(Huffington Post)   Rob Portman changes opinion on gay marriage when son comes out. Conservatives see more GOP acceptance for same-sex marriage and change their opinions. Just kidding. They turn the derp up to potato by saying his son will die from AIDS or oral cancer   (huffingtonpost.com ) divider line

So, what, gay cocks transmit cancer, too?

Would a condom protect against that?

Or are the chemicals used in condoms what cause the cancer?

"Homosexual sex is ultimately just as destructive as cocaine use"

I don't see how this is news.  Anyone could have predicted this reaction from the derposphere.

FRC president Tony Perkins wrote that Will's choices, and the choices of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people in general "are both harmful to them and society as a whole."

At least they back up these wild accusations with solid facts and logic.

"Homosexual sex is ultimately just as destructive as cocaine use," the post continued. "Would Portman suddenly call for the legalization of cocaine if his son had announced that he was a cocaine addict? Would that be "loving" and "compassionate"?"

That there is a hat full of crazy.

Is there a phrase for people who 100% believe one vague line while completely ignoring messages flat-out said repeatedly in their guides?

Another asshole Republican who can only find tolerance and compassion on a contentious issue when it affects him and HIS family. See also: Nancy Reagan (stem cell research Re: Alzheimer's), Ken Mehlman, Dick Cheney (same-sex marriage), Rick Santorum (pregnancy termination when the mother's life is in danger), etc. So excuse me if I'm not lining up to give him any "attaboys" on this, since he's just doing what ALL Republicans do...Look out for numero uno.

That's the difference between the Left and Right...We manage to care just as much about others as we do about ourselves.

Is that supposed to imply that having a cock in your mouth will give you cancer?

If that were true that would be sad for every man whether gay or straight,  since it would make it really hard to talk somebody into holding your wang in their mouth.

Keep winning over the hearts and minds of the young people demographic, R(ape) party. I can feel it working.

fozziewazzi: It's gotten to a point where there's no political capital that has to be spent for coming out on gay marriage. Notice how the GOP barely budged when Portman announced his support.

You're right. The GOP barely budged from their original position of hatred and bigotry.

Never trust any organization that has the word "family" in its name.

This is very true... Though, considering, Portman's support of DOMA and his actions against homosexual marriage in the past, it's going to take a lot more than words to make up for it.

Let's see if he's got the strength of his new found convictions and actively and publicly works to have homosexuals treated equally under the law regarding marriage contracts.

I sincerely hope he does.

No, no, cocks only give cancer if it's gay cocks in gay mouths.

If it's a straight cock in a woman's mouth, the woman's body reflexively and legitimately shuts down any cancer that may be passed on by the cock.
 
2013-03-20 04:29:33 PM  
So a "wide stance" leads to cancer?

Some celeb-twitterer the day Portman made the news:
"Wait for the day one of these Republicans finds their kid is female."

// and thus did Twitter become useful for the second time ever
// first was a tweet/response between Capt Kirk and Captain of the ISS

remains to be seen. Sounds like he accepts his son so maybe he will buck the party on it

now, if someone needs to die of AIDS or oral cancer, that is the perfect candidate, right there.

Well, it's true. Liberals are really intolerant of homophobes. Why can't we all just live in peace?

Well gee, maybe he'd have reduced risk of oral cancer if the GOP would stop screaming that the HPV vaccine is going to make their daughters into sluts.

Is there anything the Republicans aren't wrong about?

Every time I read stories like this I remind myself, this is exactly what my dad would say if I was a lesbian, then I thank god that I'm only a godless heathen who sleeps around, drinks, and sins at every corner of life, but at least I ain't munching carpet.
 
2013-03-20 04:41:49 PM  
I thought this was going to be GOP members in office saying stuff.   "Duh" that the hate mongering organizations like Focus on the Family and the AFA are going to have these kind of statements.

Have any GOP Senators/Congressmen lashed out at him yet?   If we don't see any, that will be the much more significant thing than the obvious reaction of these organizations.

My dad disagrees with the GOP on gay marriage, abortion, and religion, yet he still votes for them straight-ticket.

This suggests that the GOP could take more moderate stances on these positions and retain the votes of the people who would now disagree with them.

To put it another way, there's no possibility that current GOP voters will vote Democrat even if the GOP budges on these issues.
 
2013-03-20 04:44:44 PM  
I think it's rather sad he had to have a scenario so close to home before he could decide he was a human being. As far as I'm concerned this is just another "fark you, I got mine" attitude.
 
2013-03-20 04:44:51 PM  
Portman is a douche. His son came out 2 years ago, but he waited until Romney's campaign was over(He was a huge Romney supporter) to announce this? Fark him. I feel sorry for his son, but don't care about his hypocritical ass...
