Alarming Religious Right quotes
Many people think the Religious Right is a collection of harmless
kooks. Unfortuately, they are broadcasting their messages of hatred
worldwide. Here's some examples:
"Robert Black, the [Texas] state [Republican] party spokesman, called
them [Log Cabin] a 'hate group' and compared them to the Ku Klux
Klan." [This occurred after Log cabin Republicans (a gay republican
group) tried to attend the Texas Republican State convention.] - NY
Daily News 6/24/98
"many of those people involved in Adolf Hitler were Satanists, many
of them were homosexuals, the two things seem to go together, it is a
pathology it is a sickness." - Pat Robertson
“...What kind of craziness is it in our society which will put a
cloak of secrecy around a group of people whose lifestyle is at best
abominable. Homosexuality is an abomination. The practices of those
people is appalling. It is a pathology. It is a sickness, and instead of
thinking of giving these people a preferred status and privacy, we
should treat AIDS exactly the same way as any other communicable
disease...” - 700 Club, 6-6-88
"[Homosexuals]want to come into churches and disrupt church services
and throw blood all around and try to give people AIDS and spit in the
face of ministers." Pat Robertson, 700 Club, 1/18/95
"...the acceptance of homosexuality is the last step in the decline
of Gentile civilization." --Pat Robertson, of the Christian
Broadcasting Network, warned that hurricanes could hit Orlando, Fla.,

“If the world accepts homosexuality as its norm and if it moves the
entire world in that regard, the whole world is then going to be
sitting like Sodom and Gomorrah before a Holy God. And when the wrath
of God comes on this earth, we will all be guilty and we will all
suffer for it.” - 700 Club, 9-6-95
“You know, one of the great misnomers in our society is the term
`gay.’ That somebody who is involved in something that is leading to
suicide, where the V.D. rate is 11 times that of others, which are
almost driven and ashamed and fearful and confused and psychotic and
all the others that we read about plaguing this part of our society.
The term gay is the most serious misuse of the English language.
They’re not gay, they’re very, very depressed and miserable.” - 700
`We’re not only going to go into the schools and we’re going to take
your children and your grandchildren and turn them into homosexuals.’
Now that’s wrong.” - 700 Club
"Satan uses homosexuals as pawns. They're in, as you know, key
positions in the media, they're in the White House, they're in
everything, they're in Hollywood now. Then, unfortunately, after he
uses them, he infects them with AIDS and then they die." Anthony
Falzarano, PFOX, Janet Parshall's America, 2/27/96
"You know, the gays are in control in Hollywood; they are in control
of television; they are in key positions at the Washington Post now;
and they watch everything that is coming into the newspaper or
television and radio, and they are editing it out." - Anthony Falzarano
"At the 1985 Conservative Political Action Conference, Cameron
announced to the attendees, 'Unless we get medically lucky, in three or
four years, one of the options discussed will be the extermination of
homosexuals.' According to an interview with former Surgeon General C.
Everett Koop, Cameron was recommending the extermination option as
early as 1983." - Mark E. Pietrzyk, News-Telegraph, March 10, 1995.
"At least twice Cameron has advocated the tattooing of AIDS patients
on the face, so that people would know when they were meeting with an
infected person. The penalty for trying to hide the tattoo would be
banishment to the Hawaiian island of Molokai, a former leper colony. In
the event that a vaccine were developed to prevent AIDS, Cameron has
proposed that homosexuals be castrated to prevent them from 'cheating'
on nature." - Mark E. Pietrzyk, News-Telegraph, March 10, 1995
"Cameron also views AIDS as being such a large threat to 'innocents'
that he has proposed nationwide testing for HIV and the forcible
quarantine of all those testing positive, either by confinement to their
homes or in regional detention centers." - Mark E. Pietrzyk,
News-Telegraph, March 10, 1995.
"gays who practice oral sex verge on consuming raw human blood"- Paul Cameron
"Thomas Jefferson said that homosexuality ‘should be punished, if a
man, by castration, if a woman, by cutting through the cartilage of her

MEDICAL CONSEQUENCES Of WHAT HOMOSEXUALS DO.
American Family Association of Kentucky's Dr. Frank Simon: "There are
hundreds of children in America who are dying of AIDS because they

Association, has suggested that homosexuality be discouraged by
photographing patrons entering Gay bars and posting these photos in
public places such as the post office." - Mark E. Pietrzyk,
News-Telegraph, March 10, 1995.
"When Will Perkins, chairman of Colorado for Family Values, was asked
whether he supported [Paul] Cameron's call for quarantine of AIDS
victims, he replied, 'It's a very complex question, but it has puzzled
me that AIDS has not been handled the same way as any other deadly
disease in an epidemic form.' Kevin Tebedo, a co-founder of Colorado for
Family Values, has not been so shy, having been quoted as favoring
tattooing and quarantine of those who test HIV positive." - Mark E.
Pietrzyk, News-Telegraph, March 10, 1995.
