MattyBlast: Okay, this is something I don't understand.  How can closeted gay men marry women and have children?  In order to have children, you have to get an erection while rolling around naked with a member of the gender you do not prefer.  Then it has to get arousing to the point where you ejaculate into the body of the member of the gender you do not want to be with.  How does a closeted gay man do this...by closing his eyes tightly during vaginal sex and fantasizing about the models in the latest International Male catalog??


There are varying degrees of sexual preference.  An out and out flamer (no offense) might not be able to do this, but there are varying degrees of bisexuality.  Odds are that over time, his preferences shifted.  That and sometimes closing your eyes and fantasizing about someone helps.  Hell, I do that with the wife sometimes - just fantasize about women from work, etc.

The last "Unnecessarily detailed confessional" I remember the man who was (at the time) in denial tended to fantasize banging the woman, being watched by another man, and then having that man join in.  The fantasies also progressed, over time, as he slowly stretched and dilated his rigid Protestant morality to accept larger and longer fantasies, slowly letting them thrust deeper into his hidden homosexual desire filling up his needs.

Sorry I seem to have let that paragraph get away from me.

The point is the human mind is pretty good at rationalization and self-delusion, and as long as you can lie to your penis it will still stand at attention and do it's duty even though it would rather...I can't remember the punchline.

Woah! I remember this story from last summer, actually. This is from very close to where I live. The boyfriend thing is a new development, but I never knew the guy, and I can't say I'm shocked. There are a lot of churches around here, and the gossip that comes out of them is predictable. I'm still waiting on one of my old pastors as well as a music minister to come out.

Calmamity: Michelle Bachmann is dead?!


Look... I'm willing to admit that Alabama has done a lot wrong, but don't you dare pin the Bachmanns on us. That is totally not us.

Voiceofreason01: "Not long after his release, he took a paid leave of absence from his job as Children and Families Pastor and the Facilities Director at First Baptist in Homewood, Alabama..."

Baptist! Called it!


Most of Alabama is Southern Baptist or Methodist, so it's a good call.

At least it didn't poison a tree.

I'm shocked Trussville/Argo/Springville hasn't landed on Fark just yet. Heck, I don't even recall Larry Langford making Fark.

Captain Dan: TopoGigo: Captain Dan: This is exactly what Prop 8 was designed to prevent.

I have you labelled as right-wing but sane. As such, I choose to believe this post is satire.

I realize that it's impossible on the internet to parody extremists, but I thought this was over-the-top enough that nobody would think that anyone could believe it.

For the record, it was a throwaway joke.  I'm a Republican, but I opposed Prop 8 and support gay marriage.


If you're relatively sane, why be a republican? What on this earth is attractive enough about them to want to be one? Honest question. I cannot understand it.

I mean, what is the attraction, honestly?
