"I think it’s funny when people say I’m gay... I laugh it off. I’m not. But even if I was, I wouldn’t be ashamed. It wouldn’t bother me in the slightest what people thought. But I can understand why I have a massive gay following – I spend most of my life half naked in trunks on a diving board showing off my bare chest. I often joke I wear more to bed than I do to work. But I’m cool with my gay following. It’s great to have gay fans even though my friends gently take the mick. I just think about my diving.”
I think about your diving, too, and that teeny weenie bikini you’re wearing while doing so.
Bryan Fischer, American Family Association spokesbigot, saying gay rights activists are modern day Nazis:
"That's what homosexual activists want to do today. Not physically, but through intimidation and legal action and harassment do the same thing to Christians today. They are not content to 'live and let live.' They've go to punish. They've got to destroy. They've got to eliminate. They've got to marginalize. They've got to neutralize. They've got to completely silence any voice that defends man-woman marriage and the abiding truths of the word of God."
I consider myself a bit of a gay activist — being out and vocal and all — and I have zero problems with most Christians. My problem is with those Christians who seek to use their religion, forgetting all others, to make law in this country.
SIDENOTE: Fischer says he knows "for a matter of historical record" that Hitler's top stormtroopers were gay and that the Nazi Party started in a gay bar.
Um, was he there? In the gay bar? Answer that question, Bryan.
Sandy Rios, American Family Association spokesmodel and bigot, on how a US military intervention in Syria will fail because of women and The Gays:
"When I looked at those battleships going into the Mediterranean, supposedly getting ready for battle in Syria, I couldn't help think about all the stories I've read about how women now are in the ranks of the Navy, getting pregnant at exponential numbers; when I think about the folding in and the repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell and the homosexual takeover of so much of our military I'm not sure how effective those naval ships will be."
Once again, Sandy Rios dumbs down women and The Gays into groups that think only about sex and nothing else.
I wonder if Rios was in that gay bar with Fischer and the Nazis because she's so all-consumed with the sex that other people are having. It's all she thinks about.
Sandy quite possibly needs to get laid.
Don’t forget, you moron, that your ‘island nation’ works both ways, and when you have another horrific explosion at one of your unregulated factories don’t ask the US of A for help; when the tornados comes, well, sorry, and when the hail storms hit, take care of yourself. Works both ways, ya crackpot!
Barry Smitherman, the Texas Railroad Commission Chairman who is running for Attorney General, on Texas secession:
"We are uniquely situated because we have energy resources, fossil and otherwise, and our own independent electrical grid. Generally speaking, we have made great progress in becoming an independent nation, an ‘island nation’ if you will, and I think we want to continue down that path so that if the rest of the country falls apart, Texas can operate as a stand-alone entity with energy, food, water and roads as if we were a closed-loop system."
"Growing up I was a target. Speaking the right way, standing the right way, holding your wrist the right way. Every day was a test and there was a thousand ways to fail...A thousand ways to portray yourself to not live up to someone else's standards of what was accepted....The first time I tried to kill myself I was 15. I waited until my family went away for the family and I was alone in the house and I swallowed a bottle of pills. I don't remember what happened over the next couple of days but I'm pretty sure come Monday morning I was on the bus back to school pretending everything was fine .... I had multiple opportunities to speak my truth, which is that I was gay, but I chose not to. I was out privately to family and friends. Publicly, I was not. I chose to lie. When I thought about the possibility of coming out, how that might impact me and the career I worked so hard for, I was filled with fear."
That sums up the childhood of so many LGBTQ youth, and wouldn’t it be better if we just accepted everyone as who they are, and didn’t try to label them, denigrate them, insult them.
Just think how many kids would no longer think about suicide and that should be enough to make people stop.
