Taking Christ's name in vain, Biden blasts biblical marriage 'bigots'

While addressing one of the nation's leading homosexual activist groups on Friday in the nation's capital, Vice President Joe Biden used the name of Jesus Christ in vain while defending the claim of the LGBT community that homosexuality is hereditary.

Biden was challenging prospective Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson's assertion last week that homosexuality is a choice … a learned behavior — not a gender or inherent biological state of being.

"A lot of people who go into prison go into prison straight — and when they come out, they're gay," the acclaimed neurosurgeon told CNN's Chris Cuomo. "So, did something happen while they were in there? Ask yourself that question."

Apologizing later for his "choice of language" on a Facebook post, Carson wrote that even though he opposes same-sex "marriage" due to his Christian beliefs, individual states should be able to choose whether it's legal.

"I support civil unions for gay couples, and I have done so for many years," Carson expressed. "I support the right of individual states to sanction gay marriage, and I support the right of individual states to deny gay marriage in their respective jurisdictions."

Apology not good enough

Despite Carson's apology, Biden took the opportunity at the annual conference of the Washington, DC-based Human Rights Campaign, the nation's largest pro-LGBT lobbying group, to condemn the GOP candidate for his belief that homosexual behavior is a learned trait.

VP Joe Biden talking to HRC 620x300"Every ridiculous assertion from Dr. Carson on — I mean, ridiculous. I mean, J****, G**," Biden exclaimed before the LGBT crowd. "Oh G**. I mean, it's kind of hard to fathom, isn't it?"

The vice president then resorted to name calling, insinuating that Carson and others who ascribe to the biblical view of homosexuality should be eradicated from the planet in the name of "equality" and "tolerance."

"We're never going to be able to eliminate the bigots," Biden continued his rant. "They're a small percentage of the population."

Biden went on to assure the pro-LGBT crowd that even though the Obama administration cannot enforce a thought police, people who stand for their religious convictions are in the process of being wiped out — as the White House's homosexual agenda continues to proliferate across the nation.

To date, 37 states plus the District of Columbia have legalized same-sex marriage, whereas it was legal in only three states when Obama took office in January 2009. The president also erased the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy, essentially normalizing homosexual behavior in the U.S. military and squashing religious freedom throughout every branch of the armed forces.

"They'll continue to be vocal," Biden conceded. "But make one thing absolutely clear, folks, they are an incredibly smaller and smaller minority. This country is changing."

Crafting homosexual behavior into a civil rights issue

Using the observance of Selma's "Bloody Sunday" 50th anniversary commemoration this weekend celebrating the black civil rights demonstrations of 1965, Biden argued that the homosexual agenda to legalize same-sex marriage is a modern-day reflection of Martin Luther King's civil rights movement.

"[It is] in fact the same basic movement," Biden contended.

For years, homosexual activists have insisted that there is such a thing as a "gay gene," even though clinical research has refuted such a claim. Embracing the debunked notion and selling point, the homosexual agenda argues that gender identity — what sexuality a person self-proclaims himself or herself to be — determines whether a person is male or female instead of biological characteristics.

Since officially declaring his allegiance with the homosexual agenda and promoting same-sex marriage in 2012 — just days before Obama made his public announcement endorsing such unions after his "evolution" on the issue from his 2008 election stance — Biden has pushed the LGBT doctrine that homosexuality and "transgenderism" are hereditary and a natural state of being. That belief contradicts the Judeo-Christian beliefs under which he was raised as a Roman Catholic.

"I am absolutely comfortable with the fact that men marrying men, women marrying women, and heterosexual men and women marrying one another are entitled to the same exact rights, all the civil rights, all the civil liberties," Biden proclaimed in 2012.

Both Biden and Obama have advocated for federal legalization of same-sex marriage via a U.S. Supreme Court ruling, which would wipe out the remaining amendments protecting traditional marriage in the 13 states that don't currently recognize such unions. The high court's ruling that could negate those amendments is expected by late June.
