An Unacceptable Hate Crime


Sean White and Mathew Peters recently received something less than a Christmas present, namely the word "faggots" carved into their apartment door in Denver.

Here's what they posted on the door in response:

"To the individual who scrawled the word “faggots” into our door:  We regret to inform you that you completely failed to use glitter paint and/or sequins, your work looked rushed, and your handwriting was positively atrocious.  It is for these reasons that we have removed your work from our door with sandpaper.  Fabulously yours, the gays in apt. 611."

That'll teach 'em to mess with Apt. 611.

It Made Me Blanche

The folks at LGBT television channel LOGO sent out an email this morning to announce their Christmas Eve programming.   Tonight they're dreaming of a white Christmas, they teased--and that turned out to mean a Betty White Christmas, in the form of a "Golden Girls" marathon.

I want it to Bea known that I Rue the day I'd stoop to such punnery.

Pickups No, Subarus Yes

I work in a small, all-female office.  There were three of us in this morning, all gay.  The boss, Ann, asked Leah and me if we have have access to a truck, because she needs to move some furniture.  I said no.  Leah said no.

"What kind of lesbians are we?" I asked aloud.

"The Outback-driving kind," Leah responded.

What I Wouldn't Give for Jacob Marley's Ghost

Pastor Steven Anderson went giddily viral this week.  Preaching on the eve of World AIDS Day, the leader of Tempe's Faithful Word Baptist Church declared that gays are "filled with disease because of the judgement of God."

Anderson sermonized that "if you executed the homos like God recommends, you wouldn't have all this AIDS running rampant."  With this Leviticus-inspired "cure," said Anderson, "we can have an AIDS-free world by Christmas."

It's that time of year when THEY come out.  You know, the ones whose hearts are two sizes too small.

Enter an organization called Planting Peace, which has experience with Grinches, having created the rainbow-colored Equality House across from Fred Phelps' Westboro Baptist Church.  Planting Peace intends to raise money to help people with HIV/AIDS.  For every donation, Planting Peace will send a lump of coal to Anderson.

All the coal will be delivered to his Arizona church on Christmas Eve.  Ah yes, Christmas Eve, when Ebenezer Scrooge's tale takes place.  Ebenezer Scrooge, the Grinch, Steven Anderson.  They're the miserable Christmas trinity.

The first two, however, were redeemed.  Since it's making him famous, I don't see Anderson parting with his vitriol.  At least, not until he gets a heavenly visitor or is outed.  Either will do.
