    She's been a supporter of the community for years now. It's her father, Pat Boone, who's the homophobe.

    Here's her husband and Judge Judy officiating Michael Feinstein's 2008 wedding

    I think this is worth talking about since it demonstrates that views can evolve for the better.

    Just shows how Coming Out of the Closet helps not only the person hiding their orientation, but the community as a whole.

    Bigger story would be finding a reasonably hip Gay Guy that accepts Debby Boone...

    It's not so much about caring about her individual opinion but that seeing that people can change and evolve in their way of thinking and that should give all gays hope that one day enough people and institutions will evolve to a more enlightened way of thinking and life will be that much better for us all.

    You should care because we have all had distorted ways of thinking in the past. I'm sure if you think real hard, you will realize your heart has been changed on many issues too. Bitterness will get you nowhere.

    Sustenance saidI'm so confused. So is the object to have EVERYONE in the world accept gay people in spite of the fact not EVERYONE in the gay community accepts straight people or even so little as procreation? I would like someone to clarify that for me. It's an experiment of mine.


    You generalize too much to have an intelligent conversation with. In fact, pretty much every word out of your mouth is a generalization or judgement of some kind.

    lol, what? who doesn't accept straight people?


    Cummon, open your heart. There was a thread here not long ago just bashing procreation and what you guys call "breeders". Doesn't that sound like a prejudice nickname?icon_rolleyes.gif


    Even if the thread did exist, you're talking about ONE person who created that thread. You have the Generalization Disease.

    Sustenance saidI don't want to waste the time looking up the thread but it wasn't very long ago. You can either accept the truth or continue living in denial. I saw and read through it with my own eyes. I also saw the term "breeders" being used in many threads after that. Your community is just as prejudice towards procreators as insane religious fanatics are over the gay community. Break out of the shell. It's freedom man. Watch the wars of the world in a whole different HD screen view.
    We don't go picketing their funerals. We don't shun them from our lives for their sexual orientation. We don't violently attack or murder them because of their sexual orientation.
    You're so misguided Stuart, you really need some serious therapy.


    God, your victimizations are literally ancient history. That is not what it is about for you anymore. Admit it... This community seeks REVENGE!!! Well you are just as human as they were and my isn't society realizing that as a fact now? Give it a century if the community survives, they will murder everyone of those families, even their own. Politics is a filthy thing.


    For someone who claims to be dying, you have almost no compassion for others. If some gay people were feeling vengeful, can you not see where that might come from? Gay people have been oppressed for decades, so a little resentment is understandable.

    Why do we need Debby's approval? But she did light up my life way too much back in 1977.

    Who said anything about being bitter! I give 0 fucks what she thinks or who she is/ was as a person. She has no bearing on my existence nor will she ever! Sure people change their opinions all the time on a lot of things, myself included… but I don't see there revelations plastered on the internet, and I'm sure some of them are far more important then she is. Is her change of attitude going to affect the gay community either way… I highly doubt it. Celebrity sensationalism is all it is. icon_rolleyes.gif

    it is people like her being vocally supportive that has helped us move ahead. So, yes, her opinion is welcome and appreciated. Her fans are mostly Christian and I would hope that some of them listening to her will at least consider being more open to accepting us.

    Yep/ It's a barometer of at how some Christians view Gays now. Certainly the younger and less Fundamentalist.

    You couldn't be more wrong. Christians look up to her. She is a voice of reason in a very troubled and confused Christian community. We did not get where we are today by doing it alone. We got here with the support of many compassionate straight people too. It's important to be grateful for each and every person who supports us. I bet the gay people in the Middle East and Africa wish they had the support of people like her, but they have no one.
