BREAKING: Texas Attorney General Issues Stunning Order to Fight Back Against Supreme Court

In a stunning move, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton bucked the Supreme Court and declared that county clerks have the right to refuse to perform a same-sex marriage if they have a religious objection to doing so, according to the Statesman.

As Conservative Tribune reports:

This legal opinion comes after the Supreme Court controverted the decisions of a majority of state governments and their citizens and imposed gay marriage on the entire country, offering little to no protection to Christians and others who may have sincere, faith-based objections to the practice.

Paxton did warn that clerks who refuse to issue gay marriage licenses can be sued; however, he added that “numerous lawyers stand ready to assist clerks defending their religious beliefs,” in many cases without charge.

The Texas AG issued a scathing rebuke of the Supreme Court’s decision, arguing that it put Christian officials in the impossible situation of choosing between following the U.S. Constitution and their faith.

“Friday, the United States Supreme Court again ignored the text and spirit of the Constitution to manufacture a right that simply does not exist. In so doing, the court weakened itself and weakened the rule of law, but did nothing to weaken our resolve to protect religious liberty and return to democratic self-government in the face of judicial activists attempting to tell us how to live,” Paxton stated.

He also said that “judges and justices of the peace have no mandatory duty to conduct any wedding ceremony,” only that they cannot refuse to perform a wedding on the basis of race, religion, or national origin.

“The reach of the court’s opinion stops at the door of the First Amendment and our laws protecting religious liberty,” Paxton contended. “Our religious liberties find protection in state and federal constitutions and statutes. While they are indisputably our first freedom, we should not let them be our last.”

Simply stunning. Texas shows how Federal tyranny can be resisted once again, and the rights of the states re-asserted.

    Each State of this NATION has the RIGHT to its OWN Sovereignty! Not this SOCIALIST CRIMINAL Obama Administration, CORRUPT Federal Agencies and Justice Department with OBAMA APPOINTED CRIMINAL MINIONS!

    • Tom

      That was tried once. It was called “The Civil War”.

      • DonP727

        Don’t forget the Tenth Amendment. Since the Constitution does not give the government power to regulate marriage it is left to the states.

        • Harry

          Umm its not outside the constitution. All men are created equal. Equal protection for all. Yet Gays before this did not have equal rights. Straight people could marry and divorce all day long. Yet Gays can’t. The supreme court just made the constitution apply. All people should have they same freedom. So your 10th Amendment argument doesn’t apply. Look to another amendment.

          • David

            Harry, you’re making a mistake that I’ve heard many times over the past week. You’re assuming that equal protection under the Constitution automatically affords the right to gays to be married in all states. But as the minority opinion pointed out, no such right exists, or has ever existed in the Constitution. We all enjoy lots of “rights” granted by the Constitution but almost all of these can be abridged by circumstances. We have the right to bear arms, but not any arms…try carrying around a grenade launcher. We have the right to free speach, but can’t yell “fire” in a crowded theater. We can’t deny anyone the right to vote based race and other criteria, but we make exceptions for convicted felons. If a state enacts a law to allow gays to be married, the Supreme Court can uphold that law by saying it’s constitutional, which they done on numerous occasions. But that’s different from what they did last week. The Supreme Court extended the idea of equal marriage rights into states that have never accepted this concept. Marriage is not an enumerated federal right or privilege under the Constitution; therefore it falls under each state to enact their own laws, which they have been doing for over 200 years. For example, states individually establish rules regarding concealed carry of firearms. Does this ruling mean that the newly found right of concealed carry, which a majority of states have allowed, should now be automatically extended to all states? That’s the logic behind this ruling. Regardless how you personally feel about gay marriage, this is a dangerous ruling by the Court.

          • Tannim

            The dissent is wrong. Equal Protection Clause applies across the board, as well as the Full Faith and Credit Clause

          • Conservative

            Antonin Scalia says the equal protection clause doesn’t apply and he graduated Magna Cum Laude from Harvard Law School. Please tell us your resumé?

          • Conservative

            Where did you go to law school? Antonin Scalia graduated Magna Cum Laude from Harvard Law. He says the14th doesn’t apply at all in this case.

          • txsaint

            Um….Kagan and Kenndy also went to Harvard Law and also graduated Magna Cum Laude. They says it does apply in this case. Hmmm. What to do.
            Sotomayor went to Yale and was editor of the Yale Law Journal. Breyer was Harvard Law and Oxford University. Ginsburg was first in her class at Columbia Law School. Kennedy was also Harvard Law, same honors as Scalia.

            Thomas, Alito, and Roberts also have impressive credentials.

            But they should. They are all among the smartest judges in our nation. Scalia’s opinion doesn’t matter any more than anyone else’s. Law is not black and white. If it were, we wouldn’t need lawyers.

            What matters is that one of the justices appointed by republicans voted for same sex marriage. This was not just a group of Democratic appointees making decisions for everyone else. This was a collaborative decision by Democratic appointees (four) and one republican appointee. It would have been nice had there been more republicans on board like with Obamacare, but 5-4 is still victory.

            So yes, Scalia is a smart guy. They are all smart. But his opinion is no more valid than anyone else’s. The only thing that matters is what the majority says.

          • Conservative

            Swing and a miss big guy. Nice story though. Kagan and Kennedy weren’t Magna Cum Laude. Everything after the first lie is largely ignored by the general populace.

          • txsaint

            You do realize, right, that there’s this thing called the internet where you can do things like look at cats and find information really quickly?

            “The third woman to serve of the Court, Justice Kagan is a native of New York City. She received an A.B., summa cum laude, from Princeton University in 1981. She attended Oxford University as Princeton’s Daniel
            M. Sachs Graduating Fellow, where she received an M. Phil. Following Oxford, she attended Harvard Law School, graduating magna cum laude in 1986. She served as the supervising editor of the Harvard Law Review. – supremefindlaw.com

            Kennedy was cum laude, my bad.

            Too bad his opinion counts as much as Scalia.

          • Conservative

            …Probably should have researched first, instead of after you were proved wrong. I think Liberals hope no one will ever check their story. Liberals hate facts. LOL

          • txsaint

            You said Kagan was not Magna Cum Laude. She was, which is why I posted the information. Can you not read?

            But that’s another difference between me and you. When liberals and scientists are wrong, we admit it. When conservatives and religious zealots are wrong, they cling to their bad information like a life preserver.

            It’s like climate change. 99% of scientists say one thing but you find the one Exxon scientist who agrees with you and that becomes your platform.

            Still, gays are getting married as we speak. Has your head exploded ? Are you nervously waiting for the Rainbow police to take you away to be gay married?

            Here is the difference between Dems and Repubs in the last four Supreme Court cases:

            Democratic wins:

            Affordable health care for all
            Same marriage rights for everyone.

            Republican wins:

            Drugs which make prisoners feel as if they are being burned alive are ruled constitutional.

            Rules regarding limiting mercury emissions from coal plants scrapped.

            But don’t worry. When you get sick from mercury poisoning, at least you can’t be denied care thanks to Obamacare.

            Perhaps you can tell me more about how that opinion was also wrong? I’ll get the popcorn.

          • Conservative

            you are such an angry person. I won’t debate with an angry person. For the record I couldn’t care less if gays get married. I care a great deal about the will of the people being usurped by an unconstitutional Supreme Court. Four of the nine best judges in the world agree with me. 5 agree with you. That’s democracy. as far as liberals admitting they are wrong, I strongly disagree with that statement. Liberals will never admit when they are wrong. 99 percent of scientist absolutely do not agree on climate change. That statement makes you look completely foolishas far as affordable healthcare for all is concerned, who the hell told you it was affordable? It’s the most expensive proposition ever created. I had cheaper health care before this monstrosity..you have a great day sir. I will no longer continue a discussion with a. brainwashed liberal.

          • txsaint

            Exactly. YOU had cheaper insurance. It’s all about you and not the greater good of our nation.No wonder you’re a republican.

            Back to my brainwashing……

          • Conservative

            you would believe that my cheap insurance was a gift from an almighty God. The truth is I work my ass off for it. The problem with liberals like you is you are unemployable, uneducated and foolish therefore you can’t provide your own insurance. Are you at least smart enough to realize that you’re advocating for the greater good it is actually communism?

          • txsaint

            I have three degrees. I’m employed and in school. :^) But it’s sweet of you to worry.

            Happy Fourth of July.

            Sure.. Puff-puff-give. Did you win the Heisman too?

          • txsaint

            It’s sad that you think advanced degrees are as rare as Heisman trophies.

          • txsaint

            I am going to be serious here for a second. if you need a degree or if you want to work on your masters, there are tons of outlets to do that these days, many that are designed for people who work full time. you are never too old to go back to school and if you are young, then what are you waiting for?

            Ok, , you may now continue with the stereotypical insults.

          • Conservative

            It’s sad that you think it’s okay for me to pay your way. Are you a professional student? LOL

          • FrenchKiss

            It’s sad that you think advanced degrees confer some sort of expertise and cache.

          • Conservative

            Three degrees and still in school? Are you ever actually going to try and contribute to Society or are you going to be a perpetual leach? No wonder you want me to buy you insurance. You sound like a complete idiot.

          • txsaint

            I live in Texas! I have to work full time just to pay taxes to take care of my red state conservative brethren. I know, I know, facts are like kryptonite to conservatives.

            But its not your fault. You were probably home schooled, you poor thing. You probably never learned that red states soak up all the blue state taxes. If it weren’t for us, red states would be last in education and last in healthc…..hey, WAIT a sec. What ARE you doing with all of our blue state money, anyway?

          • txsaint

            Bwaaaahhhaaaaaa!!! Every university professor in the world would laugh you out of the classroom if you tried presenting that as “research.” Do you really know NOTHING about independent, peer-reviewed data? Valid research? This isn’t even fun anymore. It was cute for awhile but your jokes never change and your “facts” are all shallow sound bites.

            I’m leaving now for my Obamacare Gay Marriage USA World Cup Victory party. Be careful driving home. Don’t let progress run you over. :^)

            It’s all about working for what you have you dumbass….not having the government mandating theft from your paycheck to pay for some sorry assed loafer who expects the government to support him! If obamacare is so good , then why in the hell wasn’t Obama and his family the first one on the list?

          • txsaint

            I hope you don’t kiss your mother with that mouth.

          • DGJC

            Obamacare was insituted for those who have no health care, stupid. Funny how you rightwingers don’t like socialist programs, yet no GOP congressmen refuse their government provided health care. They’re idiots and hypocrites.

          • FrenchKiss

            Wrong again. You claim to have a PhD, teach at a university, and published a book in Mandarin called “Kiss My Ass”, yet you have no idea what you are talking about. Every member of Congress is exempt from Obamacare. That was written into the law by the Democrats. You’re the idiot.

          • DGJC

            The point is, idiot, that Congressmen/women get their health care from the government. God, you’re stupid.

          • FrenchKiss

            Back to ad hominem attacks. How very educated of you.

          • DGJC

            Ad homimen attacks? Hell no! I was speaking the truth. Why do you conservatives complain about government involvement in health care at the very same moment that you take the government run health care program you complain about?

          • DGJC

            1 Yep, I have a Ph D.
            2 Yep, I have taught at four universities coast to coast.
            3 nope, my book is not titled “Kiss my Ass.” Yes, one of books has been translated into Mandarin, and not by me. I speak five languages, none of which is Chinese.
            4 you’re stupid, because you believed number three.

          • FrenchKiss

            Humor eluded your PhD brain. Oh well.

          • DGJC

            So, I take it your Republican Congressmen should be turning down the health care they get from the government? You’re against government involvement in health care, correct? I can also assume they will refuse their social security checks after they retire. Otherwise, they are hypocrites.

          • FrenchKiss

            Focus on the fact that you said the GOP are hypocrites, yet the Democrats excluded themselves from Obama care. Or did that go over your Brilliant PhD brain?

          • DGJC

            Which Democrats excluded themselves from government health care? Do tell, genius.

          • DGJC

            For the record: I’m way left of the Democrats and Obama on this issue. I think the health care industry should be completely shut down. They are crocks, every one of them. I think the health care industry should be controlled by the government so we don’t end up paying $50 for an aspirin. It’s all due to the greedy rightwingers that the health care industry is such a sham. We have the worst health care in the world. Brazil has better health care than we do, and so does Cuba. People come to Cuba from around the globe to get better quality health care, while ordinary Cubans don’t have anything to eat. At least they are guaranteed health care. More than we can say for our country. We are a disgrace to the world because we are the only industrialized nation where the government doesn’t provide health care for its population. Pathetic…

          • DGJC

            If America’s health care system is so great, please tell me why I personally know people who’ve gone to Mexico and Thailand to have operations they cannot afford in our country. They will get better treatment, on top of it.

            Marriage has been deemed as a basic civil right back during the Loving V

            Yes, but they also pooped in chamber pots and outhouses 200 years ago, too. The founding fathers weren’t all-knowing, or anything.

          • drgreig

            they also had slaves. women couldn’t vote, only white men. the seperation of church and state applies to even “christians”, no matter how much you whine about your rights being taken away. people are leaving the church in part because of bigots like you. reread the words of Jesus, then open your heart and love your neighbors as Jesus says!

          • magormissabib

            here we go again with the misdirection. being a woman or being black is an immutable God given characteristic not a conduct. Homoxesuality is a conduct. Nothing in the constitution guarantees all conducts are equal, not by a mile. Dont you worry your f@g-@ss about Christs Church. The Church will survive when this pervert nation is a smouldering heap of rubble when CHRIST rains down fire and brimstone on it like he did Sodom.

          • Vonduit

            First.. there is no separation of church and state found in the constitution, it’s found in the Danbury letters written by Thomas Jefferson. Second, you don’t know me and to call me a bigot for staying an opinion shows just who the bigot really is. Third, people are leaving the church because they are excepting any and every ki d of thing that comes along. And last, I do love my neighbor..but I am never going to agree with men with men and women with women. If you would open your eyes and heart…you will see Jesus don’t agree either…you bigot…

            Funny how ignorant you and the founding fathers were. Do you think slavery is OK? They did. They also thought that voting on civil rights was immoral and unacceptable, which is why the courts exist in the first place.
            By the way my marriage is now legal in all 50 states, plus US territories. My marriage is superior to yours:

            HOMOSEXUAL COUPLES HAPPIER

            As far as happiness is concerned, homosexual couples seem to be happier than heterosexual couples. A study made by researchers at the University of Washington, San Diego State University and the University of Vermont, and published in “Developmental Psychology”, focused on how sexual orientation and legal status impacted relationship quality.

            The study was made on 65 male and 138 female homosexual couples with civil union, 23 male and 61 female homosexual couples with no civil union and 55 heterosexual married couples, over a three-year follow-up. One spouse of each heterosexual couple was a sibling to a partner of a civil union couple, and the couples were comparable in what concerns race/ethnicity and age.

            Homosexual couples, no matter their civil union status, appeared to be more satisfied with their relationships than married heterosexual couples, reporting more positive feelings toward their partners and decreased conflict in comparison with heterosexual pairs. It seems that societal pressures and norms, besides the legal status as a couple, force heterosexual couples to remain together, even if unhappy.

            http://news.softpedia.com/news/Gay-and-Lesbian-Families-Are-Happier-than-Heterosexual-Ones-77094.shtml

            COUPLES WITHOUT CHILDREN HAVE HAPPIER RELATIONSHIPS

            Couples without children have happier marriages, according to one of the biggest studies ever of relationships in Britain. Childless men and women are more satisfied with their relationships and more likely to feel valued by their partner, the research project by the Open University found.

            http://www.theguardian.com/society/2014/jan/13/childless-couples-happier

            GAYS HAVE LOWER DIVORCE RATES

            Australia: According to the Bureau of Statistics, the median length of marriage before separation in the ACT was 9.4 years with most couples divorcing almost 13 years after saying ”I do”.

            But the probability that a traditional marriage will end in divorce is about 33 per cent.

            Dr Gordon said early indications showed that gay couples were staying together longer. She attributed this to the lack of expectation to getting hitched and the conscious decision to do so.

            ”There are very few [terminations] because people have thought it through very carefully and understand the implications. … they are actually thinking very hard about the significance and importance of making it work.”

            GAY FAMILIES MORE COHESIVE AND HEALTHIER

            The largest study of children raised by same-sex parents conducted at Melbourne University in Australia found that children raised by same-sex parents experienced greater family cohesion (stronger bonds and relationships among immediate family members) and greater overall health than children raised by mixed-sex parents.

            The study also found that children raised by same-sex parents had no difference in self-esteem, emotional behavior and time spent with parents than children raised by mixed-sex parents. Children of gays and lesbians have less mental illness.

            REASONS HETEROSEXUALS AREN’T GAY
            (They’re unhappy)
            Teen pregnancy
            Abortion
            Abuse of women (1 in 4 women is abused)
            1 in 5 women is raped
            Unwanted children
            98 percent of child molesters are heterosexual males
            20 million girls have been sexually molested by their heterosexual fathers
            Heterosexuals have worse sex less often
            Heterosexuals divorce at a rate twice that of gay men
            Men and women do not communicate well, they are incompatible as partners
            Heterosexual vaginal sex introduced AIDS to humanity

            This man has been released from the prison and bondage of the heterosexual lifestyle. This is reason to celebrate! Millions of ex-straights are living happier and healthier and more productive lives in the homosexual lifestyle!! You too can have the same.

          • Shirley Ann McKinney

            Harry, definition of marriage: the legally or formally recognized union of a man and a woman. and always has been. Gays and lesbians should be entitled to a Civil Union with all the benefits but a marriage is between a Man and Woman .

          • Tom

            Shirley, like I asked earlier, why are you trying to put a biblical definition to marriage when that crosses the line of separation of church and state? I need to point out that the US is NOT a christian nation.

          • magormissabib

            read a history book. the forefathers looked to the bible when writing laws and the BIBLE provided the rubrics for the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.

          • Tom

            YOU need to read a history book. There are treaties that the US signed with approval of congress that clearly stat “The US is not a Christian Nation. It doesn’t matter what you say about the Declaration of Independence, The Constitution, Bill of Rights. They may have some basis in religion, but religion is NOT apart of those documents.

          • David Padilla

            what history book, modern ones the first schools used the bible for instruction. all the writings of the founding point to christianity even thomas paine.

          • Tom

            If you only rely on the bible as your history book. We are done here.

          • Upward Trend

            Why do you say that? How about every written document of the time. There is entirely too much proof that this Nation is founded within Christian principles and cast in every document and monument. Where did you get your education? These are the most basic civics academia of the United States. You should stop here and actually learn the history of the USA. You need to read their documentation and basis of doctrine.

          • magormissabib

            You are correct. Read Washingtons Farewell address: religion ws so much a part of their thinking that it was inseperable from their world views and their politics. To ignore that is to be a liar.

            Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity,
            religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man
            claim the tribute of patriotism, who should labor to subvert these
            great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of
            men and citizens. The mere politician, equally with the pious man, ought
            to respect and to cherish them. A volume could not trace all their
            connections with private and public felicity. Let it simply be asked:
            Where is the security for property, for reputation, for life, if the
            sense of religious obligation desert the oaths which are the instruments
            of investigation in courts of justice ? And let us with caution indulge
            the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion.
            Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education on minds
            of peculiar structure, reason and experience both forbid us to expect
            that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle,

            Can it be that Providence has not connected the permanent felicity of a
            nation with its virtue ? The experiment, at least, is recommended by

            impossible by its vices? George Washington.

            Wrong dummy, Youre speaking of the treaty of tripoli and that part was removed. I repeat Our forefather looked to the Bible , they were ALL christian men who beleived basically the same things had basically the SAME world view. To try and twist their words to pretend that by liberty they meant the abomination of homosexuality is just a lie.

            You have not read a history book that wasn’t rewritten lately. The US is derived from Christianity and no other. You may not like it, but that is FACT bro! George Mason fathered the Bill of Rights. He was a deeply devout Christian. Come on man, learn history. This is a Christian nation. The forefathers, however, did not want the new nation to have forced draconian dictatorship rules. Obama represents everything the forefathers were avoiding. Have you ever seen the top of the US Supreme court? Who adorns that building exactly, and precisely what is he holding?

            “The day will come when the mystical generation of Jesus by the Supreme Being in the womb of a virgin, will be classed with the fable of the generation of Minerva in the brain of Jupiter. … But we may hope that the dawn of reason and freedom of thought in these United States will do away with all this artificial scaffolding….” – Thomas Jefferson

            “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion…” – U.S. Constitution

            The founding fathers left out “God” for a reason. It was not an accident. They had seen what government-sanctioned religion could do and they wanted no part of it. It’s why the Confederate Constitution DID include direct reference to God.

          • magormissabib

            You edited out this part:

            “The truth is, that the greatest enemies of the doctrine of Jesus are those, calling themselves the expositors of them, who have perverted them to the structure of a system of fancy absolutely incomprehensible, and without any foundation in his genuine words….” [which continues into the quote you cite]

            He wasn’t against Jesus but against those who pervert the Christian doctrine.

            He also said:

            “Of all the systems of morality, ancient or modern, which have come under my observation, none appear to me so pure as that of Jesus. He who follows this steadily need not, I think, be uneasy, although he cannot comprehend the subtleties and mysteries erected on his doctrines by those who, calling themselves his special followers and favorites, would make him come into the world to lay snares for all understandings but theirs.” — Letter to WIlliam Canby (September 18, 1813)

            No nation has ever existed or been governed without religion. Nor can

            Tom, it’s a war of Semantics. Marriage is a religious term.

          • Tom

            Yes, I will acquiesce to that statement. Marriage is a religious term. Personally speaking, I would rather see gays use a different term. Civil Union would be best, but it must have the EXACT same benefits as marriage. Since most civil union laws do NOT provide the same benefits as marriage, they latched onto marraige term. So, yes, semantics. But, times change the meaning of words all the time. So, if you want to use religion as a test for a marriage, then what would a couple have if they were married by a JP? No church involved, if it is still a marriage, then your argument for marriage to be religious is moot.

          • GTElmore

            I noted Saturday, in the wake of the monumental mess stirred up by the comically goofy Supreme Court majority that if I want to get water from my well to my garden, I still have to line the hoses up male-to-female. Apparently nothing about reality was changed by the “majority opinion.” Presumably, each of our cells – even the cells of flaming gays and Supreme Court justices – are still immutably characterized by 46 chromosomes in 23 pairs – and in each pair, one from father, a male, and from mother, a female.

            Seems as though reality doesn’t give a rip about the daft pronouncements of a bunch of people in black robes.

          • Rick Hunter

            No, gay marriages do not deserve all the same benefits, and are impossible to have those benefits. The union of a man and a woman is a gift from God. There are blessings from God, that only God can give. He will bless a traditional union, but he won’t bless a homosexual union. The Government can’t strong arm God into blessing your sinful lifestyle.

          • Rick Hunter

            Obama and his administration doesn’t get to tell Americans if their nation is Christian or not. The people decide whether this is a Christian nation and the people say it is. The founding fathers were mostly Christian, and gave glory to God in their speeches. The current politically correct lefty lib powerhouse is a paper tiger, and you will get exposed for the fraudulent criminals you are. Trying to force change, should be tantamount to treason against the republic. The LBGT needs to have charges laid against them, the rainbow flag needs to be recognized as a fascist logo, and it should never be waved in a fashion that goes against the Covenant promise God made with all of us.

          • David Shimshon Heller

            G*D created marriage there for the government has no business in the matter because of separation of Church and State. What should be done is a marriage contract created between the spouses and that contract submitted to the county clerk to make the contract legally binding.

          • Vonduit

            There is no church and state clause in the constitution. God created marriage between a man and a woman, first because it would be called fornication without it and second ..because he knew you deviant minded sodomites would destroy a sacred institution he created. My question is…how in the hell can any man claim to give you the right to marry? No matter how hard you try…..you will NEVER change the definition in God’s eyes…….nor mine…

          • DGJC

            Marriage has zero to do with any gods. In France and Germany religious weddings aren’t legal and clergy cannot participate in real marriages. All marriages are non-religious and secular as they should be. Man invented marriage and it existed long before your religion was concocted. The Catholic Church once banned marriage because it was considered a Pagan ritual.

          • Mike Tooch

          • txsaint

            You’ve probably seen this letter to the editor before but it deserves to be seen again.
            “Many letters have been sent to the Valley News concerning the homosexual menace in Vermont. I am the mother of a gay son and I’ve taken enough from you good people.

            I’m tired of your foolish rhetoric about the “homosexual agenda” and your allegations that accepting homosexuality is the same thing as advocating sex with children. You are cruel and ignorant. You have been robbing me of the joys of motherhood ever since my children were tiny.

            My firstborn son started suffering at the hands of the moral little thugs from your moral, upright families from the time he was in the first grade. He was physically and verbally abused from first grade straight through high school because he was perceived to be gay.

            He never professed to be gay or had any association with anything gay, but he had the misfortune not to walk or have gestures like the other boys. He was called “fag” incessantly, starting when he was 6.

            In high school, while your children were doing what kids that age should be doing, mine labored over a suicide note, drafting and redrafting it to be sure his family knew how much he loved them. My sobbing 17-year-old tore the heart out of me as he choked out that he just couldn’t bear to continue living any longer, that he didn’t want to be gay and that he couldn’t face a life without dignity.

            You have the audacity to talk about protecting families and children from the homosexual menace, while you yourselves tear apart families and drive children to despair. I don’t know why my son is gay, but I do know that God didn’t put him, and millions like him, on this Earth to give you someone to abuse. God gave you brains so that you could think, and it’s about time you started doing that.

            At the core of all your misguided beliefs is the belief that this could never happen to you, that there is some kind of subculture out there that people have chosen to join. The fact is that if it can happen to my family, it can happen to yours, and you won’t get to choose. Whether it is genetic or whether something occurs during a critical time of fetal development, I don’t know. I can only tell you with an absolute certainty that it is inborn.

            If you want to tout your own morality, you’d best come up with something more substantive than your heterosexuality. You did nothing to earn it; it was given to you. If you disagree, I would be interested in hearing your story, because my own heterosexuality was a blessing I received with no effort whatsoever on my part. It is so woven into the very soul of me that nothing could ever change it. For those of you who reduce sexual orientation to a simple choice, a character issue, a bad habit or something that can be changed by a 10-step program, I’m puzzled. Are you saying that your own sexual orientation is nothing more than something you have chosen, that you could change it at will? If that’s not the case, then why would you suggest that someone else can?

            A popular theme in your letters is that Vermont has been infiltrated by outsiders. Both sides of my family have lived in Vermont for generations. I am heart and soul a Vermonter, so I’ll thank you to stop saying that you are speaking for “true Vermonters.”

            You invoke the memory of the brave people who have fought on the battlefield for this great country, saying that they didn’t give their lives so that the “homosexual agenda” could tear down the principles they died defending. My 83-year-old father fought in some of the most horrific battles of World War II, was wounded and awarded the Purple Heart.

            He shakes his head in sadness at the life his grandson has had to live. He says he fought alongside homosexuals in those battles, that they did their part and bothered no one. One of his best friends in the service was gay, and he never knew it until the end, and when he did find out, it mattered not at all. That wasn’t the measure of the man.

            You religious folk just can’t bear the thought that as my son emerges from the hell that was his childhood he might like to find a lifelong companion and have a measure of happiness. It offends your sensibilities that he should request the right to visit that companion in the hospital, to make medical decisions for him or to benefit from tax laws governing inheritance.

            How dare he? you say. These outrageous requests would threaten the very existence of your family, would undermine the sanctity of marriage.

            You use religion to abdicate your responsibility to be thinking human beings. There are vast numbers of religious people who find your attitudes repugnant. God is not for the privileged majority, and God knows my son has committed no sin.

            The deep-thinking author of a letter to the April 12 Valley News who lectures about homosexual sin and tells us about “those of us who have been blessed with the benefits of a religious upbringing” asks: “What ever happened to the idea of striving . . . to be better human beings than we are?”

            Indeed, sir, what ever happened to that?”

          • LibertyDwells

            Homosexuals have always had the same rights as everyone else: To marry a member of the opposite sex. Absolutely equal. NOW they have a special privilege that nobody else wants or will use.

          • magormissabib

            Fags need to sue the government because you cannot bear children either. Thats not fair and equal either is it you idiot.

          • catholicchristian

            Gays did, in fact, have equal rights – gay men could still marry gay women, and vice versa. There are (despite the SCOTUS ruling) no rights defined by any document which give anyone rights to marry in any other way. What gays wanted, and have now achieved, is not even so much “special rights” as the destruction of the concept of marriage as a definite thing. At this point, given that the “right” which was defined is that “people who love each other can marry,” pretty much anyone is going to be able to define pretty much any “love” relationship under the shredded remnants of the “marriage” tent. Sic transit gloria Americana.

          • Kevin Tabor

            Bs a gay man can marry a woman the same as a straight man can. Sounds equal to me

          • Conservative

            Do pedophiles have equal protection? What about Polygamists? Your argument just doesn’t hold up.

          • ShockedOneInAzSun

            This has opened the door for every kind of perversion known to mankind to claim equality, legality, and federal government recognition.

          • Rick Hunter

            Like unto the Days of Noah shall the age of the coming of the Son of man be.

          • GTElmore

            Yep. “Gays” have the same rights, alright. If they’re alive, their very cells testify as to why: In each of those cells as in each of anybody elses’ – 46 chromosomes in 23 pairs – and in each pair, one from father, a male, and from mother, a female. Pretenders, cross-dressers, etc., etc. need not apply. That’s the immutable law of humanity. That’s simply the way it is — even for “Supreme Court justices.”

            Significantly predating the existence of the Supreme Court of the United States, Jesus of Nazareth explained it quite succinctly in the first few verses of Matthew 19: “Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.”

            Not equipped to become “one flesh?” Well, then – you don’t qualify to be “married.”

          • Merrill Henderson

            No where in the Constitution does it say, “All men are created equal”, that is a quote from the Declaration of Indepedence. The Declaration is not the law of the land, merely the written thoughts of a nation used to show all other nations of the world at the time why we chose to severe our ties with Great Britain and launch our Republic. As David quite aptly states, marriage (either straight or gay) is not a “right” that is enumerated anywhere in our Constitution. Although our Constitution is called a “living” document because it can be changed periodically by Amendments, those Amendments can come from only 2 places, either Congress or by a referendum of States, either way, once proposed a Constitutional Amendment must then be passed by ratification of at least 36 states. Neither the President or Supreme Court can add what amounts to an amendment.

        • Tannim

        Texas is a Republic first and a state second.(i.e. Pretty ironclad constitution.) This WILL be a worthy challenge. Since so many states have the ***OPTION*** to follow immigration laws, deportation, present VALID ID, and many other FEDERAL laws, precedent enforcements might win out anyway.

        • Harry

          Just because Texas claims itself as a republic doesnt really apply. When they ratified to join the Union they said they would follow federal law. Well Republic of Texas and D.C you have to follow the law.

          • sgb1

            we also had the right to leave the union and the right to divide into five smaller states, which would give us considerable power in Congress, particularly the senate.

          • Tom

            Texas does NOt have the right just to divide itself into five states. The only way that could be done is with congressional approval from DC.

          • LibertyDwells

            Actually it’s the only thing that applies. Texas can do as it wants because it can stand alone. The only reason Illegal Aliens are even a problem right now is because Texas has allowed fedgov to restrain them.

            OTOH, fedgov is very limited in what it can do in response. Military assault on Texas would break the entire Union. Financial assault is irrelevant, since Texas would be putting out no money to fedgov and keeping all its own (and I do mean its own new currency) to itself.

            None of that should be taken as an effort to downplay the repercussions of any split, in any form. It would be chaotic. It’s just an observation that fedgov in no way holds an upper hand here. DC is “in charge” because Texas has thus far allowed it. Nothing more.

        • Tom

          Texas is NOT a republic anymore. Texas voted for statehood on October 13, 1945. At that point, it ceased to be a Republic and became a state. This was further proven with the Supreme Court case Texas v. White in 1869.

            For condemnation of others to hell?
            There is a prayer spoken by Jesus showing his students how to approach God in prayer. We all know the one that begins”Our father, who art in heaven.”

            It shows how we ask forgiveness:
            Forgive us our trespasses AS WE FORGIVE THOSE WHO
            TRESPASS AGANST US.
            We ask to receive the exact forgiveness that we had given.

            What the LGBT (I’m being PC here…) community fails to realize is that just when a lot of Americans were starting to feel that the time for recognizing unions between same-sex partners was fast approaching, the SCOTUS reaches out and polarizes both sides. Has the same effect as Abe Lincoln’s election in 1860. We will soon see how their decision forces the hand of states like Texas….

      • Harry

        People really forget history and spout support the constitution all day long when it suits them. Yet when the constitution clearly states that all men are created equal people like to forget that part. They like to never let us forget about the right to bear arms but oh gay rights forget that. How is that equal. Straight men get to marry women yet the other way around nope. Thats not equal people. You want your guns and religious freedom you have to allow others to have their rights protected as well. So N.r.a and religious organizations give up your right to freedom I give you gays cant marry. Deal? I thought not.

          Homosexuals always had the same rights as everyone else: To marry a member of the opposite sex. The special privilege given to 3% of the population to marry their own gender is NOT equality. I expect that does not fit your version of reality but, really, that doesn’t matter.

The election of pro-abolition Abraham Lincoln over pro-status-quo Stephen Douglas and the South’s candidate John Breckinridge, was the final straw for the Southern states. When the predominantly white North forced the hand of South Carolina, after many Southerners warned that the only step to save the institution of slavery, which at that time was essential to the economy of not only the South, but the entire nation as a whole, would be secession. In fact, some historians are of the opinion that if the Union had not announced its intention to seize military installations in the South, forcing the Ft. Sumter attack, and subsequently steered away from Civil war, that the North’s economy would have been wrecked within 12 months. Only the onset of war and the economic boom that war always provides saved the North from ruin.

      And guess what??? Except for the holdout states, 37 states have done just what you typed in ALL CAPS. Apparently you think typing in all caps gets your point across better. It doesn’t. In fact, it just makes me want to turn around and ignore you. But before I do, let me just tell you this: if you ever try to give away my rights by popular vote, don’t expect to hear from me. God will beat me to the punch. And She’ll have some loud words to use to tell you why. Go away.

  • Render unto Caesar that which is Caesars (Law of the land) Churches sure love the Government Tax exempt status. How about giving that up too? Typical hypocrites picking and choosing which laws to follow and use.

    • pastrami

      Caesar hasn’t gotten this one right just yet. Caesar’s still fighting over it, as our Constitution reigns, not the Supreme Court. State’s rights still mean something, & marriage is STATE business. Think THAT’S not comin’ right up?
      Who in hell are YOU calling a hypocrite?

      • I must have missed that part of the Constitution that defined marriage.

        • Tired O’Libs

            funny thing it doesn’t. Not one way or the other. The constitution has nothing about immigration what so ever.

          • Tired O’Libs

            You are right and it says nothing about marriage either, no does it say anything about abortion. This is about states rights. However the brain dead like Dagent think seem to think you can pick and choose which laws you enforce and which you don’t!

          • WTF do Illegals have to do with the marriage issue. I am against them also. I remember when Blacks and whites could not marry each other also so should we take that right away from them? What about people with birth defects? Should we ban them from getting married? You sound like a real tool.

          • Tired O’Libs

            Another crybaby liberal! You re the one talking about hypocrites and enforcing the law of the land! Another liberal HYPOCRITE! Look in the mirror !! “Render unto Caesar” ! I have a feeling youre all for gay marriage so it will open the door your four legged friends!

          • Your playground name calling is so effective I have totally changed my views and you are my new hero. NOT. I am against any and all marriage since it is nothing but a money making scam to get permission to learn to hate someone you love. Why does anyone need a piece of paper and a fancy ceremony, to give someone love and security? Make a promise and keep it.

          • Tired O’Libs

            It is all about hypocrisy and you are a poster child! As far as the name calling read you first post moron!!

      • Harry

        When a law contradicts the Constitution then it becomes a federal matter. For instance Straight people can marry and Gays couldn’t. How is that equal? Yet the constitution clearly states that all people should have equal rights. Not just straight Christians. Then it does apply. Otherwise if states got to make the decision on which Federal laws they enforce the South would of still had slaves and that was the same argument that those states used to have slavery. You remember history which side won? Again oh Texas has weapons yea well the United States has bigger. Which it will never come down to that. The Attorney General will lose his job like the guy in Florida and Mississippi because they did the same thing. Didnt follow federal law.

      That was one of the most tortured attempts at logic I have ever seen.

    … ” The amendment did not add to the privileges and immunities of a citizen. It simply furnished an additional guaranty for the protection of such as he already had. … ” [pg 171]

    There is no God given RIGHT to buggery in a civil society, that was left to the dustbin of the history of hedonist societies such as Sodom and Gomorrah and the many others thought lost in the history of memories.

    The RIGHTS discussed in the Declaration of Independence and found reiterated in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights attached are DERIVED from God, NOT man.

    Extending a RIGHT to buggery, et al, is manifestly a man made right, and therefore is NO RIGHT AT ALL, but rather a corruption of authority destined to dissolve in its own putrid consequences.

    All you right wing and teabaggers, please answer this question.

    Why is the GOP trying to push a religious definition of marriage onto the US? The US was found on several principle and ideals. One of them was the separation of church and state. The US is NOT a christian nation and has never been one. This has been reinforced by several international documents, the big one being “The Treaty of Tripoli”. So, in a nation that is supposed to be secular and not affiliated with any one religion, is the GOP trying to push upon the US a BIBLICAL definition of marriage?

    Using the 14th amendment, SCOTUS was correct in their ruling. Section 1. of the 14th amendment states “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws..”

    Is that NOt what banning gay marriage does? Is doesn’t say “Except for gays.”

    So again I ask, why is the GOP trying to force upon the US a religious definition of marriage?

    Ok, so it goes against your beliefs. Newsflash! If you work in the government, you need to check your beliefs at the door.

    • LibertyDwells

      Please show your “Separation Doctrine” within the 1st Amendment.

      Marriage IS and always was a religious institution. Government licensing is a tax and inheritance issue. That is also where the entire drive for some kind of civil union, a legal contract for financial and medical purposes, began. Then the social engineers decided they had to use the label of marriage.

      Homosexuals always had the exact same rights as everyone else: To marry a member of the opposite sex. Now they have an additional special privilege. that 97% of the population has no interest in.

        Thomas Jefferson used that phrase as a description of the 1st Amendment. In case you do not know or failed to remember, Thomas Jefferson IS a founding father, as a matter of fact, he wasn’t the only one that felt that way.

        By forcing religious values onto the people you are in fact violating the 1st Amendment by establishing a state sanction religion.

        Have you READ the 1st Amendment, the 9th Amendment, or the 14th Amendment? All of those play into this.

        • Conservative

          Jefferson talked about a “separation of church and state” in a letter he wrote to the Danbury Baptists long after the Constitution was written.

    • David Padilla

      you are definitevely wrong here I can qoute from every father and do you really think the american people at that time would allow for a non christian state being christians themselves to be established. you got your ideals from where I just do not know, wrong, but having the books and taking the time to read. Ben franklin once wrote “A nation founded on christian principals would change the world!” you need to reread the whole passage of the 14th amendment In the very words of thomas Jefferson” My views are the result of a life of inquiry and reflection, and very different from the anti-christian system(address to all liberals and you) imputed to me by those(this is you and liberalism) who know nothing of my opinions.” (short) ” I am a christian!”

      • Tom

        Explain the Treaty of Tripoli then where it clearly states the US is not a christian nation.

    • Conservative

      Answer this first… Why can’t a 40 year old man marry a 14 year old boy? By your definition they were born equal and guaranteed the same rights. Why can’t a man marry his son? Why can’t a man marry both sons? Why can’t a man have 3 wives?

      • Tom

        Look, you are drawing ridiculous comparisons.
        Man (or woman) can marry a 14 year old bot because he is not at the age of consent in the US. There are laws in the US that are there to protect kids. What I am talking about is two consenting adults. ADULTS. Children cannot consent, so therefore, that argument has no merit.

        Man could not marry his son, due to incest.

        Cousins can get married, depending upon the state, but no matter how you slice, twist, or turn it around, marrying your son/daughter is so wrong…right down to the genetic level.

        Why can’t a man have three wives? You got me there, I wouldn’t mindseeing that type of marriage on occasion.

        • Conservative

          You are completely missing the point Tom. The age of consent is arbitrary and based on someone’s moral compass. The laws against incest are arbitrary and based on someone’s moral compass. The laws against polygamy are completely arbitrary and based upon someone’s moral compass. Do you care to guess what the laws against homosexual marriage are based on? Those types of laws are all the same.

      How do you figure marriage is a Christian term? A couple does not have to be Christian to be married. Hindu’s get married, Buddhist’s marry, Muslims marry, Atheist’s marry. Communist countries sanctioned non-religious marriage. Marriage is not defined by religion but as a moral binding of 2 individuals for the main purpose of propulgating the species.

    It is a myth that homosexuality is considered to be an immutable characteristic such as gender or race. This has been done because it has been wrongfully considered as an equality issue, on par with the civil rights that blacks have suffered in their struggles to attain. It’s not, it is a behavior. It Psychiatric Diagnostic manual held it as a behavior disorder, such as kleptomania. As kleptos can’t help stealing, homosexuals can’t help being attracted to their gender. We the human race, have many flaws, but legalizing them is at best foolish, at worst, an attempt to squelch the rights of others. A number of years ago, New York’s school system attempted to shove down children’s throats, “Heather has two mommies”, and, “Daddy’s Roommate”. Trying to force children to accept homosexuality.

    • Meshuggah666

      Is that why homosexuality behavior has been documented in over 450 species to date?

    • DGJC

      You are the very definition of mentally retarded. Jesus….

    • DGJC

      By the way, the ex-gays disagree with you. Not only do they acknowledge they were born gay and it’s an innate and immutable characterstic similar to race and gender, but that’s what the top mental health and medical organizations also state. If homosexuality is a behavior, so is heterosexuality and at the very least homosexuality is more beneficial for society in that it produces no unwanted children. Being that the world’s population stands at eight billion, the last thing our planet needs is more humans.

    I will be the first to point out that this is a Humanistic Theocracy forced on the American people in an attempt to rewrite Biblical Authority which it can never do an foster contempt for the Biblical Authority in the Home.. forcing Religion to accept on the basis of equality it coming in the back door trying to rewrite Biblical Authority. The Supreme Court has no jurisdiction in Religion Read the Constitution. Congress shall make no law concerning religion or the establishment there of … it is an attempt to create a Humanistic Theocracy and legislate Religion which is forbidden.. force them to recognize what they have done.

    Texas how very unsurprising of them lol just let them succeed already and become the newest new Mexico in about a couple months . Another reason I’m glad I was raised to accept people and not judge those who may be different then me. Hate, ignorance and intolerance is defiently still being taught very well .

    I don’t think your religious freedom is being impeded when you are working for the state and it is your JOB REQUIREMENT to issue marriage licenses. If this somehow impedes your religious freedom then I’d suggest you get a different job maybe hobby lobby or chick fil a they fully support religious extremists who think that others rights don’t matter if they don’t fall under their gods rules…I’ve said it many times before if your going to be a religion extremist I would like to see you start stoning adulterers and divorced folks as well as stoning women and children for disobeying the men. Oh wait theses things are outdated and we recognize the inhumanity of these acts…so in admitting that you basically are picking and choosing what you listen to in the bible. Remember opinions are like assholes everyone has one but not everyone has to be one???…God bless you extremists may you one day realize the err in your ways and stop trying to dictate people lives to them based on your book written by men that are innately flawed and could very well have misinterpreted or altogether written what fit there agenda.

        Obviously you support homos and are probably one yourself. You will suffer the consequences when you meet your maker you sick freak.

        • DGJC

          Yep, I was born with the gift of homosexualiry, of course I support my own people. Do you think I oppose heterosexuality because I was born gay? You’re clearly an idiot.

        • DGJC

          My maker? I’ve met my parents, thanks. They are extremely proud of their gay son. Who wouldn’t be?

          • DGJC

            A heterosexual male who is violent? Didn’t see that coming…yawn. Violence is in your DNA. You were born to rape women, abuse children and commit mass shootings. It’s in your destiny.

          • DGJC

            Reported to Disqus for violent threat. A violation of terms of service

          • White Devil

            Haha…..oh now there going to delete my account. At the end of the day you still have a mental illness.

          • DGJC

            I don’t have the ability to delete your account, moron. I do have the ability to report your abuse to Disqus, which I’ve done. It’s their business now. I do not care. At the end of the day, I’m still intellectually superior to you, and that really bothers you. Not my problem.

      • White Devil

        You know what…I retract my previous statement. If you think it’s normal for two men to be together and you think that’s ok obviously you have a mental illness. You should really seek consoling and check yourself into a mental hospital. It’s unfortunate you have the sickness. Hopefully your parents forgive you.

        • DGJC

          You know what? It’s abnormal for a homosexual to be with an opposite sex partner, just as it’s abnormal for a left handed person to write with their right hand. You heterosexuals have such low cognitive functions that you can’t even figure that out. Eight percent of all male sheep are exclusively homosexual. I’m sorry you’re cognitively challenged, or are you mentally ill?
          Heterosexuals are sad people…. Get a life and stop worrying about the fact that some of us have the biological gift of homosexuality- and yes, it’s a gift.

          WHY ARE MALE HOMOSEXUALS CALLED “GAY?”
          Homosexuality is a biological gift:
          1 homosexual males have larger brains:
          http://content.time.com/time/health/article/0,8599,1815538,00.html
          2 homosexual men have higher cognitive functions, superior spatial memory and verbal skills:
          http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biology_and_sexual_orientation
          3 homosexual men earn more money and have more education than heterosexual men:
          http://www.usnews.com/news/articles/2013/03/01/gay-couples-more-educated-higher-income-than-heterosexual-couples
          4 homosexual men have better sex more often
          (no link required for that one!)
          5 homosexual men have larger pen ises than straight men per capita
          http://www.salon.com/1999/11/04/size

          Anyway you slice it, straight men come up “short” when compared with gay men. That’s why they are unhappy, and why 1 in 4 women is abused and 1 in 5 women is raped. 100 percent of mass shooters are heterosexual males, and 98 percent of child molesters, including those that molest boys, are heterosexual males. Do the math, people: straight men are very unhappy people. That’s why heterosexual men aren’t gay.

          • White Devil

            LMFAO….it’s your story. You can tell it however you wish. And if that’s what it takes to make yourself believe your not mentally ill then go for it. ?

          • DGJC

            Since I’m obviously superior to you in intellect and education level, you seem bent out of shape about it. I’m sorry I have a larger brain, a Ph D and have taught at four universities from New York City to San Francisco. Instead of complaining because I’ve done better in my life, did you see consider doing something to improve your deficiencies? I’m going to the gym to work on my hard body. Good luck watching football on TV. It will only make you fatter.

            What I find so hilarious is that you heterosexual idiots were too stupid to realize that your bans on gay marriage made it possible for us to achieve our goals that much quicker. Heterosexuals are dumb people.

          • DGJC

            I also have taught at four universities and have four published books on the worldwide market. One of them has been translated to Mandarin.

            So mature. Eyes roll. Do you think I haven’t been called names by immature heterosexual males in the past? Violence is in your DNA. It’s what you were born to do. Go molest a child, rape a woman or commit a mass shooting. Ask if I care, cause I don’t.

          • DGJC

            Eight times as many women have receptive anal sex as gay men. That means you’re either sexually inexperienced, or your biitch is getting her anal needs met elsewhere. Which is it?

            Homosexuals Molest Children At A Far Higher Rate Than Heterosexuals

            Homosexuals account for only 1-2% of our population based on current surveys. The National Opinion Research Center in 1992 found that 2.8% of men and 1.4% of women identified themselves as “homosexual” or “bisexual. A 1995 survey of 18-49-year-old men published by the Journal of Sex Research indicated that 2.6% of them had engaged in homosexual sex within the prior 12 months; 4% had had homosexual sex within the past five years. In other words, at least 98-99% of our population is heterosexual in orientation.

            Homosexual activists routinely claim that most child molesters are “heterosexual” males, thus shifting the focus away from their own very high rates of molestation. Since 98-99% of the population is heterosexual, it is technically correct to say that most molestations are done by heterosexuals. However, statistics indicate that homosexuals pose a far more serious threat to children than do heterosexuals.

            For example: In 1987, Dr. Stephen Rubin of Whitman College conducted a ten-state study of sex abuse cases involving school teachers. He studied 199 cases. Of those, 122 male teachers had molested girls, while 14 female teachers had molested boys. He also discovered that 59 homosexual male teachers had molested boys and four female homosexual teachers had molested girls. In other words, 32 percent of those child molestation cases involved homosexuals. Nearly a third of these cases come from only 1-2% of the population.

            Dr. Judith Reisman, in her book, Kinsey, Crimes & Consequences, describes the research done by Dr. Gene Abel. This researcher compared the molestation rates of self-confessed homosexual and heterosexual child molesters. In a sample of 153 homosexual molesters, they confessed to a total of 22,981 molestations. This is equivalent to 150 children per molester. Self-admitted heterosexual molesters admitted to 4,435 molestations. This comes to 19.8 victims per molester. Dr. Abel concluded that homosexuals “sexually molest young boys at an incidence that is occurring from five times greater than the molestation of girls.”

            This high rate of molestations by homosexuals is consistent with other studies conducted during the past several decades. Here are just a few studies that show homosexuals molesting children at epidemic rates:

            The Los Angeles Times conducted a survey in 1985 of 2,628 adults across the U.S. Of those, 27% of the women and 16% of the men had been sexually molested. Seven percent of the girls and 93% of the men had been molested by adults of the same sex. This means that 40% of child molestations were by homosexuals. (Los Angeles Times, August 25-6, 1985)

            In 1984, a Vermont survey of 161 adolescents who were sex offenders found that 35 of them were homosexuals (22%). (Wasserman, J., “Adolescent Sex Offenders—Vermont, 1984” Journal American Medical Association, 1986; 255:181-2)

            In 1991, of the 100 child molesters at the Massachusetts Treatment Center for Sexually Dangerous Persons, a third were heterosexual, a third were bisexual, and a third were homosexual. (Dr. Raymond Knight, “Differential Prevalence of Personality Disorders in Rapists and Child Molesters,” Eastern Psychological Association Conference, New York, April 12, 1991)

            Drs. Freund and Heasman of the Clark Institute of Psychiatry in Toronto reviewed two studies on child molesters and calculated that 34% and 32% of the sex offenders were homosexual. In cases these doctors had handled, 36% of the molesters were homosexuals. (Freund, K. “Pedophilia and Heterosexuality vs. Homosexuality,” Journal of Sex & Marital Therapy, 1984; 10:193-200)

            From these studies and many more, it is evident that homosexuals molest children at a far greater rate than do their heterosexual counterparts.While they comprise only 1-2% of the population, they are responsible for upwards of a third or more of all sexual molestations of children.

          • DGJC

            Yep, homosexual men have a very high propensity to being geniuses. One only need to look at the names below to confirm this:
            Famous homosexual men:
            1 Socrates
            2 Leonardo da Vinci
            3 Michaelangelo
            4 Tchaikovsky
            5 Alan Turing (who created modern computer science. We would not be communicating this way without the invention of this gay genius).
