Rep. Steve King: Homosexuality is ‘self-professed behavior’

Rep. Steve King said Sunday that he regretted the Arizona governor’s veto on the state’s religious freedom bill, arguing that homosexuality is a “self-professed behavior” that can be willfully changed.

“You’re an individual entrepreneur with God-given rights that our founders defined in the Declaration of Independence,” the Iowa Republican said during an interview with WHO-TV, Right Wing Watch reported. “You should be able to make your own decisions with what you do in that private business.”

Mr. King argued that the Civil Rights Act of 1964 makes no mention of sexual orientation.

“And there’s nothing mentioned in there on self-professed behavior,” he said. “And that’s what they’re trying to perfect, is special rights for self-professed behavior. And I think it’s difficult for us to define a law that would protect self-professed behavior.”

When asked whether he thought being gay was a choice, Mr. King said he wasn’t sure.

    It is not a choice, why would anyone put themselves through all the ridicule, and name calling to be a Gay person if you could change it. I have been gay all my life, and if i could have changed it I would have years ago. I do not live a gay life style but the attraction is still there……

    Well finally a politician that is not afraid of the queers. He is correct in his statements. Homosexuals have been known to change. One Hollywood
    actress was a gay companion and she changed to heterosexual. I cannot think of her name right now, but she was a gay partner with a TV personality I believe. Anyway there are numerous people that have changed although the homosexuals deny this and fight tooth and nail to keep it from being known.

    Rep King is correct in saying that he feels that being gay is a choice, but he does not know it. I think that is true for all of us because as it stands not one study shows evidence that gays are born that way; however every study shows that choice is the most likely reason for being gay.

    Looks like the people of Iowa have a real winner on their hands. Congressman Steve King goes on TV and says that being homosexual is a “self-professed behavior”, a choice which the can “willfully change”. Then, later in the same interview, when asked if being gay is a choice, he says he’s not sure. Sounds like he’s perfected the art of simultaneously talking out of 2 different orifices.

    Maybe he should just STFU and deal with the issue that we all seem to agree is the Number One problem in America right now: J O B S.
