The Wisdom of David Howard

Last week, the U.S. Supreme Court began its consideration of the arguments about the constitutionality of same-sex marriage.  Here in Montana, Health and Human Services Committee Chair David Howard, perhaps the last person that should be permitted to make laws about health or humans, penned a bizarre and hate-filled argument of his own.

Howard has scoured the internet for world’s least credible anti-gay propaganda sites and is now spamming them out across the state via email.  Howard must spend a lot of time on such sites–his Facebook page is dedicated almost entirely to anti-gay postings (and occasional donkey porn apparently.)

With the email pasted below the fold, Howard wanted to share his views that although “homosexuals” are “deviant” drug addicts with psychiatric problems and bulimia, they can be “cured.”

Rep. Howard is also on the record saying he believes a Civil War is imminent. He also believes that “the godless liberals are forcing America’s kids to be sitting ducks” for mass murderers, and that medical marijuana leads to death.

Subject: IS HOMOSEXUAL BEHAVIOR A PSYCHOLOGICAL DISORDER

 

1.   IS HOMOSEXUAL BEHAVIOR A PSYCHOLOGICAL DISORDER THAT IS DEVIANT BEHAVIOR
In America today there is about 2.5% are homosexual as defined as relating to, or characterized by direct sexual desire toward another of the same sex. Homosexual behavior is aberrant, anomalous, atypical, deviant, preternatural, unrepresentative, and untypical.
2.   Homosexuality and Mental Health Problems
By N.E. Whitehead, Ph.D.
(Author of “My Genes Made Me Do It”)
Summary: Recent studies show homosexuals have a substantially greater risk of suffering from psychiatric problems than do heterosexuals. We see higher rates of suicide, depression, bulimia, antisocial personality disorder, and substance abuse.
The American Psychiatric Association removed homosexuality from its diagnostic list of mental disorders in 1973, despite substantial protest (see Sorceries, 1995). The A.P.A. was strongly motivated by the desire to reduce the effects of social oppression. However, one effect of the A.P.A.’s action was to add psychiatric authority to gay activists’ insistence that homosexuals as a group are as healthy as heterosexuals. This has discouraged publication of research that suggests there are, proven psychiatric problems associated with homosexuality.

4.   Eminent Psychiatrist Says Homosexuality is a Disorder that Can be Cured
Says studies show 70-80 percent chance that child adopted by homosexuals will develop same tendencies
By Matthew Cullinan HoffmanBUENOS AIRES, May 1, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The eminent Spanish psychiatrist Enrique Rojas gave a speech yesterday in Buenos Aires declaring that homosexuality is “a clinical process that has an etiology, pathogeny, treatment, and cure”.Speaking at the Buenos Aires International Book Fair about his book “Goodbye, Depression”, Rojas characterized homosexual orientation as a “disorder” rather than an illness, and stated his opinion that 95% of cases are caused by environmental factors, according to the Spanish news service Terra.The disorder, according to Rojas, is the result of an absent father, overweening mother, or sexual abuse in childhood.Rojas blasted the homosexual movement for promoting the development of homosexual tendencies in young people, and particularly condemned the practice of allowing homosexual couples to adopt children.
Rojas said, it still shocks me that people engage in behavior that damages themselves and others.
 
It is irresponsible to promote or encourage a lifestyle that causes such physical destruction. It should break your heart to see a teenage boy who needs surgery because his bowels can’t function properly because of being repeatedly violated by men, whether it’s consensual or not. Lesions, scarring, warts, tearing, abscesses, cancer, the need for colostomies and much more are all rampant and never reported. How can someone perpetrate these afflictions on someone they claim to love?
 
5.   EMDR AND REPARATIVE THERAPY: A TRAUMA-BASED MODEL FOR TREATING UNWANTED SAME-SEX ATTRACTION
by Dr. Norman Goldwasser 
It is widely known that a significant majority of men who deal with same-sex attractions have been victims of some sort of abuse, whether it is sexual, emotional, or physical, which can traumatize the developing child and derails psychosexual development. There are also other, sometimes less obvious, forms of trauma that also may affect a young boy or adolescent’s ability to connect with his masculinity, to experience non-sexual male bonding, or to have an attraction for the opposite gender. These all represent trauma-related disruptions to normal psychosexual development that often lead to Same Sex Attraction, which are all treatable and healable.
IS HOMOSEXUAL BEHAVIOR, DEVIANT BEHAVIOR?  GOOD QUESTION?
Rep. David Howard, Montana
When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; But when a wicked man rules,
the people groan. (Pr. 29:2)
“Nothing is politically right which is morally wrong.”
Daniel O’Conner, 1829

  1. Quick get him over to Kern’s clinic….another mad dog that appears to be drowning in the foam around his mouth!

  2. It never ceases to amaze me that HD 60 continues to elect this idiot. Apparently he represents their views. Shame on them all.

  3. Was that chicken Kosher?

  4. Yet another wingnut with a mental disconnect.

  5. The creepiness is off the chart with this guy. Say, whats ol James Knox been up to I heard he is going to make a comeback….

  6. David, I can assure you that, after 50 years’ personal experience with the matter, you think about buttsecks way, WAY more than the average gay man. You’re what we refer to as a “troll”: a paunchy middle-aged white man completely obsessed with — and animated by — a single, narrow expression of human sexuality.

    Believe it or not, gay people have spare brain cycles to think about things like our jobs, families, taxes, and how to get retrograde bigots like you out of our bedrooms.

    Think about the lesbians. Won’t someone PLEASE think about the lesbians???

  7. This guy David Howser is sick!!!

    Attention David if you actually get a chance to read the Bible, the King James, and or Coptic Version, and not some new fangled American version written by a thumper… or a bumper sticker on the back of some christians car you’re gonna find:

    Adam and Eve was a creation story, nowhere in the Bible do they exchange rings, say “I do” or have a jazz band reception in Paradise.

    The men of Sodom tell Lot to hand over the male visitors so that they may “know” them, i.e. sexually know them (giving rise to the term “sodomy”). Lot bargains with the visitors, to the distaste of a contemporary female like me, by offering the men his virgin daughters instead. Any reader of ancient literature (of which the Hebrew Bible is a component for us Jews) would realize the familiar motif concerning hospitality. The story is not one denigrating same-sex practice; instead it upholds the incredible (and ludicrous) hospitality of Lot as a virtue, as he gives his daughters away, like exchanging property to men he does not even know.

    Lastly, There is nothing attributed to Jesus of Nazareth that has anything to do with same-sex orientation. According to the gospels, Jesus never commented on same-sex practices; that fact certainly bears repeating to anyone criticizing the gay community on Christian grounds. .. Jesus never commented on same-sex practices!!!

    When people like Howard point to the letter of Paul, and Romans… all you see is a shit storm laundry list of vices including male prostitutes, sodomites, fornicators, idolaters, adulterers,” all the while, Paul is actually addressing the issue of a church member sleeping with his stepmother.

    In other words, Paul is addressing ALL deviant sexual and immoral behavior, not just that of a same-sex variety. Paul describes the root sin of the Gentiles as idolatry, and the consequences of idolatry. Romans is just as vague. While the Romans text offers the longest discussion of same-sex behavior in the New Testament, it is unclear whether it truly is a condemnation of a specific practice.

    I wish people like Howard actually read the Bible, then they would find out what Hypocrites they have really become!

  8. Mr. Howard is gay. Not that there is anything wrong with that, but he’s definitely gay…quit fighting it there bub, it’s o.k., let it out….

  9. Amanda Curtis

  10. Whenever someone takes pride in diminishing others (classically called a “sin” in the Christian church) it not only proves the inability of said person to reason clearly, it also provides clear example of narcissistic ignorance, arrogance and unresolved power issues….
