Stone Dead

Officials in the southeast Asian country of Brunei must think things have gotten too lax in their neck of the woods.  Reportedly nobody has been put to death in Brunei since 1957, but that's gonna change with the new penal code that's kicking in next week.

If you have gay sex you will be sentenced to death by stoning.  If you commit adultery, rape, murder, insult the Quran, declare yourself a prophet or declare yourself a non-Muslim--allegedly all these varied offenses will result in death by stoning.

Such a panoply of sins.  If you're a gay Christian schizophrenic, best to cross Brunei off your list.

Hate Goes North

Peter LaBarbera is wildly anti-gay.  He's the president of "Americans for Truth About Homosexuality," a group whose members wouldn't know truth if it danced naked in front of them.  And maybe it should.

Anyway, yesterday LaBarbera flew to Regina, Saskatchewan, to give a speech at the Saskatchewan Pro-Life Association convention.  But the Canadian Border Service Agency decided to deny him entry to the country because he's a purveyor of "hate propaganda," a no-no under Canadian law.

That decision was reversed, however, and LaBarbera is now in Regina, presumably vilifying gays, per usual.  Perhaps he'll say something unforgivable that will get him chucked out of Canada for real, something Canadian authorities cannot tolerate--like hockey sucks.

Who Should Officiate?

As part of his "State of the City" speech today, Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer touted diversity. "One day I hope we are the city that hosts the state's first same-sex marriage," Dyer told his fellow citizens of the central Florida tourist mecca. "Love and commitment should be encouraged, celebrated and embraced as a constitutional right for all."

I suspect greater Orlando will indeed host the first same-sex marriage.  If the memes I've seen online of Cinderella romancing Snow White are anything to go by, the minute Florida legalizes gay marriage those two will have a fairy tale wedding.  In Cinderella's very own castle.

Another Sports First

Derrick Gordon had something to say today.  A starting guard for the University of Massachusetts, Gordon  is now the first active male Division I NCAA basketball player to come out as gay.   Asked by ESPN how he feels about going to opposing arenas now that he's broken this news, Gordon said,
"Hopefully I'll finally see a gay flag in the stands, which I ain't never seen before."

Well then.  You can reward Gordon for his bravery by flying the flag when he plays.  The UMass Minutemen are in the Atlantic 10 conference, which includes schools from Philadelphia to St. Louis.  Go to a game--even if you don't know a rebound from a rebate.
Derrick Gordon, a 22-year-old sophomore shooting guard for the University of Massachusetts Minutemen, came out of the closet as a gay man today, becoming the first active male NCAA Division I basketball player to do so. Gordon shared his story with Outsports and ESPN.

This Week's Quote

It was a good loo; whitewashed and compact with a flashlight hanging behind the door.  I smuggled books in here and read them in secret, claiming constipation.  That was risky because Mrs W was keen on suppositories and enemas.  But there is always a price to pay for your art . . .
