We are today releasing an analysis of publicly available documents which show that homosexuals in the military are three times more likely to commit sexual assaults than heterosexuals are relative to their numbers. We believe this problem would only increase if the current law against homosexuality…were to be repealed.
—Peter Sprigg, the Family Research Council policy studies senior fellow, on a conference call explaining why DADT must remain in place [via]
But maybe it’s not as bad as … this?
Hmm, the Family Research Council….why does that name ring a bell, Family Research Council…Family Research Council…
Oh Wait! I know! That is the group that was founded by George Rekers! The guy who travels around with barely legal male hookers he meets online! Now, what were they saying again? Oh, thats right, nothing because their credibility is in the toilet.
Those stats are obviously bullshit. The homophobes are getting scared and desperate.
One more conservative obsessed with gay sex.
Aaron – even if the stats are biased, that is something easily disputed. For example, I can’t believe that Gay soldier who has every reason NOT to divulge his orientation would call attention to himself by raping another soldier. Much more likely, it was consensual and one of them had to charge rape avoid court martial, or whatever.
And I’m a little leery about “publicly available documents.” Right there that certainly raises speculation about what documents are NOT publicly available.
As you suspected, Sprigg pulled this “three times” bullshit out of his ass. Further details are on my blog:
If Congress repeals DADT, expect straight soldiers to start raping women AND men.
That “America’s Survival” video is evil. My blood boiled when they showed a picture of a muscular guy with his head and crotch replaced by pictures of disease. What a sick attempt to dehumanize us in the minds of the ignorant. I hate to be repetitive, but the only word that truly seems to fit is evil.
This guy and his organization’s founder George Rekkers wish….
Am I dense or what? I just don’t get how a country that is supposed to be founded on freedom and equality can be so filled with hate and discrimination.
Gays have served openly in the UK for years (admittedly there were issues at first as any new change brings its own set of problems) but now the armed services are over it, in fact recruitment is up.
I would also like to point out that US solders have been working with other countries with open policies and gay consultants for years, the CIA and NSA has gay staff… has it caused them problems?
What is the obsession over gay solders? Surely there are bigger problems that demand attention?
At least we now know what his secret fantasy is.
“Peter Sprigg, when will you stop hiring male escorts, giving blow jobs under the bathroom stall, and groping your interns?” seems like the only appropriate response given the bating average of our enemies.
Fucking religious homophobes.
Why aren’t they campaigning against the overwhelming number of female soldiers being raped by the heterosexual males in the army. The military has been fostering a culture of silence around the issue for years.
But of course they’re fundies, what the hell do they care about women.
In their sick mind, gays are some abominable monsters, and sick, violent straight men are just boys being boys.
Who is giving this jackass a platform to spew this crap and why?

I wouldn’t be leery about real “publicly available documents” but rather any documents that are not properly cited so you can check what they contain on your own.
It’s like flying saucers – the aliens always seem to land in some obscure place like Tuva ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h5Pgmx2WCsY ) so it isn’t very likely that anyone will check up on the story.
A religious nut job?…!….Now THERE’S a shocker!
B – I don’t think you got what I was driving at. Some years ago in a history class, we learned that The Congressional Record can be edited after publication. Not “corrected” but entire things can be expunged and/or re-written for subsequent editions. Now, I don’t know about you, but I expect transcripts and minutes to be exactly what happened and this is not the case with TCR.
I agree with you that records need to be cited and available in a case like this so any person can check for themselves, but like I was trying to say – we have no way of knowing what or how records from the military make it into the public domain and which ones are withheld and/or are they modified prior to their appearance into public domain.
PLAYS WELL WITH OTHERS
Why do all those rightwing lunatics all have the same creepy wax like faces???
#17 because they are old as dirt and don’t want to appear that way; they think with make up and hair dye they will seem young and appeal to younger audiences.
@Jaroslaw: You should maybe mention bad comb-overs.
This is why we need a second Nuremberg Trial to send all the Christianazis to the gas chamber. And take the camel fucker Islamofascists with you.
If I were in the military I sure as hell wouldn’t fight for your freedom, goy boy.
Queerty: why do you keep posting videos without telling us what the contents are so we know whether it’s worth fighting to get them to open, or coming back to when we can have the sound on, or whatever?
