Sen. Tom Coburn's (R-OK) chief of staff Michael Schwartz made the case against pornography. "All pornography is homosexual pornography," said Schwartz, quoting an ex-gay friend of his, "because all pornography turns your sexual drive inwards."
Schwartz then explained the side benefit of this finding — that if boys know pornography will make them gay, they'll never touch it, taking advantage of what Schwartz sees as a natural homophobia. "And if you tell an 11-year-old boy about that, do you think he's going to want to get a copy of Playboy?" he said. "I'm pretty sure he'll lose interest. That's the last thing he wants!"
You know what? I'd be interested in putting that to the test. Because I'll bet that if you tell 11 year old boys that reading Playboy will make them gay, most 11 year old boys will say "Okay. Whatever. I'll be gay. Now gimme my Playboy".
By the way,what Schwartz is advocating is using lies to manipulate young people. Think about that. Lies. At a Values Voters Summit.
