Uncle Silly’s Celibacy

Timothy Kincaid

July 14th, 2010

July 23, 1992. That’s the last time that Randy Thomas, Exodus’ VP, had sex with another person. He was 24.

But he doesn’t mind. He’s fine being celibate and he doesn’t even mind not having any form or romantic or sexual relationship; he has other people’s kids to meet that need.

I can’t imagine myself at 50 either! But when I was 24, EIGHTEEN years ago :) I wouldn’t have imagined I would be single at 42 years old and not having sex with another person for the next 18 years!

As a matter of fact, if I had know that at 24 my brain might have exploded.

But let me ask you this, even if you are gay … is it possible to be alone … and gay … at 50? Is it possible to be with a partner but still lonely or miserable at 50? In fact, is it possible neither of us could make it to fifty? OR live to 100 and have a blissful life?

I also don’t envy my married friends anymore. I enjoy being “Mr. Randy” or “Uncle Silly” to kids all across North America. My relational needs are met and being met abundantly.

I’ve known plenty of people who find contentment in celibacy. And I fully support the right of each person to find the life that gives them meaning and fulfillment.

I just wish that Randy didn’t use his decades of celibacy as a tool to deny me my civil rights. I wish that he agreed with me that each person has the right to find the life that gives them meaning and fulfillment, even if it does not fit his god’s expectations.

This man’s relationship needs are being met by people who call him Uncle Silly and Mr. Randy? And nobody at Exodus sees this as just a tad unhealthy? I’d arm the kids of North America with tazers for when Uncle Silly pays a visit.

Sorry, but this guy is a liar, and I am sure of it.

Too bad that he lies AND cloaks himself in religion & false morality….

An adult who prefers kids and doesn’t think about or envy adult relationships.

Hmmmm.

Where have I seen that profile before?

So Exodus is really a chastity drive. Good to know.

“his god’s expectations” have been misunderstood, and misconstrued.

The Church (according to Paul’s epistle) considers celibacy as a “charism”, a gift. How is it then that the Church feels the freedom and the necessity to mandate to gay people (or to ministers/priests, for that matter) this charism, which is by definition a FREE GIFT of God? This is problem #1 with the gay/celibacy issue.

Problem #2 is that nowhere else in scripture does God bestow the same gift (of the numerous that are recorded) to an entire constituency or class of persons. It’s not there.

And yet some in the Church continue to insist on validity of this nonsensical notion.

Pardon my French, but this guy is full of sh!t.

I think part should be rephrased:

“As a matter of fact, if I had known that at 24 I would never have got sucked in by Exodus in the first place.”

Poor silly Uncle Silly, didn’t see the bait-and-switch of ‘the hope of change’?

Have to admit he’s probably oddly correct on this: “My relational needs are met and being met abundantly.”

Randy still has Me, Myself and I.

I suspect those are the only relationships he’s ever really been capable of committing to.

I literally read Randy’s words just now, teared up, walked up to my wife who’s quietly watching TV, and quickly hugged and kissed her.

I just want to tell Mr. Randy, “That’s your problem, don’t you dare try to make it mine.”

Can we see a pic of his hands? I bet he spends a ton of money in hair removal for them, if we are to believe that priests told us in catechism.

Excuse me, but if the guy is still masturbating, then he is NOT celibate. What exactly is he picturing in his mind when he climaxes? That is the question someone should be asking him.

Very Minor, very off topic…

“The Church (according to Paul’s epistle) considers celibacy as a “charism”, a gift. How is it then that the Church feels the freedom and the necessity to mandate to gay people (or to ministers/priests, for that matter) this charism, which is by definition a FREE GIFT of God?”

Aren’t all gifts, by definition, free? I mean when was the last time you tore off the wrapping paper, opened the box, said “Oh thank you!” and had the other person respond with “that’ll be $4.50”?

And now back to the regularly scheduled thread, already in progress….

I agree that Uncle Silly is just a tad too….Herbert from Family Guy for my bullsh!t-o-meter.

Randy is a self proclaimed sex addict, as are many “ex-gays” including Alan Chambers. They simply threw the baby out with the bath water instead of getting balanced professional help. Like most ex-gays and Side B’ers, they are celibate wannabees. None of this has to do with God. God is a far beyond control and bitch slapping.
Oh well Randy, it’s your life. Fix it now or come back again and do it all over.

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.
