The last time I tried to testify before the City Council, in opposition to the
confirmation of Fred Thomas as Chief of Police, I was illegally prevented from testifying
and illegally evicted from this Chamber. Later, it was falsely stated by Councilmember
John Ray that there had been no opposition to Fred Thomas' confirmation. The truth is, my
opposition was illegally suppressed, and Fred Thomas was illegally confirmed.
I am now in the process of complaining to the U.S. Congress that the D.C. Government
basically operates as a subsidiary of the local homosexual community, and I would suggest
that the D.C. Council not make their case worse by ever preventing me again from
exercising my freedom of speech.
The reason we have sodomy laws is because of the gay community's well-established
pattern of sexual behavior, consisting in cruising public places such as public restrooms
and public bars, in search of sexual partners. Oftentimes, straight men end up being
harassed and/or assaulted by homosexuals. Furthermore, consenting homosexuals are prone to
conducting their sexual activities, which often involve male prostitution and assorted
criminal acts including illegal drugs, in said public restrooms and parks, thereby
consisting indecent exposure. Public restrooms had to be closed in all D.C. parks
precisely because they constitute a hotbed of undesirable homosexual activity. Finally, we
have sodomy laws because of the gay community's incontrovertible propensity for seducing
and raping youth, both children and adolescents.
In short, society-at-large punishes sodomy because, by and large, it is harmful to
society and has no socially redeeming value whatsoever.
Furthermore, homosexuals are the only people in the world who believe that the Federal
Government in general and George Bush in particular are the cause of AIDS. Everybody else
knows fully well that sodomy is the only cause of AIDS as well as hepatitis and a host of
other sexually transmitted diseases. I just don't see how the gay community can demand
that their lethal sexual practice be legalized and at the same time demand that the
non-sodomite public spend billions of dollars in AIDS programs. It is time for the U.S.
Congress to discontinue federal AIDS programs in those states which have legalized sodomy.
Finally, it is clear that the personal lifestyles of the overwhelming majority of D.C.
Councilmembers nullifies their ability to render an unbiased decision on sodomy repeal.
Since most members of the D.C. Council qualify for recusing themselves from voting on this
matter, the Council should simply forego taking any vote on sodomy repeal, thereby laying
this matter to rest for good.
In conclusion, it is time for the gay community to realize that the tables have been
turned. We the straight citizens can and will target those councilmembers who fail to
respond to the concerns of the moral majority.
