Recently Rightwing Watch found David Barton saying something stupid, and nonsensical again.
Tell me Mr Barton, if HIV /AIDS is really God’s punishment for our sexual “sins” such as homosexuality, why is it that innocent people who get brutally raped by someone with the disease can get infected? Wouldn’t God have set it up in such a way that no one would get the disease that did not actually “deserved” it? Also that off course is even assuming homosexuality is wrong and is actually something that deserves punishment. Also how do you explain all those gay people who live long happy lives, who never get a single sexually transmitted disease? You know, as much as you may not like it, they actually do exist. They’re not like Santa or the Tooth fairy.
Also Contrary to what you have stated, there actually have been successful HIV / AIDS vaccine tests, so you’re wrong again. There already is a promising vaccine for HIV / AIDS. Why has God allowed this, when you insisted that he never would? Do you really know the mind of God, like you seem to think that you do?
Tell me Mr. Barton since you’re such a “good historian,” did Alan Turing, the heroic scientist who helped crack the Enigma Code, and help the Allies defeat the Nazis, did he deserve to go to jail for the “sin” of Sodomy? Did he deserve that, in-spite of all the countless lives he saved? Where you upset when the British royal family recently posthumous pardoned him for something that most people nowadays outside of your circle, don’t even think should be a crime? Did you not know that Turing was gay, or do you think his homosexuality was a fabrication, to make “the evil” gays look good? Turing was a hero, but because he was gay, and he lived in a time when most people thought like you, he had to stay in the closet and live in fear. Contrary to what you will insist, and most people thought back than, gay people can’t stop being gay. Sexual orientation is hardwired.
Tell me why he ( or anyone else for that matter ) deserved to be punished for being attracted to someone of the same gender. Tell me why homosexual sex is so wrong, without resorting to the Bible, the type of fake “Christian Nation” history that people like you promote, or pseudoscience? You can’t, can you?
