    What is a homosexual act?
    Be specific.

  2. nomisM says:

    Good timing, appearing in the week before the book “In the Closet of the Vatican” by Frederic Martel is published which according to the publisher is a “startling account of corruption and hypocrisy”. Claiming that the most homophobic Vatican clerics are most likely to be gay.

    …and tell it reeeeal slow. Yeah. That’s it. Thanks. 😉

  4. HelenaHandbasket says:

    nomisM. No! Say it aint so. Next you’ll be saying that the evangelicals who squeal about the sins of homosexuality are likely to be gay. I can’t believe that Ted Haggard, Rick Warren, Vaughn Reeves, Eddie Long, Marcus Lamb, Albert Odulele or George Rekkers are gay. WHat hypocrisy that would be. You take that back.

  5. smee says:

    Reminds me of the complaints by Mary WHitehouse and her ilk about “filth” on tv. Iwas so disgusted I had to record it and watch it many times!

  6. M27Holts says:

    With the modern degrees of scale in terms of our sexuality. I want to know if i’m at all a bit gay round the edges….I do wear pink boxers, but I think thats more to do with my ability to do the laundry properly…

  7. Mark says:

    A “sin against the natural order” that’s been observed in over 1500 different animal species.

  8. M27Holts says:

    Aye. Mary Whitehouse…who made it her business to scrutinise every second of “filth” every night…her knickers were squelching in indignation at such televisual titillation…

  9. Michael says:

    It certainly seems as if certain professional godbotherers spend more time thinking about gay sex than gays do.

    Technically speaking, masturbation is a homosexual act, as only one sex is involved. I once stopped a homophobe in his tracks by pointing out that if he masturbated, he enjoyed not only the feel of a cock, but the touch of a man’s hand, which is as gay as makes no difference.

  11. Son of Glenner says:

    hotrats’ remarks remind me of the well-known description of masturbation as having sex with someone you really really love!

  12. Suffolk Blue says:

    M27 … LOL!

  13. M27Holts says:

    Hotrats. What about using a flashlight masturbator?

  14. Laripu says:

    David and Jonathan. Jus’ sayin’.

  15. Welshman says:

    “The Bible contains 6 admonishments to homosexuals, and 362 to heterosexuals. That doesn’t mean that God doesn’t love straight people, just that they need more supervision.” – Lynn Lavner

  16. two cents' worth says:

    Hotrat, I wonder if the homophobe you mentioned likes shrimp. The Old Testament includes text saying that homosexuality is an “abomination” and so is eating shrimp. Someone once told me that, in the original Hebrew , the same word for “abomination” is used in both verses. I guess the OT author(s) disagreed with the maxim de gustibus non est disputandum.

  17. Someone says:

    Maybe all these puritans and extremists are scared of homosexuality as a form of evolutionary population control.
    If evolution, not God, dictates the direction and propagation of our species, then perhaps people will be less likely to believe other aspects the “holy books” claim to know and dictate about human nature, both in mind and body.

    Or maybe they’re just closeted and in denial.

  18. Necessary Evil says:

    If I’m attracted to someone with whom sex couldn’t lead to pregnancy, then I don’t fabricate that attraction; it is part of my nature. Religious purists call such an attraction unnatural but they are wrong, as surely something that is part of my nature can’t be unnatural.

  19. M27Holts says:

    I suppose that the sexual proclivities of an organism with the ability to abstract its reproductive urges and place them into spaces that other creatures cannot. Was always likely to extend the range of sexual practices beyond our randiest cousins..the bonobos…

  20. HackneyMartian says:

    Somewhere in my last week’s radio/podcast listening there was an interesting account of how the trial of Oscar Wilde changed male public behaviour. Before, it was quite usual for men (of any orientation) to walk arm-in-arm. After, not. You can see this in pre-trial novels.
