Important Pornography Announcement (brought to you by the Values Voter Summit)

QuoteQuote:
Sen. Tom Coburn’s (R-Okla.) Chief of Staff: ‘All Pornography Is Homosexual Pornography’

One of the final events of the Values Voter Summit was a Saturday breakout session on “the new masculinity,” a wide-ranging topic that one speaker used to explain how any and all pornography could lead young people into homosexual lifestyles. That speaker was Sen. Tom Coburn’s (R-Okla.) chief of staff Michael Schwartz, a longtime conservative activist who has worked for the senator since 2005.

“Pornography is a blight,” Schwartz told an audience in a crowded room of the Omni Shoreham hotel. “It is a disaster. It is one of those silent diseases in our society that we haven’t been able to overcome very well. Now, I may be getting politically incorrect here. And it’s been a few years, but not that many, since I was closely associated with pre-adolescent boys, boys around 10 years of age. But it is my observation that boys of that age have less tolerance for homosexuality than just about any other class of people. They speak badly about homosexuality. And that’s because they don’t want to be that way. They don’t want to fall into it.”

Schwartz told the crowd about Jim Johnson, a friend of his who turned an old hotel into a hospice for gay men dying of AIDS. “One of the things he said to me,” said Schwartz, “that I think is an astonishingly insightful remark… he said ‘All pornography is homosexual pornography, because all pornography turns your sexual drive inwards.”

There were murmurs and gasps from the crowd. “Now, think about that,” said Schwartz. “And if you tell an 11-year-old boy about that, do you think he’s going to want to get a copy of Playboy? I’m pretty sure he’ll lose interest. That’s the last thing he wants! You know, that’s a good comment, it’s a good point, and it’s a good thing to teach young people.”

Here’s the final portion of Schwartz’s remarks.

What will they think of next?

OH my goodness...

You gotta give em credit for coming at it from all angles... no pun intended.


I do remember my 'teenage' lust for naked women and thinking, "I hope this does not mean I am gettin' more gay!" And looking at those busty ladies of playboy, and wishing they were men.

You see my point? Am I drivin' it home?

Good golly save me, for I am lost! Lost in cloud of Man Dreams masquerading as women dreams...

It is all so confusing!

Gotta imagine that telling little kids that looking at naked ladies will make them gay might have some unintended consequences.

I think if you're at the point where you think a picture of *anything* has that kind of power, it's pretty much jump ball.

I'm pretty sure there's certain people involved in politics and religion who couldn't get a charge out of *anything* without it being 'forbidden.' You wanna go. 'It's a *picture,* dude.'

Actually, they've been saying that a long time. Doesn't make porn any less tacky, but you don't wanna be where they try and work out the resulting issues.

I was going to comment, but to be completely honest, I don't have the words...all the while I am watching a really good PBS show called The Last Enemy:

Masterpiece | The Last Enemy | PBS
"The Last Enemy" (2008)

And so far it applies...now I read THIS here...good grief!!

I'm actually in no position to make any claims in this regard.


Of all stupid ideas, it's as good as any. It's almost comic how insane, and inane a 'reason' certain people want to concoct to say people are LBGT for any reason at all but that... LBGT people and those who know us are telling the truth about what we oughtta know.

Course, you might end up with a Canon. Nuffin like an FTb upside the head if someone thinks you're paying too much attention to cameras.

If only it was pity they'd have. It's always one thing or another, and what they're looking for is *excuses.*

With these clowns "representing" us in public office it's no wonder really that a good portion of the rest of the world thinks we all have webbed feet out here...

I should go on record stating I simply reside here in OK and am actually a Kansas boy - which everyone knows is so much more collectively progressive of a state...

Old Joke...
Q: Why is it so windy in Kansas?
A: Because Oklahoma sucks so damn much!
