Lighter Fare

Are you male? Did you come of age in the 80’s? Are you gay? Ever wonder why? Well, Stephenson Billings over at the Christwire.com may have solved this most pressing question. And no, according to Billings, it had nothing to do with nature or nurture! Blame it on four old ladies in Florida!

Many studies have been done on why the gays love The Golden Girls, but science can’t fathom the moral challenges and social upheaval of those historic times. The 1980s was an epoch of President Reagan’s manly wisdom and the terrifying threat of Cold War annihilation. America had sobered up from the flashy lights of 1970s disco. We were skipping all night cocaine and sex parties to focus on our careers. Spiritual leaders like Jerry Falwell were telling us that Christianity was in the majority again. On the other side, there was a subculture of homosexuality creeping up on our youths. It gave them an excuse to wear tight jeans and to sneak off to public parks for quick releases with hairy men of different ethnicities.
