Georgia GOP Candidate Says Gays Plot to Sodomize Children: VIDEO

JodyHiceDebate

Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA)—a man whose beliefs are close to the pinnacle of right-wing lunacy—is stepping down to run for the Senate, leaving a large set of clown shoes to fill in Georgia's 10th Congressional district. And it looks like those shoes might be filled by even bigger feet than Broun's. Southern Baptist pastor and radio show host Jody Hice, who has an extensive history of anti-progressive views, is currently in the lead after one round of voting in the district. 

Tim Murphy, writing in Mother Jones, lays out in great detail just how extreme Hice's beliefs are:

[Hice] alleges the gay community has a secret plot to recruit and sodomize children. In It's Now or Never: A Call to Reclaim America, Hice also asserts that supporters of abortion rights are worse than Hitler and compares gay relationships to bestiality and incest. He proposes that Muslims be stripped of their First Amendment rights.

...

With his book, Hice checks virtually every box of the social conservative job application. Referring to the arrest of anti-gay demonstrators in Elmira, New York, Hice likes local law enforcement to "the Gestapo." And this is part of a nationwide assault: "Evidently there are many who believe a 'Gestapo-like' presence is needed by the government in order to corral and keep under control, all these 'dangerous' Christians."

Hice claims homosexuality causes shorter life spans and depression, and he insists same-sex couples cannot raise healthy children. He writes, "Some ask the question, 'How does same-sex 'marriage' threaten your marriage?'," he writes. "The answer is similar to asking, 'How does a trashy neighborhood affect you?' It might not affect you at all on a personal level. But, we are not talking about 'a' same-sex marriage. We are talking about an effort to redefine marriage, and that would have drastic results and irreversible consequences!"

Murphy reports that Hice has a "good chance of being elected to Congress."
