Not much different from Republicans today. I mean, look at the Foley
mess and all.

Then of course you have the fundies scandals too, particulary Mr.
Haggard himself.

Someone once said that the most homophobic have something to hide and
it's turned out that it has been true more often than not.

Mmmm hmmm. Ever see the movie 'Latter Days?'

I do know that homosexuality is a great way to get them to stop visiting
you. Works for both Mormons and Jehovah's Witnesses. Of course it might
have to be outright demonstrative acts but still, it's effective.

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: Actually, that is not true, at least
most of the time. As I have said to all of them at one time or another
I am gay AND Episcopalian ... and proud of both. They look at me as a
curiosity. They come over here and have dinner with me about once each
month. I do not think they have yet figured out how that works ... gay
and Episcopalian, although I do not see why it should be a big
mystery. And since they rely on their own pitiful money allotment for
food, they are always glad to get a free supper. I used to be much
more involved with the 'community free supper' on Thursday nights at
Epiphany Church (although lately as my health deteriorates more and
more rapidly I have not been as involved) and the missionaries before
the current two used to come over for that now and then also at the
Epiphany Episcopal Church fellowship hall. The former crop of
missionaries once said to me, "Gosh, Mr. Townson, you are about the
only person here in town who does not try to hide and refuse to answer
the door when we come calling, or answer but then slam the door in our
face, and you take us out to eat now and then also." Its like I tell
the people at Epiphany: the missionaries witness to me, and I witness
to them. Yes, I have seen 'Latter Days' and I know most missionaries
have seen it also. The only thing which really bugs me is when I have
a JW come around at the same time as the LDS guys. (That happened to
me once.) PAT]
