Stern Bats Down Bachmann
March 11, 2012 4 Comments
Howard Stern reacted on Tuesday to Michele Bachmann’s admonition that we should open our hearts to the anti-gay bigotry exhibited those such as Kirk Cameron.
On Monday, Bachmann had told Piers Morgan…
I think it’s very important though that people who have sincerely held religious beliefs — I do — I think it’s important that we respect those people’s beliefs.
On Tuesday, Stern used the comedian’s technique of exposing an idea by extending its logic.
STERN: Respect people’s beliefs who believe that gay people should be converted to heterosexuals? It’s like this whole “let’s not believe in science” bullshit. Why do I have to respect somebody’s beliefs because they’re religious beliefs? So should I respect those guys who put a fatwa, or whatever the f#ck it is, on our country?
I agree with Stern that bigotry shouldn’t be excused simply because it’s religious in nature, and I appreciate that he’s been reminding his audience that Bachmann’s husband Marcus has attempted to use Christian counseling to “cure” homosexuals. Truth Wins Out, which is a group trying to combat this sick and sickening practice, has the undercover report.
