The Strange and Hypocritical Sexuality of the Republican Party

Republicans have such a strange relationship with sexuality. Case in point, anti-abortion extremist Neal Horsley.

Last night, anti-abortion extremist Neal Horsley was a guest on The Alan Colmes Show, a FOX News radio program. The topic was an interesting one - whether or not an internet service provider should allow Horsley to post the names of abortion doctors on his website. Horsley does that as a way of targeting them and one doctor has been killed. In the course of the interview, however, Colmes asked Horsley about his background, including a statement that he had admitted to engaging in homosexual and bestiality sex.

At first, Horsley laughed and said, "Just because it's printed in the media, people jump to believe it."

"Is it true?" Colmes asked.

"Hey, Alan, if you want to accuse me of having sex when I was a fool, I did everything that crossed my mind that looked like I..."

AC: "You had sex with animals?"

NH: "Absolutely. I was a fool. When you grow up on a farm in Georgia, your first girlfriend is a mule."

AC: "I'm not so sure that that is so."

NH: "You didn't grow up on a farm in Georgia, did you?"

AC: "Are you suggesting that everybody who grows up on a farm in Georgia has a mule as a girlfriend?"

NH: It has historically been the case. You people are so far removed from the reality... Welcome to domestic life on the farm..."

Colmes said he thought there were a lot of people in the audience who grew up on farms, are living on farms now, raising kids on farms and "and I don't think they are dating Elsie right now.

You know what I'm saying?"
Horsley said, "You experiment with anything that moves when you are growing up sexually. You're naive. You know better than that... If it's warm and it's damp and it vibrates you might in fact have sex with it."

***GOI Comment: This is what you get when you have these far right wingers who preach this "abistence only" policy. Sexuality is a normal, natural thing and you can not just supress it. If you do, then you end with with people like Horsley who take out their sexual frustrations on ANIMALS!!! I guess his answer to avoiding "unwanted pregnancies" is to diddle with the mule!!

In addition to Horsley, Colmes has recently interviewed Randall Terry another radical anti-abortionist and anti-gay activist. In the middle of an otherwise serious interview, Terry began joking - apropos of nothing - that he and Colmes were ex-lovers.

***GOI Comment: For people that are supposedly against homosexuality they sure are obsessed with it, don'tchya think??

Another extremist interviewed by Colmes not too long ago was Rev. Fred Phelps who stated on the show that he thought the death penalty should be given for those who engage in "sodomy." When Colmes asked Phelps if he had ever engaged in gay sex, Phelps blustered but never said no.

***GOI Comment: It's a simple "yes" or "no" Reverand. No need to get all blustery about it.

Hmm, I'm beginning to sense a pattern here. Come to think of it, Ann Coulter is reputed to have an unusually, er, wide-ranging sex life, too, though as far as I know it's just confined to men. Still, it doesn't exactly match the profile of an ultra-conservative.

***Very Conservative and Very Anti-Homosexual Mayor Jim West of Spokane, Oregon Outted As a Hypocrite.*** (Read More Below).

This from The Seattle Times:

Jim West, who rose to the top ranks of the state Republican Party over many years as a state lawmaker, should resign as mayor of Spokane.

Allegations of child molestation many years ago, along with use of the perquisites of his office to lure a man he believed to be 18 into a date, will overwhelm his ability to fully serve the citizens of Spokane.

Use of a City Hall computer and offers of a city internship to a young man he was courting online show a tragic willingness to abuse power. Elected officials must be held to the highest standards of ethical conduct

In light of the allegations, West has all but admitted he is bisexual. He also admitted frequenting a Web site intended for a gay audience. Many people are surprised to learn about West's sexuality, but that in itself is no reason to resign. West is not married. His private life is his own.

That said, West also must face the hypocrisy of his stances on gay rights as a state legislator and mayor. On several occasions, West voted against legislation that would protect gays and lesbians from discrimination. According to the Spokesman-Review, he supported legislation that would have prohibited gays and lesbians from working in schools and day-care centers.

As recently as last week, he opposed a Spokane City Council ordinance extending benefits to domestic partners of city employees.

The sad irony is West now seeks the kind of respect for his privacy and sexuality that he was unwilling to grant, legislatively, to others.

***GOI Comment: No one cares what you do in the sexual life as long as it is not illegal. IF However, you belong to a party that opposes the rights of homosexuals and you yourself oppose measures to advance gay rights and protections then your sexual history is fair game. ESPECIALLY if you are yourself a homosexual. These examples are a just a few of the hypocrisies on sexuality in the Republican party.

All this and yet we are told over and over by Republicans that theirs is the party of "Morals and Values??" They are so screwed up about what's "moral and immoral" that they can't see straight enough to walk down the street!!
