The Awesome Christian Book About Homosexuality From Anne Heche’s Mom Nancy

The Complete Christian Guide to Understanding Homosexuality: A Biblical and Compassionate Response to Same-Sex Attraction is the new 500-page tome from Joe Dallas and Nancy Heche, who happens to be the mother of former lesbian actress Anne Heche. “[T]here is some serious ugliness contained within these pages,” writes Patrick Fitzgerald. But why does Nancy have such a special interest in editing such a book?

“My interest in homosexuality can be traced to my 25-year marriage to a man who, unbeknownst to me, was living a secret second life as a homosexual,” she writes in an introductory note. “It was his AIDS diagnosis (and eventual death) that finally brought our the truth. Years later, I would be dealing with this issue again from a more public perspective as my daughter, actress Anne Heche, embarked on a well publicized lesbian affair [with Ellen Degeneres]. I have recounted these experiences more fully in my book The Truth Comes Out.”

I can’t wait to pick this one up!

    Anne Heche isn’t an actress anymore?!?!

    Jesus Christ, Mama Heche. Two women living together in a committed relationship for three years is not an “affair”.

    Looks like the nut doesn’t fall far from the tree.

    Bonus: Her secretly-gay husband? Hellfire-and-brimstone baptist minister, natch.

    If I start to care about what any Xtian thinks about me ever, in this life? You have my permission to kill me. What is it about toxic straight people picking through your life to dominate and steal their unearned privileges from you gay xtians that is so hard to grasp? I don’t get it, but then I don’t have to understand crazy, I just have to deal with it. Most likely by flushing it down the toilet, like this book, for instance.

    Something tells me Ellen & Portia won’t be buying this book !

    I am soooo sick of christians!

  • Reason

    Joe Dallas writes the same book over and over again. He is completely intellectually bankrupt. His stated approach is that he uses logic and science to “prove” his Christian position on the gays, but the truth is that his arguments fail every logical and scientific standard.

    How My Daughter Discovered Gold While Muff Diving.

  • rrr

    Nancy’s husband started molesting his daughter Anne while she was still in diapers, at which time he gave Anne herpes. He fucked guys as well but he wasn’t a gay man. He was a criminal who fucked anything.

    @Dave: I assume she’s referring to it as an affair in the sense that Anne had “an affair with lesbianism.” As far as I’m aware, Ellen is the only woman Heche has ever seriously been with. All her other marriages and domestic partners were men. In her interview with Craig Ferguson she is pretty adamant about no longer being gay/interested in women ever again.

    hahaha pseudo-homosexuals having compassion for homosexuals,sweetheart,my darling, it is us, the ones that have compassion for the putrid physical and psychological conditions, that you the sexually inverted couples have to experience in order to get a bit of homosexuality and turn it into a pretty corrupted mess,do i need to remind you that you don’t even have the same freaking organs down there,gross eh? THIS IS THE WAY I DEAL WITH HOMOPHOBES!!!

  • Jeff

    Amazing that people blast folks who write a book and they don’t even read the book nor do they know the people who wrote the book. It is evident that most gay-identified people are so into their little worlds that they never, let me say it again, never take the time to really get to know someone that disagrees with them. I am so tired of the gay and lesbian whinning I hear and see all over the place.

    It’s ok if you are sick of us Christians. We still love you despite your wicked lifestyle…
