Gay Boy Scouts or Fake Duke LaCrosse Rapes: I Choose Conservative Christian Akins over Romney
Self | 24 Aug 12 | Xzins

Posted on 08/21/2012 7:08:56 PM PDT by xzins

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.

Firestorm?

Nah, Romney’s 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 Romney’s homosexualism.

So, if I was given the chance to replace one and keep the other....I'd be showing Boy Scout Mitt the door.

From ABC:

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.

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.

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.

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. :-)

The problem is Akins not Romney! Akins dug himself a hole, and he kept digging. He should've known better.

If he's going to be a complete dunce on issues like this then he should've shut up before he said something this stupid.

He is 100% to blame for what happened.

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!

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.

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?

I sometimes employ the expression “gayism” to refer to the ideology as opposed to the simple moral failing. So I’m fine with the other word as well. It seems useful.

There is no such term in English as “legitimate rape”. You either committed rape or your didn’t. The Duke Lacrosse case was a false accusation of rape. It is sort of like saying “biological father”.

So you think that Mr. Jim Robinson "rants"? This is his site, his home if you will, and we are guests here through his good graces. If nothing else, it is bad form to say that our host rants.

Jim has fought for his country, build the world's premiere Conservative web site from scratch and has provided a forum for we pro-God, pro-life, pro-gun and pro-liberty to engage in Conservative activism. This is the site that was instrumental in the Clinton impeachment, the exposure of John Kerry's lies and the removal of Dan Rather. To characterize the thoughts of Mr. Robinson as "off the wall rants" reveals a lack of respect for the boss. I've learned a lot from him and his thoughts have only served to solidify my Christian Conservatism.

Hi Yash & P-Marlowe,

They took this thread and pulled it from editorial, freeper editorial, and the news forum.

I’m not sure which forum it’s in yet.

Apparently, the “truce” is over, and non-supporters of Romney are going to be hidden in the back rooms of the mansion.

If we get banned we’ll meet on the other side of Jordan some day.

Rotflol!

There is no such term in English as “legitimate rape”.

To be fair, I'm thinking that what Akin might have been talking about with this term is along the lines of "rape that actually occurred," as opposed to the sort of "rape" that happens when a girl gets with some guy, her dad finds out, gets mad, and then she claims she was raped to save her own skin.

Same here. I don't think I've ever used the term "gay" to describe the miserable, unhappy creatures that deliberately and maliciously engage in the despicable acts that clearly are against the Will of God. Granted, I'm of an older generation (now 70) when the word "gay" meant happy and joyous. In fact, I'd even characterize my marriage to my dear, late wife as gay. God Bless her memory and the wonderful years we shared.

I may be fighting a losing battle, but before I pass on, I'd sure like to see "gay" restored to its rightful and original meaning. The sodomites have ruined so much -- even our English language. Let's take it back!

You’re really going to need to explain yourself, here. I’ve read your reply several times, and can only conclude that you dislike Jim Robinson for his opposition to gay agenda issues.

Is this a fair reading of your intentions in writing this? If so, why are you here?

Of course there is. See Merriam-Webster definition #2 below. It's an adjective and a noun. I'll use it in a sentence. The Duke Lacrosse players did not commit a legitimate rape. (It was not a spurious rape.) From Merriam-Webster: Definition of LEGITIMATE 1a : lawfully begotten; specifically : born in wedlock b : having full filial rights and obligations by birth 2: being exactly as purposed : neither spurious nor false 3a : accordant with law or with established legal forms and requirements b : ruling by or based on the strict principle of hereditary right 4: conforming to recognized principles or accepted rules and standards 5: relating to plays acted by professional actors but not including revues, burlesque, or some forms of musical comedy

IMHO anyone who isn’t absolutely repulsed by the idea of homosexual sex must harbor homosexual feelings.

In this case I believe that Romney is a closet homo. He can’t sue me for that because it may be true and if it isn’t, he can’t claim that it is an insult, since he thinks that being a homosexual is perfectly normal and acceptable and honorable.

Akins stepped in it, but I think he can recover. There is a thread that just started that indicates that the doctor who came up with the theory Akins mentioned about forcible rape reproductive defense is a long time Romney surrogate.

Maybe Romney should step aside and let Akins in. At least Akins is naturally repulsed by the idea of men buggering men or boys buggering boys or men buggering boys.

I’m fearful that the GOP-E doesn’t want a conservative Christian Senator. They could just be going bananas because they hate blood in the water moments with MSM jouralists, but why weren’t they doing the same over Romney’s pro-gay Boy Scouts, Adoption, Military comments?

Answer: Christians are scarier than sodomites.

I don't know about all that as I don't hang out on the religion forum much, but what I do know is that I can search the term and I've found an article from way back in September 04, 2001 titled "Lesbian “Rabbis” Await New Generation" which uses the term.
On the contrary, flouting rabbinical authority and undermining the divine source of scripture has always been the primary objective of radical feminism and homosexualism.

Just trying to set a quick base point into the duration of usage, not trying to find the originator.
