Michael Savage Blames Gays for Economic Crisis

October 3rd, 2008

The “Blame The Gays” game is getting pretty popular. Conservative radio talk show host Michael Savage is now the latest to blame the nation’s economic crisis on the gays:

During the October 1 broadcast of his nationally syndicated radio show, Michael Savage said: “[Y]ou may say, ‘Why should we care about homosexuals trying to destroy families through the mock marriage that they perform in order to mock God, the church, the family, children, the fetus, the DNA of the human species? Why should we care about it while we have a financial meltdown?’ Because the spiritual side of the downturn on Wall Street is directly related to the moral downturn in the United States of America.” Savage also said: “[T]he government has no right to force people to accept homosexual marriage. It is why the West is dying. It is why we’re melting down as a nation. It is why there is no — why we have almost negative childbirth rate except amongst illegal aliens.”
