So you've probably noticed this too: all these anti-gay politicans and evangelical pastors/leaders go on and on about the evils of homosexuality, passing laws and other bullshit only to THEN get caught banging another dude. Even, at times, young men (perhaps this is where the gay = pedophile thing comes from?)
I briefly skimmed the recent Evergreen talk (caution: talk will piss you off) where Bishop whatshisname said that we shouldn't use the terms "gay" "lesbian" or "homosexual" because "god doesn't think of [us] that way."
I'm going to leave the WTF silent and just assumed, here.
Anyway, you know that in the past the leaders "exhorted" their gay sheep to marry straight and all would be well. Not to mention the former subjection to electroshock therapy where--and I don't fucking GET this--showed the men gay pornography (i guess porn is only acceptable in this situation?) and then shocked the hell out of them as to teach them a righteous reaction to gay sex.
But now it's a matter of "just don't act gay." "it's not sin unless you fuck someone of your own gender"
(but in the dark corners they still say it's a matter of overcoming it)
So. With all of that in mind:
How many of the LDS leaders--I'm talking top leaders, here--do you think are closeted gay men? Who were? ARE?
I think there're probably a few, actually. Given what we've seen, they might be the most outspoken ones.
Spencer W. Kimball, perhaps? He of "if you rub one out you'll totally end up in a circle jerk with all your buddies and then have a big gay orgy" mentality?
All of that repression. All of that power.
Of course this is pure conjecture, but still:
What d'ya think?
