I just came across this yesterday:

The Climate Change Solution No One Will Talk About

FTA:

Talking about population control requires walking a tightrope: There’s nuance between encouraging access to birth control and a China-style one-child policy, but that doesn’t always translate in the retelling, and it can all too easily sound like a developed world leader telling people in the developing world that they should stop having children—especially because much of the population boom is coming from regions like sub-Saharan Africa.

And there’s a coalition of critics ready to pounce on any speaker who slips, or even to twist the words of those who don’t.

[…]

But the Woodrow Wilson Institute researchers are quick to point out that they’re not talking about touchy “population control” strategies like forced sterilization (prominently employed and quickly abandoned in India in the 1970s) or China’s one-child policy. Rather, they’re focusing on “voluntary family planning”—emphasis on the “voluntary”—programs that countries are already looking at. Sex education has been linked to reduced fertility rates, as has distribution of contraception.

Because homosexuality has been so effective at controlling the population in the last 2000 years…

Mr. Perkins?

Get help.

Stephen T,

Just goes to show that contrary to their name, the “Family Research Counsel” doesn’t do much research. Paranoid Fundamentalist Counsel would be a much better name for them.

Go home Perkins, you’re drunk.

And to think if compulsory voting was law in this country, maybe we all wouldn’t have to deal with this type of horse shit controlling both houses of Congress,, just because of a very agitated and propagandized minority of the population of this country will be the ones voting in mass.

Our apathetic asses get what we deserve I guess, but its just so sad that the ones that will inevitably say I told you so will have to suffer through it too.

There’s this anti-life agenda, there’s a total anti-human, anti-life, “human beings are a virus,†type of mentality,’ the caller said.

OK, but enough about fundamentalist Christianity….

Doesn’t it just make you want to run from anything with “family, American, liberty, freedom, patriot, or values on it?
Seriously. Anymore, I see a lawn with an American flag on a flagpole and I really wonder. Wrapped in a flag, with a brick painted as a Bible, hating others while espousing what “God wants” and denying Christ’s teachings. About as fucked up as one can get. If their hell is true, they will be there.

So wait, Tony Perkins is saying that the only thing stopping him from having exclusively gay sex are laws against homosexuality. I think his issues may be more personal here.

Also, since I first heard about the “conspiracy” to reduce the number of humans, the global population has grown by about 3 billion. Worst. Conspiracy. Ever.

I suspect the amount of closeted Republicans, who wind up being self loathing and homophobic, is quite large. Just think. If there was no stigma attached to “being” gay, they would be riding cock in a heartbeat. Some do it on the sly, others just suppress it and take it out on society. Just my observation. That’s what I hear when they talk about the “breakdown” of “society” and the gay “agenda”. I can see Tony in fetish Fascist drag. I really can. And I’m not gay.
He’s a 5000 Watt projector. He’s obsessed with it.

Seriously the global and US population has grown immensely since gay rights became a big political issue. Perkins is just another right wing sexually repressed freak.
