well sort of, but it mainly originates with the clergy.

As an out alumnus of a relatively conservative Christian college (not Patrick Henry College level conservative, considering we had a tradition of one guys' dorm regularly cross dressing, but still gay-is-a-sin level conservative), I can say that there is no conspiracy. What there is is more and more alumni coming out, finding each other by word or mouth or social networking, and deciding that they don't want the next generation of students to go through what they did. Many of us are now at the point in our lives and careers when alumni traditionally start exerting influence on their alma maters, and for those of us who are queer, that includes trying to make life better for current queer students.

No surprise that an extremely conservative organization little understanding of how quickly ideas spread and grow in 2013.

Therefore, CONSPIRACY!

Pretty much this. The funniest thing is that Patrick Henry College's Weeners to the QueerPHC group was to take a page out of Ahmadinejad's playbook and proclaim that it must be a hoax because there are no homosexuals at Patrick Henry College.

Man...  It's got to be terrifying to be a Christian in this day and age.  Reality is crashing down upon you at the speed of light.  Everything you hate and fear is becoming more and more accepted in society because it's not a threat.  People are screaming and running from your religion as it demands more and more purity and inflexibility.

It sounds nice, brazen even, in your head, I'm sure. But, you may need to re-evaluate or actually get out in the world some more.

The thing that killed my generation is we did nothing more than isolate ourselves and surround ourselves with like-minded people. So of course we thought the world was changing before our very eyes.

Boy, were we a bunch of farking morons.

Didn't Jesus have long hair, wear flowing robes, hang out almost exclusively with men and always had wine available? Never married? Friends with female prostitutes?

Stereotypes are true, because...well, they're true.

You need to distinguish between Christians and fundamentalists. The fundies are freaking out that the world is changing, but there are plenty of Christians who aren't fundamentalists and think the changes are a good thing.

I was Southern Baptist until I was halfway through high school, I don't think I could have handled a Southern Baptist school. Which is probably why I didn't follow my older brother to Liberty.

My college was weird because it was overrun by hipster, wannabe intellectual types where if you were to set foot on campus you'd swear it was one of those super lefty expensive private colleges. What with the unwashed, ungroomed masses, the guys wandering around in skirts, girls who stopped shaving and/or shaved their heads, we dressed like an Occupy rally a decade too soon. And yet drinking was banned, dancing outside of the official school sponsored events was banned until my freshman year--we'd joke that it was because drinking leads to dancing which leads to sex which leads to smoking, which leads to skipping chapel--and despite the guys wandering around in skirts blathering pseudo-philosophical stuff about gender insecurity, being gay was treated as unthinkable.

Yeah, it's called turning celibate to force those gay urges from your pure Christian soul.

Just so you know, most of the kids who end up at a school as conservative as Patrick Henry College go there because that's where their parents make them go. Also, most kids who go to PHC are so indoctrinated and sheltered by their parents that even a school as strict as PHC is more freedom than they've experienced before. Not to mention that kids from that background are still busy trying to convince themselves they're straight, if they haven't suppressed their feelings so much that they haven't come close to considering they might be gay.

But go ahead and be judgmental and not the least bit compassionate for kids from super fundamentalist backgrounds.

So one of the most depressing experiences I've ever had was meeting a friend of a friend who had just come out of the closet.  He had grown up in the Michigan bible belt, crazy religious.  And realized he was gay.  He poured over the Bible, realized that (Leviticus nonsense aside, and if you count that then eating shrimp is a f--king sin too) even though he thought Jesus would approve of him his church never would.

THANKFULLY his parents who raised him crazy religious were good people who still loved their son unconditionally and totally supported him coming out... but he was completely abandoned and frankly attacked (not literally but on a principled level) by people and leaders in the church that he had dedicated his life to, where he had wanted to become a pastor, that was his raison d'etre.  And when I met him he was still reeling from that rejection.

I know he's okay now, as well he should be since he was a damn smart and resilient kid. But if his family weren't decent people....

More than likely, those super-fundies are also super-conservatives. Which means they are bootstrappy. Which means they should be able to figure this stuff out and become the great exceptional Americans that their tribe tells them they are.

I have some, for kids who grew up in that sheltered environment.  They didn't choose it.

I worked with a girl who had been homeschooled in the super-fundie environment for her entire life.  I worked with her when she was 16, and we (being myself and the other folks who worked there) were the very first time she had any significant interaction with anyone outside her conservative Christian homeschool group circle her entire life.  She was certainly a good person at heart, but the gaps in her knowledge were horrible - even basic logic and deduction were beyond her grasp.  My friend/coworker and I tried teaching her basic logic and critical thinking, and hoped that something would click - at least that in the future she'd realize that something was inherently wrong with what she'd been always taught was the absolute truth.

It didn't really work.  But we tried.   It's a crazy uphill battle, and I reserve my contempt for those who put undeveloped minds in that position from the get-go.

fta Lots of Christian colleges are dealing with the same thing right now. There are a number of new campus-aimed blog sites, all arising at about the same time, all targeting conservative or Christian campuses, and all deploying more or less the same rhetorical strategy. All these sites display a peculiar synchrony of message and method and timing.

Yeah, you've got a point there.  It's easy to think of anybody above the age of 18 as an adult who should therefore know how to make their own decisions.  But in reality some of us need a few years of adulthood to figure that part out.

Yeah, that kind of situation is a mess.

Stereotypes are true, because...well, they're true.


I always assumed that Jesus was gayer than the Folsom St. Fair. Although being gay wasn't a dealbreaker in the Greek-cultured world of that era and location, among the Hebrews or the Romans at that time being exclusively gay would have been incredibly perverse.

I'd assumed that Jesus's asexuality was a retcon to please the larger audience to his message; hence all that Pauline bullsh*t about abstinence and chastity.

It's about putting pressure on the institution to change, and to send the message to the kids who are still students and deeply closeted that they aren't alone.

I graduated from an expensive and very snobby private religious college a decade ago. When I was there, nobody was publicly out. There was the one kid who was out to a few friends (which meant gossip spread to everybody) but he was convinced he should stay celibate for the rest of his life. It caused a major stir on campus when we found out that immediately after graduation one very popular student had called off his engagement and come out. While I was a student there, I was about a million miles away from coming out to myself (at the time it was easy to write things off as "just haven't found the right guy yet"). I have a lot of great memories of college--my time there shaped my outlook on life in ways that I'm really glad of--and it's because of that that I, as an alumni, want to work to make my alma mater more welcoming to LGBT students. As an alumni, I feel a certain level of responsibility to help the kids who are there now, and it's the same way with LGBT alumni at a lot of schools. Change doesn't happen until alumni start putting pressure on their institutions.

Thanks. It makes me want to throw stuff at the TV when I see religious right leaders blathering on about how parents should isolate their kids to protect them from the "gay agenda." All it does is produce kids with more baggage to work through when they're adults.

I lucked out in that by the time I figured out I was gay, I was old enough to not really care what other people think.

PapaChester: I stopped reading early, at the GIF. Yeah, I couldn't get past that.


I couldn't stop looking at the header image. I wanna say that it was taken in Lisbon, but am not 100% sure because I haven't been...

As parents, we all have to prepare ourselves for that day when our kid may sit us down and say "Mom & Dad, I'm a Christian"

Well, just as long as they're not Catholic. Filthy Papists.

Bonzo_1116: I always assumed that Jesus was gayer than the Folsom St. Fair. Although being gay wasn't a dealbreaker in the Greek-cultured world of that era and location, among the Hebrews or the Romans at that time being exclusively gay would have been incredibly perverse. I'd assumed that Jesus's asexuality was a retcon to please the larger audience to his message; hence all that Pauline bullsh*t about abstinence and chastity.


I've always figured that, assuming that there was a historical Jesus, he was probably married to Mary Magdalene; the asexual retcon, the "Prostitute" retcon and the aforementioned "SEX IS BAD" bullshiat were all just Paul's self-loathing reaction to having an unrequited boner for Jesus. Yes, Paul was the first Republican. :P

This is such a simple transparent strategy. Its laughable that any one on the left thinks conservatives just won't see this coming.

Send a homosexual into a church or conservative religious college and when the homosexual is not hired because it conflicts with their religious beliefs - shut down the organization if they don't change their position. Gay people will be lining up to make applications to these organizations - not because they want to work there but because they want to destroy these people..

Complete transparent - and completely evil.

If Jesus was married to M Magdalene, or any other woman for that matter, he should have spawned a baby back in the days before condoms or the pill.

Unless it's even sadder than him being gay...he was sterile or impotent.

I went to a Christian college with an well known musical theater department. There was definitely a gay agenda going on there. One giant, entertaining as all get out gay agenda... if you like showtunes.

Yes, it's all because the gheys hate christ, and not because they want equal rights.
