Ex-gay leader has tantrum on CNN [VIDEO]


The head of the anti-gay National Association for the Research and Therapy of Homosexuals (NARTH), Dr. Joseph Nicolosi, was featured on the CNN special on "What is a Christian: Sex and Salvation" last week, and reporter Gary Tuchman tried to engage with Nicolosi about his research and claims that effeminacy and affinity of the arts are signs parents to watch out for lest their child become a homo.

He had a hissy fit and stormed off (video upper right)

C'mon down and watch the fun.

Current Mood: Oy...

Evangelicals disrupt play

Mike Daisey Raptures the Evangelicals (video possibly NSFW due to profanity).


From Mike Daisey:
Last night’s performance of INVINCIBLE SUMMER was disrupted when eighty seven members of a Christian group walked out of the show en masse, and chose to physically attack my work by pouring water on and destroying the original of the show outline.

I’m still dealing with all the ramifications, but here’s what it felt like from my end: I am performing the show to a packed house, when suddenly the lights start coming up in the house as a flood of people start walking down the aisles–they looked like a flock of birds who’d been startled, the way they all moved so quickly, and at the same moment…it was shocking, to see them surging down the aisles. The show halted as they fled, and at this moment a member of their group strode up to the table, stood looking down on me and poured water all over the outline, drenching everything in a kind of anti-baptism.

I sat behind the table, looking up in his face with shock. My job onstage is to be as open as possible, to weave the show without a script as it comes, and this leaves me very emotionally available--and vulnerable, if an audience chooses to abuse that trust. I doubt I will ever forget the look in his face as he defaced the only original of the handwritten show outline--it was a look of hatred, and disgust, and utter and consuming pride.

It is a face I have seen in Riefenstahl's work, and in my dreams, but never on another human face, never an arm's length from me--never directed at me, hating me, hating my words and the story that I've chosen to tell. That face is not Christian, by any definition Christ would be proud to call his own--its naked righteousness and contempt have nothing to do with the godhead, and everything to do with pathetic human pride at its very worst.

Mind control being used by many radical evangelist churches


The Battle for Your Mind: Persuasion and Brainwashing Techniques Being Used On The Public Today – by: Dick Sutphen


I first read this when I was in college and it was a real eye opener. I have always been suspicious of the creepy advances made on people in radical evangelist environments, when I discovered that they were using out right mind control methods often used by destructive cults I was horrified.


Seriously it’s well worth the read and scary beyond all reason. Take a look.

Pentacle OK'd on headstones

LJ-SEC: (ORIGINALLY POSTED BY [info]exotic_princess)


MADISON, Wis. - The Wiccan pentacle has been added to the list of emblems allowed in national cemeteries and on government-issued headstones of fallen soldiers, according to a settlement announced Monday.

A settlement between the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and Wiccans adds the five-pointed star to the list of "emblems of belief" allowed on VA grave markers.

Eleven families nationwide are waiting for grave markers with the pentacle, said Selena Fox, a Wiccan high priestess with Circle Sanctuary in Barneveld, Wis., a plaintiff in the lawsuit.
