World War II principals and purity cult collaborators were Mussolini, Tojo and Hitler.
¨A cult is a group of people who organize around a strong authority figure--most often that person is attempting to expand their influence for the purposes of money or power.¨
For the past two days I´ve been posting on the subject of Purity Cults that have been spawned at The Anglican Communion and beyond. It seems Purity Cult recruiting is a result of emotional/spiritual instability, great EGO strivings for wealth/greed, religious selfrighteousness and ¨better-than-others-ness¨...endless demands/assurances for eternal salvation, pridefilled EGOS running riot or even secret sexual ¨longings¨ threatening ¨exposure¨ of lack of PURITY from within.
Cult recruiting is often done as the result of war-mongering and/or by the victimization/exploitation done to REAL HUMAN BEINGS during/aftermath of BLOODY REAL WAR (tribal, civil and international). Fear/hate and bigotry are also promoted amongst Cult leaders. The active demoralization and demonization of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgendered or even any other ¨difference¨ such as customs, religion, tribe, color, region, intelligence/lack of, or even physical/mental or spiritual ¨imperfections¨ too.
You Cockroach! You Slug! You Fagot! You Slimebag! You Heathen! You Godless Piece of Sh*t! You Sl*t, You Who*e, You Lunatic! You Sinner! You Fu*king Liberal! You Degenerate Queer! You ABOMINATION!
¨The ´Demand for Purity´ serves to lower a member's self esteem. More specifically--in many groups there is a demand for ´sexual purity´ people may not have known this when they first joined.¨
I believe many fearfilled family members, coworkers and loved ones/friends have been misled on the subject of LGBT Christians/others at Church and at everyday life. Sometimes generations of shame and blame have been used to torment LGBT family members to ¨fix¨ them...sometimes devastating economic threats and/or immediate physical outcasting from the family are used as tools for curing, so called, LGBT ¨abominations.¨
Often these pridefilled/selfrighteous threats, from bigots, family or not, lead to suicide or other forms of self-destruction, such as alcoholism or drug/sex addiction, for the victims of such brutal family and social abuse.
Misled by more-than-rightest politicos and some religious extremists, some of OUR family members and friends, have chosen to actively CULTIVATE the persecution and discrimination, legal or not, of LGBT people. We have seen illegal attempts, in our face, on television, in the News, on Talk Shows as ¨excluders and demonizers¨of LGBT people proclaim a not-so-subtle desire for a social/sexual orientation cleansing...a cleansing that is clearly perverted and often stems from personal religious/social and/or emotional instability...a need for immediate self-searching, the admitting of wrong done against others and sometimes even psychological treatment too might help the abusers of LGBT Christians/others. The instigators of fear, hate and CULT PURITY are a emotionally/spiritually troubled lot who aggressively and defiantly inflict harm on innocents...often gravely.
LGBT family, friends and everyday people have always been with you. We have listened endlessly to slanderous and hateful nonsense (mostly) generated against us as we sat next to you at Church, at school, at work and at play. We have heard and seen it all, in terms of filth and hate crimes, that have been spewn forth and been acted-out upon us by religious fanatics and their purity cult followers...

Religious cults with dangerous and immoral leaders who wish us persecution, imprisonment, injury and death...we have heard the same sort of everyday vile viciousness from thugs on the street and amongst associates with very bad, and insensitive, levels of judgment...we now have listened to the same type of hateful ignorant rantings at The Anglican Communion preached by honorless grandstanders, bigots and thieves.
We´ve listened, now, it´s YOUR turn to listen.
A Gay Horsethief is a Gay Horsethief. A Heterosexual Bankrobber is a Heterosexual Bankrobber. Both stealing horses and robbing banks, or plotting with others (sexual orientation unimportant) to do so, are crimes...no matter who does it, even if a Closet Lesbian or a Celibate Nun did it or a Rabbi with 12 Children or a Married Bisexual Accountant. Got it? That´s equality, that´s justice, that ought be REALITY...most religious folks/others would call thieving a sin (and a deadly one along with lieing for a native/ancient Inca).
Nobody is going anywhere. Nature is going to have to take it´s course...LGBT Christians/others must be and are responsible for their own actions (mostly) and so MUST BE heterosexuals (surely you read the news). The true character of a individual has NOTHING to do with sexual orientation (surely you read the news). Forget it. No matter what bigotted junktalk, twisted Scriptural selective slander or personal apprehensions or acute loathings YOU have subscribed to. Clear your head of needless, fearfilled and angry, anti LGBT inner chatter.
Being responsible and accountable, EACH ONE of us, in a mirrored innermost reflection before ourselves, our fellows and God represents GENUINE personal integrity. Being held personally responsible for ones tainted thoughts, viscious actions or loving acts/beliefs is the test of true self-worth and honorability. The days of damning and spewing PRETENDED wrongs by loud, thieving, grandstanding and often ignorant cultish hipocrites who judge/condemn OTHERS is nearly over.
Those of you who refuse to seek help, and reach out from underneath your obsessive and cultish anti Gay ¨sickness¨...well, I pray you´ll find strength and willingness to find a self-searching place. I suggest that you get authentic spiritual, and loving, guidance and the professional emotional help that you may need as soon as possible.

REAL HERO/REAL LIFE: Bishop John Shelby Spong
“I was simply interpreting a rising consciousness,” he said. “Whether it was race or women or homosexual people, the issue was always the same: fighting against anything that dehumanizes a child of God on the basis of an external characteristic.” Bishop John Shelby Spong (click on his photo)
IT GETS BETTER--Archbishop Desmond Tutu supports LGBT full acceptance and inclusion too!
¨Churches say that the expression of love in a heterosexual monogamous relationship includes the physical, the touching, embracing, kissing, the genital act - the totality of our love makes each of us grow to become increasingly godlike and compassionate. If this is so for the heterosexual, what earthly reason have we to say that it is not the case with the homosexual?¨ Anglican Archbishop Desmond Tutu
