Pink News: Christians vow to put up 1,000 anti-gay billboards across America


  1. Looks like it's a week for the ex/anti-gays. Sigh.

    1. Donna -- There's never a shortage of material on these things.

  2. "Christians vow to put up 1,000 anti-gay billboards across America."

    Can we all guess how that will end? (Actually, I don't see it happening, but if it does, the pushback will be awesome.)

    1. Shaw -- I can't wait to see the pushback. Of course, the people behind the anti-gay billboards will probably complain about how "persecuted" they are if that happens.

  3. Re: The Missouri guy. I am actually a how doctrinaire and sure and BINARY the liberals are on that comment thread. People are more changeable, more flexible, than they are willing to accept. This guy, for whatever reason (good or BAD) decided he was not going to live life as a gay man. The "teenage confusion" thing is silly and harmful and should be hooted down. But the idea that people cannot ever evolve sexually seems really strange and contrary to experience of a lot of people!!!
