Here’s the the latest in our ongoing series of some of the crazy things the anti-gay marriage equality opponents are saying and doing around the world.
Keep The Gays Away from the Normal People
A fringe presidential candidate in Brazil, Levy Fidelix, went on a homophobic rant during a presidential debate. Towleroad.com reports:
“On the Sunday debate, he said that gay people “need psychological care” and are better kept “well away from” other people. He also suggested that Brazil’s population would be reduced by half if homosexuality were encouraged because “the excretory system” does not function as a means of reproduction.”
Apparently the other candidates aren’t particularly staunch supporters of the LGBT community, because none of them commented on his asinine remarks.
Men Were Born to Have Sex With Animals
Bryan Fischer’s back in our pages, commenting on a bestiality case where a man was convicted for having sex with a puppy:
“How long before an attorney defends a guy like this on grounds it’s his orientation, he was born this way?”
Yes, because sex between two consenting adults is exactly the same as forcing yourself upon an animal, right? Come on, Bryan, you can do better than that.
I’m Totally Not A Hater – I Just Think Gays Will Burn in Hell
Mat Staver protests that he doesn’t hate gay people:
“For me believing in something that is that obvious. I am considered by some groups to be a hater. But I hate no one. I hate no one, but I believe in God’s truth and I will not be silent in the face of intimidation.”
Of course, then he kinda blew the whole thing by saying same sex marriage “is an absolute lie from the very pit of Hell”
The Human Rights Campaign Is Like The Khmer Rouge
Robert Oscar Lopez is back in our pages today with a lovely comparison:
“The main item on the gay lobby’s agenda is patently insane. People don’t generally want to let lesbians milk sperm out of their testicles. People don’t usually like the idea of gay men gestating babies in their wombs and then taking them away. (And no, ‘visitation’ plans where these gamete donors get to see their progeny a few times a month are not a good arrangement; that stuff’s really creepy.) [snip] According to some historians of the so-called killing fields, in the 1970s, the Khmer Rouge hunted down people with eyeglasses and killed them en masse. They did this ostensibly because they worried that people who were too intelligent might challenge the draconian policies of the government. Fortunately, the Human Rights Campaign has no killing fields, so I and my contact lenses are safe for now. God grant that the awakening of reason come earlier rather than later.”
The Khmer Rouge – the poor man’s Nazis. And you know what they say – when you play to the Nazi card, you’ve lost the argument.
Gay Rights Activists Are Demonizing Us Christians
Anti-gay activist Peter LaBarbera is back too, with his own Nazi card:
“This demonization is just – it’s what’s been done to minorities [in] the past and like I said, it’s what the Nazis did to the Jews. We’re losing our freedoms.”
And if anyone knows what demonization is, it’s LaBarbera. Lord knows he’s done it to us enough times during his illustrious career.
Halla to the Haters at HRC
Looks like it’s full-court press time against the HRC and other gay organizations – The World Congress of Families issued a statement against them this week:
“The grossly misnamed Human Rights Campaign (HRC) issued a so-called ‘report’ titled “The Export of Hate” that is nothing but an intentionally misleading, hate-filled attack on individuals and organizations and Christians who oppose their agenda of forcing a redefinition of marriage in America, and throughout the world. The ‘report’ has enjoyed some attention among uncritical, leftist online media outlets. As is their custom, the HRC cites long-discredited and ideologically partisan sources such as the Southern Poverty Law Center to give apparent credibility to their hate-filled invective. They also intentionally misrepresent facts, twisting them beyond recognition to justify the charge that somehow supporting marriage as the union of one man and one woman around the world is wrong.”
This is over a report that exposed what these organizations have been doing around the world against the LGBT community. Guess they don’t like a little sunlight…
Gays Deserve to Die from AIDS
Gosh, we’ve got the whole anti-gay team together again today. Matt Barber wants you to know you deserve death for being gay:
“The wages of sin is death. I’m honored to say that I’m one of those ‘haters’ called by God to sound the alarm. While folks do send me positive and encouraging notes on a regular basis, I likewise receive a steady stream of hate mail – chiefly when I write (or speak) on the issues of marriage, God’s moral law and His natural order for human sexuality. While the positive correspondence is always heartening, it is, believe it or not, the nasty stuff – the uglier the better – that especially lifts my spirits. Christ’s promises are true: ‘Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake’ (Matthew 5:11). When God calls you to be an instrument of His truth, the biblical harmonies you play will often strike sour with those in rebellion against Him, sending them into blind rage and deep denial. This is a spiritual battle old as time itself. It is between good and evil. It is sublimely humbling to be used of God in this way”
Is it just me, or are these folks ramping up the rhetoric again because they know they are losing?
Gay Marriage Will Lead To Marrying Dogs & Adopting The Puppies
Mexican Catholic Bishop Jose Maria de la Torre Martin thinks that if his state legalizes marriage equality, we’ll see a rash of interspecies weddings:
“Bishop Jose Maria de la Torre Martin is very concerned that if his Mexican state of Aguascalientes were to approve its proposed same-sex marriage bill, next will come “allowing a man to marry a dog and they can inherit the puppies.”
Look, do we have to explain the whole “two people” vs. “a person and an animal” thing AGAIN???
