Teen Radio Hate Monger Yanked Off The Air, Defends Himself

14-year-old Caiden Cowager, who earned a place in infamy last week after his malicious anti-gay rants made headlines, has been yanked off the air. First, his YouTube account was shut down. Now Spreaker, an online app that allows audio broadcasting, pulled his radio show, saying in a statement:

“While we not only support free speech, we help it find its way to more people faster and easier with our service that is the audio equivalent of YouTube, but like them, we cannot and will not condone hate speech. Consequently, we have pulled down audio content from Caiden Cowgar [sic], whose recent gay-bashing clearly crosses the line from free — to hate — speech.”

He’s baaaaaaaaack! Cowger will not be silenced. In a new video posted to his YouTube account, Part Deux (Tagline: “Not going anywhere!”), Cowger responded to the media backlash. Via the Charleston Daily Mail:

“I have every right to voice my opinion. I have every right to express my views. And who are you to try to stop me? You’re trying to shut me down because of what I have to say…. You’re not going to stop me. You’re not going to silence me. I have every right to voice my opinion and I plan on doing this for a long time. So good luck, you’re going to have to put up with me.”

He singled out the Huffington Post. What? Does the kid not read Queerty?

      yes he has the right to voice his opinion
      but that does not shield him from the consequences of his words
      opinion is not a magical shield that will stop people from calling you on your bullshit or stop you from getting punished
      you have the right to go to a dark alley full of black men and scream how much you hate all the niggers, but that doesnt protect you from them beating you half to death

      Now he’s pitting himself against those imaginary bullies.

      It’s a shame that the gay media chases advertising revenue so much that it has to give morons like this the oxygen, but that’s the way it is, I guess.

      He can say what he likes, he’s right there. But there are consequences to hate speech. As for the opinions of children not mattering – children influence other children. Hate like this infectious and needs addressing, I should never go unchallenged.

      I actuall think removing his accounts was the wrong thing to do – all his videos/recordings should been edited with a “warning – this recording contains hate speech” message at the beginning, middle and end.

      I actually feel sorry for him, he obviously has some very narrow minded, hateful influences in his life who use him as their mouth piece to push a right-wing ideology.

      At that age in this modern time he’ll find himself increasingly isolated from his generation.

      @tjr101: I agree, I do pity him, so full of hatred for others. The role models in his life have a lot to answer for – no one is born hateful, after all. It’s a learnt behaviour. He’s only 14, in many ways he’s a victim too – a victim of bad parenting. I just hope he learns the error of his ways before he hurts someone.

If we shouldn’t be concerned with the opinions of teens who spew hate speech then we shouldn’t be concerned with the opinions of those courageous glbt friendly and/or glbt teens who speak out also. We just cant nor should we just pay attention to what we “want” to hear. We should be paying more attention to those who do not wish us well even more so regardless if it is a teen or an adult (esp. those with a public platform like a radio show). Teens influnence other teens and little angry misguided teens like this moron is exactly why so many GLBT teens end up taking their own lives.

      Being black, left-handed or being gay is just as natural. Bibles and the torah which includes leviticus 18:22 should be immediately banned for promoting hatred against minorities; namely the gay community and the crosses removed from all schools and churches.

      The evil writings in Leviticus 18:22 against gays depict; rules for temple rituals or “P” … Priestly Rules & expanded by the pope; homophobes and religious frauds to attack the gay community and never meant to apply to the public but to priests. Leviticus exists in the old testament & torah.

      “It is written; so therefore it shall be? We are the chosen people? Such a wicked fantasy.” To see the religious lunatics manipulate government and our lives is shameful.

      It is a sometimes rare occurrence to fall in Love and to hold that person in your heart and be loved in return … it is something that should be celebrated! If it is between two guys or girls all the better. It takes even more courage to defend that LOVE!

      How would you like it … if hate speech was directed to your brother or sister as you sat in the pew; spewed by some better than thou religious lunatic with a hateful black book about Leviticus — under his arm?

      The pope and churches fully aware that Leviticus 18:22 applies only to priests; refuse to remove this stigma maliciously persecuting gays – and many kids bullied into suicide …! If the black community or women had it written that they should be put to death; how would they like that? According to biblical law, a father can sell his daughter as a slave.

      There is no scientific evidence to prove any of the cross related bogus elements of christianity. Man goes back 6,000,000 years; 5,996,000 years before the Greeks, Romans and the Jews and 5,998,000 years pre-dating the myth of christianity which is a mere 2012 year old cult which copied Mithraism. Jesus even copied Simon who lived 150 miles from where Jesus supposedly lived! Simon was saying he was the messiah … long before Jesus and Jesus copied the idea via his cousin John the Baptist and thereafter Jesus said he was the messiah – what total bull!

      Today they have insane asylums for such professed messiahs.

      Christianity is basically a fiction which turned out to be one of the most hateful & evil concoctions ever perpetrated on the world. Christ was nothing but an ancient con artist! One day Bernie Madoff could be called a prophet and even declared a saint — by a lunatic pope. St. Bernie Madoff. He was a great profit … believe it; if you may! Einstein stated in a letter recently auctioned that the bible was a collection of primitive legends. He said believing in God was childish and he as a Jew is no different than another person and not chosen by God. Many theologians state quite correctly that the birth; crucifixion; resurrection and other elements of christianity actually didn’t even happen!

      This holier than thou – written so there it shall be — fallacy; must be stopped. It is a criminal offence to cause harm onto others physically or with written items … the bible and torah have been getting away with this for ages. This bogus religious filth should be banned. It exists as a tax exempt structure which discriminates against human rights. The pope, bishops and mormons are cult members promoting discrimination against minorities. Perhaps religious establishments have pushed too far from San Francisco to Washington — and it may backfire to such a degree that the churches should be shut down! Churches are committing hate crimes and more succinctly a violent criminal offence against a federally protected minority namely the gay community. It is actually a bigger moment in history … gays standing up for equality … soldiers being discharged are indeed exposing something far greater … the realization that there is something far more evil at work — hateful religion which should be discharged from society — period. It’s now time to shut down the churches with bibles with leviticus 18:22. Religion and the churches should now be exposed as a bigoted structure that gets away with hate mongering. Tony Perkins and The Family Research Council’s opposition to gay rights have landed the outfit onto a list of “hate groups,” like the KKK. Christian colleges should be classified as hate groups and shut down.

      Alan Turing broke the code for the enigima machine in World War II and was gay. He was persecuted after the war by the religious community and committed suicide. Prime Minister Brown apologized on behalf of the United Kingdom.

      The Pope with his blatant witchcraft related to the bible and its hateful beliefs; tries to rule with extreme prejudice against a world … that may fall victim to religions’ absolute evil. The pope represents a bigger fraud than Madoff’s $20 billion ripoff. Today’s evangelical extremists are like the nazis who cast others into ovens & are actually supremacists – who practice their bogus hocus pocus – and are trying to suppress and deprive others of their happiness and their legal rights in an open and proud society.

      By enjoying their tax exempt status and benefits from the state it also puts churches at the mercy of state; to be forced to adhere to human rights laws. Religion is thriving like a cancerous growth on society that should be stopped in its tracks; outlawed & banned.

      I also hear that voicing one’s opinions and being judgmental is the same thing.

      And being judgmental is not good.

      The Book says to “follow after the things which make for peace…..be kind and considerate…..don’t provoke one another”.

      Why is it so hard to do these “great deeds” of scripture?

      @FunMe: It’s a mistake to judge all Baptists alike, and especially to lump them in with the Southern Baptist Convention. My mom was born and raised a Baptist, and she never spoke of it as anything but loving and caring, based firmly on Jesus’s teachings with no hint of Old Testament judgmentalism. Condemning all Baptists, or all Christians, is just as wrong as condemning all gay people for the wrongs of the few.

      Unfortunately, American schools do not teach the scientific facts about sexual orien-tation. To expect Caiden Cowager, likely of limited intellect and education, to know anything about medical science is absurd. Here are just a few of the facts:

      ” During fetal development, if androgens (male sex hormones) are not present, are insufficient in quantity, or are unusable, the brain, body, or both will feminize due to the lack of sufficient male hormones or intolerance to male hormones. If androgens are present, sufficient in quantity, and usable, the brain, body or both will masculinize due to the presence of sufficient tolerated male hormones. In humans, genital-gender/sex arises in the 2nd to 3rd months and brain-gender/sex in the 4th to 5th months of fetal development. The time disparity between the development of neurological and genital sexuality increases the probability of cross-gendering leading to homosexuality and other brain based anomalous gender/sex behaviors.
      Genetics and teratology.
      Based on an extensive review of the literature on the etiology of homosexuality, biological events predominantly explain the origins of sexual orientation. While some question the ethics of studying genetic issues related to homosexuality, in-utero genetic or neuroendocrinological events play a critical role in cross-gendering. Genetic and in-utero chemically induced sex-altered groups illustrate the paradigm: Turner’s Syndrome, Androgen Insensitives, Testicular Feminizing Syndrome, Klinefelter’s Syndrome (XnY), progestin-administered females, Adrenogenital Syndrome, “super-males” (XYn), etc. Species other than humans, in the wild and captivity, exhibit “homosexual” behavior. Particularly primates appear to have differing degrees of “homosexual” behavior. The first evidence of the sex-behavior center came from research on mammals. Most research involved surgical interventions and the administration or denial of sex hormones during critical brain differentiation periods. In human female fetuses at risk for masculinizing effects from male hormones, German physicians, using in-utero anti-androgens, have forced female genitalia and brain-gender/sex. Although discussed by Dorner, the use of androgens to force male brain-gender is complex and can potentially result in brain damage, attention deficit disorder, learning disabilities, hyper-activity, and hyper-aggression.
      Physiology, anatomy, and psychophysiology.
      Numerous studies show male homosexuals in many ways approximate females and significantly differ from male heterosexuals. Comparing male homosexuals to female heterosexuals, similarities include muscle structure, sleep patterns, pelvic openings, carry angle of arm, perception, finger dexterity, noticeable acoustic style, visuo-spatial ability, verbal performance, language lateralization, eating disorders, throw-to-target ability, mental rotation task, E.E.G. readings, response to male pheromones, etc. Compared to heterosexual males, some studies suggest homosexual males appear more prone to left-handedness, stuttering, and reading difficulties, differing brain anatomy related to auditory input, atypical gender and sex behavior, differing lipid levels, more empathy and altruism, larger penile dimension, etc. Among other research showing brain differences between homosexual and heterosexual males, anatomical research at Salk Institute comparing male heterosexual and homosexual brains suggests a differing development of the sex-behavior center in male homosexuals. A more recent UCLA study of the male homosexual brain shows broader differences discriminating male homosexuals from both male and female heterosexuals. Research on transsexuals has also revealed significant differences in brain anatomy and gonadotropin secretions.
      Hormonal anomalies.
      Direct hormonal evidence shows that male homosexuals and heterosexuals significantly differ from one another. In blind analysis, Margolese and Janiger accurately predicted sexual orientation. Some depressives, unknown to be homosexual, may have a similar difference in sex hormone ratio. Dorner and Gooren injected estrogen into male homosexuals, male heterosexuals, and female heterosexuals with removed ovaries. They found the luteinizing hormone response of male homosexuals almost identical with these females and significantly different from male heterosexuals. Similar results are found in male-to-female transsexuals. Studies, using stringent classification of research subjects, show adult male heterosexuals have significantly higher levels of male hormones than do male homosexuals. In animals with litters along a placental line, female mammals between male mammals cause post-natal sex-stereotypic male behaviors (e.g., sexual mounting and aggression) in these females. Dorner hypothesizes that various in humans prenatal and postnatal hormonal administrations may be used to establish specific brain sex/gender outcomes.
      Upsetting a female mammal during gestation can produce cross-gendered offspring. Stress apparently lowers androgens in humans and crowding causes stress resulting in anomalous social behavior and cross-gendered behavior in mammals. A similar phenomenon occurs in post hoc research on some homosexual research subjects. Twice the numbers of male homosexuals were born in war-ravaged Germany during World War II than the six years before or after the war.

      Pheromones and Sexual Orientation
      The vomeronasal system, adjacent to the olfactory system, mediates sexual interest for both males and females. Findings indicate pheromones play an important role in the identification of sexual objects at a subconscious level. For male homosexuals research has shown a clearly female neurological and social response to pheromones produced by males. In addition, preference for human body odors are influenced by gender and sexual orientation.
      Genetics and Neuroendocrinology.
      Augmenting decades old and contemporary research showing more homosexuals are born as the age of the mother increases, recent research implicates H-Y antigens (resulting from previous male births) increase the probability of adult homosexuality and lack of heterosexual cohabitation by as much as 33 percent. The sibling sex ration, without implicating H-Y antigen, suggests that approximately 10% of the variance in male homosexual behavior can be accounted for sibling sex-ratio. Androgen-insensitives (XY females) and partial-androgen insensitives, illustrate the power of genetics in creating a divergence of genetic gender from both behavioral and anatomic gender. XX females born with male genitalia and behavioral masculinization present a clear case for biologically induced cross gendering. Many chromosomal anomalies (e.g., X deletion ring, ring X or isochrome X, missing X, XXXX, XYY, XX/XY, X0/XY, XXY/XX, XXY/XY, X0/XX, etc.) are contributing factors to sexual orientation, level of intellect, performance of tasks, etc. Identical twins are usually concordant in sexual orientation. Identical twins discordant for sexual orientation can be explained by biological events and reluctance of some to reveal their homosexuality. There is one study, dealing with 61 pairs of twins and three sets of triplets. In one case all the triplets were homosexual. Genetic linkage analysis, using extended families, of the X chromosome suggests some familial male homosexuality is likely genetic and passed down the maternal line. A recent study using only homosexual siblings, found through advertisements in Gay newspapers and magazines, using a limited number of markers without the comparisons in extended families called into question the genetic theory of homosexuality. Studies of the genetic contribution to homosexuality are often marred by poor subject selection, precise definitions of behavior, over generalization, inadequate methodology, etc. Based on many studies of male homosexual twins, using very conservative statistical formulae, heritable factors may account for 44 percent of cases. Research on twins, families, and the adopted implicates genetic or neurohormonal origins for sexual orientation.
      The argument against genetic factors because homosexuals seldom marry is fallacious. Male homosexuals, subjected to social pressure to marry, often have offspring. Even if homosexuals did not reproduce, the gene pool would still contain recessive traits, sport genes, and neuro-hormonal influences in-utero leading to cross-gendering.
      Surgery and brain compromise.
      Evidence from neurosurgery challenges the archetypic myth that persons, based on genital sex determination at birth, will exhibit “gender appropriate” or “heterosexual” behavior in adolescence and adulthood. The first such evidence comes from data on pre-frontal lobotomy patients , some being treated for agitated depression. Following surgery, some patients became “spontaneously” homosexual. In line with Money’s comments about sex hormone ratios in some depressives, many of these patients had significant depressive illness. Apparently, when the frontal area of the brain could no longer suppress underlying homosexual drives, these pseudoheterosexuals reverted to their normal homosexual preoccupation. In follow-up, patients reported being able to suppress homosexual urges over a long period. Clinical data shows that as the brain deteriorates with aging, some pseudoheterosexuals are unable to mask their underlying homosexuality.
      In some countries, homosexuals have been “treated” surgically to force heterosexual behavior. Psychosurgery of the sex behavior center reduces or eliminates homosexual responding in some homosexual males. Many patients, without psychotherapeutic intervention, become heterosexually active after surgery. Some become asexual and have no sexual interest. Psychosurgery in lesbians results in fewer behavioral changes. After these psychosurgeries, failure to follow-up patients and adverse side-effects are common–including death. A German government commission has called for the elimination of these surgeries. Psychosurgeries to change sexual orientation are not available in the United States.
      Some males are accidentally mutilated during circumcision. Because of the ease of a male to female change, they are often sexually reassigned as females. Some of these “females” are masculine in behavior and many are “lesbian” during adulthood.
      Research shows changes in sexual orientation can result from viral attack of the human sex-behavior center, head injuries, and tumors. Psychosocial stressors leading to pseudosexuality and neurological insult or injury are apparently the only means of significantly altering the expression of sexual orientation. Excepting neurological changes, no credible sex researcher in the last fifty years has suggested sexual orientation changes after childhood. Most agree biological factors often mediate sexual orientation.
      Psychophysiology.
      Autonomic pupillary and penile reflexes, minimally controlled by conscious processes, reliably differentiate between male heterosexuals and homosexuals. Male homosexual behavior can be reduced or eliminated using painful electric shock or apomorphine vomiting with or without desensitizing male homosexual to females. Ego-dystonic homosexuals “self-referred” or sent by “government social service agencies” often have psychopathology and marked homophobia. “Homophobia” is best characterized as a revulsion related to homosexual practices or openly homosexual persons. Many “cured” male homosexuals continue to have powerful homosexual urges without erectile function with sexual partners. Despite protracted aversive intervention, male homosexuals continue to have autonomic pupil responses to male stimuli. Aversion therapy and other invasive treatments are punitive and pose serious ethical concerns.

      @Gene in L.A.: For what it’s worth, Gene, your point is well taken. I lived in the South for 21 years and the Southern Baptist Convention really is a class of religious extremists which now finds itself embroiled in controversy because some of its members have followed their teachings to their logical, hateful extremes. The Baptist Churches that I attended, in my youth, in the North were never so obssessed with Old Testament judgements but rather focused on the forgiving, loving character of Christ whose message has sadly been corrupted by many seeking worldly power. There is nothing inherently evil about true Christianity, what Christ actually had to say, but rather what man has done with His message that has brought much death and suffering to the world. It is this warped, twisted and false Christianity that continues to bring harm to the world and which should be exposed for what it is. True believers can be and many are our natural allies in our effort to bring equality under the law into existence.

      @Carl 1: Unfortunately, implausabilty doesn’t neccessarily equate with the inabiltiy to believe and therein lies his danger. I mean no one who truly studies and thinks for himself would believe these fools who were trying to get the Supreme Court to hear their arguments over the Presidents birth certifcate and yet thousands do. That’s why we should not be dismissive of people like this boy. Actually, his ambition frightens me. He’s out to make a name for himself and anyone who gets harmed or who he has to harm to get there be damned. He’s another one who will use religion for self-enrichment and the record is replete with the damage such people have caused for centuries.

      It’s probable that “the pride that goes before a fall” will tame his tongue.

      Here’s something interesting the Book says —

      The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole person, sets the whole course of his life on fire, and “is itself set on fire by hell.”

      I wish this young fella reads that before he continues on his journey.

      While I may abhor everything he has to say, I will fight to the death his right to say it.

      It’s a slippery slope. Pulling someone off the air because we disagree with what he has to say sets a dangerous precedent.

      Wow….this video is rather comical in an odd sort of way. No 16 year old talks like that on his own. He is too well-spoken for his age. He is more of a good actor rather than a free thinker as he is clearly imitating Rush Limbaugh and the like. He hasn’t an original thought, speech or mannerism that he didn’t learn from his idols. He’s an idiot as they are. He has a right to speak his mind as the owners of the website have a right to shut him down. As far as the hatred for Christianity in the comments, its equally scary although I understand the hatred for it when I see idiots like this claiming to be Christian and speaking for God! He will pay a heavy price when he meets his maker for the evil ideologies he has spoken and called them CHRIST-LIKE! I am a christian and a homosexual and i find no conflict between the two. Many of the gays that are bashing Christianity with such hatred and fervor are often the same ones that have never read the book or darkened the doors of any church to know anything about the material they are so vehemently decrying! Lets face it, there are EVIL Christians, there are Good Atheist or Agnostics and there is NO reason for anyone to attack another over their religious beliefs or lack of them! Stop using the bible to justify your twisted sense of morality and stop attacking Christians because they share and preach a belief you dont!

      @Billysees: No 67

      I think I was too hasty to agree to the comments made in No.66.
      And I apologize.

      It is very “inappropriate” to accuse others of having a “twisted sense of morality” because they are not shy about criticizing, in various ways, the bad works of Christians.

      The Book says that “faith without works is dead”. That’s “good” works of course.

      Here’s a few goodies from the Book about how we should be treated —

      1. Therefore let us stop passing judgment on one another. Instead, make up your mind not to put any stumbling block or obstacle in your brother’s way.

      2. Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God.

      3. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.

      4. Finally, all of you, live in harmony with one another; be sympathetic, love as brothers, be compassionate and humble.

      Why shouldn’t anyone be angry because they are the recipient of mean spirited comments from supposed Christian people whose faith is either withered or dead already.

      Sorry billy sees. The twisted sense of morality was for the so-called Christians twisting the bible to justify their hate-fueled remarks, not the people angered by it. I don’t mean to insinuate that anyone should just take what is said and not defend themselves. Quite the contrary. In reference to your verses, they are actually quotes by Paul made in a letter to one of his early churches ( I believe it was his church in ephesus). The church was fighting within itself and member against member. So these remarks were made to Christians on how to treat other Christians WITHIN the church.
      At any rate billysees, I agree that we should ALL (gay and straight) be angered by this little twit’s comments. All of us have a reason to be angry. I just hate the fact that people are attacking god over this idiots speech. He DOES NOT speak for god!!

      @DavidNFl: No. 69

      Your explanation does make better sense now.

      You made a challenging comment that I can’t recall considering, until now.
      It sounds to me that those first 3 quotes (4 is from Peter), as you say, are from Paul to Christians on how to treat other Christians WITHIN the church.
      And you capitalize WITHIN as if that is their “only” application.

      But they sound like such good and meaningful and worthwhile advice that it seems to be a waste NOT to consider them in a broader sense.
      That’s why I think “they do” or “should” have a broader application.
      Applying all 4 of them towards LGBT folks or anybody else for that matter sounds just excellent.

      It’s a great expansion of meaning.
      It gives us a greater task of thinking more inclusively.

      After all, He is the Savior of the “whole” world, especially them that believe.
      Then why not think that way?

      It’s obvious the kid wants power. He’s already addicted. You can tell from watching this video, he’s getting his fix. It’s too bad he can’t channel his nervous energy into something more benign, like playing the piano, or skateboarding. His chilling observation that young impressionable kids are being seduced into being gay because the president of the United States has given the thumbs up to gay marriage, is laughable and ironic considering how he doesn’t seem to be even slightly aware of the conservative propaganda machine that’s turning him and countless other innocent children into flaming sociopaths.
