Right-Wingers Pretty Sure Homosexuality Caused Amtrak Crash

Amtrak derail

The recent Amtrak crash in Philadelphia was a horrific tragedy with the death toll still rising. The cause of the accident is still under investigation, but it would seem the engineer of the train was traveling at over twice the permitted speed through an S curve, likely the cause for derailment.

Not letting an opportunity to bash homosexuality escape them, the anti-gay pundits over at WorldNetDaily were quick to point out that the engineer was gay, who in the past has been involved in gay activism, and this is probably the big reason why the train crashed. You know, because.

Another right-wing, anti-gay pundit, Sandy Rios, known for her work with the American Family Association, let people know on her radio show that she also suspect of the engineer’s sexual orientation and how it likely played a role in the crash.

The engineer, Brandon Bostian, is likely at fault unless technical errors are at play, but him being gay has nothing to do with what happened on that fateful evening in Philadelphia.

Rios, however, in her effort to prove gay people aren’t mentally stable enough to exist said:

“Now I am not saying, I am not inferring to those of you that are gay rights activists and like to monitor this show, I’m not inferring that this accident happened because he was gay, but I do think it’s an interesting part of the story and you can bet it would be edited out.”

To clarify, Rios doesn’t think being gay is the reason for the crash, BUT she thinks it’s the reason for the crash.

You know why the media hasn’t been talking about it, because it’s not any part of a reason why a train would crash. However, that fact escapes Rios and she continues to tell her audience that Bostian must’ve been, “going through some confusion that has to do with the very core of who they are.”

Who “they” are? Should we also then assume every lady with a radio show is a raging anti-gay bigot? Oh no, that’s just Rios. Everyone is their own person.

Rios then compares Bostian to the airplane pilot who recently purposefully crashed the plane he was flying into a mountain side, blaming the airplane crash on the alleged hormone therapy the pilot was receiving.

Needless to say, being gay has nothing to do with the ability and/or inability to engineer a train, and Sandy Rios is a raging anti-gay bigot, who I’m sure keeps Christ in her heart.
