    They say the mag is selling poorly, maybe we can go out and pick up a copy to help show support?

    Too bad they don't put shields over all the crap they sell that's crammed with saturated fat, trans fat, chemicals, preservatives and artifical ingredients.

    Too bad they don't put shields over their beef -- the grisly remains of steroid-soaked, feces-laced cattle, nurtured during their short lifetimes by hundreds of pounds of ground-up dead animals and hundreds of gallons of cow blood.

    I wish they worried more about what we eat than what we read.

    It was a rogue manager. Their HQ already ordered the removal of the shield. It took place in only one store.

    Well, I'm going to see if it's still on stands and buy my copy. Too bad I can't fly to AK to buy it there...

    I hate Elton John and I'm not surprised it isn't selling well.
    That asshole has screwed over so many homosexuals.... (not sexually- Thank *insert your god of choice*!)

    I note the disparity between the news item saying "Mountain View" Arkansas, and the Harps Food Stores release saying "Mountain Home." Both are indeed towns in Arkansas, up in the Ozarks. I've been in both, and they're perhaps some 30 road miles apart, Mountain Home nearer to the Missouri border. I used to camp up there, closer to Mountain View, where the Ozark Folk Center is located.

    This incident really doesn't surprise me, since the people there are very fundamentalist Christian. I'm just astonished that Harps (and I've shopped in them) decided to override their Mountain Home manager.

    I normally don't get involved with anything gossip related (esPECIally about celbrities) but I'm curious to know what makes you say that?

    Update: the shield has been removed. It's quite sad but I can understand how these poor pathetic people are feeling that their way of thinking and bigotry will be a thing of the past and not to mention their way of thinking is dying out.

    Elton John is an asshole. He's not particularly loved by many in the gay community (I'd be willing to bet it's split right down the middle), so it's no surprise the magazine isn't selling well.

    Well I've never had any use for him. Certainly a great talent, but also the very model of a modern major queen. And a vindictive one at that.

    Maybe I'm kind of in the dark a bit, but I'm wondering where you guys are coming from with him not being liked by the gay community. Not saying it isn't so, but I've never heard of any bad press with regard to this. Tell me what I'm missing, I'm intrigued.

    There's a saying that a man can be judged by the friends he keeps. I suppose the corollary would be that the enemies he gains also define him, and I'm fortunate to have several of the "best" you can have here on RJ. Just imagine my poor reputation if they were associated with me as friends instead! icon_wink.gif

    I remember when I first heard about Elton John adopting I prepared myself mentally and emotionally for all the fucked up comments I would read on news.yahoo, dailymail uk, etc. Sometimes I wish certain aspect of Gay related news were suppressed because it only leads to some hate speech, immature schoolboy banter and death threats. Just because two dudes want to take care of a child.

    Thats so funny as I was to learn much the same thing from the LDS. But as a true blue Aussie, we will also stand by an underdog. You stand with the pack of wolves here, yes that does say a lot about you. Bully's rarely have the balls to stand on their own. You should take yourself off your pedestal it's effecting your eyesight.

    How are the ex wives, children and grandchildren? Have them all over for Christmas? I'm sure you have just turned out to be the very model of modern major old queen fathers, and a vindictive one at that; thats why you fit in so well; here.

    Those poor wives and children what you must of put them though. You know red the closeted Army dad in "American Beauty" reminds me of you, and how I would of found you during all your straight years, as a married heterosexual with kids.

    A homophobic, repressive husband and father. How many of them stand by you today as a breeding bisexual father?

    I know this has strayed away only a little bit, we are just now talking about a diffrent old queen, none the less both with children. One used a womens womb for rent, and that is the controversy down here, and not just with Elton John. Then the other who just used women; nothing to be proude of, is that why you now stand under the banner of gay so you can hid away from all of that? Make out it never happend; reinvent yourself?

    In fact Red you are a perfect example of why us pure homosexuals should behold our very own banner. To separate us from your sins, because the way things stand at the moment the gay community get the blame for being family wreckers and it had nothing to do with us considering you are not gay but a breeding bisexual. Yep we have the right to our very own banner. Oh Elton once had a wife too, and said he was bi.

    But down here the controversy is not so much to do with an old queen becoming a father. But more to do with women renting out their wombs for cash when you can not sell or give a child away.
