Republican official: If we accept homosexuality, it’s OK for men to sleep with little boys
A former Republican official stunned a TV audience this week – by claiming that if gay politicians are accepted, paedophiles should be too.
Kirk Humphreys, the former Mayor of Oklahoma City, made the shocking claim during a discussion on local TV station KFOR.
In the segment Humphreys clashed with Democratic Representative Emily Virgin, who had been discussing allegations of sexual assault by Senator Al Franken.
Responding to her concerns, Humphreys invoked Barney Frank – the first openly gay representative in US history.
Frank has not been accused of any sexual impropriety, but Humphreys suggested he was “morally wrong” for being gay.
Challenging Rep. Virgin, he said: “Let me get this straight… you’re asserting that there’s a right and wrong, and people’s personal behaviours matter in their public standing.
“And yet you defend Barney Frank. Is homosexuality right or wrong?”
When Rep. Virgin responded that she doesn’t think homosexuality is wrong, Humphreys cut in: “Well I do.”
He added: “It’s not relative. There’s a right and wrong, you just said it.
