Anglican Bishop of Liverpool, James Jones wrote in the essay, Making Space for Truth and Grace, in A Fallible Church, Jones urges Anglicans to “acknowledge the authoritative biblical examples of love between two people of the same gender, most notably in the relationship of Jesus and his beloved [John] and David and Jonathan”.
The story of Jonathan and (later king) David in the Old Testament book of Samuel hints in a different direction, recounting that they “made a covenant, because he [David] loved him as his own soul”. The word for “covenant” is used elsewhere in the Bible (Proverbs 2:17; Malachi 2:14) for a marriage covenant.Later King Saul, Jonathan’s father, also offers David his daughter saying: “Thou shalt this day be my son-in-law a second time.” When Jonathan dies, David laments: “Thy love to me was wonderful, surpassing the love of women.”

Hot Desert Knights has reached an agreement with the Adult Industry Medical Healthcare Foundation that requires all HDK performers to undergo AIM-administered tests for HIV and sexually transmitted diseases including gonorrhea, syphilis, chlamydia and hepatitis A, B and C.
Effective immediately, the company will require AIM-certified HIV/STD documentation from every performer before he is allowed to participate in HDK projects.
Previously, HDK addressed the potential for disease transmission during unprotected sex by relying on a process called sero-sorting - pairing positive performers only with other positive performers and reportedly negative performers with other reportedly negative performers. The studio required each model to declare his status prior to filming but did not require documentation of recent HIV/STD testing, although HDK founder Bill Gardner has said counseling and a lengthy interview were part of the process in order to protect performers' health.
Among the factors influencing Gardner's decision is the popularity of bareback content, which has encouraged a number of new studios to enter the market. Many of the new studios are located in parts of the world where HIV/AIDS education, testing and treatment resources are limited, he said. In addition, AIM has agreed not to disclose any gay performer's HIV/AIDS status to anyone except the studios for which he works and other models with whom he will be performing.
The testing and information-sharing protocol AIM will use on the gay side of the adult industry is similar to one the foundation developed for straight studios: It requires performers to be tested every 30 days and manages the distribution of health alerts. The gay protocol differs from the straight protocol in that a positive result on an HIV/AIDS test will not prohibit a gay performer from participating in sero-sorted shoots. A positive diagnosis on the straight side of the industry delivers a death blow to a performer's career. Gardner and AIM founder Dr. Sharon Mitchell hope HDK's decision will inspire other gay studios to participate as well.

Nickolay Petrov whos real name is Edmon Vardanyan was booked on Jan 8th for attacking Grigori and Galina Komissarchuk who sustained skull fractures and other injuries in four separate attacks carried out by a hammer wielding Vardanyan.
Vardanyan told federal investigators he was offered $20,000 to kill the couple because they refused to pay a debt. He received between $800 and $1,000 for the job because "he didn't do the job correctly," according to the criminal complaint.
Chris Steele Jet Set Men producer who was flabbergasted when he heard the news about Vardanyan’s arrest says. "It's sad, really," Steele continued. "Here's another guy with everything going for him.... If he hadn't been in trouble, he could have made that much [money] in On Fire! We really wanted him in that movie."
He was a much better porn star than a hit man, classic case of “don’t give up your day job”
On Joshuah’s MySpace, he listed himself as Bi and the last entry he writes "It's true! I’m on Big Brother 9. I love this game and I hope I can bring a lot of entertainment for all of you. I am a very active and energetic guy that loves to go out and have a good time. I love to meet new people and make new friends. This will be a very interesting 3 1/2 months... I hope you have a great time watching!"
Neil the 29yo stud doesn’t have a last entry on him MySpace page but does have tons of photos of gay guys, gay bars and Perez Hilton licking him.
There are 7 women and 9 men (two are gay) so it looks like this year will be a “dating” kind of show add a bible thumper and some other Big Brother surprises and should interesting.

From Page Six - Marc Jacobs kicked off Fashion Week with a documentary on behind the scenes life of a designer - although many viewers would have likely been more interested in the secret tryst he's been having with a porn star. Jacobs has been quietly seeing adult film actor Erik Rhodes and whisking him away to secret
The new fling is likely the reason things have cooled again between Jacobs and former male escort Jason Preston, whom he's dated on and off since 2005. Sources said Jacobs' affair with Rhodes — who describes himself as "Addictive. Wild. Open" on his ManNet.com profile — began last year when the designer invited Rhodes to join him and Preston for a three-way. Jacobs allegedly continued the fling with Rhodes one on one after that. "Jason thought he and Marc were exclusive again," said our insider. "But Marc is sleeping with this porn star behind his back, and sneaking him to Paris for hot sex." Asked about Rhodes, Jacobs told Page Six through a spokesperson, "He's a really nice guy and we are just friends."

Larue has produced countless award winning films on both the straight and gay side of the industry throughout his career, and has been one of the strongest proponents for safe sex and the health of the models that he works with.
Earlier this year, his self-created studio became the largest gay adult company when it purchased both All Worlds Studio and the legendary, now defunct, Catalina line of films. The Channel One conglomerate has been vocal about the protection of the models in the industry, and after 20 years of directing and producing films, LaRue has become legendary for his success and his strong stance against unsafe sex.
He explains on the new safe sex promotional website, "I walked away from a lucrative contract with Vivid Video when they decided to go 'condom optional' so don’t ever say I don’t put my money where my mouth is!"
