Funny. I was reading this earlier this afternoon and wondering what to say about it. I couldn't decide. And then I thought: this show is awful and will be quickly cancelled due to stupidity. AFA knows this and saw an opportunity to claim a victory. And who's playing the part of Jesus.? God, I hope it's Ashton Kutcher!

Wow. He does have 'gay face.' It's nice to see someone admit that there is such a thing in print.

A lot of ex-gays I've seen online seem to have gay face, which is why it's always so hard to take them seriously. It's hard to believe a fella has a heart for Jesus when he clearly has a mouth that says 'insert cock here.'

I feel bad for guys born with gay face. Maybe Christian Campbell should try to grow a beard or a moustache or something. Or get an eyepatch and a hook. Arrgh!

Pen15 Club did a long piece on gay face a few months back that is pretty definitive of the phenomena. It's amusing reading.

He did have a beard on All My Children. I don't watch the show, but I walked past the television one day, saw him with a beard, and couldn't believe my eyes. If anything, he looked gayer.

It's a damn shame he's self-identified as straight. He must take an awful lot of crap.

That WAS a good article on gayface. Thanks!

As Jesus said to me last time I had a vision/conversation with him, "Oy".

Oh, lighten up, people. Give it a chance before you pan it. It can't be any worse than Will & Grace portrays us. It all depends upon what the writers come up with. The premise may seem a little off to you guys, but there's clearly an opportunity for them to expose redneck america to some issues they don't want to face.

i don't know, jamie, this whole synopsis reads like a bad SNL skit about the most ridiculous tv pitch of all time. this one just barely beat out the one about the priest, a necrophiliac nun, and a transexual midget walking into a bar.

and the print ads are a total rip-off of the Six Feet Under look. "dark, edgy comedy is so now, we need to tap into the HBO demographic!" i'm sure a network won't screw that up.

Who knows. NBC has gotten kinda desperate ratings-wise. Maybe this is Jeff Zucker's hail mary. More likely, tho, the network suits will fuck it up. Think this would have a better shot on everybody's favorite me-too pay channel, Showtime.

Still - that they gave this thing the green light is a pretty good thumb in the eye to those christian fundy types. And this bitchy PR release from the AFA will only boost public interest. Bet the suits at NBC are praying for a high-profile boycott. Free publicity baby!

Here's an interesting web site which tracks The American Family Ass.
Pretty scary stuff

I have the same respect for gay repukelicans as I do for Jewish Nazis. Burn them all! (I wouldn't feel too bad about that.)
