OK City Pol Likens Gays to Pedophiles

OK City Pol Likens Gays to Pedophiles


One of Oklahoma City's council members voted against issuing a special event permit for the upcoming gay pride celebration because it runs counter to his Christian beliefs.

"I don't want my vote to be construed as support, because I really don't support that, the same way that I wouldn't support a group of, say, pedophiles who wanted to assemble," council member Brian Walters said, according to Oklahoma City's Journal Record. "I would not vote yes on that either, [or] men who beat up their wives. Anything like that."

Walters was the only council member to vote against the permit.

Oklahoma City Pride is scheduled for June 25-27.
