Roy Ashburn ARRESTED: Anti-Gay State Sen. Got DUI After Leaving Gay Nightclub, Sources Say

Quote :
Sources report that Ashburn -- a fierce opponent of gay rights -- was driving drunk after leaving a gay nightclub; when the officer stopped the state-issued vehicle, there was an unidentified man in the passenger seat of the car.

I guess I'd be an alcoholic too if I were a self-hating closet case.

Quote :
I am deeply sorry for my actions and offer no excuse for my poor judgment. I accept complete responsibility for my conduct and am prepared to accept the consequences for what I did. I am also truly sorry for the impact this incident will have on those who support and trust me - my family, my constituents, my friends, and my colleagues in the Senate.

How about a god damned apology to the LBGT community that you've spent your entire life working against. If there weren't so many cowards out there like him maybe LBGT individuals would have more rights.

You'd think that someone in the LGBT community would have spoken up sooner...

Turns out, everyone knew anti-gay Sen. Roy Ashburn was gay, but nobody said anything

What kind of upbringing must you have to deny something so basic?

Why the hell didn't Perez Hilton out him? I don't approve of him outing people that aren't harming anyone, but then he gets the chance to out someone who is harming people and he didn't do it.

What are you talking about? Does anybody even know what an actual right is anymore? Rolling Eyes

In some states hate crime legislation makes it a greater crime to assault a gay or a homeless person than a 13 year old straight kid. So do kids have less rights than gays & the homeless? As some define "a right" it would seem so.

You claim gays are persecuted? There's an African country trying to pass a law to put gays in jail for life for getting married.

Homeless people have been killed,maimed,set on fire,etc for no reason other than being homeless and living on the street. It's sickening what some of these people have been subjected to. Google 'homeless murdered' and you'll see what I mean.

Yeah, I read stories every day about straight kids being attacked because they are straight. Give me a frickin' break!

And I see that our Congress is condemning Uganda for it. So what's your point? Are you saying that there is no discrimination against gays because we don't sentence them to life in prison?

So what's your point?

The point is gays are not being persecuted in this country any more than a visitor at a Philadelphia sporting event. Do those fans also deserve hate crime status? The laws we have already grant rights to citizens and it is wrong to create special interest groups with super rights. Now Uganda, THAT'S persecution! But if most Americans no not wish to embrace homosexuality the government has no business getting involved or giving gays or any other special interest group more rights and privileges than any other citizen.

Homosexuality is a choice of conduct. As long as it is harmless and between consenting adults those who practice it are protected under their rights as citizens, as it should be.

Not so sure it's about the "rights" of the victims rather than the dangers to the public:

Quote :
From a strictly preventive point of view, this distinction between crimes makes sense. Someone who intended to cause harm and took steps to make that harm happen has had every opportunity to turn away from committing a crime. They didn’t stop. It isn’t unreasonable to decide that such a person is less likely to stop the next time they are tempted to violence than someone who has committed violence out of carelessness.

Someone who hurts or kills another person because this person is homosexual will have many, many more opportunities to interact with homosexuals over time. If the victim’s sexual orientation is all that’s required to incite violence, this is a dangerous criminal indeed.

The criminal’s motivation is also relevant in terms of the effect such crimes have on society as a whole. The intent of bias crimes is to send a message to a group that they will not be tolerated. As such, the number of victims of a crime motivated by bias is much larger than the number of people being injured.

U.S. law has already recognized the interest of the federal government in dealing with crimes intended to intimidate and coerce beyond their immediate victims. Federal law addresses such crimes under RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act) when they are motivated by profit. These bills address a smaller group of crimes when motivated by bias.

It is? Is heterosexuality a choice too? Did you just wake up and "decide" one day to be hetero or was it a long involved process weighing the pros and cons of both orientations? The fact is that homosexuality is no more a "choice" than the color of skin you're born with.

Choice of conduct; a choice to act on the given impulses. I can see that. But yeah, I would think the same would apply to heterosexuals, too.

He's got a weird argument, though. By that logic, the African Americans didn't have a legitimate grievance during the civil rights movement 'cause they weren't being treated and murdered like slaves anymore. Rolling Eyes

Yes, homosexuals don't have it as bad as some do elsewhere, but I cannot fathom how that justifies the way we are treating them here.

When it comes to race, I try to be color blind. I've heard that isn't right, though.

When it comes to sexual orientation, I just ignore it (unless it was someone I was planning to - you know). Of course, since I'm married, that means I basically just ignore it.

Am I being politically incorrect with either situation?

Meh... I don't think so. In most cases, I consider them both to be a non issue.

Powerful stuff. IMHO, the best way for the LGBT community to fight back is to "out" all of the politicians who are guilty of this kind of hypocrisy. There is little doubt that the LGBT community knows who most of these politicians are... I suspect that the gay community has an ethical problem with "outing" people, but when it comes to politicians who are secretly gay, yet undercut gay rights at every turn, then I think that the gay community should make an exception and expose every single one of them.

I saw "Outrage". It was on HBO some months ago but documentaries like this never gain traction unless of course you're caught playing footsie in an airport bathrooms. I can think of a few other Republicans that belong in it. Lindsay Graham R-SC and Mitch McConnel R-KY, would be a good start.

I didn't see it. I don't have HBO. It looks like powerful stuff.

Perez Hilton doesn't have a problem with it. Unfortunately, he's out there outing celebrities that aren't harming anyone.

Interviews with associates and confessions from anti-gay politicians whose homosexuality has been exposed are juxtaposed with their voting records, painting a picture of hypocrisy and deceit that the filmmaker alleges is aided by the news media.

I at first, thought for a long time that it was a gene defect...now I'm starting to think it's a rage pr cult. Well, that it's grown out of proportion. So, now I don't know, except for the gays I know, they claim they were born in the wrong body...but they are good friends, just a few I know...and I have more of a blast making jokes about them...and they laugh their butts off right back at me. It just seems too many have popped out of the closet to seem real.

You had Madonna and Britney kissing on stage, so I think some of that influence the wrong kids...

I always felt that everyone should not be exposing their sexual preferences. Why toot your horn when married couples don't go around announcing they are straight.

What do I care if you are attracted to your own sex? Give them the legal rights for legal reassons, insurance, etc. Be done with it.

My daughter lives in LA. Almost everyone she knows is gay, but she doesn't judge them and it doesn't matter to her...she's just trying to find someone straight, independent, and smart like her. She's doing a darn good job of taking care of herself...but she has many gay friends, black, white, every race all across America...it's something you either accept or walk away from. She plays jokes on them when their on tour...like hiding a little ole' lady in the bathroom while on tour and allowing a gay guy to go in their, filming it, he starts moaning like he's having sex with her, backfiring her joke, they both come out laughing. That was on the tour bus....

I have friends (male) that are great...they laugh when I poke 'em with jokes. It's something they feel they were born with, not something they chose to be.

Back to the subject, regarding politicians that are gay voting against gay rights, getting caught...America has lost its values, its integrity and trust on every politician in the US. No matter who we think will serve us no longer keep their word after the election. We're the real loosers.

I know longer believe the gov't is about serving us. I believe they just want to serve themselves. I no longer have faith in Washington.
