Posted on 05/03/2008 10:58:36 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
Rioting lesbians have stormed a speech by "Born Gay Hoax" author Ryan Sorba on the campus of Smith College in Massachusetts, shutting down his address, according to two major pro-family organizations, Americans for Truth and Mass Resistance.
"Beware lesbians with frying pans (if you care about free speech)," AFT said in his announcement. "Lesbian activists at Smith College just couldn't stand by and let a young critic explain his views about the supposed innateness of homosexuality so they stormed Ryan Sorba's speech on the 'Born Gay Hoax' and forced him to end it prematurely."
"Thus they decided for everyone in the room supporters, foes, the curious and the undecided whether Sorba's arguments would be heard. Stalin would be proud," said AFT's Peter LaBarbera.
"Brian Camenker, Amy Contrada and the dedicated folks at MassResistance.org have captured the totalitarian episode on film for the world to see. Kudos to MassResistance for once again chronicling the anti-democratic antics of the 'gay' Left for the record. It is absolutely shameful that Smith College and Massachusetts authorities would allow Sorbas First Amendment rights to be neutralized in of all places the academy, which is supposed to be a place where opposing ideas can be debated freely," he said.
President Carol Christ noted in a memo "to the Smith Community" after the attack that "on a pragmatic level, after about 10 minutes the speaker could not be heard" and suggested a strategy to defeat such statements that homosexuality is not innate.
"When faced with the visit of a controversial speaker, our challenge as a community is to reaffirm our commitment to teaching and learning. Hearing the views of someone with whom you disagree affords the opportunity to sharpen one's own counterarguments, displaying the weaknesses in their reasoning or evidence," she wrote.

That had to be one ugly riot.
Our rights to freedom of speech are being systematicly destroyed by liberals.
Once again the open minded, peaceful, left demonstrates its true nature.
Good name for a rock band!
If people are “born gay” that would mean that there is a “gay gene” that has yet to be identified. Should this ever be identified, would gays really want that information to be let out given pre-natal testing and the easy availability of abortion “services?”
Are there any pictures? :)
“Lesbians riot at Smith College”
Can’t be the first time, won’t be the last
Nancy Reagan went to Smith, before it went for comfortable shoes....
There is a joke about Northampton and changing litebulbs, but I will pass....
This just shows the "Pink Hand" for the fascist, cretinous, gang of thugs and villains that they are.
Hmmm, one of these could be the next president.
Some images and videos at link below.
If abortion on demand is going to remain the law then that information should be available to all prospective parents.
Maybe we can take up a collection and use that to send the “girls” to Denver in August. I’m sure they’d fit right in.
Is the low class behavior genetic or environmental?
I repled that if there was genetic proof then there could be genetic testing, and I'd welcome you and everyone else to the Pro-Life side. That freaked her out and she left me alone. I'm guessing that she wasn't pro-life at the time, but I gave her something to think about.
Astounding link contents, to say the least.
I wonder how things would have turned out if the speaker were sponsored under a different political platform, or no political platform.
Does being or acting lesbian automatically compel one to also act like a leftist looney?
My abortion thread tagline:
"Are your parents Pro-Choice? I guess you got lucky! Is your spouse? Your doctor?"
A little harsh but it's something to think about regarding people who might make life or death decisions for you.
Homosexuals need to keep in mind, however, that the good news of the gospel is not about how God despises same-sex sexual relationships. In fact, 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 indicates that certain members of that church had been slaves to such relationships but had been cleansed in Jesus' name. So these former homosexuals had evidently repented and accepted God's grace to straighten their lives out.
There IS a low class gene, not one for homosexuality.
The real story in my opinion is how useless and craven the administrators of these colleges are. It really torques my jaws, the way they allow demented thugs to trample other peoples right to speak and be heard. American universities are becoming intellectual and ideological sewers.
They will be called on the carpet.
Nothing says "loser" better than that attitude...
The worlds most comfortable shoes ... and still they riot.
The massresistance website lies.
It says, “The following morning the president of Smith College issued a statement (reprinted below) about the incident. The statement is very offensive. She characterizes Ryan Sorbas views as reprehensible
This is untrue. She says, “Whether or not one agrees with a speaker, academic freedom is a core value of colleges and universities, one in which I believe strongly. Such freedom entails the right for duly constituted campus organizations to invite speakers to campus who have controversial views, with which people may disagree or even find reprehensible.”
She did not say the speaker’s views were reprehensible. She said he had a right to speak, even if some found his views reprehensible. I find little to disagree with in her statement.
The opening act for 10,000 Maniacs?
Oh, the kids these days.
I agree with you—however, there are a lot of idolaters who are not homosexual. And the good news of Jesus is for everyone.
I would argue that Paul in Romans 1 is speaking about the acceptance of homosexual behavior in society, which comes about through idolatry—which is a failure to worship God and obey His word. I don’t think he’s saying that individuals tempted by homosexual thoughts are somehow more idolatrous than everyone else...
Most have had bad experiences in their lives—and have listened to the popular lie that homosexual behavior is just fine and dandy—so they let their destructive feelings grow unchecked. I believe the idea that homosexuals are far worse sinners than everyone else though is wrong, and tends to chase folks tempted in that area, out of the church, into the activists arms...
Jesus saves sinners, but, He doesn’t leave them that way.
Maybe they’ll put up some signs in Northampton for the safety of the public:
“BEWARE OF LESBIANS RUNNING AMOK”
Or something to that effect.
I lived in SanFran for years, and had many gay friends. I’m quite sure that some were born gay and others chose it as a lifestyle. Alan Jones, the dean of Grace Cathedral, gave a really interesting sermon about the difference between discovering one’s sexual identity and merely experimenting around with sexual preference. He was not well received that Sunday.
One handsome, intelligent young man with AIDS told me that he’d spent his years at Princeton outside the library men’s room, going in with anyone who wanted him. When he became HIV positive, he began going to workshops for gays who wanted to become straight. Not that it would help save his life, but he wanted to fully understand his behavior and take responsibility...he discovered that he really could have loved women all along. He was dead within a year. Very sad case. His grandfather had been a prominent general in WW2; his family totally abandoned him when he became ill. I was sort of his stand-in mom who would listen, and I treasured our friendship. He was hideously ill at the end. I don’t know how his family could remain detached.
Abortion would be outlawed with very few exceptions within a matter of months. The PC gods must be appeased.
The Pugster would win in a beauty contest against this bunch. I have a theory that lesbos are mostly ugly broads, and I am constantly getting evidence to confirm that.
“I can lick any man in the house...wait a minute, that didn’t come out the way I meant it...”
All I know about lesbians is what I know about Rosy O’Donnell who from what I know was born with a scowl on her face and hatred in her heart. If Barry really wanted to stereotype bitterness, he would get up close and personal with the entire dyke voting bloc which is shared by him and the Witch.
Probably the only time these lesbos will ever hold a frying pan.
The chicks on “The L Word” look nothing like this.
A great title and first sentence!
As Romans 6:23 indicates, the wages of unrepentant sin is death, spiritual death.
From “Chasing Amy” :
Banky Edwards: Alright, now see this? This is a four-way road, OK? And dead in the center is a crisp, new, hundred dollar bill. Now, at the end of each of these streets are four people, OK? Are you following?
Banky Edwards: Good. Over here, we have a male-affectionate, easy to get along with, non-political agenda lesbian. Down here, we have a man-hating, angry as f..., agenda of rage, bitter dyke. Over here, we got Santa Claus, and up here the Easter Bunny. Which one is going to get to the hundred dollar bill first?
Holden: What is this supposed to prove?
Banky Edwards: No, I’m serious. This is a serious exercise. It’s like an SAT question. Which one is going to get to the hundred dollar bill first? The male-friendly lesbian, the man-hating dyke, Santa Claus, or the Easter bunny?
Holden: The man-hating dyke.
Banky Edwards: Good. Why?
Holden: I don’t know.
Banky Edwards: Because the other three are figments of your f...ing imagination!
They would regard a prenatal test for the gay gene as being a hate crime, and would firebomb any lab facility that dared to process such tests
