Sen. Tom Coburn's Chief Of Staff: "All Pornography Is Homosexual Pornography"

Apparently among the values promoted at the Family Research Council's Values Voters Summit last weekend in Washington is hatred based on nonsense. Michael Schwartz, chief of staff for Republican Senator Tom Coburn of Oklahoma, presented a hushed crowd with a few revelations on gays. Here it is, with commentary from Cenk Uygur of the Young Turks:

Schwartz: But it is my observation that boys at that age have less tolerance for homosexuality than just about any other class of people. They speak badly about homosexuality. And that’s because they don’t want to be that way. They don’t want to fall into it. And that’s a good instinct. After all, homosexuality, we know, studies have been done by the National Institute of Health to try to prove that its genetic and all those studies have proved its not genetic. Homosexuality is inflicted on people.

How did Schwartz come to this conclusion? Why, he had one friend who was corrupted into "the homosexual lifestyle" by pornography. How much more empirical evidence does one need? Case closed!

Schwartz: And one of the things that he said to me, that I think is an astonishingly insightful remark. He said, “all pornography is homosexual pornography because all pornography turns your sexual drive inwards. Now think about that. And if you, if you tell an 11-year-old boy about that, do you think he’s going to want to go out and get a copy of Playboy? I’m pretty sure he’ll lose interest. That’s the last thing he wants." You know, that’s a, that’s a good comment. It’s a good point and it’s a good thing to teach young people. (h/t Think Progress)
