Republican Congressional Candidate Jody Hice Calls For Legislation Banning 'Discrimination' Against Anti-LGBT Christians: AUDIO

Jody hice

Jody Hice, the wingnut Republican nominee for an open House seat from Georgia, has called on Congress to ban the federal government from “discriminating" against anti-LGBT Christians, reports Right Wing Watch.

Hice’s outburst came last month following President Barack Obama’s executive order banning federally funded organizations from discrimination against LGBT employees.

Hice claimed that the executive order "is almost like a thumbing of the nose of the president at the U.S. Supreme Court, at our First Amendment, at our unalienable rights ... How else do you look at this but a thumbing of those nose of our administration at our First Amendment and our Supreme Court at the same time."

Hice called for a repeal of the executive order and for legislation prohibiting the government “from itself discriminating against any individual or any group or organization, whether nonprofit or for profit, it doesn't matter, to prevent the government from discriminating based on the beliefs about marriage and sexuality."

Earlier this year, Hice alleged the gay community has a secret plot to recruit and sodomize children

Anti-Gay, Anti-Islam Pastor Jody Hice Wins Georgia GOP Primary

Hice

We've mentioned Southern Baptist pastor Jody Hice once before, addressing his lunatic theory that gays as a community recruit and sodomize young children. Evidently the constituents in Georgia's 10th district not only don't have a problem with his lunacy but actually endorse it as Hice won the Republican primary, and will likely win the election this coming fall. 

If he goes on to replace his predecessor Paul Broun, Republican congressmen are going to have quite the time trying to salvage what little they can of the GOP's pretty thoroughly wrecked image once Hice starts going on about how Islam doesn't deserve First Amendment protections and it's ok for women to enter politics so long as their husbands gives them permission.


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."
