Who You Callin’ Queer?

“All the world old is queer save thee and me, and even thou art a little queer.” Robert Owen

‘Joe’ the ‘plumber’ gave an interview to the Colorado Independent where he expressed his Christian love for everybody–even those friends he doesn’t let near his children.

People don’t understand the dictionary–it’s called queer. Queer means strange and unusual. It’s not like a slur, like you would call a white person a honky or something like that. You know, God is pretty explicit in what we’re supposed to do–what man and woman are for. Now, at the same time, we’re supposed to love everybody and accept people, and preach against the sins. I’ve had some friends that are actually homosexual. And, I mean, they know where I stand, and they know that I wouldn’t have them anywhere near my children. But at the same time, they’re people, and they’re going to do their thing.

This amazes me. How on earth does he define friendship? Or love?

And that ‘man and woman’ thing. Newsweek describes him as a twice-divorced single father. Does he subscribe to the Old Testament style of divorce? The New Testament is pretty restrictive. But maybe his church grants annulments. It works for Newt.

And what’s up with the shaved head?

Mr. Clean’s appearance with his tight muscle shirt, ear piercing, stylishly handsome looks, fastidious habits, and helpful but deferential persona in television commercials, has made Mr. Clean into something of a gay icon.

Sam Wurzelbacher doesn’t wear an earring, but the resemblance is remarkable. I’m not a Christian, so I don’t have to try to love him. As a patriotic American I will defend his right to express his opinion. He may be a great help to the Democratic party.

Like Sam, I have given some thought to the root meaning of the word ‘queer’. If he’s normal, then queer doesn’t look so bad.
