LGBT People Are Like ‘Developmentally Disabled’ Children Says WorldNetDaily Columnist

2013/02/09
By

Erik-Rush
In the battle for outrageous comments by the right-wing to back up their hypocrisy, it takes a lot to make a splash. Erik Rush of WorldNetDaily, however, has reached a new level with his piece published Thursday titled “Americans’ Intellectual Indolence.”

In it, he classified anyone who has a differing opinion as “low-information” and “most of these are either laughably dim by nature or pitifully ignorant due to deep indoctrination.” To continue, they are “dedicated liberals evidence increasingly deeper delusion as they continue to advocate for our Marxist in chief. I suppose that this is to be expected, as pathetic and craven though it may be.” Good way to start off a piece, complaining that the majority of the United States disagrees with you.

But, he goes off on a rant, claiming that the Obama administraion is being fiscally irresponsible, ignoring that Congress sets the budget, not the President. Then he claimed special insight into Obamacare, claiming that contrary to reality, Obamacare is an expensive socialized medicine system. If we only were so lucky.


But, the second half of his piece reveals the point of his rage. His rant turns on its heel, and he blames – wait for it – homosexuals. From his article:

One would think this a no-brainer; they need to continue to keep gays out of the BSA.

He then claimed that “Private organizations” have “the right to discriminate all they like” and are under attack “by a militant homosexual lobby that wishes to normalize the popular perception of homosexual behavior.”

I am convinced that many of its “true believers” aren’t even aware they are merely pawns of the radical left, but given the latter’s tenacious modus operandi, otherwise intelligent, conscientious people have nonetheless subscribed to the prevailing propaganda proffered by an agenda-driven press and the homosexual lobby.’

Then, there’s the ongoing discussion and legislation relative to homosexual “marriage.” Like black Klansmen and male sorority sisters, “gay marriage” simply doesn’t exist. Oh, we have monogamous homosexual couples playing house, and certain states issuing marriage licenses to them, but there’s no marriage there. This is because marriage is not a civil union; it’s an ordained one.

A very common argument by those on the right, failing to study their civics or history, where marriage was not an ordained right, but only a civil. The addition of religious overtones to marriage were not even formalized until the Council of Trent in 1563, and before that was a legal status, with few, if any, religious overtones. Same sex marriage was even fully legal throughout Europe until the Theodosian Code which imposed the Christian ideology of the Emperor Theodosius II onto the Byzantine Empire. Same Sex Marriage survived in the Meditteranian region, however, before finally being stomped out from the isolated oasis Siwa in the mid-20th century.

Then he tries to repeat the disproven claim that homosexuals are pedophiles:

There’s much more, of course: The widespread myth that homosexuality is normal rather than aberrant, that it is hard-wired into individuals rather than being a persuasion or choice, that it is not harmful to society, and that it is not harmful to children. One particularly dangerous fallacy advanced by homosexual activists is that pedophiles (such as those who have been charged with molesting Boy Scouts over the years) are not homosexuals.

Myth is something without a scientific base in reality. As homosexuality has a scientific basis this would make his arguments against it the myth. In addition, those who molest children are not homosexual at all.

But since when as a right-winger been interested in science?

To make his point, he closes by comparing those seeking equal rights with children. But not just any children:

These submissions against better judgment are analogous to capitulating to a developmentally disabled child who wants to play with matches simply because they have been persistent in their requests to do so. Obviously, the child does not know better; as the developmentally sound individual present, it is that person’s responsibility to refuse his or her requests, not defer to them.

A person seeking marriage equality, to Mr. Rush, is a developmentally disabled child.

Hatred is a funny thing. When one wishes to oppress a minority, often times the bigots will call them “like children” or worse, that they are out to harm women and children. With this move, it shows that he is little more than another right-wing bigot, using the same old tricks of the trade to try and impose his extremist viewpoint on to the United States. Mr. Rush, and others like him, would like to see nothing less than a Christian Taliban, a religious extremist government which rules by a narrow religious interpretation.

This has been my experience also.

Quoting lwalker270:


Quoting KamWorthy:

I had a family member ( lesbian ) ......and even at 60 years old...she acted like she was 12. But part of this is she was molested at an early age so perhaps there is some correlation, since many homosexuals have experienced molestation. It's just a thought....not saying this is the case for ALL homosexuals...but every gay I have known and currently know, are all somewhat childish, juvenile, and have also been molested before the age of 12. Seems to me there should be some sort of study done to see if there is a correlation.

I think we should do a study too so we can disprove the theory that the majority of homosexuals are childish, juvenile and have been molested.

The homosexuals I know are all college-educated (several holding master's and one has a PhD) and just as mature as any of my straight friends.  I can't speak for them all, but I know that a number of them were not molested -- especially those in my close circle of friends.

For the love of God, why do we have so many ignorant people who are willing to share their views with us!  I can't stand this anymore.  I am Catholic and support gay-marriage.  I want ALL to be included not excluded!!!!!

I think this is ridiculous both df and myself have gay family memebers who were not molested when they were younger. And if that is the case how come im not a lesbian. I was molested by a christian preacher when i was six. I am straight and in a relationship with a man. Get over it i see no reason why lgtb should not be allowed the same civil liberties we straight people have. I bet the other side of this argument is just scared the lgtb community will be more faithful to their partners than the straight couples.......

Your friendly warning about how I should conduct myself in this part of the neighborhood does not pertain to me. I'm not here for friends or a popularity contest. The member in question was showing characteristics of being frustrated and childish, therefore I chose not to engage her further. That simple. I came here initially and conducted myself in a mature, civil manner until I was engaged by those who disagreed with my real life experiences and they became angry and their self-control was compromised. I'm also certain that there are some members who think highly of themselves, perhap because they are "lifers" here on CM and feel they deserve to be seen as one with seniority. I don't look to totum poles, nor for status rank, or how many "friends" one has. I treat everyone the same. I am unimpressed to be in this little pond amongst these little fish. For me, it's purely mindless entertainment.  




Quoting Veni.Vidi.Vici.:

I become frustrated and often succumb to the devil on my shoulder. Krystizzle, not so much. It annoys me when people call her and a few others out and suggest things like she's childish. It simply isn't true. Me, yeah, I stoop. Moreso lately.

FYI if you continue to behave like a know-it-all who is 'only stating my opinions' in nasty ways you will find yourself not being taken seriously. You'll likely get mocked regularly.

We need new people and different perspective in here. I just REALLY dislike when new members come in here finger wagging [figuratively] and stirring the pot. You suggested she was childish. That says more about you than her. = )

Quoting KamWorthy:

No trolling...just sharing obviously something that others don't like. I can do nothing about that. She engaged me first, does that make her a troll or troll food lol? Because she's your CMBFF, probably not. Good Day.
Quoting Veni.Vidi.Vici.:

DearKamWorthy:

Krystizzle has an unusually high threshold for BS and slow thinkers. She's incredibly articulate, hardly sarcastic and generally thoughtful and pleasant.

I'm going to give you two snaps and a circle for your newb efforts to troll this lovely member.


Me, on the other hand, well I'm volatile lately...

Quoting KamWorthy:

Awww, now see....when people like you become frustrated, childish, and lose control, who can't keep it together...I can't debate further, it just doesn't seem fair. I'd love to answer you, but not if my replies fall on cracked ground, seems like a waste. Good Day.
Quoting krysstizzle:

I did read your initial comment, as well as your others. I'd still like to know what your point is. 

I'd be "better equipped to engage you" if I could buy a bundle of high bullshit tolerance, that's for sure.

 I would think they would be too busy at your door!  wanting to know the 150 gay people you know all that have been molested and all that act like 12 year olds!

The funding for a large study just isn't there. I'm not sure why. The criteria exists, but I suspect the gay community does not want to know if in fact some are homosexual do to being molested at a pre- pubescent age. If a scientific study did reveal that there is a correlation, can you imagine the denial, and the cries of "foul" that would come from the LGBT organization?

It is none of their business. Scientist only get a very small sampling of their target research. They also advertise to poor students and often offer them money so yes they get a lot more of people of the target perspective they want to prove. Te rest of us do not want to deal with those research people and keep our lives to ourselves. So yes the results are skewed most often in the favor of the scientist with the claims. That is the reason for peer reviews which often will debunk the claims.

So are you saying that poor students are not worthy, nor do they fit the criteria to be in such a study just because they may be struggling students? Do you think their responses are bought? Do you feel they easily lie for money? Really? Tell me, the scientists that claim there is a homosexual gene, that it is in fact something you are born with, we're those results skewed? Or inconclusive? Or are they concrete based on ones belief and faith in the results?
