Baylor University Replaces “Homosexual Acts” With “Deviate Behavior” In Student Conduct Code

Baylor University

Baylor University, a private Baptist school in Texas, who in the past has offered such unchristian courses as Homosexuality As A Gateway Drug. Has now taken their anti-gay rhetoric one step further by changing the words “homosexual acts” to “deviant behavior” in its students conduct code.

The Student Senate passed the Sexual Misconduct Code Non-Discrimination Act, a proposal to reword Baylor’s Sexual Misconduct Code, in the Student Senate meeting Thursday. The act proposed to remove the phrase “homosexual acts” from the code and replace it with the phrase “non-marital consensual deviate sexual intercourse.” The most recent version of the Sexual Misconduct Code was established on Jan. 15, 2007. It reads, “In all disciplinary procedures, Baylor University will seek to be redemptive in the lives of the individuals involved and to witness to the high moral standards of the Christian faith. Baylor will be guided by the understanding that sexuality is a gift from the creator God and that the purposes of this gift include (1) the procreation of human life and (2) the uniting and strengthening of the marital bond in self-giving love. These purposed are to be achieved through heterosexual relationships within marriage. Missuses of God’s gift will be understood to include but not limit to, sexual abuse, sexual harassment, sexual assault, incest, adultery, fornication, and homosexual acts.”

“To witness to the high moral standards of the Christian faith.” Newsflash for Baylor: YOUR so-called “Christian faith” has no moral standards.

And by the way “Deviate” is a VERB; “deviant” is an ADJECTIVE you homophobic morons.

Among Baylor’s “noted” alumni are Rand Paul and Louie Gohmert.  Is anyone surprised?

Scissor Sister’s Jake Shears Takes On Azealia Banks Over “Faggot” Tweets – Banks Doubles Down

Jake Shears who’s currently on hiatus from Scissor Sisters went after rapper Azealia Banks over her “faggot” Twitter attack on Perez Hilton yesterday.

GLAAD of course sent out another of their wishy-washy press releases on their blog that falls short of forcefully condemning Banks for the use of the word and are doing their usual “reaching out”:

“Our society knows that “fa**ot” is a derogatory word for gay men, and in this case it was used to attack someone in a very public altercation with hundreds of thousands of fans and young people following. It is an ugly, archaic word that was used to stigmatize a population of people who suffer high rates of violence both here in the U.S. and abroad. As far as we’ve come in this society, seeing it used by an artist many young people may look up to is painful, but even more so for those young fans, many of whom GLAAD has heard from. GLAAD has reached out to Banks’ representatives, and is working to compile stories of fans and teens who wanted to respond to the word and let others know what it feels like when they hear it.”

Well despite GLAAD’s reaching out to Banks’ representatives, it seems she really doesn’t care and claims that with herself being “bisexual” that it was quite alright to call Prez Hilton a “faggot” with a “whistling asshole” on Twitter and she’s really not all that upset about it or any backlash.

Gurl you are really one big ignorant fucking hot mess.  Thats for sure.

 

CNN’s Ashleigh Banfield Apologizes For Calling Homosexuality a ‘Voluntary Lifestyle Choice’ – VIDEO

Yesterday following a segment about Kansas Pastor Curtis Knapp, who believes the  government should kill gay people and that we should all be out into concentration camps. CNN anchor Ashleigh Banfield called homosexuality a “voluntary lifestyle choice”

“Pedophilia is not by choice, last I checked. In his sermon, Pastor Knapp blamed the Bush administration for its tolerance of gay people. Says that he claims that set the stage, in fact, for the Obama administration to endorse same-sex marriage. Like I said: they can’t make this stuff up. Unbelievable. Speechless, right? Again, we gotta outline here, when he says ‘they punish incest and pedophilia’… Please. Those things are often not by choice and are crimes. Homosexuality is a lifestyle choice by people; it is voluntary.”

Banfield realizing she made a horrible mistake and used a very poor choice of wording immediately took to Twitter to apologize.

Today Ashleigh took it one step further and on her CNN newscast today, attempting to clarify what she said and let it be known it wasn’t what she meant at all.

I made some comments yesterday that ended up  getting a lot of traction out there, not only on Twitter but elsewhere. And I  want to be very, very clear about what my comments were about. I probably  misspoke and mangled words, but I want to be very clear.

When I said that incest and pedophilia involve  people who don’t have a choice — victims who don’t have a choice — and then said  a gay relationship, you do have a choice, they are not crimes. Gay people  involved in relationships are not committing any crimes at all. However, those  who perpetrate incest and perpetrate pedophilia are committing crimes. I don’t  know that my comments were taken in that light and I certainly hope they were,  but in no way did I ever want to suggest that being gay is a choice. It is not.  And I probably used the word “lifestyle choice” — not what I meant to say at  all. Being gay is not a choice; being in a voluntary gay relationship is a  choice. It is not a crime. So I hope that at least clears up any of the comments  I made after that story of the pastor. And in no way do I agree with or stand by  any of the comments that that pastor made either.

The media should never schedule a far-right anti-gay partisan for an on-air discussion, without a “fair and balanced” approach and having gay advocate on-air at the same time to provide the counter  argument. (I am available and will do much better with the counter argument than any stuffed shirt spokesperson from the HRC by the way.)

Or better yet.  In cases such as Kansas Pastor Curtis “Govt. Should Kill Gays” Knapp just show the clip.  His bigotry and insanity, insanity and hateful words will make its own best case against him.
