Endlessly entertaining, the religious among us are pretty much comic relief. Like this asshole:
During an interview on June 20th, the leader of an anti-LGBT group in Texas said that gay activists want concentration camps for those who refuse to sell wedding cakes to gay couples and discriminate against them.
Raging Elephants Radio host Calver Kamau Imani asked Jonathan Saenz, president of Texas Values, to comment on a Colorado baker who refused to sell wedding cakes to same-sex couples earlier this year.
“And so the homosexual couple, whether it’s man and man, woman and woman, whatever, they go to this specially created commission to deal with this, file a complaint against the business, and so the commission says ‘No, you’re gonna make this cake, plus, you’re going to go to concentration camp… Is that what you’re telling us, Jonathan?” asked Imani.
“That’s right, that’s right…You know, they tried to do something like that here in Texas — I think it was a bill by Senator Rodney Ellis that dealt with hate crime stuff, where they would’ve forced you to participate in an event of the quote-unquote community that you had offended. I mean, this is what they want. I mean, there’s no question. I’ve seen it… I’ve seen them try to do it with legislation here in Texas at the state level. It is a goal of theirs to put people in jail that disagree with homosexual marriage, without question or the homosexual lifestyle,” responded Saenz.
According to Gay and Lesbian Alliance against Defamation (GLAAD), which is a non-profit organization that promotes the image of LGBT individuals in the media, Saenz has defended the proposal of ex-gay therapy as a proven scientific measure in Texas. However, Texas Republican Party discredited the proposal calling it “reparative therapy” in its party’s platform that was released earlier this month.
It’s a relatively simple equation. Paranoid schizophrenic? Don’t worry! You will never ever have to be medicated, or locked away for everyone’s safety AND yours – you can always get a job with the Republicans, or a fake job like a priest or minister.
And then they can tend to the Christian refugees at the ‘Wouldn’t Sell A Cake’ Camp.
But morons like Saenz? I honestly, seriously, wish for a method where I can smarten people like this butthole by slapping I.Q points into them. He’d be a genius by the time I was done. Oh well.
Till the next post then.
