As typical with me I toodle around the web, catching up on the news. Because in 2005, I was one of those: If it dosn't affect me, then leave me outta of it Lesbians. *how idiotic of me* But, having grown more comfortable in my own skin...I figure it's never too late to throw my ten cents in. Inflation as caused me to up it from two cents.
Ex-Lesbian Wants Homosexual Magazines Out of Local Library

(AgapePress) - Anything that starts with the words Agape..you know is going to really mean Agape to those who we deam Agapeable. (yes I make up words) A former lesbian Former lesbians...I really want to meet one anyone of you out there wanna talk? I'm just curious on how that is working out for you...and what went on in your life. who became a Christian And how come they always have to become a Christian to be a former lesbian...? That's what Ive noticed. is among several residents calling on a local library to remove two provocative homosexual magazines from its shelves. Because gay magazines tend to me against themselves and the market they are trying to reach. Any other gay magazine is called something like, Exodus: the Biblical Laxitive for Homosexuals. The Board of Trustees for the Upper Arlington Public Library recently voted unanimously to continue displaying and distributing the publications Outlook Weekly and Gay People's Chronicle. Goood for them. First Amendment rights, uhm avoiding some nazi like behavours there.
The decision was made despite the concerns of individuals who object to the sexually explicit content of the two magazines. One such individual is Lancaster resident Deb French, a former lesbian, *gag* who believes the publications have been strategically placed in the library by "the enemy" to seduce the young minds of children. Who the hell is 'the enemy'? Aliens, parents, demons, terriosts?
French is advocating for the protection of impressionable young people. "Our children coming into the library have fragile minds," Fragile?!? When I was a teenager my mind was made of glass, and if I saw a gay magazine it wouldn't shatter. she says. "They're in a critical state of being formed, and they're vulnerable, sexually confused, Sexually confused? When I was a teen I was confused because society said I should like boys and I liked girls. That was my confusion, everyone else around me seemed to know what their hormones were doing. and wondering about many things in this period of their life. Like when am I going to get laid, does Mark like me, do I look fat in this, and oh chit, I'm getting a zit. And this kind of explicit moral debauchery or filth -- it's pornography -- has no place in our library or in the minds of our children." Because kids can be perverts on their own...trust me I was a kid.
As a former lesbian who is now a follower of Jesus Christ, Aparently gay people can't love God. It's the 11 commandment.French feels it is her duty to warn people that homosexuality is anything but a "gay" lifestyle. In fact, she contends, it is a "death lifestyle." Last time I checked, ten outta ten people die. So any 'life style' can be a death life style. Christianity is a death life style...they all die. At a recent public forum, the Lancaster resident implored the Upper Arlington Public Library to remove the two offensive magazines from circulation or, at the very least, put them out of children's eyesight. However, the library's board refused both options.
French says one of the main reasons she attended the forum was that "this is an issue that's dear to my heart, because God walked me, personally, out of homosexuality 16 years ago. So dear to her heart that she wants to tread on other peoples rights, instead of loving people as the bible commanded. Last time I checked Jesus didn't tell people to try and boss people around in the name of God but to love them. I think French has lost some of that loven feeling. And I know there's power to change in Jesus Christ. Changed from being a lesbian to a book nazi. First Corinthians 6:11 even says, 'such were some of you.'"
But in spite of the objections of French and other concerned area residents, the Upper Arlington Library Board of Trustees decided to keep both Outlook Weekly and Gay People's Chronicle in sight and in circulation. The board argued that neither of the two homosexual magazines meets federal obscenity standards. Because the Governement knows best. *sarcasm*
