  • Alabama's Largest Newspaper Asks: 'Is Roy Moore A Closeted Homosexual?'

    Alabama's largest newspaper responds to Chief Justice Roy Moore's Sunday night decree banning same-sex marriage licenses in a unique way.

    The Birmingham News is the largest newspaper in Alabama. In response to Chief Justice Roy Moore Sunday night banning the issuance of marriage licenses to same-sex couples, the paper's online site, AL.com, ran a piece titled, "Readers Poll: Is Roy Moore protesting too much?"

    So, there's only one question left.

    Is it whether gay marriage will happen in Alabama? 

    Please. Already, almost three quarters of the people in this country live in states where same-sex marriage is legal already. Do you think Alabama is going to suddenly change the minds of federal judges, including the United States Supreme Court which has already all but waved a rainbow-checkered flag at the finish line? If the high court didn't intervene with Florida, it won't for Alabama. Don't be ridiculous.  

    Can the state say to hell with the federal government and do its own thing? 

    See: Civil War.

    And: Civil Rights Movement.

    And also: Pretty Much Every Federal Court Action against Alabama in 150 years.

    Alongside the article, technically an opinion piece by Political Commentator Kyle Whitmire, is a surprising poll, asking, "Is Roy Moore a closeted homosexual?"

    Options are:

    Yes.

    No.

    Maybe, but just that one time in college.

    Currently, 66% answered "yes."

    Whitmire concludes, "there is only one question left for me."

    Is he a gay? 

    I'm sorry, but think about it. No really. At least Google it. How many politicians who have stomped their feet over this issue turned out to be ... sexually bipartisan? There have been many.

    What's one Moore?

      Lol “What’s one Moore?”

      Relax everyone. I suspect this little poll is just a funny way to get back at Moore for being a jerk. Being anti-equality doesn’t necessarily mean you’re gay, it just means you’re selfish and pushy. OTHER people being equal doesn’t affect the marriages of straight people. That being said, when people are pathologically homophobic and issuing illegal, unconstitutional edicts to prevent equality, long after the rest of the country is on board, one has to wonder if the dude has a screw loose somewhere. As for the person who said accusing someone of being gay boarders on libel or slander, that won’t fly. Since there’s nothing wrong with being gay, there’s nothing wrong with saying someone is (or might be) gay. You can’t libel someone by making a neutral statement.

      The issue (the only issue) is with the insane idea that anyone who objects to ANYTHING a self-identified homosexual says or does MUST be doing it because he is himself homosexual. The responses to my comment were totally stupid and had nothing to do with what I actually said, further demonstrating the hysterical lack of self-control in some of you. I don’t care whom you love or marry, and I wouldn’t know if you’d all put down your bullhorns and just live your lives. Again, the title and the idea are ridiculous.

      Roy Cohn, anyone?

      This article is spot-on. Those who protest too much, as even Shakespeare noted more than 500 years ago, usually are what they protest. Remember Ted Haggard and his ministries? Bishop Eddie Long?etc. etc.?

      This borders on libel. I think what this man is doing is akin to the governor of Alabama standing outside a school to stop black youth from entering on the first day that federal desegregation was to take place but saying the judge is a closet case? Being a homosexual in this country is still considered a bad thing and this article implying this judge is gay could get the writer and paper sued.

      I agree. the cliche is in how often self loathing closet queers lash out and mete real world damage on bystanding innocents and get a pass because they’re behaving on behalf of decency (!) and virture (!) and morality (!) and heteronormative sexism.

      All we want, too-butch-to-be-real dudes, is our unmolested homes and families, be left in peace, and be recognized as real, healthy, actual citizens of this great land. Same as you. Same as you.

      It’s amazing to me that people like Robert Owen can actually think that way. Do you walk down the street fearful or pompous bc you think that all gay men want to “kiss you on the mouth”? Newsflash! they don’t, and they also don’t think you want top. They just (gasp!) want to have THE SAME RIGHTS as you.

    • commented 2015-02-09 19:31:37 -0500
      Robert Owen: The issue is not one of gays expecting, hoping or wishing that every other guy wants to kiss them on the mouth or in any other location, but of self loathing and transference of self flagellation by the closet queer. The mechanism is that the pretender (that he’s non-gay) recognizes in himself at minimum a latency of homosexual motivations and is so well conditioned to be repulsed that he lashes out at all those who would not suppress those feelings in themselves. His reaction would include punishing offenders who do not hate themselves as much as he hates himself in every way possible.

      Further, I do not now, nor have I ever known a single gay person who overtly or secretly thinks that every other guy wants them or in any way lusts after them. That is an egocentric heterosexist myth, indicative of the perpetrator’s neuroses and phobias without any reflection on the gays of the world. And, THAT’s the sum total of the perversion associated with that subject.

      The “gay” question is not unique. It is an embarrassing cliche that jumps up in nearly every discussion of this type. Homosexuals would love to believe that everyone who is repulsed by their lifestyle secretly wants to kiss them on the mouth. How perverted is that viewpoint? More than a little. BTW, Baptists don’t secretly yearn to be Muslim, in case you’re going there next! Idiot!
