limbaugh really isn't anyone's enemy though, he's just a reactionary attention whore that will reliably cry about anything that goes against his team.

Busting   Sun Tzu  on us. Still doesn't answer why they are true believers in what Rush has to say. But then there are a lot of cult leaders who have an un-explainable number of followers. I just want to get into the game.

you misunderstand my point.  Limbaugh is key to understanding how the GOP thinks.  he helps to shape their public policy and get the Republican party message out to the rank and file.  he's not the ONLY source of information mind you, merely one of the easier to follow.

like it or not, Limbaugh is a key part of the Republican attempt to shape their message.  that makes him worth paying attention too...from time to time at least.  I can't follow him every day, nor would I even if time permitted.

on a meta level, stop and think about it for a moment tho.  Limbaugh - as odious and foul as he may be - is a key part of the GOP public relations effort(s).  But stop and ponder that for a moment.  what does that imply about the Republicans themselves?  they've permitted a loud mouth hypocritical bully to become a key part of their public relations efforts.  kinda says something about the GOP leadership....either they silently agree with Rush Limbaugh and all his insane bullshiat....or they're too weak to get rid of him and can't control their own mouth piece anymore.

I don't know, if I were head of the GOP I'd have him offed. He's pretty much represents everything that's killing the republican party. So, I support him I guess.

oh no doubt.  from the outside looking in, Limbaugh is effectively training the GOP rank and file to fail in the next election cycle.  he's reinforcing the idea of party before country, and hypocritically taking stands for a religious morality that his lifestyle actively rejects.  he lies easily and excessively and is easily fact checked and proven wrong...most non-Republican voters despise the man, and know that anything that gets Limbaugh worked up is probably something worth supporting as a good policy measure.

But the Republicans can't get rid of him.  he's got 'em by the balls.  any GOP member that stands up to him gets spanked.  any party official that speaks up against Rush is disciplined (or simply fired).  the rank and file love the guy, and aren't afraid to show it.

I would disagree that their is any current scientific evidence to indicate that there is a genetic predisposition to pedophilia.

No. Pedophilia is a mental illness, just like homosexuality.
The only legitimate sexual orientation is hetero.

Limbaugh has never been opposed to same sex marriage.

Pedophilia, choice or not, involves sexual acts with minors who cannot consent. No matter how icky you think it is, two dudes willingly exchanging rings and vowing to spend their lives together - oh, and getting all the civil rights for doing so that hetero's get - is not the equivalent of rape.

What's very annoying with Rush is every once and a while he has a glint of insight. It is just impossible to stomach the other 99% of his rambling and self promoting. Garbage like this is why I turn off the radio when I roll down my car window...

It did. Specifically it mentioned that the Guardian article contained exactly 0 references to gay marriage.
"Limbaugh based his claims on an article in The Guardian that addresses questions science still has about the nature of pedophilia, but then he drew his own conclusions that normalizing same-sex marriage is similarly going to lead to normalizing the sexual abuse of children"

It's really not that hard. Hard core conservatives (anti-gay) believe some decades old, totally debunked theory that all gay males are pedophiles. Ergo, by supporting gay marriage liberals are taking the next step to endorsing pedophilia.

Read the Guardian Article

Rush is a hate-filled asshole, but the article does talk about non-harmful consenting sexual relationships between adults and children.

If that's not 'normalising' paedophilia then I dunno what is.

2013-01-09 12:47:11 PM
The difference between homosexuality, heterosexuality, and pedophilia is consent. As an adult who has reached the age of majority, I can engage in sex with a woman (or man, NTTAWWT) when the other person consents. Otherwise we call it rape. By law, a child cannot give consent or enter into a legal agreement. Same goes for bestiality. An animal cannot give consent or enter into a legal contract. If you are having sex with a minor, it is rape, by statute. That's why it's called statutory rape. If you're having sex with an animal, that's just....eww.

Why republicans want the government out of everything except the bed room and women's reproductive organs mystifies me.

Limbaugh merely vomits up whatever is on his script that week.  I doubt he really thinks his own positions through.  think of it as a filter - he's got a standard issue set of ideological beliefs on gays, sex, marriage, the environment, welfare or whatever.  anything that doesn't fit his filter is automatically thrown out.  anything else is seen through that filter and warped into a different perspective.

today Limbaugh seems to be ranting about political correctness, nationalization of health care, political reeducation of 10 year olds and capitalism being under constant unrelenting attack.  basically, he's pushing the fear angle hard today.

I have4 no problem with anyone blasting pedophilia and any article, theory, or group that supports it.  The problem is when you try to draw parallels with perfectly normal, natural relationships between consenting adults.

vernonFL: I'm not a psychiatrist, but isn't this accurate? Pedophiles are attracted to pre-pubescent children. Its not a 'choice'.


Technically, although as far as I'm aware, few paedophiles are born that way. Everything I've read on the subject indicates that many of them turn to molesting children after being molested themselves, making it less of an orientation and more of a genuine mental illness. That's also where the "Gay people = kiddy diddlers" imaginary parallel breaks down; as much as they want to believe that simply being near a gay person will make them gay themselves, a la the cycle of abuse, we all know that it's complete bollocks. :P

Yeah, that guardian article strikes me as intentionally inflammatory in an effort to get people thinking about the nature of black and white morality and simple acceptance of mores at face value. The unexamined life and all that.
