But now, he has gone full Captain Queeg. For the uninitiated, Captain Queeg was a character from the book and motion picture The Caine Mutiny. He was the captain of a submarine who, when faced with the pressures of war, became completely unstable and was reduced to rambling paranoid theories about locks and strawberries.
McCullough has done Captain Queeg one better. When confronted with being held accountable for statements he has made against the lgbtq community, his conspiracy theories involve Satan and murder:
I got to tell you, when you get targeted by the Enemy, and I mean the Evil One, I don’t mean human beings but I mean by His forces, it can be rather earthshaking and then it can be rather deliberatively motivating. And so I would ask friends as you have just heard, I just told you about this list that GLAAD has put out, Tim Wildmon, Bryan Fischer, both on the list, Kevin McCullough is on the list, Tony Perkins is on the list, David Barton, brother Don [Wildmon] is also listed, Gary Bauer, Tony Perkins, Jim Daly, the head of Focus on the Family, all on this list, about thirty people that have been targeted by the most radical of activists that are seeking to basically blackball our voice from being allowed to be put into the public arena.
GLAAD doesn’t want McCullough dead. Right now he is the organization’s best justification of its project.
His statements speak to the point that GLAAD is trying to make – if McCullough is ever interviewed by the mainstream media, he is not going to repeat that paranoid theory. He is going to make his homophobia sound reasonable and religious-based.
And he is not the only anti-pundit playing this game.
But that paranoid ramble, that sheer lunacy in regards to the lgbtq community is what he really thinks. And the question is just how many of those anti-gay pundits are disguising such nauseating, paranoid homophobia behind religious beliefs.
That’s the question the media needs to ask.
