The former state representative from West Michigan entered the national debate on gay marriage two weeks ago by sharing an article on Facebook titled "Everyone Should Know These Statistics on Homosexuality," which began with a warning to parents that their children could be "indoctrinated" at public schools.

I went to public schools. And suddenly I have a hankering to get gay married. I'll do this after lunch, I suppose.

Agema repeated that claim on Wednesday, saying that school kids are already being conditioned to accept homosexuality and that "the next thing that will occur is your kids will come home and say, 'I think this is a good thing and I think I want to be one.'"

I remember when they taught us back in school that we should accept black people.  I never once considered I might actually turn into one!

Which reminds me of this bit by Wanda Sykes.

I do take comfort in knowing that the GOP only has a few years left to obstruct America from meeting its potential.

I am a gay alcoholic who desperately needs help.

I need help figuring out which cocktail has the least carbs? I gotta look good in my chaps for Pride!

Real conservatives compare homosexuality to pedophiles and zooaphiles.

As a matter of fact when Jesus caught a woman in the act of adultery when they brought her to him he said I don't condemn you but go and sin no more.

Hmmm, I seem to remember another part of that story. Something about stones, and sin, and a crowd of people condemning sinners.

Methinks someone is a teensy bit unclear on the meaning of "outreach"
 
2013-04-11 04:06:21 PM  
Senate Majority Leader Randy Richardville, R-Monroe, said Wednesday that he would not join the calls for resignation but suggested that Agema should be more cognizant of all Republican attitudes as he continues to represent the state at the national level.
"I don't agree with his comments, but he's not speaking on behalf of me or the caucus or, I don't think, most Republicans in general," Richardville said. "Dave Agema has a tendency to speak on his own behalf, and there's not much of a filter from what he believes and what he says."



He represents the state's Republicans but he is not speaking on behalf of them, how does that work?

So what is his take on Goth culture? A lot of those people can show signs of isolation, depression, drug abuse, etc.
Exposure to it in school can lead to an interest and possibly even choosing to follow that path. Does that mean that we need to go tell all of them, 'you are sick, let me help you'?

Maybe he thinks it's like an outreacharound, which he's totally against.

Thank you for not making the rookie mistake of calling them assless chaps.

I applaud him. We need more conservatives expressing their true thoughts and motivations.

so, this is how the party of stupid transforms itself into a party that's, well, not stupid?


/what did you expect? they're stupid.

Is there a gay equivalent of being a social drinker?  Or a binge drinker?  What if I only drink when I'm grilling, are there people who are only gay around grills?  What if I only drink communion wine, am I "Sunday Gay"?

Such a comparison seems like it can only come from someone who feels their own sexual preference to be a curse.

I'll drink to that!

Question. If being around gay people turns straight people gay, then why hasn't being around straight people every day for the past 28 years turned me straight?

Diogenes: Which reminds me of this bit by Wanda Sykes.


"The bible says 'Adam and Eve,' not 'Adam and Mary J. Blige.'"

Damn, I don't care who you are, that sh*t is funny.

This is a serious problem, though... religion by its nature is old-school and slow to adapt.  People go to church every week and consult their bibles for guidance, hearing this "love the sinner, hate the sin" thing and they have a choice.  Either:
A. Hate the sinner and ignore them right out of your life,
B. Try to help the sinner to stop being a sinner, or
C. Change their own beliefs independently of their church, family and friends that the Bible is goofed up on this matter.

Naturally "C" is the right answer, because gay people are people first and their "sin" is part of a caricature a long time in the making, but then "C" is the difficult answer, too.  This dumdum is stuck on "B."

"If only you'd convince yourself that romantic love is completely unimportant and just pretend to be straight SUPER HARD, you know, for Jesus, then you'd understand the blessing that is his love."

The GOP is the Taliban in America!

There I said it... they are a hateful quasi-religious authoritarian group that thinks/votes in lock-step.

They say and do the most hateful things, without a wince of decency.

I alternately turn gay and straight depending on who I am hanging out with. Going to a gay bar? Holy shiat, I start craving the cock like oxygen. Hang out with my heterosexual married friends? The twat starts looking very good.

Uranus Is Huge!: RINO!

"Stop comparing them to pig farkers and kiddle diddlers! They're more like a bunch of drunks that just need to go to AA!"

Well, it's an improvement of sorts. A few years from now they might start saying things like, "gays can't help being gay just like straights can't help being straight." And about 50 years from now, they'll actually mean it.

I'll take a stab at what their answer might resemble:

"Because homosexuality is a disease.  You don't catch 'healthy' from people.  You catch diseases."

/GOP still controls the local situations where they can gerrymander voting districts, so you're looking at decades or more. Unless the Democrats grow some testicular fortitude.

spongeboob: He represents the state's Republicans but he is not speaking on behalf of them, how does that work?


He represents the state because he's a public official.  However, his positions are not inline with his colleagues, so he's not speaking for the sentiments of the state assembly or GOP.

Crazy example: Obama goes on national TV and says "the time has come for a constitutional monarchy under King Barack the First."  Yes, he's going to impart that this is America's view, even if it isn't.  Everyone else will say "yeah, I know he's the President and all, but that is not the view of our people, legislature, party, etc..."

I realize that for you conservatives self-loathing is a real motivator. But the rest of us are just fine with who we are. It's having to be around you conservatives that makes us miserable.
