Republican candidate for Georgia attorney general Perry McGuire has said that allowing gay clubs to meet in schools is "much like allowing a pedophile club."

In an interview with the Christian news service Agape Press, Republican candidate for Georgia attorney general Perry McGuire said that allowing gay clubs to meet in schools is "much like allowing a pedophile club or a gambling club to meet at school." McGuire was responding to a question about a recent federal court ruling allowing a gay-straight alliance to meet at White County High School in Georgia.

In that ruling U.S. district court judge William C. O'Kelley said that the school had violated the Federal Equal Access Act by barring the student group, called PRIDE, from meeting on campus while allowing other noncurricular clubs to do so.

In the interview McGuire described the GSA as a "gay sex" club. "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 continued. (The Advocate)
