Dear Gordon: Gays Don’t Want You Participating in Sex Life

Our old friend Gordon Klingenschmitt is seeing demonic spirits again, this time claiming that the government is trying to force Christians “at the point of the government sword” to “participate in their sodomy.” Uh, Gordon…I promise you that no one wants you participating in their sex lives at all.

    It’s almost as if he doesn’t understand what a consent-based sexual ethics would look like.

  • cottonnero

    Wait, he’s not seriously arguing that the government is going to force Christians to have anal sex, right? It’s one of those Wingnut-to-English arguments like “Letting employees of Catholic organizations have insurance which covers abortion is the same thing as forcing us to murder babies”, right?

  • justsomeguy

    The government sword is mostly ceremonial. Also, on account of the shutdown, it hasn’t been sharpened in forever.

    The government +2 flaming crossbow of forced sodomy, on the other hand….

  • karmacat

    Hmmm. Is this really wishful thinking on his part? Or his statement could just be another way for him to keep the money coming in

  • NitricAcid

    This is part of the “with us or against us” mentality. If you’re not actively trying to stop “sodomy”, then you’re helping the “sodomites”. If your taxes subsidize a gay “marriage” (by letting them have all the tax benefits that other married couples get), then you are actively enabling them to do sodomy-type things, which makes you a participant.

    To Gordo and other Talibangelicals, not allowing businesses to discriminate against gays is giving the stamp of approval to their sexual practices, hence “participating” in them. It’s lunacy but what do expect from him?

    In Utah the liquor stores are run by the gummint. Are there gonna be federal sex shops now? Cause that would be cool. Just doing my civic duty here.

    Gonna get my ration card punched…if you know what I mean.

    I swear, it’s like these whackos’ parents never gave them anything to read but Peretti novels and the Chick tract “The Last Generation.”

    Like the liquor stores, the sex shops will be run by the state, and allow men to have sex with as many wives as they like.

    What do you think Obamacare’s Individual Mandate is? It’s right there in the name! “Mandate”. “Man” “date”. And mandates are followed by mansex! Wake up, people!

    Gordo has a PhD? I bet his thesis starts out with, “Hello! I’m Dr Chaps and this is my thesis. I drew all the pictures myself and I even stayed within the lines, mostly.”

  • Daniel Dashwood

    UH he is uglier than Gollum. Who in their right mind would want him anyway?

    Re billdaniels @ #11

    Klingenschmuck’s PhD is in theology from Regent, Un. It’s as phony as he is.

  • Hatchetfish

    I can’t actually bring myself to watch the asshat, but it seems to me he’s on a campaign for a redefinition of ‘sodomy’ that includes ‘same sex marriage’, as a framing tactic. That is, he’s not arguing ‘marrying the gays makes you an accessory to the icky icky sex they do’, he’s calling same sex marriage itself sodomy hoping that usage will catch on. Worthless jackass.

    Hey, buddy. I’m gettin’ real tired of you ruinin’ by keyboards! You’d best slack off, or I’ll be sendin’ ya a bill for the next un.

    “If Christians don’t participate in their sodomy, then we can be sued, bankrupted, and jailed.”

    I don’t think he means this literally, in an orgy. Apparently Klingenschmitt thinks that following the law and neither illegally discriminating against gay people in business nor beating them up translates into “participating in their sodomy.”

    Which makes me wonder if allowing atheists to eat at lunch counters, ride in the front of the bus, and rent properties is “participating in their atheism?” I mean, where does it end? Can you fire someone for adultery? Can you refuse to serve a customer who worships a false god? Why draw this line of “participation?”

    Or perhaps I’m giving Klingenschmit too much credit.

    Somehow as I read this thread, I kept thinking of the snippet where the biology teacher asks `Who first suggested reproduction without sex?’ and the Matthew Broderick character passes a note to his girlfriend that provokes tittering. When the teacher demands an answer from Broderick, he says `Your wife?’

    I have no idea why Klingenschmitt should remind me of this.

    Snippet from WarGames, I mean.
