Some quotes from Dr. Laura:
On AIDS funding
"I'm making an announcement: Not one penny will I give to AIDS anything as long as [public sex is allowed in gay bathhouses]. Not cent one. It's a preventable disease. If you don't want to prevent it, I don't want to pay for it."
On the Vermont same-sex partners rights decision
"If two men can be sanctified in this country as marriage, then what is your logical or justifiable reason to exclude adult incest? A man and a woman - consensual, 25 years old, who are brother and sister - should not be discriminated against because they have a genetic relationship."
On President Clinton's gay pride proclamation
"He wants us to celebrate that it is a sad state of affairs, in my opinion - that there are some people who cannot or will not commune with members of the opposite sex in an intimate way and be married and make children in families. That men have to have sex with men is not something to celebrate. It's a sadness."
On gay parenting
"You're not going to fight to make sure that homosexuals and lesbians can't adopt children from birth who can go to heterosexual families, so [the children] will be intentionally robbed of a father or a mother on purpose in spite of all the psychological and sociological literature? You're going to stand by and let this happen, just go to work and put gas in your car today? Don't you care about children?"
On the proposal to stop gay discrimination in California public schools
"The concern of a lot of these bills is that they take sexual, deviant behavior into schools from kindergarten up and say it's normal and equivalent to heterosexual [behavior], which sort of undermines the basic foundation of civilization."
On equal rights for gays
"Rights? For sexual deviants, sexual behavior, there are now rights? That's what I'm worried about with the pedophilia and the bestiality and the sadomasochism and the cross-dressing. Is this all going to be rights too? Why does deviant sexual behavior get rights?"
Some of Dr. Laura's listeners have taken it upon themselves to weigh in. This is what they've emailed WWW.STOPDRLAURA.COM, verbatim. Much of what they have to say is quite offensive, and should not be read by children.

"Society needs to stop being apathetic to fags and queers. We support Dr. Laura in her effort to enlighten listeners everywhere. If only she would talk about the detrimental effects niggers have on this earth, I would probably have a poster of her on my wall! Keep up the good work! I applaud and commend someone with such power for finally speaking the truth." - Jason in Columbus, Ohio
"Thanks for the links to the media concerning Dr. Laura. I told them that I support her and the first ammendment. AIDS is a quick cure for fags and dikes."
"You homo's are an abomination and I hope you all get AIDS and die a long painful death. Here's a battle cry for you - 'Death to Fags'"
"You people are not biological errors but people who chose a deadly life style. Your lifestyle choice causes people to dislike you. Just go straight and be normal and you will find most people will not treat you like the infected vermin you are now."
"[Entitled: Fuck off you freaks] You homo's are an abomination and I hope you all get AIDS and die a long painful death."
"STICK YOU HEAD UP YOUR BUTT,YOU STICK EVERYTHING ELSE UP THERE. THANKS FOR KILLING A MILLION PEOPLE WITH AIDS. DR. LAURA IS LOVED BY OVER 20,000,000 LISTENERS. ON TELEVISION IT WILL BE MUCH MORE. YOUR ALL COWARDS WHO ARE AFRAID OF THE TRUTH BEING SPREAD ABOUT YOU CREEPY SICK DOGS. DR. LAURA'S LISTENERS WILL RAISE UP AGAINST YOU DOGS FOR TRYING TO "STOP HER FREE SPEECH". DO YOU LOVE OR HATE CHILD MOLESTERS? WELL YOU PERVERTS ARE THE SAME AS THE CHILD MOLESTERS. IT IS TIME EVERYONE KNOWS BEING GAY IS AGAINST THE AMERICAN AS WELL AS GOD'S LAW. THEN YOU PERVERTS WILL BE PUT WERE YOU BELONG,IN PRISON FOR LIFE."
"DR. LAURA IS ABSOLUTELY CORRECT IN HER STAND FOR MORALS. IT WILL BE A SAD DAY WHEN ANAL SEX OVERRULES FAMILY VALUES. GOD CREATED ADAM AND EVE NOT ADAM AND STEVE ! NOW, GO DO THE RIGHT THING!"
"What a thrill that all you faggots are REALLY PISSED over how the MAJORITY of AMERICAN feel about your disgusting lifestyle. You idiots can't imagine how much your 'advertising' is boosting her (already huge) media ratings. If I were you, I'd be focusing on the 'next miracle AIDS cocktail' (ha-ha-ha), instead of someone who's kicking your ass in the national media."
"I AM A PERSON WHO USE TO BELIEVE TO LET PEOPLE DO THEIR OWN THING. BUT EVEN THEN TWO PEOPLE OF THE SAME SEX TOGETHER IN PLACE OF ONE FROM THE OTHER SEX MADE ME VOMIT JUST TO HEAR ABOUT IT. A SICKNESS JUST AS A CHILD MOLESTER IS. NO DIFFERENCE AS FAR AS THE MENTAL ILLNESS. WHICH IT IS. THE ESTIMATE IS LESS THAN 10% CLAIM TO HAVE THIS SICKNESS. IT IS PERVERTED NO QUESTION. THE CHILD MOLESTER IS AROUND 10% AS WELL AS HAVING WORKED WITH TROUBLED TEENAGERS WHO HAVE MOLESTED LITTLE 5-13 YR OLD CHILDREN UP TO 50 TIMES IN SOME CASES,AND KNOWING SOME PERVERTED ADULTS (CHILD MOLESTERS AND GAYS).
I SPEAK FROM FIRST HAND KNOWLEDGE THAT MANY OF THESE CHILD MOLESTER TEENAGERS LATER SAID THEY WERE GAY. ONE EVEN SAID THAT TO BE BRANDED A CHILD MOLESTER IS A LIFE TIME SENTENCE BECAUSE SOCIETY SAYS THEY CAN'T BE CURED. SO CLAIMING THE PERVERTED GAY LIFE GIVES THEM RIGHTS THEY SHOULD NEVER HAVE. IT'S NO SECRET THIS IS COMMON. SO TO GIVE PERVERTED PEOPLE WHO TITLE THEMSELVES AS GAY,RIGHTS IS GIVING CHILD MOLESTERS RIGHTS.
THERE REALLY IS A DIRECT STRONG UNBREAKABLE TIE BETWEEN PEOPLE WHO ARE CHILD MOLESTERS AND PERVERTED SICK PEOPLE WHO HAVE THE MENTAL ILLNESS OF CLAIMING TO BE GAY. LIKE IT OR NOT IT IS THE TRUTH. DR LAURA,GO GIRL GO. I LOVE YOU AND YOUR SHOW. DON'T LET A FEW PEOPLE WITH MENTAL ILLNESS BOTHER YOU IN ANY WAY. MOST AMERICANS CAN'T STAND THESE PEOPLE. WE DON'T NEED THESE 10% IN AMERICA."
"Dr, Laura is Completely correct in what she does. The Homosexual agenda will not be allowed to succeed. Polling Hollywood's LIBERAL establishment does not provide an accurate view of how most view FAGGOTS & DYKES."
"There are MILLIONS of US out here who agree with with DR. LAURA---your mouths are bigger than your numbers!!!(Gess that comes in handy, eh?) Is it true that you are 1 percent of the population/-hmmmmmmm!!!! Is it true that you are perverts? Bein' a plain ol' citizen, I ain't to well-informed about exactly wot you fellers do to make yourselves feel like hoomans(heheh)"
