From The Advocate: "Georgia Republican Candidate Compares Gay Teens to Pedophiles"


The Advocate reports that Republican candidate for Georgia Attorney General, Perry McGuire, has stated that allowing gay clubs to meet in schools is "much like allowing a pedophile club or a gambling club to meet at school."

They go on to quote him as saying, "Homosexual activist clubs in schools are detrimental to students and to the moral well-being of society."

Even a realist like me, who acknowledges the fact that we in Georgia still have a long ways to go in improving our tolerance for the LGBT community, finds this absolutely shocking.

I realize that our current Attorney General, Thurbert Baker, isn't amongst the community's favorites at the moment. But, if these quotes are true, people like Mr. McGuire (pictured above with our illustrious president) do not deserve to hold elected office in the year 2006. He must be defeated. All I can say is take a good look at the new face of ignorance, hate, and evil in state of Georgia.

On top of that, he's ugly as sin! Not that there's anything wrong with being ugly.......... just saying he's pissed in my cornflakes this morning!
