Video: From 'X Games' to 'ex-gays'
Christian Hosoi is a professional skateboarder who, in the most Chuck Colson-ian of fashions, became a born-again Christian while incarcerated for trafficking crystal meth. Nowadays he is trafficking another dangerous substance: The sort of unscientific ideas that have the power to make gay kids hate themselves. Here, check this out:
Eh, when it comes to riding wood and smokin' (half) pipe, we've always preferred Tony Hawk anyway.
His problem right off the bat is taking the Bible "literally", anytime you do that, you lose the ability to talk about a issue sensibly.

What a twisted sense of logic on that one. If God created everything he created sin too.
And the whole "...let us..." bit, was their God referring to the angels, or to the others in the Bible? Hmmm.
Sort of how Al'Lah is the Moon God, hence the crescent and star in Islam.

Where the fuck is God's Woman (or man if god is a woman)? If anything, he would have made us asexual. Or rapists! I mean, what else would you call someone if they impregnated a woman (oh.. say.. Mary) without her permission. That's a rapist in my book! And, what about their bastard child, Jesus! Was he married? Oh, wait, the church full of old fat men is his bride! Sounds pretty gay to me!

Jesus Christian, you look like shit man.

That's a shame. I always looked up to Christian as a kid. I'm not gay but neither am I dumb enough to believe that 'gay' is or isn't God's will.
It really scares me the way that science and genetics have been demonized by the crazy fundamentalists...the same people who voted for Palin.
Christian doesn't have to worry about turning off customers with his comments because nobody buys his boards now anyway.
But it's still a shame that he'd take this stance. I thought he was sober but sometimes crazy is worse than having your mind altered by a substance.

The fact that he posts his videos on MentallyRetardedTube says it all.

Yes I'll listen to the word of some god especially when delivered by a former drug trafficker. "If you take the bible literally and it is true" what a moron. Yeah skate punks have all the answers. Let us create man in our image. WHAT A LINE OF BULLSHIT.

One of my friends on Live Journal has an icon that says, "Whenever you see a rainbow, God is having gay sex."

What fuels homophobia? The desire to discriminate against gays and lesbians, and thus to reserve special privileges to heterosexuals, appears to have many causes. Some are: 1) Inability or unwillingness to change the information received during childhood. 2) Fear of people who are different. 3) Promotion of homophobia by a religious group. 4) a heterosexual's natural feeling of repulsion at the thought of engaging in same-sex activity. Realizing that homosexual behavior is unnatural for them, some people generalize this feeling into the belief that homosexuality is wrong for everyone. 5) Actual homosexual feelings that a person cannot acknowledge or handle. 6) Low self esteem leading to a need to hate other group(s).
I THINK HE WAS WONDERFULLY "ENTERTAINED" WHILE INCARCERATED...

I've officially lost all respect for Hosoi.
