Illinois Lawmaker Says Gays are 'Disordered' and 'Trying to 'Weasel Way Into Acceptability' - AUDIO


Illinois Rep. Jeanne Ives (R) spoke with the Catholic Conference of Illinois in a radio interview and laid out the reasons why she's not going to vote for marriage equality.

Because gays have "disordered relationships" and "they’re trying to weasel their way into acceptability" so they can influence children in schools.

Said Ives:

"They're trying to redefine marriage. It's a completely disordered relationship and when you have a disordered relationship, you don’t ever get order out of that. So I’m more than happy to take a 'no' vote on the issue of homosexual marriage."

She added:

"I'm more than happy to stand up and take a courageous vote here on this issue because it's the right thing to do. Essentially what they’re trying to do is not just redefine marriage, they’re trying to redefine society. They’re trying to weasel their way into acceptability so that they can then start to push their agenda down into the schools, because this gives them some sort of legitimacy. And we can’t allow that to happen. The rights to marriage, it's really a natural right.  It’s the natural right of the child to be with both parents, either in an adoptive nature or in a biological nature. To not have a mother and a father is really a disordered state for a child to grow up in and it really makes that child an object of desire rather than the result of a matrimony."

Meanwhile, Capitol Fax is reporting that marriage equality is still 12 votes shy of having the votes to pass. And a vote could come any day now.

While we're not sure you're going to convince a wingnut like Ives you can still call your lawmakers, Illinoisans. And find out how to do so HERE.

  2. Probably 1000 times more kids lack a 2 parent home in Chicago alone, than all kids in Gay families combined. But then, lots of those are Black people, who do not count as human to her, any more than Gays do.

  4. Ives should do some research on George Wallace so she can see what it is like to be immortal on the wrong side of history. The future will not be kind to Ms Ives and it won't be because of that hairdo.

  8. is my gaydar out of whack or does she look like a distance runner or basketball player?

  9. Yeah, we all know where she got that word "disordered"....from that toad of an ex Nazi who has just resigned.
    I guess the Church has given a voice to the closet bigots and phobes..... well done, followers of Jesus and successor of St. have let slip the dogs of prejudice.

  10. Ives if you're reading this, your homophobia is as clear as that zit on your nose.

  11. I bet I could catalog about two hundred things she does a day that violate the natural order. Starting with that hair.

    I do hope that when she's Governor she enforces the right of children to have two opposite sex parents by requiring that single people marry. Should be fun.

  12. I don't want her acceptance, so get lost. I'm not weaseling my way into anything, I'm DEMANDING equality as I'm expected to pay the same taxes and obey the same laws, I demand the same civil rights. And what's the last fall back for the bigot? THINK OF THE CHILDREN! Well times are changing and you will be recorded as the bigot you are Rep. Ives.

  13. anything i could say about her appearance suggesting that there may be some secret same sex longings in her closet might be seen as stereotyping and reductionist, but tammy baldwin has a more feminine appearance than this beauty. IF she went to college, i hope someone is interviewing her roommates, or the other members of her field hockey team. she had to play field hockey or softball, didn't she?

    and WEASEL my way to acceptability? oh HELL no. dynamite is more like it.

  14. She said these things while speaking to members of the Church of Child Rape. Anyone who can't see the evil behind those eyes is blind.

  15. Hey WE'RE thinking of the children. And they shouldn't be anywhere near the likes of you, Jeanne Ives.

  16. If that isn't a lesbian then I'm not a queen.

  17. @ Bob - You almost had it right. The correct take is, "But those are black people and a politician can't point to them as the reason he opposes gay rights."

    One can reasonable suspect that the black civil rights movement is a major reason why gay rights meets with such resistance. Go to any conservative bulletin board and the complaints about gay rights are based in an expectation of hiring quotas, affirmative action, and cause hearings every time a gay person is fired or gets his feelings hurt on the job.

    You can't convince me that racial desegregation of the military wasn't a major reason for hostility towards the end of discrimination against gay people. That and the fear that we would take over or already have.

  18. Former city councilwoman from Wheaton. So no surprises on any of these attitudes.

  19. If there's a female version of "gay face" SHE'S got it!

  20. It's interesting how many times she mentioned 'disordered' and how she emphasized this label.

    It's really nothing more than projection. SHE is disordered. It's pathological narcissist, psychopaths and sociopaths that speak this way about others. They love to project onto others, strip away their rights, create fear and hysteria, and financially and socially destroy and harm.

    Anyone who advocates for these things, is truly 'disordered' and we have a ton of these human units in government, unfortunately.

  21. Seriously, all joking aside, how are these idiots getting elected? Were politicians always this stupid and we're just now being made aware of it, or are we looking at a whole new level of ignorance?

  22. Actually, a "natural right" would be to allow kids to breed the moment they hit puberty.

    Nice Glamour Shot.

  23. Pedo press reports closeted homophobe distracted by weasels taking over their schools. Irony not her only victim. News of her secrets imminent.

  24. Nothing like a closet-case member of the Church-of-Child-Rape-Cover-Ups trying to impose her self-righteous morality on the rest of society. Laughable.
    (Speaking of laughable... She needs to befriend some gays to give her some hair advice!)

  25. Who are the people that voted for this ugly old cvnt?
