No word from Troy King. Seems strange that he would not make a public statement to deny the rumors, as homophobic as he has proven himself to be. "How could people be saying he is gay, and yet you say he is homophobic," you ask.
Troy King wrote homophobic articles while a student at the University of Alabama. He has made homophobic statements while attorney general.
I found some of his statements Here:
As a law student at the University of Alabama, King wrote frequent editorials for The Crimson White in condemnation of gays, affirmative action and abortion. In his editorials for the student newspaper, King called homosexuality the ‘downfall of society’ and said AIDS could be cleansed from America if “this nation’s current purveyors of perversion would refrain from committing sodomy.”
King also slammed the idea that gays and lesbians could provide loving, normal families for children, saying: “I often hear the argument that homosexuals who live together create a loving, caring family environment, perhaps an environment which is even superior to that which can be provided by a heterosexual couple. In this day of rampant decadence, many homosexuals would misled society into believe that three men, an armadillo and a house plant create a functional family.”
It is because of blatantly homophobic and untrue statements like those that I have no respect for the man.
Often men whose true desires are for other men, yet for a multitude of reasons feel they must hide those desires, put on the appearance of being virulently anti-gay as a front.
Then there is this: UGA Study .
I have referenced this study before, but basically what is says is that in some men those who go out of their way to exhibit anti-homosexual views are indeed suppressing their own sexuality. The study tells how the authors came to the conclusion, and it makes sense.
Some men who are deeply closeted practice risky behaviors, and some even have a desire to "get caught."
So, we have the attorney general, who formerly was John McCain's Alabama campaign chair, but now no longer has that position, at least the reference to such has been removed from the McCain web site, according to Fishbowl America. What does that mean? Is King's world shrinking?
Why have no Republicans of note said anything about this? *(I don't consider former lieutenant governors who pee in jugs to be of note, although I heard that Windom said King would not resign).
We are "Inquiring minds" and we want to know.
Here is what a commenter on Thomason Tracts says:
To be honest, I’ve been saying Troy was a closet homosexual for years. But that’s a far cry from being caught by his wife with his young aide.
I’ve always kinda thought Troy was in denial. In a perfect world, where he didn’t grow up hating himself for being gay, he’d be a balanced, open individual. But as it is, he’s a little troll.
By the way, his gayness is based solely on my personal gaydar which hasn’t been calibrated lately.
There are others on numerous other blogs whose gaydar has been set off by King, dating back to his college days and up to the present.
We will continue to follow the story.
