FRC: Marriage Equality = ‘Sexual Tyranny’

Kenyn Cureton, the Family Research Council’s vice president for church ministries, told those gathered at the Watchmen on the Wall conference last week that if the Supreme Court upholds the right of gay couples to marry, that will result in “sexual tyranny.”

“We’re living in the midst of a rapidly escalating conflict in America today,” Cureton said. “It’s a war between light and darkness. It’s a war between good and evil. It’s a war between the God-given right to life and a culture of death. It’s a war between biblical sexuality and the radical homosexual agenda. It’s a war between our religious freedom and their desire to drive God out of government, Christ out of culture, and faith out of public life.”

“If the Supreme Court rules gay marriage as the law of the land in all 50 states,” he continued, “LGBT behavior will be elevated to a civil right and it will result in sexual tyranny that will trump our religious liberty. You mark it down.”

Oh believe me, I’ve marked it down. I’ve been tracking all of the ridiculous, hyperbolic, dystopian predictions. I intend to have a lot of fun throwing them in your faces when they fail to materialize. As for “sexual tyranny,” that must be what Pat Robertson was talking about when he claimed that the government was going to force Christians to enjoy anal sex.

    .. Of course a lot of them already do. Straight and gay alike.

  • StevoR

    Enjoy anal sex that is.

    Also “sexual tyranny” eh? For FUCKS sake. Who is talking about fucking what and has no sense of fucking irony here? Which group is trying to dictate to everyone else about how to live their sex and love lives here? Fuuuck mee.

    Bonus ten points for chutzpah. Negative 100 points for hypocrisy and lack of self awareness and also being plain fucking arseholes (not in a good way!) here.

    I loved the Watchmen on the Wall concert. My favorite was when Dr. Manhattan sang Comfortably Numb!

    Wanna know _why_ Christianity is declining in the USA?

    Because of this.

    I regard this sort of nonsense as a sort of “death rattle” as organized religion dies a well-deserved death.

  • Mr Ed

    The person I really feel sorry for is my wife if the Supreme court doesn’t rule in favor of same sex marriage. For twenty five years we’ve been in a monogamous heterosexual relationship but if the court forces Biblical Sexuality on us I’ll have to buy a few more wives, a concubine or two and maybe a virgin war bride. My wife is getting a bit older so I might be required to bed her hand maid to get more sons. I really was enjoying it being just the two of us.

    @4 Basically, these are the loudest Christians, so they in a way are the modern standard bearer of Christianity.

    “drive God out of government”

    That happened over 200 years ago. I think they drove him to Iran, or maybe Saudi Arabia. Maybe you should move there.

  • karmacat

    I have to say that of all the tyrannies, sexual tyranny is my favorite one.

    Of the two album set, Sexual Tyranny was superior to Sexual Democracy, I think.

    LGBT behavior will be elevated to a civil right and it will result in sexual tyranny that will trump our religious liberty

    Bunch of gibberish.

    We’re living in the midst of a rapidly escalating conflict in America today,” Cureton said. “It’s a war between light and darkness.

    True. And the Oogedy Boogedy xians own the Dark Side of our society.

    We’re living in the midst of a rapidly escalating conflict in America today,” Cureton said. … It’s a war between biblical sexuality and the radical homosexual agenda.

    Naw.

    Biblical sexuality lost millennia ago. Polygamy is no longer legal and sex slaves are right out. We no long stone nonvirgin brides to death.

    There is no such thing as the radical homosexual agenda. They want freedom from religious kooks and haters and to live their lives like everyone else. Which they have every moral, ethical, and legal right to do.

    Here’s a good reference: What the Bible Really Says about Sex

    What does the Bible really say about sex? Two new books written by university scholars for a popular audience try to answer this question. Infuriated by the dominance in the public sphere of conservative Christians who insist that the Bible incontrovertibly supports sex within the constraints of “traditional marriage,” these authors attempt to prove otherwise.

    The two books, published in 2010 and 2011, probably are quite “racy” and would likely shock fundamentalists (though some of them, I think, would be pretending.) This article itself is racy, quoting as it does from the Song of Solomon. It is also thorough, quoting specifics from both books to make the point that (although it doesn’t say so outright) the current fundamentalist interpretation of scripture is a huge stretch. This article is definitely a keeper.

    At least he got that part right. For me anyway.

    Die Anyway… a radical atheist.

    When this flashed up on the screen, out of the corner of my eye I read the first sentence as “Kenyn Cureton, the Family Research Council’s vice president for church mistresses…”

  • dingojack

    caseloweraz – ‘church mistresses’?* Of what else would the Vice President be in charge? [Well apart from dalliances involving luggage, porters and ‘long stroking’, or perhaps those in toilets on train stations, involving a little MSM with rent boys and snorting cocaine of said rent boy’s anatomy (and the like).]

    Sexual Tyranny is okay. Sexual Tyranny II, Revenge of The Dominatrix, is much better.

    He’s right. Japan was punished with Godzilla for its sins. America’s punishment will be the unleashing of Tyrannosaurus Sex.
