Liberal Hack Ezra Klein ‘Mystified’ At Response From The Left Over Hiring Gay Writer

The liberal hack writer Ezra Klein is “mystified” at the response from the left over his hiring of a gay writer who , shocker of all shocks, doesn’t always agree with the gay community and their war against anyone who doesn’t agree with them:

The backlash to Abrosino’s hire, from liberal sites like Media Matters and America Blog, began almost immediately after he was hired. Those sites and others fault Ambrosino, a gay Christian, for believing that someone who is anti-same sex marriage is not automatically homophobic, that being gay is a choice, that people shouldn’t have immediately dismissed “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson for his anti-gay remarks and for expressing warm feelings toward Liberty University founder Jerry Falwell, despite his vehement disapproval of gays.

Omg, the horror. Abrosino expected to be ostracized at Liberty University, a Christian college founded by Jerry Falwell, but found the opposite. Most didn’t care that he was gay. He actually had the gall to say that just because you don’t believe in same-sex marriage that doesn’t automatically make you a homophobe.

Ace:

But then he truly crossed the line when he dared to venture the idea that not all on the left are perfect moral paragons with impeccable levels of psychological and emotional centeredness, but sometimes — get this — demonstrate their own form of ugly hostility to those perceived as The Other:

The world and the people in it are really wonderful with just a smidge of ugliness about them. I think the really vocal anti-gay Christians display this smidge, but I also think the really vocal anti-Christian gays display it as well.

But you know how intolerant the liberals are, and boy did that intolerance shine on this hiring. Ezra asked liberals to practice what they preach….yeeeeaaaah. That’s gonna happen.

Toe the line Klein, toe the line.

    @George Wells:

    In the Hardwick dissent, Scalia argued for 21 pages why the SCOTUS should not overturn anti-sodomy laws. I read them,

    Why would anyone read 21 pages about sodomy. Couldn’t you find out, in 30 minutes with your boy friend, all anyone needs to know about sodomy?

    I am more that adequately familiar with the etymology of words. What I am good at and you and Redteam are not is the currently correct usage of words.

    Would you read that sentence (an exact quote) and point out if there are any errors in it. (especially spelling and punctuation) Now, I ordinarily wouldn’t make a point of that, because I know that sometimes a computer can make errors, but since you are so proudly pointing out how you always, compared to Retire and I, use words ‘correctly’, well, I just couldn’t resist. Hint, there are more than 3 errors.

    You really are not very good at history, George. Maybe you should stop trying to argue it.

    That is his real problem Retire, he doesn’t know much about history and he is only trying to one-up you in order to try to prove his (actually a lack of) knowledge. His grammar is not nearly as good as he thinks either.

    “Bastardize the Bible?
    Where did I say that? Oh, that’s right; I didn’t.”

    Your words (post #18) were (copied):

    “Just as you bastardized the history of the Bible written in English (including Middle English), and the statements of Justice Scalia, you seem to lack the ability to research the etymology of words. You were unaware of the etymology of the term “homosexual”, so I have no doubt that you are just as uninformed on the use of the term “gay”, particularly as it is applied to men, and its modern application.”

    “What, now you are proud to be using an out-dated dictionary? (At least you use one – I don’t think Redteam has one.)
    Your arrogance is showing again, George, assuming that I own only ONE dictionary.”

    The logic construction of “At least you own one” includes the possibility that you own more than one, which is not the same as owning ONLY one. I did not make the asinine assumption that you own ONLY one dictionary.
    If you clean up your logic, you won’t waste so much of your time pissing into the wind.

    “Why would anyone read 21 pages about sodomy?”

    Funny how the uninformed presume to speak authoritatively on a subject.
    Retire05 had suggested that I “bastardized” Antonin Scalia’s Hardwick dissent. Don’t you think that someone would have to read that dissent BEFORE attacking what is being said ABOUT IT?

    “His grammar is not nearly as good as he thinks either.”

    When did I say I had good grammer? What would make you THINK that I believed that?

    I was a scientist, not an English teacher.
    And I have the decency not to attack your writing style or language proficiency, as neither are relevant to the arguments being made.

    If you didn’t spend so much time trying to spin what you, and others, actually said, you would not have to resort to slamming someone else’s logic.

    And I have the decency

    Sorry, decency and George Wells are not compatible. If you had any decency, you would not have been so descriptive, as you have been more than once in the past, while describing your sexual exploits. “Decent” people don’t get their jollies off by posting such trash, as you do, on a website. Me thinks you suffer from Napoleon Syndrome.

    @Redteam: My disagreement with you is over the % of homosexuals that are “born that way.” You profess it’s around 50% which, as you suggest, is much higher than many at F.A. proclaim.I say it’s 99%+. Could you choose to be gay? Even you are not that strong willed.

    I suggested some research. Unlike Redteam, I keep a Webster’s dictionary handy, consult it frequently and use words correctly.

    Could I choose to be gay? not after having been born normal. Had I been born so that I didn’t have a sexual preference, then I suppose I could choose to swing either direction. I’ll repeat this again. I think people are born 100% female at one end of the spectrum and 100% male at the other end and I think that there are some all along the spectrum. I would put most on the ends. I think some people are born to not give a damn about sex in either direction, those choose their direction, if they have one. I think only about 3% or less are homosexual, no matter which way they got there. I had thought that George might have been born that way, but lately he’s been talking about having sex with women and how much he enjoyed it, so I’m beginning to think he may have made a choice, even though he ‘might’ have been inclined. Apparently at some point he was in the process of ‘deciding’. Just as some people are born with loose screws in their brains and are pedophiles or serial killers, I think that some just don’t care about sex at all and some are overly possessed with it.

    Never seen ZZ Top (live) but music is good.

    Check GW’s post #14 where he said

    IN FACT, the best sex I ever had was with a woman. As a physical, genetic male, I am constructed to have sex with a female, and doing so is certainly PHYSICALLY more satisfying than anything I could ever do with other men.

    He did NOT say that although he had sex with more than one woman, he did NOT enjoy it. He said it was the best sex he ever had. Now that leaves us with two options: a) he had sex with a woman that was the best sex he ever had and DID enjoy it (being able to rate the quality of the sex) or b) he doesn’t enjoy sex (which I seriously doubt he meant)

    Most people would read what George wrote and get the impression that he thinks the best sex he ever had was with a woman. Kind of a strange statement from a guy who claims to have known he was gay from a very, VERY young age. Why would a gay guy have sex with a woman in the first place? Or was it just the “any port in a storm” philosophy which is really demeaning to the women he had sex with that they were nothing more than an outlet for his sexual urges.

    “I had thought that George might have been born that way, but lately he’s been talking about having sex with women and how much he enjoyed it, so I’m beginning to think he may have made a choice.”

    I think that you got what I TRIED to say backwards. I accept full responsibility for not making myself clear, as you have adequately pointed out my shortcomings in the writing skills department. I’ll try again:

    My homosexual orientation was evident AT LEAST 14 years before I ever had sex (as in: with another person). My first encounters were ALL with other males. I CHOSE to perform sexually with two women. The choice was out of necessity. The first heterosexual encounter was a “set-up” orchestrated by officers of my naval unit for the purpose of determining my sexual orientation. (Remember that homosexuals were expelled from the services upon discovery.) The other heterosexual encounter was with a woman who had marital designs on me, and I was reluctant to entirely disappoint her, as I expected that she would broadcast my failure, “outing” me.

    It was a long time ago, I was young, I was not out, and it was a very conflicted period of my life. I am not proud that I did not have the courage back then to stand up for who I really was. I am now.

    Sex with those women was physically satisfying. Masturbation is physically satisfying, but masturbating doesn’t make you a homosexual OR a heterosexual OR an asexual. What you ARE depends upon where your mind is at when you are “performing.” If you masturbate thinking about Mario Lopez, you’re gay. If you copulate with a woman while thinking of Mario Lopez, you’re gay.

    Frankly, I would think that you, as a man, would not need to have this explained.
    When you “did it” with your wife, were YOU thinking of Mario Lopez?

    Ultimately, the whole question of gay marriage will be resolved not if, but when the Supreme Court throws out the remaining state laws and state constitutional amendments forbidding it. None of these issues turn upon your belief that someone is or isn’t gay, and the question of whether YOU accept gay marriages or not is moot. If you choose to cry out against gay marriage in public, I will cry out in public against you, not because I don’t respect your right to voice your opinion, but because I have the same right, and I wouldn’t want anyone to think that your opinion was the only one.

    i.e. "The Navy made me do it." Lame

    The other heterosexual encounter was with a woman who had marital designs on me, and I was reluctant to entirely disappoint her, as I expected that she would broadcast my failure, “outing” me.

    i.e. “She wanted to marry me so I felt the necessity to perform for her like a trained dog because if I didn’t, she would tell everyone what a loser I am in bed and that would make others think I was gay, which I am and besides that, the poor girl was so needy that I didn’t want to disappoint her so it really was an act of mercy.” LAMER

    You’re really obsessed with this crap, aren’t you, George? “Decent” gentlemen don’t discuss with others the sex that they have with their wives. You seem to be fixated on talking about the act of sex.

    I see Retire has already straightened you out on that.

    I doubt if many are “born to not give a damn about sex.”

    As I said. I also doubt that many are born homosexual, probably about the same number, and about that many serial killers and pedophiles, though I do not equate any of those.

    This sounds like the opposite situation of those that are straight that decides to ‘try it’. Sometimes it ‘takes’, sometimes it doesn’t. If it does, you have a homosexual by choice, not by birth.

    @rich wheeler: you’re confused again Rich, Retire was quoting where George said he ‘chose to perform’, it wasn’t me.

    RT ‘Those that are straight and decide to try it.” Kinda like I’m a beer drinker but I think I’ll try a glass of wine? Are you serious?

    I know very well that you have likely drank beer, wine and hard stuff. And I’d say that if you did, it was because you made a decision to do so. I do not think most straight people decide to try homosexuality, but I do believe that some do. Especially if their actual sexuality is not clear.
