Mad props to Box Turtle Bulletin
First of all, I want to give a huge shout out to Jim Burroway and Box Turtle Bulletin (linked below) for their excellent parody, The Heterosexual Agenda: Exposing The Myths (http://www.boxturtlebulletin.com/Articles/000,015.htm)
I invite everyone to download the piece and especially pay attention to the final part. It breaks down how exactly the anti-gay industry has been lying on us for the past decade.
Ben Stein is a big fat homophobe (my apologies to Al Franken)
It was bound to happen.
Members of the anti-gay industry and others are now attempting sneak in a condemnation of homosexuality into the Mark Foley controversy.
For the record, Foley’s misconduct is a case of a grown man taking advantage of a child and sexual orientation has nothing to do with it.
Not that it would do any good, but I wish someone would mention that little fact to our friend Peter LaBarbera. He is practically salivating for the chance to use the Foley controversy as another chance to demonize the gay community.
I wrote LaBarbera a letter calling attention to his hypocrisy, although I know he won’t answer it.
For him, a chance to attack the gay community is like manna from heaven.
However, I am very disappointed in who else has joined in. Former game show host and Nixon apologist Ben Stein has gotten into the act with his column, Hypocrisy, Democrat Style (http://www.spectator.org/dsp_article.asp?art_id=10434), in which he says:
"I hope it won't come as a surprise to anyone that a big part of male homosexual behavior is interest in young boys."
Please bear in mind that not only Stein does not give any proof of this but he also claims:
"I have many gay friends and they are great people."
Even when they are molesting children, Ben? I didn’t know you were so solicitous to pedophiles.
When I read Stein’s column, I can understand why some gay leaders have been silent about going on record regarding Mark Foley.
When Polly Klaas, Samantha Runion, or any other young girl was abducted, sexually abused, and murdered, no one said that the crimes committed against them were indicative of the nature of the heterosexual male.
But when that innocent young boy Jesse Dirkhising was sexually abused and murdered in 1999, LaBarbera and others like him attempted to crucify the entire gay community for the crime, instead of the young men involved.
Now it seems that Stein is in on the act.
For the record, there is no link between pedophilia and homosexuality.
The American Psychological Association, the National Association of Social Workers, the American Academy of Child Psychiatrists and the Child Welfare League of America all attest to this fact.
Stein’s column adds up to homophobia, pure and simple. It is one thing to think that homosexuality is a sin but to use that belief to make the claim that homosexuality and pedophilia are connected is just wrong.
A wise man once said, "a racist is a man who eats with black people, knows black people, have black friends, but sees a black man taken away in handcuffs and swears that the criminal is indicative of the entire race."
Stein proves that this adage is also true about homophobes.
