In Muehlenberg's ideology, they shouldn't exist at all, but should be forced to live lies as "straight" people, like his "ex-gay" buddies (the only gay people Muehlenberg has ever spoken to).
After his article, "More Born That Way Baloney", I took it apart in this post and showed it up for the lies, distortion and denial of scientific reality it is - to overwhelming silence from his defenders who usually stop by to leave a comment - why nothing on that article guys? - I guess you just have to ignore it when Muehlenberg's ignorance and bigotry is revealed?
One of Muehlenberg's comments that has subsequently appeared is highly illuminating:
Oh, and by the way, my disapproval of the homosexual lifestyle is also genetic. I was born that way, I can’t help it, and I did not choose this lifestyle – and I certainly cannot leave it. So stop your bigotry and intolerance toward me, and accept me for who I am. My genes made me do it. Stop forcing me to become who I cannot be. Learn to embrace diversity John.
Obviously anyone with a functioning brain cell can see this for the fallacy it is. Bigotry is not genetic. It is a choice to be actively hostile towards a minority. And no gay people are saying that Muehlenberg oughtn't be allowed to exist, which is not a tolerance you see in the other direction. As far as Muehlenberg is concerned, there simply isn't an excuse for gay people to exist.
Muehlenberg is also happy to publish comments like this on his article "Love is not the same as Acceptance":
Michael Ejercito 17.6.13 / 1am
People who commit sodomy and buggery curse themselves through their choices and conduct.
Wow - I mean just feel the Christ-like love, dignity and acceptance oozing out of people like Bill and his cohort.
This week Exodus International, after thirty years of screwing up vulnerable gay people's lives with lies that they can "pray away the gay" - have finally announced that they are to close their doors. Alan Chambers, the director, issued a full and heartfelt apology to the gay community for the decades of damage, torture and abuse the ex-gay scam has perpetrated upon gay people. Muehlenberg's response? Ignore the apology and continue with this blatant lie:
Change is indeed possible, and it happens all the time. God bless all the ex-homosexual ministries that have remained true to Christ, to God’s Word, and the power of the Holy Spirit to radically change lives. They are doing tremendous work, as countless former homosexuals can attest to.
Why believe the man who has spearheaded the whole "ex-gay" racket for decades who has finally seen the light, when you have Bill Muehlenberg, who has never spoken to a single gay person and refuses to acknowledge their personhood, to ask?
And finally, Muehlenberg has been gushing with praise for Putin, who has established laws that will imprison and fine anyone for so much as forming a gay support group. Muehlenberg overwhelmingly endorses such tyrannical and oppressive policies. I posted on CultureWatch to point out that violence, murder and hate crimes against homosexuals is at an all-time high in Russia. Naturally, that doesn't support his agenda, so he didn't post it.
Frankly, he doesn't care. He thinks gay people deserved to be tortured (through "ex-gay" therapy), denied human rights (his stance against any form of equality) and he shows no concern whatsoever for the high rates of violence and murder against gay people worldwide.
And yet he thinks he's the moral one.
UPDATE: I have received a post from a tiresome troll who humbly goes by the name "Anonymous" throwing this quote at me:
As a Harvard University study states, “New scientific research shows that environmental influences can actually affect whether and how genes are expressed. Thus, the old ideas that genes are ‘set in stone’ or that they alone determine development have been disproven. In fact, scientists have discovered that early experiences can determine how genes are turned on and off and even whether some are expressed at all. Therefore, the experiences children have early in life—and the environments in which they have them—shape their developing brain architecture and strongly affect [them].” But maybe Harvard studies aren't enough evidence for you?Yes, perfectly good enough for me. You don't seem to understand that the quote makes my point for me! In what way does it support your case? If you want to respond please do so on the appropriate post, not this one.
