This is a month old, but I just saw it today. Searched and couldn't find it posted previously; apologies if it's a repeat.

I really like the fact that Newt didn't pander or waffle or try to be 'politically correct'; his answer was blunt and direct (and correct).

Yes; this is old news. But, Newt handled it well. The Gay Community will not vote Republican anyhow; so screw them. Oops.... on second thought, I’ll pass on that.

Outstanding! Newt has been un-pc nowadays. Top 2 posters are correct: these homos will never vote GOP unless the GOP holds a leather spandex night.

Finally the correct answer for those in special interest groups wishing only to balkanize conservatives and have candidates gushingly give them politically correct answers.

Great stuff.

And yet who, besides Newt, would have had the quickness of wit and courage to give this reply?

Mitt would have panders, Ricky Santorum would mamble about his grandfather and Ron Paul would have whined...

To support homosexual “marriage” is unconstitutional. There are no “special rights” for sodomy. It should be illegal because of the disease and dysfunction of the activity and it is always EVIL.

Sodomy is EVIL. Republics are suppose to support VIRTUE!!!!! That is the intent of the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God. WE have a standard for Right and Wrong and it NEVER INCLUDED SODOMY.

Adultery is a felony in at least one state, while we’re at it, by your standards we should begin stoning everyone who sleeps around too! Let’s really drive the point home!

You are lucky you don’t work here in Hollywood. Every major intersection has an HIV poster and billboard, including 2 fags getting it on right on Sunset Blvd. Effing nauseating. They are assuming everyone here is a homo.

It reminds me of the Ann Coulter exchange. To paraphrase it essentially went something like this: When that arab girl asked her about (I think) profiling on airplanes, and the girl said she didn’t think it was fair. To which Coulter responded with something like “Then take a flying carpet.” Then the girl said “What if I don’t have one?” and she said something like “Take a camel.”

Here’s a portion of the video:

No use sweating the gay stuff.
Gingrich should focus his energy on conservatives and the suicidal followers of Romney cult.

WEll, no-—I am NOT a muslim. In fact, most people think the muslims don’t like homosexuality-—when sodomy is their main recreation along with boys. It is the women they despise (and sodomize as well).

Actually, I do think ANYONE sodomizing a child, should get the death penalty.

Adults engaging in the despicable acts should be considered shameful and evil—because it is. Quite disgusting and dysfunctional and disease-causing.

I would prosecute people who commit sodomy esp. in public, just like any indecent act. Government has the duty to promote Virtue in societies. Republics without Virtue can not stand (Cicero, Founding Fathers).

Stoning? No, but governments should NEVER give them SPECIAL RIGHTS. It is stupid and dysfunctional. It is unnatural-—no animals commit sodomy in nature and they NEVER sodomize their young.....such evil, demeaning acts.

I would not allow any propaganda spreading such evil practices either. It (the act of sodomy) would be considered obscene and evil and dysfunctional (which it is). It would be against the law to promote such dysfunction in schools and in the military (like it was for hundreds of years).

They are doing it to promote and groom children into their lifestyle. It is a learned behavior-—but they have to force out Virtue and Christian Ethics and make the Bible “Hate Speech”. Sins of the Flesh are the easiest way to corrupt and warp the young and ruin their lives and all future relationships.

Gingrich to gay voter: Support Obama

Gingrich did not imply that he wants for all gay voters to vote for Obama. His advice was specifically directed at the few hyperpolitical gay voters who regard gay marriage as the most important issue of the 2012 presidential election.

71% of homosexuals accdg to CNS news are HIV positive. Now if that’s the case, would be fair to say that the fag community pay for 71% of funding for HIV “cures”?

Ewww. Heterosexual men put up with it. American men have been abused for leftist sex perverts beginning with the feminists who were mostly queers and now queers directly. Young white men are acting more and more gay. They are followers and gay is named cool. It’s disgusting.

I went to the link on Drudge about the high school yearbook pictures. It’s very entertaining, but Newt was on the debate team and was voted most intellectual in his class. Herman Cain was voted most likely to succeed. Funny they didn’t have any dem yearbook pics. Probably none exist of BO.

Hi rogue yam & TChad,

The Mods have repeatedly asked us all to use the exact titles when posting articles, and I try to comply with their instructions :) I do agree with you that it’s a poor title for the article.

I hoped that my comments (in post number one) would add some indication of what actually transpired in the video, as a counterpoint to the title itself :)

What's even better is I've worked with some gay men who WILL NOT vote for Obama because of the Economy, Obamacare and one of them is pro-life. They think these issues trump “gay rights”. They voted for Obama last time.

No, the study doesn't say that 61% of all homosexual men are HIV positive. It says this:

"The study also revealed that almost 20% of homosexual men have HIV."

It says that homosexual men account for 61% of all new HIV infections.

I am a Christian...what does that have to do with stoning????

Muslims still practice inhumane torture and deaths like people in Ancient times.

Why would you think we would go back to irrational practices. The US legal system is based on Natural Law Theory which has a developed philosophy on Just Law. It is based on God’s Law and “Right Reason according to Nature”.

Why would rational law—knowing Virtue is essential to Republics—want to promote something as disordered, destructive and nihilistic as sodomy? It should still be illegal—as it was for hundreds of years when we had Just Law—since it is the cause of billions of dollars in losses for tax payers. It is evil behavior.

Actually, in “my state” (both the one I’m from, and the one I live in) the State constitution reads that only marriage between one man, and ONE woman is lawful. I realize you apostasized from your religion and now have an axe to grind. Apparently with an entire geographic location, too.

P.S. I don’t care who you’re “with” nor will I further respond to your posts (just like I’ve done for the better part of the last 2 years. Auto clearing them, is easy for you cut and pasties.) Good night, madam.

Would you prosecute man and wife who engage in oral, or even anal, sex? Because that fits the definition of sodomy. I used to be just like you. I KNEW I had all the right answers. I was so damned sure of myself. Then I realized my dogmatism was actually just peer pressure and the desire to be accepted.
I’d not wish to be married to you. Missionary position, only for procreation, female orgasms prohibited.

It will be interesting to watch how the “already captured”media picks up on this.It probably is fermenting in cesspools like the Advocate—or the Washington Blade—and I expect Newt will respond like he has— but The media loves to
publish only the homosexual side as it did when they went after Dr.Laura Schlessinger— or Dr.Lorraine Day.—Or John Paulk or _______? fill in the blank.

Which was Newt's point. If gay marriage is your defining issue, vote for Obama. If you want a better economy, vote for Newt.

He should respond similarly to the NAACP.

Exactly. And I think some of those voters will respond to that sort of straight-talk. Those gay men that I worked with were for gay marriage and went with that sort of wink-wink they thought they got from Obama that said “Gay rights” including gay marriage nationally were his top first term priorities. I don't agree with them but they are funny and easy enough to get along with and Obama’s lost them. Ha ha!

LOL. Like Utah actually enforces that law. Polygamy is a huge problem in Utah that they do nothing about. Motes and beams.

Also, don’t get your garmies in a bunch. I don’t cut and paste and I opened my eyes and left that evil cult and became a Christian. I will stop ‘grinding my axe’ as you call it when your religion stops lying to it members and starts telling them the truth.

I love it! Newt is expressing precisely and publicly what most conservatives think. I scream at my tv when issues like this come up, but no one can hear me. I think a person such as this gay voter, respects this type of response. It is clear, it is true and is not open for further debate.

Do what we did after 10 years in So. Cal. Pack it in and move to God’s Country. We’ve been in eastern TN for two years. It took one year to acclimate ourselves to the fact that people are decent, kind, and moral — sincerely. In CA, when people behaved that way, generally they were fishing for a favor, so we were suspicious when meeting people here. Here, it’s in the genes or something.

Well, I figure if we’re going to have people hammer morality, they may as well recognize the rampant, family-breaking, society-destroying adultery epidemic. If we’re getting ito the bedroom, then it’s so natural to begin with adultery; which actually affects people in a legal contract. Let’s start there and cleanse the inward vessel first! (I was being serious. If there’s a gonna be a holy war, you better be without sin first. And the hypocrits thought I was being sarcastic I wasn’t. Of course I don’t believe in their ridiculous assertions, but they may as well do it in the Biblical model!)
