    PDA's (public displays of affection) are fine by me and should be encouraged. (hugging, kissing, holding hands, arms about each other etc.) but it's another matter altogether if people, and I don't really care what orientation said `people' consist of, are contravening laws which disallow nudity and `lewd' acts in _public_. There are some things better left to the privacy of behind closed doors.

    Well Logos, different culture means different norms and values

    Yes, even the same culture, just different time periods shows the ever changing views.

    ANd I guess to each their own.

    Two things: First, I enjoyed Basil's disturbing little gnome home.......I mean, who wouldn't??

    Secondly, Ya know, for some reason I think that 'gay pride' parades are a bit 'over the top. I don't really mind the display, but I ask myself why anyone would want to have a parade to showcase their sexual preferences? And then I remember "Marti GRAs', a fantastic hetersexual celebration/parade heralding (of all things) the beginning of the christian recognized period of 'Lent' . Yes, me thinks we live in very, VERY, strange times.....

    So, THAT's what pdas are...my son always talks about them on his MSN and I keep clenching my hands, oh whirl whirl whirl, what on earth is he talking about, what lewd, devious act is that?
    Now, I don't have to tell him I been sneeking and peeking on his computer. Thank u!
    I poured spot remover on my dog. Now he's gone.

    Maybe to make a point. I know it is 'in your face' (a lot) but maybe some people's homophobic attitudes and unbelievable notion that they can dictate other people's sexual preferences might be calling for such drastic measures.

    How about Rio carnival? It is even crazier that 'gay pride' parades but it is *mostly* beautiful girls in something barely more than small bikinis.

    I strongly disagree with all of these exhebitionist parades...If I wanted porn, I would go and buy it, I dislike having it forced on me.

    You surely don't have to go and watch them? With similar logic, one might say they s/he does not like watching porn so porn movies should be banned.

    And what's with all this wanton displaying of the flesh? Unnecessary and unseemly, if you ask me. We should all wear beekeeper's outfits.

    My point exactly, but of course the knots in my tongue made it come out much less succinct ...Thanks Sher. But How can I honestly like Rio Carnival, and yet dislike gay pride parades if I espouse equality for all people? I think I just discovered a chink in my moral armor......just call me Double Standard Boy....... *gotta get a costume to go with that*

    I think once the Church can openly discuss whether Jesus himself may or may not have been gay, then it will have 'grown up' and entered the 21st C.

    Personally, I think it cannot be ruled out. He liked to have plenty of men around him, none of his disciples were women; he was very tactile with men; he had called one of the disciples his beloved (note how this is said of only the one disciple). I think it is possible that Jesus may have been gay. He seems to show some homoerotic behaviours that, if observed in today's world, might make people wonder whether he was gay or not.

    Certainly the movement Jesus inspired has shown plenty of homosexual tendencies throughout history. Paul, when talking about marriage and women, sounds very gay. I mean he obviously preferred men to women.

    I mean, all those disciples leaving the comfort of their families and joining a merry band of men. It makes you wonder what they got up to doesn't it? Those nights in the desert can get so terribly cold...

    I keep getting a spam fowarded to me by people I know (all of them devout Christians) that includes a petition against a play (that I don't believe actually exists cause I can't find it on the net ) called corpus christi. It portrays Jesus & friends as gay and is verrrrrry bad and terrible! The spam says its going to be made into a film if I don't sign my name and forward it to everyone I know including the person who sent it to me . Does anyone know if this is for real, cause I would love to see the play.

    Yes, I WilKikU it is for real though I haven't received any such spam about it. I read about it months ago when Christians were demonstrating against it outside a theatre in Edinborough where it was being shown. It is called Corpus Christi, written by Terence McNally - and directed by Stephen Hendry though I suppose it depends on who is putting on the play, who it is directed by. I think it originated in America. My opinion is this..they wouldn't dare write a similar play about Mohammed. That would be blasphemy. But it's okay to say any old thing about Jesus it seems.
