March 8, 2010 links for 2010-03-08 by Hawthorn Mineart, under Recently Read marie osmonds poor gay son killed himself – Roseanne Barr I did not realize he was gay. That puts a whole different spin on things. How sad – and how sad that they church was allowed to victimize the poor young man. It sounds like Marie Osmond drove her poor kid to suicide. (tags: lgbt issues, equality, bigotry religion) Chi March 8th, 2010 She’s now apologized for saying he was gay, like the statement needed an apology. And an apology coming from Roseanne? What’s next — the sun turns to blood? Check out http://joemygod.blogspot.com/2010/03/roseanne-retracts-osmonds-statement.html. Reply Steph March 8th, 2010 I see she changed her “apology” statement now, too, to say that she’s sorry that she upset Marie Osmond, which is probably fair. It’s hard to say, given that we don’t know many facts. As they pointed out in the comments at Joe.My.God, just because some friends he isn’t gay doesn’t mean he truly wasn’t. It’s possible he was deeply in the closet, especially because he was raised by a religious group that profoundly hates gay people. I wonder were the “he’s gay” rumor started and if it has grains of truth. Reply Leave a Reply to Chi Cancel reply Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
