    I hate when people criticize what Andy chooses to post, but I don’t see the point of posting the idiotic views of idiots. When was Keyes last relevant? Right around never? And I’ve never even heard of Sam Solomon. Stupid people will always say stupid things.

    Given the pull quote, I have to admit I kinda agree with his sentiment.

    The problem is that he’s the one I’d point it at. He’s the one going down the road of satisfying his personal predilection and relationships while sacrificing the common good of the country by denying equality. He’s the one destroying the elementary institution of family by which civilization is sustained by tearing apart the families of those who are gay. He is derelict in his public duty and abandoning his obligation as a human being. He has no regard for the natural rights of human beings and is the archetype of all crimes against humanity and this faction he is a part of is committed to perpetuating this crime against the American people.

    what does that even mean to “not stand the thought of homosexuality”?

    does that mean that when he thinks of it the blood leaves his head and goes somewhere else and gets dizzy or something?

    The nutiest of the nutiest on full display here on Towleroad. Perhaps they deserve a place in the homophobic bigot’s version of “Ripley’s Believe It or Not”.

    @Paul R. – I understand why you feel that way. It gets exhausting and draining to see the ignorance some conservative spouts every. single. day.

    I just think the constant reminders are important. I’m worried some of us might forget what these ignorant, homophobic, batshit crazies really think when the election year comes and they magically put on their happy accepting faces in 2014.

    “If he wants to be Nigerian or Ugandan then let him move there.”

    No, Woodroad34, I think he wants to be a Right-wing Tea Party Conservative Republican. No, he doesn’t look like you’re average right-wing nut, but he is. Now, should he move to Texas where Congressman Gomhert comes from? Congressman Gomhert says that marriage equality for Gays will lead to sex with animals–in the USA, I guess?

  7. Jim Elliott says

    Why do these folks keep saying marriage is required to “sustain civilization”. People were having kids long before marriage existed (as either a civil or religious entity) and are continuing today (in large numbers) to have kids outside marriage.

    Alan Keyes, one of the original Tea Baggers. I am not surprised by any of this nonsense. He disowned his daughter after she came out. This is just his ploy to regain some spotlight. Can you imagine the amount of crazy that would be discussed between him, Congressman Gomhert, and Ben Carson? They are in a three way race for dumb f… of the week.

  9. Taylor says

    For someone who “can’t stand the thought of homosexuality”…I’m guessing he thinks about it a whole lot more than he wishes that he did.

  10. Tim says

    Keyes contradicts himself throughou his entire Skype video, but especially when he says (about Portman and other Gov’t officials switching their views) – “your job is to take account of the common good.” But, didn’t he say in the beginning of his sensless “made-up-as-he-went-along” tirade that “God made people who say they’re homosexual.” I guess my question is: what are homosexuals, then? Not common or good?

    Also – how does one “abondon” their obligation in public duty when they’re looking out for the “common good” of equal rights for EVERYONE? #provesmyabovepoint

    I question why this story even made it onto anyone’s radar?

    Moving on….

    Said it once and I’ll say it again..whatever we think of Rob Portman,at least he is standing behind his son.
    Alan Keyes disowned his own daughter when she came out,as did the congressman in Arizona as have many parents when their child comes out.
    And they are held up as “role models” by the religious reich.

  12. FrankC says

    The right wing seems to specialize in making
    fallacious arguments.This clip is full of
    fallacies. I have come to the conclusion
    that kind of mindless, bombastic rhetoric
    reveals conservatism as a not so clever
    form of fraud.

  13. FrankC says

    Ben Carson is out to sell books- and getting
    your name in the internet and on cable news
    is a great way to do it. But at what cost
    Dr. Carson?

  14. andrew says

    I am not a guy who sees most of our opponents as closeted homosexuals, BUT, if your gaydar doesn’t strongly indicate that Keyes is a homosexual then it must be old, broken, malfunctioning and UNPLUGGED!

  15. David Hearne says

    Andrew- I lot of black men who are trying to present themselves as intellectuals come off affected. Henry Louis Gates for example.

    White trash trying to convince you otherwise tend to do their impression of Professor Kingsfield. Except Scalia, who sounds like he will end every sentence with “Jah wann pepparoni wit that?”

  16. Jean-Jacques Burlamaqui says

    Same-sex marriage intrudes upon the Liberty of a child to know his biological parents and should NOT be promoted in the United States where we are fundamentally based upon protecting Liberty of ALL Americans.

  17. Bryan says

    “… sacrifices the common good of the country, including the elementary institution by which civilization is sustained…”

    I find it depressing that LGBTQ people are content to let such screamingly bogus arguments go by with no attempt to refute them. Inasmuch as we seem to prefer to hurl ad hominem attacks at idiots like Keyes rather than demolish their pathetic arguments, we really are more like him than not.

    Really, kids… Keyes arguments are so fraught with unsupported assumptions and logical fallacies that they could be used to teach fifth graders how not to debate. But do we demolish them? No, we just mill around screaming “homophobe!”

    The man is a transparent fraud. It’s beyond lazy to be content with merely insulting him.

  18. says

    Frankly, Keyes is correct. Homosexuality is a perversion and an abomination to the Lord. It is a crime against humanity as it destroys morality and allows perversion to flourish.

    There is nothing “normal” about being queer. No one is born “queer” or gay, that is a lie. Homosexuality is the person giving themselves over to their sexual desires and lust. That is the plain truth.

    We are praying that people break the bondage of homosexuality. We love homosexuals and lesbians, but we have to be truthful here. Homosexuality is not worse than masturbation, etc. It is all sin. We love the sinner, not the sin.

    Please get saved and take the issue of homosexuality to the Lord, he will help you deal with it.

    God bless.

    @Rapture Forums: Take your Sunday School myths based on that collection of contradictions, lies, mostly made up bloody history and the vile morality taught by yahweh, the tribal god of the Ancient Israelites that is called the bible and try to sell it to those who believe that mythology is true.

  20. GRivera says

    GET OVER YOURSELF MR. GOD-PREACH! If your god is so powerful where is he? And he, according to you forgive you for living on this sinful planet! NOT EVERYONE WANTS TO LIVE LIKE YOU!

    Get over your self. And to all you religious gays: get over it – there is no god. Only in your head.

  21. jamal49 says

    Steve, Alan Keyes adopted the young woman who once was his daughter and who Keyes publicly rejected and privately disowned. Alan Keyes surely has ice water coursing through his veins.

    Sometimes, I wonder if some of these morons ever play back recordings of their comments. The complete stupidity of some of their arguments are funnier than “Laugh IN”.
