Quote# 65033

Nearly four years ago in Brooklyn's Brownsville area, Steven Pomie nearly beat Dwan Prince (pictured) to death for coming on to him. Pomie attacked Prince once, then came back for a second round with a cohort, and returned for a third assault only to be stopped by witnesses. By that point, Prince was unconscious. So how come Prince is now lobbying for a light sentence of his attacker? It might have something to do with Prince blaming himself for the anti-gay attack.

Prince was a witness at the first trial, though he has no memory of the assault. His testimony illustrated the devastating results of the attack. His more sympathetic posture toward Pomie could sway a jury. While the assault left Prince partially paralyzed, he blamed himself.

“I was at blame so it is my to my strongest degree that you get out as soon as possible,” Prince wrote.

“Steve you changed me!” Prince wrote. “So hopefully when you get out we can hang out. You know me. I know you. I help you calm that angry machine down. And allow you to know I am not gay but a lover, and you can find me a female I can love and can love me.”

Prince has been attending a Bible study class at the Riverside Church, a liberal congregation, but he said he has not discussed his changed sexual orientation there.

“I am looking to change my life these days,” Prince, who is HIV-positive, told Gay City News. “I am looking for a female who I can marry and have my sperm washed and have children… With me going to church, I feel myself that I must try to live by the Bible, I must try to live by God’s law.”

The church turned him away. If anything he is playing straight to get his mother and self some help from those "loving" Christians.

Either this is a made up pile of crap or these two guys are really defective.

I am looking for a female who I can marry and have my sperm washed and have children…

Why, so you can spend the rest of your life with a woman you don't love and possibly pass the disease on to her?

Both of these guys need help.

@ aaa --

Dude, homophobes already walk away from assassinating unarmed gay men and, in most of the country, can usually count on jury nullification. If they know we're armed, that's just one more excuse the defense can hand to the jurors -- because if we're armed, then we must have assaulted/threatened/attempted to rape those poor helpless straight men. The only people who can carry safely are straight white Christians; anyone else carries and the SWCs and police see that as an order to kill on sight.

Hahaha!

You think sperm washing kills HIV but not sperm? Your hilarious!

Lies, outright lies. You should be ashamed of yourself, trying to justify and attack like this, trying to use it for your own agenda. The real story is nothing like you said, the poor man didn't try to blame himself, he tried to give a statement against, but was unable to do so himself because of how badly damaged he was. His mother had to read it for him. There was no self blame, no wanting to turn straight and wash sperm.
Lying is a sin, and the amount of lies in your statement guarantee your stay in hell, according to your religion.

Just what we need, another fucktard wanting to screw-up some poor innocent kid.

I agree with T Money's post on the link:

poor guy. cant help but feel sorry for him. he obviously has serious brain damage. but i dont think its the churches doing. isnt it a LIBERAL chucrch?

there is more to the story than this. poor guy. he needs serious help...


The Riverside Church "...reaffirms the equality of all God’s children and further recognizes that all holy unions between committed, loving adults are of equal value in God’s sight. Therefore, the Riverside community, for church purposes, will recognize all such couples as married…"

The guy may well have brain damage but goes to a liberal church that accepts gay marriage. Not very fundie IMHO. I tend to the view that real fundies are those (like Creationists, some Catholics and the 'Trail of Blood' Baptists) who knowingly lie for Christ because they believe the end justifies the means.

And the cynical mega-church evangelicals of course... although how I'd separate televangelists tithing the poor in the trailer park to pay for their new beamer from medieval Bishops shafting the peasants to build York Minster or Chartres Cathedral I don't know.

Hello?! YOU'RE GONNA KILL THE GIRL! She won't WASH your sperm! She'll. Get. AIDS.

Sounds like one is a vicious thug and the other has some serious psychological issues. Not a good example to base any general conclusions on.

I hate to suggest it, Steven, but your story sounds just a bit garbled to me; garbles to the point of being senseless.

8/31/2009 1:50:42 PM



...How hard did this man have to be beaten to be beaten STRAIGHT?


P.S. Gay City News? Does this exist? The bullshit factor seems strong with this one.

8/31/2009 2:57:39 PM



It's funny that he wants his sperm washed, whatever it means, instead of a cure or a vaccine for a problem that affects both homosexual and heterosexual people. Talking about vultures.

So, which Prince is the "real" one? The gay male beaten so badly that his traumatic gay injury changed his personality, or the Prince who is now "not gay"? If a person has a soul, has Prince's soul already moved on, or has it been stolen by this new Prince? I can only hope the prosecutor puts on a doctor to explain Prince's personality changes in biological terms, so that Pomie can continue to rot in jail. Or alternatively, beat the living crap out of him one time. Maybe the personality change in Pomie caused by brain injury might make for a more useful human being.

You have to wonder if this poor bastard (having been beaten to the point of madness and memory loss, to say nothing of having AIDS) doesn't hate himself and the God he's now terrified of not worshipping to the point of letting some girl try and fail to avoid getting it...

Please tell me Prince's family scheduled an appointment with a neurologist, that sort of personality shift after damage like that is not a good sign.

I've heard the expression "slapping someone silly". That must have been what Pomie did to Prince.
