The Revenge Of Benny Hinn

From today’s inbox…. Hi Joe, You wrote: “Prosperity gospel televangelist and ‘faith healing’ scam artist Benny Hinn was unable to heal the desire of his wife to get the fuck away from him.” No one speaks against a man of God and be justified. God defends the righteous and will return in due time to reward the wicked. You still …

I Just Got Fired By AOL News

In their “11 Famous Politically Correct Firings” story, AOL News names me as the person canned from Sen. Saxby Chambliss’ staff for writing anti-gay hate speech on some homo blog. Oh well, there are worse things about me on the internet. UPDATED: AOL News has updated the story with a correction (misspelling my name, which they got right when I …

JMG Thanks Reader Dave Evans!

As a very active week on JMG comes to a close (almost 200 posts!), I’d like to take a moment to thank reader Dave Evans of Cleveland, who via his video news clipping work provides us with many breaking items of LGBT interest. Dave scours the cable outlets and chat shows for relevant items and often has them posted to …

Alan Colmes: 2PM Next Thursday

As I mentioned on Facebook a few days ago, I’m going to be a guest on Fox News’ Alan Colmes Show, but that appearance has been moved from 2PM today, to the same time next Thursday. As you may know, Colmes is the sole voice of sanity on Fox, but still…it’s Fox…so I’m taking garlic and stakes to the studio, …

HomoConQuotable – Christopher Barron

“He [Jervis] is a spineless cyber bully who I have seen pick on random gay conservatives – not even people who are public figures, but just random average gay folks who happen to have political opinions different then his. He is someone who should be uniformly shunned by everyone in our community for taking a page out of the Fred …

SLIDESHOW: San Francisco JMG Meet-Up

I had a fantastic time meeting a ton of JMG readers at last night’s meet-up at the Castro’s Edge Bar. Many longtime JMG’ers were in the house, including Huntington, Castro Craig, Sean Chapin, KitchenBeard, and NoCal Drummer. Wacky SF performance artist Philip Huang even showed up! I was sorta pulled in ten directions at once, so I hope I got …

Glitch Report

As a few of you have pointed out by email, a handful of posts from the last week seem to have vanished. The problem was first noticed last night and appears to be continuing. I’m checking into this, but nothing has been noted on the host’s “issues” page thus far. The posts do appear to remain in the RSS feed. …

Christwire’s JMG Pulp Novel

Christwire’s Stephenson Billings has created a fleet of amusing pulp novel covers taking jabs at various bloggers, websites, and personalities. I am opening the door to their obsessions and predilections, their narcissism and their lust, the very things that they are too afraid to admit to themselves. If today’s so-called artists and thinkers had the energy and wherewithal to actually …

Sen. Saxby Chambliss Just Called Me To Offer His “Sincerest Apologies”

I just got off the phone with Sen. Saxby Chambliss, who said he was calling to personally apologize for the “All faggots must die” comment left here on JMG last Tuesday. I’ll paraphrase what Chambliss said to me, but reporters, please don’t excerpt any of this as his exact words. CHAMBLISS: “Joe, I don’t know if you’re Republican or Democrat, …

Some JMG Stuff

As our JMG comment threads frequently now reach far beyond 100 responses, the comments service provider has helped me increase the one-page comment limit to 500. (It used to be 20!) If you’d prefer shorter comment thread pages, let me know. And as I mentioned last week, I’ve just about reached Facebook’s (arbitrary) friends limit, so I’ve been forced to …

AC360: Rep. Jared Polis & LCR’s Clarke Cooper Discuss Chambliss Scandal

Tonight CNN’s Anderson Cooper discussed the “all faggots must die” comment left by a Sen. Saxby Chambliss staffer here on JMG, bringing on Rep. Jared Polis and Log Cabin head R. Clarke Cooper. (The same pair discussed the issue on MSNBC’s Hardball yesterday.) Tonight’s conversation focused more on the delay in identifying the culprit, although LCR’s Cooper once again attempted …

JMG Fan Page

I’ve reached the friends limit on Facebook so I’ve been forced to create, UGH, a JMG fan page, where I’ll be posting breaking stories and clips as I’ve done on my regular page. I encourage you to use the new page to post your own news items of LGBT interest and add your own commentaries.

The office of GOP Sen. Saxby Chamblis has admitted that it was their staffer that left the comment “All faggots must die” on this blog yesterday. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports: U.S. Sen.

My Interviews With Fox & CNN

Fox News commenters think the story is fake and if it’s not fake then I should be arrested for violating the privacy of a Senate staffer. Or something. CNN’s reporter just confirmed the details and doesn’t quote me. The story has also landed on the Washington Post and some progressive blogs like the Daily Beast and Talking Points Memo. Change.org …

Michelangelo Signorile Show: 4:30PM

I’ll be on Michelangelo Signorile’s show on SiriusXM OutQ at about 4:30pm today to talk about the Sen. Saxby Chambliss story from yesterday. The story has gotten tons of web coverage, including from some major national outlets, but so far today Chambliss’ office is apparently being unresponsive to inquiries. Listen to the Signorile show online for free. (Registration required.) NOTE: …

Galloway reports that Chambliss told him his office is conducting an internal investigation. For now Chambliss’ spokesperson has issued …

“All Faggots Must Die”

The above comment was left today by “Jimmy” on my post about the DADT cloture vote. The IP address *appears* to resolve to the neighborhood of GOP U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss’ Atlanta office. The ISP is “United States Senate.” I’m confident that the JMG internet sleuths can get to the source. Here’s the IP: 156.33.20.72. Get busy, geeks! UPDATE: According …
