The chair of
Guilford County, N.C's Republican Party is refusing
to back down from comments he made linking
homosexuality with pedophilia. In his official GOP
blog, "The Chairman's Corner," Marcus Kindley
decried the degrading of religion in American society: "We
now say that homosexuality is OK. That it is natural.
Yes, it is as natural as pedophilia," he wrote.
Kindley refused a demand to apologize from the
Carolina Advocacy Coalition and told a radio
interviewer Thursday that homosexuality is a lifestyle
choice like choosing to be overweight. His views are not
that different from the GOP's platform, which states,
"We believe homosexual behavior is not normal and
should not be taught as an acceptable 'alternative'
lifestyle either in public education or in public
policy." (Sirius OutQ News)
