Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill, a Republican contender in the 2020 U.S. Senate race, has set off a new controversy after saying Americans' fixation with "homosexual activities" has, in part, caused the country's moral decline.

"There are no more good TV shows on like ‘Gunsmoke,' ‘Bonanza,' ‘The Virginian,' ‘Andy Griffith,' ‘I Love Lucy.'

I watch them on TV Land, and we also have a channel called Antenna TV that plays all the good old shows.

Als, I watch TCM almost always. great old movies.

We're too interested in homosexual activities.

What do you mean "we"...

Sounds like the guy in question is in the closet.
These guys always are. I'm sure this guy samples some "man sausage" from time to time.

I'd say the state of moral decline, if any, is a result of "Christians" who support the GOP in droves, and the politicians who pander to them having lost their moral compass somewhere between Reagan and Trump.

Thanks Capitalism!
Any so called decline in American culture and morals can easily be traced to the free market's race to the bottom in pursuit of profits at any cost.

Yeah... because you elected the absolute pinnacle of "morality" to lead your party and be President of the United States.

Lets see...

A total of three wives. Likely cheated on #1 and #2 with #2 and #3, respectively. We do know he slept with a porn star while #3 was post-partum with his third child.

Good friends with Epstein. "Grab her by the -----". Liked to barge in on young women in their dressing rooms at the Mrs. America pageants. Publicly insults people who disagree with him, and even makes up insulting pet names for them.

Don't even want to think too hard on his creepy relationship with his daughter. Though, to be fair, it might be the relative LACK of father/daughter ---------- relationships these days that the GOP considers "moral decline".

Though, I did think it was striking during the Trump campaign when at one point his top two surrogates were Giuliani and Gingrich, that between them and Trump they had been married to NINE women (seven divorces under their belts) and who knows how many adulterous affairs they have had.

But sure, blame the gays. "Sanctity of marriage" and all that.

i don't think right or wrong is the way to frame the discussion about sexual identity and rights..but that's me.

I absolutely believe that the transgender issues over toilet use..pronoun designation..NO ONE who votes for trump, and many who voted for clinton believe bruce jenner is a woman.
I have absolutely zero animosity toward gay people but i notice it and it's been mentioned in many conversations i've been privy to in the last 5 years, that there's a huge amount of gay centric articles..life style pieces gay sex advice and many people won't say anything or be confrontational about it but they don't like it in their face.

rupaul..----- eye may be popular...but lots of folks think they're pervs and they vote

This fixation on homosexing is ruining our ability to rape young girls.

"They keep thrusting their gay agenda down our throats," Merrill said, "and there's only so much I can swallow. I've got to be rigid in response. I've got to be ready to fire back.

"This will be an all-male thing. Call me old-fashioned, but I find women are too soft in this arena. I prefer working with men -- strong, masculine men who are firm yet flexible and have an insatiable need to finish the job. When there's an event where I need my guys, I know I can count on them to come. We're hooking up this weekend at the YMCA."

""That's exactly what I'm talking about," he said. "What the national media chose to focus on is the fact that these young ladies' sexual orientation was more significant than what they accomplished on the field of play," which Merrill said "was to separate themselves from any other team like them in the history of the World Cup.""

EXACTLY right, but wrong conclusion. Most Reps want everyone to be treated fairly and not differently regardless of their choices. But too many Liberals are trying so hard to make sure people are treated differently in this country that it is ruining us our accepted social norms.

Now, the reason why Reps want everyone treated equally may be because they have prejudices and if someone is treated differently then that means white people don't get the same treatment as everyone else, and that makes them mad. There's rarely any proof of that coming from politicians but it is a possibility. However, that doesn't change the fact that they want everyone to be treated equally.

The only problem Liberals have is like what I posted yesterday; they want people treated differently based on the hardships the different groups of people endure. That's morally sound logic but it inherently invites prejudice and discrimination. Liberals just see it as acceptable discrimination. Where they go wrong is that the country has quickly realized their "acceptable discrimination" really just means "what their opinion is". If you don't agree with their opinions, then you are wrong and they will be quick to throw hate at you because you hold a different opinion. Both sides need to wake the f up and realize the true conclusion to all of this is that the hate both sides throw at each other over opinions is what is causing the moral degradation, not the characteristics each person is born with or the choices each person makes about how they want to live.
