Birds of a feather ain’t flocking

Adam Hood, the ex-gay scarfboi whose “prophetic utterances” and history with both extensive drug abuse and mental illness have left me convinced that he had precarious mental health, has made quite a splash on the blogosphere lately. In fact, he’s even caught the attention of anti-gay activist James Hartline, another ex-gay whose “prophetic utterances” and history with both extensive drug abuse and mental illness have led me to the same conclusion.

You’d think they’d find common ground in, if nothing else, their shared hostility towards the gay community that took them in and sheltered them when no one else would.

You’d be wrong.

Within the past few minutes, Hartline has tweeted his opinions about Hood:

# I was informed a year ago by ministries in San Francisco regarding a man named Adam Hood who put curses on Christians he couldn’t control. 6 minutes ago

# Incompetent homosexual activists are being “hood” winked by emergent church media behind Adam Hood to help promote Hood’s hidden agenda. 11 minutes ago

What Hartline means by all this is beyond me.

Birds of a feather won’t flock together when they are trying to claim the same feeding grounds. They are very territorial that way.

One of these birds has a lot more plummage than the other.

Yeah, but which one of these Coo-coos is the one who flew over the nest?

I think Hartline might be onto something. This Hood guy just seems too much of a parody to take seriously. His outfit and set (along with the finger snapping) have to be cues that he’s taking his new buddies for a ride. His description of his wedding night was just over the top. I really hope, for his sake, that this is a parody!

Sorry, it’s not a parody. He is dead serious.

It means they’re both pulling out the Full Gospel big guns: they’re accusing each other of charismatic witchcraft. Rival pentecostals do this to each other all the time. Anybody they can’t bullsh*t is a “witch.”

IMO, these prancing queens know that they’re still as gay as a 3 dollar bill and know EXACTLY how full of BS each other is. The christian dupes may buy the act, but these two don’t, not for a minute.

I predict they’ll inadvertently get invited to the same meeting and end up bitch-slapping each other on the stage.

Of course they hate each other! They each hate themselves, so how can they not hate someone else who is so similar?

That is the problem with someone whose entire philosophy is based on self-loathing. He is going to hate others who share the trait he hates in himself. He is going to hate others who aren’t sufficiently supportive of his self-hatred. He is going to hate others who are not self-loathing as well. It doesn’t leave much room in his life for love or positive experiences.

Thanks for the laugh, I needed that!

Erick in Oakland – I couldn’t agree more! This is tragic and painful to watch. Adam is heading ‘straight’ for the edge and he’s going to fall hard.

See the rocking? That’s called akathasia, and while in some people it’s learned behavior in an effort to comfort themselves when under stress, in psychatric patients it’s usually caused by a paradoxical reaction to a neuroleptic (antipsychotic) medication that has caused extreme anxiety in the patient.

Taking into account his comments about prior psychotropic drug use, delusional behavior, previous psychiatric hospitalizations, paranoia, et al., I do believe that if scarfboi doesn’t get himself to his doctor ASAP and get evaluated for neuroleptic intolerance, he’s headed for a major episode of teh crazy.

when I read about adam or hartline or any other headcase the religious right is using for their venomous purposes it always come to my mind the verses from a song, its fits like a glove:

It’s astounding, time is fleeting
Madness takes its toll
But listen closely, not for very much longer
I’ve got to keep control
(Time Warp – rocky horror picture show)

when Scarfboi and The Queen of Harts finally loose control, what will their xtian friends do with then? and we al know its a matter of time for it to happen.

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.
