14-year-old accuses President Obama of making children gay

From The Huffington Post comes an absolutely ridiculous story:

A West Virginia-based teen radio host is making waves after proclaiming that President Obama "is making kids gay" in a recent episode.

Fourteen-year-old Caiden Cowger, who hosts the twice-weekly "Caiden Cowger Show," made his anti-gay proclamations in a recent broadcast, video of which was uploaded to his YouTube channel on May 26. "Homosexuality is a belief," Cowger, who has previously interviewed former GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain, declares. "The person is not born that way, no matter what Lady Gaga is a decision."

After confessing that he was once friends with some kids who have since come out as gay, he notes, "They were not homosexuals [then]...they just decided all of a sudden, 'I think I'm going to be gay,'" before he eventually concludes, "I'm going to tell you this, guys:  President Obama...Vice President making kids gay!"
Cowger, who is identified by The New Civil Rights Movement as a Pentecostal Christian, slams homosexuality as "a perverted belief, it's immoral and not natural" before noting, "I'm not for bullying homosexuals, I believe that it's wrong. But when you're trying to teach them the word of God and they consider that bullying...I find that a big problem, not being allowed to convert other people to my religion."

Please guys, no rude comments. This is just a 14-year-old child who doesn't know his ass from his elbow. No doubt the right will embrace him as a truth-teller, but in reality he is a mere child talking about things he knows nothing about.

And though some folks may disagree with me giving him attention, I say when the  right shows its ignorance, shine a spotlight on it.

I mean really . . . from coaching three-year-olds to sing anti-gay songs in church to encouraging 14-year-olds to accuse Obama of making children gay.

Come on, guys on the right. Even if you have no sense of decency, where is your sense of self-respect?

It's really sad, but it's a good sign when right-wing people scream louder and crazier. The fact that it's now reaching into the younger generations is particularly telling. This kid at least has all the time in the world to grow into a compassionate human, unlike the numerous religious leaders that have been calling for our genocide recently. It's a terrible thing, but it's a sign that we're succeeding in the long run. (Kind of like when a cut drives you crazy with itching as it heals.)

On another note, I'm always embarrassed to be reminded of the stupid things I said and did as a teenager. I cannot imagine this kid's future shame with it being captured forever in video.

Just gotta hope this kid has someone in his life to just say, "no, honey. It doesn't work like that."

If 14 year olds are so wise, why can't we elect them to the presidency?
