Burn down the mission!
Never write when you are tired...
Remember when Elton John wasn't so queer? I think it was 1971 and he was touring for his "Tumbleweed Connection" album and he was playing at the Guthrie. It was one of the best concerts I had ever seen. The album was his best as far as I am concerned. And to my knowledge, which was pretty dim in those days, I do not think anyone knew he was gay. Although alot of the "pop star" crowd was in attendance. Nevertheless, Elton was considered sort of "underground" at the time, at least he was here - I mean, KQ played him- how hippie was that?
Now he is saying that the death from AIDs of his friends, and probably everyone else, is the fault of the Catholic Church and the teaching against condom use. He's a fruitcake! (Oh, yeah, we knew that!) Really, he's completely illogical and irrational. What a stupid thing to say. Check out the piece on Life Site News: http://www.lifesite.net/ldn/2006/may/06052406.html
When the AIDs thing broke out, for sure you would never have been able to find a homosexual even thinking about condoms. (Straight people used them for contraception, right?) Furthermore, since homosexuals do not listen to the Church when she teaches homosexuality is an intrinsic moral disorder while homosexual acts are gravely sinful, why the heck would they listen when the Church says condoms are immoral? Elton - you're just being a bitch! Now I think I know what the song "Burn Down the Mission" meant, I'll have to tell my friend Donna because she never knew either.
