(The Raw Story)   Statistics tell us that about 1 in ten people are gay. Which means that probably at least two of the infamous "clown car" clan of Duggars is. Well, I think we now know the identity of one of them   (rawstory.com ) divider line 86

"I had a friend who went and lived among headhunters and cannibals, and so I prayed to the Lord, 'Please don't send me among headhunters and cannibals.' So He sent me to Washington."

Hon, you are really special and not in a good way.

We have an administration that has taken a direct assault on us.

Aaaand that's where I stop paying attention to anything you might have to say.

"It's even wrong to tax people at a massive percentage of what they earn," he said. "It's wrong to force businesses to buy a good or a service that they don't want or need. We have a Christian and moral obligation to be involved in this process."

I guess I skipped that part of the Gospels.

That statistic is from the Kinsey Report and has pretty much been debunked.

The Duggars are weird.

I hear that 2 guys in 69 are gay.

Not always, some guys only have sex with straight guys.

2014-08-11 04:34:18 PM  
It's about 2% from what I understand, and difficult to measure because many people are "flexible". (my personal opinion is that most people are flexible.. Whatever kind of sex you try, you are likely to enjoy. Even rape can affect sexual preference.)

Not in Toronto.

Trust me. (NTTAWWT)

This guy though? Massive douche.

Anybody born into a family so sick that they had 19 children (due to egomania, idiotic religious fervor, whatever the reason... It's farking horrifying), has a limited chance of not being douchey though.

He then introduced the Benham brothers, Jason and David, whose show with HGTV was cancelled after controversial comments about same-sex marriage and Nazi Germany came to light. Duggar characterized the reason for the show's cancellation as "their Christian beliefs," then admired their "courage" in the face of the cancellation.

"We must be that courageous," he concluded, "because courage breeds courage."


They may need some room to grow in. Some place where breeders could breed and have room to live.
 
2014-08-11 04:36:54 PM  
If I get my statistics right, 1 in 20 children are also autistic. And if I remember that Canadian commercial from the 80s, one in two Canadian women have been assaulted. Now, if we combine those numbers, how many assaulted Canadian autistic women are lesbian?

Or how about we just tear that argument apart and slap the statiscian who came up with this malarkey?
 
2014-08-11 04:37:19 PM  
Yes, republicans, please be courageous and stand up to the radical gay agenda and "massive" taxes in 2016. Shout your views from the rooftops. Let everyone know exactly where you stand.

It's probably around 5 - 7%, but with males it becomes increasingly likely if you're a 2nd, 3rd, 4th son, etc.  It seems to have something to do with maternal testosterone rejection in utero.

So, given that there are 10 sons, I'll take the over on 1 in 10 odds.

Haven't read the Bible much, have you.

"Render unto Caesar the things that are..." wait, no, not that part.

"It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than a rich..." um, yeah, not that one either.  Just haing on, it's somwhere here.

I also seem to recall the prophet telling his followers to sell all their stuff if they want to be like him, and that rich folk were too self-serving to get into heaven without serious shakabuku.

Does that % include the clergy?

One in five children is Chinese. That's gotta make dinner at the Duggar house, since 3 or 4 of the kids don't speak English.
 
2014-08-11 04:48:38 PM  
only one of the duggar clan is gay

but he is

double gay
 
2014-08-11 04:49:12 PM  
"This is about an agenda against people of Christian faith, to not allow us the room to speak or even believe what we know to be right," Duggar said.

What in the ever holy fark do you think you are doing at that event you half-cent moron?!

Angela Lansbury's Merkin: I thought the numbers were closer to 1 in 20?


I don't know about that, but I have read that the more boys a couples has, the more likely they are to be gay. The sons I mean. Something to do with increasing estrogen levels in the mother or something. The Duggars have 10 boys, so very likely the youngest 5 boys are all gay.

Mr.Tangent: Ever the farking victim.


The inherent issue with Fundamentalist Catholics isn't the teachings, it's the iconography that they identify with.....they gaze longingly at this cross with a guy tacked to it and hear the message "be more like him" over and over again.  It's a mixed message....the Bible has lots of words in it so the path of least resistance is to figure out how to become a tortured victim for the "cause."

I thought the Kinsey Report concluded that 1 in 10 admitted to prior or ongoing homosexual fantasies.

Your estimate of the number of Duggars who would fail English class seems unrealistically low.

"attendees need to be as courageous in the face of President Barack Obama's agenda as the Benham brothers were when HGTV cancelled their reality show."

Obama cancels reality shows?

I did not know that
 
2014-08-11 04:57:51 PM  
Subby, is it 1 in 10 or one in ten?
 
2014-08-11 04:59:19 PM  
Anyone else irked by the use of the numeral '1' but the spelling out of 'ten'? My thesis writing prepared me to do exactly the opposite, but being a statistic and therefore representing a single figure is grating me.
 
2014-08-11 04:59:56 PM  
4 out of 5 statistics are mistakenly derived from incorrect data, incorrectly summarized or just made up on the fly.

"For me as a Christian, it also coincides with Jesus's teaching that for unto whom much is given, much shall be required,"

Looks like some of it's in  Luke.

The Duggars aren't quiverfull.  They believe in God, womb, babies, etc, but they're not doing it to build an army.

Just think how much higher the number of self-acknowledging (or admitting, if you like) gay people would be if half the country weren't constantly arguing that liking ween when you're a guy is tantamount to being a devil-worshipping child molester.
