that doesn’t appear stereotypically gay.”

Yes, the women make Clint Eastwood seem like a sissy and the men make Paul Lynde seem butch. It is strange.

He’s more along the lines of James Hartline; seriously mentally ill.

I’m honored to call Kathy a friend of mine. She’s an amazing woman, and I appreciate her heart so much.

She’s the best straight advocate you could hope for.

This video is part of a series on Youtube where people talk about the evils of teh gay. Its real. There’s even a longer one of this poor guy where he talks about San Francisco having literal witches and demons. While it’s tempting to laugh at him, he’s clearly very ill. The Christian group exploiting him in this way should be deeply ashamed of themselves.

Whoops, I shouldve read the update. Sorry. Ignore my last post.

“Yeeeah, ‘cuz straight guys always wear a scarf like that.”

I’m a Kinsey 6 and I wouldn’t be caught dead wearing anything like that.

So many interesting things in here. The first being the encouraging bit of news that 92% of 16-19 yo’s rightly perceive that the bulk of Christian thought leans anti-gay. Apparently sugar-coating the truth with “love the sinner, not the sin” doesn’t fool most young people.

“Many people hate me temporarily and get saved a month later.” This sounds nice, but I’m guessing he’s making up stories.

“God can do it by cracking a whip.” Hmmm, God gets around to “it” all by all sorts of means.

I’ve heard a couple ex-gays talk at Christian events and both of them sounded just as stereotypically gay as this guy.

I see more and more people “sitting in the pews” that care about the treatment of the GLBT community. The long journey however to the pulpit is S L O W. I try different ways to reach out to pastors to simply have conversation. The typical response is the assumption that I need spiritual counsel and they offer to have the “pastor” talk with me. I just move on.
Doors are creaking open however. This Sunday, I am going with two gay men to a large Assembly of God Church in CA for a service and a planned conversation and lunch with the senior staff. They KNOW this is an issue.
I have lots to say in my blog. Check it out. Thanks for posting the video.

This guy is fabulous! He is so not homosexual, but has so totally perfected the flaming-bitchy-queen persona. With a flair for the dramatic, he’s got it all – the costume, the over-the-top hyperbole, the sweeping hand/arm gestures, and the vocal inflections, including my personal favorite, his riveting lapses into breathiness.

Since this guy is married, I guess it means that God is okay with flaming bitchy queens as long as they struggle to have sex with women who have been enticed into marrying them. So God hates the sin, loves the sinner, but He apparently has so little love for women that He’s willing to see them enticed (or more often duped) into marrying guys who have no sexual desire for them. And that’s called timeless Biblical morality. It’s marriage as God designed it to be.

“Adam is a straight man who used to be gay.”- LIE OF THE CENTURY! Isn’t it one of the ten commandments to not bear false witness? This man couldn’t possibly get any gayer. I checked this video out on youtube, and all the comments say the exact same thing. i hope he reads them so he can better see that he’s not fooling anyone, and he’s making a total fool of himself. People are so moronic, I swear to God. Even if he didn’t wear that ridiculous outfit, you can still tell he’s gay by his lispy voice, and even his posture and facial structure. It really just boggles my mind, how all these people can go through their lives able to tell a gay person from a straight person based soley on physical characteristics (I know because I got made fun of in school, and i wasn’t even out), and still pretend they believe noone is born gay.

“Even if he didn’t wear that ridiculous outfit, you can still tell he’s gay by his lispy voice, and even his posture and facial structure.’

Why do you suppose some gay men exhibit these characteristics? Is it really natural or just some affectation they develop?

Of course, there has always been another segment of gays who are hypermasculine or try to act that way (the leather guys, the bears or the old 1970’s Castro clones).

Kathy, congratulations, you have just been added to my short list of Heroes and Heroines!

Keep up the courageous and righteous struggle against the fear and ignorance that breeds injustice.

Namaste.

What Are Little Boys Made Of?

In this original BTB Investigation, we unveil the tragic story of Kirk Murphy, a four-year-old boy who was treated for “cross-gender disturbance” in 1970 by a young grad student by the name of George Rekers. This story is a stark reminder that there are severe and damaging consequences when therapists try to ensure that boys will be boys.

Slouching Towards Kampala: Uganda’s Deadly Embrace of Hate

When we first reported on three American anti-gay activists traveling to Kampala for a three-day conference, we had no idea that it would be the first report of a long string of events leading to a proposal to institute the death penalty for LGBT people. But that is exactly what happened. In this report, we review our collection of more than 500 posts to tell the story of one nation’s embrace of hatred toward gay people. This report will be updated continuously as events continue to unfold. Check here for the latest updates.

Paul Cameron’s World

In 2005, the Southern Poverty Law Center wrote that “[Paul] Cameron’s ‘science’ echoes Nazi Germany.” What the SPLC didn”t know was Cameron doesn’t just “echo” Nazi Germany. He quoted extensively from one of the Final Solution’s architects. This puts his fascination with quarantines, mandatory tattoos, and extermination being a “plausible idea” in a whole new and deeply disturbing light.

Testing The Premise: Are Gays A Threat To Our Children?

Anti-gay activists often charge that gay men and women pose a threat to children. In this report, we explore the supposed connection between homosexuality and child sexual abuse, the conclusions reached by the most knowledgeable professionals in the field, and how anti-gay activists continue to ignore their findings. This has tremendous consequences, not just for gay men and women, but more importantly for the safety of all our children.
