Republican/Teabagger Sharron Angle: No Gay Adoptions

Thursday, August 6, 2010

Republican/Teabagger Sharron Angle is feverishly trying to unseat Senate Majority Leaders Harry Reid in Nevada.

Angle, a Southern Baptist, and by any measure, a far-right loon, admits openly how her faith informs her politics, moral and world views. She describes her campaign as a spiritual calling (a la Michelle Bachman.) Angle says Harry Reid and other Democrats in Washington are trying to “make government our God” by expanding entitlement programs.

In a recently completed the four-page questionnaire for a conservative political action committee, Angle makes it clear she has no use for “teh gays.” Among her positions, Angle would oppose making sexual orientation a protected minority in civil rights laws, and she opposes gay adoption.

No word if Angle advocates using the Hitlerian approach to dealing with “teh gays” by sending all of us to the ovens.

    Anyone that controlled by the Bible and religion is no one I want in the Congress. Angle sounds nutty to me and off the hook. What is it about religion that makes people so filled with hatred?

  2. Jolly Roger says:

    It isn’t the religion that makes them loons; they’re ALREADY screwed up. They grasp onto religion thinking that if they praise Jesus the loudest, the rest of us won’t notice their little proclivities.

  3. Rachel says:

    Harry Reid is far from perfect but Sharron Angle is much, much worse and if the people of Nevada elect her, I think they will regret it from day one. There is something terribly wrong with her. All I needed to hear was eliminate Social Security and I knew was is a dangerous extremist.

  4. Bel Ami says:

    Angle has crazy eyes.

    This hag would pop you with a bullet if you so much as pushed her on her Bible-thumping ways.

  5. It doesn’t matter if gay adoptions are banned or not, all they have to do is send out a Gay Black Ops Unit to inject gayitis in young children!

  6. R.J. says:

    I’d like to send that Christian to the lions. It was good enough for the Romans back in the day.

  7. lea-lea says:

    I grew up in Brea, CA. Middle class, Hispanic family and about as unremarkable as you can find.

    But I don’t ever recall hearing anyone, from my mom and dad, to my elderly grandparents, try to demonize gay people. In fact, my parents dragged us to Mass on Sunday and I don’t recall our priest ever mentioning gay people.

    So I am left scratching my head, completely unable to understand people like Sharron Angle, so really have it out for “the gays.” Where did she learn to think like this?

  8. Estacada says:

    I think homophobia (like racism) is a form of mental illness. Sharron Angle is clearly and certifiably sick and needs to be locked up in a mental institution.

    Just my opinion…..

    //opposes gay adoption.// ????????

    I didn’t know you could adopt Gay People. Is this something new? I mean… my kids are grown and pretty much gone…. and I was thinking of getting a cat…. maybe I should adopt a Gay Person! Do they need shots? How do I do this….????

  10. fairlane says:

    I’m opposed to fat cunts adopting, as fat assness is a drain on our society both economically, and emotionally.

    It’s not my fault you hate yourself, and try to fill the void with Twinkies.

  11. taco says:

    I’m opposed to fat cunts adopting…


  12. fran says:

    Angle is a loose cannon- all her speeches talk about being at war- with faith prevailing. But just her brand of faith, with some guns thrown in.

    What a piece of….. work.

  13. Randy Arroyo says:

    She’s a kook and a religious extremist. Keep her out of Reid’s seat please. Angle is trouble.

  14. bradfrmphnx says:

    Angle was ahead of Reid by double digits. Now the only ones moaning are Angle’s camp as Reid is swiftley closing the gap because of the lunacy coming out of this nut job’s mouth. Rachel Maddow did a nice piece on her tonight.

  15. MaryReunited says:

    Angle may be nuts, but I have to say this from the standpoint of one who was “touched” by adoption. Adoption is a permanent solution to a temporary problem and it destroys one family to create another. How is this a good thing? We all know there are some children who should not be raised by the people who brought them into this world, but there has to be a better solution than adoption. Why not legal guardianship, kinship care? And frankly who gives a crap if you’re gay and a parent? Frankly it disgusts me that in this day and age we still have so many ism’s and phobia’s in our world. The Civil Rights movement started things and now we must finish the work for all those who are discriminated against.

  16. feminazi says:

    There is no evidence that children raised by gay and lesbian parents are in anyway disadvantaged. In fact, with more than 500,000 children living in foster care and another 500,000 children living in state and in local group homes, the need has never been greater than today. Many gay and lesbian couples stand ready to open their homes and arms to these children. This Sharron Angle is a monster and needs to get out of the way.

  17. Jim says:

    Another “leader” informed by blind religion. Why not just join the Taliban and then she can murder whom she pleases?

  18. AmericaNeedsUs says:

    All I can say is Sharron stands by what she believes in ( a LOT of politicians don’t) – she is a Christian and if you have read the Bible at all, you would have read “it is a sin to be gay”.(paraphrasing here) Also, in Nature, “gay” animals are killed by other animals.

    If you are gay (where you “were born that way” or you have chosen that life style – and there is growing scientific proof of the later), then live that lifestyle and quit whining because you can’t have kids or you can’t marry your lover. I am a married person – I chose to live that lifestyle so I don’t hang out in single’s bars. Ya can’t have it both ways.

  19. Brigadoon says:

    AmericaNeedsUs — The USA is a representative democracy and not a theocracy. If you don’t like this fact, I suggest you pack your bags and relocate to Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan or Somalia. BTW, your Bible also says it’s OK for men to beat their wives. Now, start packing.

    americans need to hate someone – commies, russians, iraqis, the taliban, immigrants and gays.

    all this hate is fueled by the xenophobes, homophobes and non-whiteophobes that preach daily from many many MANY pulpits in buildings called a church

  21. Bungy says:


    Your “analysis” is full of assumptions. Like the way you assume that all lgbt/q folks want to marry and have kids all while still getting down at the clubs and circuit parties every night. But of course, str8 folks NEVER do that, right? First, queer identity is about so much more than bar culture, and while I got no beef with bar culture, it is not where I spend my time. Second, I know too many str8 folks (many of whom spend a fair amount of Sundays in church) who leave their kids at home to go out drinking and drugging. Party-culture and drug-culture are not exclusive to a particular sexuality.

    There is no singular “lifestyle” for lgbt/q folks any more than there is a singular lifestyle for str8 folks. That you reduce (and stigmatize) THE gay lifestyle as only one way of being reveals not only your ignorance but your prejudice. Sexuality may be genetic or it may be a choice (or, more likely, it is a complicated combination of both), but either way it doesn’t moot the point of protecting the rights of others.

    The sad fact is that currently bigots like Angle (and possibly you) can trump any legal arrangement I make with my same-sex partner of 15 years. Our relationship, by any name, is not recognized while your straight marriage is. In the end, it is the state recognition of the legal status of our relationship that I care about. Try hoping the nurse won’t petulantly dismiss your relationship to your partner and deny your right to see him after an emergency operation and tell me I have the same rights as you.

    As for adopting kids, it is a sad day when religious zealots would rather see children (flesh and blood people!) suffer in an institutionalized foster care system rather than let them be adopted by willing couples with the finances and love to care for them and help them make it in this world. Try asking a kid trapped in the system if he/she would prefer a stable home with same-sex parents or another spin of the foster-care wheel of (mis)fortune. Then tell me who stands behind what they believe in, who’s vote actually counts.

    You can hate on “the gays” in your church. You can hate on us in your homes. You can even spout your hate in the streets, as long as you can handle somebody else shouting back. All of this is well within your rights, both prior to and after the overturning of Proposition 8. But when you translate your hate into public policy, or when your candidate tries to use it to boost her numbers through fear…well, then you are going to encounter more of a push back than street shouting or counter-arguments in a blog’s comment section.
