Caiden Cowger, Conservative Teen Radio Host delivers anti-gay rhetoric speech

Caiden Cowger

Meet your enemy! A West Virginia-based teen radio host is making waves after proclaiming that President Obama “is making kids gay” in a recent episode.

Fourteen-year-old Caiden Cowgirl, I mean Caiden Cowger, who hosts the twice-weekly “Caiden Cowger Show,” made his anti-gay proclamations in a recent broadcast, video of which was uploaded to his YouTube channel on May 26. “Homosexuality is a belief,” Cowger, who has previously interviewed former GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain, declares. “The person is not born that way, no matter what Lady Gaga says…it is a decision.”

Homosexuality is of course not a belief.  No one chooses to be gay.  No one chooses a life that would permanently ostracize them by dweebs like Caiden Cowger.

After confessing that he was once friends with some kids who have since come out as gay, he notes, “They were not homosexuals [then]…they just decided all of a sudden, ‘I think I’m going to be gay,'” before he eventually concludes, “I’m going to tell you this, guys: President Obama…Vice President Biden…is making kids gay!”

Cowger, who is identified by The New Civil Rights Movement as a Pentecostal Christian, slams homosexuality as “a perverted belief, it’s immoral and not natural” before noting, “I’m not for bullying homosexuals, I believe that it’s wrong. But when you’re trying to teach them the word of God and they consider that bullying…I find that a big problem, not being allowed to convert other people to my religion.”

On his Facebook page, Cowger cites Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck as his influences, but professes, “I make up my own mind. People don’t do that for me. I can make deside [sic] my own beliefs.”  That’s also not the case.  Caiden Cowger does not think for himself.  He spews out hateful rhetoric that is spit out by those around him.  He’s a follower, not a leader.

This isn’t the first time Cowger has slammed the Obama administration. Noting that June is “no longer one of [his] favorite months” on his website, he adds, “I want STRAIGHT PRIDE MONTH! I mean, fair is fair here!”  He’s also an idiot because there is no need for Straight Pride Month.  Straight people are not bothered and condemned the way Gays are.  The tables need to be turned so we can start harassing and bothering people like Caiden Cowger, then he can have his little straight pride month.

Conservative Blogger, Dana Loesch, goes on a rampage against others for not defending this teen that delivered hate speech towards an entire group.  The reason she goes on a rampage is because she sides with him.  If the teen had attacked her and her ways or her Tea Party then she’d have a field day with that.  All people are asking is for a little respect.  The reason they attacked the kid, deservedly so, is because he’s spewing hate.

Fiona Apple writes to a young gay teen back in 2000

A 16 year old, Bill Magee, wrote to singer, Fiona Apple, back in 2000 after she performed a concert.  The letter he slipped her was a request to write a few sentences of support for his school’s Gay Straight Alliance.   Jezebel.com recently got wind of the letter that Fiona Apple later sent him back.

Hello Bill,

I got your letter a few days ago, but this is the first chance I’ve had to sit down and write (it’s my day off)

Of course, I’d love to help – sign me up. As far as a few sentences go, here’s what I’ve got – I hope it’s OK:

It’s hard to conjure up some new profound way of commenting on this issue – I’m so tired of it being an issue at all, and I suppose I’m lucky, because I see the truth so clearly. All I know I want my friends to be good people, and when my friends fall in love, I want them to fall in love with other good people. How can you go wrong with two people in love? If a good boy loves a good girl, good. If a good boy loves another good boy, good. And if a good girl loves the goodness in good boys and good girls, then all you have is more goodness, and goodness has nothing to do with sexual orientation. A person who loves is a righteous person, and if someone has the ability and desire to show love another – to someone willing to receive it, then for goodness’ sake, let them do it. Hate has no place in the equation; there is no function for it to perform. Love is love, and there will never be too much.

-Fiona Apple
