They Said What??? — President Obama, The Dali Lama, Sarah Silverman, & Stupid Politicians

TENNESSEE REPUBLICAN STATE REPRESENTATIVE JEREMY FAISON

“We can’t continue to legislate everything. We’ve had some horrible things happen in America and in our state, and there’s children that have actually committed suicide, but I will submit to you today that they did not commit suicide because of somebody bullying them. They committed suicide because they were not instilled the proper principles of where their self-esteem came from at home.”

HOUSE SMALL BUSINESS COMMITTEE CHAIRMAN SCHARNHORST

(co-sponsoring Missouri’s legislation claims “Don’t Say Gay” is necessary):  “There is no need to talk about Billy wanting to marry a goat.”

CLEVELAND DJ DOMINIC DIETER

(to a listener who’s daughter is a lesbian):  “You should get one of your friends to screw your daughter straight.”

UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA ASSISTANT FOOTBALL COACH RON BROWN

“The question I have for you all is, like Pontius Pilate, what are you going to do with Jesus?  Ultimately, if you don’t have a relationship with him and you don’t really have a Bible-believing mentality, really, anything goes.  To be fired for my faith would be a greater honor than to be fired because we didn’t win enough games. I haven’t lost any sleep over it. I realize at some point, we live in a politically correct enough culture where that very well could happen.”

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA

“Ending ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ has been the dog that didn’t bark.  You haven’t read a single story about problems in our military as a consequence of the ending of the policy. So whether it’s on that, or changing the AIDS travel ban, or hospital visitation rights, or a whole slew of regulations that have made sure that federal workers are treated fairly in the workplace, we’ve shown the commitment that I have to these issues. And we’re going to keep on working in very practical ways to make sure that our gay and lesbian brothers and sisters are treated as what they are — full-fledged members of the American family.”

OAKLAND A’S PITCHER BRANDON McCARTHY

(about the “Kiss Cam,” which often shows two men to spark laughter at the games):  “They put two guys on the ‘Kiss Cam’ tonight. What hilarity!! (by hilarity I mean offensive homophobia). Enough with this stupid trend.”

THE DALAI LAMA

“Really.  As a human being. Not as a president of America. Sometimes his policy may not be very, very successful. But as a person, as a human being, very nice person. I love him.” After he sort of start the Iraq sort of crisis then my other occasion meeting with him, then I expressed to him, ‘I love you, but your policies concerned, I have some reservations’ I told him.”

“CAPTAIN AMERICA” ACTOR CHRIS EVANS

(whose brother is gay to “Playboy” magazine):  “Are you kidding me? It’s insane that civil rights are being denied people in this day and age. It’s embarrassing, and it’s heartbreaking. It goes without saying that I’m completely in support of gay marriage. In 10 years we’ll be ashamed that this was an issue.”

COMEDIAN/ACTRESS SARAH SILVERMAN
“Gay marriage is something that Newark Mayor Cory Booker said it best: Some things are not meant to be a vote. Some things are a right. And if things like that were left for a vote, he said, I wouldn’t be where I am today — meaning anything that is civil rights,” Silverman tells THR. “Because people don’t always know what’s best. Their fears keep them from being open and being fair. And so that would just be not up for a vote. Gay marriage, legal, with a big fucking apology for the past few years.”
MITT ROMNEY
(in 1994):  “I believe that the Boy Scouts of America does a wonderful service for this country.  I support the right of the Boy Scouts of America to decide what it wants to do on that issue. I feel that all people should be able to participate in the Boy Scouts regardless of their sexual orientation.”
AMIDHAN, INDONESIA ULEMA COUNCIL LEADER
“I call on Lady Gaga to respect our cultural and traditional values. Most people here are Muslims and we cannot tolerate her revealing outfits and sexy performances.  It’s better for Lady Gaga to cancel her show in this country if she has no willingness to respect our demand. Please do not destroy our nation’s morality and ruin our dignity.”
