Alan Keyes: Gay Marriage Is Like A Child ‘Picking In Their Nostrils’ And ‘Eating What Came Out’

Alan Keyes, the thrice-failed Republican presidential candidate, yesterday told a group of university students that same-sex marriage is not a fundamental right, rights come only from God, and compared the institution to a young child who had a habit of “picking in their nostrils” and “eating what came out,” as MLive reports:

“The Republic is near death and it will die if we don’t wake up,” he said. “But wake up to what?”

He answered his own question when talking about fundamental rights, where they came from and how the country needs to recognize that rights come from God.

Abortion, same-sex marriage and separation of church and state are not fundamental rights, Keyes said. If God does not recognize them, they do not exist.

“The Declaration of Independence was the first action of the people of the United States,” Keyes said. “The first thing they did was to acknowledge God as the law giver.”

Keyes said while abortion, same-sex marriage and separation of church and state are not basic human rights there are leaders who are trying to “fabricate” rights.

“People who sit on the U.S. Supreme Court take it among themselves to argue that somehow there should be separation of church and state,” he said. “Nothing in the Constitution requires separation, nor could it because we cannot separate the country from its finding premise without destroying it.”

When arguing what a fundamental right actually is, Keyes gave an offbeat example of a young child who had a habit of “picking in their nostrils and “eating what came out.”

As the child grew up they noticed others were disgusted and did not want to be near him. As an adult the individual argued if others have the right to eat what they want, the individual should be recognized as having the same right.

“How many think that is a fundamental right?” he asked the audience.

No one raised their hand.

“Nobody in their right mind would suggest it was,” Keyes said. “What makes something a fundamental right that actually trumps the Constitution of the United States? It can’t just be because you feel like it, or want to do it. It can’t just be that you feel badly about what you do because of the opinions of others, these are not arguments of rights…rights come from God.”

Keyes has spent the past few weeks attacking same-sex marriage, claiming it is a violation of the Declaration of Independence and “the archetype of all crimes against humanity.”

No article about Alan Keyes should go without mentioning that he disowned his lesbian daughter.

The Republican Party: Keeping it Classy

You meant of course, "Alan Keyes, failed human being, and failed parent.."

How would Alan Keyes feel if some people said to him, You're a monkey, an ass, one that eats bananas, with no intelligence. People said that about Black Americans many years ago. As a nation, we moved forward, to respect one another, not to judge people by the color of their skin, gender, but by their character..Imagine if someone put a gun to your daughters head, because you said these evil words. Would you then recognize , how hurtful you are as a father, a veteran, and as a supposed leader. You are gutter thrash. A man that resembles what white slave owners used to do black families. Being sexually abused by angry GOD fearing discriminate people is where you're headed. How you cried, and screamed as you were penetrated with a broomstick by angry mothers that you disrespected.

This MORON absolutely DISGUSTS me…Why does anyone give him a platform to spew his HATRED…??? That's the QUESTION: When will people silence this ASSHOLE…???

Same-sex marriage is an injustice, a tyrannical ploy being perpetrated upon our society, the pernicious consequences of which are simply mocked and laughed at by its supporters. Ignorance and prejudice have taken the place of knowledge and reason. Caprice and passion substituted for prudence and virtue. The happiness of society, the good of all families, and the welfare of mankind fall victim to the injustice of selfish love, which calculates every thing for itself while taking no notice of a child's best interest or the public advantage of a government promoting ONLY the traditional family unit.

In the eyes of a child, same-sex marriage appears adulterous by nature. Someone is not present in his/her home who is his/her true mother or father. No good can come from adultery, only broken homes and broken hearts. At best, an adoptive virtuous heterosexual man and woman can soften the evil sustained by children of adultery, but same-sex proponents want their adulterous families to be considered normal and "equal" to a monogamous heterosexual marriage — which study after study has proven to be the best environment for child-rearing. There is simply no virtue in ignorance, or in denying truth.

Here are two truths regarding marriage: (1) A man creating a family with another man is not equal to creating a family with a woman, and (2) denying children parents of both genders at home is an objective evil. Kids need and yearn for both.

Same-sex marriage is unconformable to the state of a rational social being, it is defective in principle, and has ONLY a deceitful appearance to young and old because it defies Natural Law. All babies grow up to eventually understand that it takes a man and a woman to bring a new life into the world.

At school, those kids who have two mothers or two fathers will be different, and the other children will notice that the child of a same-sex couple is different in many ways. Besides the obvious exclusion of either a mother or a father at home, a same-sex-marriage child is deprived of one necessary gender role model at home, and will undoubtedly interact differently than other children of his/her gender, and especially with regards to interacting with the opposite sex of his/her same-sex parents. It is without a doubt that these children will be recognized to be different by the children who have a mother and a father at home, and especially when they have both of their biological parents at home.

In order to protect the child of a same-sex marriage from any perceived harassment, that child will become a special protected class in the eyes of the government. School officials will have to punish and "re-educate" any child who "offends" the protected-class child by simply expressing that it seems strange that the child of the same-sex marriage is missing a mother or a father, or that the child acts in a manner unusual to his gender contemporaries.

This unjust punishment to subvert the natural understanding of children is evidence enough that same-sex families do not adhere to core principles of Natural Law, and because same-sex marriage defies Natural Law, pernicious consequences are inevitably. To punish a child for simply saying what he knows is true (all children have a mother and a father) is nothing less than a tyrannical oppression of children who instinctively rely upon Nature's Laws to help them understand life and natural consequences. Children will be coerced to accept as "natural" what are unnatural behaviors, and this challenge to their instinctual knowledge of right and wrong will result in confusion. A morally-confused child is more susceptible to evil and perversion than one who is confident in his knowledge of right and wrong. Evil-doers know this, and will thrive in a society that indoctrinates its children to see no inherent evil in disregarding Natural Laws. Alas, those who support same-sex marriage have apparently fallen too far into the depravity of tolerating licentiousness themselves to realize or acknowledge the harm and injustice same-sex marriage imposes upon our children and thus our society. Society institutionalizes marriage to enforce the natural rights and obligations of the organic family.

Marriage was instituted to protect the Natural Rights of children. Same-sex marriage ignores nature and tramples those rights in the name of "equality".

Thank you for your opinion however who are you to say that a same-sex family is inadequate to an opposite-sex family? Do you have actual, empirical data to justify that claim?

I know several same-sex families that are the most loving and caring families I've ever seen and also know opposite-sex families of personal friends that you couldn't pay me enough money to be a part of.

Marriage has nothing to do with the Natural Rights of children. Marriage was and is a contract between 2 people…biblical marriage includes God, civil marriage is related to rights with the state defined by the state. Children, until rather recently, were considered as property. Are you still able to sell your daughter…that was a right at one point and still is today in many areas of the world.

I really don't understand why people have so many issues with 2 people loving each other. You don't see protests in the streets trying to undo opposite-sex marriage because of spousal abuse or 72-day celebrity marriages, do you? Aren't those things more destructive to the concept of marriage than 2 men or 2 women who love each other wanting to make that committment to each other and having the legal protections that such committment allows?

I came from a "traditional" family and while my mother and father were my greatest role models…they weren't the only ones to help in my development as a person. There are more people than I can count, which include pastors, teachers, parents of friends, aunts and/or uncles, etc that gave me both good and bad examples of how to be as a person in this world. A parent, mother or father, can only provide examples based on their experiences and where that lacks since the child is a totally different and seperate individual has to search for other examples to help their child grow. This happens in any type of family – same-sex, opposite-sex, single parent, etc.

Life is a lot larger than you give it credit for.

I am so tired of hearing people go on about these issues. The Bible "gives" fundamental rights that we no longer adhere to. According to the Bible I have the right to enact vengance against a neighbor if he offends me (eye for an eye which is still practiced today), sell my children (especially my daughters) should I so choose, etc. It also calls slavery a fundamental right…should we bring slavery back Mr Keyes?

This is the 21st century. We've moved past many of the biblical rights because they no longer fit with society. People always confuse "biblical marriage" with "civil marriage". No one in America is looking to redefine biblical marriage. Civil marriage is a CONTRACTUAL RELATIONSHIP set up between two parties and the STATE as it relates to property rights, assets, etc. That is what needs to be modified.

I am SO tired of hearing these people talk.

I compare Alan Keyes to the stuff people pick out of their nose.

" where they came from and how the country needs to recognize that rights come from God."

1. You come from an insane asylum, so no.
2. Rights did NOT come from god. They came from several people getting together and putting them down on a piece of paper. It's not some 'omen' that some divine being said "Hey, this is what you get, deal with it."

It's no wonder I don't like going out in public and dealing with people. Bad enough dealing with them online now and days. LOL
