It's ok to have violence, thuggary, extortion, blackmail, rape, murder, and all sorts of mob violence on TV. BUT ... no gays... <sigh>

You should maybe read something OTHER than the bible. Clearly it's made you blind to the real world.

the disciple,

Yes, I know what the Bible says concerning homosexuality. But did you know that information has come to light in the past few years and many top notch biblical scholars now believe what is said in the Bible concerning homosexuality was NOT original scripture but added later (a gay-hater, no doubt)? Do the math. If God hates homosexuals, then why would He create them? I think you are worshiping a different God than I, becuase the God I worship does not hate anything or anybody ....... period! And to think that every word of every sentence of every paragraph in the Bible is the EXACT wording from the begininning is ridiculous. The Bible has been revised some many times and in so many languages, only God knows now what is said in the first printing.

But back to 'Brokeback Mountain'- there are queers, they are here, and they a'int goin' nowhere. We've been around just as long as heteros have been. See the movie 'disciple'. And learn something.

Good to see articles mentioning Jake Gyllenhaal, he's my favorite actor, and one has to see his influence on the media culture.

I sure don't need people to tell me what to read or how to worship. Mind your own business, pal. Keep your religion to yourself.

Hear,Hear. Exactly how I feel. When will all the "PERFECT" religious people in this world realize that they shouldn't be judging people. Isn't this what you learn in church???

If Christ ever came back, I’d kill him.

Because bible toting extremists like you are too blind to accept change.

What exactly about gay people scares you?

Whatever it is should be exploited, in attempt to get your kind to hide away and never bother any of us with your over zealous opinions again.

On second thought, I wouldn’t kill Christ, that’s what got this mess started in the first place.

I hope you die in a crusaide.

I've read the bible. I read lots of fiction.

You should read "The Poisonwood Bible" by Barbara Kingsolver. It's great and has lots of interesting facts about the Congo.

Another good book is "Geek Love" by Katherine Dunn. It's about circus freaks.

Do you have any other book suggestions?

In the New Testiment, it suggest that Paul may have been Homosexual and he asked the savior to take it away. The Savior declined him. I know the Savior loves Gay Men. We are the thirteen tribe of Israel. The tribe with all the talent, skill, good taste and of course.....looks!

So why is no one actually talking about the story here?

Who thinks Vito is getting wacked? Show of keyboards.

Here is a good link to the article

I love Vito....he is going through so much pain, hurting over his family, hurting over his feelings and emotions and not to mention the fact that he is going to get wacked by the mob. I loved it when vito walked into the antique store and he seemed like a child in a candy store. The only person that will save Vito will be Tony Soprano.....your just not so sure where he is on the issue as a whole. vito has been a very loyal friend and has done a great job for Tony making him a lot of money.

Hey, all you bible thumpers, I don't see ANY of you calling for death to adulterers. What a bunch of hypocrites you are. You can't cite the verses that suit your agenda and disregard the others.
PS: Did you enjoy your last ham sandwich or lobster dinner? "Read your bible". What a laugh!!

Lev 20:10
"And the man that committeth adultery with [another] man's wife,[even he] that committeth adultery with his neighbour's wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death".

John, what the hell does the above have to do with the Sopranos???? are you watching it? do you know who Vito is?

Hey, all you bible thumpers, you can't pick and choose the 'word of God'. It's all or none for you guys.
Did you enjoy your last BBQ or Surf & Turf dinner.

Deu 14:7 Nevertheless these ye shall not eat of them that chew the cud, or of them that divide the cloven hoof; [as] the camel, and the hare, and the coney: for they chew the cud, but divide not the hoof; [therefore] they [are] unclean unto you.

Deu 14:8 And the swine, because it divideth the hoof, yet cheweth not the cud, it [is] unclean unto you: ye shall not eat of their flesh, nor touch their dead carcase.

"Read your bible". What a laugh!! Maybe you should just concentrate as on...

Mar 12:30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this [is] the first commandment.

Mar 12:31 And the second [is] like,[namely] this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.

Yes, love your neighbour as thyself... even the ones you would persecute, alienate and deny thier rights.

This has nothing to do with the Sopranos and everything to do with 'the disciple', a Babylonian, I might add.

Any self respecting person of Italian heritage should be outraged that this show, which perpetates the Mafia stereotype is on the air. I understand this is the last season. Thank goodness.

Hey Hi-Jackers. Get out of this forum. If you can't talk about the actual topic of the articles then go start your own thread and quote bible verse til the second comming.

Now back to Vito...
I don't know if he was all that loyal. Wasn't he scheming with Pauly to cut Tony out of that big job. The man was in a coma and he was refusing to give money to the family that could have helped him.

I think Phil is going to be the one to wack him. That way Tony can have an excuse to take him out. Plus I'm sure Phil is still pissed at Tony for robbing him of the right to take revenge on Tony's cousin Tony.

I think Phil will be the one to wack off Vito, but my hope and prayer is that Vito's family will be taken care of and his wife remarries a mobster. Vito settles down and in that little town and opens a flower shop and meets a great guy. Vito Jr accepts his fathers new life and spends the summers with dad and BF.

I guess in reality, I think some how Tony is going to save Vitos ass....

How could someone say (who is gay) that if Christ came back he would kill him. Christ came as a radical to change the mind and hearts of men who did not believe. He came to love, heal and forgive. God sent not his son into the world to condemn the world but that the world thru' him might be save. God will always (ALWAYS) love the sinner but not the sin. Real Men Love Jesus! Wise men still seek him.
