Behold! Unified Conspiracy Theory!

This is classic!

Serial killers, government tyrants, academic liberals, Catholic
, politicians, Mormon Church higher-ups, Jewish rabbis, environmental
extremists, communists, religious heretics, mass murderers, occultists, spies,
and the Illuminati share something hideous and grotesque in common. Almost all
are Sodomites. Worse, most of the sick-minded men and women who comprise these
demented social groups are not only homosexual, they practice the most kinky and
perverted forms of sexual licentiousness-pedophilia, Satanic bondage, physical
torture, bisexuality, transvestitism, and even bestiality. God says that Sodomy
is a sin

Okay...let's go throught this slowly, because otherwise my entire response to this will just be hysterical laughter. Though I do not doubt that there may have been some gay serial killers (John Wayne Gacy for example) it is hardly indicative of the implied evils of homosexuality anymore than it would suggest that Christianity is inherently evil if there happened to be a large number of Christian serial killers (though it is interesting to point that my previous example, Gacy, probably would not have become a serial killer if it weren't for people like the originator of this quote creating a climate in which homosexuality is unacceptable, because most of Gacy's victims were teenage boys that he had slept with...presumably killing them to frantically hide his homosexuality and protect his reputation).

Interestingly, the few "government tyrants" who were found to be gay also happened to be the most fervent in their opposition to homosexuality in public settings and legislation.

I'm not sure if he seriously entertains the idea that all academic liberals are gay, but just because liberals happen to be side of the political spectrum that support homosexuality does not make all of them just means that most sane and honest "Sodomites" as you call them would not affiliate with conservative politics, unless they had a touch of legislative sado-masochism about them.

The Catholic priest and Mormon thing is a very clever attempt to associate pedophilia with homosexuality (which he does explicitly later on, and which is a common occurrence in such fundamentalist rants). As for "Jewish rabbis"...I have no idea where that comes from, but I bet that it is just rooted in sheer anti-Semitism rather than actual news items. This seems to be the case, because his last two lines of culprits just seems to be a random string of groups that he doesn't like: "communists, religious heretics, mass murderers, occultists, spies, and the Illuminati ." Gotta love that he decided to put the Illuminati on the's the cherry on top of the insanity sundae. He then goes on to smother it with hatred sauce.

He brings up "Satanic bondage" as a sexual perversion that "teh gheys" are into (though "Satanic" is a bit of a leap, and I wouldn't doubt if more heterosexual couples happen to dabble in it than gay ones). I'm not sure if "physical torture" is supposed to be distinct from Satanic bondage, or if he is saying that they are off getting their jollies in Guantanimo Bay. I don't know how one could consider "bisexuality" as a sexual perversion in an attempt of proving how perverse homosexuality is, but by God, circularity has never stopped these people before!

And thus we come to last two sexual perversions. First, is "transvestitism", which, honestly, could not really be considered a sexual perversion because it doesn't have so much to do with actual sexual activity as it does with dressing up as the opposite sex. That's what it literally means. It is not evil, it is not perverted, it is just a challenge to your Puritanical views to how people should dress. And, then there is "bestiality", which has nothing to do with homosexuality, and is done by people in some countries who still hold that homosexuality is evil and worthy of punishment.

And, after looking into all of that, I get to see the original quote again, in its entirety. A long line of ill-founded accusations of almost every group that this person could think of that does not include himself. And I laugh.
