    Singer Wynonna Judd is being bombarded with e-mails from conservative Christians, urging her to cancel her engagement to perform aboard a cruise ship devoted to lesbian vacationers. If Judd doesn’t cancel, some are saying she might face a boycott.

    The popular country star is scheduled to sing on a Caribbean cruise Jan. 29 through Feb. 2 sponsored by a company called Olivia, which, according to its web site, is “dedicated to providing high quality, safe vacations for lesbian travelers.”

    The Traditional Values Coalition is calling Judd’s engagement “disgraceful,” saying it “conflicts with her professed Christian faith” and suggests that Judd has been “misled by the mainstream media on the origins of same-sex attractions and the self-destructive results of such attractions.”


    I can't imagine being THAT up tight that another person's lifestyle would cause me such anguish that I would call for a boycott of the singer.

    The Christians are doing the lesbians a favor. There's no way the ship could carry enough alcohol for both Wynonna and the passengers.

    I suppose the lesbians got tired of Melissa Etheridge/k.d. lang/the Indigo Girls every year.

    You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to TheWakeUpBomb again.

    You have given out too much reputation in the past 24 hours. Try again later.

    I guess repping Twub was Last Call for me.

    You beat me to it. I was going to say that if they listen to crap like the stuff listed above, no, they don't deserve music. Just like people with 5 fiery car wrecks to their credit don't deserve licenses.

    Didn't Jesus minister to the sinners? These people remind me of the Pharisees who proclaimed how worthy they were, and how unworthy the sinners were.

    Um, weren't pharisees Jewish? We've been telling the world how worthy and chosen we are for millenia now.

    I hope there's a boatload of floss for all the rug-munching going on there.

    Lesbians got jipped, didn't they? I mean, gay men get Cher, Ricky Martin, Jennifer Lopez, Madonna and... Right Said Fred. They may not be any better musically, but they're so much more fabulous.

    I think the indifference towards fabulousness is what makes gay women gay, that and cunnilingus.

    Q: What's the difference between a women's track team and a tribe of pygmies?

    A: One is a group of cunning runts.


    That joke never gets old. :)

    What's the difference between a circus and a sorority house?

    A circus is a cunning array of stunts.

    Lemme tell you something, your life should be considered incomplete if you have never actually heard Phranc's homage to Martina Navratalova. It is simply the most amazingly awful song anyone has ever heard. Yet at the same time, so comical, that you'll find yourself listening to it again and again.

    Try your damnedest to find that song somewhere. It's so...something.

    I saw Phranc play seven or eight years ago (w/ Bikini Kill, Elliot Smith, and Team Dresch) in Seattle. She's is a pretty fun performer. What differentiates her from the other musicians mentioned on this thread is that she is definitely in on the joke.

    I met Phranc at a party way back when. She was pretty damn funny.

    Never heard her sing, though.

    A lesbian cruise ship needs musical entertainment? I think I've got an idea for my next screen play. Every generation needs its "Some Like It Hot."
