namatad: I always thought she was a lesbian. Oh wait, she was born again recently?


To be fair, wouldn't getting born again require her to be in close proximity to someone's vagina?

WhyteRaven74: She's been a born again for years now, and she was raised Mormon. And yes that strengthens your point.


So, I just checked Wiki, since I didn't realise she had a career - and it has a whole paragraph debating whether or not she's gay, ending in a firm "Probably." Of course. When the only things I need to know are "Do they hate gay people," "Are they loud and obnoxious about it" and "Are they Christian"... Forget romantic comedies, friggin' Mario games have harder plots to guess.

Came here to say that.  Maybe she decided it was time for a career change.  I hear Arby's is hiring.

Whoa. Wait... Last time I heard anything about her she was a lesbian.

Now she's a born again Christian who hates homosexuals? And her music STILL sucks?

Sigh.

I continue to believe fervently that anyone who is at all concerned that someone may be having sex in a manner different from some tradition wants to be having sex in a manner different from that same tradition, and can't because they won't let themselves.

I don't care if gay people have NASAL sex, I don't care if lesbians have sex only 8-10 times per year. But if someone tells me gay dudes get 30 blowjobs a year minimum, I'm strangely concerned. Not for them, but concerned that I'm being significantly short-changed by traditional marriage.

Let's face it: it's not as though Shocked can't recover from this.

If she starts dating a woman, all will be forgiven.
And if she beats that woman bloody, she'll get a Grammy.

cc_rider: Now I am hearing that she is supposedly a paranoid schizophrenic. I did not know of this before, I thought she was somewhat off but I figured it was drugs/drink. if true, It puts an interesting twist on the crap she said. Religious zeal+mental illness can be a ugly combination.

Hopefully she resolves whatever the fark her inner conflicts are and apologizes for that noise.

I want to see studies of religious zealots brains. Guessing mental illness and religious zealotry are very closely aligned in terms of what areas of the brain function or over function or are missing. Bet Republicanism is right in there with it too.

We won't ever see it, but it'd be awesome to understand why some people cannot be reasoned with, who glom onto stories with no possible explanation based in reason, and who actively seek out to condemn in others what they are most concerned exists in themselves.

All the little lesbians in college loved her music back in 1990. What a kick in the box.

Man, Bob Dylan gets religion and we get a lot of songs with awesome gospel style layered over blues about how quitting drugs is hard and getting your life back on track is painful but worthwhile.  The Beatles get (strange) religion, and you get five-minute sitar ballads about how everyone should relax and get along and shiat.

Stupid pop-rock bullshiat kiddies get religion and we get rants about evil homosexuals.

That's a pretty good illustration of why modern music has kinda gone downhill since the 80s, I think.  The singers just aren't real people with actual life experiences and problems and so on anymore.

I'm calling it now: Self-hating lesbian who turned born-again as a way of overcompensating. Not that I've ever heard of this person before, but at this point, homophobes' motivations are about as diverse as romantic comedies' plots.
