Kevin McCullough claims that nobody is gay

Thursday, March 15, 2012

After calling GLAAD a tool of the Devil, talk show host Kevin McCullough defended previous statements, listed by GLAAD’s Commentator Accountability Project, that gay couples “despise” marriage and are “seeking to destroy” it.

McCullough said that they are indeed trying to “destroy” marriage, but took issue with GLAAD’s use of the term “gay,” because according to McCullough, “I don’t believe that you can be gay.”

He said that being gay is a choice and warned that “homosexual behaviors can end up killing you” because “homosexual behaviors when acted upon in the teenage years greatly increases the likelihood if you’re male that you will try to commit suicide.” McCullough is correct in arguing that gay youth do have a higher risk of suicide, but seems to ignore the fact that anti-gay prejudice and bias in society plays a large role in why there is the higher suicide rate.

Watch:

“I don’t believe that you can be gay. I believe that people engage in homosexual behavior, and I believe that homosexual behaviors can end up killing you, and I think that homosexual behaviors when acted upon in the teenage years greatly increases the likelihood if you’re male that you will try to commit suicide,” McCullough said.

McCullough hosts the radio program “The Kevin McCullough Show.”

  15. Such great news. I though SURE I was as gay as Christmas itself. Okay I guess I’ll just go back in time to when I was eligible to join the service, marry the opposite sex and have kids, go to my prom, and not have to spend every day of years 13-19 avoiding the ignorance and hatred that were everywhere I looked. Thanks Kevin, it’s all better now. Genius.

  41. Was there ever a specific definition or marriage? Only thing that Bugs me about marriage is that my right to marry has to be decided by others.

    Posted on Thursday, March 15, 2012 at 4:43pm
  51. Thank you for clarifying this issue for me, Mr. McCullough. So my lifeling passion for licking adult men’s privates is, what? A deeply repressed desire for cunnilingus?

    Posted on Thursday, March 15, 2012 at 4:54pm
  52. Free speech in no way implies any real level of intelligence.

    Posted on Thursday, March 15, 2012 at 5:18pm
  53. i find it pathetic that he would proclaim that no one is gay. If that were true, then why are men so attractive to other men and women to other women? As a Bi, i fantasize men and women. Does that mean i’m nonexistent? Also, kids are not dying because they’re gay but because bigots like you think it’s ok to bully them and make every LGBT lives a living hell!

    Posted on Thursday, March 15, 2012 at 6:16pm
  54. Could he have been a victim of the ex-gay ministry?!?

    Posted on Thursday, March 15, 2012 at 10:02pm
