He's back!

You just can't keep a good publicity seeking fundamentalist Christian minister down! Massachusetts clergyman Tom Crouse had found a new venue and a new wrinkle to his Mr. Heterosexual contest. Read on:


Mechanics Hall is one of the world's finest concert halls. The Hall boasts a celebrity list that includes Thoreau and Dickens, Caruso and Dvorak, Teddy Roosevelt and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Yo Yo Ma and Itzak Perlman, Mel Torme and Ella Fitzgerald
And now the Mr Heterosexual 2006 Contest.

After having the original venue cancel due to the pressure of the homosexual activists, Pastor and Radio Talk Show Host Tom Crouse ,not to be deterred is pleased to announce that the event will be held in the historic Mechanics Hall, a bigger and better venue.

Also Tom is announcing the addition of a new event for the contest, The Best Marriage Proposal, where the married contestants will describe their proposal, and the single contestants will describe the one they will one day eventually give.

Mr Heterosexual has become the talk of the nation as Pastor Tom Crouse has had the nerve to create an event that celebrates Gods Design. He has been threatened with everything from being set on fire, to passing away soon. The radical homosexual activists have called him everything from Osama Bin Laden to Hitler. Why? Because at this event Tom is bringing in a man who once lived the homosexual lifestyle and has been freed through Jesus Christ!

Sigh...there is so much real trauma, heartache, and pain in this world that could be addressed by the compassion of religion and yet we have this guy just trying to make a headline.

If two gay people want to marry and enjoy all that marriage has to offer, then why they hell not? With a 50 percent divorce rate among us heteros they couldn't do much worse.

Ah, Mr. Crouse is undaunted. Sigh. The 'good fight' against sexual 'deviance' continues.

Wonder if the good man of the cloth has any strong feelings about our murderous pre-emptive war policies as a culture & country? Better to mobilize against sodomy and the dire threat of same-sex coupling, I reckon.

You two are painting this guy as a fire-breathing homo hater. He just wants to have an event celebrating the hetero lifestyle, and also happens to think it is the way God planned it.

He's just being in-your-face about what he believes. Aren't you for that?

He thinks Jesus can save gays from their sinful sinful wickedness and their journey to hell. He may be wrong. He may be stupid. But he is not forcing anybody to walk down the aisle and accept Jesus as their personal gay cure. If you don't like what he's preaching, change the channel. Isn't that what you say about South Park?

Chill out, man.

I really don't think I've painted him as a "homo hater." In fact both of my posts have largely been his own words. I've actually talked to him!

I think this is less about dogma and more about pursuing personal publicity by exploiting fear and hate. That bothers me from ANYBODY.

I've never told you to change the channel, so you chill.

Marky Mark said...

You just did it again.
" exploiting fear and hate."

But you're right - come to think of it, I can't recall you ever telling me to change the channel. You're not really into that whole "The Gauntlet" thing like Steve. Guilt by association.

So I must commence ta chillin'.
