The Church, Homosexuality and Beer?!?

Friends,  (**WARNING**: If you click the link to this story, and you are a Christian, you are likely to be highly offended at the picture that is shown about half-way down the page. You’ve been warned.)

I don’t even know where to begin with this story. It involves, again, Bill Donohue of the Catholic League and something referred to as the ‘Folsom Street Fair.’ I am simply aghast. I really don’t know which is worse: That the Folsom Street Fair features people making mockery of the Christian faith:

The annual street event, which includes displays of nudity and sexual activity, is scheduled for Sept. 30. It describes its mission as organizing “world-class volunteer driven leather events, providing the adult alternative lifestyle community safe venues for self-expression, emphasizing freedom, fun and frolic, while raising money to benefit San Francisco charities.”

Or that fact that Mr. Donohue is concerned because Miller Brewing company is a sponsor of the event.

Responding to pressure from Christian groups, the Miller Brewing Co. is asking organizers of a “gay” street celebration in San Francisco to remove its logo from a promotional poster portraying Jesus Christ and his disciples as “half-naked homosexual sadomasochists.”

I’m not sure, seriously, why Mr Donohue cares that a Beer company is advertising at this festival. Is Mr Donohue threatening Miller Brewing by intimating that if they don’t stop advertising all the Christian Beer drinkers out there might stop drinking their beer? Well, it appears so:

Donohue said Miller’s subsidy of the “Sisters” could prompt a boycott and further exposure of what the event is all about, including photographs from recent years.  “This is the most morally depraved, bigoted segment of gay population,” Donohue said of the anti-Catholic group.

And yet, homosexuals want to be included as part of the orthodox church of Jesus Christ. They want to be included as a normal representation of something lovely because it involves love. Now I know that not all homosexuals are involved in this fair, and not all of them are ‘Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence.’ Still, this is homosexuality. It is rather difficult to make a distinction between one group and the other.

Anyhow, I guess this means, for all you Christians out there, that you should stop drinking Miller Beer (as if any of us do anyhow; can you say, ‘Bud’?) But all joking aside, it is stuff like this that persuades people like me that homosexuality is exactly what we’ve been saying it is: Sin. As such, it has no place whatsoever in the church.

PS–Just for the record, I do agree with Mr. Donohue. This is quite an abomination. I just don’t think calling for only Miller Brewing to remove its ad is the best idea since there are obviously many others advertising on the bottom of the post. Still, I am glad that he is out there drawing people’s attention to the obscenity and perversion that is homosexualism in America. On the other hand, this is similar to the KG case. We may not like what they are saying, but in America, God Bless her, they have a right to say it. I just wish so many people would quit listening.

    Freedom of speach is one thing but when ones freedom imposes on anothers freedoms under the same constitution then we have to have restraints. Especially when freedom of speach is used for vulgarity and perversion. As humans and adults we should know that restraint on such things is not keeping someone from exercising his right to sexual preferance it is respecting the rights of others not to be exposed to such vulgarity. What these people want to do in the privacy of their own homes is one thing but open displays and parades of such devient behavior is an infringment on the rest of society and the protection of our families. If these people don’t want me to complain about their behavior then they need to keep it private and not displayed in public. This is becoming the downfall of this country and the rest of us are sitting back doing nothing. It’s time to take action.
