I didn’t watch this last GOP debate because, well, GOP, Crazy, Trump, Windbag, Carson, Lunatic, Rubio, Liar, Jeb, More of the same.
But I did catch a snippet where one of the moderators asked Ben Carson about he could serve on the board of an LGBT-friendly company like CostCo given that he’s kinda the poster child for the anti-LGBT movement and Carson opted to tell us all that he is not now, nor has he ever been, a homophobe.
“Obviously you don’t understand my views on homosexuality. I believe our Constitution protects everybody regardless of their sexual orientation or any other aspect. I also believe marriage is between one man and one woman. There is no reason you can’t be perfectly fair to the gay community.”
So, wait, he thinks the Constitution protects me, and treats me equally, but he personally does not believe I have the right to be married?
Sir, you are a homophobe. But he continued …
“They [I assume he means The Gays] shouldn’t automatically assume that because you believe that marriage is between one man and one woman that you are a homophobe. This is one of the myths that the left perpetrates on our society and this is how they frighten people and get people to shut up. That’s what the P.C. culture is all about and it’s destroying this nation.”
And yet this Ben Carson is the same Ben Carson who, in 2013, said this:
“No group, be they gays, be they NAMBLA [the North American Man/Boy Love Association], be they people who believe in bestiality, it doesn’t matter what they are, they don’t get to change the definition.”
Wait, so The Gays have no right to call what we do marriage, even though we are equal under the Constitution, and if we try, we are like a bunch of pedophiles or people who engage in bestiality?
Sir, that makes you a homophobe. And this year, after saying he was done discussing The Gays because every time he did he put his foot in his mouth, Ben Carson said that homosexuality is a choice because, wait for it, prison rape turns people gay.
i know; homophobe. But, again, even after saying he was gonna shut his pie hole, Ben Carson, who believes gays are protected by the Constitution came to the defense of Constitution-buster Kim Davis and her quest to keep The Gays from marrying. He said that Christians should be allowed to cite their personal religious beliefs to refuse to recognize same-sex couples because “this is a Judeo-Christian nation in the sense that a lot of our values and principles are based on our Judeo-Christian faith.”
Except for …. Constitution … which, according to Ben Carson means absolutely nothing because, last January, way before the Supreme Court’s Obergefell ruling, Carson said that Congress could fire any federal judge who disagrees with the majority of lawmakers. And then in the days following the Supreme Court ruling, Ben Carson, not a homophobe, said that Congress could pass a “creative” law to circumvent the Constitution.
You know; the same Constitution he said that protects gays people, too.
And, as if we needed any more proof that Ben Carson is a member of Homophobes, Inc., let’s remember that he signed the National Organization for Marriage’s presidential pledge, which demanded support for a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage, the reversal of any policy that recognizes same-sex couple’s marriages, and the end to any nondiscrimination protections for LGBT people.
So, he can say whatever he wants, but his actions, his words, his deeds, hell, even his promises, prove that he’s a homophobe. And since he says he’s not, well, then he’s a liar, too.
It’s queer, he hates The Gays. I mean, anyone who says gay people don't have the same rights as other people, even while saying they are protected by the Constitution, is a homophobe; anyone who thinks we don't deserve protections from being fired for being gay, being denied housing for being gay, being murdered for being gay is a homophobe; or anyone who thinks they can hold a Bible above their heads and say we are less than, is a homophobe.
