Skip to comments.Pop singer Moby: Make my kid 'gay' (also rips DeLay, Coulter, Hannity as 'immoral' right-wingers)

Pop star Moby, known for his political statements as well as his music, says he'd do everything he could to make his future child homosexual should the singer ever have a family.
He's also blasting conservatives Tom DeLay, Ann Coulter, Sean Hannity and Newt Gingrich as "amoral/immoral" right wingers.
In an interview with Planet Out, a publication geared toward homosexuals, the musician, who is not "gay," was lamenting so-called homophobia in society when he suggested his future child should be raised to be a homosexual.
"As a matter of fact, I was talking to my friend Laura, who sings on [my latest] record, and we're both getting to the point where we want to start families," Moby said. "We're convinced that if we have children, we're going to do everything in our power to make them gay. Like maybe drinking a lot of extra soy milk while she's pregnant, or anything that would work to make that happen. I'd just rather have a really sharp, interesting, smart gay son than some big dumb hetero meathead."
On Moby's website, he also said he wonders why Christians in general are so "worked up" about homosexuality.
"I ask this because Christ, at least in the New Testament that I have, never mentioned homosexuality, so we thus don't know what Christ might have thought about homosexuality. Why is the church so up in arms about an issue that Christ never seemed to have mentioned? And why does the church so routinely gloss over so many of the issues that Christ actually did talk about? It just makes no sense to me."
Moby, who once called President Bush a "big, fat f---ing liar" at a New York event hosted by the political organization MoveOn.org, is now taking on well-known conservatives in his online diary.
In his entry yesterday, Moby writes:
"I hope that Tom DeLay sticks around for a long time.
"He's such a profound and continuing source of embarrassment for the right-wing in America that his resignation or indictment would actually work to the detriment of the left-wing in the states.
"The progressive movement needs more crazy and amoral/immoral right-wing politicians and pundits like Tom DeLay and Newt Gingrich and Ann Coulter and Sean Hannity.
"Seeing as the progressive movement [is], sadly, not so good at self-promotion, the progressives have to rely on crazy right-wingers like DeLay and Coulter to drive people away from the Republican Party and into the ranks of the Democrats."
Moby, whose real name is Richard Melville Hall, traces his ancestry back to Herman Melville, author of the classic whale epic "Moby Dick."
That's just what this idiot and his friends need to keep thinking!
That should be no problem as long as his child listens to his music.
Yeah, but will all this help Moby's lame, boring, and very gay music?
Sorry Moby. My watch says 16 minutes.
No, they are just fine at it, the problem is no one likes their message. And they're NOT progressive, they're divergent.
And this idiots remarks matter because..... ?
That pic of him is a very good representation of him being out of this world.
i thought it was genetics that determined one's sexuality... how on earth could he "make" his child gay if he/she were not born that way? haha!
Well, that should be verrrry interesting.
This may well go over like a lead balloon to the gay community. According to most gays, you are born that way not made that way. Let's hope Moby stepped in it, LOL.
This is some really sick stuff.
I certainly hope he is unable to breed.
SO if his kids are homos they won't have any children and his blood will be removed from the gene pool. I say go for.
yeah, sound like a pedophile's dream.......
times like this I respect Eminem just a bit since he despises Moby, at least Eminem whines with some humour
Spoken like someone who has no kids and would probably change his tune regarding his demented poitical views if he actually were a father.
Well, Melville got his other name right.
Make his child gay? Why not just teach them to snort, drink heavily, and inject themselves with live viruses too? This freak apparently wants to worst for any child he might have, including an early death. I pray Moby is sterile, and that he never gets near fatherhood....ever.
When I have kids I am going to raise them Amish. It should be cheaper, and I won't have to fight them for playstation time.
Jeeze, Moby makes Cher sound almost smart.
actually Christ did say "love the sinner more" something about sinners need more love to guide them back onto the path and I believe that is what many Christians believe, you should love gays, not hate them but strive to put them back on the path of righteousness, which is why you have all these Christian groups that help "gay" men get back to straight
however I tend to agree it is an innate thing, why especially when it could result in your death or imprisonment not too long ago and still in some cultures would you pursue a gay lifestyle - the "gay" men who are converted back to straight are just suppressing their impulse, good thing? bad thing? well look at pedophiles, oh that they could suppress their impulses
then again adultery is punishable by death in parts of the Muslim world and that doesn't stop people from engaging in that behaviour either......
