Robert Knight gets too homophobic even for me

There are times when religious right figures say things so nastily homophobic, so unbelievable that it's a waste to decipher the comment.

The only thing you can do is just allow the comment to speak for itself.

Today's piece by Coral Ridge Ministry writer (and perennial anti-gay) Robert Knight on DADT in the Washington Times is a perfect example. Here is a choice morsel:

Forcing open homosexuality on the armed forces would destroy the volunteer military and bring back the compulsory draft. Since women are now deployed close to combat, and the only legal reason they are not eligible is their combat exemption, a new draft could include our daughters. And some would face pressure to have on-base abortions in order to complete their tours of duty.

Chaplains would be the first victims of Mr. Obama's homosexualization of the military, followed by anyone who violated "zero tolerance" policies for homosexual acceptance. Bible-believing Christians would quickly find themselves unwelcome in Barney Frank's new pansexual, cross-dressing military.

Other fallout includes family housing, reduction in retention, recruitment and unit cohesion, an increase in homosexual sexual assaults and a boost to overturning the federal Defense of Marriage Act.

He forgot the rampant cannibalism and forced tattooing. Or does that come later? I wouldn't know because national headquarters hasn't sent me the latest copy of the "Gay Agenda" as of yet.

It's not surprising to hear Knight go off the deep end about lgbts. After all, what else can one expect from a man who freely cites the work of the discredited Paul Cameron; a man who believes that gays wallow in feces when we aren't sticking gerbils up our rear ends.

I have an interesting story about Knight and Cameron which I recounted in my 2007 book Holy Bullies and Headless Monsters. I had the distinct (dis)pleasure of meeting Knight at the University of South Carolina in 2004. I was able to point blank ask him why does he use the work of the discredited Cameron.

His answer to me was, and I quote:

“Yes we have used his research. So what?”

And this is the guy who is supposed help preserve "Christian values?"

All I can say is that if Knight ever becomes involved in some type of "rentboy" scandal, I will be the first to ship him to one of those ex-gay camps.

After all, we can't let just anybody in the lgbt community.
