Norman Goldwasser, by day, is an Orthodox Jewish therapist at Horizon Psychological Services who compares homosexuality to Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and misleads clients by claiming that their sexual orientation can be changed with his special brand of quack therapy, which is rejected by every respected medical and mental health association.
By night, an undercover investigation by Truth Wins Out has found, he solicits sexual partners on Manhunt, a gay dating App, using the profile “Hotnhairy72.”
During our operation, Goldwasser, going by the pseudonym “Dave”, offered to meet for sex with our operative, “Brandon,” at a Fort Lauderdale motel room. Goldwasser also had a profile on Bear Nation by the same name.
This latest scandal comes as the new movie Boy Erased(Starring Lucas Hedges, Nicole Kidman, and Russell Crowe) has brought a renewed spotlight to the issue of the harm caused by “ex-gay” programs.
Goldwasser has begged Wayne Besen the owner of Truth Wins Out who broke the story for mercy.
Besen responds: I reminded Goldwasser that he was asking for sympathy he never afforded his victims, some teenagers, as he coldly collected their money and ruined their lives. I also told him that only caring about his own predicament without apologizing for the harm he caused other people was narcissistic — something he could, unlike homosexuality — fix by visiting a real therapist.
Donald Trump is still the answer to many conservative evangelical leaders’ prayers. Or at least to their continuing grievances. They embrace Trump the policymaker, says Family Research Council president Tony Perkins, despite being uneasy about Trump as a man.
“We kind of gave him — ‘All right, you get a mulligan. You get a do-over here,’” Perkins told me in an interview for the latest episode of POLITICO’s Off Message podcast. Weigh a paid-off porn star against being the first president to address the March for Life, and a lot of evangelical leaders insist they can still walk away happy.
Evangelical Christians, says Perkins, “were tired of being kicked around by Barack Obama and his leftists. And I think they are finally glad that there’s somebody on the playground that is willing to punch the bully.”
What happened to turning the other cheek?, I ask. “You know, you only have two cheeks,” Perkins says. “Look, Christianity is not all about being a welcome mat which people can just stomp their feet on.”
Remember Tony Perkins and the Christian Nationalist motto: It’s only a sin if we don’t like you.
Texas Governor and failed GOP Presidential candidate Rick (I’m not gay. – Yes you are.) Perry who not only stands for small government and has steadfastly opposed President Obama’s Affordable Health Care Act must have balls as big as his state because he is currently asking the White House for more than $100 million in order to help expand a Texas program called Community First Choice.
“The Affordable Care Act grants state funding to expand a program called Community First Choice, which aims to improve the community-based medical services available to disabled and elderly Americans. The wildly popular program is administered through Medicaid and could prevent thousands of disabled and older Americans from being uprooted from their homes and into a long-term care facility for their treatments. Approximately 12,000 Texans could take advantage of it in the first year alone.”
And what is Rick Perry defense. Its okay its for the old people and disabled. The poor can just go screw themselves.

“Gay marriage advocates are trying to build up a boycott of Ender’s Game because of Orson Scott Card’s personal views on marriage. It seems very strange to me that so many artists and people on the left are supporting the idea that to make art in the mainstream you have to have the right political opinions. This used to be considered the heart of McCarthyism: loyalty oaths for filmmakers as the condition forworking in the film industry. (These were imposed by the industry, not the government, remember, in response to public pressure). I suspect this boycott will be a failure, like the boycott of Card’s video game and like the Chick-fil-A boycott, because most of the public is more concerned with questions such as whether those waffle fries are banging or not.”.
So says Moogie –Maggie Gallagher, writing for the National Review and just happens to be the ex-head of the National Organization for Marriage which Card sat on the Board of and donated countess amounts of money and time to so they could promote their anti-gay rhetoric and hate.
As was commented on Gallagher’s ridiculous blog is the fact that the right has called for boycotts of these companies for their support of same-sex marriage alone on companies such as:
Blue Cross Blue Shield
Johnson & Johnson
Walt Disney Company
But the real hypocrisy in her post is that Gallagher’s own organization The National Organization for Marriage recently started the “Dump Starbucks” And “Dump General Mills” boycotts because both companies support civil rights for LGBT people.
And what the hell does banging waffle fries have to do with anything? I’ don’t think there’s a verse in Leviticus that says this is an abomination.
But leave it to Maggie to bring food into everything. After all her it now seems that her weight problem might be caused by the two mouths that she has to to go with her two faces.
Kirk Cameron has released a statement to ABC News about all the hoopla that has occurred with him being called out because of his intolerant, religious extremist remarks that he made on the Pier’s Morgan show over the weekend when he stated that that homosexuality is “unnatural, detrimental” and “ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization.”
According to Ms. Cameron he’s being “slandered”
I spoke as honestly as I could, but some people believe my responses were not loving toward those in the gay community. That is not true. I can assuredly say that it’s my life’s mission to love all people. I should be able to express moral views on social issues, especially those that have been the underpinning of Western civilization for 2,000 years — without being slandered, accused of hate speech, and told from those who preach ‘tolerance’ that I need to either bend my beliefs to their moral standards or be silent when I’m in the public square. I believe we need to learn how to debate these things with greater love and respect,” and added, “I’ve been encouraged by the support of many friends (including gay friends, incidentally).”
Growing Pain’s stars Tracey Gold and Alan Thicke have responded via Twitter to ex co-star and and current hass been religious ectremist Kirk Cameron’s statements that “Homosexuality is unnatural” on Piers Morgan’s talk show last week.
Tracey Gold posted “I am a strong supporter of the #LGBT Community, and I believe in equal rights for all. #NOH8 #LOVE” and changed her profile picture to a shot of her participating in the “NO H8” campaign.
Alan Thicke who played Cameron’s on screen televisions father Jason Seaver tweeted – “I’ll deal with Kirk’s comments as soon as I recover from Rush Limbaugh’s.”
No word from Joanna Kerns who is probably out on a shooting range or attending an NRA convention or Leonardo DiCaprio as of yet.
There is an area in Griffith Park where you can take the kiddies for a train ride. A certain actor used to enjoy taking men for another kind of ride in the same area. He would cruise the park, pick up a guy, and then hook up with them in his car. The really ironic thing here is that the actor is so religious that when he was a teen heartthrob (a couple of decades ago) he used to insist that any dialogue that was even the slightest bit sexual or profane be removed from his lines because they violated his sense of decency. He’s all grown up now – and still cruises for guys – but we’re sure his wife really appreciates what a moral man she married.
Interesting that not long after the Blind Item above was posted across the Internet Kirk Cameron, who’s got the prettiest white teeth anyone ever cum over was on a “very special episode” of Piers Morgan last night spouting his anti-gay, religious bullshit.
Keep on spouting the crap hypocrite until you get caught. and remember PLEASE use a proper garbage receptacle and don’t throw your used condoms into the woods of the park.
So just HOW sleazy can the story of self loathing AZ anti-immigration GOP/Tea Party closet case Sheriff Paul Babeu get? Pretty sleazy it looks likes with questions now arising if gay Democratic Tucson State Representative Matt Heinz broke ranks with the party and helped send a seven-figure sum of money to Babeu’s pet project of the Border Fence because they were “special friends” with emails stating that less than a week Heinz voted for the project Babeu was spending a weekend “sleepover” at Heinz’s house
A telling paragraph at the end of Monica Alonzo’s original article of how Sheriff Paul Babeu allegedly threatened his Mexican ex-boyfriend “Jose” with deportation if he didn’t keep his mouth shut seems to points to the fact that Babeau, Heinz, and Heinz’s partner may have had a “special relationship”
Openly gay Tucson state Representative Matt Heinz was one of two Democratic lawmakers who broke ranks with the party in March 2011 and voted to give Babeu $5 million to combat border violence. Other lawmakers opposed the measure, in part, because Babeu’s county is at least 70 miles from the U.S.-Mexico border. The measure finally was pared down to $1.7 million and passed by the Legislature.
About a week after Heinz’s nod to Babeu, the sheriff spent the night at Heinz’s home, text messages that Jose shared with New Times show.
“I’m at Mat Heinz and his boyfriend for dinner & ice cream . . . we are going out to bar and . . . to their house. [Am] staying over,” Babeu texted to Jose at 1:04 a.m. last April 2.
Now even though Heinz is an openly gay Democrat it would be irresponsible, unfair, and show a majow lack of integrity or any journalist, gay or straight, or any LGBT advocate or activist to look the other way when a gay state representative breaks party ranks to support a local closet-case GOP – Tea Party sheriff’s unusual, multi-million dollar anti-immigration budget request, and then maybe ends up in bed with that sheriff a few days later.
Everyone by now has heard of Sheriff Paul Babeu who after building a reputation as a rising, conservative star by taking a hardline stance against illegal immigration, attacking the Obama administration and was state campaign co-chair for anti-gay Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign was outed as being gay and that was involved in a relationship with a Mexican immigrant who claims the sheriff threatened to have him deported if he revealed their relationship.
Well tonight Babeau appeared on Wolf Blitzer to defend himself over the allergations of his massive hypocrisy and abuse of power. But what many have missed is that Babeau’s boyfriend “Jose” also has appeared on CNN and spoken out.
Anti-Gay Minnesota Congressman Chip Cravaak is a truthful portrait of a REAL Tea Party member.
Cravaak who pushed his way s into office during the 2010 midterm election on the Tea Party platform and has voted for the Paul Ryan plan to kill Medicare and had bashed unions during his election campaign enjoys all the benefits of BEING A UNION MEMBER
Turns out Cravaak worked as a pilot for Northwest Air, and being a pilot means that you are automatically a union member, thus receiving the benefits of union negotiated salaries, vacations and ultimately, disability payments. And according to financial records released by Cravaak himself, the Tea Party Representative received $92,273 from disability payments in 2010 alone.
So while Cravaak was busy bashing “big government” and unions, he was also busy cashing disability checks made possible by the Unions he so despises.
Cravaak also receives government run health care as a military veteran, meaning he can walk into any government owned medical facility to receive medical care and the taxpayer picks up the tab. He enjoys what he and the Tea Party call “socialized medicine” even as he votes to strip senior citizens of their own government health care
What a shining example of the GOP, the Tea Party, and being a massive asshole and hyporite.
