    actors want to work.
    there is still a terrible stigma attached to being homosexual.
    actors who are out do not work as leading men.
    I do not approve of people living in the closet but actors want to work and they will not work if they are open about their sexuality..
    Now that Chamberlian is out he is playing gay roles- that is so typically Hollywood.
    One need not be gay to play a gay character just as one need not be heterosexual to play a heterosexual character!

    It might not be the homophobia that’s kept him from getting more roles. It could be the awful plastic surgery which has left him looking like somebody’s Asian grandmother.

    It’s cool to be gay now.
    Look at Doogie Howser and Clay Aiken and Ryan Seacrest and Jake Gyllenhaal for example.
    Four fiercely homosexual lads making a great living.

    Gay-bashing? Gay-hating? No !!!
    The following is just to let them know what is coming to them: Richard Chamberlain, Martin Rabbett, Clay, Ryan, Jake, Elton John, ellen, Portia, etc. will all be together in a very un-cool place, (if you get my drift), and all can then have a gay old time for eternity.
    This is per Bible, Romans, Chapt 1. Are you heathens calling Christ a gay-basher (or) a teller of truth. Your answer will determine where YOU are going.

    Jonesie, Christ didn’t say anything about homosexuality – that bit is separate in the Bible. And I trust you live by Leviticus EXACTLY – slavery, selling your daughters at market, killing unbelievers, death/ damnation for the various sins of eating shellfish, wearing mixed fibre cloth, touching leather, growing 2 diff crops together…..ooh the list goes on and on. You’re not even allowed to approach the altar of god if you have an eye defect, which I guess puts all the glasses and contact lens wearers out in the cold. ‘Cos you can’t pick and choose which you follow – Argue that it’s the literal word of God to be followed exactly and you’ll most likely end up in prison.

    “We hate Reta” is so dumb they’ve pressed the submit link three times! I think that speaks volumes about their level of intelligence. And I use the word advisedly. I wouldn’t worry too much Reta.
    5.52. Hilarious! Asian grandmother. Brilliant! Richard Chamberlain should come over to the UK and appear in xmas panto. Perfect as the Widow Twanky!

    Almighty God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah – everyone knows this. S & G were totally inhabited by faggots. God gave a final warning to them before they were destroyed. They did not give heed and repent and are now in hell. It is exactly the same with any other sins of rebellion (e.g. theft, adultery, cursing, idol worship, etc). Unless one repents from these (same as faggots must) they too will end up in hell. God the Father sent His only Son to die on the cross so that ALL sins may be forgiven. Doesn’t anyone read the Bible, or do faggots and lesbians just get mad when told the truth.

    “totally inhabited by faggots” Totally?? Gee, did they discover the secret of male pregnancy? I thought that was just a bad Scwharznegger movie. S&G. Ha ha! You make it sound like a chain store.
    No most people don’t read the bible – you know, like the majority of the world’s population who aren’t christian, other religions, no religions, can’t read, etc.
    I can never understand , unless it’s a drunken Friday night wind up of course, why people who are so puritan and extreme in their religious views are doing on these sites that deal with lovely filth and smut. I think it gives them a secret kick. We know where you’re coming from ;-). Has no one got any dirt on Mr Chamberlain? He must have done something!

    If this is cool now, guess what’ll be cool in 20 years. I’m too afraid to think about it.

    Hey, these two guys look great, and it ain’t plastic surgery. You want to see a masterpiece of plastic surgery? Check out Dennis Hopper. Now, that’s something.

    Personally, even though I don’t think it is morally right to be gay, it is none of my business what two consenting adults do. That is between THEM and God, not me. And I have always adored and loved gorgeous Richard Chamberlain ever since Shogun and of course, The Thorn Birds! The MAN, gay or not, is a magnificent actor. And anyone who has ever seen The Thorn Birds knows darn good and well he can “play straight” quite effectively.

    Get real and accept other people for what they are, not the same as you. Some of these comments about these talented entertainers are needlessly low class.

    I have loved Richard Chamberlain since Dr Kildare days, I think I read somehere that he said if he told everyone about his private life it would’nt be private anymore.

    Having seen a photo of Martin and Richard together and as a woman for me a waste of two good looking men. But thats just me still love ya Richard.

    Yea, Christ didn’t say anything about gays, and he didn’t say anything about how to organize a church, how much to give, what was OK to eat…………he left that all to his disciples after telling them that whatever they bound on earth would be bound in heaven. So you guys find another (false) tune. This one doesn’t ride.

    And, homosexuality is most definitely forbidden in the old and new testament regardless of the PC crowd would like to conveniently think.

    Love him or hate him, this guy is a loudmouth who doesn’t hesitate to tell it like he sees it- but there’s one thing he NEVER talks about: his prostate problem. Long story short: he LEAKS! He likes to project an image of macho virility, but under his custom made suits are custom made “diapers.” He’s VERY self-conscious and has absorbent but undetectable “panty liners” sewn into all his underwear, to avoid wet spots. Thanks to his arrogant behavior, he has more than a few enemies and he’s terrified his secret will be exposed and he’ll be forever ridiculed!
