“I am 1000% in favour of gay marriage. We pay taxes, fight wars for this country, nurse you when you are sick, make you laugh, sing and dance for you, play netball for you, star in your movies, cook your meals, decorate your store windows and chances are gay people designed whatever it is you’re wearing,” she said.
“All Australians, including gay Australians, should have exactly the same rights including the right to love, marry and take care of our partners.
“The law as it stands means that you could be a serial killer and have killed all of your spouses and yet you would still be considered fit to marry. But if you are gay then you are not deemed to be worthy of these same rights.
“The law as it stands is unfair and it needs to be changed to reflect the wonderful, tolerant, live-and-let-live society Australians have created.”
THIS REALLY ROCKS.
Following his death a few of his friends and associates revealed that Father Mychal Judge was gay – as a matter of orientation rather than practice, as he was a celibate priest. According to fire commissioner Thomas Von Essen: “I actually knew about his homosexuality when I was in the Uniformed Firefighters Association. I kept the secret, but then he told me when I became commissioner five years ago. He and I often laughed about it, because we knew how difficult it would have been for the other firemen to accept it as easily as I had. I just thought he was a phenomenal, warm, sincere man, and the fact that he was gay just had nothing to do with anything.”
The revelations about Judge’s sexual orientation were not without controversy, however. Dennis Lynch, a lawyer, wrote an article about Judge that appeared on the website [catholic.org]. Lynch claimed that the priest was not gay and that any attempt to define him as gay was due to “homosexual activists” who wanted to “attack the Catholic Church” and turn the priest into “a homosexual icon”.
Others refuted Lynch’s claims with evidence that Judge did, in fact, identify himself as gay, both to others and in his personal journals.
Judge was a long-term member of Dignity, a Catholic LGBT activist organization that advocates for change in the Catholic Church’s teaching on homosexuality. On October 1, 1986, the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith issued an encyclical, On the Pastoral Care of Homosexual Persons, which declared homosexuality to be a “strong tendency ordered toward an intrinsic moral evil”. In response, many bishops, including John Cardinal O’Connor, banned Dignity from diocesan churches under their control. Father Judge then welcomed Dignity’s AIDS ministry to the Church of Saint Francis of Assisi, which is under the control of the Franciscan friars, thereby partially circumventing the cardinal’s ban of Dignity.
Judge disagreed with official Roman Catholic teaching regarding homosexuality, though by all accounts he remained celibate. Judge often asked, “Is there so much love in the world that we can afford to discriminate against any kind of love?”
OF COURSE NOT. THEY WILL SAY IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH HIS JOB. I SAY HE IS CEO OF THE BIGGEST AND MOST POWERFUL COMPANY IN THE WORLD. IF HE WAS BLACK YOU CAN BEAT YOUR SWEET ASS THE MEDIA WOULD BE PUTTING THAT IN THEIR STORIES. BUT THE MEDIA LIKE THE CLOSET FOR PEOPLE IN THE SPOT LIGHT. IT HAS BEEN THAT WAY FOR YEARS AND THEY HAVE NOT KEPT UP WITH CHANGES IN THE WORLD. IT ALSO CONTINUES THE MYTH THAT EVERYONE IS STRAIGHT, AS THEY DON’T COME OUT AS OFTEN THE CORPORATE ENVIRONMENT IS HOSTILE TO OUT GAY MEN.
JUST FOUND THIS WONDERFUL QUOTE…….
When you tell us it’s wrong to report on gay public figures, you are telling gays not to come out of the closet and journalists not to report the truth.
WE CANNOT BE INVISIBLE ANYMORE. HIS SEXUALITY IS APART OF THE STORY. TELL IT.
He was a truck load hotter when he was younger, it has to be said. But who the fuck would believe Angelina????
Jersey Shore’s Angelina suggested that Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino might be gay in an interview with 107.5 WZKL:
“I didn’t have sex with him but to be honest with you, to get a girl riled up to the point where you want to have sex, he doesn’t even know how to do that. I honestly feel like he’s in the closet right now, he doesn’t want to come out…He’s lame, he’s not all that. Ladies he’s not all that…He doesn’t even know what he’s doing. He’s like a dead fish. He just sits there…You never know these days. More power to him if he’s gay.”
