My Hate Speech Conviction
Townhall.com ^ | September 8, 2010 | Mike Adams

Posted on 09/08/2010 9:43:35 AM PDT by Kaslin

Over the summer, I was convicted of anti-gay hate speech. The most incredible thing about it was that I never set foot in Canada. The conviction happened while I was in Colorado. But the offense took place almost 15 years ago.

In the 1990s, a friend of mine announced that he was divorcing his wife because he had decided (after a couple of unhappy marriages) to pursue the gay lifestyle. My decision to support him was born out of ignorance. Not only was I harboring the illusion that there actually was such a thing as a gay gene. I was also ignorant of the fact that gays could be successfully cured through therapeutic efforts.

My decision to label my own verbal support of his lifestyle choice as “hate speech” makes sense only after one becomes educated about that lifestyle. According to the Centers for Disease Control, over 82% of all known sexually-transmitted HIV cases in 2006 were the result of male-to-male sexual contact. Moreover, gay and bisexual men account for over 60% of all syphilis cases.

Some will say that homophobia is the indirect cause of such numbers. They claim that fear of stigmatization keeps gays from seeking information before they become ill and from seeking medical help afterwards. But, clearly, that is not the case. In cultures where homosexuality is more accepted the numbers are worse. That is why I steadfastly maintain that supporting my friend’s decision to turn to the homosexual lifestyle was indeed an example of hate speech.

Most gays become angry when someone tells the truth about the health consequences of their lifestyle choice. The reason they get angry over the facts is because their conscience convicts them. When I came to realize that I helped make it easier for my friend to pursue his unhealthy lifestyle my conscience was convicted. I have regretted my verbal support of his decision ever since.

No sane person could ever posit that the act of rectal sodomy is safe, normal, or healthy. The rectum is a one-way street. It is a sewer meant for the expulsion of poison. Treating the rectum as a sex organ is damaging to the health – especially for the recipient of such abuse. That is why it is an act of hate, regardless of whether some choose to call it “love.”

But the gay lifestyle has never been about love. The average number of lifetime sex partners is four for a heterosexual, fifty for a homosexual. Monogamy is the norm (82%) among heterosexuals, and an aberration (2%) among homosexuals. This promiscuity is routed in the pairing of similar traits, which is an inevitable result in homosexual relationships.

It should go without saying that women have greater emotional needs than men, while men have greater physical needs than women. They need each other to balance one another out. And that is why when two men are together the physical aspects of the relationship spiral out of control to the point of compulsion. That is why estimates show that anywhere from 21-43% of homosexual males have had several hundred sex partners.

One study of white male homosexuals, published in the 1970s, showed that 43% of white males had sex with over 500 partners. Over one-quarter (28%) had sex with over 1000 partners. When these drives are unchecked they often go in dangerous directions. Although homosexual men are only about three percent of the population, they commit about one-third of all acts of child molestation.

Even pseudo-conservative Andrew Sullivan knows that homosexuality is about unbridled sexual pursuit rather than love. He openly claims that homosexuals need more than one sex partner and that heterosexual relationships are too restrictive. But he refuses to see succumbing to sexual temptation as a weakness. Instead, he calls it a sign of “honesty” and “flexibility.”

Andrew Sullivan thinks we should all become more like gays. In his calls for the majority to conform to the minority he reveals the fundamental narcissism that is at the core of the gay lifestyle. From Andrew Sullivan’s perspective, homosexuality is all about self-gratification.

But love, by definition, seeks the ultimate good of the loved one by forsaking all others. That is why we must steer our loved ones away from the homosexual lifestyle and suffer the slings and arrows of the true perpetrators of hate speech.

I would be happy if someone pointed me out all the problems related to fiscal non-conservativism.

I can tell you that the rise of radical islam and illegal immigration are perfectly related to fiscal issues of the welfare state, and who the government officials are willing to dole it out to.

Adams makes an excellent point.

Homosexuality, is, obviously a mental disorder.

Can you imagine if we as a society decided to treat depression by trying to make the disorder normal and acceptable rather than try to cure it?

Yet another of the abominations liberalism has inflicted on us.

Truth is not hate speech. Statistics don’t lie. They are gross — but they don’t lie. He may convict himself of “hate speech,” but he helps NO ONE in using that phrase — and only hurts others who tell the truth...

The stats tell the story. Not well known, but actuarial tables compiled in the 1950s for men put the average life expectancy of a heterosexual at 72 while a homosexual life expectancy was less than 50. Twenty plus years difference in life expectancy is a clue. BTW the difference for smokers and non-smokers was 3 years. Guess which pathology the left hates? Insanity preached by the psuedo believers in rationality. PS - these tables were compiled in the 1950s and did not account for unknown deseases like AIDs. I have no idea what todays numbers look like.

...This would have been a pretty decent article if he had just dropped out the first paragraph:
"Over the summer, I was convicted of anti-gay hate speech. The most incredible thing about it was that I never set foot in Canada. The conviction happened while I was in Colorado. But the offense took place almost 15 years ago".

I spent several minutes trying figure out what was his conviction, and where he was convicted... I think he's speaking on a metaphysical level, as 'having his conscience convicted' (or, 'convicted in the heart'). If that was the case - he could have made the point more clear - because his play on words distracted from the good points in his article...
If he really was convicted of some crime (somewhere) - I gave up trying to find out where it was.

It’s a free choice:

It is not overstated to say that the Torah’s prohibition of non-marital sex made the creation of Western civilization possible. Societies that did not place boundaries around sexuality were stymied in their development. The subsequent dominance of the Western world can largely be attributed to the sexual revolution initiated by Judaism, and later carried forward by Christianity.

I’m no proponent of homosexuality, but this article describes dangers of unprotected, polygamous, irresponsible sex, not of homosexuality per se. One might infer the author would be okay with strictly monogamous, protected homosexual relations.

Clean or dirty, safe or unsafe, homosexuality is sexual disorientation. It’s not normal, and it’s philosophically problematic to support behavior that reinforces an abnormal condition. I don’t care if someone chooses to behave abnormally in private, but it would be dishonest of me to applaud and encourage it.

Some peoples' issue may be abortion. Others have the deficit as their hot button. Still others may concern themselves with drugs.

This is his. It doesn't make him a closeted homosexual.

It may not be a choice to be homosexual (we all have our temptations), but it most certainly is a choice to practice and give in to that lifestyle temptation.

Instilling paranoia about the rewards of living in civilization helps break down civilization, but the normalization of homosexuality will break down civilization much faster and more violently. Therefore, these risks must be ignored.

This is liberal logic, at least among the intellectual power stations of the movement. Few will admit it, though.

If it is a disorder, it can’t be a choice.

If there is a cure and your refuse to take it you are choosing to remain disordered.

There is a cure. There are 10's of thousands of ex-homosexuals. Yet the 'gay' community shuns anyone seeking to be healthy. Why? because they choose to remain disordered.

They were cured by making a better choice, not by treating the disorder. I don’t think they become “ex-homosexuals”. I just think they start making better choices in life.

I don’t believe in the “hard-wired” explanation of sexuality.

If it is a disorder it should not be promoted as normal - but rather it should be discouraged and correctly defined.

Um ...ew.

I get that. However, I believe this "lifestyle" needs to be exposed (yep, pun intended) for what it is. We cannot allow it to be re-defined as 'love', 'marriage' and just as 'beautiful' a union as the male-female one created by God. It's not. God created us male and female, and stamped the proper physical union into our very bodies. It is Satan's lie that denies this truth.

This reminds me of the debate over life too. There we also recoil from what is truly going on - the murder of a human being. We can't display the gruesome pictures in polite society. We create similar false words like "choice" to avoid acknowledging the true evil going on.

Sorry for the rant. Carry on.

A lot of you are clearly missing the humorous points being made by Adams, whose writing is always a bit “tongue in cheek”. His reference to being convicted while not even being in Canada is a play on words using two meanings of the word “conviction”: conviction as with one’s conscience and conviction as in breaking the law. The reference to Canada is an aside remark since one can be convicted of hate speech in Canada for simply stating opposition to homosexuality.

That is the lifestyle of most homosexuals. Quiet, monogamous homosexuality is the myth.

There is a book called After the Ball. It is about homosexual propaganda. On page 49 it states to push that “Vast majority” of homosexuals do not engage in compulsive high-risk sex" when they do. On pages 64 to 67 is says: All sexual morality should be abolished.
