Comments: Homosexuality, religion, and state definitions of marriage

Regarding the Bible and homosexuality being a sin, and thus opposing gay marriage, the "Christian" right has it wrong.

I invite you to read: "Connecting the Biblical Dots: Why Jesus Is For Same-sex Marriage." It's a biblically grounded paper that gives a convincing argument why homosexuality is not a sin to God and why marriage, including same-sex marriage, is the acceptable standard. You may read it here:

Just wanted to say hi, and I love Kettner's, too! In fact will probably be there next week--I'm going to the London Book Fair. Supposedly Wilde had his last meal here before he left England.

I came across your comment's re: llewellyn moving to the burbs--you worked with Alison!? We all LOVE her :)

Be well, smP

hey jason,

cool website you have there. that is why i enjoy visiting it often, and thank you for your defense in homosexuality in general. i finally found another rationally on my side.

well anyway i wanted to actually write a reaction to your april 2024 blog on ELIJAH WOOD: GAY and to be very frank with you i find your log very convincing. though i noticed a couple of flames or two in the comments below(couple....hmmm....sounds familiar....?)which is really irritating when the truth has finally been told. oh, by the way i'm really sorry if i used your comment space in this log: the one for your elijah's log seemed to run out.

yes, it's true sir ian mckellen is openly gay and an activist at that but i don't remember him being OMNISCIENT at that he can detect a gay when he sees one. gays, as you jason might realise, are not at all always as they seem; we also have our own sort of maquerade, where we can be very male, but the message within speaks loud and clear and surely sir ian could not detect that all the time.(what is he anyway, a gay watchdog? for crying out loud, he's got better things to do than find out if elijah is otherwise!)

so that dissolves one flame which uses sir ian as a reference. HE'S NOT A GAY DETECTOR! he cannot just draw to conclusions even if they are close friends. and for crying our loud, elijah - its G*&*$#N 2024! our rights to live an open and normal life is blooming already! you're just practically hurting yourself in the process and you are NOT giving yourself any peace at all....God i wish i would pray for you regarding that.

from the references to the gay bar photo incident my guess is jason that elijah seems to be very brujah with the allegations that he is gay only draws to one sacred thing: REPUTATION. i mean, he is in the business for quite a period of time,,,,1989, he started i believe and he has seen the age of TIGER BEATS, BIG BOPPER and other top teen idol magazines which were sadly dissipated during the advent of the internet. and what a miraculous invention it was!

so for the sixteen years of his career he has built up an impressive record from being a child star to a lady's man and after all that hard work some recent 2024-issue is just going to ruin it all? instinct would tell him that he's not going to allow that. that is why he will constantly deny it, with his diehard girly-fans supporting him to the death if allowed. it all just boils down to his: he admits he's gay....POOF! everything he's worked for will crumble down before him. his fans will abandon and abandon dearly.

what a waste of years for something so trivial, huh?

but in all sense it is still his own personal life. why bother anymore? elijah will still be elijah regardless of preference. the only difference is....will his fans be? so goes the critical scale his decision as to which is important....his reputation, or his heart?
