No One Except Hate Groups Want To Work With Anti-Gay Dr. Turek


The fun starts at 3:30

Remember Dr. Frank Turek, the guy that Cisco Systems fired for writing a bunch of anti-gay articles? Well, Bank of America just let him go too after 15 years of teaching team-building exercises for his anti-gay work. In a friendly chat with hate-group leader Tony Perkins, Turek wonders whether he’d would have been fired for writing a book defending marriage equality. Maybe not, but they probably would have fired a racist.

Oh, and there’s more…

He says, “Marriage for the country is not about recognizing love between two people, it’s about recognizing a relationship that actually propagates and nurtures the next generation.”

You hear that, everyone? Marriage has nothing to do with love. It has to do with popping out kids.

David Badash from The New Civil Rights Movement also points out two of Turek’s other lies:

Turek falsely states, “I get a lot of flak for agreeing with what a majority of Americnas agree on, and that is that marriage is between on mean and one woman.” Well, Dr. Turek and Adams, you’re wrong. We now have at least five major nationwide polls that find that the majority of Americans support same-sex marriage.

Turek also falsely states that only a man and a woman an best-nurture children as well. False! And we have studies that prove that as well.

Perkins adds, “We’re unlike the other side that is constantly shaking down corporate America for money and for political leverage that they’re using them for. We’re just saying, ‘Stay neutral.'” Yeah, anti-equality folks never ask businesses for cash or political support. Oh wait… they do.

Besides, Perkins would like to act like LGBT activists have “shaken down” Cisco Systems and Bank of America to fire Turek when it was Cisco and BOA employees who said that they didn’t want to work with an anti-gay author. That is, the sentiment against anti-gay contractors in these cases has come from within the corporate culture itself, not from outside activists.

Co-host Tim Wildmon says that the American Family Association has shown that when businesses support equality Christian consumers speak loudly with their money and show them “there’s a price to be paid”. Oh, Lord… he’s not talking about the AFA’s failed, years-long Home Depot boycott, is he?

      I, ______, take you _______, to be my (wife/husband), to have and to hold from this day forward, for better or for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish; from this day forward until death do us part.

      How could anyone possibly read that as anything but an agreement between two people — who are utterly indifferent towards each other — to get right down to the baby-making.

      Does religion make people stupid, or are stupid people just really attracted to religion?

      I can’t pop a baby out of a vagina but I can do some card tricks. Does that count?

      Marriage is based on love but the institution of marriage is designed to feminize males and moderate their promiscuity so that a stable environment is provided for children. Note the word “institution”. By this word, I mean something that is admired and aimed for.

      It is basically women who put the demand on men for marriage because she is the one who needs to feminize and moderate the male.

      How can you be straight these days, and listen to the dumbest shitbirds mischaracterise your every dream and aspiration while you stand by doing nothing? That’s the thing that gets me. How willing are the professors of physics in our culture to give over the lecterns and blackboards to the idiot booger eaters in the back of the class, so they can “teach” how to be good little cave men and women?

      You can have all the polls in the world refuting popular homophobic claims, but in the end the idiots on the right will believe only what the idiot talking heads on the right (Limbaugh, Beck, Colter et al) tell them to believe.
