His own gayness 'solved,' Bennett looks to community at large

by Jeremy Hooper

 Good As You Images  Good As You Images Picture-19-12-1In a blog post wherein he joins the chorus of voices who've been trying to blame gays for MRSA, professional "ex-gay" Stephen Bennett says the following:

Many are suggesting it's now time that something is done about those individuals (hetero and homo) who are knowingly putting others, this nation and the greater population of our citizens -- at serious risk.

As controversial as this is, it will be very interesting to see what "ideas" / "solutions" (if any) emerge. "Gay" media is already crying "victim", while slamming Evangelicals - saying they are crying wolf. Will keep you all posted.

Uhm..."Ideas"? "Solutions"? WOW!  Call us sensitive to being compared to notorious political movements, but it'd be a cold day in Germany before we'd express even a passing interest in devising a final solution to deal with populations that we find unsavory!!  It just sounds so -- extreme.  And nutty.  And frightening

Of course since he doesn't want to be a hypocrite, we're sure Stephen and friends will be equally as intrigued by how, exactly, the "solution" will be extended to one of MRSA's highest risk groups:

Your thoughts

As Al Gore points out in his pro-marriage equality video making the rounds, if these groups truly wanted to lessen the promiscuity in some gay men, they'd rally for marriage equality, too.

Scary...he says that "these 'men'" (why does he put men in quotes?!) have "TO STOP". Stop what?

I think we all know what he means...stop living. This is one scary dude...nice to see the mask come off of these "men" in the anti-gay industry.

Andrew: It's absolutely true that the mask is coming off. And this MRSA thing is a particularly good place for it to happen, since the interest in it expands far outside the LGBT community.

Shane: I was posting the Al Gore video just as I read ur comment. Love it.

I hate to make a point that seems so obvious. But.

*** Breaking News *** New form of the cold found in amount heterosexual men. Let's take action, this is getting out of control. To the media that does this, you are evil! Really, think about yourself a bit.

I never understood Stephen Bennett. How can one call himself an "ex-gay" when all he done was slapped a wig on a horse and called it his "wife"? He isn't fooling me!

Here's the really weird thing about Stephen, Scott: He claims to have been extremely active in the NYC gay community and to have dated hundreds of men. However, I've never met one person who knew or even knew of him. Literally. All of the gays of his generation who were so active in the social and political scenes of the '80s and '90s -- nobody has any memory.

I'm not saying at all he's lying, but his story has always been a little suspect.
