The Voice of Evil

15 Jul

You know, I have found in my life that oftentimes the most virulently hateful homophobes – the ones who are downright obsessed by the topic and bring it up day in and day out – are, in fact, quite unsure of their own sexuality. You know, the people who continually harp about how the Bible says that being gay is an abomination – just like eating shellfish – and quote obscure scripture passages, talk about how the gays are trying to recruit young people and destroy institutions like marriage.

Michele Bachmann’s husband, Marcus, was a topic of conversation on yesterday’s Shredd & Ragan show, and they played the audio from the video shown below.  The topic being discussed is Marcus Bachmann’s downright evil and psychologically damaging “clinic” that he ran to try and cure gay people of being attracted to people of the same sex.

Yes, he just likened teenage kids who are confused and possibly homosexual to “barbarians”.  It’s not hard enough being a teen, or learning who you are in this world, with a body raging with hormones and confusion – you need some self-righteous bastard who’s in deep, deep denial to “cure” you of something that isn’t a disease.

I’m not saying, I’m just saying.

    It’s not just an observation, it’s been scientifically demonstrated. Perhaps the Hanks of the world are better off not clicking this link.

    “Only the homophobic men showed an increase in penile erection to male homosexual stimuli.”

    Brilliant.

    Check out John Stewart’s Field of Dongs for another perspective.

    This isn’t new news although that doesn’t make it any less smarmy. There has been a host of Republican politicians who have been “outed” after denying gay rights legislation for years. There’s actually a guy that does the outing on his blog, can’t remember his name but Randi Rhodes has him on once in awhile. It was much more prevalent during the past administration.

    You gotta think that ANYONE who is interested in the sex others enjoy is effing weird.
