WND poll: Belying an entire movement's 'we're not anti-gay' rhetoric

by Jeremy Hooper

The hostiles over at WorldNetDaily are tired of keeping their 'mo detestation behind the typical, socially conservative mask. And their tired of confining their referendums to only our marriage rights. Today they are coming out and flat-out admitting what so many of us already know: That they simply don't like LGBT people:

Let's Not Mince Words [WND poll]

And if that we're scary enough, just check out some of the comments that follow the poll:

What do you think of Homosexuality
Posted by he296808 on Nov 23, 2009 19:45

I think we need more consequences like Sodom and Gomorah. God hated it so bad he burned two cities to the ground with them in the cities. Its as evil as it can get - just look at the way they act in public - they try to get our teachers to tell children that its ok when it is not ok. If you saw someone molesting your child - what would you do? These people molest your children from the brain through to the body! What comes out of it? Disease unto death - its a horrible death but it just keeps going!

Just a sexually based addiction
Posted by sodengineer on Nov 23, 2009 20:08

Just as drug addiction is chemically based, homosexuality is a sexually based addiction, spread by homosexual pedophiles preying on boys starved for fatherly affection and nurture.

Disgusting
Posted by bob on Nov 23, 2009 20:24

Queers are an abomination and they should be tried for crimes against nature instead of receiving special protection under the law.
The lewd activities that they engage in are not sex it is disgusting and perverted behavior and serves no useful purpose but to satisfy sick and twisted people.

Hellish Nightmare Trap for Nice People
Posted by CrossEye on Nov 23, 2009 21:11

I have met many homosexuals and have found them to generally be stupid, but nice people. This is especially true of the "christian" homosexuals and bi-sexuals. That is why I always feel so sad for them. It is just as certain as taxes where their attitude about their lusting will lead them. It makes no difference whether they were born that way or not. We have been commanded to abstain from such acts. Nature v. Nurture is just not relevant. They rebelliously choose to pursue a satanic pleasure, usually flipping off God in the process. However, it is within their power to escape the flames. I am always full of joy for the prodigal son or daughter who forever repents and receives God's grace and forgiveness.

A note to all. Support the work of Dr. Warren Throckmorton. He does good work for gays trying to control themselves and takes a lot of abuse from the evil left for it. http://www.drthrockmorton.com/
I hope this tip is Ok M? Sorry if not.

God said it
Posted by ji359772 on Nov 23, 2009 23:00

I'm not going to mince words here, moderator, so let it ride.
God said it, that settles it, and He doesn't care what that turd in the White House or anyone else thinks about it. And neither do I care what the black god says or enacts: it's against God's law and even as imperfect as I am, I can read and understand it with no help from anyone else.
All you Bible denigrators out there can bite me, too: If God isn't God enough to keep His Word in the form He wants so I can understand it, then He isn't my God.
But He can and does and is.
God said it, that settles it. Period. Anyone who disagrees can take it up with Him- but they won't be saying much on their way to hell.
As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord God.
Shy III

And there are nine pages of comments just like that. All trying as hard as they can to turn the rhetorical culture war into a literal one.

We won't say "be afraid." We will say, "be cautious." With what we see on a daily basis, it would be negligent to not.

Your thoughts

Any survey question where "Other" is the strongest response you can give for or against a position drips in bias.

Nevermind the fact this appeared on WND, a third-grader could instantly spot the rhetorical slant the phrasing of each possible response.

Any honest student of the Bible couldn't call the condemnation of Homosexuality clear.
I wish Christians knew more of the Scripture the apparantly hold dear. That would solve a lo of problems.

Posted by: Davey | Nov 24, 2009 12:59:30 PM

I really wish that people like them understood that NOT EVERYONE BELIEVE IN THEIR RELIGION.

Posted by: Yuki | Nov 24, 2009 1:00:48 PM

I hope their gawd strikes them all dead. Hateful bunch of bigots.

Posted by: Mykelb | Nov 24, 2009 1:15:02 PM

I agree that the Bible condemns homosexuality. However, I believe that, while inspired by a deep faith in God, it was written by men who weren't perfect.

"God said it. That settles it." No, it doesn't.

Posted by: KZ | Nov 24, 2009 1:50:09 PM

I love the number of votes 'I prefer not to think about it' got. Says everything, doesn't it?

Posted by: Baron Scarpia | Nov 24, 2009 1:59:58 PM

Yuki -

they do understand that not everyone is a believer. But they don't care.

Posted by: Baron Scarpia | Nov 24, 2009 2:00:32 PM

This is the kind of cr@p that makes me actually wish there was a "rapture" . . .so the "left behind" can be LEFT ALONE for a change.

Posted by: Jon | Nov 24, 2009 2:14:54 PM

they "prefer not to think about it" but it seems they are thinking about it more than I do!

Posted by: keltic | Nov 24, 2009 2:20:42 PM

It's up to 14 pages now, and if you won't say it, I will.

BE AFRAID.

Be ready to protect yourself, because if there's one thing we've learned, it's that straight folks won't.

Some of the fiercest warriors in history were gay (or at least bisexual.) I'm afraid that things may very well comes down to a fight - but I'm not afraid of ability *to* fight.

The third quote is classic. A dash of religious bigotry mixed with a pinch of racism. Classic right-wing nutjob.

Posted by: TommyOC | Nov 24, 2009 3:24:42 PM

Ya, know, I guess I've been doing this gay thing wrong for all these years. I've never been molested, nor have I ever molested someone. I don't engage in drug crazed orgies. I'm nice, but not stupid. It's so odd that these Christians know more about my "lifestyle" than I do...and it's helluva lot more exciting than my life!

Posted by: Bearchewtoy75 | Nov 24, 2009 6:25:38 PM

Odd, the fellow recommending Dr Throckmorton is stating it as it is. But the neo-con/fundie right are the ones giving Throckmorton hell these days. First it was Peter LaBarbera who somewhat sneeringly called Throckmorton's blog "Switzerland" for the equinamity that characterized the blog; and now it has been arch-homophobe Scott Lively who has used the PFOX blog [see: http://pfox-exgays.blogspot.com/2009/11/warren-throckmorton-grove-city-college.html ] to say Dr Throckmorton has gone over to the "Dark Side" for the professor's speech against the Ugandan conference and also against Lively's "Pink Swastika."

Yea, I found that interesting too, Lynn. I meant to send it to Warren -- thanks for reminding me.

Matt: 22 pages this morning. What keeps them from going out and simply killing a fag for Jesus?

Posted by: keltic | Nov 25, 2009 9:53:04 AM

Ok, I just went through a few more pages on their site. It's just disgusting, not to mention misinformed, and just plain sad on so many levels.

I can't believe that there as so many people in this day and age who think most of us are pedophiles and have all this sex! I can't even begin to think how I'd get anything done if I were having that much sex and doing that many drugs!

It's very unfortunate that those types of "Christians" get lumped in together with the ones who don't hate and live and let live. My parents and my brother are fairly devout Christians and they would NEVER stoop to the level that these people have.

I've never considered myself to be a "militant homosexual" but after reading these, I think I may be on my way!

Posted by: Bearchewtoy75 | Nov 25, 2009 11:29:42 AM

Bearchewtoy, for the past year I've been wondering why all the rest of the christians who get lumped in with these fundies aren't speaking up to defend us and other targets of the fundie right. I can only conclude that on some level they agree with the fundies. Either that, or they are being bullied into silence. at this point in my life, I have little use and less patience for most christians.
