SORT BY Relevancy
A recent report said that two gay NFL players are refusing to come out publicly as gay because they don't want a lot of media attention for any kind of big announcement. It's an interesting revelation that both reflects and belies what we think we know about professional athletes.
On the one hand they want all the attention they can get to maximize exposure. Exposure means more of the all-mighty dollar that so many of them seek in the short span of their careers. On the flip side, we often hear that athletes don't want to be known as the "gay athlete" but just want to be known for their athletic accomplishments.
We discuss the idea of the media keeping athletes in the closet, and also the impact that big-name professional athletes can have when they come out publicly.
Plus, we have the growing attention being paid to trans issues in sports and the generosity of one young gay professional athlete named Robbie Rogers.
Fear. Depression. Anxiety. Thoughts of suicide. These are some of the emotions gleaned from closeted gay and lesbian coaches Outsports talked to during the men's Final Four in Indianapolis. Despite the progress society has made on gay issues, these coaches feel that their careers would be over if they ever came out publicly. So they hide or contemplate quitting the sport they love. One female coach said she knows of 50 closeted lesbian coaches. There are no openly gay male or female Division I coaches in the U.S.
The podcast also interviews writer Erik Hall, who has profiled several openly gay athletes, his latest being a college cross country runner.
Friday, June 26th, 2015 marks the day the United States Supreme Court (SCOTUS) completed what it started exactly three years to the day, June 26, 2013 when it announced a 5-4 Ruling in favor of the plaintiff Edith Windsor. On the eve of multiple Pride celebrations, in a 5-4 decision, SCOTUS ruled once again in favor of the Petitioners James Obergefell (et. al.). Result: marriage equality applies to all States of the United States of America.
In celebration of this historic event, we continue our conversation with Garrett Miller! In our last show, we heard both how and why he created to song Blond Jesus. This episode, we hear both Garrett's backstory and short version of a song rocking the charts - Gay Wedding!

Though an Unorthodox and Unauthorized Version
We have found it to be acceptable and is approved by the Celtic Cross Foundation of Ministry for use with our Protestant and Non-Denominational Worshipers.
So to our Catholic brothers and sisters in Christ, please don’t take offense. We understand Catholics and Protestants have specific theological differences and we can all get along because we share the same purpose, that is, a life with Christ and Heaven ever after. This is to say that stating with significant difference between the two denominations; Protestants don't put as much emphasis on Mary as do Catholics.
Protestants believe we don't need a mediator to talk to God. When the veil was torn from top to bottom (Mark 15:37-38) we believe God tore the veil as a symbolic act to say Christ's death removed the barrier that separated us from God. Now we can come to God ourselves at anytime and any place.
The following is just our Protestant Version of the Dalriadan Celtic Rosary Prayer, using God, and Christ to worship rather than Mary, and encompass purposeful communication between God, Jesus, and you.
There is a third video that has been released exposing the Planned Parenthood's selling of Baby Parts. Will the government vote to defund them? Obama, in his world of delusions, recently stated that he was a good president and could win a 3rd term if he was able to run. Kenya rejects the idea of Gay Obama's initiatives to sodomize their country. News that You can Use as it relates to the Bible and End Times.

There is a lot of angst between Conservative Christians and the LGBT movement, The LGBT Community calls us bigots and homophobes, and the Conservative Christians call them heathens and hellbound. Something I have learned in over 32 years of ministry and 40 years of being a Christian is "ALL have sinned and fallen short of God's GLORY", It seems like every week another "pillar" of the community is falling (The Duggars son and the ex-speaker of the House) BTW THEY were Conservatives, now I am not taking sides either way because every human on this planet has something that they "Keep in thge Closet"......what is in YOUR closet" I think everyone that calls themselves a Christian needs to read Psalm 51 and I John 1:9 and examine YOUR heart before you judge someone elses....whats in YOUR closet? (BTW only Jesus can clean the closet)

Gay marraige is a hot topic but why is it? The Lord has said certain outcomes will happen before he returns what does gay marriage has to do with it? lets see on tonights show.
in Self Help
Friday's Supreme Court's passage of gay marraige as the law of the land should be the culmination of the Gay Movemen'ts political aspirations. But the amount of hate speech, virtiol and verbal victory laps being taken by the Left since Friday fortell the intention of greater changes yet to come.
What is the real agenda of the Left? For activists and Progressives, was it about gay marriage or driving yet another stake into the heart of Judeo-Christian values and capitalism.
What is the focus that you and I need to take in order to protect values and principles that we hold dear? Join the discussion and contribute your thoughts
Satanic Temple, Boy Scouts Go Gay, Decoding the Future are just a few of the headlines of the day.

Last Friday, [most of] the Supreme Court ruled on the right side of history. Since this country was founded, an entire group of people have been marginalized and disenfranchised. Loved ones were barred from visiting their ill partners in hospitals. Basic tax and social benefits were denied. Appeals fell on deaf ears or were held up in the bureaucracy indefinitely. Today, The Fruit is proud to say that America has taken a giant leap toward equality for all. Friday's 5-4 decision to legalize marriage in all states and territories, did not come without it's share of criticism, however. Opponents decried that five unelected lawyers do not have the authority to decide the will of the American people, while others slammed the Justices for rewriting the Constitution. Some Republican hopefuls [*cough* Huckabee *cough*] even said that the Supreme Court “cannot overrule [g]od” on gay marriage. Many have lambasted the Court's ruling with warnings of [g]od's wrath or the coming persecution of Christians. To those grumbling about marriage equality, The Forbidden Fruit crew has one thing to say to you. Love wins! You lose! Get over it! Call in and tell us how you celebrated the ruling or why you think it was a mistake.
