“The opposition is always going to throw stones, and that’s they’re way of discouraging,” anti-gay activist Bob Vander Plaats said. “I mean, Satan’s ways are not new under the sun, he wants to discourage, he wants to disappoint.”
A new play by the Rainbow Theatre project is opening soon and Satan has a leading role. DC native Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa wrote the wickedly humorous play which revolves around a love affair between a man and a guy who turns out to be the Prince of Darkness.
Broadway World offered the following description of the love story with a devilish twist:
Say You Love Satan is “a romantic comedy spoof of the Omen movies,” according to the playwright. It centers on graduate student, Andrew, who meets a handsome stranger named Jack, one dark and stormy night. Despite all the warning signs, and the fact that he already has a boyfriend, Andrew decides to make a go of it with Jack. And even though the warning signs include (literally) the number ‘666’ being emblazoned on Jack’s forehead, and his claims that the Devil is his father, Andrew throws caution to the wind; until he begins to realize there’s something even more sinister than his new boyfriend being exactly who he says he is.
A Michigan Republican currently running for a seat to the Republican National Convention said homosexuality is a tool of Satan used to prey on innocent children.
“Satan uses homosexuality to attack the living space of the Holy Spirit,” Mary Helen Sears wrote on a Republican site last year in a hate-filled rant. “If the GOP continues down this trend and stand for perversions and the daily social fad,” Sears continued, “The GOP will be truly dead and Satan will have had his day.”
When asked about Sears’ remarks, Michigan Republican Party communications director, Darren Littel refused to stand by his fellow Republican’s words, saying that the party respects all people and “these comments clearly don’t reflect those principles.”
