Henry Rollins

If I was gay, there would be no closet, you would never see the closet I came out of. Why? I would have burned it for kindling by the time I was 12. Because I know with all certainty in my mind, there is nothing wrong with being gay, and you know it.

You always know the mark of a coward. A coward hides behind freedom. A brave person stands in front of freedom and defends it for others.

Don’t hide behind the Constitution or the Bible. If you’re against gay marriage just be honest, put a scarlet ‘H’ on your shirt and say ‘I am a homophobe!’


Ten Things…

Ten things I wish the church knew about homosexuality:
1) If Jesus did not mention a subject, it cannot be essential to his teachings.
2) Truth isn’t like wine that gets better with age> It’s more like manna you must recognize whenever you are and whoever you are with.
4) You cannot call it special rights when someone asks for the same rights you have.
5) It is no longer your personal religious view if you’re bothering someone else.
6) Marriage is a civil ceremony, which means it’s a civil right.
If you someone stimulates a public nerve has become the needle in your moral compass, you are the one who is lost.
8) To condemn homosexuality, you must use parts of the Bible you don’t yourself obey. Anyone who obeyed every part of Leviticus would rightly be put in prison.
9) If we do not do the right thing in our day, our grandchildren will look at us with the same embarrassment we look at racist grandparents.
10) When Jesus forbade judging, that included you.
