Homosexuality is "Killing People 2 to 3 Times the Rate of Smoking" Says Missouri Republican

Categories: LGBT, Politics
The following ad recently ran in The Daily American Republican of Poplar Bluff in support of the "Don't Say Gay" bill:

As the late Christopher Hitchens might say, "Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence."

This ad is full of the former and bereft of the latter.

According to Fired Up! Missouri, the guy who ran it -- Hardy Billington -- is "a Baptist Deacon and state committeeman of the 25th Senatorial District as well as committeeman for the Butler County Republican Party."

During his recent run for Poplar Bluff's school board, Billington described himself as "Pro-life, Pro-family, and Pro-Second Ammendment." Interestingly, he did not say "anti-gay."

Didn't matter. He came in last.

well, i lived in s. f. for 3 1/2 years so i've gone from thinking "straight" meant non pot smoker to being able to spot a gay from 3 blocks. i knew a nurse worked in a v d clinic and she said gays come in by the droves-80% with std's. but of course that's s. f.  i'm pro gay rights and marraige but it's true gays in s. f. are very promiscuous, it's an iternational city, gobs of gay clubs, massage parlors and the birthplace of aids in the u. s..

He's saying that smoking cock is worse than smoking cigarettes because at least you know the cigarette butt won't leave a brown ring around your mouth.

Fascinating article. I am surprised he lost his campaign for school board. Think what he could have accomplished with his totally distorted view of reality. He really thinks people choose to be gay after we encourage them. Is he in favor of tough love for smokers and favor the increased tobacco tax proposal to keep smokers alive longer?

I can tell you the sources of his studies, Paul Cameron associated with the Family Research Council. The FRC has been declared a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center which tracks hate groups around the country. Years ago Paul Cameron had his credentials revoked by the American Psychological Association for not following approved scientific research procedures and for falsifying data and findings. His research is bogus.

Glad this nutjob lost, but the fact that there are those out there who think like this should make everyones blood run cold.  The xenophobia that has risen in this country is stunningly frightening.  Yes, homosexuals are "different" than straights, but it does NOT make them any less human and deserving of civil rights.  And those who protest the loudest most likely have something they are worried about while they sit in their closet, ESPECIALLY the bible thumpers.

 Classic propaganda. People that protest are closeted. You Bolsheviks never quit do you? You destroyed and enslaved Russia, China and have started in on the USA. It won't be long before AmeriKwa is at Civil War and then we'll work out all these "differences" with people like you.

No.
No.

You're threatening to murder people that are different than you yet you compare homosexuals to "Bolsheviks" and "Communists." Please enlighten me as to how killing people with different opinions and beliefs to you is less like Communism than being a homosexual.

Is that the best you can do : just try the old "let's smear um" tactic without anything substantial to say.

You can tell AmeriKwa is finished by its bringing in the lotteries and the queers. The money is as worthless as its societal morals. The last days are upon us

Smoking leads to cancer, emphysema, etc. Homosexuality is just a different lifestyle. I'd like to see the sources for this study.

 How about STD's and HIV.  There are so many disease that effect that life style.  Most don't have just one partner.  There are many that do.

 That effects everyone, no matter if they are gay or straight.  I know I am straight and I have had many partners.  Your argument is not sound.
