14-Year-Old Talk Show Host

Gays Choose Perversion

No Matter What Gaga Says

You gotta laugh just a little watching a 14-year-old radio talk show host blast homosexuality as a choice people make -- "no matter what Lady Gaga says."

Caiden Cowger says the homosexuality "problem" is out of control in his state of West Virginia. 30 kids in his county -- many of whom grew up with him -- have chosen to be gay.

Cowger says Obama and Biden are both personally responsible for turning people gay.

However you feel about the issue, the kid is doing West Virginia no favors -- he struggles with the English language during his rant, and for the most part loses the grammar war.

very few know who they are at that age. it takes some figuring out. and even though he must know EVERYTHING, that's something he doesn't seem to realize.

It'll be hilarious when this kid comes out later in life. Or is forced out when he's caught with a male prostitute.

This kid is realizing that people are tired of little rants like this based on some god - one of a MYRIAD who've been worshiped throughout time, and basing his whole judgmental mind around that. No proof whatsoever. And hell? Hell was added, yes added by Church leaders as a way to provoke fear and thereby gain control over masses. Unless one is gay they have no idea what it is like to be as such. It is no choice for actual gay persons. I cannot say about bisexuals because by definition there is a choice (?) Bottom line is mind your own damned business. How does this lil kid feel about rants like his being a factor in why teens take their own lives when they have to take a hard look at being true to themselves and how it's not easy because of morons like this kid judging everything and basically parroting some old school preacher? Never before have I seen such a pathetic wannabe. Grow up. But in the end mind your own self.

A video Caiden Cowger posted on YouTube of one of his programs entitled, "Obama is making kids gay" was just pulled down by them for being hate speech. Rhonda Mangus, the mother of bullied gay teen, Michael Mangus, called on Spreaker to similarly pull the plug on his radio program. We have heard her cry for help and responded accordingly by removing all of his audio content from Spreaker's distribution.

We hope this helps quell his hate-filled speech and also encourages those bullied that there is hope in stopping this abusive behavior.

A statement from the CEO follows.


Spreaker Pulls Down Hate Speech by Gay-Bashing Radio Host Caiden Cowger

Reaffirms its principle about free speech in the web community


San Francisco (-June 8, 2012-) Spreaker released the following statement today regarding their decision, along with YouTube’s, to pull down content from Caiden Cowger, a conservative radio host best-known for spewing anti-gay, hate speech.

Quote, attributable to Spreaker CEO, Francesco Baschieri:

“While we not only support free speech, we help it find its way to more people faster and easier with our service that is the audio equivalent of YouTube, but like them, we cannot and will not condone hate speech. Consequently, we have pulled down audio content from Caiden Cowgar, whose recent gay-bashing clearly crosses the line from free -- to hate -- speech.”

Spreaker, dubbed “Twitter for audio” by TechCrunch, is a mobile and web-based service that makes it easy to spread audio across social networks.

For the people who think being gay is a choice.... Do the straight people here choose to be straight ? Are they actually sexually attracted to the sam sex but choose to be in straight relationships regardless ? I imagine most people would answer no to those two questions. Sexuality isn't a choice you make whatever that sexuality may be.
