    This weekend, Georgetown University's Lecture Fund "proudly" sponsored a talk by controversial filmmaker Michael Moore. Moore is uninteresting to me. I don't believe what he puts in his movies and I certainly don't care about what he has to say. He bores me but sometimes what's interesting is other people's reaction to him.

    He is Catholic? Now that is a surprise as I didn't think he was anything - atheist? How sad he is. Don't care for him at all. Looks like he and Georgetown are two of a kind.

    It makes me sad when he wears the MSU hat. Don't bring down our school like that.

    Can anyone honestly say they're surprised? He's a lapsed Catholic at best and has zero regard for what he says. It's all in the name of comedy, just like Bill Maher.

    While I don't know Moore's heart, his allegiance to the Magisterium should be questioned.

    However, I think Georgetown invited Moore to show a different viewpoint.

    I just read something frightening though, apparently the hospital on Georgetown's campus does research using embryonic stem cells. Appalling! But they are not a pontifical university and as such form their own policies and enforce them independently.

    Tell you the truth, I once sent Michael Moore a letter...asking him to look into political meanderings that I was seeing. I didn't realize that he really doesn't care beyond the $$$.

    There are many people that have turned from God in such a terrible way. I pray for their return, through Lord Jesus Christ...the only path to God.

    p.s. I don't know how people that are not mentally ill and of sound mind, could ever blaspheme God. It seems very trendy right now to hate; however it is also trendy to call oneself Christian and not follow the Lord with love. Michael Moore is just following a trend...a follower not a leader.

    May the love of Christ be in us forever and ever....Amen

    I think you might want to close this thread down, this whole story seems to be tracable back to a satire Newspaper: The Weekly World News (famous for its articles about "Batboy")

    Here is the article (Which came out 1 to 2 days before everyone else seems to have picked it up)

    MICHAEL MOORE: “JESUS WAS GAY”[bless and do not curse]|[bless and do not curse]Weekly World News

    Here is the article about Moore's visit to Georgetown from the Hoya (the Georgetown Newspaper). Note that there is no mention of Jesus being gay in the Hoya's article.

    We seem to have been had by hysterical bloggers types who are just to lazy to check facts.

    Pardon me...I was lazy and did not check the article. I need to learn a little more, to keep my own personal opinion to myself. Thanks for setting the record straight. Still, the trend is there to hate. Perhaps not in MM's case, but I have seen some wickedness in the past while online.

    I feel rather foolish for writing what I did. My apologies.

    Yes it is.

    Horrible isn't it ?

    The only thing that will travel faster then the speed of light is slander about someone.

    Even one of the links you posted above annouces in its headline that its satire quoted from the Weekly World News .

    So are you saying Moore did not say it?

    I noticed you were very particular on the sources you listed. You a fan of satire?

    I have a sense of humor (its been pointed out several times by various people)

    I LOVE satire (also been pointed out several times)

    The article last week in the Onion about how now that DADT is history gay soliders are now openly getting "Dear John" letters is hilarious.

    But, like you and Nazi's, I brittle at satire being reported as fact by people too cruel, too lazy or too igorant of satire passing along third hand information from questionable soruces as fact.

    Like, for instance Fixed Noise News, a fair and balanced news service that can't even fact check this against the local student newspaper before throwing it up on its site.

    (This is by no means aimed at you, if you had to source everything you posted it would probably consume all your time and you'd never post this stuff which would be bad all the way around - thats why the rest of us are here, to actually discuss all this stuff you put up. I think you do a valuable service to OBOB searching the Web so we don't have to.)

    I love the Onion!

    I get what you are saying Charlie. We all have our peeves & things that get under our skin.

    And your complaint is valid.

    I'm trying to find a transcript of the speech now. I'm trying to figure out if this was satire from the get-go or if the speech fueled that satire along with what the man actually said.

    Well, no word for word transcript from what I can find. But it does seem he implied Jesus hanging out with 12 men being suspect. As well as a generous sprinkling of f-bombs throughout the speech.

    I think he should be punished by taking a shower on a regular basis. Go on Jenny Craig & wash his mouth out with a bar of Lava soap.

    He makes his money by being offensive on so many levels when his actual message that means something is enough to stand on it's own imo.
