Jay, I'm sure your a good man and you probably have some questions about your sexuality, however your last comment sounds a lot like the country version of Jeffrey Dahmer.....

Brokeback mountain is a beautiful film and if people just accepted the story for what it is - a tale of unrequited love they would soon realise that being gay is not something unnatural or wrong - you simply can't help who you all in love with.

Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger are also incredible in the film. Hollywood rarely produces actors who can portray such passion and emotional depth.

It is refreshing to see a film that is honest, unpretencious and nothing like the usual superficial crap that have come to personify the american film industry.

I think there are much better materials to write movies about. I don't think that gay movies of young men are benefial to future generations. There is a cure for gay it's called aids... So if you want to insert your penis into another mans rectum then risk the possibility of dying like a dog. Is it really worth it? Don't some of you people see that that Gods laws clearly stated in the bible save you from many problems? It's about self control and abandoning your sinful nature and turning to God. You only have 1 chance to live and be pleasing to God. Sincerely- Mary (a woman who has repented for her past behavior and has learned)

congrats to "Brokeback Mountain" and all those involved in making it!!!! It took a lot of guts and talent to make this movie and make it so well. I love the movie because it makes a person think and ask questions afterward. It haunts you for days, weeks and sometimes months after you see it. If anyone thinks two people falling in love is bad....well there are problems in that thinking. As my momma always said......
Jesus is cool.....those who represent him seldom are!
I really feel bad that the world we live is a mean world. People say that all the time but they dont realize they are talking about themselves. I am a straight man, but I was very moved by this movie. I just feel bad for the ignorant, close minded people that believes everything the Bible tells them. First of all, the bible was never WROTE by God. It was wrote at a time where the Church wanted to that control of the world torturing people and controling them, using people as lab mice! I sincerely believe that all big discussions of the world have the bottom cause of religion and we need to end that. We are all the same!
Only God can judge us and he is going to judge us of how much good of a person we were and we did in our lives, not by ur religion, sexuality or race! Think about that. He is going to judge us of how we respect people, how peaceful we are! Falling in love is a NATURAL thing and therefore God does not disaproves that. I just really hope that that world opens the mind and starts to accept people the way they are, jews, black people, gays, white people, the way they are!

First I must say I didn't see this movie and won't unless someone pays me a lot of money to. I must confess though, until this movie came along, I always assumed cowboys walked their 'walk' because of riding horses.....boy was I surprised....LOL. Seriously though.....YUCK! Living in the newly hated state of SD, I think I can safely say we're a bit embarrassed that the author of this piece of trash is from here. First of all, if there's a gay cowboy in SD, he's really deep in the closet because he wouldn't last long in the 'cowboy' world here. We are not a gay friendly state.
I agree, all gays should be either beaten straight or they can leave the U.S. and find a deserted island, because I don't like them and neither does anyone else.

Good for them for bringing their families out for the festivities! Just because the government refuses to give them "legal partnership status" doesn't mean that they don't enjoy life like everyone else does. We all can "pretend" they don't exist; refuse to give them equal rights, but never-the-less that won't stop them from going about their every day business, including Easter festivities.

GDD, I haven't seen the movie yet, but I will eventually. As for you other two narrow-minded bigots (Linda and Alex)... nobody's forcing anything down your throats. Choose not to see the movie, but don't try to force your will on others! Last time I checked, America with a secular government with all the FREEDOM that goes along with it (although with all the bible thumpers in power these days, I'm not sure how long before America will resemble a Taliban ruled Afghanistan!!!)
First of all, You never judge! I think that is what you are doing when you are talking about this "Bible thumpers". Someone who is proud of where they stand with GOD is there business and if they want to share,like you said, they have the " freedom" to tell you how they feel. Second, I have a gay aunt and I am not about to judge her. She knows how I feel about the way she lives. In return she don't say anything about the way I CHOOSE to run my life. See they only person you need to worry about is yourself. Live by this quote"Nobody is better then me, and I am better then nobody. I, myself choose to see the movie on my own. IT IS JUST A MOVIE. We see it in really life, why not make money aff af it

But before his death there were some document he gave to me and he told me that everything he worked for in his life time is in the document when i crosscheck the document i discovered that my late father deposited 10 Million dollars in a security company. my late father deposited the money as family valuables in a trunk box.
The reason i am telling you is that i am just a girl and there is little or nothing i could do on my own and again if my late father relative find out that my late father left that kind of money in my care i don't know what they might do to me, so i need you to help me contact the security company and claim the deposited Item for me as my friend and Guandian, and take me along with you.

Has anyone Read Howard Hughes, the secret life? It seems some of Hollywoods greatest western hero's were homo or bio-sexual. Randolph Scott carried on affairs with Cary Grant and Howard Hughes for years. What ever the Bible says about Homosexuality, It also says God will be the judge not us. I'm a straight female, I'll live life my way and you live it yours and we won't judge each other.

I bet that Linda rushed out to see The anti-ssemitic the Passion of the Christ along with practically every other Christian who hates Jews, because there bible says Jews killed Jesus and that non-christians will perish in hell. Theree's always a double standard when it comes to non-christians, as if Christians are somehow saints and can do no wrong when history has proven otherwise. The film Industry like most of the actors and actresses are predominately Jewish, Half-Jewish and Multicultural and not the lily white Christians that you'd like to think they are, just because you worship those stars so much. If you knew what they erally were you probably wouldn't see them the same. Biggots like you never can.

Let me see "News Flash", sounds like to me that you have a one track mind. You seem to theink that your way is the right way and everyone else is wrong...so here is a newsflah for you...Christians are not the ones you need to harp on. You need to take a step back and look at your life. I am not saying that christians are perfect, we are all human and make mistakes. No one said anything about Jews...You are bringing up a subject that has nothing to do with the one we are talking about. See I don't have to pay for your life. I am strong enough in my faith that I can get on here and tell you how I feel and back it you with facts. The the hell thing....If you are not saved(you know believe that christ was hung on the cross and rose again for my sins) then you are going to go to hell. And just because the Jews hung him there doesnt mean I hate them. I am happy that he did it for me and you! So "New Flash", Before you start something, try to find a subject you know more about! Thanks

Watch out for "Empress-ed: The Perils of a Closeted Night Club Creator". It's the story of my old boss William Kutschinski and his struggles as a gay man in a straight world of Danbury, CT nightclub life. OSCAR WORTHY! Mark my words.

Patriot, I don't care what gay people do, I just wish they could keep it more to themselves. It's hard to explain to a 10 year old boy that wants to know why men are dressed up like women. Frankly some of them look disgusting. About the equal rights, if it is not legal for them to marry, then that's just the way it is. Their are allot of things that I don't think are fair, but laws are laws.
