If you don't like him, don't go to his concerts. I was recommending it to people who like his music. I know there are several Moby fans on VB
As to the whole Moby-wants-gay-kids thing, he responded to that on his website. Here's the relevant entry:
ok, normally i don't respond to the reactionary slander that some people spew on moby.com, but the 'moby wants to turn his child gay' is just too tempting and i have to respond.
first off: i don't have any children.
secondly: if i had children i would want them to be happy, regardless of their sexual orientation.
if they were heterosexual i'd want them to be happy and straight. if they were gay i'd want them to be happy and gay.
i would want my children to be proud of who they were regardless of their orientation and how socially acceptable it might or might not be.
parents should love and support their children, case closed. how much needless hurt and pain has been created by parents and family members not accepting a child's sexual orientation? far too much.
and i don't want to get into the o.t theological debate about homosexuality. many right-wing christians base their homophobia on the 'the old testament forbids homosexuality.'
yes, in leviticus.
where it's also stated that it's ok to make slaves from neighboring countries, it's ok to kill people who make offerings to foreign deities, and that a man should be put to death for cutting the corners of his hair.
so to my erstwhile right-wing christian readers: when reading the old testament and the pentateuch it's probably a good idea to incorporate a degree of historical context in your hermeneutic exploration of o.t theology.
Honestly, people...Yes, Moby's a bad guy because he wants well adjusted children. But, then, i'm also a bloody lefty, so what do I know.
