January 28, 2009

72817539AW014_Meet_The_PresThanks to Pastor Rick Warren of the Saddleback Church and his old fashioned views on sexuality, a new sexual term has been coined. “Saddlebacking”.

lucyWell, it looks like the recession is hitting harder than I could have ever possibly imagined. The Chicago Feild Musuem has just 86’d their plans to show the “Lucy” exhibit this fall because of funding. The exhibit is currently in  Seattle, and not doing too well, either.
3.2 million years buried in the sand and Lucy decides to come to America just as the recession hits. Damn you, W! Talk about poor timing. I was so looking forward to having a little vacation in the windy city to see her.

Ted Haggard’s Sexuality is “complex”

Please let him make the right choice!

Please let him make the right choice!

After being exposed in another gay sex “scandal”, Ted Haggard says his sexuality is “complex” and  that is doesn’t fit in to a neat little box. I think this is the most intelligent thing I’ve ever heard Ted Haggard say, and I’m glad he finally realized it.

Now, the next step is to help other people to realize that everyone’s sexuality is complex. After all, he is in a perfect situation to do it. He is a popular preacher, his audience is composed almost entirely of people with little tolerance of different sexualities, and he will soon be doing a massive press tour in support of a new documentary. He could help thousands of people if he just comes out and peaches acceptance. I hate to be a pessimist, but I suspect he will backtrack and continue touting the same old anti-gay bullshit. But, I’m hoping to be surprised.
