Gay scripture study...

I love tradition, so I thought if Pilgrim can do Gay Gospel Doctrine, I can do Gay Scripture Study. Today, this last day of the month, I will begin a new tradition by sharing scriptures I find particularly interesting. To help keep your interest during your scripture study, I have included a few illustrations that I found especially fitting.

(Okay, cut the eye rolls. REALLY! This is a blog by a gay guy written primarily for gay guys, right? What is more gay than guys looking at guys?

I mean even closeted gays are into beefcake...(unfortunately for them, all they typically can manage is a quick glance and a guilty conscience. (Please, Marky, don't confess to your bishop next Sunday that you read this post three times...I honestly believe the Man Upstairs won't hold it against you....))).

I hope, therefore, to provide you at the end of this difficult Monday a heartfelt spiritual lift that probably won't help much with Family Home Evening tonight, but will in the end be one heck of a fun read.

Alma 53:20 And they were all young men, and they were exceedingly valiant for courage, and also for strength and activity; but behold, this was not all—-they were men who were true at all times in whatsoever thing they were entrusted.

2 Nephi 2:18. Wherefore, he said unto Eve, yea, even that old serpent, who is the devil, who is the father of all lies, wherefore he said: Partake of the forbidden fruit, and ye shall not die, but ye shall be as God, knowing good and evil.

Matthew 26:49. And forthwith he came to Jesus, and said, Hail, master; and kissed him.

Jonah 2:10. And the Lord spake unto the fish, and it vomited out Jonah upon the dry land.

Song of Solomon 1:2. Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth: for thy love is better than wine.

Moses 4:13. And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they had been naked. And they sewed fig-leaves together and made themselves aprons.

Mark 6: 22. And when the daughter of the said Herodias came in, and danced, and pleased Herod and them that sat with him, the king said unto the damsel, Ask of me whatsoever thou wilt, and I will give it thee.

D&C 107:23. The twelve traveling councilors are called to be the Twelve Apostles, or special witnesses of the name of Christ in all the world—thus differing from other officers in the church in the duties of their calling.

2 Nephi 2:19. And after Adam and Eve had partaken of the forbidden fruit they were driven out of the garden of Eden, to till the earth.

1 Peter 5:14. Greet ye one another with a kiss of charity. Peace be with you all that are in Christ Jesus. Amen.

To me there is nothing more beautiful than beautiful men, especially when they are illustrating the scriptures. Have a nice day!


  1. THANK YOU CLIVE, for going where no man has gone before. I laughed out loud! Touche! Brilliant! And people said you had no sense of humor ...

  2. Don't you just love the 12 apostles. I think I'm going to frame it for the bedroom. (oops!) I meant to say the home teacher room. ;-)

  3. Oh---My---God!

    Now that's scripture studying! Thanks to you and Invictus I feel so inspired to study the scriptures even more (even if that means reading your blogs--that's probably all I can handle for now!) Where do you find all these pictures? Gotta love the Quorum of the 12...I just keep thinking what would the church be like if...
