Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Last month, we cruised the Highway to Hell with Pat Robertson -- good times, good times. You remember, right? K, then. Anyway, mentioned in that 700 Club report was James Stabile, "a 19-year-old homosexual who'd come by to drink and party" on Cedar Springs and wound up, like, finding God or something during Heartland Ministries' so-called "purity siege"? Turns out, yeah, not s'much, reports the Dallas Voice today. Best part: Stabile's father Joseph provided the real story -- and "Joseph Stabile is pastor of Cochran Chapel United Methodist Church, the oldest church in Dallas." Shall we revisit? We shall, we shall. --Robert Wilonsky

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
