Parents form "prayer circle" over gay stage kiss

Parents form "prayer circle" over gay stage kiss
Quote:The “kiss” wasn’t even real. It was a “stage kiss”, meant to give that impression without actually doing anything. It’s not unusual in theater. It’s called “acting.”

High schoolers are certainly old enough to understand there are same-sex relationships. It’s one thing to say the play wasn’t fully age-appropriate, but if that argument is pinned on two men pretending to kiss, it’s a weak one.

This “prayer circle” is just another way for pious evangelicals to feign persecution while pushing their anti-LGBTQ+ agenda. It’s unfortunate that the theater group and the school have apologized, because they were well within their rights.

Seems equitable.


Nothing of consequence happened on stage so a buncha self- righteous blowhards got together - and did nothing of consequence.

Edit to add -

You know the difference between a prayer circle and a circle jerk??


In a circle jerk, when you're done - at least you have SOMETHING to show for your efforts.

So essentially, these parents were praying to make something that never actually happened go away.  This will turn out to be the most effective prayer in history:

‘What are you praying about?’

‘A gay kiss.’

‘It was a stage kiss - it didn’t happen.’

‘PRAISE JESUS!!!’

Eedjits.

At least when I play D&D I know that it's mere fantasy. These people are doing Live Action Role Playing and thinking that it's real.

And that's why it's dangerous.

I don't know what they think prayer is going to accomplish. God has had plenty of time to help these bigots out and has done nothing, looks like God might not be interested in listening to them.

1. They ask god, outloud, to cure the gay away.
2. They ask god, in their minds, to curse the gay.
3. They expect results this time because THEY are doing the asking.
