Video is above, transcript is here:
Quote:
MICHAEL SCHWARTZ, SEN. COBURN’S CHIEF OF STAFF: It’s been a few years, but not that many, since I was closely associated with pre- adolescent boys, boys who are like 10 to 12 years of age. But it is my observation that boys at that age have less tolerance for homosexuality than just about any other class of people. They speak badly about homosexuality. And that’s because they don’t want to be that way. They don’t want to fall into it.

And that’s a good instinct. After all, homosexuality, we know, studies have been done by the National Institutes of Health to try to prove that it’s genetic and all those studies prove it’s not genetic. Homosexuality is inflicted on people.

SCHWARTZ: All pornography is homosexual pornography because all pornography turns your sexual drive inwards. Now think about that. And if you — if you tell an 11-year-old boy about that, do you think he’s going to want to go out and get a copy of "Playboy"? I’m pretty sure he’ll lose interest. It’s the last thing he wants.

So the conservative solution to the problem is obviously to legalize and subsidize prostitution, since that would make sure that even the ugliest, socially awkward teen could focus their sexuality outward by having sex with a professional woman.

Right?

To begin with... I could make no sense of what the guy was saying... whoever he is.

Secondly, homosexuality isn't a "conservative problem". That's as pointless a statement as saying "all liberals want to fuck your little boys".

Thirdly, I have nothing against prostitution.

Fourthly, pornography is not a healthy addition to a pre-adolescent boy's life whether you are religious, atheist, conservative or liberal.

Fifthly, did I just make up that word? "Fifthly" I mean.

According to Mormons, looking at porn will turn you into a pedophile.

Perhaps not... but when I was eleven my life was an almost constant search for pornography. Of course, back in the day it was amazingly difficult for an eleven year old to get his hands on porno if, like myself, you were unfortunate enough to not have either a big brother or a father who indulged.

Although this seems to be funny (and explaining jokes, on the contrary, never is), an explanation for the non-US forum lurkers might be a great addition. I'm clueless.

It's a cheap shot about the garment Mormons wear as a symbol of their promise to God.

It's sort of like calling cross necklaces "magic necklaces" except that jokes about necklaces don't appeal to our inner-five-year-old.

Research on sex offenders shows that they only get aroused when watching porn of their particular fetish. So a child molester would only enjoy child porn, a bestiality fetish only would be aroused watching animals, and so on. By that same logic, homosexuals would only be aroused watching homosexual porn therefore throwing a wrench into the original premise.

I've highlighted where I think your approach and his diverge.

So, let me get this straight. It's cool for you to mock people who believe that homosexuality is inflicted, but mocking those that believe in holy underwear is childish? That doesn't seem very sportsmanlike, for you to pick and choose who's worthy of criticism.

I have no problem with mockery, per se. What makes the "magic underwear" argument childish, in my opinion, is that it's false (AFAIK the garment is just symbolic of a Mormon's commitment to God and is not thought to have any magic powers) and that it's designed to appeal to a childish sense of humor. Heh. They have magic underwear. Maybe it makes them have holy shits. Heh.

Maybe not your inner five-year old. I do have to say though, I find it strange that so many people carry a form of execution around their neck. Unless it's to fight off that vampires.

No the "magic" is in the sybolism. Why does anyone need any form of garment to show their commitment? Self flagilation is equally ridiculous so why don't they do that? Because it's easier and less painful and more "magical" and private.

While not official church doctrine, there are a lot of folk stories and legends in Mormon culture about people who avoided catastrophe by wearing their garments. E.g. two Mormons get into a car accident. One is killed, one is not. The one who lives was wearing her temple garments. Coincidence?

So, not officially "magic" but there is some cultural element of that belief present.

*looks down at his wedding ring*

Symbolism and ritual is very human. Almost every organized human activity has some element of ritual and symbolism tied to it, whether it's the bell on the NYSE, playing anthems at sports games, wearing bands of metal on our fingers, saying "bless you" when someone sneezes, etc., etc.

Many Catholics carry Rosary beads with them. I doubt any of them think they are magic antennae without which God or Mary couldn't hear their prayers. Muslims type pbuh or say "peace be upon him" whenever they use the Prophet's name. Some Jews type G-d, and it's not because they think God is really, really bad at Hangman.

I've heard plenty of stories of Christians being saved because they had a Bible on them, with the most famous being folks who took a bullet right through to Job.

Personally I don't see a whole lot of difference between crucifixes, Mormon underwear and microbadges or avatars on BGG. Each pronounces something "about" the person that they enjoy, believe, adhere to, admire, revere or in some way, shape or form, they choose to adorn themselves with... either in a physical or "electronic" sense.

It's pretty fucking hypocritical to look down on underwear or religious icons while brandishing a microbadge declaring that you enjoy Lovecraft or have a "rainbow" mentality.

You worship devil bunnies and toilet paper? You look down on people who disagree all the time. (In a far more agressive way I might add.)
