Audio: Eavesdropping on 'The Call'
Wanna hear what it sounds like when a butt load of religious folks pray and fast for the elimination of gay people's civil equality? Well let's check in with "The Call," that disturbing evangelical event currently underway in San Diego, CA:
First up: These three clips which primarily feature Jim Garlow, the pastor of San Diego's Skyline Church:
Next up: Here's the majority of what Dr. Dobson had to say. Especially listen to the end, when he "explains" how this is not about hate, but rather love. Oh, and when he also insinuates that we who protest against anti-gays do so because of our "childhood pain":
In this clip, you will hear random young people praying for the elimination of our equality. But don't be offended. As you will hear pastor Miles McPherson explain, he and his followers are not "freaks" who hate gays. They are really exterminators called upon to rid the world of satanic roaches:
Now here's the Family Research Council's Tony Perkins expains why it's not the frightening economy, the life-depriving wars, or any other modern crisis that voters should keep in mind on Tuesdays. No, no -- it's the gays:
Professional "ex-gay" Yvette Schneider explains how niceties and free cappuccinos led her to enjoy kissing boys:
**SEE ALSO: Mike Tidmus has more on "The Call", as well as photos from an interfaith event that was held this morning in opposition to the anti-gay soiree:

*An interesting note for anyone weaned on 80's country music: Apparently at the beginning of "The Call", country singer Ricky Skaggs blew the shofar. Star power, baby.
If you click all the start buttons at once, it's like they're speaking in tongues, and then what they're saying is even more easily identified as the nonsensical gibberish it really is.
Dobson should feel the lord's hand across his backside!

"invisible battle being waged in the HEAVENLIES"
What a crock! Is that even a word? And, that one screaming (praying??) chick must either believe that god is deaf, or she must be on the rag, or something.
How many tens-of-thousands (hundreds) did they get out to the culminatory event? The only pics I have seen are severe narrow angle shots at ground level, and it looked like maybe a couple thousand of the famished made it.

Now you need to Google "Zombietime" and click on "Up Your Alley Fair" to see how much more normal those folks are than the crowd in San Diego. Bill

Perhaps it's the lack of sleep, but the headlining picture looked quite a bit like Gary Busey and with Victoria Jackson gracing the pages in another post ... it seemed more like a call for Celebrity Rehab and an opening for the fad of snorting cocaine off a dog. Though I'd have to wonder what PETA's stance on that may be.
But there is something rather entertaining in the prospect of a rather large sexually repressed pray-a-thon. My experiences with various religious functions in my youth, reminded me that often these are the best places to get laid.
A life which denounces masturbation, female orgasms, oral sex and the worship of a drag queen with a bondage fetish, it's fair enough to understand why they're so frustrated.
Though the plus side, I'd imagine it would be easier to get more hard and heavy restroom action there than spending a weekend at a bathhouse or the pottery barn.
On another note, quite a bit older: Dobson on Gender roles and preventing homosexuality within boys, by fathers' lathering up the full monty in the shower.
"Meanwhile, the boy's father has to do his part. He needs to mirror and affirm his son's maleness. He can play rough-and-tumble games with his son, in ways that are decidedly different from the games he would play with a little girl. He can help his son learn to throw and catch a ball. He can teach him to pound a square wooden peg into a square hole in a pegboard. He can even take his son with him into the shower, where the boy cannot help but notice that Dad has a penis, just like his, only bigger."
Though a square to square, a triangle to triangle, that's all pretty queer to me. But I suppose the focus is on the creation of size queens and chickenhawks.

You're right, =P: Garlow totally looked like Busey at this event.
