Gay Marriage Violates Declaration Of Independence, Is Crime Against Humanity, Says Keyes

Alan Keyes has spent the past few weeks attacking same-sex marriage, claiming it is a violation of the Declaration of Independence and “the archetype of all crimes against humanity.” Keyes, 62, ran for president in 1996, 2000, and 2008, and for the U.S. Senate in 1988, 1992, and 2004. A Roman Catholic, Keyes reportedly threw his then-20-year old daughter out of the house and cut off all financial ties when she came out as a lesbian.

Keyes recently has been appearing on Stan Solomon’s radio talk show, the “Talk to Solomon Show.”

Last week Keyes called President Obama a “communist” with a “narcissistic, totalitarian, semi-psychotic personality” who intends to “move the country in the direction of despotic, tyrannical, totalitarian communism,” according to Right Wing Watch.

This week, Right Wing Watch reports that Keyes again appeared on Solomon’s show:

Keyes attacked Sen. Rob Portman’s for endorsing marriage equality after learning that his son is gay: “If you go down a road that satisfies your personal predilections and relationships and sacrifices the common good of the country, including the elementary institution by which civilization is sustained, then you’re not only derelict in your public duty, you are abandoning your obligation as a human being.”

“Frankly, people throw around words like ‘crime against humanity,’ I think that kind of disregard for the God-endowed natural rights of human being is the archetype of all crimes against humanity,” Keyes concluded, “and I think we have an entire elite faction that is now committed to committing such a crime against the American people.”

Today, Keyes penned an op-ed at Renew AmericaRight Wing Watch notes Keyes “argues that according to the Declaration of Independence, America’s sovereignty relies on respecting God’s law, including the ‘rights of the God-endowed natural family.’ Consequently, if the US doesn’t submit to divine authority, then the country will forfeit its sovereignty and be no more.”

Keyes writes, “we learn the source and nature of these unenumerated rights from another ‘fundamental law’ of the United States – the Declaration of Independence, which ascribes them to the Creator’s endowment of all humanity.”

Most self-evident among them are the rights of the God-endowed natural family “rooted in obligations antecedent to any and all humanly instituted law or government.” From this endowment, the people of the United States derive the sovereign authority to establish and maintain their self-government. Unless they are willing to subvert their own sovereignty, they are obliged, in their actions and decisions, to respect the source of authority that validates it.

In the weeks to come, the U.S. Supreme Court may decide to promote specious rights intended to supplant “the laws of nature and of nature’s God” invoked in the Declaration of Independence. They may decide, in contravention of the Ninth Amendment, to deny and disparage the natural rights of the God-endowed family. It will then be for us, the people, to decide how to respond to their assault on the very root and source of our claim to decent liberty. If we respect the logic that reasonably, morally, and constitutionally justifies what their decision seeks to destroy, we will be able confidently to appeal, as America’s founders did in the Declaration, “to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions.” Then, whatever we face, we will have the courage to defend the institution that God made to be the living archetype of all the rest of our belongings.

First of all that one bearded man is a liar. Flat out liar. So that's him dismissed.

Alan Keyes is desperately seeking publicity.

He fails to grasp that it is the US Constitution, NOT the Declaration of Independence, which governs our country. While the D of I is an important founding document which lead to the creation of our nation it is not the one upon which our jurisprudence is based — that would be the US Constitution. Civil Rights are derived from the constitution and defined by it. It is by that standard that GLBT civil rights must be judged.

I cannot help but wonder how someone could attain Mr. Keyes level of publicity and seek to hold public office without grasping the very fundamentals of our governing system. Perhaps a 4th-grade remedial civics course is in order.

Three of my older relatives are in gay relationships with their partners from 25-40 years. How does being homosexual cut your life in half as compared to being straight. Another idiot that has n clue what he is talking about, but is clearly spreading hatred and bigotry. Why does these people have a platform?

Well lets see…my partner and I have been to gether for over 22 years now. Married for 3 as we were able to do so in Iowa. Yes were gay. We have also been together longer than most married heterosexual couples any more. So I do not understand how we are contributing to the down fall of America. We have strengthen the marriage arguments in that we are not divorcing like they are. We are strengthening The country by contributing our taxes as the law requires. Yet this blow hard has the balls to say we are the sick ones? Fuck him.

I wonder how Keyes would like it if I called him a nigger and told him that the bible says he should be a slave? Actually, the greatest crime against humanity is letting blacks and whites marry. Interracial breeding pollutes the white race. Hey, maybe I can get a job at Faux News. I sound as crazy as Keyes.

***Editorial note. These comments are made for the purpose of satire, to demonstrate how ugly and hurtful hate can be. I do not subscribe to any of these comments. I'm just "fighting fire with fire" to make a point. Hate sucks.

Tit for tat response. Keyes, you need to be put back in the negro box. Your presence lacks merit because you are equal to that of an ape. It is time to re-enslave people like you. These are my prerogatives for your failure to have learned from history and your willingness to oppress others after you had the privilege of being liberated from it. Keyes, you are in no position to unilaterally oppress others based on your sexual phobias.
