Anti-gay activist Ryan Sorba of California Young Republicans made a pit stop at Liberty University where he spoke at their recent “Awakening” conference. He told his audience of 40 to stop using the word “gay” and instead use “sodomy” to describe same-sex couples as a way to stomp the LGBT equality movement.
”Stop using the word ‘gay.’ Because, if we give them this term that is grounded in an identity we’re giving – we’re conceding that to the premise that it is an identity and the rest of the debate we’re on their ground — we’re on their terms. He who defines the terms controls the debate, and by extension, public opinion. What we need to do is state that this is same-sex attraction, or maybe the engage in same-sex intercourse, or sodomy — whatever word you’re comfortable using. ”
