Maine Anti-Marriage Equality Group Claims Gays Are Promiscuous, Victims Of Rape

Protect Marriage Maine listed “25 Reasons to Preserve Traditional Marriage” and among them was the alleged fact that homosexuals are “highly promiscuous,” have AIDS and are secretly just victims of rape.

ThinkProgress reports:

Homosexuality is highly promiscuous. To accept homosexuality as the social, moral, or religious equivalent of heterosexuality would constitute the first modern assault on the extremely hard-won, millennia-old battle for a family-based sexually monogamous society – precisely because the homosexual lifestyle is highly promiscuous. The basis of homosexuality is centered around anonymous sexual encounters. Long term relationships are very rare. […]

As a result, serial homosexuality has as its most visible consequence AIDS, among various venereal diseases. But another social problem is that it is largely predatory. Part of the thrill, part of the challenge, is having sex with the inexperienced, the uninitiated, and to dare say that out loud, even though it is true, is to risk being called “intolerant”, “homophobic”, or worse. The dark secret of homosexual society is how many homosexuals first entered into that world through a disturbing seduction or rape or molestation or abuse, and how many of them yearn to get out of the homosexual community and live normally.

The acceptance of homosexuality as the equal of heterosexual marital love signifies the decline of Western civilization as surely as the rejection of homosexuality and other non-marital sex made the creation of this civilization possible. The overwhelming majority of US citizens and parents do not want the government to endorse and promote a homosexual lifestyle, with bizarre and promiscuous behaviors, and many negative outcomes — particularly to innocent children.

GLAAD notes that the post has been scrubbed from Protect Marriage Maine’s website, though it has already exposed the “true, purely anti-gay sentiment behind this effort to prevent marriage equality.” Meanwhile, final poll numbers showed voters in favor of upholding the 2009 bill legalizing same-sex marriage, which could make Maine the first state to legalize gay marriage by popular vote.

    There is no legitimate reason to be against marriage equality other than prejudice. There is literally and absolutely none.

    These thugs will use any lie to advance their homophobic agenda. One has to wonder what scared their pregnant mothers so that they fear us to this degree.

    Yet another example of total lack of logic. If gays were as promiscuous as they claim, no gay person would want to get married in the first place so there would be no campaign for gay marriage. And isn’t lifelong commitment to one partner, married or not, one of the best ways to stay safe from STD’s including AIDS?
    If they were actually serious about these things they would be encouraging gay people to get married.

    Well, Washington State has had an “everything but marriage” Domestic Partnership law for a few years. But…

    FULL marriage equality was finally passed this spring by legislators YET is being challenged via a voter referendum. R-74.

    So, no marriage equality yet. Not until voters decide today… with many mailed in ballots arriving all week.

    Since this marriage equality came up in Washington State, over 19 polls have been taken over the past year. All 19 show marriage equality as favored. Even the University of Washington poll that shows a “bias” factor indicates a victory by a few percentage points. (Bias factor = anti-gay people often lie during polls as to not appear bigoted).

    The latest Washington State poll this past week with 900+ respondents shows 52% supporting marriage equality. 42% against and 6% undecided.

    In a “mock” K-12 public school election throughout the state, 67.5% of the kids voted in favor of same-sex marriage. 49% voted to legalize marijuana.

    $14 million raised for marriage equality including money from Amazon founder ($2.5 mil), Bill and Melinda Gates, Bloomberg, Brad Pitt, thousands of others, etc. Compared to $2.6 million raised for marriage discrimination.

    If marriage equality passes, same-sex marriages in Washington State would start in 30 days: December 6, 2012.

    Sadly we’ve lost with those numbers. Those numbers are nearly identical to Prop 8 polling. There hasn’t appeared to be a last minute surge by NOM, but still…

  • John Doe

    Actually in 3 of the 12 Prop 8 polls they were showing that Prop 8 would indeed pass.

    Thus – no marriage equality for California per 3 of the 12 polls. Washington State = 0 of 19 polls.

    The final Prop 8 poll showed only a 3% spread between not passing vs. passing.

    The final 2 Washington State polls are showing a spread of roughly 9 – 10% in favor of marriage equality.

    The October 31st UW poll with numbers ADJUSTED for bias (never done before) shows a 6% spread, favoring equality.

    So, from a statistical standpoint Washington State’s chances look better, but no one is celebrating yet.

    My guess is a 4% victory spread.

    If you accept that gay men are more promiscuous, are they promiscuous because they’re gay or because they’re men? It’s usually a woman’s role to say no, but in the world of gay men there is no one who’s going to say no. Single gay guys know from the first kiss that they’re going to end up in the sack. Straight men just WISH it were that easy for them.

    And why do the homophobes believe that if a boy is molested by a man it’s somehow going to make him gay — that is, to LOVE men — but if a woman is molested by a man it will cause her to become a man-hating lesbian? What sense does that make? Sounds like they believe that nonsense that the Reverend Ted Haggard tried to sell about being molested as a child and then “seeking comfort in the arms of another man.” What? With a male prostitute? Monthly for three years? That’s plain old horniness, not “seeking comfort.”

    And gay marriage will lead to “the decline of Western civilization”? Yeah, like the Netherlands has gone to hell in a handbasket over the past ten years. Did we even know that we had that kind of power?

    @gaym50ish: I don’t think gay men are more promiscuous because they are gay, I think a lot of gay men are promiscuous because they have been brainwashed into believing that they are worth less than straight people, and that they have no real future especially with another man. Even that they may as well live a hedonistic lifestyle because it doesn’t matter if they harm themselves because no one cares any way.
    Thankfuly this is becoming less and less true.

    @daveed: Doesn’t it feel great to be wrong now and then? :)
