Tom Cotton Cares

I saw the movie, "The Imitation Game," recently and was thinking of mentioning it here. I had heard of Alan Turing, but knew nothing about him. I'm going by the movie in all that I write here. He was instrumental in the construction of what was an impressive computer used to break Germany's coded messages during WWII. After the war, he was arrested for homosexual acts and given a choice between imprisonment for 2 years or "chemical castration." He chose the latter and committed suicide subsequently.

It was not until 1967 that homosexuality became decriminalized in England. And it was likely because of caring pols like Tom Cotton.

 Be grateful, gays of America. Instead of being potentially denied services at your local restaurant, you could be living in Iran, where they execute gays.

That warm comparison comes from freshman Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), the defense hawk who set off a firestorm of criticism last month when he authored a letter to the leaders of Iran warning them that any deal struck over its nuclear program could be revoked by future U.S. presidents or members of Congress.  

Yes, Cotton is being hard-ass on the nuclear deal because he cares about homosexuals in Iran. Of course. No statement from Rick Santorum on horse marriage in Indiana yet.

Dusty Dionne, High Priest and High Summoner of the Aquarian Tabernacle Church of Washington State told The Daily Beast that, while he is horrified by the notion of RFRA being used against the LGBT community, he supports RFRA’s power to free Wiccans from religious oppression.

“Many of us believe that love is the law. Though it is not a quote-unquote Wiccan tenet to have polyamorous marriages, it is under Wiccan law that love is the law,” Dionne told The Daily Beast. “Whatever we want to do with marriage we can do. Carte Blanche. If I want to marry a horse, I can marry a horse.”


  1. I posted on this today too. Tom Cotton and his admirers seem a bit too eager to point out that gay people are murdered in the M.E. It's almost as though he envies the mullahs and ayatollahs their power to deal with gays.

  2. Hi Shaw, yes the thought that he might be a little jealous did cross my mind, too. I hope you'll join me in welcoming the betrothal of man and horse across this great nation when red state thinking becomes commonplace. Hi-Yo Silver indeed!

  3. Don't let anyone tell you that bigotry doesn't pay.
