  1. Hate to p!ss on his cornflakes, but far more straight folks are having anal sex than the LGBT folks.

    And why is it that, whenever they think of us, they immediately picture sex acts? I can talk to and about heterosexuality without immediately running 9 and 1/2 weeks through my head, why can’t they do us the same courtesy.

    Except, of course, for them it is a “fantasy of the forbidden” – something that fascinates them, and that they fixate on, and which tends to suggest something rattling about in closets. Indeed, the more hysterical they are (like this man) the funnier it becomes.

    1. It’s also worth noting that these folks always seen to forget lesbians. The natural biological state is female; and the number of women on the planet exceed the number of men. It’s reasonable to assume therefore that the number of lesbians is greater than the number of homosexual men; yet constantly these people focus on gay men only.
      It says something when (generally male) politicians start going on about the “dirty, repulsive” act between men. One dost protest too much methinks.

      Odd that, isn’t it, that so many homophobes and religious nutters obsess about gay sex and we don’t nor do the majority of heterosexuals. Quite revealing. Maybe it’s something that they really want for themselves?

      A while back when J. Falwell was alive and issuing fatwas on outliers, one journalist commented about him that fundamentalists seem to have an unnatural subversive fascination with anything gay.

  2. You would have hoped that someone who is also a lawyer, which should mean he is intelligent, would know better than this.

    Oh yes, he is a Roman Catholic, and the clouds anything else.

    He is nothing but a bigoted old fool and should retire now and let those who are more in touch with reality take over.

      at least he doesnt think we can be ‘cured’

      1. Well if he does think that, its not been reported!

  3. Mr Gerlein, if you think that gay sex is dirty and repulsive, don’t do it! But don’t you dare tell me that what you find disgusting is what everybody else should find disgusting. That’s a vile, totalitarian concept that you should distance yourself from immediately.

  4. You are quite right in that he is a Roman Catholic and therefore mentally ill. He should immediately have been taken away and given some form of remedial therapy.

  5. It’s not Columbia, it’s COLOMBIA! They are Colombians!

    Although there’s still a long way to go there as a society, the political situation for LGBT rights seems to have moved very fast over the last few years in Colombia.

  6. I think old Gerlien is a bit deficient in the, ahem, hypothalamus himself.

    [PN: Colombia/Colombian, not Columbia/n.]

  7. Alison Dilly 22 Nov 2012, 2:11pm

    How is he so sure gay sex is wrong? Has he ever tried having it with a gay man?

  8. Colombia is spelled with two O’s, not with a U. Please fix this if you are able to edit the text. Thank you.

  9. Poor guy… had he douched beforehand he may not have found the experience so “excremental”.

  10. He looks looks the predator with it’s mask

  11. “In a rant that last for nearly twenty minutes….”

    Not at all obsessed then *rolls eyes* Another case of someone taking out their frustration about their own inadequacies by attacking other people.

  12. Would somebody please help me collar this ignorant little man so we can take him to that hotel I stayed at some months ago where they were running straight porno movies non-stop on the hotel TV channels and nearly every one of them involved women taking it “excrementally” with both the givers and the takers absolutely loving it!!!!!!

    No doubt this bigot would say such women all have the same degraded hypothalamus as dirty homosexuals!

  13. who cares what this self loathing closet thinks –

    And why do these bigots obsess so much about our sex – we don’t give their attempts a second thought?

  14. Cardinal Capone 22 Nov 2012, 2:39pm

    He seems a bit obsessive about gay sex. Same old story I expect .

  15. Dirty and repulsive? Sometimes. It’s still awesome though!

  16. yeah…because all homosexuals are men, right? Idiot man.

  17. Robert in S. Kensington 22 Nov 2012, 3:12pm

    He needs to rent more porn flicks. It’s fraught with hard core hetero anal sex acts.

    I once read an article on an American blogsite which said that a study revealed that pornography has the highest number of subscribers in states where conservative and extreme religious nutters reside. Utah is one of them, the Mormon state I might add. Most of them are concentrated in the southern states and middle of America where most vote republican.

    I wouldn’t mind bettting Gerlein has some dirty little secrets of his own.

  18. Chances are he is taking it in the rear being a politician. He most likely works for the drug cartels or some other rich scum, like most high paid prostitutes he gets a lot to bend over for them. He is also pimping for the Catholic Church, getting boys for the pedophile Catholic Priest who have escaped justice for raping children in other countries. Everybody knows the drug cartels run Columbia but the Catholic Church and the Pope likes their money and even helps them launder it.

  19. Another case of “I have gay friends”
    As though that’s a ‘get out of jail free card’ when you’ve just thrown 20 minutes of insults at those same friends.
    It’s like Ahmadinejad saying he has “Jewish friends”. Laughable.

  20. …this unsuitable deranged twit of a senator obviously knows nothing about sex–could it be due to the fact he doesn’t get any? But for a start I feel insulted because as being gay myself I do not have a filthy asshole like he may have so sex for me isn’t dirty at all, and he needs to really get out more often, like other comments, what on earth does he think? That heterosexuals have cleaner sex? what a load of rubbish he most definitely is sad in my opinion.

  21. Equally outrageous as his statements about gay sex is the supposition that he has “highly intelligent homosexual friends”. Doubtful they are friends; more likely they are examples of “keep your friends close and your enemies closer”.

  22. That There Other David 22 Nov 2012, 4:04pm

    Smaller hypothalamus or not I’m pretty certain I’m a lot smarter than Señor Gerlien. He appears to have proven that himself ;-)

    1. That There Other David 22 Nov 2012, 4:05pm

      Oh yeah, BTW, Colombia’s finally debating equal marriage!! Yay!! :-)

    2. Dan Filson 22 Nov 2012, 4:14pm

      No evidence whatever of smaller hypothalamus. Bogus science!

      1. That There Other David 22 Nov 2012, 4:23pm

        Of course it’s bogus. Everything people like him ever mention in their rants is nothing more than invented rubbish, including their “close homosexual friends”.

  23. I know this is a little off topic but does anyone else think he seems to resemble Mr Potato head a little?

  24. I had to raise an eyebrow or three when I read of a Colombian politician talking of that which is “dirty and repulsive”. Colombia and its drugs cartels and corruption is the “dirty and repulsive” stain on the world. Would love to do a forensic audit of Gerlein’s finances!

  25. So on the one hand he thinks gayness is a physical ‘condition’ we’re hardwired with which can’t be helped no matter how many ex-gay therapists we visit (at least I can agree on that bit), but goes on to say everyone should condemn the gays anyhow, just because.
    Nice to know he doesn’t hold our fundamental nature against us.

  26. Garry Cassell 22 Nov 2012, 4:22pm

    Another senile old political fart that just wants to get some attention…too bad he has nothing positive to say about anything…can only assume he got no sex lately…got to blame someone…

  27. Talking from experience, is he????? I wonder how small his hypothalamus is???

  28. 74-year-old Senator Roberto Gerlein is dirty and repulsive, his excremental remarks deserve condemnation, poor thing.

  29. He “had “highly intelligent homosexual friends.”

    Even with small brains?

    I’d like to measure his brain. Can that be arranged?

  30. Best he doesn’t do it then. I’d find sex with him pretty repulsive, I have to admit.

  31. I’d rather have a small brain than a small mind like this senile old coffin dodger

  32. Again, another homophobe obsessed with the graphic details of gay sex, spouting pseudoscience to support his unfounded opinions and at the same time paradoxically trying to remedy the situation with the old “I have gay friends” excuse. Nothing new.

    1. Oh they all seem to have, “homosexual” friends but for some very strange reason, this doesn’t stop them from ranting and raving against gay people. One word of advice to, Mr Gerlien; if you think that gay sex is dirty and repulsive… then you must be doing it the wrong way!

  33. darkmoonman 22 Nov 2012, 11:59pm

    Ciertamente, un viejo político colombiano heterosexual católico debe saber todo acerca de tomarlo hasta el culo.

  34. darkmoonman 23 Nov 2012, 12:02am

    The nation is “Colombia” with an “o”. “Columbia” with a “u” is the state capitol of South Carolina, USA.

  35. Interesting, isn’t it, that these righteous puritans always think of anal sex when they think about gay people. But when they think about straight people what do they think about?

  36. Gay activist Paul Mitchell 23 Nov 2012, 2:52am

    Sounds very much the same as a politician named Fred Nile – who is also in his 70′s, in the upper house chamber of the state of New South Wales in Australia!

  37. Meh, he’s probably secretly gay and wants it really bad.

  38. Staircase2 26 Nov 2012, 1:23pm

    What’s the chances he’s a closet?

    ps on a point of article accuracy, he didn’t say that gay men have ‘smaller brains’ – he said “The homosexual has a smaller hypothalamus (a portion of the brain)”

    Please amend, Pink News

    1. Pink News dont care about accuracy, all they care about is advancing the gay agenda

  39. Some of the comments by these gays shows their hypocrisy and bigotry. They get upset that this Colombian senator insults them, but, they have no problem using their bigotry against Colombia and Colombians. How pathetic of you uneducated gay bigots.
