7/13/2006 – On his blog as Chair of the Guilford County Republican Party, Marcus Kindley compared homosexuality to pedophilia.

Kindley stated, “In America today our churches have degraded their beliefs so much that the ordinary citizen sees no need to attend a worship service, because he sees and hears the same thing on Oprah and Dr. Phil everyday. We now say that homosexuality is ok. That it is natural. Yes it is as natural as pedophilia.”

Equality North Carolina calls on Kindley to apologize to the gay and lesbian community for his statement.
“As virtually every mainstream medical organization has stated, there is no connection between homosexuality and pedophilia,” said Ian Palmquist, Executive Director. “To compare loving relationships between adults of the same sex with the rape of innocent children is offensive and out of touch with science and the views of most North Carolinians.”

Ed Farthing, Development Director and a lifelong Republican, added “Comments like Kindley’s are not only hurtful to many fine and outstanding members of the gay and lesbian community, they are hurtful to the growth of the Republican Party and totally unChristian.”
