Another GOP gay/pedophile comparison

Gosh… how stupid are these people? Really? Please somebody help me understand.

There is NO CONNECTION between being gay and being a pedophile.

It seems as though the Gay Objectors’ Party (GOP) candidate for Attorney General of Georgia has been sucked into the same ignorant and prejudiced rhetoric as dear old Marcus Kindley.

According to an article from News, GOP Attorney General candidate Perry McGuire said that allowing a gay-straight alliance in a high school is “much like allowing a pedophile club or a gambling club to meet at school.”

According to the article:

McGuire made the remark to the Agape Press, a Christian news service. He was responding to a question about a court ruling involving a Georgia school sued by gay students.

A federal judge ruled last month that White County High School must allow students in the gay-straight alliance club to meet on campus. (story)

U-S District Court Judge William C. O’Kelley said that the school cannot deny the GSA, called P.R.I.D.E., equal access or a fair opportunity to conduct meetings on school premises during noninstructional time.

O’Kelley said that school officials had violated the Federal Equal Access Act by barring the group from meeting on campus, while allowing other non-curricular clubs to do so.

McGuire, who would become Georgia’s top law enforcement officer if elected disagrees with Judge O’Kelley’s reasoning.

“I think the problem here, and I think where the court substantially erred, is that the intent of the Act was never to allow organizations that advocate illegal activity [to have campus access],” he told Agape Press. “And in Georgia, sex between minors is illegal; statutory rape laws apply.”

“Homosexual activist clubs in schools are detrimental to students and to the moral well-being of society,” he said.

The ignorance and prejudice of some folks in this world never fails to amaze me.
