Great stuff from Steve Gershom

Humans don’t make sense without gender. When I tell people I don’t believe that homosexual acts are right, I don’t mean two men shouldn’t have sex; I mean they can’t. See what he means. … [Read more...]

My Brother, Steve Gershom.

No, really, he's my actual brother, Joey.  Joseph Prever, to you.  He's been writing as Steve Gershom ("Catholic, Gay, and Feeling Fine, Thanks") for a couple of years now, but today , with the help of Daffy Duck and Strong Bad, he's shedding the semi-anonymity -- and hoping it won't hurt his chances with the ladies. Go say hello!  Good job, Joey.  We love you.   … [Read more...]

Shame on you for not reading me

. . . says Steve Gershom, in a nice acknowledgement for the interview we did a couple of weeks ago.  Steve expands a little on his favorite parts, and remarks rather poignantly, As a celibate gay man, I seem to spend half my time telling secular people that I’m just the same as other men, and telling Christians that I’m extremely different from other men. The truth is in the mean, I guess, but sometimes to make the stick straight (heh) you have to bend it too far in the other … [Read more...]

Ex-Gay? Is That Even a Thing? An Interview with Steve Gershom (part two)

Ex-Gay? Is That Even a Thing? An Interview with Steve Gershom (part one)

The organization is now shutting down.Many secular organizations who embrace homosexuality as healthy are overjoyed to see Exodus go; but many Christian organizations -- even those who see homosexual attraction as disordered -- are also glad. Aaron Taylor of First Things, for instance, says that Exodus' views and methods show that their idea of heterosexuality is just as disordered as … [Read more...]

At the Register: Can we save infidelity?

I try to avoid hand-wringing, but today, I don't know what else to do. … [Read more...]

“I’m not a homosexual. I’m a man.”

Come on over and see me at Faith and Family today (for real this time!), where I have a short interview with a young, gay, faithful Catholic man.  You'll like him -- he's so clean and articulate!  But something tells me Joe Biden would not be impressed. And hello and welcome to Faith and Family and Creative Minority Report readers.  Stick around for tomorrow, when we will  . . . okay, I have no idea what we will be doing tomorrow.  The Jerk, who usually reviews movies on Thursdays, … [Read more...]
