Latest On Hollywood Publicist Murder In Beverly Hills...

Police investigating the killing of Ronni Chasen have assembled a working theory of what happened to the veteran Hollywood publicist and believe the Beverly Hills attack was planned in advance and not the result of road rage or a carjacking gone awry, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

According to a Beverly Hills city official who was briefed by Police Chief David Snowden, the department's working theory centers on shots being fired out of another vehicle that pulled up next to the passenger side of Chasen's Mercedes-Benz around 12:30 a.m. Tuesday. It is believed the shooting occurred either as Chasen made a left turn from Sunset Boulevard onto Whittier Drive, or just after the turn was made. Her black E350 coupe traveled southward on Whittier until it crashed into a light pole at Greenway Drive, deploying the driver side airbag. It is believed the shots shattered the passenger side window.

Despite suspicion that the late-night shooting was planned, it remains unclear whether Chasen was personally targeted in the incident or why she might have been the target.

Beverly Hills Police Sgt. Lincoln Hoshino said the investigation is "wide open" and the police department hasn't "focused on any specific motive or technique."

"We know it's not some sort of sniper shooting from across the street -- ridiculous theories we can discount," he said. "We haven't ruled anything out within reason."

Happy Friday!!!

Have a great weekend!
I will be traveling all day so my posts will only be a few!

Breaking: Teen Beaten & Burned To Death In Possible Gay Hate Crime...

Joshua Wilkerson, 18
Hermilio Moalez

A man charged in the murder of a Pearland teen told authorities he beat the victim to death and burned his body after the victim made sexual advances toward him.

Hermilio Moralez, 19, was charged Thursday with murder in the death of Joshua Wilkerson, 18.

Wilkerson’s body was found Wednesday night in an overgrown field in Fort Bend County after a 24-hour search.

ABC 13 in Houston reports:

Authorities now say that Joshua Wilkerson, 18, was beaten with a large wooden rod and that his body was burned. Hermilio Moralez, 19, is charged with murder in Wilkerson’s death. According to court documents, Wilkerson gave Moralez a ride home from school Tuesday and Moralez stated that Wilkerson began to make sexual advances towards him. Moralez said they got out of the truck and began to fight when Wilkerson grabbed a large wooden rod and tried to hit him. Moralez said he took the piece of wood from Wilkerson and began to hit him with it. He said Wilkerson was not moving afterwards.

Wtf? And why is he smiling in his mug shot?

23 Year Old Man Raped & Beaten In Ft. Lauderdale...

"Despite the horrifying attack, the 23-year-old performer is standing up and speaking out to local media.

Kevin Burns, who's performed under the name Kayden Daniels for online gay porn studios like and, spoke to CBS 4 in Fort Lauderdale (see below) after being raped, burned, and beaten last Friday night. Sources close to Burns say he's doing well, but is still shaken up.

A full panel of blood work was performed, and Burns was immediately put on antiretroviral medications following the unprotected assault, which included the use of a syringe. The local chapter of AHF is covering all of Burns' medical expenses.

The rapist is still at large, and in an effort to consider all possible suspects and motives, Burns disclosed his adult work to investigators today."

C.J. Spiller Apologizes For Gay Slur...

Buffalo Bills running back C.J. Spiller apologized for using an antigay slur against Eagles defensive end Ricky Sapp on Twitter.

On Wednesday Sapp tweeted, "How is everyone today?" to which Spiller responded, "Keep my name out of ur mouth fag," according toPro Football Talk. The post has since been deleted.

Though there is no indication as to what provoked the comment, Sapp told another Twitter user that he or she was beginning to "get on my bad side like @CJSPILLER" right before Spiller's tweet.

The rookie running back wrote Wednesday night, “I wanna apologize for using dat derogatory term to any1 that I may have offended I am truly sorry that was out of my character. God bless.”

I always love it when people say theses derogatory comments and then apologize by saying "it was out of my character". If it is out of your character then why did you say it? It's out of Character for me to steal, so i would not do it... Pretty simple...

Philadelphia Reaches A Possible Deal With Boy Scouts...

Philadelphia and the Cradle of Liberty Council Boys Scouts have reached a tentative settlement in which the city would stop trying to evict the scouts and sell the organization a city-owned building at a discounted price in order to end a longtime dispute.

The proposed settlement comes in response to a U.S. District Court jury verdict over the summer that found the city had violated the scouts’ First Amendment rights by attempting to evict the organization over its discrimination against gay members. Philadelphia had argued that the Boy Scouts, headquartered in the building near Logan Square, were in conflict with a city non-discrimination policy.

According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, “The city-owned building, which the scouts have occupied for 80 years, would be sold for $500,000. Both sides agree its appraised value is at least $1 million. In return, the scouts would not seek $1 million in compensation from Philadelphia that they are entitled to under federal law.”

Turkish Oil Wrestling A National Sport...


Turkish oil wrestling, the national sport in which men douse their bodies in olive oil and attempt to put their hands through their opponents' hand-stitched lederhosen, has won a place on UNESCO’s list of intangible cultural treasures.

According to Al Jazeera, the United Nations agency deemed the tradition, as practiced in the almost 650-year-old Kirkpinar festival, worthy of preservation, along with other obscure and better-known arts and rituals like Beijing Opera, Spanish flamenco, and French gastronomy.

Man Tattoos Penis On Mentally Disabled Mans Back...

When i first heard this story, i only heard that a man put a tattoo of a penis on his friends back as a joke, so i was thinking it was a frat type joke, not that is an excuse. But last night i was searching the web and saw this video about it and decided just to take a gander. I was disgusted. I had no idea that the guy whom the "friend" placed the tattoo on was bipolar and has a form of Autism. Wtf is wrong with that asshole? I have two nephews who have a form of autism called Aspergers, so this story is very upsetting...How do human beings treat each other like this?

Prop. 8 Arguments To Be Televised...

Cameras will be in the San Francisco courtroom of the ninth circuit court of appeals December 6 for oral arguments in the Proposition 8 federal appeal.

The American Foundation for Equal Rights reports that C-SPAN's request to televise the arguments was granted by the court; the proceedings will be broadcast live. Two video cameras will be permitted in the courtroom, and the arguments begin at 10 a.m. Pacific time.

"For too long the truth about marriage equality has been obscured by misleading political rhetoric," Chad Griffin, board president of AFER, said in a press release. "Our case is rooted in the principles of equality upon which our nation was founded and the Constitution's guarantee of equal protection under the law for every American, without exception. That case has already been proven conclusively in federal court, and now millions of Americans will be able to hear the truth about this issue first-hand."

Gay Republican Group, GOProud Defends Willow Palin....

I am not a big supporter of Republican gay groups such as GOProud. I do not dislike them, they are my fellow gay men and women. I just feel that they do a disservice to our cause and they are wasting their time supporting candidates that through the years have notoriously and openly discriminated against gay rights. (the documentary "Outrage". Anyone?) Now yes there are Democrats that have done the same, i.e. Clinton.  However on a whole we know which team supports us. Just stating MY opinion. Anyway below is the statement released by GOProud. I will comment after it.. 

Willow Palin is a 16 year old girl who, like all 16 year olds is going to make mistakes and say things she shouldn't have. This, however, has nothing to do with Willow Palin or the substance of what she said on Facebook. The ‘slur’ used here is one you could hear on the streets of West Hollywood or Chelsea every day of the week. Apparently, it’s only a ‘homophobic slur’ when it comes from the daughter of a conservative female leader. Make no mistake; this is all about destroying Sarah Palin by any means necessary.

The angry misogynistic left and their accomplices in the main stream media have been unable to take down Governor Palin - no matter how hard they have tried. Unable to take her down directly they now have decided to try to hurt her by attacking the most important thing in her life - her family.

Any person, gay or straight, who participates in this cheap political smear should be ashamed of themselves.

Ok for starters, they absolutely have a point as far as Faggot being heard in West Hollywood or Chelsea. It is true that gays use it with each other the same way that black people use the N word with each other and the way that other cultures use their own slurs with each other. Of course not all gays and blacks use these terms in their communities but there is a large amount that do. I also believe that I being a gay man, when my friends and i call one another a fag or faggot in a joking manner, then my straight friends can say it also. Just because i am gay does not give me carte-blanch to the word. If i use it in a none offensive way with MY friends then straight or gay, we can all use it. I feel the same about the N word, if you use it, than you have to be prepared for others to use it regardless of race. 

However, when either words are used with malice behind them or with the intent to inflict hurt, hate, discrimination or bigotry on someone than no, it it wrong to use those words. Period. I do not give words power to hurt me. I am the type of person that you can call me anything and it does not even phase me, because i know i am not those things when they are coming from a place of anger.

I do see both sides of this argument. Willow Palin is a teenage girl and we all have said and done things that were not so smart. But by the tone of the conversation she was having with this other boy, her comment was coming from a belittling, angry place. So she should not have choose that word. She was defending her Mother so i get it. If I only told you the things i have done over the years to defend my mother, oh child!

And lastly, to the GOProud, I think that children of politicians, under a certain age and if they are not seeking the spotlight themselves, should be left alone. I remember all those mean things they said about Chelsea Clinton. It is just wrong. As far as taking down ex-Governor Palin down ( lets remember she did not finish out her term) she is doing a good job with that all by herself. She needs no help in that area. She helped torpedo McCain's run because the people saw what a joke she really is...

By the way the photo above it all tongue and cheek...:)

Archbishop Compares Same Sex Marriage To Abortion...

Here we go again another dumbass catholic bishop saying stupid things...

In a speech to the United State Conference of Catholic Bishops, it’s newly elected vice president, Archbishop Joseph Kurtz of Louisville, compared same-sex marriage to abortion.

“In our nation we find ourselves at a moment of great opportunity but also great consequence,” Kurtz said. “The urgency of our priority to promote, protect and strengthen marriage has not abated.”

Kurtz added, “So, in a sense, today is like 1970 for marriage. If, in 1970, you knew that Roe v. Wade were coming in two or three years, what would you have done differently?”

In addition to he new duties as USCCB vice president, Kurtz is also chairman of the US bishops’ Ad Hoc Committee for the Defense of Marriage, and we a major funder for the anti- Marriage Equality referendum in Maine. He has in the past also made some pretty outrageous statements on same-sex marriage and gay rights and was one of the first signers of “Manhattan Declaration”, which called for Christians to disregard laws they don’t agree with."

Documentary Shows The Dangers Faced Being Gay In Non-Western Cultures...

On Nov. 2nd, the Office of Multi-Cultural Affairs, in conjunction with GLASS, presented "Dangerous Living: Coming Out in The Developing World."

The documentary, directed by John Scagliotti, highlights homosexuality in non-western cultures. It explored the consequences of overt homosexuality in areas such as Egypt, Thailand, Honduras and Kenya.

The film particularly focuses on an incident where 52 Egyptian men were arrested on the Queen Boat, a floating gay nightclub, in 2001. There was not a law against homosexuality during that time, but the men were tried for debauchery, or over-indulgence in sensualities.

Ashraf Zanati was one of the men arrested, and Egyptian officials subjected him to beatings. He was sentenced to 13 months in prison. The documentary also highlights other acts of violence, such as the son of a lesbian Honduras woman being tortured, simply because his mother was homosexual.

One important aspect of the documentary is the belief that gay rights is a "Western" idea, and many countries in the east accused homosexuals of being "westernized." However, another idea is that homophobia is also a Western concept, and that it was carried over to the east due to colonialism.

This doc came out in 2003, but from all that we know, little progress has been made in those 3 world countries, so it is still reflective of today's society. Unfortunately...

Chris Krok Should Be Fired...

As I am sure you may have heard by now the homophobic, anti-gay rant that KLIF 570 AM radio host Chris Krok went on recently after Fort Worth councilman Joel Burns gave an impassioned speech about being bullied as a young gay kid. Although any bigotry toward gay people is disturbing, Krok's rant reached beyond what we typically see in the media today. His speech, exuded such hate, bigotry and discrimination that it would lead one to believe that a deeper issue lies within Kork himself then just your run of the mill conservative who does not believe in homosexuality because the "bible says it is a sin". 

I do not know if anything has ever happened to Krok as a child or even if he may have his own personal struggles. But one thing is clear, Krok is deeply entrenched with hatred for a group that has done nothing to him. When you listen to the original broadcast below, Krok, speaks with a lisp to further degrade Joel Burns and the gay community as a hole. While he plays the audio of Brun's speech, he pauses it at points to mock what he is saying. Burn's at one point refers to his "husband", this particular referral sparks anger in Krok to which he stops the tape and goes on a tangent about Burns not having a husband because he lives in Texas where gay marriage is not legal and that also he is a man, there fore he can not have a husband.

I will not comment on all the of the discriminatory things said in Kork's segment, There are just too many. But one i found most despicable and very sad for Kork, is when Burns referenced all the gay teen suicide of late (his reason for the speech to begin with) Kork again became unglued, raging that Texas has not had any suicides so Burns's speech was pointless and that he should take it some where else...We are suppose to be a country of one, are we not? I ask Kork, since 9/11 happened in NY, does that mean on the anniversary of that day should no one in Texas acknowledge that because it "didn't happen In Texas"? I also ask if Kork himself has any children? What if one of those suicides was his child? I find it hard pressed that any father could not have compassion for another fathers loss of a child, because "it didn't happen here".

Lastly, apparently after a call from GLAAD to the stations operation manager, Kork has been disciplined and is going to issue an apology. After you listen to the audio below, i do not believe there is any apology that Kork can give to Burns or the rest of the community that is acceptable. It is that bad. Nor do i believe it would be a truthful apology. My stance is that Kork should be fired, this is far beyond a slap on the wrist situation. This guy has not only made anger filled remarks about a minority group, but he has also mocked the tragic suicides of teenagers across this country because they were bullied by the exact same hate that Kork is fueling. I am also a firm believer in freedom of speech, but i am not a believer in hatred, bigotry or discrimination and if Kork had went on this rant about black people, Jewish people etc. He would be handed his walking papers... 

As GLAAD reports on its blog, Krok attacked Burns in a segment that originally aired on radio station KLIF 570 AM last month but became the subject of blog conversations this past weekend. Burns made an “It Gets Better” message last month that became a YouTube sensation.

“On behalf of Joel and the many others whose life stories intersect with his, GLAAD made a phone call this afternoon to Jeff Catlin, the operations manager for Cumulus Media Dallas, KLIF’s parent company,” reported GLAAD blog on Monday. “The conversation was a productive one; Catlin both understands and shares our concern. As the person who oversees KLIF, Catlin acknowledged that he has the ‘responsibility to be responsible’ for what airs on the station.

“Without going into detail, Catlin said that he spoke with Krok and that he was disciplined shortly after the segment aired. He also pointed out that Krok has not spoken about this since then.”

Former Gay Porn Actor, Now Real Estate Mogul...

In creditable... Maybe i should have done porn!

Fredrik Eklund, a top New York City real estate agent, once acted in gay porn films under the name Tag Eriksson, for which he delivered an award-winning solo performance in the 2004 film The Hole.

Eklund, the member of a prominent Swedish family, was profiled in The New York Times, which described his trajectory in the past decade from gay porn films directed by Wash West to managing director of Core Group Marketing, where he carries a $58-million portfolio and has clients like Cameron Diaz, Justin Timberlake, and the Olsen twins.

“As Tag Eriksson, Mr. Eklund appeared in approximately six films shot in California in 2001 and 2002, including ‘The Hole,’ a parody of the popular horror film ‘The Ring.’ (In ‘The Ring’ watching a cursed videotape causes the characters to die; in ‘The Hole’ it makes them gay.) The film won him a 2004 GayVN award, sometimes called the gay pornography Oscars, for a best solo scene.”"

Irish Priest Banned From Publishing Anymore "Gay Is Normal" Writings...

AN IRISH Catholic priest has been banned by the Vatican from publishing any more of his writings after he suggested homosexuality is “simply a facet of the human condition”.

This follows an article on homosexuality by Capuchin priest Fr Owen O’Sullivan, published in last March’s edition of the Furrow magazine. Described as “a journal for the contemporary Church”, the Furrow is published at St Patrick’s College Maynooth.

Commenting on teachings that “homosexuality is unnatural”, Fr O’Sullivan wrote that “nature is a loose peg on which to hang a theology of human relationships”. The Concise Oxford Dictionary listed nine meanings for “nature” and 14 for “natural”, he said.

He noted it was argued that the natural purpose of sexuality is procreation “and that, since homosexual relationships are not procreative of life, they are therefore unnatural”.

Throughout history “same-sex attraction and acts have been a consistent feature of human life . . . Same-sex attraction is simply a facet of the human condition,” he said. He recalled church teaching says it is not wrong to be gay, ‘‘but it is wrong to act gay”.

He suggested: “Imagine someone saying... ‘There’s nothing in itself wrong with being Irish... But that doesn’t mean you may act on it. So, no more Guinness, going to Croke Park, singing rebel songs into the early hours of the morning, waving Tricolours, no more craic.”

Colombian Court Refuses To Allow Gay Marriage...

In a surprise decision, Colombia's ultraliberal Constitutional Court has refused a request to impose homosexual 'marriage' on the South American nation.
In a 5-4 verdict issued last Friday, the court refused to rule on a suit requesting the Court to change the nation's civil code to permit 'marriages' between people of the same sex.  
Article 42 of the Constitution of Columbia states: "The family is the fundamental nucleus of the society.  It is constituted by natural or juridical bonds, by the free decision of a man and a woman to contract marriage or by the responsible desire to make one."
The current civil code reflects the Constitution's traditional definition of marriage, stating that marriage is "a contract by which a man and a woman unify for the purpose of living together, procreating and helping one another." For now, it will remain intact, although the court's failure to render a verdict leaves the door open to a future ruling on the matter.
The court's refusal to act runs counter to a string of recent judicial decrees it has issued, overturning prohibitions against abortion in cases of rape and requiring all schools to teach a homosexualist and abortionist sexual education program. The unpopular decisions are provoking a backlash of protests and have prompted the nation's Conservative Party to launch a campaign to amend the constitution to protect the right to life in all cases.

Anti-Gay Bigot Afraid Of Gay TSA Pat Down....

In LaBarbera’s latest homophobic rant, he points out that Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano assured travelers they would receive pat-downs from same-sex TSA workers. But LaBarbera views this as “discrimination” against the rights of heterosexuals not to be “groped” by secret homosexuals, or something. It’s hard to figure out his reasoning here, except to fear-monger and spew hate.

“The reality is, most traveling men would not want Barney Frank to pat them down at the airport security checkpoint,” LaBarbera said. “Neither would it be fair to assign Ellen DeGeneres to pat down female travelers. (In the same vein, the Army should no more force normal male soldiers to shower and bunk with homosexual male soldiers than it would force females soldiers to bunk and shower with their male counterparts.)”

Since LaBarbera realizes a “pro-homosexual Executive Order” protects federal workers from discrimination based on “sexual orientation,” he offers up a few “healthy” discrimination solutions to the homosexual groping problem that only exists in his own mind.

* Perhaps some common-sense, healthy “discrimination” is in order: the TSA should put conditions on employment for self-acknowledged homosexuals – that they not be assigned to pat down travelers so as to avoid being put in sexually compromising situations;

* It would not be workable to assign, say, gay male TSA agents to pat down female travelers – as the latter – thinking the agents to be normal men – would protest that they are being patted down by males. Chaos would ensue;

* Does the TSA know which of its employees are homosexual, anyway, and how? If not, is it fair to travelers who may end up getting ‘groped’ by homosexual TSA agents who are secretly getting turned on through the process?

* Could the TSA be subjected to a sexual harassment lawsuit if the agent who engages in an overly aggressive “same-gender pat-down” – and gets sued – turns out to be homosexual?

I have no tolerance for this ignorant douche. I mean he is just so dumb. But here is my question for him, what if a gay man did not want to be patted down by a straight man? Idiot. Oh and one last thing, for LaBarbera to be putting so much thought into these homo-erotic "situations", I am beginning to wonder if he gets a rise in the front of his tighty whities when these thoughts conjure up in his minuscule brain? And it's probably not a high rise...:)

Two Ohio Schools Do Not Want To Protect Gay Kids...

I can not believe in the wake of everything that is going on, why a school would not want to protect all children from being bullied? Including gay kids...

In the wake of the homo taunting, two people with ties to the schools thought it would be a good time to clarify the district’s stance. Eastlake alum and lawyer Jim Helmink and Eastlake biology teacher Rhonda Kesling asked the board to amend the district’s anti-discrimination policy by including sexual orientation.

Many districts across the region already include gay and lesbian students as a protected group, among them Cleveland, Mentor, Lakewood, and Lorain public schools. Willoughby-Eastlake, however, does not.
But when Helmink and Kesling made their pitch, they got the cold shoulder. Superintendent Keith Miller and board president Margaret Warner refused to even discuss the matter with them, and the district’s lawyer did the same.

Helmink was later told that the district’s lawyer had advised against making the change, despite case law showing that districts that expand such protections do not open themselves up to legal problems.
“If they don’t want to vote on it based on legitimate concerns, that’s one thing,” says Helmink. “But right now they’re just ignoring it.”

It’s been a particularly frustrating ordeal for Kesling, a 26-year veteran of the district who was originally blackballed by the board in 2007 over the same proposed change. “It’s adding two words. What can it hurt?” she says. “Two words that will protect our students.” Multiple calls to Miller and Warner were not returned.

German Church Allows Gay Pastors To Live With Partners...

Gay and lesbian Lutheran ministers in the conservative German state of Bavaria may live with their partners in parish parsonages, but only if they enter into a state-sanctioned civil union.

Although the move may seem bold for what is generally considered one of Germany's most traditional states, Bishop Johannes Friedrich of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Bavaria said it was no great departure from existing policies.

He noted that the church had already welcomed openly gay ministers and same-sex unions. "We had only left out that a couple could live in a civil union in the parsonage," he said.

To abide by the ruling, gay or lesbian ministers must receive a church blessing for their union and enter into a civil union officially recognized by government officials.

According to church officials, six Bavarian ministers already live in same-sex civil unions.

Joy Behar Tells Joel Osteen Gays Are Born That Way....

I love Joy. I love the way she kind of, in a nice way, handed it to Joel Osteen, telling him that gays are born that way the same as straight people and that Christians should embrace that. Whoopi chimed in also with the same opinion. Watch below....In the same segment but on a different topic, the ever so bright Sherry Shepard believed that Jesus had money, that he was kinda wealthy. Of course the brains of the show had to school her in the facts. It was funny to hear Whoopi and Joy correct her...Unfortunately it is not in the clip below.

The Mormon Church Are Still Mor-ons....

Apparently the gay/gay marriage bigots have removed from their guide lines that gays should repent for 'their homosexual feelings". But don't be fooled they are still against gays acting on their attractions and marrying the same sex....I am sure that there are a lot of people who will say that this is a step in the right direction and yes, i will give them that, but the Mormon Church is scum. They promote discrimination, bigotry and "reparative therapy" and for those of you who don't know what that means; The Mor-ons believe you can change to being straight. And lets not forget Prop 8 Hate

Same-sex attraction is not inherently sinful, according to a new policy change by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

In a new edition of its leadership guidelines, the Mormon Church removed previous language calling for gays to repent of their "homosexual thoughts or feelings."

But LGBT Mormons must remain celibate in order to participate in temple rituals and receive church assignments known as "callings." Acting on same-sex attractions or marrying a same-sex partner remains against church policy.

In a Tuesday statement, the Reverend Harry Knox, director of the Human Rights Campaign's Religion and Faith Program, said, "We continue to disagree with the Mormon Church about fundamentally important issues like full respect for the marriages of same-sex couples, but we are encouraged that our advocacy has paid off with real movement that will help save young lives."

The new edition of the Church Handbook of Instructions eliminates an assertion that gay relationships "distort loving relationships."
