  1. For “christian” read “duplicitous cherry-picking ignorant tool”.

  2. So, it’s destroyed every civilisation ever then. Twonk

    1. Depending on how one views the rise and fall of civilisations in history (a subject I would suggest Ken “oh please” Hutcherson has but a scant knowledge of), it could just as easily be argued that heterosexuality/the family/masculinity has destroyed every civilisation it/they have been touched by.

      Why do the pig-ignorant views of these idiots from Alabama even make news over here?

  3. Erm. it were them, albeit fascistic but homo ‘enforced’ Spartans who saved the ancient world from the Persians at Thermopylae; allowing the albeit mysoginistic and sort of gay patriarchal, ancient athenians to finish the job.
    It was Christianity that destroyed many a gay accepting society; although there were early chritian gay ‘socs’ in the catacombs below Rome before the Catholics were set up in AD 325. Also many a gay favoring christian sect up to the 11th C AD.
    It was also christainity that suppresed the knowledge of the ancient middle east, esp greeks etc across Europe and the muslims who brought it in via Moorish Spain -and the first experiment at secularism (Al Rosa). Gone down hill though recently sadly (in both cases)

    1. The foundation of our western civilisation is built upon the graeco-roman model, from politics to science, from philosophy to art and architecture. As a society we aspire to their ideals and achievements, and yet one fundamental aspect of this model has almost all but been eradicated from the collective conscience, “the love that not dare speak its name”.
      Christianity must of course take much of the blame for this over the years but so too must Hollywood. Spartan society was unique in many ways, none more so than that it was predominantly homosexual. And yet in the movie 300, the historical truth of this fundamental aspect of what was probably considered to be the greatest army in the ancient world was distorted so as not to offend heterosexual sensibilities. Interestingly enough, the Spartans were decisively defeated by the Thebans, led by the Sacred Band, a group of 150 male couples (lovers).

      1. I am not aware of any movie portraying the Scared Band but no doubt they will be portrayed as raging red blooded heterosexuals. The Thebans were defeated by the Macedonians under Philip II (who also had male lovers) and was supposedly assassinated by one of them. Philip in turn was succeeded by his son Alexander the Great, probably considered to be the greatest conqueror in history. And yet in the movie, Alexander, his sexuality is almost all but overlooked. Had Alexander been a raging heterosexual, the film would no doubt have been classified as soft porn. And then there is the movie Troy and another great historical distortion. Instead of portraying Patroclus as the lover of Achilles (considered to be the greatest warrior in the ancient world), Achilles and Patroclus are depicted as cousins (could Hollywood be promoting incest?).

        1. All civilisations/societies rise and fall. That is historical fact. Religion will always view us as the enemy, treat us with contempt and and blame us for the ills in society. However, if we are to ever be considered truly equal within secular society, Hollywood has to stop heterosexualising history.

          1. Very well said jake – as a fan of Mary Renaults histororical novels in my teens I have been continually disgusted by the rewriting of these histories that we get foisted off on us.

            On that note, one of the more recently blatant isntances that annoyed the hell out fo me is the BBC Children’s Lenonardo crap, where he is depicted as falling in love with girl. Its nothing short of indoctrination and brainwashing by a conservative and religiously infested and morally bankrupt industry.

    Ok Hutcherson. Explain why 15 countries have introduced equal marriage? Name one that has been destroyed out of existence. Stupidly ignorant religious twat.

    Religion = loons for the most part.

    1. The only civilisations currently destroying themselves are the muslim ones. How does he explain that? All of them virulently anti gay.

      The most successful economies in the world are virtually all pro-gay or at the very least neutral. (Excluding Russia)

      If you allow for the amount of democracy in a country that explains Russia.

      He is obviously very ignorant, spouting wishes instead of facts.

  5. Does anyone know his crazy pill dealer? I think they need to adjust the dosage.

    1. Every civilization that has been touched by religion has failed.

    oooooh yeah – well known that the lost kingdom of Atlantis was only lost because of all the bumming

    1. Sister Mary Clarence 17 May 2013, 1:41pm

      ohh and don’t get me started on the Incas

  7. I’d say that willful ignorance is the greater threat to civilization, and this man proves my case.

  8. Dear Mr Hutcherson

    Ken Hutcherson is obviously an old fashioned fundamentalist gay basher. Just close your mouth and stop the verbal diarrhea.

  10. there really are two kinds of human beings – those who have evolved beyond organised faiths and superstitions – and people like this full of ignorance and hate – all because they are too scared and foolish enough to trust in the fable teachings that are outdated and dangerous –

  11. Exactly which civilisations have been destroyed by homosexuality? This ignorant fool obviously doesn’ know anything about history. But then he believes in an imaginary deity who lives in the sky, so it should come as no surprise that the rest of his world view should also be fictional.

  12. Really ? Netherlands, Sweden, Norway and Denmark, among others, seem to disagree.

  13. Homosexuality destroying civilizations.

    What ???

    Hutchinson is pulling his ideas out of thin air, and he doesn’t feel the need to support his sweeping generalizations with an iota of evidence.

    He needs to learn that there is light and guidance in secularism.

  14. It is religion which has destroyed everything it comes into contact with. The Empires of the word based on religion destroying ancient civilizations and cultures. Without religion this world would be a far better place.

  15. Actually, I would say that religion does a pretty good job of that.

    People like this are totally ignorant. They have always been ignorant. Have you ever tried have a conversation with ’em? Don’t bother. They know as much about history as they know about the religions they supposedly support. Little to nothing.

    1. Midnighter 17 May 2013, 1:42pm

      Same experience here. This is in in large part due to the fact that they are regularly “trained” to answer critics, with no independant critical thought required. I had a mum come round with a young lad just recently who was asking homeowners to put a question to the kid so he could tritely spout off some appropriate response from a script. As if the meaning of life could be solved by using the same tactics as a washing machine technical support line.

      Religious “answers” are the junk food of the intellect: convenient and satisfying for the lazy, and full of harmful crap.

  17. Canada, the U.K, New Zealand, Denmark, Brazil, Argentina have all not imploded on themselves have they, what a freaking idiot.

  18. Well i’m impressed no one comment mentioned his skin colour.

    Well done guys!

    btw I can guarantee he likes dick.

    1. you did………….

    How can Ken Hutcherson even live in society today. Not only is he wrong but obtuse. It just goes to show you that when you believe in imaginary beings that supposedly wrote some Iron Age book, you will always get it wrong.

  20. “Your defense of homosexuality is without merit because it has destroyed every civilization it has touched and that is shameful.” [citation needed]

  21. “Oh please, as we say in Alabama, do you think I fell off the turnip truck to believe such a ludicrous statement? Sir I may have been born at night, but not last night.”

    Actually Ken, it’s the rest of your semi-coherent rant that makes us believe you fell off a turnip truck yesterday. Once punters start godbotting (using bible verses in place of any empirical evidence) I usually take it as read that they’ve parted company with reality somewhere down the line.
    When you quote the bible, you don’t believe just one ludicrous statement, you believe a whole stack of them – 3 inches thick printed on thin crackly paper.

    Yet again, they reverse their own behaviour. It is not who people are that destroys civilisations it is without doubt the religious who do.

    They judge, they promote the hate and violence and through-out history all evidence shows where religion conflicts civilisations suffer as a result.

    Why do these people spread lies to hide their own actions? It’s weak, it’s feeble and it’s only done to stifle a progressive society.

  23. Bet this guy likes to snort cocaine off erect penises in public bathrooms…and while there is nothing wrong with that, he should be out, loud and proud about it, rather than focusing his self loathing on others…

  24. The only “civilisation” it has “touched” has been the human civilisation, and yet here we are, 7 billion of us and growing rapidly. Ignorant moron.

    Incorrect. The Netherlands legalized ssm in 2001 and they’re living it up. On the other hand, countries in Africa where’s it’s illegal are full of starving children, corrupt government and low-life expectancy. What do you make of that you b@st@rd? Come on, shape up!

  26. Homosexuality destroyed Rome, right?

    Oh well actually no. If you want to look at it, the Roman Republic accepted same sex activity routinely and then it became the Roman Empire, founded by Caesar who was said to be every woman’s husband and every man’s wife, If you really want to look at it, the empire fell AFTER it rejected homosexuality and it was on the rise when it freely accepted it (though it was not an enlightened acceptance to be honest).

  27. Homosexuality hasn’t destroyed this civilisation, and last I checked, straight couples are the ones overpopulating the Earth with babies left, right and centre (not to mention gay couples adopt their unwanted children – one could say this balances everything). Irony much.

  28. He is pandering to the far right “white” crowd. And he can provide no cogent explanation as to “how” homosexuals do this, just like he can provide no salient examples about how being gay is a choice! He thinks all he has to do is “speak it” and it turns into truth…

  29. Hutcherson’s demonstration of ‘love’ in his comments is shameful. His attitude disgusts me :/
