Well, hopefully he's just 'anti-gay until graduation'

by Jeremy Hooper

Want to know what the next generation of gay foes will look and sound like? Well, if this commentary from Louisiana State University student Michael Denton is any indication, they will look like this...

Picture 15-27

...and sound exactly like the message-sticking, talking points-parroting, "pro-family" opposition that we've come to know and tolerate. Go here to read Denton's piece:

America needs to stand against homosexuality [Daily Reveille]

So what "pro-family" lines has Denton bought (hook, sinker, and all)? Well...

Checks-2

Ya know, you've got to give our militant opposition credit. They've been able to indoctrinate and recruit America's youth in ways like no other. If only they weren't working to have us viewed as demonic, we might actually respect their ability to get so far with so little rational basis!

As for you, Mr. Denton: Please remember that anti-gay is a choice. Through faith in the reality of the world, you too can be set free.

Your thoughts

I wouldn't be surprised if this guy is gay himself. It seems those that speak the loudest against us have something to hide.

Perhaps he is perceived by others as being gay and is using the article as a way to reinforce the belief to himself and others that he is straight.

You know, I've noticed something recently.....

the more anti-gay and kooky these guys are getting, the queenier they look?

This guy, Michael Glatze, that Billy Idol on crack guy, etc

I didn't know that Matthew Broderick and Bill Gates had a love child . . .

I left quite the reply for this young man. Heh heh.

I think you missed one:

Playing the martyr by trying to claim that gays are trying to restrict his free speech (and that of all those who agree with him).

"I do not buy the homosexual argument that homosexuality and homosexual acts are the essence of homosexuality."

This was not written by Denton, but by a commenter on his article. Please read over it several times—it may be the dumbest thing I've ever read.

Also, I eagerly await Mr. Denton's next essay concerning the grave threat that the disorder of masturbation poses to our country.

Oh, well DCN, you simpleton -- don't you know the essence of homosexuality is "the ability to do a flawless Carol Channing impersonation while wearing a lovely pink chiffon number that you designed out of Satan's pubic hair?" Duh! It's in chapter 2 of the handbook, right before the part about how gay lives aren't really about the gays themselves, but rather all the poor, innocent conservative Christians that we must dedicate our lives to attacking.

Really, though, my biggest problem with the article is that it's incredibly boring and lacks a smidgen of original thought—like he just cobbled together paragraphs from random Dobson screeds. At least Fred Phelps has a sense of humor.

Posted by: DCN | Sep 12, 2007 7:46:57 PM

Agreed. But then again, all any of them do is parrot the exact same talking points over and over again, so who's really to say his are any worse?

Beautiful! Here's another one out of New Mexico.
