Homophobes pin hopes on acupuncture and cows

So, if acupuncture can “cure you of being gay,” can it also cure you of the right-wing madness sometimes associated with delusionary, superstitious religious belief systems?

Yes, of course I am being facetious.

An article on the Gay Star News site reports on one homeopath’s claim that “homosexuality can be cured by using acupuncture or other forms of ‘treatment’.”

Yes, the guy is a fundamentalist who puts his faith in some supernatural entity that never, ever actually speaks for itself.

But if his traditional treatments can really change one’s sexuality, think of what it could do for all the religious nut jobs out there . . .

OK, I’ve wasted enough space on this guy.

But it just never ceases to amaze me what some homophobic fundamentalists will come up with.

In another report today, on the Time site, an Australian politician has claimed that same-sex marriage in his country “would be bad for beef exports.”

No, I’m not making this up.

Agriculture Minister Barnaby Joyce  told an interviewer that Southeast Asian countries that import Australia’s beef would see the country as “decadent” if it legalizes same-sex marriage.  But he didn’t actually say they would stop buying Australia’s beef, from what I can tell … He just seems to have implied it, according to Time.

Sigh . . .

  1. Regarding acupuncture “curing” homosexuality – I feel there is a crass joke in there about “small pricks.” Where do people come up with this stuff?
    Maybe they’ll include acupuncture at ‘Pray the Gay Away Camp?’
