Skip to comments.Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Ex-Gay Cowboys (homosexuality is incurable, etc.)
Posted on 02/10/2006 1:14:33 PM PST by presidio9
gay cowboys try, as best they can, to quit one another. They marry women, start families. But their wives are crushed when they realize their husbands don't, and can't, ever really love them. "Brokeback Mountain" makes clear that it would have been better for all concerned if Jack and Ennis had lived in a world where they could simply be together.
Straight audiences are watching and loving "Brokeback Mountain" that's troubling to evangelical Christians who have invested a decade and millions of dollars promoting the notion that gay men can be converted to heterosexuality, or become "ex-gay." It is, they insist, an ex-gay movement, although I've never met a gay man who was moved to join it.
This "movement" demands more from gay men than simply playing straight. Once a man can really pass as ex-gay once he's got some Dockers, an expired gym membership and a bad haircut he's supposed to become, in effect, an exgay missionary, reaching out to the hostile gay tribes in such inhospitable places as Chelsea and West Hollywood.
What should really trouble evangelicals, however, is this: even if every gay man became ex-gay tomorrow, there still wouldn't be an ex-lesbian tomboy out there for every ex-gay cowboy. Instead, millions of straight women would wake up one morning to discover that they had married a Jack or Ennis.
Sometimes I wonder if evangelicals really believe that gay men can go straight. If they don't think Chad Allen can play straight convincingly for 108 minutes, do they honestly imagine that gay men who aren't actors can play straight for a lifetime? And if anyone reading this believes that gay men can actually become exgay men, I have just one question for you: Would you want your daughter to marry one?

"Straight audiences are watching and loving Brokeback Mountain'.
I don't believe it.
I've heard all the straight men depicted in the movie look like redneck savages and the only good people are the gays.
Who would enjoy that?
I'm not sure, but I think a woman should think twice before marrying an "ex-gay" man. Too many cases of these folks reverting back to their old ways.
Some might make a long-term change, but I haven't seen all that many who have been ex-gay for more than a few years. Maybe I'm missing some, though.
I'd sure be cautious, though, if I were a woman.
Liberal women who are f*g hags...and gay men.
The anti Christian biase of this reporti s dripping from the page. I will dance when I here of this lying liberal legacy dead tree media source closing shop.
I thought it was gonna be an article about Troy Aikman.
What are the actual sales on this tripe?
****Straight audiences are watching and loving "Brokeback Mountain" ***
They are?? Gee in my neighborhood they just laugh when its mentioned and make some sort of fag joke.
More leftist, agenda-promoting trash from the NYT. ping
Doesn't Dan Savage write sex columns in alternative weeklies?
"I thought it was gonna be an article about Troy Aikman."
The metrosexuals luv, luv, luv it.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Same thing about trying to quit bothering the sheep, I suspect.
Ewe, get my point?
When the Academy Awards are over in a month, this movie will fall into obscurity. And it may not even win, some Hollywood people are uncomfortable with it. Even Bill Maher indicated to O'Reilly he wasn't interested and actually seemed embarrassed by the topic!
about 83 million now.
The movie finally comes out and preaches the old wisdom: Gay men will go after straight man and bring 'em over to the other side, and make 'em "Go Gay". You don't have to be born that way. In fact, it is never established if the gay guy was born that way or had "gone gay" sometime before the movie's start.
I was wondering if he pronounces his last name "Thavage."
Gay cowboys 83 million.
Narnia 637.8 million
Knowing that you raised you're kids to be Christians and not fornicators? Priceless.
Straight liberals, no doubt.
Total BS. People are being cajoled into seeing it because of all the pro-gay press. The five films nominated for Best Picture (or really Best Portrayer of Lies and Filth) have the lowest total gross of any five films in 20 years. No one is seeing this movie.
This author is just hoping that his hunting lease will always be stocked with other self-abusers.
I guess there are people out there with no Gaydar.
I have skimmed over the IMDB message board for this movie. They watch it over and over, some going 15 times and more. And they are very rude to anyone to doesn't sing its praises, calling them homophobes, trolls, right-wing wackos, etc. automatically.
Uh....that should read "gay SHEEP HERDERS!"
Let's all sit and be lectured by this puke....
"Doesn't Dan Savage write sex columns in alternative weeklies?"
Some of the columns would be unprintable in flyover country.
I think it's hilarious that now it's the homosexual community that adheres to the old "c*cks*cker rule -- s*ck one c*ck and you'll aways be a c*cks*cker." Mostly because they want everyone who's ever had a homosexual experience (however young and forced) to somehow "count" as gay and to think of themselves as irretrievably homosexual. Faugh! Stuff and Nonsense!
I don't believe it either. Has anyone seen the numbers on the box office take for Brokeback Mountain?
Not where I live they aint!
And yours is finely tuned, right?
If ones sexual habits cannot be changed.... then why oh why do we allow all sex offenders i.e., rapists, child molestors etc. parole at all?
Or are we just playing PC games?
Internet Movie Bondage Domination? (I think you mean IMDB Internet Movie Data Base)
Yup right on Dan that's what the gays want,nice stable families.
I wonder than way HIV and a host of other sexual transmitted diseases are on the rise in homosexuals?
Why is it Dan that these "settling down" types have hundreds of partners in a given year?
Tell me Dan, why does the average homosexual only live to the rip old of age of 50?
Why don't you write a column on the destructive behavior of homosexuals, instead of this filthy propaganda?
It's the movie site run by Yahoo, International Movie Data Base. Quite interesting source actually!
How's that for TOLERANCE?
Instead, millions of straight women would wake up one morning to discover that they had married a Jack or Ennis.
Ooooh, so when gay guys stay gay, that's an act of generosity to women, right? OK...
Obviously, some witty, bitchy gay guy wrote this...
I would fear my daughter getting the bug or some other queer infliction. I have done a good job raising my 5 they are more intolerant of queers than I am.
I cannot name one person I personally know that has seen the movie. The closest theatre that would show it is close to 2 hours away.
Oops...got the letters mixed up, I like your interpretation though!
Thanks, I'll check it out.
The movie is a loser but to hear H'weird and the distributors tell the story the movie is HUGE hit. The lies coming out of H'weird make me sick. Most of the money was made in CA when first released. What's mandatory but not told is that ALL movies for candidacy to the Academy Awards MUST be open in Los Angeles, without exception. In 9 weeks, the movie, according to H'weird, grossed $60 million nationwide. I don't see that as a runaway hit. Compare that movie the Jedi movies or "The Passion of the Christ" and you'll see it's not that big of a moneymaker. H'weird won't survive on that pittance.
Make no mistake as to what is going on here. Christians are being driven to the margins of society. The financial attacks on the Catholic church in court is just the beginning.
Soon it will be a matter of "hate" crime for Chrisitans to talk about sins like sodomy. Law suits launched by the ACLU and others are coming.
Christian churches are being burned in Alabama. NBC, a national over the air network is planning a program on Holy Thursday which makes fun of Christ's suffering and death.
Pat Robertson can't open his mouth without the national press all over his words. Yet they won't cover controversial statements of men like Julian Bond.
Make no mistake where this is going. In fifty years the open practice of Christianty will be dead.
Their tale is told in BrokeMac Mountain!
It has made over four times its cost ($14 million). A movie doesn't have to be Star Wars to be financially successful, and this movie has been.
Below lists a runaway hit:
"Narnia" has grossed more than $637.8 million at the worldwide boxoffice. Internationally, it ranks as Buena Vista's top-grossing live-action release of all time, surpassing "Armageddon" and "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl" with its gross to date of $359.4 million. The film has grossed $278 million domestically and is the studio's third-highest-grossing live-action film. It is on track to surpass "Pirates' " worldwide gross of $655 million to become Buena Vista's all-time top live-action grosser. The movie also received three Oscar nominations Tuesday.
This doofus hasn't a clue what evangelicals think. Nor is he even trying. But he is openly lying when he makes the statement that evangelicals have invested a decade and millions of dollars promoting the notion. No! The notion was a gift from all those mothers and fathers who brought us into this world. And it is simply an observtion that all men, as all women, are born with heterosexual biology.
Our money is simply being spent trying to stop liberals like him from scamming the courts into betraying the will of the people by legislating the gay political agenda from the bench.
Yes, he is a filthy pervert.
