Having the most dedicated heterosexual in the white house is not going to make the US electorate any less gay than it already is. There’s no hope for the press and the press, and you can put it in the bank that they want this fight to be the central issue in 2012. The DADT battle is going to be played out in the courts or in congress if it’s not a dead issue anywhere but in the basement of the pentagon. I’m 100000x more worried about the economy and the national debt.

Being gay is sin! Homos choose to sin. It is against what God created us to be.

Arguments for Darwinism and natural selection tend to agree with Cain. If homosexuality was natural and good for the species, it would enhance reproductive capabilities.

The only way homosexuals can "reproduce" is by recruiting or artificial insemination. People must be enticed to "explore" their homosexuality therefore implying choice.

Examples of recruiting indoctrination are a few pop songs out now. "Born this way", Lady Gaga and "I kissed a girl (and I liked it)" by Katy Perry. The radio station playing at work runs these songs at least 8-10 times a day.

if he overturns this insane sick openly serving homo’s in the military with his first couple of weeks then I will work like mad and donate as much as I can to get this man elected.

I am sick and tired of homosexuals telling us that their agenda is normal and that they should be having laws made for them.

They will use the openly serve homo in the military to now attack DOMA

So candidates should just ignore this question when a Leftist media figure ask them it? Like it or not, these questions are going to be asked of any GOP nominee. They are going to have to answer it. Cain did a fine job addressing it without letting it side track him off message. He is running for President of the USA, not President of the Conservative website clue. Any candidate had better know how to address these sorts of questions.

Maybe the “witches” think he’s a rube who will self destruct, so no need to jump all over him.

Cain’s half right. Like almost any bad habit there’s a voluntary part and there’s an involuntary “jones” behind it. Physicians and psychologists dedicated to helping people break this habit approach both sides of the problem. See for example www.narth.com .

the homo agenda should be front and center as the majority do not want their agenda and states which have voted have shown they do not want the queer agenda either.

It is about time we raised conservative social issues instead of being cowardly.

I guarantee the left or most of them do not want to talk about don’t ask, homosexual marriage, them getting kids or even cross dressers as we all know when we vote on these issues the left always looses.

There aren’t but maybe 1% of the population that is homosexual,
and those who are so supportive of them make up the democRat base,
so there wouldn’t be any winning of them, ever, anyway.

correct and those on the right have been silent on this agenda for far too long which the left wants.

Romney will not talk about social issues because he likes to try and appease the 3% of homosexuals.

I want a proper conservative not some half baked wishy washy pro loving queer candidate who is liberal on social issues.

Being conservative means just that it does not mean being liberal on social issues

Someone needs to openly state what the left’s agenda is WRT queers.

We spend too much time “answering a fool in his folly”, arguing with the left based on their false premises and their false-facade issues.

We need to go right to the heart of their agenda and expose it. A leftist exposed is a leftist defeated.

Not insane, brilliant. This way he gets to speak to the "mushy minded" who watch the show. One only has to plant a seed.

How many seeds will take? Who knows....but if you don't try, you will never know.

I find it strange that people can be “straight” for decades (with spouses and kids) and then become gay (of course, proving that they were gay all along), but the idea that someone can be gay for some time and then “convert” to a straight lifestyle is totally abhorent to the “gay community.”

Agreed I and others contacted Hannity seeing as he keeps saying he supports the troops.

Every time we tried to get the DADT issues raised he would cut us off and refused to mention what the homosexual agenda was doing.
However he later did say he has no problem with who married who and then admitted he was liberal on social issues, that was my last time watching or listening to the phony.

DOMA will now be attacked as they will say they can fight and die but cannot be married in their state.

These people which say I have a homo friend and they’re nice or I don’t care who marries who is not understanding there is a bigger picture here.

Remember 15 years ago when they said it was their private life, how times change hey.

Then we have many who will not show the public the photo’s of folsom fair, what they do in dog parks, parks, public bathrooms, they are not reporting on two homo women who raised their son as a girl and are giving him injections to stop him from becoming a man,
Or we have a woman who who said he was a woman, then raised her son as a girl and now wants the school to let her soon to use the girls bathroom even though he really is a boy

All of these issues need to be raised and the homo agenda will be dead to the public there after.

staying silent is being cowardly and letting them pass their agenda IMHO

If being homosexual was hereditary, it would have been bred out of the species millions of years ago. Even the trait of being “susceptible” to being gay would have been bred out. As far as I’m concerned Cain is 100% on this....it’s “nurture” not “nature”.

I mean once he becomes president and we gain power then we need to overturn this policy of allowing homosexuals to serve and I hope he does it within the first few weeks of him being in the white house and then make it so hard for the left to eevr do this again.

All he has to say is that there was no proper investigation into this.
This was done to appease a small group of voters with a lot of money.
The majority of Generals and service men and women do not want this.
There has already been too many issues since this law came about which the media will not make public.
PC is ruining the military.

I disagree with Cain on this one...and I manage to piss everybody off with my opinoion it seems.

While many of the flamboyant ‘gay’ people have clearly chosen that lifestyle, I do believe that some people are born gay. As proof of this, I look at people who try to hide it (the actor who played the dad on the Brady bunch for example), and people who try to fight it (gay men who deliberately enter the priesthood as a way to fend off their propensities).

However, having said that, I believe it is abnormal. No different than being born with a heart defect, 11 toes, whatever. And, I believe it is correct to identify it as abnormal, and even try to correct it - no different than treating a person with depression. Certainly, it should not be encouraged, and celebrated.

Even a little superficial thought would show how insane this statement is. Is he the president of everything deplorable in the United States? Is he President of all the rapist, robbers, pedophiles, anarchists, sworn enemies of this country?

We compartmentalize and separate from us the worst in society that we deem unworthy of assimilating. It can be strongly argued that the President doesn't represent that, but repudiates it.

These witches represent the worst of the worst that our society is devolving into. They don't deserve a place at the table. The fact that we've given them a place indicates a grave sickness in our national identity.

There are any number of genetic diseases that kill their victims at a very young age. By your logic those should have disappeared as well. As should conditions like autism, since very few people who suffer from that produce offspring.

Cain is right about this. There are no studies showing a genetic predisposition.

In fact, twins studies show evidence where when seprated at birth, one is gay the other is not.

Gays would love to find the Holy Grail that makes this something they have no control over.

Cain, should follow up and say that being gay is not an easy life style and that for the most part these are troubled people we all know this.

But this will virtually end his campaign because Romney and the others will climb all over him for it, and he will be taken out of text etc.

BUT WHAT HE SAYS IS TRUE..

I agree with you. Arguing that it would have been breed out is also ridiculous. If that were true, there would be no children with cancer or other deadly childhood diseases. Just because you don’t get the gene doesn’t mean you don’t carry it.

Having said that, I very seriously doubt it is 100% genetic. My bet would be for males it is 50% genetic and for females 1%.
