It should be no surprise when Michele Bachmann's husband, Marcus, provides us with this view of gays.
We have to understand: barbarians need to be educated. They need to be disciplined. Just because someone feels it or thinks it doesn’t mean that we are supposed to go down that road. That’s what is called the sinful nature. We have a responsibility as parents and as authority figures not to encourage such thoughts and feelings from moving into the action steps…So he thinks that gays are barbarians and need to be educated or even disciplined? Really? That what? That gay Americans are going to destroy American civilization, and that you can educate the gay away?
Social conservatives say they respect life and this is why they are against abortions for any circumstance (rape, incest), but when it is homosexual life they do nothing but demonize. Pat Robertson, almost on the same note, thinks God will destroy the United States because some states in the U.S. gives rights to its GLBT citizens.
Right-wing, social conservatives really have no respect for life. It is religion that informs their bigotry. The bible is rife with anti-gay stuff.
Rather they exhibit undying religious commitment which not only makes them bigots, but hypocrites -- placing religiously motived hate above people.
