Skip to comments.‘Duck Dynasty’ Star’s Anti-Gay Comments: Clay Aiken Weighs In
Posted on 12/21/2013 2:23:17 PM PST by ColdOne
I think the thing that frustrates me the most is that there have been people whove come out today and said, Its free speech, its free speech, Aiken continued. And I would ask them if the person had said something about interracial marriage, or said that we should put all children with disabilities in institutions, would we still say, Well, thats free speech, were okay with that opinion? And I think the answer is no.
Aiken did, however, say that society has made progress in its acceptance of gays though total acceptance isnt likely to happen anytime soon.

Acceptance? They have that now, and it’s not enough....they want to be CELEBRATED.
I can finally sleep now.
He’s the Gay Clay from American Idol. ;)
What males on that show aren’t gay?
What. A. Boob.
Never heard of him.
I remember how people didn’t accept the obviousness about Aiken during the Idol year he participated. Folks here at FR, for example, were in denial.
They confuse tolerance with acceptance.
Clay Aiken? No, seriously.... does his opinion really carry any weight?
And if Clay Aiken were a conservative this headline would read “Aiken compares gays to disabled kids!!”
My sons went to YMCA camp a few summers here in NC; day camp. Clay was one of the counselors. They never had him as theirs, but it was universally known that Clay was a complete ass-hat of a counselor and was not liked by anybody.
Nobody is stopping them from doing what they do. Just don't equate said behavior with those who hold traditional beliefs and force us to accept it.
Gee I dont remember Clay Aiken or anyone else on the left make a big deal out of Martin Bashir saying that someone should take a dump in Sarah Palin’s mouth..I think the homos need to go on twitter and look up REAL hate..just type in Sarah Palin’s name in the search bar..that’s REAL hate
Oh, thank heaven. This situation really needed Clay Aiken’s input, bless his heart.
I’m still waiting with bated breath for Justin Guarini and Cher’s mangirl offspring thingy to comment.
They were both pitchers. I won’t ask the obvious. :-)
>> Aiken did, however, say that society has made progress in its acceptance of gays
It’s about “acceptance” now.
Clay, every day we hear people who say children should
be aborted in the womb, and that it’s all right to
have anal sex with people of their own sex and we
are TOLD that to criticise them is hateful and we
are WRONG. Maybe you better wake up to what you
I am sorry but whenever anyone confuses race/skin color—with sexual orientation it proves they are too ignorant to discuss anything reasonably.One of the few things Colin Powell has said I still agree with is what he put in Crisis about comparing skin color to sexual orientation.It is indeed a convenient but invalid argument. Modern Science has NEVER proven the Holy Writ:to be in error. When we pretend the Bible errs—it is only our own ignorance being made manifest. I stand by what the bible says about sex—and marriage -and who will or will NOT enter the Kingdom of God.
But he was talking about homosexuals, so it's okay.
Well, Clay, why don’t you try a vagina?
Mixed-race marriage couples aren’t trying to screw little boys.
Aiken is homosexual, yes?
It is far better to have free speech and rebuttals than the silence and conformity of political correctness. Free and open speech leads to creativity and social progress. Socially imposed self censorship leads to stagnation and suspicion
He’s been out of the limelight for years so, of course, he has to drop in at Arsenio’s show for some camera time. Anything for publicity.
Clay Aikin and Arsenio Hall represent the same miniscule portion of America as do Martin Bashir and Alec Baldwin.
Yes, I would say "that's free speech." But no, I wouldn't agree with his opinion. If ole Clay can't tell the difference between those two things, then he's a certifiable idiot and the last person I'd be taking advice from.
Why won’t anyone accept my right to drink my ass off?
I ain’t bothering nobody.
I got a crush on Johnnie...Yeah, that’s right. The smooth talking Johnnie Walker Black...
That’s not racist is it...
Things that trouble Clay Aiken
1) Phil Robertson paraphrasing First Corinthians.
Things that don’t trouble Clay Aiken
1) Obama’s pal Bill Ayers bombing the home of a federal judge and his nine year old son.
2) Obama shipping thousands of guns to Drug Lords, resulting in hundreds of Mexican deaths.
3)Liberal Martin Bashir wanting to deficate in Sarah Palin’s mouth.
4) Liberal Allan Brauer -Communications Chair of Sacramento County Democrats wishes death on Ted Cruz Speechwriters children. He tweeted “May your children all die from debilitating, painful and incurable diseases.
5) Liberal associate professor of journalism David Guthhad wishes that the children of NRA members be shot.
6)Liberal Nina Totenberg wishes the grandchildren of Jessie Helm’s contract aids
7)Liberal Alec Baldwin wishes that Henry Hyde’s family be stoned and his children killed.
8) 54 million aborted babies by the liberal child death culture.
and his brothers Blackie and Red
And we drank alone, yeah,
with nobody else
Yeah, you know when I drink alone,
I prefer to be by myself
Hey Clay - insert a used butt plug in your mouth and STFU.
Why was it OK for perverts to flaunt their pervisions on MTV's Real World, but not OK for Christians to be Christian?
And the stupid marches on.........
Why should anyone accept gays any more than they accept kleptomaniacs.
Aiken is another leftist who absolutely cannot connect any dots! Whether or not Aiken would like to believe, men and women are NOT freely interchangeable; they are different. Pretending that same sex union is equal to heterosexual union is nonsense.
What a disjointed, inappropriate observation! Aiken should go back to doing whatever it is that he does for a living, instead of making foolish statements that he cannot support.
Clay quacks me up.
Isn’t he dead yet?
The whole deal with “right to free speech” is that those who say things with which you may or may not agree, still have the right to SAY them.
That such speech should be free of consequences, however, is nowhere protected by the Constitution or ever deduced from the New or Old Testament. Actions that result from carelessly delivered speech, like shouting “Fire!” in a crowded theater, when there is in fact no fire, should and does earn the person bearing false witness great retribution, for the mischief created needlessly.
Responsibility goes along with the right, and what Phil Robertson stated is far more responsible than the denunciation by Clay Aiken. And it certainly is in register with kind of upbringing that the Robertson Clan has adhered to al their lives. Clay Aiken has made a long assumption that HE, personally, was the target, and allowed no latitude within the span of culture to recognize the difference.
Another talking asshat comparing being black to being homosexual.
Who cares what she thinks?
Clay Who?? Is there anyone who isn’t trying to ride this publicity train?
