Here is the latest from the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette: “Jurors on Friday found evangelist Tony Alamo guilty on all 10 counts of transporting five young girls across state lines for sex.

The jury of nine men and three women found Alamo guilty of transporting girls as young as 9, in violation of a nearly century-old federal law. He was accused in a 10-count indictment. Each count carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

The jury returned a verdict shortly after entering its second day of deliberations. The seven-day trial included testimony from Alamo’s accusers for the prosecution, and his common-law wife and a mother of an accuser for the defense.”

HBO Documentary Takes a Look at the Range of Gender and Sexuality; Also Finds Homophobes Likely Hiding Homosexual Attractions

Kinsey ScaleAlfred Kinsey first introduced the Kinsey Scale, which said that a person’s sexuality fit somewhere on a range from 0 (exclusively heterosexual) to 6 (exclusively homosexual), way back in the 1940s. Of course, the deniers , groups like Focus on the Family and other religious organizations, continue with their ignorant tirades against this.

HBO’s documentary, Middle Sexes: Redefining He and She, explores this rainbow of sexuality. From the synopsis: “Researchers cite examples from the natural world, where species display a wide range of sexual variation, and point out that humans show more diversity than the strict male-female dichotomy.” This will certainly bring about more shouts from those who are determined that only 100% heterosexuality is natural.

One of the most telling segments takes a look at homophobia and suggests as many others have before: that many homophobes are really just repressed homosexuals. Take a look at the clip:

Another Ted Haggard and New Life Ministries Scandal Revealed; Haggard Is “Out” (?) Promoting the HBO Documentary about His Earlier Sexcapes; Shouldn’t He Be Singing Brittney Spears’ “Oops, I Did It Again”?

Ted Haggard was having more than one “piece” of cake while “eating” it too, according to sources at his former church, New Life Ministries, in Colorado Springs.

It seems that about the same time as he was having his meth and sex liasons with gay call boy, Mike Jones, he also was having an on-going relationship with a 20-something parishioner of the mega evangelical church in Colorado. According to reports, the church kept the story of Haggard’s and the young man’s relationship hushed up by giving the church member money for college and counseling.

Colorado’s News Channel 13 has been a investigation of the Haggard and New Life Ministries scandal for the past two years. Recently, the young church member Haggard was involved has come forward to talk with the TV investigators and reveal recorded conversation between him and the former preacher.
