Wingnuts have always been obsessed with purity and contamination, but this weekend’s little “Stand With The Scouts” webcast from the Family Research Council hate group is a doozy.
The first half of this supercut (put together by Right Wing Watch) features a spooky pastor-like figure explaining that we are living at the “end of days.” It is worth noting that apocalyptic Christians have always believed that they are living in the End Times. It’s as silly now as it was in 45 AD. The next section features a Boy Scout who explains that gay sex is “unclean,” according to Boy Scout law. That’s a radical interpretation of the text, of course, but this is a Family Research Council event — we shouldn’t expect anything overly intellectual. Then Tony Perkins comes on to assert, based on no evidence besides the putrid thoughts in his brain, that DADT repeal has caused lots of problems in the military, and therefore the Boy Scouts shouldn’t change their policies. Finally, another Scout does the “I’m so creeped out” thing, where he says “but iiiiii dunnnooooo what i would doooo if another Scout came on me!” Why they always think we’re interested in them, I do not know. It’s really kind of sad, as wingnuts don’t tend to be attractive people in heart, mind or body.
