A 14-year-old radio “host” – and please, we use that term loosely -- engaged in an on-air rant to say that homosexuality is not natural and that it’s a choice. The West Virginian-based Caiden Cowger is not quite an orator, but he does attempt a fire-and-brimstone style when saying, “It’s not mandatory. The person is not born that way, no matter what Lady Gaga says. It is a decision. It’s getting worse where I’m at.”

TMZ unearthed the footage, where Cowger is seated in an office-type setting, with his initials as a logo touting the phrase “The Truth for the Youth” behind him, says people are “turning into homosexuals” and calls it “sickening.” He says he had seen 30 people in his county “turn” gay and that he was friends with many as a child, when they weren’t gay.

Cowger says, “They were not homosexuals” and says that they pretty much woke up one day and thought, “I think I am going to be gay.”

He even goes as far as blaming President Obama for making people gay.

While West Virginia is often a state stigmatized by its stereotypes, sadly, resident Caiden Cowger does nothing to erase those pre-conceptions. He also sounds like he has a bit of a speech problem. But don’t make fun of him. He was born that way.
