Wiles: We’ve Been ‘Spiritually Sodomized’ by Obama

Here’s a hint for the wingnuts: If your rhetoric is so idiotic that even Bishop Harry Jackson thinks you’ve gone too far, you might want to dial it back a bit. Right wing radio host Rick Wiles had Jackson on his show and, during his introduction, said this:

Wiles: Last year, Barack Obama spiritually sodomized the US armed forces by compelling American generals to accept his demand that the military alter its code of moral conduct and permit homosexuals and lesbians to openly serve in the military.

Furthermore, he commanded the military to extend financial benefits to same-sex couples in the military. Additionally, military chapels on US military bases were ordered to permit homosexual marriage ceremonies inside the facilities.

The Boy Scouts of America is the next target of the socialist Obamanistas. Last week the Irving, Texas-based organization delayed a decision until May on whether the scouting organization will change its rules of conduct to allow homosexuals to serve as scout masters, troop leaders, and as Boy Scouts.

What will be the spiritual consequences of the American people allowing Barack Obama to spiritually sodomize the nation? Bishop Harry Jackson, Jr is on the telephone; I’m going to him that question.

Bishop Jackson, welcome to the program.

Jackson: Well Rick, I’m glad to be with you. You have quite a way with words. That was an intense introduction.

Wiles: Am I being over-dramatic in saying that Barack Obama has spiritually sodomized the nation?

Jackson: In some ways. Let me say it this way, your summary is clear, concise, and it’s true but I would say it like this: his administration is, in fact, the culmination of the downward cycle, morally, that I believe our nation has been in for some time.

Spiritual sodomy does sound like fun though, doesn’t it?

    Sounds like he’s engaging in wishful fantasizing.

    It’s not JUST for Catholic priests anymore!

  3. Ethan Savickas:

    At this point I’m not sure that “socialist” has any meaning anymore. It seems to be sprinkled into American political rhetoric with the same frequency and with much the same meaning bestowed upon the rest of the sentence that “like” is in some forms of casual English speech these days.

  4. jesseneedham:

    “spiritual sodomy” reminds me of the character from american pie who discovered a way to have a really long orgasm.

  5. Blondin:

    A downward cycle? That’s one of those cycles with the front wheel smaller than the back wheel, isn’t it?

  6. richardelguru:

    Nor only don’t I have a spirit, but the spirit that I don’t have hasn’t got an arse!
     
    (or does he mean doing something with a bottle of Laphroaig or Lagavulin that would totally ruing that subtle peaty taste?)

  7. jesseneedham:

    like nazi communist?

  8. tynk:

    I am at the point where I am just worn out, between the rape references, the homophobia, sexual shaming, the pure hate and bigotry… I do not understand why they despise me so much.

    @6 richardelguru
    While I do enjoy the occasional Laphroaig, I have never heard it described with a subtle peaty taste before.

  9. hamstur:

    What kind of lube would that require? Ectoplasm?

  10. Rabidtreeweasel:

    Is he aware that lesbians are homosexual or is he really that stupid?

  11. richardelguru:

    @8 You probably have to drink it a bottle at a time!
    Anyway the Lagavulin makes it seem subtle.
    (My wife thinks I could save money by sloshing some cheap hootch around in a used ash tray and drinking that instead)

  12. patricksimons:

    Spiritual sodimized as opposed to the physiical variety engaged in by so many clergymen.

  13. marcus:

    I was wondering why I woke up with a sore butt this morning.

  14. Strewth:

    I’m from Canada. American left-wingers are so right wing they’re right of our right-wingers.

  15. lofgren:

    Given that the military published multiple reports recommending the repeal of DADT, it’s safe to say in this case that they were literally asking for it.

  16. eric:

    Obama should do his next PR gig wearing a t-shirt with the slogan “Who’s your President?”

    More seriously, what does the BSA have to do with any of this? AFAIK, there is zero excutive branch action related to this private club’s policy-making.

  17. abb3w:

    Oral sex also counts as sodomy.

  18. DaveL:

    As I’ve always said, I have yet to encounter a use of the word “spiritual” that would not be better served by either “mental”, “emotional”, or “imaginary”.

    In this case, it definitely “imaginary”. The only question is why Wiles puts so much energy into imagining acts of sodomy.

  19. gridironmonger:

    Why do so many homophobes insist on using sex analogies every time they open their yaps?

  20. pacal:

    Talk about projection. I’m just amazed about how many so-called “conservatives” think about anal sex.

  21. jnorris:

    Just how hateful does one have to be to be so blind to actual evidence? There are many good reasons to dislike Pres Obama and homosexuality ain’t one. In fact it is the most lazy and dumbass criticisms one can make.

  22. Tobinius:

    I always thought that “Spiritual sodomy” was what religions were all about – not that I would have used that particular phrase to express that thought.

  23. dugglebogey:

    If you are that fervently, frothingly virulently anti-gay, you really need to look deep into yourself, because that means you’re probably gay.

  24. Nemo:

    I like the image of chapels being given orders. My guess is that they just continue to sit there like the inanimate buildings they are. Or, were they resisting, holding their doors shut, chiming (since they can’t talk), “No gay marriages in me!”?

    On another note, I really wish people would stop saying things like this:

    I’m from Canada. American left-wingers are so right wing they’re right of our right-wingers.

    I’ve followed enough of Canadian politics to know that this is not fucking true. You could fairly say that the Overton window is to the left of where it is in the U.S., but not by that much. That goes for the Europeans, too.

  25. John Hinkle:

    …whether the scouting organization will change its rules of conduct to allow homosexuals to serve …

    What does “allowing homosexuals to serve” have to do with “rules of conduct”? I’m trying here, and I’ve even got my helper, Mr. Bourbon. I can’t seem to connect a change in the “rules of conduct” with allowing a type of person to serve.

    *glug glug*

    Nope. Still can’t. Whatever it is they’re smoking or snorting, I’ll pass. I have enough problems.

  26. Rip Steakface:

    Spiritual Sodomy would be a *great* name for a band.

  27. mithrandir:

    @dugglebogey: Not necessarily. Virulent homophobia, in my experience, better correlates with a certain variety of misogyny, along with a willful misunderstanding of how homosexual relationships work: A misogynist would be horrified at the idea that a man would treat him the way he himself would treat a woman, and they think that gay sex is about one party taking the female role.

    Here’s my rule. If the homophobe’s rhetoric focuses on fear of sexual assault by a man, he’s probably a misogynist; if he focuses on “overcoming temptation” and “gay lifestyle”, he’s closeted. (Note also that this can be a both/and rule.)

  28. yazikus:

    Is it just me that found out of all of the violent and hateful rhetoric squeezed into this mess, he used the term Obamanista, which to me, just sounds like a really peppy Obama supporter, maybe with lots of Obama pins on their messenger bag and a Hope Change T-Shirt. Not so scary sounds. Odd choice?

  29. yazikus:

    *scary sounding*

  30. Modusoperandi:

    Nemo “I’ve followed enough of Canadian politics to know that this is not fucking true.”
    Watching a CFL game on that staticky UHF channel from across the lake is not “following Canadian politics”. Nor is watching the Leafs lose.
    Watching a bunch of kids having a snowball fight, however…

  31. andrew:

    “Spiritual sodomy does sound like fun though, doesn’t it?”

    Isn’t that like when especially devout mormons will go to another planet and become the god of it and then populate it with spirit babies with their spirit wives? I guess ‘spiritual sodomy’ is when you do it in the spirit ass.

  32. leftwingfox:

    yazikus: It sounds like a portmanteau of “Obama” and “barista”.

    First they make you a latte, then they ask you for CHANGE!

    Heh, spiritual goatse…

  33. yazikus:

    left wing fox: exactly!
    I think the problem is that he was trying to be creative.
    Sidenote: laughing while drinking carbonated beverages is not a good idea.

  34. frog:

    @9

    I can’t decide whether the appropriate quote is “He slimed me!” or “We could really bust some heads–in a spiritual sense, of course.”

  35. epiblast:

    mithrandir knows what’s up. Homophobia by men correlates very strongly with misogyny and a fear of being “the woman”, although homophobes that talk a lot about how goshdarn TEMPTING homosexuality is are likely to be closeted. They’re also likely to think that you’re not gay unless you actually have sex with those of the same gender, whereas EVERYBODY is attracted to them sometimes, right? (That’s the only context in which “tempted to be gay” makes any sense: The desire/attraction is already there, and the temptation is toward actions.)

    Bears repeating plus I’m putting that one into my favorite file of quotes.

    Never mind the negro part, which of those words would would you substitute for the genre title?

  38. Jafafa Hots:

    Spiritual Music is perfectly fine as a designation.

    It’s music that is emotional and inspired by the imaginary.

  42. Marcus Ranum:

    I spiritually gave him a Dirty Sanchez to go with Obama’s sodomy. Because maybe two wrongs will make a right, or something like that.

  43. Nemo:

    @dingojack #39: That nearly-illegible and context-free graph still doesn’t support “our right-wingers are left of your left-wingers”, except in certain areas: “Religion” (duh), “Values” (whatever that means), and “National interest”. On “Ideology”, “Military action”, and “Climate change”, our left is well left of their right.

    gridironmonger at 19, you may just have the cart before the horse there.

    Thoughts:

    a. so it’s consensual?

    b. At least America won’t end up spiritually knocked up.

  46. dingojack:

    Nemo – I feel your pain bud, I too need glasses (but clearly not as bad as you).
    Since your poor eyesight is making you as weak as a kitten in the ‘google-fu’ department, allow me to assist your poor invalid self. Here (now that wasn’t so hard was it?)

    Aww,feeling better now, or do you want me to get the nurse to give you a nice colonic?*

  47. stace:

    Weil, if Obama can be rightly accused of committing spiritual sodomy on the American people, then what the Republicans have inflicted upon us can only be characterized as a spiritual Cleveland steamer.

  48. reasonbe:

    oh crap. I just thought I woke up on the wrong side of the bed today.

  49. Ibis3, Blighter and Trampler since 1971:

    leftwingfox & yazikus

    It’s a portmanteau of Obama and Sandinista (courtesy of a trip in the TARDIS–or should that be a DeLorean–back to 1986).

  50. kermit.:

    iangould: b. At least America won’t end up spiritually knocked up.

    Yes, but we could catch an STD*.
