Skip to comments.Gay Boy Scouts or Fake Duke LaCrosse Rapes: I Choose Conservative Christian Akins over Romney

Oh how soon we forget!
Sean Hannity was in the lead on the story throughout. False accusations of rape against Duke Lacrosse players made headline news. Then we learned she was pregnant. Now disbarred District Attorney Michael Nifong withheld crucial DNA evidence that proved not one of the accused had been with the accuser sexually. Subsequent DNA tests demonstrated that there would be no paternity liability on the part of any of them. She was not impregnated during her fake rape. Apparently, that happened later at her discretion.
In short, it was not a LEGITIMATE rape. In fact, it was so illegitimate that the DA lost his reputation, his office, his license, and his career.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Mitt Romney has gone on record continuing his support of a gay boy scout organization. This, of course -- continuing our sports theme -- is a triple double. Romney needed something to fit snugly between his past and present support for a gay military and gay adoption by gay couples.
Nah, Romneys homosexualism was just fine and dandy AOK. After all it wasn't in defense of innocent life as was Representative Todd Akins' comment that there's a difference between fake rape and legitimate rape. (See Lacrosse example above.) Also, Akins had the temerity to suggest that a receptive female partner in a willing relationship is more likely to become pregnant than is a violently assaulted woman. There is a certain hopeful logic to that whether or not one knows that violent rape does result in pregnancy.
More to the point is Akins' intent. If there were mistakes made in a rush of words, were they mistakes of the head or mistakes of the heart?
This consistently life-affirming, conservative Christian legislator has huge conservative ratings with the American Conservative Union. A graduate of Covenant Theological Seminary in St Louis, a school renowned as a bastion of traditional, bible-believing Christianity, Representative Akins earned a Master of Divinity. It is rare for one to pursue a Master of Divinity without some sense of divine calling. After all, it is the preparatory degree for ordained ministry. Also, it is among the lengthiest of masters degrees, requiring over 90 semester hours for completion when most others are in the 35-40 hour range. Finally, Akins was only addressing the subject because he was trying to make a pro-life point about saving the life of a baby resulting from rape.
Of course, this is circumstantial evidence about the intent of Representative Akins' heart. In any case, he was advocating immoral behavior as is Mitt Romneys homosexualism.
So, if I was given the chance to replace one and keep the other....I'd be showing Boy Scout Mitt the door.
By CINDY E. RODRIGUEZ April 4, 2011 Crystal Mangum, the woman who falsely accused several Duke University lacrosse team players of rape five years ago, is being held on a $300,000 bond for allegedly stabbing her live-in boyfriend repeatedly Sunday during a heated argument.
In any case, he was ***NOT*** advocating immoral behavior as is Mitt Romneys homosexualism
Whatever they do in Missouri is up to them but I think making a national issue out of it is a loser. This evening my neighbor was complaining about it becoming a national issue when we have our own races to worry about.
I am sorry, I don’t really understand what gay boy scouts and the Duke Lax issue have to do with anything.
“Nah, Romneys homosexualism was just fine and dandy AOK.”
You know, the only other person that uses the word “homosexualist” or a form of it, such as homosexualism is the founder of this site. You are either JR himself or you are one of his sycophants carrying out his dirty deeds. Let us know who you are and quit playing games.
Really... you would choose a guy who would offer an absolute defense to a rapist who impregnated his victim?
I suggest we send Akin up to Mars with Sheila Jackson Lee... the one with the lower IQ can go outside and look for the flag.
Thank you. The Duke fake rape accusation is exactly what I thought of as the opposite of a legitimate rape.
Opposition to homosexuality is now a “Dirty Deed”?
Caver inadvertantly failed to ping you to this post:
I can’t imagine why...
Actually, homosexualism was a term coined a number of years back by a regular on the religion forum. It might have been quix, but I’m just not sure.
I can’t remember who it was, so I’ve pinged some others who’ve been around for a while who might remember.
I’m certain, though, that it wasn’t Jim Robinson. I saw it on the RForum long before I ever saw JR use it.
I don’t suppose you read JR’s recent article on defeating Obama, have you. Otherwise, you’d know that this isn’t an article that he would write, even if his brain did work like mine. (He’s should be supremely grateful to our Heavenly Father that it doesn’t. :-)
I B T Z !
Was the Duke LaCrosse Rape legitimate?
You missed the point. JR’s recent off the wall rants against ABR sound just like the poster of this thread. Read his rants and the poster and tell me they aren’t from the same person.
And yes, homos are doing the dirty deed. But I’m not willing to sell out everything and be a ABR just to prove a so called principled point.
I also see you summoned the Big Kahuna. Bring it on!
I’m with you.
The guy made a lame remark but that doesn’t change the fact that we have a conservative, albeit a foot-in-mouth-conservative, running against a socialist.
Its an easy choice.
Hey, Jim, Caver thinks we're the same person.
Would you tell Mom to quit messing with us?!
Personally, I prefer “sodomite”. Odd that “homosexualist” seems to bother you to the point of jumping to conclusions - as if you know the language used in every post by every poster.
Is criticism of the sodomite lifestyle a particular sore point for you?
