Celebrity Chooses To Be Gay

KOMO News is reporting that Cynthia Nixon, well known for her role in the television series "Sex and the City," has chosen to become gay.

Nixon told the New York Times Magazine that after being married to a man for 15 years and having two children, she has decided to become gay. She told the magazine, "It was a conscious choice."

"For me its a choice and you don't get to define my gayness for me," she told her detractors.

And there are many detractors. To say the homosexual community is upset at her would be an understatement. They are very upset, because this strikes at the very heart of their premise in demanding "civil rights" and so-called "marriage equality". As former Republican Washington State Senator Dale Brandland said from the floor during the "everything but marriage" bill debate a couple of years ago, "They're born that way, they can't help it."

Wayne Besen, whose organization is singularly committed to debunking people and organizations who claim homosexuals can be cured or delivered from their behavior, is livid.

He and others have tried to "help" Nixon understand her feelings by diagnosing her as "bi-sexual."

"No," Nixon says, "I am not bi-sexual." I have decided to be gay.

Keeping the homosexual agenda and talking points on track is difficult---like the saying "as hard as herding cats," because it is based entirely on the premise of "civil rights" and "equality".

The problem they have is that sexual behavior is not equivalent to ethnicity and there is not one shred of science that affirms that homosexual behavior is genetic, or "born that way."

Besen's organization is called "Truth Wins Out." Perhaps he and others should take a moment, push back and take an honest look at the Truth. It sets people free.

Be Vigilant. Be Discerning. Be Prayerful. Be Active. Be Blessed.

  1. I knew this silly story was going to come up. Two points:

    1. While Nixon says she "chose" to be gay, when interviewers dug deeper, she actually "chose" to act on attractions she's always had, but hates the word "bisexual" to describe it. That is in no way "choosing" a sexual orientation... it's just choosing to act on desires you already have. Here's a key exchange:

    ***

    CN: ... I don’t pull out the “bisexual” word because nobody likes the bisexuals. Everybody likes to dump on the bisexuals.

    Q: But it is the “B” in LGBT.

    CN: I know. But we get no respect.

    Q: You just said “we,” so you must self-identify as one.

    CN: I just don’t like to pull out that word. But I do completely feel that when I was in relationships with men, I was in love and in lust with those men. And then I met Christine and I fell in love and lust with her. I am completely the same person and I was not walking around in some kind of fog. I just responded to the people in front of me the way I truly felt.

    ***

    2. Knowing that race is not a chosen trait did not keep the white man from discriminating against them. And, there's no serious movement to allow discrimination based on religion even though it's clearly a choice.

    But have a field day...

  2. It's pretty pathetic when you make it your front page story that ONE person claims to have a made it a choice. Then to find out that it really wasn't what they meant, ouch. This cause just isn't what it used to be, is it Gary?

  3. Hahahahahahahaha. Oops sorry - I didn't mean to be disrespectful, but hey - it seems to be the norm with Gary's detractors.

    You guys can't see the truth when it is right in front of your face. Folks are getting set free ALL the time in ministries in San Fransisco but don't go looking for it because they find a more peaceful life by not publicizing it for the kind of hateful banter y'all demonstrate here. The truth will get you in the end that is guaranteed. When you face God you will know for sure. My prayers go with you. Hope you catch the truth before it is too late. God knows you have had much opportunity.

  4. As always Gary is a day late and a dollar short. Ms Nixon has already released a statement clarifying her orientation and experience of it:

    "While I don't often use the word, the technically precise term for my orientation is bisexual. I believe bisexuality is not a choice, it is a fact. What I have 'chosen' is to be in a gay relationship. As I said in the Times and will say again here, I do, however, believe that most members of our community — as well as the majority of heterosexuals — cannot and do not choose the gender of the persons with whom they seek to have intimate relationships because, unlike me, they are only attracted to one sex. Our community is not a monolith, thank goodness, any more than America itself is. I look forward to and will continue to work toward the day when America recognizes all of us as full and equal citizens."

  5. Here, let Cynthia 'straighten you out' in her own words:

    "My recent comments in The New York Times were about me and my personal story of being gay. I believe we all have different ways we came to the gay community and we can't and shouldn't be pigeon-holed into one cultural narrative which can be uninclusive and disempowering. However, to the extent that anyone wishes to interpret my words in a strictly legal context I would like to clarify:

    "While I don't often use the word, the technically precise term for my orientation is bisexual. I believe bisexuality is not a choice, it is a fact. What I have 'chosen' is to be in a gay relationship.

    "As I said in the Times and will say again here, I do, however, believe that most members of our community — as well as the majority of heterosexuals — cannot and do not choose the gender of the persons with whom they seek to have intimate relationships because, unlike me, they are only attracted to one sex.

    "Our community is not a monolith, thank goodness, any more than America itself is. I look forward to and will continue to work toward the day when America recognizes all of us as full and equal citizens."


    My major surprise is that this is news - we've know she was bisexual even while 'Sex in the City' was filming - that she is switching from a husband to a wife shouldn't be news or shocking to anyone.

  6. Gary's not telling the full story. Here's a quote from Cynthia Nixon today:

    "While I don't often use the word, the technically precise term for my orientation is bisexual. I believe bisexuality is not a choice, it is a fact. What I have 'chosen' is to be in a gay relationship. As I said in the Times and will say again here, I do, however, believe that most members of our community — as well as the majority of heterosexuals — cannot and do not choose the gender of the persons with whom they seek to have intimate relationships because, unlike me, they are only attracted to one sex. Our community is not a monolith, thank goodness, any more than America itself is. I look forward to and will continue to work toward the day when America recognizes all of us as full and equal citizens."

    The truth is that folks, who claimed to have been "set free" by so-called ex-gay ministries, are coming forward all the time and stating is was all a lie and NEVER experienced ANY change in their orientation!

  8. I've tried posting this once before, but the censors ate it. Is there any valid reasoning for censoring Cynthia Nixon's own words on this issue? Again here is Ms Nixon's statement clarifying her orientation for those, like Gary, who are attempting to misrepresent her:
    "While I don't often use the word, the technically precise term for my orientation is bisexual. I believe bisexuality is not a choice, it is a fact. What I have 'chosen' is to be in a gay relationship. As I said in the Times and will say again here, I do, however, believe that most members of our community — as well as the majority of heterosexuals — cannot and do not choose the gender of the persons with whom they seek to have intimate relationships because, unlike me, they are only attracted to one sex. Our community is not a monolith, thank goodness, any more than America itself is. I look forward to and will continue to work toward the day when America recognizes all of us as full and equal citizens."

    What are Gary and FFN so afraid of in that statement?

  9. I'm sure Gary will publish a retraction. He's pretty good about admitting when he's been wrong.

  11. We see the beginnings of this now with business owners being told they have to decorate for homosexual weddings and events whether or not they want. So their freedoms are being taken away because of Washington's new legislation.

    Common misperception it seems. Nothing new about the marriage equality legislation, it would be just as illegal to state you are refusing to provide a service for them because of their religious beliefs, their sexual orientation, etc right now.

    Business owners have no right to demand that their custormers believe a certain way, share their religion, or their sexual orientation right now.

    Taking pictures for an event is just taking pictures, baking a cake is just baking a cake. Again, Christians who hold with Paul have already been told what to do in this situation in 1 Corinthians 5 - if non-members of a sect hire a member's business in its capacity as a feast thrower, well, they should throw it. The mere act of doing business with them is NOT sinful and their judgement is up to God not the business owner.

    Might as well be lamenting the inability to not do business with Jews, interracial couples, and the like.

    1. You are mistaken, 1 Cor. 5 says nothing about hiring your business out to unbeleivers, only that we am not to withdraw from the world. If we did, how would the gospel be spread. We can't condemn the world, only God can do that.

  12. 12:35 Gary isn't a day late and a dollar short, he is just reporting what is happening. When you can't defend the message, attack the messenger. The fact that the actress finally caved in to the pressure from the gay activists and tagged herself as one of your definitions of deviance says more about you than her and nothing about Gary. Thanks Gary. Keep turning on the light. We support you and your work.

    1. No, he's "reporting" what happened a week ago ( day late), and reporting a version that has already been corrected by the person involved (dollar short). Now you
      might not like it, but those are the facts. Ms Nixon did not cave, she just clarified that while she is equally attracted to men and women and chose to identify as gay this isn't the case for most gays and lesbians.

  13. Osthur-Not true. Business owners can still refuse service to anyone. Your intrusive legislation has taken a lot of our freedoms, but not all of them yet. Legalizing gay marriage will further erode personal rights and freedom of religious expression.

    2. He's a man of Christian morals, so when would you expect it?

  15. Business owners can still refuse service to anyone.
    Of course they can if they don't mind being sued for violating the federal civil rights code.

    Again nothing has changed nothing will change. It amazes me that out of hatred marriage equality is blamed for laws that have been in place for years.

  16. Oshtur, thats not always true. A business owner has the right to refuse service to anyone for a whole host of reasons without fear of legal action. I know you know that.

    Of course I do but what does that have to do with the context of this thread - people refusing customers because of their religion or sexual orientation?

    Again, just cuz a business owner's church doesn't perform marriages for everyone doesn't mean they can refuse business from someone because they are in a church that does.

    1. I don't see why, it's their economic loss and a matter of free choice.

  18. You are mistaken, 1 Cor. 5 says nothing about hiring your business out to unbeleivers, only that we am not to withdraw from the world.

    And that you are free to associate with such people, i.e. do business with them. And it tells you the only way you could not associate with them would be to withdraw from the world, it doesn't tell you NOT to withdraw from the world.

    These subtle changes you weave into scripture is how you get so far afield from their intent.

    1. No, you don't HAVE to do business with anybody and neither do I. You are free to do so and so am I. It's called freedom of conscience. Same for a business, they don't have to do business with anybody they don't want to. It's their economic loss and their freedom of choice.

      Yes, I can refuse someone who calls himself a christian and is sexually immoral, like yor mate=)

  19. Of course you 'can' its still actionable - a violation of the state Civil Rights Act right now.

    You can always choose to commit crimes, that is a 'choice' but I don't think its how law-abiding citizens use the word 'can' generally.
