HOUSTON I'm hoping someone will save his quarter and play with me instead. Tongue in Cheek Only 7? I thought there were more By Peter Harrison c 1982 Stonewall Features Syndicate If you remember the Bible, and have always wondered what those foolish virgins did with the oil for their lamps, here's a scoop: it's been rediscovered in Jerry Falwell's smile. Rev. Jerry has been hot on the trail of sinners lately, you and I among them. Of course, that's nothing new. I've had so much sulphur and brimstone rained down on my head over the years that I could strike fire if rubbed against a scratchy surface. Ordinarily, I'd just let ol' Jer carry on and forget him. But he jes' keeps a'comin' across the teevee, callin' down the wrath of God on the likes of you and me, and a'gettin' the likes of Hon. JesseHelms to write up a passel of legislatin' about how us folks who oughtn't to speak our names should live. Shoot! I thought Rev. Jer and Hon. Jess and I had an agreement. I planned on stayin' out of the pulpit, as long as Jerry stayed out of the Statehouse. Now all bets are off. I don't have no big-time teevee show behind me, but you folks are goin' to have to show your faith by imaginin' the crepe de chine choir robe that graces my manly shoulders, the hint of blue in my silver hair, the swaying figures of the Heavenly Body Choir behind me (hallelujah!) hummin' the anthem as I preach. (My Man! Strangers in the Night1! "Brothers and sisters, lovers and possibilities. I've come before you this evening, or very nearly. Be that as it may, let me bring to your attention the Seven Deadly Sins. Already, I see by your smiles that you are relieved. You thought there were more, didn't you? Well, you must remember that there are sins and there are specializations. "Let us not cast the first stones. But once the stones are tossed, let's get our rocks off at the oppostion. Who are the opposition? Be not deceived. Even though the speech and delivery of Rev. Ernest may sound like that of Truman Capote, he is not of this flock. It may be the very fact that he has not been flocked in years that makes him uncharitable. "Let us rather look at God's eternal scoreboard, the Seven Deadly Sins. Let's take them one by one and see who's behind. Your dirty minds lead us from that unfortunate pun to the first sin: Lust. Ah, brothers and sisters, hunks and numbers, here we take a one-nothing lead. There is no doubt that we are lustful and horny, like unto that great sinner, Jimmy Carter. But how about Anger. No, my sinning siblings, that is not our fault. Anger maketh an ugly face, and who needs it? Rev. Jer is more likely to express that emotion when talking about us or the women who want to control their own lives. Envy? Ah, we all envy the better-looking, the smartly-clothed. But what of our opponents? Is there no envy, one for the other, of higher ratings on the teevee? Verily, this sin is a draw. At the end of the celestial third, the score is one-and-one half sins each. Pride is the next sin, and those of us who celebrate Gay Pride are guilty of it. But what of the pride of numbers of watchers, of size of the place of worship? Again, Sin Number Four brings a draw. Sloth is a trespass none of us can afford in the era of Reaganom- ics. This is a strikeout for both sides. Covetousness confuses some of you, due to the text of the biblical passage, "thou shall not covet thy neighbor's ass." This is a snare and a delusion, a sin falling under "lust." Covetousness has more to do with an evangelist who builds a glass temple, then cries out for money to buy Windex. Since every evangelist begs for money on each broadcast over a station that costs millions, score one for the oppostion. At the bottom ofthe sixth, the score stands evangelists 3, gays 2. Gluttony is the last sin, and I'm afraid the evangelists take us on that one, too. Rev. Jerry looks as if he's pretty big on the biscuits-and-gravy circuit, and the PTL Club has a pair of singers that have to pay excess weight charges on the airlines before they show their luggage. Compare this with the lineup on Polk Street or Third Avenue. Undoubtedly, the winners are the gays, with a two-sin lead over their opponents. "Be sure to join us next week when the Range Grazers Association of Montana sings "For We Like Sheep," from Handel's work, and my sermon is from the text, "Beware of false prophets."
