Quote# 59817

February 24, 2009, New York, NY – The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) today urged media to turn a spotlight on anti-gay remarks made by Colorado State Senator Scott Renfroe on February 23, 2009, during a Senate debate over a bill that would allow gay and lesbian state employees to share health benefits with their partners.

According to The Denver Post, Renfroe stated that "homosexuality is seen as a violation of this natural creative order, and it is an offense to God." He continued ". . . When we create laws that go against what biblically we are supposed to stand for, I think we are allowing to go forward a sin that should not be treated by government as something that is legal. We are taking sins and making them legally OK."

Yet another person who has no business being a State Senator. Take your religion out of my law books.

It is now illegal to wear polycotton blends.

Just say it, you don't want gays to have rights because you're a homophobic douche. Stop using god's word for your own protection.

["We are taking sins and making them legally OK."]

Our laws aren't derived from the Bible, Scott.

*Ashamed to live in Colorado* That is all. Oh, and fuck you Scott Renfroe

Cox & Dicks

Hi Cox here, Dicks is still where I left him over an hour ago, in bed. Though, I just popped my head round the bedroom door to call him and you'd swear he was in a tent not a bed. In the meantime, I'll prepare today's biblical quotation on behalf of Gays4God, and here it is:-


16 Of Ozni, the family of the Oznites: of Eri, the family of the Erites:
17 Of Arod, the family of the Arodites: of Areli, the family of the Arelites.
18 These are the families of the children of Gad according to those that were numbered of them, forty thousand and five hundred.
19 The sons of Judah were Er and Onan: and Er and Onan died in the land of Canaan.
20 And the sons of Judah after their families were; of Shelah, the family of the Shelanites: of Pharez, the family of the Pharzites: of Zerah, the family of the Zarhites.

Ah Men (and Women)

There you go, something for us all to ponder while I go and try to get Dicks up again.

Love, Cox

We are taking sins and making them legally OK.

Of course, Scottie here doesn't care if some people don't subscribe to his (narrow and bigoted) moral code, just like any good Christofascist.

2/27/2009 2:47:47 PM


Sharia law!

...wait, what am I thinking. Fundie Christians are for democracy, right?

No. Sharia law!

2/27/2009 2:50:12 PM


Not everyone is Christian, moron. Why does everyone else have to suffer because of your deluded beliefs?

Doctor Whom

We are indeed taking sins and making them legally OK. Why, just last week, I walked into a department store where they were openly and brazenly selling gold and pearl jewelry for women.

(I wonder how many "Bible believers" would even get the reference.)

2/27/2009 2:55:21 PM


What are you going to do if someone else's religion says it's the most holy thing you can do?

2/27/2009 3:01:53 PM

@Thammuz: Yeah, depressing, isn't it?

2/27/2009 3:09:10 PM

Mighty Toilet

you Americans have people like this in office? I feel sorry for you :(

2/27/2009 3:43:58 PM



Tell them tough titties, of course. Freedom of Religion only applies to TRUE religions, so as such, it means that everyone's free to become a good Christian.

Ugh, I feel sick even saying that sarcastically.

@ Scott Renfroe:

Totalitarians for Jesus.

1. I don't give a fat fuck what "offends" your god. There's no evidence that he even exists, and if he did he killed millions of innocent people for no reason in the OT. The ignorance and bigotry displayed by you and the OT writers "offend" me more than you can possibly imagine.
2. "Sin" is a man-made concept, created and used as a form of mind control for numerous reasons. From a psychological and sociological perspective this is a very interesting topic but it's too long to go into here, so I'll just say that SIN IS BULLSHIT and leave it at that.
3. What consenting adults do in their own bedrooms is NONE OF YOUR GODDAM BUSINESS nor that of the state. If it doesn't hurt anyone, it's no one else's business! MIND YOUR OWN GODDAM BUSINESS. Also, if you want to live in a fundy police state, move to Iran. I think you should move there - NOW.
(Sorry for yelling.)

@ CatAnon:

"This is why I want to go to England."

England has a very good chance of being under Sharia Law in 25 years unless the people there grow some balls and do something about their home-grown Islamist wackos who are dedicated to implementing Sharia Law there. The fundies in England are more dangerous, psychotic, and violent than ours. Watch Pat Condell's commentaries if you think England is such a great place these days. Also, they have the same economic problems that we have.

@ Dr. Funkenstein:

I do not believe 9/11 was "done by the Jews." Neither does anyone with an IQ over 50. So fuck off to Stormfront, anti-Semitic troll.

2/27/2009 4:11:14 PM


I'm in CO and my sister and her boyfriend lobbied against this fuck and actually shook his hand.

2/27/2009 4:20:29 PM


Alright lets bring in Biblical law

Walmart must be burned down for selling mixed fabrics

Cheeseburgers must be banned.

No working on the sabbath, of course this includes the police so there will be nobody to enforce the laws until afterwards.

What day is the sabbath again?

I believe the law goes as far as to say you are not allowed to carry anything through your doorway or to light a cooking fire. Not sure about the pilot light on furnaces though, maybe we should shut those off, just in case.

If you have a child, you must break the neck of an ass.

How the fuck do these idiots keep getting elected.

Colorado has some fucked up politicians. Last year, another State Senator said that all undocumented workers were "illiterate peasants"

2/27/2009 8:31:29 PM

Chi, gaystapo member

What did you expect? It's Colorado.
It's also why I want to move to Canada or Australia.

"When we create laws that go against what biblically we are supposed to stand for, I think we are allowing to go forward a sin that should not be treated by government as something that is legal. We are taking sins and making them legally OK."

Remember this the next time a Christian asks "What did we ever do to you that you feel the need to complain about us?"

2/27/2009 9:00:44 PM


"Natural creative order"? What in the goddamn hell is that supposed to mean?

Aside from that sentence (which is a huge WTF), the rest is pretty damn stupid and headdesk-y.

2/27/2009 9:05:42 PM

Old Viking

Funny how so many politicians who hammer on "sin" eventually get caught with their fingers in the cookie jar (or some other place they shouldn't be).

I hope someone bitch slapped Mr. Renfroe right after he uttered that bullshit. And called him gay.

2/27/2009 10:18:58 PM


Hey guys! Remember he doesnt hate gays! he's just being a GOOD CHRISTIAN and you should stop persecuting us by not sllowing us to treat gays like shit as long as we wrap it in biblical terms!

2/28/2009 12:37:05 AM


Prove that God exists, douchebag, THEN we'll talk about giving God's opinion any weight whatsoever in public policy.
