Quote# 59860

[Senator Schultheis explains his vote against testing pregnant women for HIV]

"What I'm hoping is that, yes, that person may have AIDS, have it seriously as a baby and when they grow up, but the mother will begin to feel guilt as a result of that," he said. "The family will see the negative consequences of that promiscuity and it may make a number of people over the coming years begin to realize that there are negative consequences and maybe they should adjust their behavior."

"I want women to stay in the dark whether or not they have a horrible disease so that when they have a baby and the baby has AIDS, they'll feel bad about giving a baby AIDS" douchebag

That's disgusting.

I'm ashamed to come from the same country--no, wait, planet as this guy!

What a truly evil fuck.

Tell me, just what is your role in public service?

Can we vote this douchenozzle out of the human race, please?

Oy Vey!

Time to boot you out of office.

2/28/2009 1:18:14 AM


Wait, is he saying that only the bad people catch serious diseases?

Senator, there's this play called "Anatomy of Grey". I think you should see it.

The Lazy One

This piece of shit is a disgusting excuse for a human being and needs to get the fuck off my planet and stop breathing the same air as me. What a fucking douchebag.

I can't believe the guy had the balls to say this in public. This is the single most horrifying thing I've ever heard.

This just proves that some people belong in a monkey cage, and maybe, some day, their descendants will evolve sufficiently to be let out.

It appalls me that there were enough idiots in one place to elect this douchebag. When I was young, I was brutalized and picked on to the point that I fantasized a brutal revenge on my tormentors. I wanted to strip them naked, and drag them down a beach until all the skin was abraded off, then throw them into the ocean. This torture strikes me as too good for the likes of Senator David Scheisskopf.

The consequences of religious brain rot.

I am not an American but feel as ashamed and appalled that such an evil, small minded, brain addled, little shit can be elected to a public office anywhere.

you have got to be fucking kidding me...what a fuckstick. Please die now.

2/28/2009 2:53:14 AM



But seriously, this has to be one of the most evil people quoted here. And that is fucking saying a lot!

I'm not sure what this incoherence means, but running on the assumption that it means "more HIV-infected babies will make America more moral" ... get impeached, seriously. Do you have any fucking clue what you're talking about, Senator? How in all hell can people promote disease like this??? How the fuck did this ... aaargggh.
"AIDS improves morality", yeah, if you believe that, go visit Swaziland (highest AIDS rate on Earth). And try to run for election THERE rather than in a nice place like Colorado.

@Pule Thamex: "Psychotic lack of empathy appears to be a fundamentalist trait." I'd argue that lack of empathy in some way or another (whether it's callousness to suffering, or just the inability to consider other points of view) is the main factor that makes someone what we'd consider fundie, not just strongly believing or opinionated. Whether it's Islam, Christianity, atheism, capitalism (Ayn Rand, anyone?), environmentalism ... even good causes can be corrupted easily into extremism, without empathy.

a mind far far away

And if the mother wasn't promiscuous, but was raped? Or the mother wasn't promiscuous, but the husband was? You really haven't thought this through, and you're an elected official. Remind me to never live in Colorado. If one of their senators is this fucking stupid, just think how idiotic the people are who elected him.

2/28/2009 5:05:12 AM



I'm starting to wonder if fundamentalists regard love as a heresy...At least, any love other than the "devouring" love embodied by Screwtape.

I suppose the new question is, did they lose empathy without realizing it, and so mistake something else for empathy, or did they consciously and willingly abjure it, naming it impure?

2/28/2009 6:00:14 AM


Punishing future generations for mistakes their parents made, it's so Christian, The LORD would be so proud of him right now (you know, if he really is the dick portrayed in the bible).

2/28/2009 6:55:57 AM


Colorado Senator David Schultheis wants negative consequences for promiscuity so that there are negative consequences for promiscuity.

Get it?

To be fair, there's little empathy present in the Bible (and less in the Koran). Damning to eternal torment is more the order of the day. OK, so Jesus sometimes showed empathy (although less than you might expect if you actually take the time to read the Gospels) but Paul, beloved of fundies, was a self-righteous bigot of the worst order.

2/28/2009 7:04:12 AM


And Jesus Wept.

2/28/2009 8:18:51 AM


And that's worth ruining one child's life forever?


2/28/2009 8:22:30 AM


That's the craziest fucking thing about the whole Fundie appeal to consequences. They'll often tell you something you want to do is bad because traditionally it has negative consequences, modern science finds a way to avert those consequences, and rather than celebrating that something bad has, by their own definition, been made good by removing its negative effects, they inexplicably hold that the now consequenceless action is still inherently bad somehow and actually try to put the consequences back again.
