IT'S A SHAME

Joe.My.God. Blogger Disinvited As Utah Pride Grand Marshal Due to “Mormon Power”

JoeMyGodJoe Jervis (right), the writer behind the award-winning queer blog Joe.My.God., won’t be helping Utah’s LGBT residents celebrate diversity and pride in Salt Lake City later this month as planned — due to his being disinvited. As Tony Adams reports on his blog Queer New York, Jervis had originally been announced to serve as co-grand marshal of Utah Pride along with out soccer player David Testo, but the blogger’s name was conspicuously absent from official press materials.

Adams investigated the slight by phoning Valerie LarabeeExecutive Director of Utah Pride Center, who explained the amount of power the Mormon church exerts in the LGBT community (!) and essentially placed full blame on a young male board member who considers Jervis an insult to the Latter-Days folks and insisted the blogger’s invitation be revoked out of concern for his Mormon friends.

Larabee revealed to Adams there may have been a more personal, vindictive reason for rescinding the offer to Jervis that had little to do with the blogger himself. Adams writes:

At this point Larabee spoke candidly about what may have been the real reason for the dumping of Jervis. She said that the young man who fought to disinvite Jervis resents her leadership and that his anti-Jervis action was really nothing more than a personal attack aimed at her more than Jervis. Because petty power struggles are not uncommon in Pride organizations, I found Larabee’s explanation plausible and I was impressed with her anguish over the disinvitation of a man who is well respected by her and by others within her organization. Larabee says she has apologized to Jervis and offered to bring him to Utah at her own expense to atone for what has happened. She said that Jervis has been extremely gracious in his acceptance of the disinvitation and that she admires the fact that he has avoided commenting about it on his blog.

UPDATE:

Adams has revised his blog posting to reflect the following correction requested by Larabee: “The young man who is against the invitation of Jervis is not himself a Mormon. He claims concern for his Mormon friends.” Queerty has updated its story accordingly.

    Gay mormons. Enough said. Curious why Joe would even want to step foot in Utah.

  • Dwayne420

    After reading this…pulling any support from that area of our community.

  • Deepdow

    @Dwayne420:

    I’m curious. What support were you putting in?

  • JAW

    Interesting that Joe would not post the story on his blog… he was all over bradley manning dis in SF

    sounds like he is censoring news from his readers… SHAME on him… and SHAME on the crew in SLC for not having the Brass Balls and Bras Knockers to stand up to one little twerp

  • 2eo

    Hey, today I learned the awesome news that a homophobic bigot killed himself in the Notre Dame cathedral. That’s great news, cheers Joe.

    I only wish there were millions more.

  • Bob

    I like Joe Jervis. I like JoeMyGod. I read it every day, correction, I read it several times per day. He is a fantastic writer and although I don’t think he is that much older than me, his experiences in a part of the gay community and a period in our shared history that I don’t share, give him a unique voice. In short, I respect him, and that’s high praise coming from me.

    All that being said, and I say this as a gay man who also identifies as Christian, he has no business being in a Utah Pride festival. His writings move beyond criticism of religion into condescension, hostility and ridicule. In Salt Lake City I am assuming there would be a large number of LGBT folks who also identify as Mormon and they deserve a Grand Marshal who will at least acknowledge their sincerely and deeply held beliefs, even if he does not share them.

    I know it’s difficult for Joe to understand LGBT folks who are also people of faith. Some of us have abandoned the churches we grew up in for welcoming denominations, some us still struggle in churches who condemn us and some have abandoned organized religion altogether, but remain people of faith. I have found Joe’s writing and choice of posts to be biased to the point of ridiculousness when it come to presenting religion. I have never seen him post a positive story about a religious institution in regards to LGBT folks (Note to Joe: If you read this please correct me if I am wrong). He cherry picks and reposts stories that support his own views as an atheist; as is his right, it’s his blog and he can do as he chooses. But that choice disqualifies him as a fair representative of a diverse LGBT community that includes many people of faith.

    I’ll say it again; I like Joe. I would have coffee or a meal with him anytime since I like having smart friends and I don’t expect them all to agree with me. But I would not invite him as Grand Marshal of my Pride event.

  • 2eo

    @Bob: There’s nothing wrong with treating institutions that are not only completely wrong, but inflict misery on countless people as hostile and unintelligent.

    The mormon church and christianity in general [all religions] are hostile, hateful and full of people who want us dead.

    Every person standing up for what is morally right gets a thumbs up from me.

    Get your god out of my society, it has no place anywhere but inside a church and inside a house, nowhere else. I’m glad we have had enough and are fighting back against religious genocide of us.

  • Brian

    Doesn’t Joe Jervis like to ban certain posters from his web site? If Joe is into banning others, he deserves to be banned himself.

  • litper

    @2eo I hope that’s gonna stard a new trend of bigot suicides! They see they can’t stop the progress so they have only one option left!

  • Bob

    @2eo: You’re just wrong. I don’t know how else to put it. The United Church of Christ (2 million members), the Evangelical Lutheran Church (8 million members) and the Episcopal Church (3 million members) all welcome LGBT folks to the full life of the Church including leadership and clergy. I do NOT have to choose between being Christian and being gay. I am aware that those who hate and denigrate LBGT people in the name of religion are on the news all the time. I don’t know why the media gives them a platform. But, they do not speak for “The Church”. There is no such thing as “The Church”. There are many types of Churches and many kinds of Christians who practice a diverse faith with diverse practices and diverse beliefs. I am just as Gay as you are and I am a Christian. The two sides of me are inseparable.

  • Bob

    @litper: This man left a family who will mourn for him and I find you calling for suicides disturbing and offensive. I know that some have said that about LGBT people, but responding in kind is a lousy way to advance a movement. We are better than that.

  • 2eo

    @litper: Agreed, every one of them that dies is a victory for humanity and the intellectual progression of our species. These people offer nothing but loathing and real life murder, [email protected], child pornography [prevalent among christian preachers, more than any other profession, disproportionately so], the only way they improve the world is by not living in it anymore.

    @Bob: So you think playing the “I am offended” card is going to carry any weight in the giving a damn environment, I appreciate you’ve retreated into playing the victim, because that’s all you have when informed people question religion and it’s sheer hatred in this world.

    christians attacked the IDAHO march in Tblisi yesterday, christians threw petrol bombs, rocks and stabbed dozens of people. This is what christianity is, the veneer and pretending they aren’t the same is not washing anymore.

    We are sick of religious tyranny decimating everything good and moral in our society, I’ve never met a moral religious man with any integrity, ever. Times are changing and the genocide they’ve committed against us has long worn out the niceness that they don’t deserve.

    The religious want us dead, they’re killing us by the thousand, for anyone reading the comments don’t buy into his playing the victim, he’s a perpetuator and apologist for those who kill us. How many more will they murder in cold blood?.

    Enough is enough.

  • LaTeesha

    As many of the commenters on here prove, Christians are weird and wacky. But, hey, nothing wrong with it. They just need to own it.

  • marc sfe

    @Bob: Sorry Bob, but not all of the churches belonging to those denominations are entirely welcoming. Some are granted, but the small UCC in my old hometown is going to leave the UCC as they don’t want any gays in their ministries.

  • vlarabee

    All, I just want to clarify a few things from my recent phone interview with Tony. First, the real essence of this story is about the conflict of loyalties that sometimes exist within our LGBTQ community in Utah. Too often we walk (or feel we have to walk) on eggshells because of our conservative home, and the conservatives lawmakers who hold out crumbs of equality that we so desperately work to acquire. Just as often, although less since the days of Prop 8, we air our public grievances with religious organizations (particularly the Mormon Church) who we have identified as our unrelenting oppressors.

    As a non-profit executive, my desired role is to bring balance to our support and advocacy work here in Utah – speaking so that our conservative neighbors can hear our voices while also speaking to and empowering our base – the great LGBTQ citizens of Utah (a very diverse group in and of itself). You see, many LGBTQ people here have Mormon roots and still love their church. There are just as many who have been so hurt by their personal circumstances growing up in the Mormon Church. Each have tremendous value to this organization and this community. Hence the need for balance. Pride is the one time a year when we seek to speak more to our own than anyone else. Joe My God is a talented writer, activist and leader of the pride movement. Hence our invitation. An invitation that was extended to Joe and David Testo – both men so admired and deserving of a Grand Marshal role.

    Second, I want to own my role in not having the strength to do the right thing and honor our invitation to Joe. I couldn’t see my way clear to avoid the conflict that was brewing and I couldn’t sugar coat things with Joe. If anything is to be take away from this episode in our history I want it to be the tremendous pressures we feel every day to hold our entire community in a place where their opinions and needs are addressed. My integrity may be in tact yet my relationship with Joe and with some others implicated because of my lack of strength is not. Lesson learned, by me at least.

    And, third. The board member mentioned in this piece is a very talented and passionate person. The board member is not Mormon. He/she is LGBT. That is a very important point. I do believe all of us involved in Utah Pride, especially our board members and staff, are doing the very best we can do – and yes we do make mistakes – lots of them. I’m sorry that this entire issue has taken on a life of its own. The greater story about Utah is all that has been accomplished in the face of these difficult dynamics.

    This decision was not influenced by Mormon Power. It was influenced by an ED that had no strength to sell Joe. For that I am very sorry – especially for our relationship with Joe – an incredible talent and inspiration to those using their voices to change the world.

  • marc sfe

    @Brian: Only those who are disruptive and call for violence. Joe serves a very useful purpose and reports what happens. He angers people because he quotes them, verbatim, and has the proof for what he writes. I fully support Joe in his efforts and what he does…calling people out on their bullshit and lies.

  • Dakotahgeo

    Damn!!! I TOLD Oh.My.God.Joe to wear his magic underwear or something like this would happen! Watch your head, OMGJoe! The angel Moron ate beans last night and is circling over your head!

  • Dakotahgeo

    @Dakotahgeo: Correction: Moroni… (but you get the idea!).

  • jeff4justice

    @Brian: So I am not the only one. Joe labels links relevant to the content he posts as SPAM. He apparently banned me for making a point, using reference links, and daring to disagree with him. I won’t feel sorry for him.

  • BayAreaHomo

    “The United Church of Christ (2 million members), the Evangelical Lutheran Church (8 million members) and the Episcopal Church (3 million members) all welcome LGBT folks to the full life of the Church”

    I’ll see your measly 13 million “exceptions to the rule” and raise you 1,000 million “mainstream Catholics” who belong to an organization that describe LGBTs as “objectively disordered individuals” who are to have no role in public life or their religious practice.

    And yes, that’s their “deeply held belief.” And just one major denomination that has that belief. Add up all the others (major Protestant denominations and the Eastern Orthodox Church) and your “tolerant denominations” represent less than 0.5% of all “believers.”

    Continue to delude yourself into believing that the tiny, fractional minority of Christian fringe denominations that reluctantly welcomed LGBTs to some degree represent a “mainstream.” The numbers tell a very different story, and the censorship and silencing of Jervis on this issue is a great example of religious power run amock again.

  • Dr. Janice Inguglaktu

    @Bob: I think you nailed it on the head. I think Joe Jervis does cherry pick articles that reinforce his hostility towards religion. Unfortunately, I think a lot of people get all their gay news from his blog and his selective editorial choices, whether intended or not, only serve to stir up fear and hatred of the religious. Just a look at the amount of anger and animosity towards the religious that is expressed in his comment threads is pretty saddening. While I get that a lot of gay people have been hurt by religious institutions, I see nothing positive in riling up this kind of hatred among his readers.

  • Bob

    @Dr. Janice Inguglaktu: I don’t know why I bother trying to say anything positive about religion in these threads. Why does the internet seem to only attract the fringes from both sides?

  • DarkZephyr

    I am always grateful to those Christians who do support us. There are also those non-Christian, non-Religious people who hate us.

  • 2eo

    @Bob: I’m more disappointed at the amount of apologists posting from the same IP address as you, I thought the MB backend was recently updated to stop this happening.

    Apologists are holding us back from equality, they represent everything that NOM and the GOP want, they think conceding to them will make us equal. It didn’t with slaves, it didn’t with segregation, it didn’t with women, they can not be reasoned with, they will never view us as equal.

    These apologists still view women as inferior and black people as nothing but slaves, mormons didn’t even recognise black people were human until VERY recently.

  • 2eo

    @BayAreaHomo: Indeed, also if I may point out that it is still only a minority of that 11 million tiny minority who are welcoming, they nearly to a man hate us and think we are lesser than they.

    orthodox CHRISTIANS attacked an IDAHO gay march in Tbilisi and threw petrol bombs, stabbed loads of marching, peaceful, moral people who wish to be considered human and they won’t even arrest the people responsible.

    Why is it that christian hatred is openly condoned, yet when we advocate fighting back peacefully we are considered “haters” and “stirring up violence” even though we’re none of those things.

    Mind you, given the standard intelligence of an apologist I can’t envision losing much sleep over what they think, considering the trouncing they get from informed people everywhere they choose to exist.

    @Bob: Religion is an insult to human dignity. With or without it you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion.

    @vlarabee: “… The board member mentioned in this piece is a very talented and passionate person…”

    @Vlarabee. That “young man” is no different than those cowardly Senators who threw us under the bus in the immigration bill. Arrogant, self-absorbed, whinny, sniveling, and most of all, an embarrassment to the LGBT community who have endured beatings, death, and rampant discrimination so that he could dishonor us with cowardice and petty powerplays. We are our own worst enemy and look for crumbs from people we should be confronting. Not attending and not donating and now actively hostile. Get a bunch of gays together and some queen will betray anyone and everyone for a drink with an umbrella in.

  • ngblog

    @vlarabee: You need not be guilt ridden over it.

  • EManhattan

    @the Christians who are offended by Joe – If you read JoeMyGod, he does not attack non-hateful Christians, and does sometimes feature specific, non-hateful Christians quite positively.

    Those of us who are not Christians have a hard time figuring you guys out – you’re all over the place. Some are extremely hateful, others are only ignorant and nasty, a few are really ok most of the time. You guys can’t seem to get it together and come up with a consistent religion. It is not OUR duty to make sense out of your different splinter groups – if you can’t manage to come to any agreement among yourselves after 2000 years, don’t blame us for thinking you’re all rather confused and superstitious people who have just made up stories to support your own prejudices. You then try to force everyone else to live by your made-up stories, claiming that they are facts.

    You all say you follow the same ugly ‘holy book’ (I have read it, much of it is appallingly wicked), and you all claim to be doing God’s work. So when Christians attack me in the name of Christianity, I, for one, will continue to attack those Christians and Christianity. Put your own house in order and rid yourselves (and us) of the evilness that emanates from your religion, and you will no longer be attacked by non-Christians. Or start a better, non-violent, non-hateful religion and leave all the Biblical nastiness behind.

    And stop blaming the victims of your religion for protesting against the horrible things that Christians do out of Christian beliefs. We do not force Christians to attack us, waving the bible as they do so.

  • 2eo

    @EManhattan: They won’t, they’ve been playing the victim card since Islam battered them back across Europe centuries ago. christianity tried to underhandedly get rid of us and the jews in the holocaust.

    Hitler of course being an ardent catholic, catholic priests condoned concentration camps and protected thousands of war criminals after the war.

    Their subterfuge isn’t working so well in the new age of instant information, their lies and religious hate is peeling away slowly and we are growing up as people and seeing the rotten core and the number one poison on the planet.

  • Jack E. Jett

    Unlike being gay…..Being Mormon is a CHOICE and a pretty insane one in my book.

    The fact that the Mormons have spend millions and millions of dollars to ANTI gay measures and someone is disinvited for fear of offending them………wow. Mormon’s offend me every single freaking day. Yet, I understand ultra conservative gay movements as I live in Texas where we seem to be moving backwards in the gay rights department as others move forward.

  • Jack E. Jett

    @Bob: JoeMyGod is one of the best gay blogs out there. It is clear that Joe Jervis is a brilliant man and writer. While I don’t agree with all he says any Pride event would be lucky to have him. I have always been jealous of his verbiage skills. Mine are far more blunt.

    Most of the gay Mormon’s I have met have had the hardest time coming out. The saddest stories of being disowned have come from this religion. While I am agnostic and see one religion is as nutty as the next….Mormonism holds a special place in the insane overlapping world of religion/cult. I feel sadness for anyone that is born into this mess as the only way to survive it is to get out of it totally in order to have a full and happy life. This has been my view of the Ex Mormon’s I have met over the years. Many are in constant conflict with yearning for parental acceptance that will never fully come.

    However to see someone CHOOSING their religion OVER a highly educated gay writer is sad for the entire State.

  • chuck

    @Dr. Janice Inguglaktu:

    Obviously, you do not bother to read the vile comments directed toward LGBT people on sites like NOM, AFA, FRC and even the Pope himself.

    God forbid that the victims of such hatred, bigotry and homophobia should speak up against those who have tormented, persecuted and murdered LGBT people throughout the ages and who still call for the rounding-up, imprisonment, deportation and criminalizing of homosexuality with execution as punishing for violating “God’s Natural Laws”.

    I’ll just bet that you even thought black people were totally out of line for protesting the way they were treated and for demanding civil equality.

    HFR of them!

  • chuck

    @Bob:

    Because there is very little positive that you can say about religion. The history of religion has been written in the blood of millions millions upon millions of innocent people, many of whom were not even members of your body-on-a-stick worshippers.

    The Holy wars. The persecution, torture and killing of other believers as well as the non-believers, the Spanish Inquisition, the burning of heretics and witches at the stake, etc., etc. Such a proud heritage and collection of traditions to celebrate and which must make you feel so proud to be a Christian.

    It is because of religion that DOMA exists.

    It is because of religion that same-sex marriage is only legal in only 12 states.

    It is because of religion that same-sex marriage is legal in only 11 countries.

    It is because of religion that Prop 8 passed.

    It is because of religion that many gay couples are denied the right to adopt children.

    It is because of religion that bi-national, same-sex couples, of which I am one, cannot obtain green cards for and sponsor our partners as heterosexuals are allowed to.

    It is because of religion that the protests against same-sex marriage are happening in France.

    It is because of religion that LGBT people are denied the right to hold gay pride marches in Russia and Poland.

    It is because of religion that so many of our LGBT brothers and sisters are being slaughtered, not only on the streets of America, but around the globe as well.

    These are just some of religion’s negative gifts to the LGBT community. I could go on and on, ad infinitum, but hopefully, you are getting my point. I have been on this planet for some 76+ years and most all of it has been spent fighting for my rights which religion has deemed me unworthy of and it is religion that is doing everything in it’s power to make sure that I remain a second-class citizen and one who will surely go straight to hell for my homosexuality which I was born with, not chosen, as you have chosen your religion.

    Now, as a gay Christian, which is a total misnomer that I will never understand, would you care to share with us just what positive gifts that religion has given to the LGBT community?

    Can’t think of any?

    It’s tough being a christian, ain’t it?

    Excuse me? Gay Pride is neither a Christian or Mormon event. It is totally secular and Joe has as much right to be in Utah as any other gay, tax-paying, American Citizen. If anyone is to ge offended here, it is Joe and the thousands of his LGBT brothers and sisters whose right to marry a partner of their own sex was stripped away by the millions of dollars that the Mormon and Catholic religions donated to make it happen.

    Wow. Real big of you. Real big. ”

    “But I would not invite him as Grand Marshal of my Pride event.”

    First of all, it is not exclusively yours or that of the Christians or any other religious sect or cult. Gay Pride is for all gay LGBT people of various faiths, various colors, various races, various sexual persuasions and all those who believe that LGBT people are also human beings who are deserving of being treated with respect, dignity and equality.

  • chuck

    @Brian:

    From whence did you get this information?

    Since it’s inception, Joe has always given his commentators very wide berth in expressing themselves whether complimentary or otherwise. His site is free of moderation, so long as one does not wish harm on others or make threats of violence against anyone. That should be the policy of any site worth it’s salt.

    It, indeed, Joe has been forced to ban certain individuals, it is because they have behaved like trolls whose only purpose for coming there was to stir the pot, make religious threats, roil people up, insult and demean the LGBT community and make trouble.

    And it is people like you, with religious documentation following your name, that have made my life and that of millions upon millions of LGBT people a living hell.

    Supporters of and apologists for religion have made it impossible for my partner and I to get married, either in the USA or the Philippines where he forced to remain because he cannot even get a visa to come visit me after ten years of being together. It is because our smarmy politicians in Washington DC are scared s***less to confront the religious right, that LGBT people were, once again, thrown under the bus with respect to Immigration Reform.

    Perhaps you would care to share with me (and others) just what it is that YOU personally have done to correct this outrageous situation, not to mention all of the other indignities and injustices religions has subjected LGBT people to?

    Joe “homo quotable” Jervis is a vile excuse for a “man” that is not actually progressive or liberal, is not for LGBT rights, and is a bully. His blog was a lot better when it was a sex blog and Joe would write about having raw/bareback sex while HIV+ and fisting men or being fisted.
