Kupelian: Anti-Gay Revulsion Comes From God

We may have a new leader in the clubhouse in the competition to see who can say the dumbest thing about Michael Sam kissing his boyfriend. David Kupelian, the #2 man at the Worldnetdaily, went on Linda Harvey’s radio show (is there a bigoted wingnut who doesn’t have a radio show?) and said this:

WorldNetDaily managing editor David Kupelian argued this weekend that the negative reactions to Michael Sam kissing his boyfriend on TV actually came from God.

“If you take a 5-year-old who looks at that and he says, ‘Ick, that’s gross,’ that is something of God, of innocence, goodness and wholesomeness in that child who sees something yucky,” he told “Mission America” host Linda Harvey.

Really? Because that same five year old is likely to find straight people kissing to be gross, too. Obviously that means God hates straight people, right? I mean, by your “logic” it must.

    Broccoli and spinach (and, Lord knows, escargot) are objectively and morally wrong too!

    Kupelian: Anti-Gay Revulsion Comes From God

    Oh, that explains a lot.

    Revulsion to dumb fundie xian bigots comes from god.

    Revulsion to the Tea Party comes from god.

    Revulsion to Ted Cruz, Mitt Romney, Rick Satanorum, and Sarah Palin comes from god.

    Revulsion to David Kupelian and Worldnet Daily comes from god.

  • Alverant

    So is that a case against homosexual men or a case against God? (There’s a lot of straight men who wouldn’t mind seeing two women kiss, it’s when two men kiss they go “Ewww”.)

    Hate fewer people, dump God.

  • bahrfeldt

    If an omnipotent god (say Cthulhu) was to fill (has filled) all humans with a holy revulsion to gay relationships (or to social, romantic and/or sexual relationships between members of different races, religions or nationalities) wouldn’t the existence of these relationships cease?

  • dingojack

    Does a feeling of revulsion in response to christiany’s petulant, ineffectual, passive-aggressive, authoritarian, homophobic, misogynistic, psychopathic child-god come from christiany’s petulant, ineffectual, passive-aggressive, authoritarian, homophobic, misogynistic, psychopathic child-god too?

    BTW Can one have ‘a revulsion to’ anything? Wouldn’t it be ‘a revulsion from‘ something?

    I have no authority on the usage, but I would have said “…revulsion at…”.

  • anubisprime

    Seems the braniac has nailed it by asserting that when fundy jeebus pant wetters consider imitating a five year old’s reaction to such intimacy between adults as coming from their delusional figment then that does suggest very strongly that they are intellectually of the same calibre as the five year old.

    And if it comes from their homophobic bigoted dikwad of a god then it would not be worth the effort of crossing the street to piss on if it was on fire!

    Really? Because that same five year old is likely to find straight people kissing to be gross, too.

    I’m not sure this argument would carry much weight with the religious fanatics. They basically think all sex is icky and revolting to god. It’s just that some of it is necessary. It’s only legitimate purpose is procreation, right?

  • gopiballava

    Does the enjoyment that some 5 year olds derive from squashing snails and burning ants with a magnifying glass mean that god approves of that as well?

  • http://timgueguen.blogspot.com timgueguen

    gopiballava, given some of the stuff God gets up to in the Bible I suspect the answer to your question would be yes. Like the bit where a pair of bears kill a bunch of kids for mocking the prophet Elisha.

    In his autobiography, retired baseball player Billy Bean (not the guy from Moneyball) talked about being inadvertently outed by his then 4 or 5 year old niece when he was still a closeted player. She had accompanied her parents on a visit to his condo where she met his “roommate” Sam. In the car afterwards, as her parents wondered why a pro baseball player making a 6-figure salary would need a roommate the girl declared she loved both Uncle Billy and Aunt Sam, which is when her parents figured it out. I think Kupelian underestimates kids & I wonder how many 5-year-olds really were repulsed by the kiss. Perhaps Kupelian is really worried that kids can understand and embrace the LGBT adults in their lives just fine and that means his fundraising future is in serious doubt.

    The kiddies would probably also say ‘Ick, that’s gross,’ if David Kupelian told them that God intends to make their parents so hungry that they will eat their own children:

    I will cause them to eat the flesh of their sons and the flesh of their daughters (Jeremiah 19.9)

    Ye shall eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your daughters shall ye eat. (Leviticus 26.29)

    Thou shalt eat the fruit of thine own body, the flesh of thy sons and of thy daughters. (Deuteronomy 28.53)

    The fathers shall eat the sons in the midst of thee, and the sons shall eat their fathers. (Ezekiel 5.10)

    The words ‘innocence, goodness, and wholesomeness’ don’t seem to fit when talking about God.

  • dingojack

    David Kupelian’s version of ‘god’ reminds of Terry Jones’ conception of the Norse gods in ‘Eric the Viking’.

    @Kaz #8: I’m not sure that procreation by Christians is necessary, or even desirable, but I know what you mean.

  • Lofty

    Properly indoctrinated god-terrorised 5 year old kids would find the kiss icky. Any kid that doesn’t is obviously in the thrall of satan.

    Heathen and heathen (and, FSM knows, heretic)!

    It’s peas, celery, and especially squash which are objectively and morally wrong!

  • thalwen

    When I was 5, I thought all kissing was icky. Therefore, man-woman kisses, man-man kisses, woman-woman kisses, and especially those lipstick aunt cheek kisses are an abomination to the Lord.

    What sort of parent has their 5-year-old watch the NFL draft? I’m not saying its unsuitable, and having it on in the background while he plays is okay, but shouldn’t he be doing something a little more kid-constructive with his time? Even as boob-tube fare goes, the draft is pretty content-free.

    (is there a bigoted wingnut who doesn’t have a radio show?)

    There’s gotta be plenty sadly.

    Where else would they get an audience? Tho’ wish it weren’t so.

    .. the negative reactions to Michael Sam kissing his boyfriend on TV actually came from God.

    So where did the positive reactions come from?

    This the same god that famously said “Love thy neighbour” and “judge not lest ye be judged” among a whole lotta other and often contardictory things?

    I guess it makes a change The devil God made me do it squicky.

  • zippythepinhead

    Yes, revulsion comes from God. But there’s a cure for that. It’s called atheism.

    ^ from.

    Guess it makes a change from ..that is.

    Also which God and says who and how do we know?

    I think that my son was about 5 when I first told him that sometimes Mommies and Daddies love each other and want to make families, sometimes two Daddies want to, and sometimes two Mommies want to. I think he put this down to some weird adult thing, and it didn’t bother him (because at that time in life, anything that didn’t affect him personally was “some weird adult thing”)

    Now that he is almost 8. he knows that one of the kids in his Navigator chapter has two moms, and it is just background noise in his life. Nobody has made a big deal about it to him, so he has no reason to believe that it is a big deal
