    LOL. So in order to be gay-friendly you need to sleep with gay people now?

    Where do they get these ideas from? Do they ever actually think before speaking? :-D

  2. I’m pleased to inform you that Alan Keyes is a nitwit who is not taken seriously by any respectable person in the US. Even his lesbian daughter has called him out for his absurd pronouncements. The world should view him as a radio entertainer whose audience are in-bred country folk whose sisters are also their mothers.

      Lets not go down that route. comment on his comments not his race!

    “… he claims that straight boy scouts will be accused of “bigotry”, if they refuse the “sexual advances” of gay children.”

    And what does he call it if a straight child refuses the sexual advances of an opposite-sex child? Or is that not allowed?

    “Growing up” includes learning to respect others, including their differences, their interests and their natural desires, and to live responsibly.

    But I doubt that his religioin teaches him that.

      I guess he is the sort who also does not tolerate refusals from women he approaches. Obviously the word “no” is not one he thinks anyone can, or should, use.

      1. “And what does he call it if a straight child refuses the sexual advances of an opposite-sex child? Or is that not allowed?”

        Apparently he thinks straight people are chaste, asexualized people, almost eunuchs who don’t have a sexuality and it’s only us LGBT people who hit on other people.

    As far as hedonism goes – the pursuit of sensual pleasure, I suppose – isn’t that the whole idea behind his desire to get into the heaven that he believes in? To enjoy walking on streets of gold, hearing the angels play their harps, eating the best food and not getting fat (fundamentalists tend to be obese – especially the American variety) and not having to work.

    So many of our choices really boil down to our finding some sensual pleasure.

    The Inspector General has no objection to gay scouts, but gay scout leaders ? No. It would worry the parents…

    1. That There Other David 3 May 2013, 8:54pm

      They ought to be more worried leaving their kids with preachers.

      1. Inspector General 3 May 2013, 9:18pm

        Well yes, gay preachers…

        1. That There Other David 3 May 2013, 11:34pm

          Would you trust your eight year old daughter to be alone with one? I certainly wouldn’t.

        2. No, just preachers in general. They come with all sizes and colors, sexual abuser heterosexual, sexual abuser closeted homosexual, sexual abuser openly homosexual, you choose it.

          1. morality guardian 4 May 2013, 10:59am

            Almost all church abuse is male adult on male child, ergo homosexual paedophilia, as expected!

          2. That There Other David 4 May 2013, 11:19am

            It’s not “almost all” at all. Even amongst the Catholic Church 1 in 5 cases were male priests abusing young girls. In other churches where the likelihood of closet gays being forced to enter the priesthood thanks to celibacy requirements that figure will most likely be closer to an even split. Unfortunately we don’t have the collated crime statistics for those organisations as we do for the RCC.

            However, “almost all” is false. For you to suggest that is dismissing the situation of girls who have suffered and are suffering terrible sexual abuse and rape at the hands of people their parents are conditioned to trust. Shame on you.

  7. I have a reminder for Mr. Keyes.
    Your parents weren’t allowed to sit in the front of the bus in the past.
    I wonder if there were many gay people opposing the Civil rights back then.

    1. The same way white people believed it was God’s will that the black people should be brought chained from Africa to the Americas to be enslaved and deprived of their basic human rights of liberty and freedom as if they were cattle. If God ordered any horror and atrocity in history and in the world can be done, and you can still do it with proud, be it burning and skinning women alive, enslaving and forcing to forced work native African and American people and discriminating and persecuting gay people.

      “Lasciate ogne speranza, voi ch’intrate” or in English “Abandon all hope, ye who enter here”, the real motto of the Christianity

  8. Alan Keyes is a “columnist” only by courtesy — what he is is a well-known screwball who is so unpopular that he lost a race against Barack Obama for Senator from Illinois by 70%-30%, which if I’m not mistaken is the largest margin ever.

  9. You know, the lunatic ramblings of the bigots are so repetitive and tiresome that they even already stopped making sense and don’t even qualify as grammatical constructions with a meaning anymore. All I hear now is blah blah blah homosexuals blah blah blah God blah blah blah I am angry blah blah blah. If you taught a parrot some words or gave a typewriter to a monkey they could construct an anti-gay ranting with as much sense and logic as the rantings of Alan Keyes and such other nutjobs.

  10. The people that make these comments are either as dumb as a pile of dog shit or they have some sort of hidden agenda. Any body with half a brain wouldn’t think like this let alone say it out loud.

  11. Barry William Teske 4 May 2013, 6:24am

    And the “Top 100 ‘God’s Terrorists’ of the last 100 Years” are…
    Submit your candidates and hope God cleans up its ‘flock’ soon.
    My 2nd choice is anyone who owns a gun in the name of ‘self defence’.
    My 1st choice is the US of A’s NRA.
    Crime stats are up.
    Hate and intolerance are crimes.

  12. He seems to have confused the BSA with the Catholic Church.

  13. . Keith when I was in the closet I used to do anything to read about gay people it was a positive experience. One day you will address your need to abuse gay people and realise that the opposite to love is not hate its indifference. You’re displaying typical playground behaviour attacking people you deep down want to be with.

    Sort it out mate

    1. morality guardian 4 May 2013, 10:06am

      Funny thing about homosexuality. It’s practitioners commonly hide their preferred behaviours and attractions even though it is not unlawful. This is unheard of in the hetero -normal community. Perhaps it is the shame of immoral and socially dangerous behaviour?

      1. In society hetrosexual behaviour is expressed as the norm. It not normal it’s just more common. Gay people have to deal with the types like yourself and some people succumb to the constant negativity. True hetrosexual people are completely indifferent to homosexuals. They are not scared or threatened as they know what they like. The people who berate gay people are the ones who hide their homosexual behaviour. Sound familiar?

        1. morality guardian 4 May 2013, 10:48am

          I don’t berate people , I berate behaviour. I also berate inctuous behaviour, sc;;;at behaviour and anything tat is perverted nd disgusting.
          Do you think you could try to understand the difference between condemning disgusting acts and hating people themselves or does it suit your agenda not to understand?

        2. How is love disgusting? It seems your mind eye is full of rectums poo and penisis. I pity you

          1. morality guardian 4 May 2013, 2:20pm

            How is love disgusting you ask?
            When it includes consensual adult incest, sc–at, same sex relations, animals and any other immoral perversion

      2. First we are flaunting it then we are hiding it. Make up your mind.

  14. Keith I love you and forgive yourl behaviour

  15. I have been “not succumbing” to the advances of women all my life. No one has ever called me a bigot.

    How did he get this into his head?

    I wonder how many times his advances have been turned down, quite a lot I would imagine.
