  1. I love watching straight people at weddings dancing and singing to the Village People's "YMCA" not having a clue what they are really singing about.

  2. PLEASE ACT NOW EVOLVE POLITICS: text labour to 78555 and vote for Jeremy Corbyn, Policy: Scrap Trident, Scrap 0 hours, Close corporate tax loopholes, Fight poverty not the poor. Checkout  #JezWeCan  for more info!

  3. Don't know why you even bothered to show the clip at 2:45 it's disgustingly inaccurate representation of homosexuals. Extremely offensive. Homosexuals do not seek out children pedophiles do.

  4. Why the fuck was Jimmy given probation? He didn't do anything wrong. It's not his fault he was being groomed by a pedophile.

  5. I Corinthians 6:9:
    The passage: In his first epistle to the church at Corinth, Paul lists many activities that he believes will prevent people from inheriting the Kingdom of God (heaven). Robertson's Word Studies refers to this passage as: "a solemn roll call of the damned even if some of their names are on the church roll in Corinth whether officers or ordinary members." 1
    Unfortunately, the Greek original from which many English language Bibles have been translated, is ambiguous about two of the groups who are condemned.
    The King James Version of the Bible translates verse 9 and 10 as:
    "Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God." (Emphasis ours)
    This verse has been translated in many ways among the 25 English versions of the Bible that we have analyzed. Unfortunately, many of the translations do not differentiate between:
    Persons who are sexually attracted to others of the same-sex, but who are celibate and do not act on their desire, and
    Persons who are are sexually active and who act on their sexual attraction to others of the same sex.
    The two activities of interest — shown above in bold — have been variously translated as:
    effeminate (KJV, NASB): In the English language, this covers a wide range of male behavior such as being unmanly, lacking virility. One might think of the characters "John," the receptionist on NYPD Blue, or "Jack" on Will and Grace.
     
    homosexuals, variously described as:
    "men who practice homosexuality," (ESV);
    "those who participate in homosexuality," (Amplified);
    "abusers of themselves with men," (KJV);
    "practicing homosexuals," (NET Bible). This translation would refer only to persons with a homosexual or bisexual orientation who is sexually active with persons of the same sex. It would not include persons who are sexually attracted to persons of the same sex, but who are celibate.
    "homosexuals," (NASB, CSB, NKJ, NLT, The Great Book: The New Testament in Plain English); 
    "homosexual perversion," (NEB); 
    "homosexual offenders," (NIV);
    "liers with mankind," (Rhiems); and
    "homosexual perverts." (TEV)
    "passive homosexual partners." (NET Bible)
    Although "homosexual" is a very common translation, it is almost certain to be inaccurate:  
    If Paul wanted to refer to homosexual behavior, he would have used the word "paiderasste." That was the standard Greek term at the time for sexual behavior between males.
     
    The second term is "arsenokoitai" in Greek. The exact meaning of this word is lost. It seems to have been a term created by Paul for this verse. "Arsen" means "man" in Greek. So there is no way that "arsenokoitai" could refer to both male and female homosexuals. It seems that the English translators gave in to the temptation to widen Paul's condemnation to include lesbians as well as gay males.
    Unfortunately, the term "homosexual" is commonly defined in two different ways: as a behavior (engaging in same-sex activity) or as a sexual orientation (being sexually attracted only to members of the same sex). Most of the biblical translations appear to refer to behavior rather than orientation.

    male prostitutes, also described as "men kept for unnatural purposes." The term "male prostitutes" (NIV, NRSV, CSB, NLT) can be interpreted in modern times as men who are paid to have sex with men only or with women only or with men or women. Again, the original Greek appears to refer only to male-male contact.
     
    catamites, or boy prostitute. This is a young male — often a slave — who is kept as a sexual partner of an adult male. (Jerusalem Bible, NAB, James Moffatt). These translations provide another example of a theme that runs throughout the Bible: the transfer of guilt and punishment from guilty perpetrators to innocent persons.
     
    pederasts: male adults who sexually abuse boys; an abusive pedophile (an adult who molests young children) or abusive hebephile (an adult who molests post-pubertal teenagers).
     
    perverts: a person engaged in some undefined activity that is one of the dozens of sexual activities that some consider to be perversions. (Phillips, The Great Book: The New Testament in Plain English)
     
    sodomites: This used to refer to inhabitants of the city of Sodom which is described in Genesis 19. It is now used as a "snarl" word to refer to men who have sex with men. InGenesis 19, the men of the city appear to want to anally rape some male angels who were visitors to Sodom. Many Christians interpret this as a blanket condemnation of all homosexual behavior, whether rape or consensual; whether a one-night stand or within a committed relationship; whether manipulative or mutually agreeable; whether by two men or two women. (NRSV, NKJ, NAB).
     
    other terms:
    The Message refers to "Those who … use and abuse sex," which is probably the broadest translation ever, and would include a very large percentage of the human population.

    BBE translates it as "or is less than a man, or makes a wrong use of men."

  6. Yes, Ralph was terrrrible. I like the "aggressive homosexual" in the suit as eyeing his "prey". Yeah! After all, we have a real big problem with gay crime in America since 1959-'61 since the "propapromo" was released. Now, what the crime stats on gays compared to the bigger problem we have with heterosexual assault and rape from many Bible people in the military? Seems the morale and cohesion problem isn't a so much a gay one.

  7. "Ralph was arrested, and Jimmy was placed on probation…" WTF! Why? Oh, I see, "Well, you are younger, Jimmy, but you were a naughty little boy!"

  8. Ralph was arrested…..and got the death penalty in 1960 ! Sounds ridiculous ? ….Well, that is exactly what is happening in places like Uganda, Iran and Saudi Arabia in 2015 to gay people there !

  9. Check out the movie BOOTS MALONE. It's practically a romance between William Holden's character and a young skinny jockey boy. I could n't believe it!

  10. I'm gay and being gay not a sickness but hate is… We gays love.hurt.care and love everyone and always a best friends too and yes love my Dolly Parton and We gays pray too God and God made us all God looks in your heart for kindness and not being str8 or gay but love God and his son Jesus and love yourself as you love others!

  11. "not without discussing it with his parents or teacher…" Geeze ! It was the teachers that seduced ME !

  12. This is for Virgilio C. Homosexuality is not a gender identity issue. It is when one sex is attracted to the same sex. I am a gay man, but I know I am a man.

  13. Myth: Homosexuality is a sexual problem, and the homosexuality is normal in every way except for his or her sexual preference.
    Reality: Homosexuality is not a problem with sexual behaviour – it is basically a gender identity problem.

  14. What's the point of some of these comments? Ralphs do exist exactly like in the Jimmy episode; homosexuals have to cop to it, just as heteros will freely admit that grown men and women try to seduce girls and boys (respectively) also…..

  15. Back then a Gay Pride parade actually meant something. Now days it's just a reason for most of the gays to get out there and get half naked and strut about to give the news media something to show on the 6 o'clock news. That way people who don't want to take the time to find out the truth can continue to believe that all gays are like the ones they see in the gay pride parades, sex pots and flamboyant drag queens. The news rarely ever shows the gays out there who are actually fighting and care about gay rights, like the people in this parade were doing.

  16. "……Mom, he's making eyes at me….." what's the name if that song and where can I find it. It's trippy and cool, revealing and funny (good funny). If anyone knows, please hook me up. Thank you gentle folks out there in YouTubeLand.

  17. First sentance Ive deleted as I find it too repulsive. Which is why normal people find it repulsive

  18. Un documento muy interesante que incluye escenas gays en cine de una época impensada, "circa" 1930.Lo hubiera preferid subtitulado en español o italiano
