Sinful Homosexual Thanksgiving Behavior (and a recipe!)

Rob Tisinai

November 25th, 2010

As you all know, there are no homosexuals, there is only sinful homosexual behavior.  And I’m afraid I’m at it again.

Will and I are going to his parents’ house for Thanksgiving, and last night I made a sweet potato/apricot dish for the family.  All because Will is my homosexual life partner.  But there’s hope:  some denominations tell me if I just pray hard enough, God will deliver me from making sinful homosexual casseroles.

In the meantime here’s the recipe (too late for your Thanksgiving, I know, but I recommend it for Christmas!).

Sweet Potato and Apricot Puree with Pecan Streusel

  • 5 large sweet potatoes (about 4 lbs)
  • 6 oz  dried apricots
  • 1 tablespoon  granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon  flour
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar — firmly packed
  • 1 tablespoon  unsalted butter — softened
  • 2/3 cup chopped pecans — toasted lightly

1.  Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

2.  Prick potatoes and bake in middle of oven 1 1/2 hours, or until very soft. Scoop flesh into a bowl.

3.  In a saucepan cover apricots by 1 inch with cold water and simmer until soft, about 30 minutes.  Reserve 2 tablesppons of cooking liquid and drain apricots.  In a food processor puree apricots with granulated sugar and reserved liquid until smooth.

4.  Add puree to potatoes with salt to taste and with an electric mixer beat until smooth.  Spread mixture in a buttered 2 quart shallow baking dish.  (Puree may be made to this point 1 day ahead and chilled, covered.)

5.  Reduce oven temperature to 400 degrees.  In a small bowl blend with your fingers flour, brown sugar, butter, pecans, and salt to taste until combined well and crumble over puree.  Bake puree in middle of oven until heated through and streusel is bubbling, about 15 minutes.

And if you’re on a low-fat or low-sugar diet, it’s great even without the streusel topping!

“Prick potatoes??!?!?!?!”

You homosexuals can’t even make a simple recipe without making it all about sex!

I’m here from Grandmere Mimi’s Wounded Bird. I have to say that this couldn’t just be a sinful homosexual recipe. It applies to persons of any proclivity. ;-)
But I must ask why you left the fibre grams out of the lovely calorie count, etc. You obviously aren’t a Weight Watcher, or you’d know to always include that. It makes the points lower, therefore less sin-full!

That sounds utterly delicious. I almost wish I could cook… but trust me, the cooking is best left to others. (I’ve burned water. It’s a talent.)

Happy turkey-day, everyone!

they SAY they’ll deliver you from the sin…but in reality, it just drives that desire for brown sugar and sweet potatoes inward.
it’ll be all you think about. candied yams and marshmallows…
then comes the guilt, because damnit, it was supposed to work.
so you’ll hide it as best you can,eat your chicken breast salad and rage against those hell bound carb eaters


one day you’ll find yourself in a walmart at 2am buying pumpkin pie filling, wondering how you got to this point

and omg. it’ll taste so good.

I whip my sweet potatoes with apple sauce and a bit of cream.

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.

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.
