    ok, read this twice and I still don’t understand what on earth hes waffling on about apart from the face he has issues where homosexuality is concerned and he’s barking mad.

    1. His argument is absolutely devoid of sense and contains numerous non sequiturs. It’s like a parody :D

      1. auntie babs 23 Feb 2013, 7:05pm

        thanks Iris…I was beginning to think it was just me.

  2. I’m sure white supremacists used to say similar things about racial equality. He should be embarrassed about his bigotry and hate.

  3. Robert in S. Kensington 22 Feb 2013, 7:20pm

    To think he spawned a lesbian daughter whom he later disowned in 2007 cutting her off financially. Drop dead Keyes, you vile bigoted man.

      Typical ad hominem attack from a prctitioner of deviance. The commentator was attacking a behaviour but as always attack the person. You are clearly unable to reconcile your hypocritical position which states that consenting adults should be allowed to do what they wish in private. If that was the law, then this would indeedopen the ay for consensual adult incest.
      If however you concede (and you have never done so) that there should be restrictions governing consenting adult sex, then this opens the debate as to whether same sex should be one of those restrictions. There is a strong biblical argument against homosexual acts and therefore same sex marriage.
      Do you think that whatever consenting adults get up to in the bedroom should be their own business?

      1. spookiewon 23 Feb 2013, 4:44pm

        Relating a true event or events in a person’s life is not ad hominem.

      2. spookiewon 23 Feb 2013, 5:01pm

        Why should there be any restrictions on consenting adult sex? I doubt he believes there should be. Why would he? I have no issue with “consenting adult incest” as you put it. You folks don’t seem to know what consent means. It’s why fundamentalists blame women for their own rapes. They don’t understand what is required for consent. And we do not care what your holy book says; it’s just another work of fiction to us, and not a particularly well-written one.

        1. “Where a consenting adult father and son can have anal sex and marry”???

          You have an over-active, disgusting imagination. Gay people aren’t related and we’re completely legal. GET OVER IT! If you can’t you REALLY need to see a doctor.

        2. OMG! Hahahahahahahahahahaha
          Stupid as.

        It is always important to consider the messenger when considering the content of the message. As for your other comments you’re conflating several different issues. There is nothing hypocritical about believing that incest is wrong but homosexuality isn’t, they are different issues.

        Oh and actually you’ll find plenty of Biblical scholars who would disagree that there is a strong biblical argument against homosexual acts and even if there is, so what? The Bible also contains a strong argument in favour of slavery.

        1. Deviant-- abominations 23 Feb 2013, 8:10pm

          Slavery in Israel was humane and did not consist of whips and chains. Prisoners of war these days would be the Israelite slaves, except there were strict rules to protect the slaves from inhumanity just as there are with todays POWs.
          No scholar alive or dead can successfully challenge the clear warnibngs of men lying with men etc in the bible. Many have tried and failed.
          It is hypocritical to claim that consenting adults be absolutely allowed to practice sex without interference from the government then claim to be against incest and polygamy as many of te deviant brigade are. They wish to legalize only their own brand of deviance, not the deviance of others, all the while saying that consenting adult sex practices do no harm in private!
          They should decide whether they want the government in the bedroom or not. If they want government in the bedroom,then they should not say that it is nobodys’ business etc etc.

          1. bobbleobble 23 Feb 2013, 9:28pm

            It doesn’t matter how wonderful you believe slavery was in the olden days today societies hold that one person cannot belong to another because it is immoral. And yet the Bible, your font of all that is moral, has no problem with slavery (or for that matter incest – lot and his daughters for example – or polygamy – David and Solomon weren’t short of a few wives).

            Biblical scholars have indeed cast doubt on what the Bible says in relation to gay sex, the fact that you don’t agree with them doesn’t make them wrong.

            My argument in relation to gay sex is not that everyone should be able to do whatever they like but rather that my natural sexuality should be treated the same as everyone else’s. therefore I too cannot have sex with a minor, with my brother or sister or another relative or with someone else who does not consent. Incest and polygamy are different issues with different arguments for and against and you do your arguments a disservice by trying to conflate them.

      4. Deviant (great apt name, btw!), you’re using up oxygen.

      5. @Deviant– abominations….its time for you medication.

  4. Jock S. Trap 22 Feb 2013, 7:34pm

    Oh yeah… their arguments seem to be leading to total boredom.

  5. Jason Feather 22 Feb 2013, 7:59pm

    Another voice from the psychiatric ward

  6. Keyes was imported to run against Barack Obama for the Senate — he bought a house in Illinois so he could run — and lost the election 70/30. And now he writes for Wingnut Daily. I suppose that’s a step up for him.

  7. US COLUMNIST SAYS EQUAL RIGHTS WILL LEAD TO LEGALISATION OF INCEST, PAEDOPHILIA AND RAPE***

    *** Rape OTHER than the Transvaginal Surgical Steel Republican Government Mandated Freedom Rape Probes

  8. Well Alan Keyes should know, he looks like a paedo rapist who gets involved in incest.

  9. That There Other David 22 Feb 2013, 9:37pm

    Meh. It’s WorldNetDaily. They’re part of the Right Wing Echo Chamber.

    And they, like the anti-equality people here in the UK, don’t seem to understand that LGBT rights aren’t an “elitist” thing. Most people in our societies now support LGBT rights. They’re the odd ones out, the people out of step with the common man. It’s testament to how closed in the Echo Chamber is that they cannot see that.

  10. ...Paddyswurds 22 Feb 2013, 10:17pm

    Just further proof that these creationists and religiously deluded idiots are the ones calling for the legalising of incest and more importantly padeophilia. Perhaps they think if they talk about it enough it will become part of the discourse and that they will eventually be able to call for it outright. I think the Roman Cult is first and foremost behind this as they think that their historic crimes against the worlds children will then be set aside and forgiven….. Not gonna happen Joe, just as the historic crimes against the Jewish people by your bosses the Naz1s won’t be forgotten……

    1. spookiewon 23 Feb 2013, 5:06pm

      Did you have to Godwin this thread? It doesn’t win debates you know…

      1. ...Paddyswurds 24 Feb 2013, 5:37pm

        Eh? Your talking through your arse again, idiot!

  11. He appears to conveniently forget how black people were once treated, what they were called and thought about by white people and the terrible calamities predicted for society if blacks were given rights. Black people should be able to understand the injustice of not having equality despite not having a choice in being who and what we are. Like any black homophobe, he’s acting like a white supremacist and is an embarrassment to his race.

  12. a bigoted negro-so tragic

  13. Strange that the story didn’t mention that his daughter is very publicly and openly lesbian.

  14. Did giving equal rights to black people lead to “incest and paedophilia should be considered the same, that tolerating gay people is like being forced to cook and serve pork, despite a religious aversion to it, and that rape will be legalised if equal rights are given”???

    America had dreadful discrimination towards its Native Americans and black citizens until recent times but the sky didn’t fall in once the unjust laws were repealed as far as I noticed.

    1. spookiewon 23 Feb 2013, 4:30pm

      That is what I came here to say. People said that if we allow the races to mix people will start doing all those depraved things he is claiming (except the absurd pork nonsense) too. So would he be happy returning to segregation and miscegeny laws? Why can’t these nutters see that neither marriage nor sexual orientation are about sex? Marriage is about forming a legal relationship that confers the rights of a familial one–it’s an entirely LEGAL concept, not a religious one. And sexual orientation determines what gender one forms these primary attachments with. Sex is entirely secondary to these things, and what consenting adults do in private is nobody else’s business!

    What a nasty ungodly twat

  16. cozmo lizard 23 Feb 2013, 1:08pm

    I love the unintended irony of linking forcing folks with a religious aversion to eating pork, to allowing gay marriage. Keyes is attempting to force his religious views on the rest of us.

  17. Staircase2 23 Feb 2013, 1:10pm

    And the analogy to cooking pork is bollocks

    I’m a vegetarian – I don’t cook meat for meat eating friends or serve or have it in my own home but I don’t insist they can’t do that themselves in their own homes…

    What a bloody idiot..

    1. spookiewon 23 Feb 2013, 4:35pm

      You don’t consider it “offensive” and warn people that if we allow people to eat. Meat it’s a slippery slope and pretty soon people will consider cannibalism okay? I mean, eating a steak is pretty much the same as slaughtering your neighbor and eating him, right?

  18. Robert A. Cuthbertson, M.D. 23 Feb 2013, 2:04pm

    yes, for some of us being gay is the other white meat.
    Where do you people come up with this crap? Seriously, the sodomy laws in the US were overturned by the SCOTUS..they did not touch incest, pedophilia, etc. Please learn to read..it is fundamental…and BTW..I do not mean to read that crazy book you keep reading…the bible..it doesn’t make sense..never did, never will..and you keep quoting it…geesh…join the 21st century already.

    1. spookiewon 23 Feb 2013, 4:40pm

      Those people quoting the bible don’t read the bible, they quote things other people have related to them. Reading it would make them atheists; many formerly xian atheists became atheists by reading the bible cover to cover trying to strengthen their xian faith.

  19. Keith Chadwick 23 Feb 2013, 2:41pm

    And the ‘Jim Crow would have been Proud’ award goes to this African American Columnist who fights to keep discrimination alive. His award is aptly titled as Mr. Crow would have been very proud of him using the same arguments he did.

  20. Deviant-- abominations 23 Feb 2013, 4:22pm

    @ Robert S Kensington.
    Typical ad hominem attack from a practitioner of deviance. The commentator was attacking a behaviour but as always attack the person. You are clearly unable to reconcile your hypocritical position which states that consenting adults should be allowed to do what they wish in private. If that was the law, then this would indeedopen the ay for consensual adult incest.

    Do you think that whatever consenting adults get up to in the bedroom should be their own business?

    1. ‘Deviant’ – if you’re not gay (I doubt it, unless you’re very deep in the closet) or don’t want to come out, or if you’re not gay-friendly (lol, you’re so not gay-friendly!) then….P!SS OFF BACK INTO YOUR CAVE.

    2. Get well soon you sad lonely pervert!

  21. ““Moreover, unless we mean to repeal the laws against rape, no one can by law be forced to respect or cater to the sexual appetites of others.”

    How on earth did he get to that? :D What a total nonsequitur!

    They should bring out a game based on fundie arguments :D – you earn points for how many non sequiturs you use in constructing a stupid argument using deductions that don’t make sense. I reckon Mr Keyes is top-scorer at the moment!

  22. Some black people have very short memories!

  23. Sounds just like the kind of argument white supremecists used to use against giving black people the vote.

  24. Funny, doesn’t the Fundamentalist Mormon Church sect in Utah already do the three (plus polygamy) ? In fact its leader, Warren Jeffs, who for some time was placed on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted List was sentenced to life in prison for doing the three “abominations”, so if there is someone who is going to lead the US into incest, paedophilia and rape it’s you fanatic Christians.
