|Introduction||DON CHARLES HAMPTON is a GUERRILLA CHRISTIAN, a Gay man who dares to accept JESUS CHRIST as his Lord and Savior and is willing to FIGHT for his beliefs. He believes in the GOSPEL, despite how it's been RADICALLY DISTORTED by both the religious Left and the Religious Right. His two most important blogs, CHRIST, THE GAY MARTYR and IGNORANCE IS PLENTIFUL are devoted to correcting these distortions. His other blog, THE POP CULTURE CANTINA, reflects his ongoing fascination with vintage music, literature and art. His CREDENTIALS (which he's damn proud of): Former writer for GOLDMINE, DISCOVERIES and COOL AND STRANGE MUSIC! Magazines, contributor to the SPECTROPOP, OLDIES CONNECTION, BOTH SIDES NOW, JEFF BARRY and CHRISTIAN LGBT RIGHTS websites, and contributor to the books BROTHER TO BROTHER(RedBone Press, 2007), HERE TO DARE(Galiens Press, 2002), THE ROAD BEFORE US(Galiens Press, 2001), BUBBLEGUM MUSIC IS THE NAKED TRUTH(Feral House, 2001) and MAMBO DIABLO: MY JOURNEY WITH TITO PUENTE (uncredited contribution, AuthorHouse, 2010).|

You moved the pot before the coffee stopped brewing. Do you smell the mountains or the burro?
Neither one. Stuffed Animal smells TEEN SPIRIT! And he doesn't drink coffee, BTW.
