Transgender People Are Like Castrated Horses
Right-wing ass Pat Robertson was up to his usual tricks yesterday, this time totally putting his foot in it about transgender people.
The Advocate reports:
The antigay televangelist compared a transgender person to his “big and beautiful” stallion that had been castrated. “Now, we talk about transgender. I have a former stallion who is now a gelding, because stallions get very aggressive,” Robertson said on a 700 Club segment Tuesday. “But he wasn’t trying to be a girl. We just made him into a less aggressive male… It’s a tiny fringe, but they seem to have control of the levers of power in the media and especially in Hollywood,” he said. “But it’s insane. I just cannot believe that the normal people in America, the people who want to just live their lives can’t be allowed to do it without having this stuff imposed on them constantly.”
Not sure what the “normal people” are trying to do here that’s being infringed upon – hate on LGBT folks?
We’d Rather Die Than Live in a Gay Friendly World
The Family Leader’s website thinks things have gotten so bad with gay rights that it would be better to die than live in such a world.
“All across the nation, Christians are being targeted by homosexual activists who’s agenda is clear: approve of my lifestyle or pay the consequences! At first, the cases were few and far between. Now the number of cases are building, and the collective threat is growing, with the goal of suffocating Christians’ vocal opposition to promoting a lifestyle which is not consistent with their faith. What will you do? Will you give in to their agenda by saying and doing nothing? Or will you lead yourself, your family, your church, and your community? Our nation, our children need leadership. What you choose will impact generations to come. To paraphrase a quote from Winston Churchill: ‘If you do not fight when you have a chance of winning, you will eventually fight when you have no hope of winning, because it will be better to die than to live.'”
The good news? Bigots ARE dying off in droves as the older generation reaches its end.
