    I pity his poor daughter who is a lesbian. Another religious nutter from America we can do without. What an embarrassment these people are not just to themselves but to their country. He makes Stephen Green look tame by comparison.

    1. Scott Larsen 15 Apr 2013, 6:26pm

      How about a really outlandish comment like the kind Keyes spews?

      The are signs of regression from descendants of slaves who will stand against their own self interests and try to limit other people’s freedoms in making outrageous and false claims.

    2. Although he is mostly ignored these days, don’t forget just how brutally bigoted Green was in his past rants. He seemed to live to blast gay people as being evil, perverted, mentally ill, etc, as well as scribing a press release suggesting that New Orleans deserved Hurricane Katrina.

    3. No more religious nutcases. 15 Apr 2013, 6:35pm

      That’s Stephen “Birdshit” Green to his friends since he was ranting on one day in the street about the no-mo-sechsualls and a passing bird shit on his head. Thanks yuh Jazus, lemme hear a thanks yuh Jazus, and lo behold “Birdshit” was he name’d. Praise Jazus!

      1. No, that’s stephen ‘Wifebeater’ Green- lest we forget…

  2. These increasingly desperate hellfire and brimstone rants really have become ten-a-penny and I’m quite convinced that other right wing Christians who would not go that far in their language do not speak out against them for fear of being divisive.

    ‘went on to claim that “every society” which allowed gay rights had “crashed and burned”.’

    As opposed to all the third world countries in which it is dangerous to even be ‘out’ which are functioning like well-oiled machines, huh?

    1. “every society in the history of the world that has accepted homosexuality has crashed and burned.”

      I think he means every society in the history of the world, whatever it’s attitude to homosexuality, has crashed and burned. Or they would still be here. Which ones didn’t accept homosexuality and are still here?

      In reality those societies that have been the most anti gay have had the shortest lifespan. Rome lasted hundreds of years, Nazi Germany lasted about a decade.

  3. I think it’s brilliant when these anti-gay crackpots come out of the woodwork. They are doing a great job – for equality! Who would listen to this bloke and think, “Yeah, he’s got a point there!” except for those lacking in the full sandwich department themselves. They seem to be preaching to themselves – an ever smaller audience.

  4. Because telling people what they can watch or listen to and whom they should love and marry are all signs of democratic non communist state!

    Not all that long ago the idea of a black person hosting a TV show and inter-racial marriage was said to be the tipping point for Americas decent into communism… Today we have a person of colour making the same lame argument without even considering the irony of it all.

    Maybe he should watch out for the weight of history thats about to use his words as the footnote to the stupidity of homophobic bigotry.

  5. The Commies and Satan are teaming up with the Gays to destroy America!

    I just cannot understand how anyone can think this makes any kind of sense. It couldn’t have been more ridiculous if he was wearing a tin foil hat and talking about homosexuals stealing his brain waves.

    1. Especially since his brain waves are flatlining.

  6. Never a shortage of nutters

    Why are mentally ill people given such credence in the USA

    1. The first ammendment of our U.S. Constitution guarantees freedom of speech. Viewed from one standpoint, one could say that it allows all manner of utterances, be they good or bad.

      There is one thing, however, that the purveyers of hate and vilification seem to have overlooked, and always to their lasting regret. Though that ammendment guarantees free speech, it does not, I may point out, guarantee freedom from the consequences from said speech, and it is those self same consequences they will be dealing with, for years to come.

      1. Freedom of speech exists elsewhere. There seems to be an odd attitude in the American media that any viewpoint, no matter how insane or irrational, is somehow equal in value to any other viewpoint.

  8. Alan Keyes is obviously receiving messages from creatures on Alpha Centauri through his toaster…

  9. Robert in S. Kensington 15 Apr 2013, 7:41pm

    Not one mainstream religious prelate would ever condemn them would they?

    On this side of the pond, I never heard Rowan Williams or fellow Archbigot Nichols ever say one thing against Stephen Green and certainly nothing against that which came from the vile mouths of Sharon James, Ann Widdecombe, Anna Minichiello or Lord Carey for that matter as well as equally vile rhetoric from mostly Tory opponents in Parliament, people such as Loughton, Burrowes, Whittaker, Dorries, Davies, Gale, Leigh and others. Disgusting and they claim their not homophobic. Bull shitting liars.

  10. So the Communists and the Devil have nothing better to do all day so they decided to destroy America and kill its population ? Damn !! I told the nurse to keep the doors of the asylum locked !! The inmates are running away again !

  11. Another under 40 IQ.

  12. Alan Keyes is right that the Devil is intent on ruining America. The problem is that Mr. Keyes IS the Devil. His first target is to gut the U.S. Constitution, starting with the Fourteenth Amendment, by ending legal equality.

    1. And still by insanely claiming anything he speaks is “grounded in the principles of the Declaration”.

  13. I find it constantly amazing that people, like Keyes can spew comments such as he has and is never challenged to provide concrete, verifyable, facts to support his allegations.
    Ah well, in the end, when we finally attain our deserved equality, all the naysayers and liars will have to live with their words, which will always be somewhere on the internet, and those ghosts will haunt them, wherever they go. They’ll spend the rest of their miserable lives trying to explain their venom while the rest of us go on with our lives and build a much more humane and inclusive world.

    Like the gays who were “branded” with the pink triangle and vilified, they will be branded with their own Scarlet “H”, for hater. The one difference will be that it will be of their own creation and they’ll be reminded of it, each time they try to blame it on us.

  14. I would love to dismiss this guy as the mentally ill person he obviously is, but let’s not forget, in this country, the government, the daily mail, the sun, IDS etc etc promote stuff that is just as nuts- and the public swallow it whole. There is no national limit on stupidity.

    1. Robert in S. Kensington 16 Apr 2013, 12:40pm

      There hasn’t been one MP in support of EM condemning it either. They’re all afraid of the right wing christian taliban and the abuse of religious freedom mantra they’ll be accused of. It’s revealing that when we fight for our rights, we’re accused by C4M/CI and all the other hate groups of having an agendum but when they traduce EM with disgustingly obsessive allusions to polygamy, bestiality and incest, the ‘redefining’ of marriage, the breakdown of society, they’re perceived as not having any. In their distorted view of democracy, they think everyone should behave as they do. They want nothing more than to impose religion on all of us, especially in Parliament.

      You omitted one other major player in the traducing of equal marriage and the accompanying hysteria, i.e. the BBC.

  15. Dennis Velco 15 Apr 2013, 11:04pm

    I’d be more inclined to say Gluttony is Satan’s plan to destroy America with 48% clinically obese whilst they ignore the Bible on that issue. The American Right Wingers are nothing but hypocrites.

    Crude and racist to the core.
    GROW UP.

  17. I can see it now. The rise of gay exorcisms. Since exorcisms is an expression of religion, they will claim it their right to exorcise anyone they choose.

  18. Very badly worded and clumsy, but he isn’t entirely wrong. Historically, societies with openly sanctioned, publicly visible homosexuality tend to be decadent societies on the verge of collapse. The constant presence of homosexuality in entertainment may seem good and progressive, but there are often consequences that you may not see at the time. If nothing else, I worry it may lead to a backlash against homosexuals.

    1. Jock S. Trap 16 Apr 2013, 9:06am

      And as this story and those alike show it’s not homosexuality that causes collapse of societies but the bigoted religious and their nasty religions..

    2. History is written by the victor, they can write whatever they like. Just because that was the view of the historian doesn’t mean it was true. History is filled with bigoted people talking rubbish.

      Just look at the ramblings of this man, will that be taken as truth in the future, America’s civilisation collapsed and, look it was foretold that it would if we accept homosexuals. If anyone really thinks that we cause the collapse of entire civilisations they are crediting us with far more power than we have.

      If anything, a more accepting society is less war mongering, more compliant and as a result is easier to take over by a hostile nation, but that has nothing to do specifically with homosexuals.

      I mean to credit us for the entire pop culture is amazing.

  19. Ironically, he is apparently oblivious to the fact that Canada, which has had marriage equality since 2005, has also been run by their Conservative Party for most of the years since. They show no signs of sliding into Communism anytime soon.

    1. Christopher in Canada 16 Apr 2013, 5:08pm

      Most Americans can’t find Canada on a map. Those that do assume we live in igloos. I think it’s due to all those American classrooms with a “floating Lower 48″ map hanging in the front of the room.

  20. Alan Keyes speaks to the ‘devil’/ ‘Satan’.
    He seems to know exactly want the ‘Satan’ wants. He is for the Stupid Party (a.k.a. Republican Party)

  21. So much BS in such a short interview.
    I’ve never understood why fundies imagine Satan is the enemy of God.
    When I was taught this baloney in school RE lessons it became pretty apparent that Satan not only works FOR God but does all the crappy jobs God doesn’t want to dirty his hands with, in his role as God’s jailer and torturer in chief.
    Which kind of makes him God’s bitch. Satan is as much a rebel against the ‘divine plan’ as Justin Bieber is.
    And how this make-believe incarnation of God’s civil servant would have a ‘plan to destroy America’ begs another 100 or so questions, such as how would Keyes know about this plan since it’s supposed to be secret/ who says Satan exists/ who says God exists?
    Which leads me to wonder why God would have rubberstamped destroying the USA since Satan just does what he’s told to do by the guy upstairs he supposedly fell out with?
    None of it makes any sense unless it’s all bullshit.

  22. hahahahahaha I’m sorry, but I can’t help but laugh at how ridiculous he is! What a nut job!

  23. Jock S. Trap 16 Apr 2013, 9:03am

    Yet again they accuse all others of what they are themselves.

    Totally ridiculous and completely pathetic.

    Religion doesn’t allow for democracy so whose the real dictators, the real communists!!

  24. Bob Hutton 16 Apr 2013, 9:35am

    I don’t hate gays and would never do them harm; however, it is clear that in the US and the UK the gay agenda is being driven by the devil as he seeks to undermine western civilisation.

    Moreover, the devil wants to use this issue to persecute those who believe the Bible to be the infallible word of God.

    However, the good news is that gays can be delivered of their sin by the power of God.

    1. Clear how exactly? Did god tell you? Did the devil tell you?
      How do you know what the devil wants?
      Did he send you his xmas list? Do you have a hotline?

      As for good news, firstly ‘news’ in the strictest sense requires a reliable source and empirical proof – both of which the bible falls well short of, secondly ‘good’ is entirely subjective in this context.

      You clearly don’t think much of gays since in a simple word association the first word you label them with is ‘sin’. If I said the word ‘hetrosexual’ somehow I doubt that would be your kneejerk response.

    2. I would love to know what this ‘gay agenda’ is of which you and many more like you speak, for I seem to have missed the memo on that one!

      Take your religious clap trap Bob and put it where the sun does not shine!

    3. Given that god the devil the Easter bunny – Santa (yes I said it ) are ALL fictions of stupid ignorant fools like you – exactly how do you justify your bigotry and hatred when it’s just you and your criminal opinions – go crawl back under your evolutionary rock

    4. But being gay is not a sin, what are you on about??

    5. Jock S. Trap 16 Apr 2013, 11:50am

      It would seem the only devil here Bob Hutton… is you!

      Religion is evil so YOU must represent the devil itself.

      Now, bugger off, I got a life to get on with.

    6. Bob I’m sorry to inform you that you are on the wrong side of good and evil.

      Lets take for one moment that there is God and the Devil. God created us all including homosexuals, you and the other people who have chosen this path are questionning gods wizdom. Who would do such a thing, oh yes Satan.

      Consider for a moment Bob that as a result of following a path of hatred towards one of gods creations, you are unwittingly following Satans path. Where will that send you when you are judged by the only being who can judge, god.

    7. Robert in S. Kensington 16 Apr 2013, 1:01pm

      The bible of contradiction and fairy tales also says that women should be killed for adultery and children for insolence. Why haven’t you plucked out your eyes or cut off your hands if something offends you? After all, the bible tells us so. Idiot!

    8. it is clear that in the US and the UK the gay agenda is being driven by the devil

      Just the other day The Gay Agenda was swarming, now it’s being driven. It’s awfully versatile for something that doesn’t exist, isn’t it?

  25. It’s the only way that little fools can get themselves noticed.

  26. HA AH AH HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA – WHAT A FOOL -

  27. douglas in canada 16 Apr 2013, 2:33pm

    If the “gay agenda” has more power than “your god”, he’s not as powerful as you claim.

    If his claim of being ‘all-powerful’ is your first lie, I can only assume that the rest is just as full of BS.

    I like the comment about the US falling apart because of obesity / gluttony. That is going to weigh that country down more than so many other things.

    I do feel sad and sorry for the innocent children who are brainwashed by their Christian parents.

  28. Christopher in Canada 16 Apr 2013, 5:10pm

    America is destroying itself due to a poor public education system. It needs no help from supernatural entities.

  29. More evidence that religious belief is actually a sign of mental illness.

  30. The Kitty Channel 22 Apr 2013, 1:08am

    Fur king idiot. What does his gay daughter think of his carry-on?

  31. To claim that nazi germany fell becuase it had a gay background is nonsense – they sent thousand of gay people to the gas chambers along with Jews and gypsies – it is insulting to the memory of those who died. ALL civilisations in history fall at some point in time – usually because of corrupt leadership or over stretching territorial ambitions. You cannot “turn” people gay you can only accept that not everyone is the same and getting that message across on TV is important.
