Once Herman Cain takes the White House, what will be the Atlantan’s first executive order as Chaplain-In-Chief? Send the homos to the showers so they can scrub away the gay.
Cain is riding his anti-gay express from his Atlanta home to the top of the GOP presidential scrum and Wednesday defiantly proclaimed that being gay is a choice because it can be washed away.
The exchange came between Cain and Piers Morgan during an hour-long interview on CNN. Morgan pushed Cain on his view that being gay is a choice. When challenged, Cain says homosexuality is quite different from being black and here’s how:
Cain: I think it’s a sin because of my biblical beliefs and, although people don’t agree with me, I happen to think that it is a personal choice.
Morgan: You believe that?
Cain: I believe that.
Morgan: You think people wait — you believe people get to a certain age and say, I want to be homosexual?
Cain: Let me turn it around to you. What does science show? Show me evidence other than opinion and you might cause me to reconsider that…Where is the evidence?
Morgan: You’re a commonsense guy. You genuinely believe that millions of Americans wake up in their late teens normally and go, you know what, I kind of fancy being a homosexual? You don’t believe that, do you?
Cain: Piers, you haven’t given me any evidence to believe otherwise.
Morgan: My gut instinct, Herman, tells me that it has to be a natural thing.
Cain: So it’s your gut instinct versus my gut instincts. I respect their right to make that choice. You don’t see me bashing them. I respect them to have the right to make that choice. I don’t have to agree with it. That’s all I’m saying
Morgan: It would be like a gay person saying, Herman, you made a choice to be black.
Cain: You know that’s not the case. You know I was born black.
Morgan: Maybe if they say that, they would find that offensive.
Cain: Piers, Piers. This doesn’t wash off. I hate to burst your bubble.
Morgan: I don’t think being homosexual washes off.
That Cain said again that being gay is a choice is nothing new. It’s one in a long line of anti-gay babble he’s espoused on the campaign trail. He’s also defended a GOP debate crowd that booed a gay solider, expressed his desire to impeach President Obama over gay marriage and reminded us that the gays are sinners.
It’s no wonder the former pizza king makes (non-gay) Georgians proud.
