Video: The deevolution will be televised

by Jeremy Hooper

We in the gay community have worked for years to teach America about our lives and loves, and to cut through the dangerous spin that has caused harm for so many queer people. A well-financed, well-connected network is trying to undermine all of that progress with a thoroughly unscientific message of "change":

And here we were annoyed with having to be subjected to the early round American Idolers' discordant notes. Who knew that the winter TV schedule would also be tarnished with the out-of-tune, inharmonious idea that gays and lesbians can and should change their sexual orientations? [::sigh::] We can take a sixteen-year-old butchering "Respect" -- but a grown adult massacring the concept of respect for gay lives and loves is far more jarring! We're not digging it, dawg.

Though Paula does want to say that you look great, Nima Reza.

Hopeless and hurting because of the very ministries that promise an unneeded and empty "salvation".

Well, at least there is Oprah and Rev. Ed Bacon. All of those lying liars might have the God-Damn-Them-To-Hell channel, but Oprah has all of the channels that people actually watch.

Please continue to put that hot narrator boy in your videos.
