Watch The Gay Moralist Debunk Every Anti-Gay Excuse In 8 Minutes

We’ve only got 4 Minutes To Save The World! 8 minutes to shoot down practically every excuse for anti-gay discrimination and homophobia. Who ya gonna call?

Dr. John Corvino, The Gay Moralist, obviously. Go get em, Doc!

The parts don’t fit: Check. Animals don’t do it: Check. The Bible say it’s an abomination: Check. Gays flaunt their sexuality in straights’ faces: Check. The Gay Moralist takes on each of these popular misnomers and debunks them with ease in this short video. It’s a must watch for anyone who may ever find themselves face to face with an opinionated bigot (RE: All of us, unfortunately.)

Brush up on your responses to each of these anti-gay insanities. Consider it a homework assignment.

The Gay Moralist really puts a nice spin on things, eh?

  • Amazing a must watch!

    Dr. Corvino is awsome… I always loved his columns on 365gay.com! He has the gift of getting his point across in a way that everyone can understand.

    This has to be once of the best speeches i’ve heard about homosexual rights unfortunately a lot of things he said get ignored like when other people mention some of those things.

    Why? Because people love having a group to be the “other.” And because it’s easier to be an ignorant jack-ass than it is to take some time to learn that gay and lesbian people are pretty much just like everyone else except for one thing. If you could see 24 hours in my day, you’d be amazed at just how much it’s like every married straight couple in the world.

    Hmm…idea brewing. Now that I have my snazzy new Flip Cam, I think I’ll do just that – film a 24 hour period in my life with my partner of 9 years, Eric. Then I’ll edit it into a one or two hour documentary and find someplace to air it. Maybe PBS’ “Independent Lens.” It’ll be the anti-“A-List” – which somebody REALLY needs to make to repair all the damage that train wreck has done. Thoughts?

  • Things even I have not thought of myself. its a + that he is funny about it too, in a serious light obviously.

    The problem is that no matter how much sense you make some people don’t want to listen. This guy is right in everything he said, as far as I am concerned, at least, but I don’t know how many times I’ve had the argument “You can’t prove it’s not a choice.” To which I point out the case of the study in which mice had their genes altered and started showing homosexual attractions, but the answer is always the same “I need more proof.” So in short; some people just WANT to be bigots because that’s all they’ve ever known.

  • i find this to be an awsome video and the person in it bravo to you. he makes the wording simple enough for a teenager such as myself and my bf to understand and ive got to show this to some of my former friends who have used these arguements before ^^ kudos to you dr. morality

    akes some solid points. Nice rebuttals. Now, if we are looking at the issue from a “Judeo-Christian” vantage (which I don’t think he is) than I have to propose then that we have to believe in, and adhere to, at least some Biblical, God-given “rules” though. Right? Even though, based on cultural and historical context they do change and evolve, they are there even if for interpretation.

    Thus, I’m under the stance that it’s not necessarily homosexuality that is wrong. That is, I completely, whole-heartedly believe that that man likes men or that woman likes women or possibly both. In fact I KNOW that they do.

    What seems to be “wrong” is “practiced-homosexuality”. There’s a vast difference between thoughts and action in relation to “sin”. I may have feelings for that tree, but I’d better not have sex with it; I may want to kill my boss but I don’t; I may hate dogs but I shouldn’t kick them; I may love naked women but I shouldn’t watch porn; I love women but if I lust after them them guess what — sin. And that was just in my heart. And so on and so on. Just because we can do something doesn’t make it right. (I put sin into quotations because there are varying degrees of sin as Paul talks about; sin that does and does not lead to death.)

    The reason I adhere to this notion about practice versus unpracticed sin, thoughts versus action, engaging and non-engaging is because this makes heterosexuality wrong as well (gasp!). But again, it’s not heterosexuality that is wrong but the sexual things one can engage in out of Biblical context of what we consider marriage today.

    Anyway, I think heteros are as screwy, if not moreso, than gays. I mean, the quasi-prostitution we see on shows like The Bachelor, the mockery of marriage on reality shows like “Who Wants to Marry…”, and so on. And yet, to be fair, on the other hand, many media platforms of late always show anyone who is “against” homosexuality as uptight and cruel (read: Christians) and gays as understanding and loving above all (Easy A. The Kids Are All right. Saved. Brokeback Mountain. All movies I like by the way.) So both sides are doing a disservice in one way or another.

    But, if we have “rules” then we are all in the same boat to live as righteously as we can based on those rules. And, especially if we know said rules, than living righteously is more than love, compassion, sympathy and understanding. It now entails some level of conviction for actions that may be contrary to God-ordained laws — for gays and straights. — because we are with knowledge and must behave accordingly. As such, there are certain things we ALL just CANNOT do without ramifications both physically and, more importantly, spiritually. Without conviction for actions we think to take or we do take we make a mockery of God; we choose our way above His. We pull his grace in with one hand while simultaneously bringing in sin with the other. We use the former to justify the latter.

    And that’s the real sin.
