Point: - Am I mistaken in assuming that Catholic gays conceive of themselves as a ghetto group which would care to worship apart from their straight fellow-members of the Mystical Body of Christ? Certainly the MCC seems to have experienced no difficulty in letting it be known that gays constitute at least a majority of its membership. Or do Houston gays differ from those on the West Coast? Counterpoint: - As I see it, all gays think of themselves as ghetto in this sense: they can be themselves fully only when with gays. There may be exception s to thi s, but the condemnation of straight society makes the gay retreat and seek a subcultural social life. Naturally, this carries over into the life of worship. The gay knows he is not accepted by straights at Mass. He feels almost that he is there under false pretenses. But when he can worship with others who are gay, his conscience is no longer up-tight. He feels he is at home. His worship becomes freer. And since worship does not involve only the act of worship, but the social contacts before and after, the gay prefers to worship with other gays because of the social contacts that are there for him. Should the day come when a straight parishwill accept gays openly and genuinely, the need for gays worshipping apart may no longer exist. Only time can tell that. Point: — Irresponsibility: this is what 1 have found to be characteristic of a notable number of the gays whom I know. And here, I fear, we are confronted with an old problem: Which came first, the hen or the egg? Are many gays irresponsible, simply because, as a persecuted minority, they have never been regarded as responsible solid citizens? Or is their irresponsibility a consequence of the disturbed state of their lives? If I have been injudicious in my choice of words, please forgive me. As a homosexual, I dearly love the members of the community and enjoy their company. I regard homosex ual ity as an addition to, rather than a subtraction from, the human condition: A dimension which enables us to see and enjoy elements of reality which are absent from the experience of straights. Still, I have, as it were, come so late to the life and am a priest. So perhaps I am more sensitive to the faults of my family and would like to see them eradicated. Counterpoint: - I don't presume to have all the answers. I can only give my opinions, based on observation and reading. Many times we are tempted to stereotype the gay. How can we say gays are irresponsible? There are gay doctors, lawyers, priests- It would not be fair to say that they are irresponsible. They would suffer in their profession if they were.. Among white and blue collar workers also, there can't be one answer. Each individual has to be judged on his own merits. But when we say irresponsible, in what are they irresponsible? That is very important. In some areas of life an individual (gay or straight) may be responsible and in other areas very irresponsible. The extent of his interest in that particular area might determine that. Point: — In closing I should like to include two quotations which you might like to use Counterpoint: - Thank you for your consideration in sending me quotes that you felt might be used . . . They were good, but I feel that they were a little too deep for general reading . . . They almost demanded study and that kills reader interest. CHAPARRAL BOOK MART FINEST LINE OF ADULT BOOKS AND MAGAZINES IN CORPUS MOVIE ARCADE 25* 413 Peoples St. Corpus Christi, Tex. GAYBOY opened by Anthony/ Vecera Soon to be one of the most fun places in town is the new Gayboy International Club in the location of the defunct Romulus Club. The plans of Joe Anthony and Tom Vecera for this large club are really exciting. Fashioned along the lines of the Playboy Clubs, the Gayboy International Club will be the first of its kind anywhere. European waiters in charming costumes, with small tails cunningly attached in the appropriate places, to be known as Gayboy Bucks, will add to the atmosphere of this most interesting club. Entertainment will be provided when the best is available. Some really interesting live entertainment is now being discussed which will be a pleasant surprise to the Gay Community. New lighting and furnishings also make the Gayboy International Club more exciting. The first club to publical- ly use such a name, the Gayboy International Club is exclusively for the Gay Community, and the hets will not be welcome, according to Mr. Anthony. The Gayboy International Club has a free smorgesbord buffet seven nights a week for members and guests. Professional bartenders serve anything the patrons wish mixed at 90< up, with beer at 50t£ and non-alcoholic beverages available. It's a hoot and you'll thoroughly enjoy i t! GLF HALTS METHODIST CONFERENCE Members of the Gay Liberation Front confronted a Method i st conference May 31 and brought the meeting to a standstill when they demanded to be heard. Delegates to the Southwest Texas United Methodist Annual Conference first overwhelmingly voted not to allow the group to speak. A second motion giving them the last five minutes of Monday night's program, passed by a narrow margin. As the first meeting of the four-day conference opened, members of the self- descr ibed homo sexual group passed out pink leaflets with a list of ten demands-including one calling on the church to make "sizeable reparations to gay people in the form of programs, facilities and money." In the first moments of business a bearded, longhaired young man who indet- ified himself as Jim Digger, 24, of Dallas, demanded that the conference give his group an audience. A shouting match developed between Digger and members of the audience. Including the Rev. Robert Tate, minister of theFirst Methodist Church in Austin, who was against allowing the group to speak. At one point as Tate spoke. Digger Shouted, "Pharisee." Another Gay Lib representative shouted, "Souls are the business of the church."
