Transcript a military advantage over their neighbors. Anti- horn asexual i sm became a patriotic attitude connected with the territorial ambitions of the Jewish kings. It become an obcession of the Jews and permeated every aspect of their culture. It was carried into Christianity by Saul of Tarsus (St. Paul), who spews forth anti-homosexual venom in the "Epistles of Paul", more than half of the New Testament'*. There is an anti-homosexual taboo built into Christianity, but it lacks the intense patriotic fevor of the Jewish taboo. Gentile scientists seem to overcome their subconscious hate, but even Jewish athiests have such firmlyrooted anti- homosexual obcession s in their cultural heritage that it dominates their mental processes to the extent that it dominates their mental processes to the extent that the y cannot view homosexuality rationally. Hopefully, American cultural inhibitions against mass extermination will preclude a restaging of the last days of Be I sen and Dachau. More likely, the neo-eugen- icists will attempt genocide by murdering homosexuals while they are still fetuses — as they have already iirt- p.ied. Either way, the genocide of Gays will be disastrous for the world. The ecology probably requires a certain percentage of Gays for ecological balance- In addition, a high percentage of artists, composers and literary figures ore Gay. Gays such as Shake- spear, DaVici, Michaelangelo and Tchailcowski have brought beauty into an ugly het world. - EDITORIAL - YMCA & YWCA: BAH! The Young Men's Christian Association and the Young Women's Christian Association in Houston do not turn out to be as Christian as their legal names imply, nor as Christian is defined generally. The Downtown YMCA and YWCA both discriminated against the American Association of Christian Crusaders fAARC) and its Church of Montrose by cancelling the Church's reserved space on Sunday the 23rd of May, 1971. Both places had accepted the Church's reservation of space to use for church services, then reneged at the last moment on their agreements. This shabby treatment of the Church of Montrose and its pastor, resulting in financial loos and embarrassment, is not to be casually excused. These so-called "Christian" organisations violated their agreements tor the sole reason that the Church of Montrose serves primorilly a homophile community. Ap- parantly these "Christian" associations are not prepared to follow the lead of their purported Master and extend the hand of Christian brotherhood to such as we. A sad commentary on the basic principles of the YMCA and the YWCA. And rather silly considering the universal reputation of both institutions! The Gay citizen no longer has to tolerate the malicious opinions of the hets of this world. Those days are long and mercifully dead. As for the YMCA and YWCA we would remind our readers and friends that both derive part of their financial support from the United Fund. Even allowing for the extortion techiniques used by the United Fund to receive "Donations" from salaried employees here, we would urge the homophile community to say NO' to any further donations to them. Instead, direct your donations to the Church of Montrose. If you wish to Support a Christian organisation, then support one whichhas our genuine interest ot heart. letters to the editor Don Jackson 1822 W. 4th St. Los Angeles, Calif 90057 Editor, I wish you would quit using the word straight as the opposite of Gay. Straight means right, correct usual, ordinary,moral truth, fairness, honesty accurate, upright. reliable, and candid. Its antonyms are tricky, dishonest, crooked, swindler, abnormal, confused, devious dissolute, unnatural, and vicious. (Funk andWaggneH's Dictionary). When straight is used as the antonm of Gay, you imply that Gay is unnatural, and abnormal. The continued use of the word straight has an undesirable subconscious psychological effect on the readers and militates against pride, self- esteem, etc, and causes Gays —to think of themselves in a negative manner. I suggest that the non- prejudical word "Het" be used instead of straight. You will note that most of the underground press has already switched to the new usage. I AM NOT ABNORMAL P.S- I enclose a submission which i s also furni shed to Liberation News Service and out of state Gay publications. Dear / Am Not Abnormal, We think your idea is a good one, ana* in this edition of The NUNTIUS we have used the word "het" in several instances, along with the word* "straight" to describe a person of heterosexual persuasion. The word "straight" has taken on many more meanings in current English usage over the past few years and the dictionary definitions are no longer final. This is typical of any living, vital language; the dictionaries will catch up later.) Editor Dear Phil, Houston's Gay scene has been most fortunate to have three first class quality clubs. Can you name any other city in America which has three? The old Palace Club was first, the Romulus, then the Phoenix fire bird rose out of the ashes to penthouse level and became the new Palace, and then came that cute Tattooed Lady- The Palace Club was the most beautiful Gay spot in America, even if it did look like some femme fetale screen star's kosher bedroom. As usual, the Gay crowd ignored quality, most staying away claiming the Palace as being "too" elegant. If a city has 20 and more gay bars, why shouldn't 2 or 3 of them be fine places? If one is going out to gay places, why be forced to limit one's self only fo dirty, uncomfortable grubby ugly places. Some kid themselves that they don't feel comfortable in a fine place. Others have a mistaken opinion that fine places are nelly. What is nelly about the Houston Country Club, the River Oaks Country Club, the Houston Club or the Bayou Club? These places are all fine "The Nuntius" contacted Miss Anne Homack, Assistant Director of the Houston Public Library, concerning the installation and use of a two- way mirror by the Houston Police Depot tment in the men's rest room at the Library. Miss Homack was queried concern- D^jl |t F '"9 **ie *n'rror ana sne related that its installation had been mode at the request of the Houston Police Department. "... she didn't re- ,t___fiyu member just how many years ago. I ClI\ "Because of numerous complaints made by patrons of the Library concerning "certain actions" that were transpiring in the Library's facility. When asked if the mirror had been a determining factor in reducing the number of complaints, the Assistant Director stated that, "Yes, it hod been o determinant in curtailing these actions" and that such unpleasant activities had calmed down. She went on to say that recently the staff of the Library had received very few complaints from their patrons and that "... spells of complaints came in cycles."
