Turning on, turning off
Gary Bauer is worried about upsetting some of the stupider members of his party:
Conservative Christians and gay rights groups also weighed in on the way Mr. Kerry brought up Mr. Cheney’s daughter Mary in response to a question about whether homosexuality is a matter of choice.
“I think it is part of a strategy to suppress traditional-values voters, to knock 1 or 2 percent off in some rural areas by causing people to turn on the president,” said Gary Bauer, a conservative Christian who ran for president four years ago.
Is being a lesbian a choice? (Rush thinks so.)
Now, who knows? The answer to this question is what the president said, “Who knows?” Science cannot answer this question definitively, and we do know… I mean look, I’m going to step in it, but I can’t help it. I step in it every day here. We do know, we do know that there are middle-age and older women who choose to live with and love other women after having been married, that they have chosen. We do know that there are women who have chosen this lifestyle. It’s not a matter of dispute. Now, that’s not to say that they weren’t born that way or were living a lie, but there are women who have chosen it later on. The point is the science doesn’t know. There’s no evidence whatsoever. The best evidence that you can get is anecdotal and that’s from people who are gay who say, “No, I didn’t chose it.” Some say, “I didn’t. Why would I?” But they still say they didn’t choose it. So you can rely on that, but in terms of there being a scientific answer to the question. There is not.
So here is a simple test you can do at home.
Let’s say you’re a woman (Ann Coulter is now nodding her head thinking, “Okay. I can pretend.”) and you have a choice between:
and a woman
and a woman
and a woman.
For once it looks like Rush is right.
