Michigan’s rabidly anti-gay Republican National Committeeman Dave Agema showed up on Bryan Fischer’s show this week to be comforted by his new BFF and play the victim and comparing himself to Phil Robertson and Evander Holyfield and others who have supposedly been persecuted for simply telling the truth about us nasty gays. Agema vowed to stand on principle and never to resign from the RNC rather than become a victim of “political correctness.”
“Political correctness is taking the place of freedom of speech,” Agema told Fischer. “And if you look at what’s happened just here in the news media and particularly in Hollywood in the Grammys, they are just shoving this stuff down our throats and very few people are speaking up. And if you do speak up, you can expect to be slammed, and that’s exactly what they call it, slamming and jamming, what they’re doing to me right now”
This evening I decided I was going to email the committeeman and let him know my personal feelings on his recent statements at a holiday lunch in Berrien County when I stumbled (actually basically slapped in the face) by a huge link on his website. It reads,
“The Case for Traditional Marriage: “Information is NOT the enemy…
it is the TOOL for making proper decisions!”
So I decided to review the information that is apparently “not the enemy”. I pulled up a webpage with about 20-25 different links. My assumption is that each of these articles somehow make his “point” as to why homosexuality is such a danger to society. I decided to take a look into some of these articles, to try and see how this man’s brain works.
A great passage from an article he uses to prove his point is the the Family Research Council’s website. It reads as follows:
Homosexual activists attempt to portray their lifestyle as normal and healthy, and insist that homosexual relationships are the equivalent in every way to their heterosexual counterparts. Hollywood and the media relentlessly propagate the image of the fit, healthy, and well-adjusted homosexual. The reality is quite opposite to this caricature which was recently conceded by the homosexual newspaper New York Blade News:
Reports at a national conference about sexually transmitted diseases indicate that gay men are in the highest risk group for several of the most serious diseases. . . . Scientists believe that the increased number of sexually tranmitted diseases (STD) cases is the result of an increase in risky sexual practices by a growing number of gay men who believe HIV is no longer a life-threatening illness.Instability and promiscuity typically characterize homosexual relationships. These two factors increase the incidence of serious and incurable stds. In addition, some homosexual behaviors put practitioners at higher risk for a variety of ailments, as catalogued by the following research data:
It goes on to list several things they think link the LGBT community to HIV/AIDS and why practitioners of LGBT patients should be careful.
What I found very interesting is that Agema uses a LGBT advocacy website to try and prove his point.
GLMA (Gay and Lesbian Medical Association) is a website for healthcare professionals trying to advance LGBT equality. He put a link to their page that discusses what gay men should discuss with their healthcare professional. The website discusses and urges open communication between gay men and their healthcare professionals in order to promote safe sex as well overall healthier living habits for their patients.
It is obvious by Dave Agema’s website that he is obsessed with preventing equality. The campaign video on his website even slams the Republican party stating “they aren’t conservative enough”.
A man so obsessed with hurting a large group of people, a man so consumed with preventing people from having equal rights is not something we haven’t seen before. History is very clear in these situations. He will lose. He will fall and the rest of us who fight and stand for what’s right will win.
The next step is for people to join together and let the RNC know that people like Dave Agema has no place in American politics, he needs to be removed.
I have already contacted him through his email and informed him that I am gay yet I am not dying of HIV, my next step is contacting the RNC and letting them know that people like Dave Agema are the ones ruining the American society.
Needless to say, I still don’t understand how this man’s brain works.
