New BarbWire Columnist Wants Gay People in Prison

Matt Barber’s new site BarbWire has a new columnist. Don Boys used to be a member of the Indiana House of Representatives, where he tried mightily to pass a bill to put gay people in prison like he could in the old days. In his first column, he gleefully tells the story:

Society has fallen in love with discourtesy, darkness, and deviancy and fails to realize that this abnormal love affair will end in death. Even some Christians defend it! It will mean death to individuals, the family, the culture, and the nation. Go visit the ruins of Sodom. I have tried to make a contribution to ameliorate the problem without much success.

In defense of my bill I told him that sodomy should be a crime again to give police officials authority to stop the cruising in city parks, sex in public restrooms, and discourage molesting of little boys. I ended by saying that homosexuals want much more than to be left alone. “They want respectability. They want to move into a house in the suburbs, park matching Volvos in the driveway and be accepted as normal people; but that won’t happen as long as Christians live in this state.” In recent years, homosexuals have demanded and received not only acceptance and approval, but even applause. We are told it is even commendable and courageous to practice perversion. And even Bible-oriented church leaders have joined the chorus!…

Today, one is anathematized if he even uses the words “sodomy,” “degenerate,” or “pervert.” And while “same sex marriage” was not even considered possible, even worth discussing by decent people only five years ago, one is considered unloving, unkind, uneducated, and uncivil if he advocates the quaint notion that marriage is only between a man and a woman. And he is super-quaint if he holds that marriage is for a lifetime! He may also become unemployed for his belief in biblical decency. Yes, times are a-changing.

Yep. You lost. Get over it. As Right Wing Watch points out, the bill he refers to would have put gay people in prison for as long as 12 years for the “crime” of offending his non-existent God. Of course, I’m sure he screams bloody murder about “freedom,” a concept he clearly has no concept of.

    If Mr. Boys would like to point out its location to me on a map, I’d be happy to go visit the ruins of Sodom. Not sure what he’s hoping I’m going to see, though.

    Go visit the ruins of Sodom

    I wonder if he has ever visited “the ruins of Sodom”?

    I wonder what he found there.

    The bible describes Sodom and Gomorrah as being on the plain of the river Jordan in the southern part of Canaan. Geographically that’s in modern day west bank, near the border between Israel and Jordan, just north of the dead sea.

    While there are many bronze age archeological disgs in the area, there are few places that anyone might characterize as “ruins,” and most archeologists consider the historicity of the account to be doubtful.

    That however has not kept evangelical archeologists from pointing to a random hill north of the dead see and claiming that’s where Sodom was.

    Then why not pass laws against loitering, sexual acts in public and molesting children in general?

    Oh, he thinks only gays do such things!

    Dude! And they’ve also been calling for pilloring heretics and atheists and piercing their tongues with hot pokers, too!

    In recent years, homosexuals have demanded and received not only acceptance and approval, but even applause.

    Actually, what is generating applause is that they are standing up to bullies and succeeding in obtaining their ordinary rights and liberties. If it weren’t for bigots like Boys, then this wouldn’t be commendable at all; it would just be ordinary.

    They want to move into a house in the suburbs, park matching Volvos in the driveway and be accepted as normal people…

    How awful! We MUST stop this before they start BBQing and planting a garden!

  6. blf says

    Then why not pass laws against loitering, sexual acts in public and molesting children in general?

    That’s three laws — which is probably four more than he can count.

    And WTF is it with these attempts to conflate child sexual abuse with Teh Gay ?

    “They want respectability. They want to move into a house in the suburbs, park matching Volvos in the driveway and be accepted as normal people”

    Nooo not volvos

  8. Doug Little says

    They want to move into a house in the suburbs, park matching Volvos in the driveway and be accepted as normal people; but that won’t happen as long as Christians bigots in large numbers live in this state.”

    FIFY

    “…and discourage molesting of little boys“.
    Mr Boys wants to be just like his hero Lot, firstly (unsuccessfully) pimping out his children, then having sex with them himself.
    And he ain’t gonna tolerate no uppity homos molesting little Boys first, no sirree-bob!

    and discourage molesting of little boys

    Don’t worry Don. If you were able to get that bill passed, every gay man would hate Boys.

  11. JoeBuddha says

    Didn’t that Bible thing blame the fall of Sodom on them being such selfish bastards?

    Actually my wife and I were very much in favor of same sex marriage five years ago (much longer actually), and we’re quite “decent.” Of course our definition of decent doesn’t involve praising his invisible friend in the sky, instead we define it by how we treat people, help those who need help, do what we can to better society, and donate to organizations that help those in need.

    And Lot was saved because he was a good person and pimped out his daughters to be raped. That’s obviously the thing a decent person would do.

  15. howardhershey says

    Oh, Boys has an idea of what “freedom” means. It means that he should have th freedom to do whatever he wants to other people. Same thing as freedom meant to slave-owners and post-Reconstruction white Southern politicians.

  16. sigurd jorsalfar says

    @4 I’m willing to bet Indiana already has laws against those things. So his argument in defense of his bill is one big non-sequitur.

  17. John Pieret says

    sigurd jorsalfar @ 18:

    I’m willing to bet Indiana already has laws against those things.

    Oh, I know … But I doubt Boys does. I was just pointing out that there are better, more direct laws to be had IF that was Boys’ real intent. It wasn’t, of course, he just wants to put gays in jail because they’re “icky” and his barbaric god doesn’t like them.

    The BarbWire commenting policy nearly blew my irony meter into a low orbit:

    Posting Policy

    We have no tolerance for comments containing violence, racism, vulgarity, profanity, all caps, or discourteous behavior. Thank you for partnering with us to maintain a courteous and useful public environment where we can engage in reasonable discourse. Read More

    But employing columnists who advocate jailing homosexuals? That’s not a problem, apparently.

    And to start bursting into your bedroom in the middle of the night if one of your neighbors reports you for having anal sex with your wife….whether you were actually doing so or not.

    How “respectable” is that, Mr. Boys?

  20. says

    “They want respectability. They want to move into a house in the suburbs, park matching Volvos in the driveway and be accepted as normal people;

    Those bastards! They should be required to park their Volvos on the street!

    dogmeat: instead we define [decent] by how we treat people, help those who need help, do what we can to better society, and donate to organizations that help those in need.
    .
    Too bad their religion wasn’t founded on the teaching of somebody who asserted this, rather than preaching bigotry and hatred.
