I am a great fan of Oscar Wilde's plays. I especially love "The Importance of Being Ernest" and "Lady Windermere's Fan"

He obviously wasn't a 'homosexual' as he had loved several women and eventually married one. More accurately, he was bisexual, but repented of his sexual sins and converted to the Holy Catholic Church on his deathbed.

That's awful that he felt a need to repent for fear of going to hell. Its sad that he couldn't be whatever and whoever he wanted without all the labels.

Great mind, it's to bad that his sexual preface led to his demise.

An unfair end. I just wish somehow God himself would show up and scold all the bigots!
