Todd Akin Claims Breastmilk Cures Homosexuality

Aug 26, 2012

Missouri U.S. senate candidate Todd Akin has stoked more outrage today by claiming that male homosexuality is a disease and that the medical establishment has found the cure.

The Republican congressman, already under fire for his controversial comments regarding rape, told a reporter for Cape Giradeau's KBSI 23 News that "female breastmilk - when fed directly to an adult homosexual male daily for at least four weeks - has a 94% chance of permanently curing homosexual perversions."

"Lesbians can be cured by drinking something else."

Akin made the scientifically dubious statement during an interview that was supposed to mark the "rebirth" of his campaign to defeat incumbant U.S. senator Claire McCaskill.

Akin was leading in the polls until August 19th when he told a local radio host that victims of "legitimate rape" could not become pregnant because "the female body has ways of shutting that whole thing down." In the wake of the ensuing controversey his 11 point lead in the polls has turned into a 10 point deficit, and obeservers have written off his chances at winning the seat.

No Means No

Facing certain defeat, all major figures in the Republican Party have called for Akin to stand aside and allow another candidate to run. The Republican Senatorial Campaign Committee and several important outside groups have also pulled funding for his bid.

Despite the heavy pressure, Akin has refused to step aside saying he is in the race to win.

In the interview Akin explained that he will never back down from his beliefs and he is excited to bring his unique brand of conservatism to the U.S. Senate.

Ducking questions about his viability he proceeded to educate reporter Jeff Raskin on several issues very close to his heart including the global conspiracy to falsify the fossil record in the name of "radical Darwinism", and the plot to turn Michigan into the capital of a new Islamic States of America.

Spray the Gay Away

But the congressman really hit his stride when discussing homosexuality.

"This may surprise you Jeff, but I don't think homosexuality is a choice. We evangelicals, we know that it's a disease. But the good news is - we have the cure."

Akin then explained, "The National Institutes of Health has treated hundreds of young men through clinical trials at their headquarters in Maryland. They don't want the public to know because the secular liberal elites have succeeded in brainwashing the public into believing that homosexuality is a positive thing."

"We now know how to purge men of sin and put them on a path towards god. Why can't every gay man in America have that knowledge? Just 4 weeks of live breastfeeding can cure them of their terrible suffering. Why aren't we talking about this?"

Somewhat dumbfounded by the brazenness of Akin's pronouncement, the reporter then asked if this supposed treatment only worked on men.

"Lesbians can be cured by drinking something else," Akin replied "I'll leave that one to your imagination."

Claire McCaskill has issued a statement denouncing Akin's latest gaffe as "an outrageous and offensive pseudoscientific slander" and called on national Republicans to "respect the choice of Missourians" and allow Akin to continue his campaign.

    OK if, and I mean really, if this guy is this far out how has it effected his judgement doing his job up until now? Doesn’t Congress have some sort of test to weed out imbeciles that are dangerous to America? We need to choose a grade school and find replacements for the republicans in Congress. Seriously, this guy does not belong in Congress. Those that share his ideas don’t either.

  • lil mama

    Its amazing this “man” got this far in life. He’s definately living in his own world. No offence but you must be pretty twisted to think being gay is a disease. And even more twisted to believe drinking breast milk…is a cure.

    Wouldn’t put it past Akin to say something so outrageous, but how come no one else has reported this? Can you provide a link to the original interview? If it was on KBSI, there has to be a video. And I really want to see this video.

  • Guest

    Can you provide a link to this video?

  • jd20

    Yes. You actually can make things like this up. For instance, there is absolutely no record anywhere of this interview actually occurring. The KBSI Website does not have a record of the interview and not one other media source listed it. I thought it could be real at first, but this story is a straight up lie.

  • jd20

    There also is no reporter named Jeff raskin at KBSI

  • Cean

    This can’t be real. I hope years from now we’ll find out this was all a publicity stunt.

  • Sam

    Umm its sad that so many don’t realize…this is SATIRE….although breastmilk has been used to try and “cure” homosexuals before…Bachmanns husband has even mentioned it before…

    Satire but useful for voters, despite what you suckers say. It is EQUAL to his other staements that make this satire satire. You see, you need to start with a fact. The fact is Akin thinks rape is self curing. FACT WORTH BASING YOUR VOTE ON !! The satire is in making up a satirical story to point out the root of satire, which is —— FACT. You republicans need to go to real school. Ech comment pointing out “satire” with derision is in fact it’s own mini satire on how plainly stupid you all are. Thanks for outing yourselves! LMFAO You guys are hilarious!

    It’s not a real news story–it’s satire. But probably.

    You should probably ask the author, since this was made up. It’s satire.

  • Suzie

    Neither. It’s an Onion-like satirical “news” site.

  • Suzie

    Agreed, but this story is satirical. It’s not true.

  • Suzie

    Did the word “satire” in the corner of the page give that away? Of course it is–that’s the point.

  • Suzie

    Add yourself to that list, because this is a satirical “news” site. It’s not real.

    I agree, but this story/site is satirical news. It’s not actually real.

    No, it’s satire.

    This is a satirical site. Who’s believing the BS? Though I agree, the dude’s a nutjob.

    “Lesbians can be cured by drinking something else,” Akin replied “I’ll leave that one to your imagination.” I can’t wait until Rachel Maddow get’s hold of THAT whopper! He’s even dumber than we thought.

  • anonymouslyincredulous

    Okay. The jokes on me; but it is easy to assume he could say this; because he is outrageous. Furthermore, nowhere on the mobile version does this article claim to be satire. Maybe, I’m naive; but I am not so pretentious and condescending as to denigrate others for falling for a joke when there is no indication that it is one, and to assume I would not be an informed voter. Why the hostility?

  • Suzie

    That’s because it’s a satirical “news” site. Like the Onion. Like it says in the corner of the page.

  • Suzie

    No, because it’s satire. Not real.

  • Sean

    I suppose ‘legitimate rape’ would be forcing your penis down a lesbian’s throat and ejaculating, thus leading her away from the path of sin.

    In reality this is what Akin is saying. “Women’s world is her husband, her family,her children and her home. We do not find it right when she presses into the world of men”, -Adolf Hitler. If want to see the real plans for America by the right wing Republicans. Google the “Business Plot”.

    I urge you to retract any and all statements regarding the most recent controversy on rape, and now I hear you say that breast milk will stop homosexuality.
    It is apparent that your knowledge of these issues is lacking any sort of intellect, common sense, or medical proof.
    All you are doing is playing into the liberal theater, and if you have ANY respect for your party you will bow out of any further gibberish, and issue an apology for your careless statements.
    Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.

The reason I fell for it is because this maniac with apparent foot-in-mouth disease, would possibly believe this stuff. His faux pas so far lead me to believe there will be more. So when I read this article, I thought this was “more.” God please deliver us from Republicans, all of them.

    So did I, what’s all the hoo-hah? It IS, Todd Akin…I think that he’s the only honest Republican out there. At least he SAYS what he THINKS, and that’s more than you can say about Mitt Paul Ryan Romney or any of the rest of them.

  • jvaljon1

    Yeah I remember that, Sam! Bachmann’s husband always is trying for the cure of being gay. Still, she has to call him whenever she’s a half hour from home, so that he can stop trying, and “prepare” (ie, get dressed and kick the young guys out) for her arrival!

  • jvaljon1

    Yeah, well, Akin DID say, when asked by the reporter: “I don’t know if this works on lesbians! They’d probably have to drink SOMETHING ELSE, I leave that to your imagination.”

    My mother breastfed me when I was young, and I’m still gay as a two dollar bill. It’s quite sad that there are still people in what many regard as “the greatest country in the world” that don’t understand that homosexuality is as natural a sexual orientation as heterosexuality.

    Yes let’s laugh at the people who have legitimate reason to be outraged by statements like this. Not like they’ve ever experienced this in real life before, outside of the context of satire!

    It’s satire, but it’s not any more unbelievable than “legitimate rape,” and that one actually came from the horse’s mouth.

    Men being cured of homosexuality by breast milk is not something this site just made up. People actually believe it’s possible. And if it’s not breast milk, it’s deep psychological intervention, or some other perversion of “science.”

    And lesbians, hey. They can just be cured by cock. Because every woman really just wants dick, no matter what they say.

    I apologize, as I’m not trying to pick on you specifically. But I think the bullshit comments here are getting more outrageous than the article itself.

    Let’s see, Hitler was raised by strict parents, and attended art school. He saw Socialism as a Jewish conspiracy, and became a Nationalist. His party advocated that equal rights were only to be given to German citizens – “foreigners” and “aliens” would be denied these rights. In 1923 he led a failed attempt to overthrow the elected government. After the US crash in 1929, Germany’s declining economy made his positions more popular, though politically his party’s extremism made it difficult to pass legislation. Frustrated by his lack of success, Hitler in one speech called for the end of democracy a system which he described as being the “rule of stupidity, of mediocrity, of half-heartedness, of cowardice, of weakness, and of inadequacy.” After the 1932 elections, when his party held a plurailty of seats in Parliament, Hitler was elected Chancellor.

    There are indeed some idiotic Democrats. (Lyndon LaRouche tried running for president as a Democrat.) Thing is, Akin’s viewpoint is a mainstream viewpoint within the Republican Party (see Palin, Huckabee, Limbaugh, Coulter, etc.), whereas LaRouche and his ilk aren’t taken even remotely seriously by Democratic voters. You don’t seriously think someone like Joe Biden is comparable to Akin, do you?

  • Trudy

    If you’re asking if I’m comparing apples to apples – no. But Pelosi and Biden have far to many gaffes to discount them from the idiot category.

  • Trudy

    Akin’s comment is completely idiotic….far from any mainstream viewpoint within the republican party. That is why they’ve called him to step down. Now if you said that some republicans do not believe in abortion…I would agree. BUT…Some democrats don’t believe in abortion.

  • Caris

    I am very conservative and a registered Republican. Akin is a fluke and needs to be run “out of town”. What an idiot!!!

And that child did not chose what happened – or will happen. It isn’t about the woman, or the rapist. Ultimately, the innocent one is the baby. No…. no shut down took place. Akin is an idiot.

  • Casey

    I haven’t heard Biden say something on the level of breast milk curing male homosexuality. I have heard republicans say such things. I have also heard republicans say things like “childrens do learn” a republican who couldn’t pronounce nuclear, republicans who think you can see Russia from Alaska. Should I continue? I have also listened to republicans time and time again say that this country was founded on Christian beliefs. Which is completely wrong and if they would like to represent this country should at least take the time to learn it’s history. These are also the same people who proudly claim to be God fearing Christians. That in itself is enough to provoke me to call them idiots.

    More people need to be responsible when it comes to propagating the human species. Contraception is fundamental to this. Without it there will be hundreds if not thousands of unwanted children who will be given up because their parents can not afford them. This is what Republicans will do for America. They care about the child so long as it’s in the womb but once the baby is born then they are like now it’s your problem. Republicans want to abolish medicare, medicade, social security, planned parenthood, welfare, food stamps and so on cause they feel it burdens the middle class. That is a load of HORSESHIT!!! These programs help the disabled workers of this country who paid into these programs when they were working and also for the eldery who also paid into the programs when they worked. These programs YOU paid for for YOURSELF so YOU can retire at age 65. If these programs do not exist then you work till you no longer can and I hope you like Dog and cat food cause that is what you will be eating in your golden years IF you live that long. :/

    @ Trudy, yes he has made mistakes. No argument there. I still stand strong on there are very few republicans that I can even remotely even consider giving my vote. Maybe when I see one who doesn’t see anyone who doesn’t think exactly like they do as a threat I might possibly consider it. As it stands now, anyone who is willing to vote for Romney should be forced to join the military. When I say the military I mean the Marine Corps or the Army. Simply because we (Yes I say we because I am a Marine) will be the ones sent to yet another foreign country to make sure his pockets continue to get lined. Anyone who actually thinks that another businessman as President is a good idea, should be slapped twice daily for being an idiot. Both Bushs are a perfect example. Deep ties in the oil industry and we end up in the heart of the middle east, the area of the world controlling the majority of the oil on the market. The fact that Romney refuses to disclose his tax returns should tell everyone something. He doesn’t want anyone to know where his money is invested. Sorry, but if Obama has to produce his birth certificate, Romney should have to produce his tax records.

    I am tired of my brothers giving their life to make sure the rich stay rich, I am tired of seeing my brothers being disabled for life, dealing with emotional and mental issues to make sure that the ultra rich can continue to ride the backs of the middle class working Americans. Have you got sons of age to join the military or soon to be of age? Would you want them joining the military with Romney as president, who by the way was quoted as saying that this country, Obama specifically, should not have spent the money to continue searching for and kill Bin Laden. In the same breath said that at this point we have no reason to leave Afghanistan. So we shouldn’t have went after Bin Laden but we should not leave Afghanistan.

    It’s ok though. I understand. With half of today’s society happy on their knees being told what to think and what they should believe why should I expect any different?

  • MakBeth

    Please explain to me, then, how someone who is gay can possibly be a republican, when the party itself is so horrifically homophobic! Seems self-defeating, to me. And as a lesbian, it feels like youʻre the crab who pulls the potential escapees back down into the bucket where they will die.

    True … Iʻm a democrat, a lesbian, and a Mom … and I do not believe in abortion.

  • ApeMan

    What I want to know is where are they going to recruit fine Christian women for the “live breastfeeding” program to eradicate male homosexuality?

    Recruiting fine Christian men to contribute to the campaign to eliminate lesbianism by “drinking something else” should have no problem and even a waiting list.

  • Trudy

    Okay…here goes. As a person who strongly respects each and every person who voluntarily signs up for the military, I will only say if you don’t want to risk fighting for your country then you shouldn’t sign up….regardless of the circumstances.

    As far as having a business man as President….the key word would be “successful” business man. Why does Romney not want to make his money and tax returns the focus? Because its not the focus. He has never hidden the fact that he is a successful business man. And if you have a problem with what he paid on his tax returns than let’s fight to reform taxes…..a fair tax act would be a great idea! All Romney did was pay exactly what he was suppose to under the law.

    Also, let’s engage heavily in political stereotyping, since every person alive who identifies themselves as small-government and pro-business (Republican) obviously believes this newfangled super-science that Akin is preaching. Very accurate way to get your point across and make people want to listen to what you have to say.

  • Suga-T

    That is sheer nonsense. How is it that a fetus should have more rights than a woman, who is a walking, talking, breathing on their own, human being? So what it appears you are saying is, a woman could be beaten, strangled, raped and left for dead (which is how most rapes occur), and should consider herself fortunate and blessed if the rapist spills his seed inside of her, making her pregnant? That is preposterous! The rape victim did not choose what happened when they were raped… but they DARNED well should be able to choose what happens to them after.

  • Suga-T

    So who suffers if a rape victim has an abortion? And please don’t say the fetus.

  • Suga-T

    Or if his wife, mother, grandmother, aunts, sisters, daughters or granddaughters were the pregnant rape victim.

  • abunchofgibberish

    Actually, regardless of what your high school history teacher taught you about the founding fathers’ intentions, America was indisputably founded on Christianity. Take some time, think about it, read more about the people who founded the country’s government. We all like to think of America as a place of “religious freedom,” but the fact of the matter is that the country was originally chartered as a place for freedom to practice Protestantism; freedom from the Catholic Church.

    I won’t argue with you that there have been some very ill-informed Republicans in our time, but you should definitely get your facts and perspective straightened out a bit before you get into name-calling. It doesn’t make you any smarter to tell somebody that they’re stupid.

  • Casey

    No this country was not founded on Christianity. Hence the Treaty of Tripoli, might want to look that up. As for my high school teachings, I am going to assume you are from the south. I however was educated in upstate New York where teachers didn’t input their religious beliefs into our classes. Please try to argue with me on that one. I beg you. I currently live in south Louisiana and constantly have to correct what my kids are being taught by teachers here. Maybe you should spend some time reading your history. The majority of our founding fathers were Deists. As for my facts and getting my perspective straight I will instead give you facts, this is the very first line of the Treaty of Tripoli:

    As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion.

    That is pretty clear and straight forward. This Treaty was unanimously approved by the senate after being read aloud and a printed copy given to every member of the senate.

    This country has steadily gone down hill since it’s people have forgotten what a government lead by religion is capable of, you know like the government of England? Why are the people of this country fighting so hard to drag this country back to exactly what our founding fathers fought to escape? I know history repeats itself, but people need to wake up, there is no unexplored continent that we can all flee to and start over again. Well except maybe Antarctica. So please, don’t try to tell me how this country was founded on any form of religion. I have my facts and my perspectives in order, maybe you should put yours in order before you respond again.

  • Casey

    You don’t understand why I feel his tax returns should be produced. I know he gets tax breaks, that is why he wants to extend the Bush tax cuts for the ultra rich.

    I am more concerned with where his investments are, I could care less what he paid in taxes. I want to know he isn’t heavily invested in the oil industry, or in companies in China or Iran. I am more concerned with how his “successful businessman investments” are going to dictate his decisions and course of action in world circumstances when it comes to this country. He does not want to make his tax returns the focus because it would let people know where his interests are financially. How is it wrong to make his tax returns the focus but perfectly acceptable to make Obama’s birth certificate the focus? Anyone who thinks that Obama’s birth records were not fully inspected and confirmed long before he became president has no idea what it takes to even be eligible to run for president.

    As for not signing up for the military for fear of fighting for this country. I have already served for this country. I had no problem fighting for this country. The problem is that fighting in Iraq was not fighting for this country. Fighting in Iraq was fighting to make the oil industry rich. It was fighting to make the investors in Haliburton rich. The ignorance of the people of this country truly amazes me. We go into Iraq because of reports of WMDs, uncomfirmed reports which turned out to be, big surprise here, completely false. Yet we have known for years that China has nuclear capabilities and we have done nothing, we know for a fact that Iran is vigorously working on nuclear capabilities and we do nothing. Do you know why? Because no one would make any money off of a military action against either of those countries. That’s why. I would gladly give my life in defense of this country, to protect our freedoms. However, giving my life to line someone’s pockets is not my idea of defending this country. Unless you have stood shoulder to shoulder with other men and women in a combat zone, I could care less your opinion on our military. As for you respecting each and every person who volunteers to serve, I volunteered. I did my service, I put my time in, I have the scars to prove it. I have seen the results of money hungry politically powerful businessmen. I would go back to a combat zone willingly to prevent another one from being president of this country.

  • BC

    “Grandpa?! Who let you out of the nursing home again?!”

  • Casey

    And yet Romney wants to not only extend them, but give the rich even more tax cuts while raising taxes on the middle class.

  • Trudy

    There is much more to the information you state above….Yes Romney plans to keep the original Bush tax cuts (just as Obama did) but extend tax cuts to ALL Americans across the board. He will also cut corporate tax rates, which he says will stimulate economic growth. Indeed, there’s evidence to suggest that cutting corporate taxes can do that, and the Tax Foundation expert (who supports Romney’s plan) suggests that more jobs would be an acceptable trade-off for a less progressive personal income tax system. You either have a fair tax rate across the board or tax the hell out of the corporations that provide the jobs. Its Econ 101 and common sense!

  • Trudy

    Whaaat?? When did I talk about Universal Healthcare? But since YOU brought it up, it would be a disaster! Yes, our healthcare system as we know it, needs reform but not Obama’s (Pelosi”s) plan! Ask any person in Canada and Europe if they like to wait 90 days (or more) to get the very important diagnostic tests prescribed by their doctor. And those on medicare will have the hardest time finding a doctor that will take their medicare. Besides that….whose paying for it?? Anyone who pays taxes!!!! That includes ALL middle class people like me! Since Obamacare has been enacted, my healthcare premiums have risen 20%! I’ve already being squeezed….

  • Trudy

    You have the facts wrong AGAIN! Where do you get your info, Casey?? The Onion or Daily Currant?? Please! Romney isn’t raising taxes on ANYONE. In fact, he wants to cut taxes across the board – yes that will give the wealthy a tax cut too – so what – why should they pay anymore than anyone else?? Did you also know that he also wants to give corporate america tax cuts…OMG……are you burning up in side??? However, did you stop to think that in doing so, more jobs could be created? This would stimulate economic growth.

  • Casey

    Send me some links. Because I haven’t been able to find not one instance where he wants to cut taxes across any board. NOT ONE. I have found where people making less than $250k pay a far higher percentage in taxes than those making over $250k. Really? corporate american tax cuts. You mean more cuts for big business? No not from a republican. This is text book trickle down economics which has been proven time and time again that it doesn’t work. Did you ever think that if you give bigger tax cuts to the middle class (being that it is the largest economic class in this country) their ability to actually spend money on goods and services will drive this economy and put millions to work. You don’t have to give big business tax cuts if the middle class has the money to actually spend. Because big business will make their money from the middle class spending that money in their stores, buying their services, in turn the higher demand will create more jobs. Tax cuts for the rich does nothing but put money in their pocket that they are going to continue to invest in foreign countries and hiding offshore. Just like Romney. The middle class of this country is what drives it. That has been proven over and over again. If the middle class is broke, the economy is shit. The ultra rich are not slowing their spending right now because they have the money to spend. The middle class is not spending money, that is why there are no jobs and the economy is shit.

    It’s a pity more people don’t study history before making pronouncements about it, You are quite right agout the Treaty of Tripoli. However, saying that the US is a Christian nation is like saying the US is a Male nation. All the signers of the constitution were affiliated with one or another Christian religion, and were all men. Why? Because white christian men had all the power. As for the first amendment, its original purpose was to protect states from the imposition of a federally imposed religion. Only later was it interpreted to prevent the imposition of religion on individuals. So according to the original intent of the founders, states should be completely within their rights to say “All politicians must be congregationalists” or to allow states to tax for the purpose of building and maintaining churches. Massachusetts had a state-supported religion until the mid-1800′s. So did Connecticut. And until the mid-20th century states could (and did) bar athiests from public office. Of course they also barred women and blacks.

  • Casey

    I never said the US was a Christian nation. As for all of the men who signed that treaty being affiliated with one or another Christian religion I don’t believe that. The majority of our founding fathers were Deists. Not Christians of any form. I never stated that religion was not a part of this country. I said it was not founded on Christian beliefs. Far too many people simply sit in church and listen to a man at a pulpit spew revisionist history. Or, they are raised in an area where the teachers teach them revisionist history in school. I spent days fighting with my teenagers because their history teacher was telling them that the Civil War was fought because of slavery. That’s it, no other reason, just slavery. Almost every time I have this discussion by the end of it I find out that the person I am debating with is from one of the Bible belt states. I would never have believed some of the things that people here say if I hadn’t heard it for myself. It is simply amazing how many people here who were raised in “The Church” will simply parrot what their preacher says like it is written in stone and indisputable. I am not saying I am completely right about everything. But the majority of these people honestly believe things that are so out of this world that I can’t believe that they haven’t been locked in a room with padded walls.

    Ah, another wise and intelligent comment by Mr. Akin, not! For those of you who support this idiot, I ask you do you really want a man as blatantly stupid as Akin within the Senate? But don’t think this is comming from a Claire supporter, I will not be voting for either canidate for they are one in the same! Oh no, no, no, you may say, “How can they be the same if one is a Reblubican and one is a Democrip (Thanks Mr. Ventura, for the reference) The answer is they both promise change, that is never delivered upon and will say anything they need to get votes. For example, my impression of Akin that he is taking advantage of those who are religious within the Republican party. Listen to any of his speeches and you will see he makes countless references to his belief in God. Please I ask the religious community ti reconsider there choice to support this man. All those that keep claiming, and insisting that Akin is a “pure” and “Godly man”, that’s great, for you anyway, but put all that aside and hear what this man is saying! Do you REALLY want this man representing the religious community you may belong to? Dump Akin’s dumb ass, take the GOP’s reaction as “divine intervention” in ending this idiot’s campaign! Thank you!

  • Michael Ryland

    “Lesbians can be cured by drinking something else,” Akin replied “I’ll leave that one to your imagination.”

    OK, the first part is just his abject stupidity showing. This quote exposes the pig he truly is. He talks about turning someone to the path of God and then makes a comment like this? There is just nothing more to say about this sub-human pile of excrement.

    Hmm casey, don’t like borrowing from China, and don’t like tax revenue from taxpayers, so, how do we pay for the $3 trillion we spent in Iraq, and the $1.5 trillion poured into Wall street? Oh, wait, cutting NPR and EPA? Okay, that gets us about 1%

    Ok, first of all, while the majority of our Founding Fathers were Christians, the other 25% or so only identified themselves as such,but were actually Deists, who believe that God pretty much does not interfere or intervene in and with human concerns and that He endowed man with Reason for a purpose. Thomas Jefferson, Ben Franklin, Alexander Hamilton, Ethan Allen and James Madison were a few. And even among those who counted themselves as members of a particular denomination of Christianity, many were NOT fundamentalist (Bible-literalist and purist) in their religious beliefs. But while Christianity did have a great influence on the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, there were many other philosophical and practical influences, ranging from the Deists and Rationalists of Europe, and those from Ancient Rome and Greece. Our Founding Fathers were Highly educated. Secondly, because they were highly educated and were very familiar with History, they purposely went about to keep church and state seperate, while generally recognizing the importance of Church and religion as both a social institution and as a means, for as long as needed, of morals and values for the general populace..which at that time wasn’t very educated. So, in a way our country was and in a way not really so much founded on Christianity, although modern Christian fundamentalists are trying to reshape and revise our history as though ALL our founding Fathers were.

    Well, I can tell that most of you are all Republicans because you couldn’t stay on the subject at hand long enough with regard to how idiotic, uninformed, and ‘out there in la la land’ Akin is! You’re even talking about Bush tax cuts! What does that have to do with this story??? Not a damn thing!!! Not staying on the point of this article and strategically veering away from the newly crowned Republican’s problem, and even stirring up a few new issues, is typically a Republican trait. You obviously picked the best idiot to get things started in that direction. But, now I’m wondering just what the lesbians are supposed to drink. Ah, yes. I’d bet that’s his next scientific discovery which will be a ‘sure’ cure. Hey, at least he didn’t blame the Democrats for inventing homosexuality…yet. Another scientific study. Sorry, Akin. It’s well past time for you to hang it up. Don’t embarrass your family and your Party anymore.

  • http://www.facebook.com/natasha.vandervoort Natasha van der Voort

    Hahahahaha at least Claire McCaskill has a brain, calling on the national Republicans to “respect the choice of Missourians” and allow Akin to continue his campaign – it would then be a guaranteed victory for her :)

    As for Akin’s claims, I would love to hear what the National Institute of Health has to say in response to Akin’s accusations that they have not published the clinical trial results showing that 4 weeks to breast milk will cure a homosexual man.
    Too damned funny.

  • Buzzkill

    Actually, not so true. America is special in the developed world based on the fact that as a % of GDP, more money is funneled into the healthcare system then anywhere else. And the sad thing is, is that European/Canadian healthcare systems actually work and they boast a longer lifespan then us. So the whole “Universal healthcare doesn’t work” line is complete garbage.

  • Buzzkill

    A supply-side economists. AKA Moron. If I as a business have money to invest, and I see that there is a demand for a product, I am GOING to supply that product, even if there are taxes. Your argument is saying this: “Good god, all these people want iPods, and I have money to invest in making iPods, but gee wizz, all those pesky taxes, I think I’m not going to invest.” Utter crap.

  • Buzzkill

    His view isn’t mainstream? Are you kidding me? You do realize Ryan co-sponsored a bill proposed by Akin that would include the term “Forcible Rape” Instead of just “rape”, without giving a definition of “Forcible”? Later on Ryan would say “Rape is rape, end of story.” so why would he want to insert forcible into the bill? Absolute garbage, republicans are just scared of what would happen if there were no longer minorities in this country.

    The truth is, just like two heterosexuals, shacking up, outside the bonds of marriage, homosexulaity is perversion and those individuals must be delivered by the Holy Spirit.
    It is possible to leave a lifestyle of sin (I’ve known some, who have, mind you) but the sinner MUST repent of his/her sin, first!

    “Lesbians can be cured by drinking something else,” Akin replied “I’ll leave that one to your imagination.” Apparently natural, motherly nurturing cures homosexuality in males, but if you’re female, you’re stuck with the age-old “SWALLOW, BITCH.” The fact that this is completely invented just makes it more offensive. Homophobia alone isn’t enough. We MUST have misogyny at the same time!

    The most telling fact about far Right intelligence is that those who proclaim the most emphatically that they believe the Bible, quite obviously don’t read even the whole of the four Gospels. There are commandments after the first ten in Exodus that hold you accountable for the consequences of letting a dangerous ox loose, staring a fire, or digging a pit. Tell that to BP.

    I spent my boyhood as a Scottish Presbyterian, a follower of Calvin’s and Knox’s doctrine that every man was his own priest. As a consequence of diligently exercising that priesthood, I am convinced that the Universe is not a place created by a Being who loves humans, nor any other living, suffering organism. I am therefore an atheist.
    As for the founders of the USA, note that the most populist of them, the brilliant pamphleteer Thomas Paine, wrote “The Age of Reason” as a defence of the existence of God, and lambasted both the Old and New Testaments, which he accurately called the Hebrew and Greek Scriptures, as insulting to the Creator of that which is plainly evident in Nature. Nonw of the first five presidents was a Christian.

    You down Christianity. Christian values have brought so much good compared to about anything else. So what values do you want? I suspect communist or atheist values. So please go live where you will like the values. We are free to move about. Tell the professors who trained you they can go too. This freedom to move to what pleases you is a great gift the communists do not allow their subject. So your movement will be restricted once you get to your paradise. You will be totally taken care of once you get there. Plus, you will live away from those Christians you dislike.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Shawn-Lee/100000342041475 Shawn Lee

    So you are basically arguing that the only values OUTSIDE of ‘Christian’ values are atheistic and/or communist? Do you actually ever read books? Are you that small-minded and uneducated? And just where in my statement did I down Christian values, or said that I don’t like Christians? It is obvious that you are utterly incapable of logically deducing and extracting points from an argument or statement and understanding them for what they are, and THAT is PRECISELY why you Bible literalist Christians fail to understand the world around you.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Shawn-Lee/100000342041475 Shawn Lee

    Sorry, but stupid is as stupid does, which is a point well proven by this idiot’s ( Aiken’s) statements and some of the comments here. No, this was NOT founded on Christianity. Christianity was the religion that many of our Founding Fathers practiced ( not all of them by any means), and yes most of the colonies settled here escaped from the religious tyranny of England, but many of the educated colonists afterward saw the perils of ‘religious government’ of the religiously ran colonies and they broke free or worked to make them more democratic. That is NOT something merely taught to us by a High School history teacher..that is fact.
