In recent years we have been
forced to watch countless radical
homosexual groups parading
across our television screen
trying to tell us that
homosexuality is completely
normal behavior, and anyone
who disagrees with their
position is a homophobe.
They stoop to such tactics as
trying to have that person or
persons censored, which
amounts to the same
intimidating tactics that they
accuse their opposition of doing.
To say that a person is a
"homophobe," or use the grossly
misused word "homophobia"
means that they are accusing
their opponents of being
mentally ill.
Hence "phobia" which is $ 1
mental disorder characriegi by

Once again it is time for Ask
Mister Language Person, the
column whose motto is: "People
Judge You By The Words You
Use, So Use Words That
Nobody Really Understands,
Such As 'Parameter.'
Today, as is our custom, we
shall start with our first
Q. I have noted that the slang
expression `"coal" is being used
once again by young people. Is
this good?
A. Yes. Mister Language
Person approves of any language
trend that makes him feel like a
"hep cat," so he 's pleased to
hear young people bringing back
"lingo" from the days when he
was Mister Language Teenager
and the Earth's crust was still
warm. Mister Language Person
would like to see the return of
other expressions from his
youth, such as "in the gnme,".
"shake your booty" and "boss."
Q. What does "boss" mean?
A. It means "cool" as in these
examples: "Duane got a boss
carburetor." "Michelangelo
painted some boss frescoes."
Q. Was "Michelangelo" his
first name or his last name?
A. Neither. It was just his
fresco name. His full name, on
his driver's licence, was "Vito."
Q. Recently I made the
statement: "I'm so hungry I
attraction bet waaiipliVi and
females. Seeing that homoicaual
behavior is the result of a
biological abnormality, it is
quite certain that science will
find a way to create the chemical
balance which homosexuals
lack. Of course, radical
homosexuals would be livid if
such a thing was ever found
because nothing could be worse
than being attracted to the
opposite sex.
To further demonstrate the
abnormality of homosexual
behavior, we must look at the
most basic of things: the logic
of the biological purpose of both
sea and gender. We need to lock
at the male and f—onaloi.maray,
which is deaiguid for

means fear. So homophobia
maims kw of man.
It is not a fear that most
heterosexuals have toward
homosexuals themselves, but
rather a revulsion toward the
homosexual act itself.
Heterosexuals place themselves
in the act which of course leaves
them with a sour stomach.
The greatest thing that is
wrong with radical homosexuals
is their "in your face attitude?
They expect you to say
homosexual behavior is perfectly
normal, and endorse their
actions. Forbid that you disagree
with them. and they will eel

Nature which clearly show that
sex is for reproduction of one's
species despite the side effects.
Radical homosexuals have
elevated their cause to the level
of civil rights. These are not just
any rights. They wish to have
their "relationships" classified as
marriages which is blasphemy in
almost every religion. Judeo-

on marriage can clearly be seen
in Genesis 1:27-e2B: "So God
created them: in the image of
God he created them male and
female. God blessed them and
