Psychotic Christian Hate

      Christian religious fanatics in the United States, especially evangelicals, could be judged to have
mental health issues demonstrated by their irrational hatred of others.  We often hear the terms
crazy Muslim fanatics used to describe the hatred of Islamic extremists when they kill innocent
people and express a desire to eradicate the Western way of life.  Christian religious fanatics want
to eradicate any lifestyles that do not conform with their extremist interpretations of life based
upon the Christian Bible.  Also, Christian religious fanatics, like Muslim religious fanatics, actually
look forward to the possible end of the world (rapture, end times, etc.) in which the entire human
population would be killed off.  These are crazy ideas and can be used to judge Christian religious
fanatics as crazy.
      The following article appeared in the Guardian newspaper in the United Kingdom.  The article
says that America's religious culture is "sick".
      Hate is what characterizes the beliefs of American Christian religious fanatics today.  It began
with the evangelical movement in the last century and has poisoned American culture since that
time.  Europeans are more rational in their beliefs as is exhibited by the articles below:
      Christian religious fanatics in the United States engage in hate speech against gays that often
leads to young gay teens committing suicide.  That is murder!  Europeans are more enlightened
on this subject because they do not believe the nonsense subscribed to by mentally unstable
American Christian religious fanatics.  Even Mexico and Canada have legislation to punish gay
hate speech as is evidenced by the two-page article below.
      Some famous gay people from human history are shown below.  Had any crazy Christian
religious fanatics criticized some of these people in their own time, the Christians would have
been imprisoned or even executed.  The ancient Romans did just that!  Good for them!
      Alexander the Great was a Macedonian Greek who conquered an empire that stretched
from Greece to India as shown below.
      Living from 356 to 323 B.C.E. (B.C.E. means Before the Common Era.  You should not use B.C.,
meaning Before Christ in any scientific works.) Alexander the Great led from the front and was often
wounded in battle.  The city of Alexandria in Egypt was named after him and generations of children
in his conquered territories were named after - even up to this very day.
      Alexander had two known gay lovers, Hephaestion and Bagoas.  Hephaestion was Alexander's
boyhood friend and companion in battle as an adult.  Bagoas was a Persian eunuch of exceptional
beauty.  At one banquet Alexander's soldiers encouraged Alexander to hug and kiss Bagoas because
they knew of Alexander's love for the boy.  Had anyone criticized Alexander for such a love affair in
his time, they would have been thought to be crazy.  Guilt about sex did not arrive until the Jewish
and Christian eras.  The author Mary Renault has written three fine books about Alexander, and The
Persian Boy tells of his love for Bagoas.  Two other books are Fire From Heaven and The Nature of
                             Roman Emperor Hadrian                                                     Antinous
      The Roman Emperor Hadrian was more interested in the arts than conquest, so he went about setting limits to Roman's conquests with such constructions as Hadrian's Wall in Britain.  Hadrian
ruled the Roman Empire from 117 C.E. to 138 C.E. (C.E. means in the Current Era and is preferred
to A.D. in scientific writing).  From 123 C.E. to 130 C.E. the young Antinous was Hadrian's gay lover
until Antinous drowned in the Nile River on a trip to Egypt.  Hadrian was devastated by his loss,
made Antinous a god and established games in his honor in Egypt that lasted for 500 years.  The
love between Hadrian and Antinous was one of the great love stories of all time and regarded as
such by historians.
      Love relationships between men were accepted in both the Greek and Roman worlds no matter
what the status of the lovers.  Since Hadrian didn't marry or have children, he named a successor
to the Roman Empire before he died in 138 C.E.
      The Greeks and Romans regarded sex as a normal part of life for enjoyment and procreation,
and they did not distinguish between the two.  When the Roman city of Pompeii was excavated
after being buried by an eruption of Mount Vesuvius for almost two thousand years, erotic art and
artifacts, such as the ones shown below, were found among the ruins.
                         Wind Chime Pompeii                                    Door Ornament Pompeii
      The human phallus in Rome was a symbol of success and fertility and also used to ward off
evil spirits.  Christian religious fanatics would be shocked to see such symbols openly displayed,
but they are idiots anyway.  The Romans, being a healthy population, saw nothing wrong with
displaying such items.
      Christian religious fanatics say that the Roman Empire was "decadent" and that was why it
eventually collapsed.  Actually it was Christianity that destroyed the Roman Empire and sent
humanity into the Dark Ages, from which we are still emerging in terms of human sexuality.
      Far from being "decadent," the Roman Empire had standards of behavior to be upheld like
any civilized society.  A favorite charioteer in a town in one Roman province brutally raped a young
slave boy.  The town officials arrested the charioteer and placed him in prison.  The people of the
town were outraged at the loss of their favorite charioteer, so they rioted, killed the town officials
and freed their favorite charioteer.  Roman troops arrived in the town to restore order.  Saying
that all had been forgiven, the commander of the Roman troops invited all the people of the town
to attend games to be held in the local arena.  The Roman troops then slaughtered everyone in
the arena.  Roman law was to be upheld at all cost.  The charioteer was also killed.
LEONARDO DA VINCI (1452-1519 C.E.)
                                         Leonardo da Vinci                                         Gian Giacomo Caprotti "Salai"
      Leonardo da Vinci was a true Renaissance man, being an accomplished painter, sculpture,
inventor and anatomist.  Leonardo was a huge intellect and thought to be one of the greatest men
that ever lived.  He never married, never had children or showed any interest in the opposite sex. 
In fact, in his notebooks Leonardo said the thought of male - female intercourse disgusted him.
      In 1476, at the age of 24, Leonardo, along with three other young men, was accused of sodomy
with a notorious 17-year-old male prostitute, Jacopo Saltarelli, in Florence, Italy.  Fortunately, two
of the three other young men were related to the powerful Lorenzo de Medici, and the charges
against all four were dropped.  But now we are in the time of the repressive and guilt-ridden
Christians.  In Greek and Roman times the charges would have been laughable.
      Leonardo surrounded himself with young men and he apprenticed 14-year-old Gian Giacomo
Caprotti who he nicknamed "Salai" which meant little devil because he was so mischievous.  Salai
stayed with Leonardo for 30 years until Leonardo's death in 1519.  Leonardo left the Mona Lisa
painting to Salai in his will.  Leonardo began painting the Mona Lisa in 1503 or 1504 in Florence,
Italy.  Leonardo traveled with the unfinished painting to France and did not finish the work until
shortly before his death in 1519.  The painting of Salai above and to the right was also done by
Leonardo.  Now compare it with the Mona Lisa below.  Did Leonardo actually paint Salai twice?
       There is no proof that Leonardo had a sexual relationship with Salai, and their relationship
might have been purely platonic.  We will never know for sure.
      James Buchanan was the 15th President of the United States, and he was a lifelong bachelor.
While they were both serving as Senators in Washington, D.C., James Buchanan shared rooms
with William Rufus King.  The two had a 23-year relationship.  The nature of that relationship has
been discussed at length, but it appears that James Buchanan was our first gay president.  Rufus
King was also a lifelong bachelor and would eventually become the only bachelor vice-president.
      Former President Andrew Jackson often referred to Rufus King as "Miss Nancy" and "Aunt
Fancy."  These labels were attached to gay men in the 19th century.  In a letter to President-Elect
James K. Polk Tennessee Governor Aaron Brown described Rufus King as Buchanan's "better
half" and as "Aunt Nancy."  Brown continued saying: "General Saunders, in the presence of Mr.
Buchanan and his wife (meaning Rufus King) and some others, advanced the opinion that neither
Mr. Calhoun nor Mr. Van Buren had any chance to be elected...and being asked by someone, who
then can be, he forgot himself and said that Colonel Polk could run better than any man in the
nation.  This of course was highly indecorous toward Mrs. B (meaning James Buchanan)"
      When Rufus King was appointed as Ambassador to France by President Polk in 1844, King
wrote to Buchanan saying, "I hope you will find no one to replace me in affection."  Buchanan later
wrote to a female friend, a Mrs. Roosevelt, that "I am now solitary and alone having no companion
in the house with me.  I have gone wooing several gentlemen but have not succeeded with any of
them.  I feel that it is not good for a man to be alone, and I should not be astonished to find myself
married to some old maid who can nurse me when I am sick, provide good dinners for me when
I am well, and not expect from me any very ardent or romantic affection."  King also wrote to
Buchanan from France saying, "I am selfish enough to hope you will not be able to procure an
associate who will cause you to feel no regret at our separation.  For myself, I shall always feel
lonely in the midst of Paris, for here I shall have no friend with whom I can commune as with my
own thoughts."  All other correspondence between Buchanan and Rufus King was destroyed by
relatives of the two men, but enough survived to confirm a gay relationship between the two.
      Bernard  Law  Montgomery was the highest ranking and most distinguished British military
figure from World War Two.  Twice wounded in World War I as a lieutenant, Mongomery rose
to the rank of major by war's end.  In 1927 Montgomery married Elizabeth Carver and they had
a son David in 1928.  In 1937 Montgomery's wife died from septicemia from an infected insect
bite.  Montgomery never remarried.
      Montgomery led British forces in North Africa during World War Two and commanded ground
forces for the "D-Day" invasion of France on June, 6, 1944.  Montgomery went on to help defeat
Nazi forces across France, Belgium and Germany.  Montgomery held positions in NATO and was
Chief of the General Staff in the United Kingdom.
      Field Marshal Montgomery is included here as representing the "repressed gay man."  The
official biographer of Montgomery, Nigel Hamilton, was befriended by Montgomery at the age of
eleven and their relationship lasted for 20 years.  Hamilton recounts receiving over 100 letters
from Montgomery that he described as passionate love letters.  However, Hamilton states that
the relationship did not involve any sexual contact with Montgomery.  It was in the late 1940's
that Montgomery befriended a 12-year-old Swiss boy, Lucien Treub.  As an adult Treub told how
Montgomery would bathe him when he was a young boy and then rub him dry with a towel.  But
Treub insists there was no sexual contact with Montgomery.
      In 1967 Montgomery spoke against the legalization of homosexuality in the United Kingdom,
but homosexuality was made legal in the U.K. with the age of consent being 16 years of age.
      Gays tend toward intellectual superiority when compared to the general population.  The high
school jocks, who are so admired by their mindless peers, tend to end up in positions that do not
require intellectual ability.  In fact, high schools these days are more like zoos than institutions
of learning.  Young gay teens should just stick it out and laugh at the high school jocks collecting
their garbage in later years.
      It is not uncommon for those most critical of gays to be themselves repressed gays.  There
have even been fundamentalist ministers exposed as having gay relationships in secret.  It is the
guilt that their Christian religious beliefs heaps upon these individuals that makes them so critical
of other gays.  Below is an example of a Christian minister sexually abusing "young men," who
are really teenage boys, while claiming to be "curing" the boys of their "gayness."
      There have been intelligent and productive gay individuals throughout human history.  The
list below is only representative and taken from a list of 1800 famous gay men.
      It was the advent of the monotheism of Judaism, Christianity and Islam, and the religious
fanaticism that these extreme belief systems engendered, that has led to the persecution of gays in
some parts of the modern world where these religions are endemic.  Prior to these extreme religions
the worship of various gods was like adopting a good luck charm.  There was no spirit-crushing guilt
associated with earlier religions.  A recent article about the study of the history of homosexuality in
China makes that point below.
      Throughout most of human history homosexuality has been accepted as a normal part of the
human existence.  In ancient China and during Greek and early Roman civilization homosexuals
were treated with dignity and respect.  It was only with the advent of the evil, sick and twisted
Christian religion that the persecution of homosexuals began. Monotheistic religions, but especially
the Christian religion, have been responsible for more death and destruction than any other
influence in human history.  Early in the Old Testament believers are told to burn their firstborn
children alive as a sacrifice to their worthless and evil god.  How can any rational person celebrate
such a heinous abomination?
