Oklahoma City Councilman Brian Walters Compares Gay Pride Parade to a Pedophile Parade and a Wife-Beater Parade

The Oklahoma City Council approved a gay pride parade last week by a vote of 8-1. The lone dissenter was Councilman Brian Walters.

Said Walters to the Journal Record: "The reason I voted no on that is that I'm a born-again Christian and don't believe in the homosexual lifestyle. 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. I would not vote yes on that either, [or] men who beat up their wives. Anything like that."

The OKC Pride parade takes place on June 27th.

  4. Wonder what his thoughts are on a sanctimonious bigot parade?

  5. He doesn't hate us, he just equates us with pediphiles and wife beaters.

  6. Which begs the question, of course, why doesn't he hate pedophiles and wife beaters? Decent people should.

  7. This knuckle-dragging neanderthal needs to be tossed out on his born-again @#$% at the next election. What party is he affiliated with?

  8. So Brian - what about all the other parades in OKC? I'm sure they have straight parades with straight people involved who have had sex before marriage. What about that "lifestyle choice?" Is he going to lecture all the frat boys of Oklahoma that they will burn in hell forever if they have sex before marriage?

    Thank you Brian for continuing to make Christians look more bigoted and retarded everyday.

  9. He's affiliated with the "Self-Loathing Closet Queen" Party.

  10. Bet if he wanted some parade for his born again church and he was denied he'd be claiming discrimination.

    It's funny, my faith doesn't approve of people like Brian Walters' lifestyle so I guess I should enact all sorts of laws against him and his ilk

  11. WHen is some gay lawyer going to court to have public officials like him that uses religion to make decision or get elected, to have him removed from office under Article 6 of the US Constitution? Let's fight them They are illegal too.

  12. He is mistaken. The pedophile and wife beater parade usually happens on March 17th.

  13. Is that a hickey on your redneck?

  14. Dear God.

  15. Fear and superstition (religion) is the enemy, keeping us all in the Middle Ages.

  16. Last time I checked this was a Democracy NOT A THEOCRACY, and as such, as a public Servant his role is act based on CIVIL LAW, NOT AS a MORALIST based on Faith beliefs!!

  17. He's actually the guy they talk about when they quip that the best part of him trickled down his mamma's leg during childbirth.

  18. Well, Oklahoma City is off my travel list. Let's hope its not Sarah in 2012 or we'll be hearing this sort of stuff from the White House.

  19. John: Don't punish the rest of us for this asshole. While far too many people in OK are inflicted with fundamentalist bullshit, we've got a lot of cool stuff here and a lot of great people (gay and straight) and dismissing all of us because of douchebags like Brian Walters hurts instead of helps.

  20. LOL Thank you Brian, the vote was 8-1, not 5-4 or whatever. In a room of 9 people in just about any state or city in the union there's at least one "born again" bigot. I'm actually surprised there was only one.
    I hate that these shitheads call themselves "born again", who in their "churches" turn a profound and difficult teaching of Jesus into basically the emotional bonding experience of finding a room full of people who will like you because you're as big a bigot, and as emotionally and spiritually stunted, as they are.

  21. Fuck you QJersey.

    Posted by: Sean | Jun 7, 2010 1:04:34 PM

  22. i sincerely wish that all born-agains would die-again. and i mean that with all seriousness. just fucking die. now.

    Posted by: casey | Jun 7, 2010 1:18:53 PM

  23. People like Walters give born-again Christians a bad name.

  24. He'd be thrilled to learn that NAMBLA used to march in gay rights parades thru the early 80's.

  25. There is no such thing as "born again." You are born only once, and you own every sin and misstep. To disavow your childhood in such a way is the height of arrogance !
