We've All Been Dying to Know What Joe the Plumber Thinks of the Gays
Well, finally! We've all been waiting for someone to ask Joe the Plumber his views on homosexuality, since they're so relevant. The brave publication? Christianity Today, bitchez. Take us there, Joe:
People don't understand the dictionary—it's called queer. Queer means strange and unusual. It's not like a slur, like you would call a white person a honky or something like that. You know, God is pretty explicit in what we're supposed to do—what man and woman are for. Now, at the same time, we're supposed to love everybody and accept people, and preach against the sins. I've had some friends that are actually homosexual. And, I mean, they know where I stand, and they know that I wouldn't have them anywhere near my children. But at the same time, they're people, and they're going to do their thing.
This honky has a great point: gays, who are strange and unusual (and who by definition cannot be slurred), want to hang with his kids. This is true. And I haven't heard a point so air-tight and well articulated since that Miss South Carolina contestant argued that Americans need more maps, for South Africa and such as.
I have a few friends who are plumbers that think Joe is a dumbass. This is not a slur because it's in the dictionary. (The Urban one.)
