Former presidential and senatorial candidate Alan Keyes, who has compared same-sex marriage to nose-picking and claimed that it leads to totalitarian regimes, is back and ready to bestow another beautiful bit of wisdom upon us. In convoluted and pseudo-scientific language, Keyes recently expressed the essential belief that gay sex "is not 'sexual' activity at all."
Writes Keyes on wingnut rag WND:
"In the strict sense of the term, it is not 'sexual' activity at all. The functional difference that distinguishes one sex from the other quite literally has nothing to do with same-sex activity. That activity abstracts from the functionally defined difference in order exclusively to focus on bodily feelings and emotions that are important to the individuals involved, but that are of no consequence, concretely, for the species as a whole. As individuals, some human beings may find this activity intensely gratifying. But considered on the whole, in terms of its consequences, it implies the nonexistence of humanity. The homosexual couple is not engaged in the act of human procreation. Their activity is not haunted by the possibility of human offspring. Because it is, on the whole, of no consequence, homosexual activity involves no natural right – for every claim of natural right arises from respect for the law of nature, which in turn necessarily requires respect for the nature of law."
When will he quit? All signs point to never, but at least his latest statement is filled with laughable pieces of tired, recycled arguments.
