Anti-gay pastor is… wait for it…

It should really just be obvious by now that someone talking about how we should care very much about how the Bible or Koran condemns teh ghey is themself gayer than eight guys fucking nine guys. But for the time being, when individual cases involving pastors occur it’s still considered news. From the AP via Yahoo:

A Lutheran pastor ardently critical of allowing gays into the clergy is on leave from his Minneapolis church after a gay magazine reported his attendance at a support group for men struggling with same-sex attraction.

This pastor’s name is Tom Brock. Meanwhile, later in the article:

The Lavender article never explicitly said Brock confessed to homosexual activity. It quotes him at one point talking about a recent mission trip to Eastern Europe, of which he says, “I fell into temptation. I was weak.”

Now since this guy is actually gay and in denial, he has to think that every heterosexual guy is similarly “tempted” and that he just had a moment of weakness. But heterosexual guys aren’t tempted to go to Eastern Europe so we can bone other dudes. That’s kind of what it means to not be gay. It never seems to occur to this type that other people could possibly be different from them. They’ve somehow reverted in their development to infancy where they’re still unaware that other minds exist.

So in a way, I don’t really think this sort of story should actually be news. We should all just assume that the anti-gay pastors are dealing with their own inner struggle in the same way that we assume that water is wet and mosquitoes bite; just another self-evident observation.
