Gay Man Saves Muehlenberg's Life

OK so this hasn't literally just happened - but the thing is, it probably will.

Teen genius Jack Andraka has developed an accurate, quick and inexpensive method to detect pancreatic, ovarian and lung cancer. He'd done all that by the time he was 15.

Oh, and Andkara is also gay. He's out and proud.

Andkara's brilliant medical research and methodology will save countless lives, including many Christians'. If Bill Muehlenberg is consistent, when faced with illness, he will turn down any diagnostic tests developed by Andkara and take his chances with cancer instead, perhaps praying for a cure and seeing how far that gets him. But of course, he won't be consistent here, just as he isn't consistent in using a computer (the science of computing was invented by Alan Turing - a gay atheist) or indeed the internet (invented by Tim Berners Lee - an atheist).

The cognitive dissonance of Muehlenberg and others like them is such that they can block out inconvenient facts that don't support their bigoted worldview, even extending to the tools they use to spread their poison.

Interestingly, Andraka was recently honoured by the Vatican as a good teen role model! Even the Catholic Church is beginning to learn (better late than never) that gay people aren't evil but worthy of treating with respect. The more time passes and education reaches even the religious, the more Bill Muehlenberg increasingly rants on his own, becoming nastier and nastier and more and more fantastical in his denouncements of his fellow human beings who happen to be gay.

The truth is, Jack Andraka is worth a million Muehlenbergs. Before his sixteenth birthday, Andraka had contributed to the human race in incredible fashion, keeping families together longer and improving the health of the human population. Who knows what else he might go on to achieve in his lifetime? Whereas Muehelberg has spent his lifetime on his knees; not doing something worthwhile like giving good head, but grovelling to a non-existent deity. By the time he dies, within twenty years probably, what will he have contributed to humanity? What will be his legacy other than a million articles attacking gay people and a book of lies he spent twenty years on that nobody has read?

Who most to admire: Andraka or Muehlenberg? Who is the better role model for children? A no-brainer.

In his latest hate-fuelled rant, Time To Stop Promoting This Deathstyle (see what he did there? Not only does he dismiss being gay as a "lifestyle" but he uses scare-mongering tactics to pretend that being gay will lead to an early death) Muehlenberg shuffles his usual cards around. He comes to the conclusion that as some young gay men are promiscuous, and are HIV positive, then nobody should be allowed to be gay, and all gay men are the same.

Where is there an article on CultureWatch where Bill decries promiscuity amongst straight young people? I don't have any issue with that - it's none of my business. But you'd think that if Bill is appalled by all sex outside of marriage he would spend at least some of his time and energy attacking young people, especially Christians, who sleep around a lot.

Back to congitive dissonance. He doesn't attack such people because he's only interested in attacking gay people. That's essentially what his "ministry" is. If the vast majority of gay people lead lives like saints, it wouldn't make the blindest bit of difference to Bill Muehlenberg. He's so steeped in hatred and bigotry towards his fellow human beings who happen to be gay he's incapable of articulating anything else.

So when gay man Jack Andraka saves Muehlenberg's life, the real tragedy is that the irony will be lost on Muehlenberg.

It's a shame Andraka's test will work on Xtian fundies; but whereas scientists work for philanthropic reasons, religiotards like Muehlenberg are only interested in their own glory and pushing their own cancerous worldview. It's why people increasingly respect science and abhor religion, and why Muehlenberg screams even louder for attention.

The Biggest Lie Muehlenberg Tells About Gay People... and Why he Tells It

Bill Muehlenberg's latest homophobic article peddles once again the biggest lie he tells against gay people - Objects of Extreme Hate: Ex-Homosexuals.

Yes, Bill is once again peddling the lie that people can switch sexualities. Though of course, with these folk, it's only ever a switch from homosexual to heterosexual that's possible, never of course the other way round.

If Bill stopped to think about it for a minute, claiming that sexuality is a choice, as he does, he should be able to stop what he's doing and be gay for five minutes and see how he likes it. No, Bill? Is that not how it works? But I thought you said sexuality was a choice?

As usual, the religious bigots want to have it both ways.
That the militant homosexual lobby is expert at hatred and spewing forth venomous bile at anyone who dares to differ is of course well known
says Bill, who is of course well known for the courtesy and friendliness with which he speaks to those who disagree with him, and the decent and reasonable language he uses about people he disagrees with. He'd never stoop to name-calling like 'homonazis' or 'homofascists', would he? Oh, wait...

Here's the whopping great lie Bill once again tells:
The fact that so many have fully left the homosexual lifestyle obviously gives lie to the myth that homosexuals cannot change. I know many of these folks personally. They were deeply into the homosexual lifestyle, but have now been set gloriously free... 
Let's quote Alan Chambers again about the victims of Exodus International. Chambers was the man who was deeply into "reparative" "therapy", the abusive Christian quackery that claims to "pray away the gay". Chambers was for decades involved with the now-discredited and defunct Exodus International, the biggest money-spinner of the whole fraudulent ex-gay industry:
The majority of [ex-gay people] that I have met, and I would say the majority meaning 99.9% of them, have not experienced a change in their orientation…The vast majority of people that I know do still experience some level of same-sex attraction.
Whilst it's perfectly possible for gay people to live a lie and engage in sham straight relationships - the majority of gay people do before coming out - it doesn't meant their orientation has changed, it only means they have to suppress it by living a lie. I commented to this effect on Bill's article. Here's the evidence:

Was it a foul-mouthed, evidence-free rant? No. I simply presented an awkward fact that blows out of the water Bill's whole argument that gay people can just magically "change" into straight people.

Do you think he posted the comment? Or do you think he censored it? Well done, you win a cigar.

The reason Bill Muehlenberg simply can't post comments like that is because they expose his bigotry and deep-rooted hatred of gay people. If Muehlenberg can persuade himself, and worse still, others, that gay people can be changed, then they can justify their bigotry to themselves. Muehlenberg, as we know, doesn't react well to being corrected or shown where he is wrong. He reacts very, very badly to anyone disagreeing with him about anything.

The sad truth is that Bill Muehlenberg has devoted his whole meaningless life to a constant campaign of hatred against gay people. For him to accept that sexuality is an immutable trait that can't be changed is to be forced to accept that he has waged a bitter and bigoted crusade against people for a facet of their personality they couldn't possibly change. To acknowledge such a truth would be to force him to look at himself truthfully.

This is the sort of quote Bill loves to see and will readily publish, from Franklin Wood:
Dear Bill, homosexuals can obviously reform themselves if they have the will power and support.
You'll notice that Wood supplies no evidence, just blind, ignorant assertion, which is precisely what Muehlenberg claims his critics always do. Funny how he doesn't mind when it's someone who supports his bigoted worldview.

The comment suggests that all gay people need to do is try harder to be straight. It's believing this sort of idiocy that the religious right engage in in order to justify to themselves their hatred of gay people. They have, in their warped minds, brought their hatred and intolerance on themselves, since all gay people have to do is pull their socks up and stop ruining it for all the good straight folk.

Muehlenberg will hide behind his self-deceit and his bigotry whilst the world around him changes. Since educated people now realise that homosexuality is an immutable and harmless trait, western countries have gradually stopped persecuting their gay citizens and extended equal rights to them, which is the sort of civilising progress that keeps Muehlenberg and other bigots awake at night.

If Muehlenberg had his way, homosexuality would be a criminal offence punishable by death. After all, as gay people "choose" to be gay, and could easily be "converted" to be straight, then there's just no excuse for it, is there?

Face up to your bigotry, Bill, and stop peddling evil lies against your fellow humans.

So what should we do with all the 'homonazis', Bill?

Over the last few days, Bill Muehlenberg has been going into overdrive with his anti-gay agenda.

I've already posted about his homophobic videos on Youtube and the censorship he has indulged in, marking as "spam" any comments that don't agree with his agenda of denying rights to gay people. He has now blocked me altogether from posting, since I had been responding to some other commentators. Muehlenberg is so concerned that people will hear the truth about him that this is his response:

For someone who bleats about free speech being shut down and Xtians targeted, he wins the gold star for hypocrisy. It's interesting too that in his videos he talks about 'homosexuals' and 'homosexual marriage' and saves his mud-slinging ad hominems like 'homonazi' and 'homofascist' for his written articles, perhaps in a failed attempt to sound reasonable and not motivated by hate?

He's also doing his nut because 'reparative' 'therapy', the crank Christian voodoo that claims (and fails) to 'convert' gay people into straight people is in the process of being outlawed. The quack 'therapy' is abusive to gay people and has led to despair and suicide in those who have fallen victim to the peddlers of this fraud.

In "Labor/Green Hatred and Intolerance" (a justified title, of course: refusing to allow Christians to torture and persecute gay people is motivated by hatred and intolerance of Christians - obviously!) Bill states,
The New South Wales Labor Party and the Greens have combined to demonstrate their full commitment to promoting the homosexual agenda and standing against any Christian institutions which dare to resist it. They have shown their contempt for the people of NSW as they work together to push the radical homosexualist game plan throughout the state.
OMG! What have the homonazis been up to now, Billy? Do tell us! Are they creating concentration camps for Christians? Are they trying to turn Christians into atheists? Are they forcing all men to have bum sex?
They have supported a motion to leave people trapped in unwanted same-sex attraction, and are working together to target Christian schools which seek to run according to their own faith-based beliefs and values.

Oh. That's it? So much for 'homonazis', I thought for a minute something unreasonable was going down.

Since Exodus International admitted its thirty-year history was bunk, and apologised for the huge amount of damage it had cause in the lives of gay people, the evil quackery of "reparative" "therapy" has been exposed for what it is - a racket run by quacks that abuse the vulnerable.

Muehlenberg quotes:
Greens MP Jamie Parker spoke strongly against the homophobic practice.“Mr Parker said: ‘Ex-gay therapy is incredibly harmful and shamefully homophobic and it must be rejected and called out. Homosexual relationships must be equal not just before the law but also in the esteem and respect we afford them in our communities and our own interpersonal relationships. We must stand up strongly against the damaging prejudices that are inherent in therapies like this. It’s not good enough to look the other way – we need end it and speak out against it loudly and unequivocally.”

To which Bill's response is:
Wow, one almost feels like offering up the ol’ Sieg Heil after a rant like that. Spoken like true fascists alright.

It's hard to fathom how Bill's mind works. He sees fascism and intolerance in everything, apart from where it actually lies, in his own behaviour.
The simple truth is many thousands of homosexuals who have wanted such help have successfully gotten what they were looking for: a way out of a dead-end and harmful lifestyle, and genuine freedom to be who they were meant to be as men and women.

Bill's "simple truth" is of course, anything but. It's no more impossible for a gay person to have straight sex than it is for a Jewish or Muslim person to eat bacon. But what certainly hasn't changed after "therapy" is a gay person's orientation. They may marry a member of the opposite sex to keep religious bullies and bigots like Muehlenberg happy, but how fulfilling a marriage must it be if the husband has to fantasise he's with a man in order to have sex with his wife? A recipe for disaster? It so often is. Anyone interested in the subject should read the works of Dr Mel White, a gay Christian who's been through it all.

Don't take my word for it though. This is what Alan Chambers, for years the president of Exodus International, the leading authority on "ex-gay" quackery had to say about the success of his decades in the field:
The majority of people that I have met, and I would say the majority meaning 99.9% of them have not experienced a change in their orientation or have gotten to a place where they could say that they could  never be tempted or are not tempted in some way or experience some level of same-sex attraction.

Muehlenberg is never one for letting the facts get in the way of pushing his agenda though. He regularly trots out the myth of the "ex-gays" (they may be with members of the opposite sex but their orientation hasn't miraculously changed) as his trump card:
But that is just unacceptable to the Green brownshirts, or reds, or whatever colour they really are. They know that the reality of so many ex-homosexuals gives lie to their entire campaign. It proves all their baloney about people being born that way and unable to change is just that – so much PC baloney.

Yet when the vast majority of gay people say they didn't choose their sexuality and could no more change it than they could change the colour of their skin, Muehlenberg is happy to dismiss them as "liars", because they don't fit in to his neat worldview, just as he conveniently ignores the testimony of those like Alan Chambers who know a damned sight more than he does about the "ex-gay" racket. Yes, those LGBT people tortured, executed, brutally murdered, forced from their homes and careers, rejected by their families in intolerant and always religious countries have "chosen" such a fate, and could just as easily have "chosen" to be straight. Whatever you say, Bill. Whatever lame lie fits your tiny worldview.

Bill's not finished yet being angry at those gays though:
The other example of bigotry and intolerance from NSW also has to do with the homosexual agenda being used as a trump card over everyone else, in this case Christian schools: “NSW Labor will throw its support behind a push to abolish controversial laws that allow private schools to expel or discriminate against gay or transgender students.
So does Bill think such schools should be able to expel pupils just for being gay? You bet, and much more besides:
Christian schools can no longer uphold their own beliefs and practices, but must bow down to those of the homosexualists... So if a student breaks the rules of a Christian school by living a known sinful lifestyle, the school can do zilch about it. The Labor/Green tyrants might as well tell the schools if they have students committing other blatant sins, be it fornication, adultery, theft, or lying, the school has no right whatsoever to discipline them in any way, or see them removed from their schools... All they seem to want is a totalist homosexual state.

Um, no Bill. Nobody wants a "totalist homosexual state", whatever that even is. But when Bill supports measures to get rid of children from schools, to deny them an education, to have them expelled for something they can't help, had no choice in, and which is normal and legitimate, he is exposing the frightening nature of his homophobic and truly fascist agenda.

I have asked the question before on this blog as to what Muehlenberg would ideally like to see. All he ever does is throw his toys out of the pram because 1) gay people exist and ii) most western countries are starting to treat their gay citizens with dignity and respect. These two things terrify Muehlenberg.

Whilst he has regularly spoken out in favour of the Russian policy, where gay people are legally evicted from their homes just for being gay, where they lose their jobs if their employer finds out they're gay, and where the police turn a giant blind eye to the vigilante torture and murder of countless LGBT people: if this is what Muehlenberg views as an expression of good against "evil" why doesn't he come out and say it?

Why doesn't Muehlenberg actually come out and say what he thinks should be the fate of gay people in a world in which he had political power?

Muehlenberg won't be honest about this because he knows if he is he will leave himself open to be arrested for hate crimes. That's how dangerous his opinions are, and why this blog exists to expose them.

Don't believe me? Head over to CultureWatch and ask him. I'll bet you he'll either censor you or evade the question.

Muehlenberg attacks gay people with the paedophilia slur. Yet again.

In Perversion Promotion: Paedophilia Comes Out of the Closet, Bill returns to his favourite scare tactic of lumping homosexuality and paedophilia together. In all the lowest of Bill's low arguments, this is the most vile, and is clearly his effort to whip up hatred and intolerance against the LGBT community.
After years of bullying, intimidation and activist pressure by the militant homosexual lobby, the American Psychiatric Association caved in, and took homosexuality off its list of mental disorders (DSM) in 1973. Of course we all knew that this was bad news for many reasons. 
So according to Bill, gay people should still be considered mentally ill and incarcerated either in prisons or in psychiatric wards. How tolerant and sweet he is. And according to Bill the APA took homosexuality off their list of mental disorders, not because they realised they had been wrong owing to an accumulation of evidence, but because they were 'bullied'. Just think through how nonsensical Muehlenberg's whole argument is. How on earth does he imagine that this bullying took place and rendered results? No wonder he doesn't back up his ridiculous assertion.
We knew it would just be a matter of time before the social engineers at the APA would cave in to paedophilia. And that has now occurred.

Oh, absolutely Bill. Paedophilia is now completely socially acceptable. I walked past loads of adults having sex with kids this morning.
The newest (fifth) edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders now informs us that there is a ‘paedophile orientation,’ just as there is now a ‘homosexual orientation’. The rest of course will be history. If you are born that way and can’t help it, we will then move to legalisation, protection, promotion and endorsement of the paedophile lifestyle, just as was done with homosexuality. There we saw the law move from prohibition to permission to promotion. Thanks to the homosexual activists, the job of the child lovers has been made so much easier. We all owe the homosexual militants our eternal gratitude.
Is there anything Bill won't blame on gay people? I'd love to know what happened in his sad little life that has made him so homophobic. Did a gay person once push in line in front of him? Did he have a gay brother whom his parents loved more? He doesn't tell us the root of his homophobia because he knows that, unlike a person's sexuality, a pathological hatred of minorities is something that can respond to therapy.

A laugh at the goons who post on CultureWatch

Muehlenberg allows his contributors a free hand. They regularly reveal their stupidity and bigotry, generally two traits that co-exist. 

Commentator Daryl Snowden asks:
On the matter of re-orientation therapy, if we can accept that human beings generally can and do change their behaviours, habits, addictions, compulsions and obsessions, then why can’t we accept that some homosexuals, if not all, can change their preferences and convert to heterosexuality?  
Thus instantly falling into the fallacy of thinking that sexuality is just a 'habit'. What these people want to think, and what Muehlenberg truly believes, is that there simply isn't an excuse or a reason why anyone should be gay. Because they manage to persuade themselves of that they persuade themselves that their intolerance and hatred of gay people is acceptable.

Leigh D Stebbins is all Christian love and compassion:
...if it is immoral and unnatural then it is a Sin, nothing more and nothing less a Sin spelt with a Capital S and if Sin is abnormal behavior so is every deviant practice under Heaven yet the APA is saying or trying to say all deviant behaviors are normal. Give me a break.
Charming company Muel keeps. And whilst some people continue to suggest that Bill Muehlenberg really just wants the best for gay people, the fact that he allows this comment to be posted from Chris Dark give lie to that:
It was inevitable that more filth would emerge from the drains. And what about people like me, who do not like gays and lesbians, or paedophiles, and have added their voice to protest-forums and petitions over the past years? I can’t help my behaviour either….I was born this way, so I demand tolerance and acceptance for my “orientation”.
Except no, Chris. Being a cunt is a choice. Note how Dark lumps gays, lesbians and paedophiles together, as if they're all much of a muchness? Nobody likes those who abuse children, you know, like Catholic priests: but hating people simply because they are attracted to members of the same sex is inexcusable bigotry, as is suggesting they are morally equivalent to child rapists. At least Dark manages to be honest that he hates gay people, unlike Muehlenberg, who pretends he loves them so much he just wants them to be straight.

Never one for understatement, Muehlenberg calls an article, "Hurtling Towards Gomorrah" with all the melodrama of a drag queen on pride day.

In the article, Muehlenberg laments,
The sin of sodomy is still occurring of course, as are other blatant cases of immorality and rebellion against God.
Unbelievable, isn't it? Despite Muehlenberg dedicating his whole entire life to writing abusive articles against gay people, there are still some people who are gay! It really is hard to credit, after all, as Muehlenberg explains,
this behaviour [homosexuality] is the epitome of sinful, fallen man’s propensity to gross evil and defiance of God.

Yes, there's nothing that upsets Bill's non-existent deity more than two men or two women loving one another, sharing a mortgage, nursing one another through sicknesses, sharing holidays and memories and expressing their love for one another in manifold ways. It's perfectly reasonable for Muehlenberg to describe this as "gross evil" and expect that nobody will call him a bigot and a fool.
This website obviously is full of examples of our racing toward Gomorrah. We seem to be on the same path to self-destruction as these cities were. And I have certainly not been the only one warning about this. Many other voices have issued clarion calls, although most seem to fall on deaf ears.
It doesn't seem to occur to Muehlenberg that his shrill warnings that if gay people continue to exist that "god" will have to make an appearance to sort it all out are falling on "deaf ears" because most people think he's crazy and don't share his obsession with homosexuals and the awful things they get up to, like kissing, cuddling, baking cakes, holding down jobs and raising kids.

None of that is important, as far as Muehlenberg is concerned. What really matters is a story from a book of fables in which the person held up to be the good, moral one, Lot, offers up his daughters to be gang-banged by a group of men, rather than let them shag his guests, who are angels. The fact that there's zero evidence that these cities ever actually existed, and that the story views women as the property of men who can be given away to be raped with impunity, seems not to worry Muehleberg and his ilk. As he goes on:
“As in the days of Sodom and Gomorrah” awaiting the coming judgement of God. There appears no going back but rather an acceptance and legalizing of that which is an abomination to God.
So Bill has decided that homosexuality is inexcusable, and therefore homosexuals should stop giving Bill sleepless nights and nervous breakdowns by doing the decent thing and ceasing to exist, otherwise, as Paul Wilson wonders,
Given that the world is ripe already for judgement I wonder how much further the world can continue to decline and rebel against a Holy and righteous God. Its one thing for mankind to participate in vile affections so that they might receive in “themselves” that recompence of their error, with God giving them over to a reprobate mind so that even while they have the knowledge of the judgement of God that their sin is worthy of death, they continue; but surely it is another even worse when we see a movement of mankind towards the destruction not only of their own selves but of “others” the innocent children.
Erm, what?
Mark Rabich, the 40-something virgin, who has never been intimate with anybody and is more than likely to die untouched, asks:
What evidence is there that people are ‘born homosexual’ as you claim?
The glorious hypocrisy of the religionist asking for evidence!!! You show them the evidence for the age of the earth, the size of the universe, for evolution and they turn a giant, cognitive-dissonance blinded eye. Yet when it comes to something that doesn't fit their worldview, they demand evidence. When it comes to their worldview, talking snakes, gods leaping down from the sky, women made from a rib, floods that cover the whole surface of the planet - all these things of course require NO EVIDENCE.

          Surely your thinking needs significant scientific evidence to back it up?

Oh, the irony. Oh, the hypocrisy. As for the evidence, presumably you'll put it in the same box as the evidence for evolution and mark it "pretend this doesn't exist"?
After all, everybody has a mother and father, so the fundamental assumption of your thinking goes against the life experience of 100% of people on the planet, including yourself. Your own life testifies against you! How do you justify this disregard for straightforward facts about human sexuality? You are the one with the completely unscientific viewpoint, aren’t you?
Um, what? Anyone convinced by this? I can't be bothered reading the rest of his nonsense. Rabich is crying out to get laid. If he manages that he'd give up his silly religion and never comment on Bill's site again.

Mike Marshall thinks he's being clever:
If 20 gays and 20 lesbians were the last people on earth, then they would change to save mankind from extinction. Yet here in Australia today, gays are told by the government that they cannot change to save THEMSELVES! Society doesn’t kill gays because as you’ve said before “San Francisco has the same suicide rates…”. Living the gay lifestyle kills them, as they’ve lived a lifestyle of rejecting themselves biologicly, amongst other things.Young gays will keep killing themselves because LGBT does not ever want to publicly admit that gays can change.
Riiiiiight, so gay people kill themselves because other gay people aren't admitting that yet more gay people can allegdly switch sexualities, according to barking mad religionists. Makes perfect sense.

Dameon McManus has an even better knockdown argument:
I think this is OK: If a happily married man and woman are under threat of the marriage ending because one of them decides to come out, then the gay police will have to force them to retreat. After all they are heterosexual and cannot change their sexual orientation according to the gay science.
Think about that…… Now try that argument against the homo militants and see how far it gets you.
Um, I think most people would assume the gay partner in the marriage had been gay all along and living a lie? It's unlikely that they had just switched sexuality because that doesn't happen - which is kind of the whole point?

CultureWatch is a glorious blog for exposing the stupidity, bigotry and ignorance of the extremist Christians like Muehlenberg.
