Mr. Hetero

In Western Massachusetts, where I am based, there is a local news story that reflects a bigger issue. A local preacher is running a "Mr. Hetero" contest. On the surface, this preacher intends this to be "funny" event. But what this is really is an anti-gay event. Most blatantly of all the organizers are planning to have a man who was saved from his "gay-lifestyle" by Jesus. "No one ever has anything for heterosexuals", the preacher offers as a reason for having this event. Obviously he is unaware or ignores the fact that most things that have anything to do with sexuality assume heterosexuality. The article below describes some of the resistance he is encountering.
