Guillermo Diaz, Huck on Scandal, on being out in Hollywood:
“I don’t even think about it, I’m an actor. I’ve been out since I started acting and I’ve worked my whole life. I think people get too caught up in it. I don’t stress about it. If somebody doesn’t want to work with me because I’m gay, I don’t want to work with them either.”
I have that same view about people who may not like me because I’m gay: I wouldn’t want to be your friend anyway.
Still, who knew Huck was gay!??!
Gene Robinson, openly gay retired Episcopal Bishop, on the religious-based opposition to ENDA:
"Can you imagine what Jesus might have said to St. Peter if the disciple had requested an exemption from Jesus' command to "love your enemies?!" What if disciples James and John had argued with Jesus about whether or not "love your neighbor as yourself" actually should apply to them in all cases? What would Jesus have said to the good, religious people of his time when they asked for an exemption to Jesus' command to "love one another as I have loved you," based of course upon their deeply-held, religious beliefs? ... I don't know what he would have said. But the shortest verse in all of scripture probably describes what he would have done upon hearing their request: 'Jesus wept.'"
And yet people still try to make that Jesus hates fags argument stick.
Bryan Fischer, American Family Association spokesbigot, saying that instead of phasing out trans fats we should phase out The Gays:
"Even though [trans fats] makes your frosting taste better, your doughnuts taste better, makes your crackers taste better, and improves their texture, their shelf stability, [the FDA] believe its bad for you. Bad for your heart. That's their conviction, the FDA. So we've got to ban it because it is bad for human health. Well if we were going to take that same reasoning, we would ban homosexuality. It is a hazard to human health."
Bryan, you closeted homo, show me ONE case where being gay has caused heart disease, diabetes, obesity or death.
George Clooney, on his beef with Russell Crowe:
“He picked a fight with me. He started it for no reason at all. He put out this thing saying, ‘George Clooney, Harrison Ford and Robert De Niro are sellouts’…He really went after me. And so I sent him a note going, ‘Dude, the only people who succeed when two famous people are fighting is People magazine. What the f-ck is wrong with you?”
What’s wrong with Russell Crowe is that his career looks nothing like Clooney’s or Ford’s or De Niro’s and he’s a jealous little man.
Kaniela Ing, Hawaiian Representative, at last week’s marriage equality debate:
"Some testifiers have spoken about this bill ushering in an onslaught of 'gay lifestyle'. And they challenged your committee members: 'Mr. Speaker — would you wish homosexuality upon your own kids?' … So I really thought about this. If the gay lifestyle they speak of pertains to the highly successful physicians, attorneys, economists, a world-renowned microbiologist and psychologist that we've seen testify — if this gay lifestyle pertains to the inspiringly committed couples who have been together for decades but are still viewed as strangers in the eyes of their government, if this gay lifestyle that they're referring to pertains to these brave people boldly standing in the face of hate to fight for equal rights for all — if that's what the gay agenda will bring — if that's how my gay children will be … then hey, sign me up. I'll take three.”
Bravo, Mr. Ing; bravo.
Angela Lansbury, on the planned reboot of Murder, She Wrote:
“I think it’s a mistake to call it Murder, She Wrote, because Murder, She Wrote will always be about a Cabot Cove and this wonderful little group of people who told those lovely stories and enjoyed a piece of that place, and also enjoyed Jessica Fletcher, who is a rare and very individual kind of person. So I’m sorry that they have to use the title Murder, She Wrote, even though they have access to it and it’s their right.”
Someone needs to build a bridge and get over it.
Gavin MacLeod, AKA Captain Stubing on The Love Boat, telling Bryan Fischer’s anti-gay American Family Association that the show's theme song is about coming to Jesus:
"'Love exciting and new, come aboard, he's expecting you'. If you listen to the lyrics it's all about Jesus. It's a whole new approach to that song. I do that whenever I get into a group of believers, because it gave me - I said, wow, the Lord didn't tell me about that until how many years we were off the air. And it's really about 'Come aboard, Jesus will take care of you. There's a new love waiting for you. A love that will never let you down'."
Um, Gavin? Maybe you spent one too many nights closing up the bar with Isaac because the line of the song actually says, "Love. Exciting and new. Come aboard, we're expecting you."
So don’t try to turn schlock in Bible passages, that’s already been done.
