Sheila E. to Pray Away the Gay?

Sheila E. is playing a concert in Santa Fe tomorrow night with her family as part of a 7 day Christian celebration at our brand new convention center.

The mayor scheduled to speak and guitarist Ramon Bermudez was scheduled to play but they have pulled out after reading on the Christian group, Revive's website that the troubles in this world are largely the result of the "homosexual explosion."

I knew she was heavily religious but I didn't know she was into bigotry.

I don't understand this proliferation of hardcore religion among Prince and his former associates. What's driving so many of them to it? Especially considering they were, so many of them, free spirits.

The word hypocrit somes to mind. How can they claim to be so religious and sing such lyrics and preach love and acceptance for all and do things like this.

Could it be that Sheila is unaware of what that Christian group has said? hmmm Just trying to give her the benefit of the doubt.

That's possible, but you'd think a public figure might want to check out the background of those they're associating themselves with.

Its not bigotry for a Christian if she is one. The Christian Bible says homosexuality is a sin.

Bigotry is bigotry no matter how one tries to justify it.

People grow up and change. I don't hear or see Sheile E performing "Erotic City" anymore. In addtion, she may not be aware of what the Christian group promoting the concert has on their website and if you do not agree with "homosexuality" you are well within your right to say so.

However, you are not within your right to prevent people from their pursit of earning a living, having a place to live or resticting their gathering in public places.

I am begining to think you guys don't really know what discrimination.

Who on this thread advocated restricting this gathering?

I'm disappointed with Sheila for supporting a hate-filled group that spreads an evil message. There's nothing wrong with saying so. No one's trying to stifle her from making a living. But you're kidding yourself if you don't think the living she's become accustomed to didn't come from a lot of gay and lesbian fans.

And why did you put homosexuality in quotation marks?

The belief that homosexuality is a sin is beside the point and is not what I'm talking about. Listing homosexuality (and the acceptance of it) as one of the six reasons for our "national destruction" is hateful. That's where the bigotry comes in.

Why should that make a person feel guilty? There's nothing wrong with expressing healthy human sexuality.

Doesnt she play in Family Jams concerts with Wendy and Lisa?confuse

Last I heard she does still associate with them. confuse

And what is considered a "sin" in one religion/beleif may not be in another. Alot of Christian churches are accepting gay and lesbians, although many are not.
Smurf theme song-seriously how many fucking "La Las" can u fit into a dam song wall
Proud Wendy and Lisa Fancy Lesbian asskisser thumbs up!

I guess some of the folks around here don't know. I just clicked in to see how quickly this thread would get locked. Whenever anyone brings up Sheila's sexuality, a thread lock is not far behind.

I don't think so; people talk about Sheila's sexuality a lot around here without it getting locked.

That was always the rumor but never proven as far as I know. She been Christian for a pretty long time, i think since getting therapy and finding christian healing for her child abuse. I dunno the whole thing is sketchy. this group might not even talk about homosexuality...maybe they've changed their stance. shrug

someone on here post/say Wendy was Christian? Huh?

like I said she has friends and former band mates that are gay, that to me is two faced. I found out a week ago Wendy was gay and she taakes pis the Sheila acting all budy budyand has talked about peace and acceptance. I am just very disappointed.

I wish groups like this would work as hard to stop child molesters and dead beat dads. We will never get things togather as long as there are groups lke this. That Mayor did the right thing. But he should have done a check before he committed.

I read the link and they do put rape, abortion and disintegration of the family or whateva on their list of problems, then they go an apologize for saying homosexual explosion instead of sexual immorality. So now I wonder if that Mayor would have stayed committed if the choice of words had been different. hmmm trouble with politicians is that they are so political. whofarted
