Fearing Themselves

Man does the religious right say some stupid stuff. I mean, this is no surprise, but this most recent bit of inanity is the best comedy gold I've seen in a long time from them.
All pornography is homosexual pornography, because all pornography turns your sexual drive inwards.


Yeah. That's an "astonishingly insightful remark" all right. Just not into what the speaker, Michael Schwartz, probably thinks it is.

By his logic, the Republican party must be full of homosexuals since conservatives are more likely to consume pornography.
Those states that do consume the most porn tend to be more conservative and religious than states with lower levels of consumption, the study finds.


Residents of 27 states that passed laws banning gay marriages boasted 11% more porn subscribers than states that don't explicitly restrict gay marriage.


States where a majority of residents agreed with the statement "I have old-fashioned values about family and marriage," bought 3.6 more subscriptions per thousand people than states where a majority disagreed. A similar difference emerged for the statement "AIDS might be God's punishment for immoral sexual behaviour."
Yep. Real morally upright. People like, Michael Duvall, Paul Stanley, Mark Sanford, John Ensign, and Chip Pickering.

And that's sex scandals from just this year. I think those who protest the loudest have the furthest to fall. After all, the numbers just don't add up. Even when homosexuality is allowed, the majority of people don't find it affects them.
