The 'Complete' Words of love? A reminder of what some people really think about the lgbt community

The following is a combination of two of my popular posts. From time to time,I repost them so that folks are not deceived by the "I'm only expressing my personal, deeply held religious beliefs" talking points of religious right groups and supporters. It is about hate, pure and simple, as well as fear and ignorance.

Well they can tell you better than me:

Linda Harvey - the former advertising executive who "found Jesus"  and founded the religious right group Mission America. Subsequently this supposedly entitles her to become an "expert" of all things regarding the lgbt community. It allows her to say the following mess:

When people have views supporting homosexuality, they should not be involved with youth in any way, period. Here’s why:
• They will provide inaccurate, misleading information to kids;
• They may limit a student’s opportunity to hear warnings about the behavior;
• They may advocate or model inappropriate behavior;
• They may be directly involved in the molestation of kids themselves; or
• They may be in a position to allow others to do so. - Fairy Tales Don't Come True: Impressionable Kids and Homosexuality

Kevin McCullough - conservative columnist, leader of the so-called "Musclehead Revolution" and an all-around strange character who feels that since he is a man who has fathered a son whose skin is darker than the average African American (his exact words), he can tell the black community just how "evil" Obama is.

Hush up y'all about how "right" McCullough may be about Obama. The point is that his ridiculous comments about the President falls in line with the absolutely inane things he has said about the lgbt community in 2003: 

The "alphas" in homosexual relationships, be they men or women, are many times recruiting younger partners. A vast percentage of those who enter the homosexual life do so after having been sexually initiated by an older person of their sex – be it consensual or not – it usually has the feel of enticement or seduction. - The 'gay' truth

Guy Adams - Rounding out the lower echeleon list of anti-gay nobodies is this mean looking fellow, Guy Adams. If you are not familiar with him there is a reason for that. In 2006, the one-time bodyguard of  Alan Keyes said probably the most ugly, rudest thing ever about lgbts. It was so nasty that I don't think that Peter LaBarbera or Matt Barber at their most logically gymnastic could defend it:

The newest thing in Chicago, it's becoming a trend—and you're going to find this hard to believe—sex with infants. It's not enough that they have—you know, when you engage in perversion, and homosexuality is perversion—we don't hate the gays mind you, we don't hate them, we hate what they're doing—pretty soon that perversion is like addiction, it's not enough, so you need to graduate to something else. You need to move on. So now they're having sex with animals, a small group that's getting bigger, sex with infants, sex in the street in Chicago out in the open—it's just getting more and more perverted. So, I just don’t believe that there are a lot of really, really good gays.

After this comment, Adams has since retreated into his cocoon of crazy and I haven't heard from him since.

Ken Hutcherson - Of course this list must be multi-racial because ignorant, homophobic comments are like diseases; they know no color, gender, or religion. And who better to put in this list than perennial Microsoft stock threatener Ken Hutcherson. Hutcherson has never met a self-aggrandizing comment that he didn't like.

But the one thing he does not like are polite men because polite men are not macho:

"If I was in a drugstore and some guy opened the door for me, I'd rip his arm off and beat him with the wet end."

Supposedly it was a joke. But Hutcherson comes across as funny as "the itch." And his comments take a deeper resonance when one remembers his past protests against GLSEN's Day of Silence.

Chris Buttars - This lovely Utah representative who looks as if he has a low tolerance for gassy people doesn't necessarily like lgbts. But the folks in Utah seem to like him because they keep electing him to office. Maybe some folks like to hear such comments as

Homosexuality will always be a sexual perversion. And you say that around here now and everybody goes nuts. But I don't care. They're mean. They want to talk about being nice. They're the meanest buggers I have ever seen. It's just like the Muslims. Muslims are good people and their religion is anti-war. But it’s been taken over by the radical side. What is the morals of a gay person? You can't answer that because anything goes. They're probably the greatest threat to America going down I know of."

Anita Bryant - Come on guys. You know that girlfriend was going to be included. Anita Bryant who galvanized both sides of the aisle of gay rights in her successful attempt to get a Florida non-discrimination ordinance repealed in . She claimed to do it because she was worried that gays "recruit" children. I bet you all think that her quote about gays supposedly recruiting children is the reason why she made this list. It isn't. She had a funnier quote in Playboy magazine:

In a long Playboy interview, Bryant claimed that homosexuals are called "fruits" because "they eat the forbidden fruit of the tree of life. God referred to men as trees, and because the homosexuals eat the forbidden fruit, which is male sperm."

Speaking of fruits, everyone knows the story of how she was hit in the face with a fruit pie by an angry gay activist. Hell, seeing that picture is required for every lgbt entering the "lifestyle."  Well let me just say for the record that I totally disagree with her being hit with the pie. But God help me, when she broke down while praying after getting the pieing, I didn't feel sorry for her.

Reverend Gregory Daniels - Daniels was a black minister in Chicago. In 2004, he made the following comment:

"If the KKK opposes gay marriage, I would ride with them."

He later tried to de-emphasize the stupidity of his comment by saying that it was a mere indication of how strong he as a black man oppose gay marriage.

I say Rev. Daniels is !#@#*!!@ and also (CENSORED)!

His First Amendment right to say stupid crap is beside the point. I'm not against him speaking his mind.

But shouldn't one have a mind before choosing to speak it.  For those who are curious, the picture I choose to show is not a picture of the Rev. Daniels, but a jackass - my equivalent of any black man who will brag about teaming up with the Ku Klux Klan for any reason.
