Georgia Not Safe For Gays…

9 Feb

According to Bobby Franklin (R-east Cobb), Marrietta, GA, if you are gay, a feminist, or not a Christian you need to be punished and there is no place for you in the state of Georgia.  I have to say it is bigots like Franklin that helped us decide to leave Georgia. Franklin was quoted:

“The Bible says it’s a capital offense,” Franklin said of homosexuality. “You want someone with unrepentant criminal behavior? And it’s not just that, neither should adulterers, neither should thieves, neither should a lot of things. The church is full of sinners, but we’re told in 1st Corinthians it rattled off the homosexual, the adulterer, the thief, the liar, and such were some of you, but you’ve been washed, you’ve been justified and so forth. It’s not what you were. You’re not punishing a thought. But do you want an unrepentant drug dealer in the military? Same thing.

I guess he missed the part about separation of Church and State.  I wonder if he burns a bull on the front lawn, as the odor pleases the lord? (Leviticus 4:11) Will he be selling his daughter? (Exodus 21). Yet another bigot getting history lessons from Michele Bachmann.

I have to say I get real tired of these good old white boys and feel bad for my family and friends that are not white, not Christian,  not heterosexual, and not hypocrites. I’m not sure what scares me more, crazy people like Franklin, or the people that vote for him. Click here to see the full article.

If you are not white, heterosexual, and Christian, you need to be scared of this man!

    Doesn’t he just look so pleased with himself?
    What an ignorant twit. I’m more scared of the people that voted for him. I do not understand the south, and what really saddens me, is that some gay people seem to accept their ‘hidden’
    Place in society. I guess they’ve given up. What is it, about the south then?

      I agree. I’m more fearful for all of the people that voted for him. The LGBT community has absolutely no legal protection in the State of Georgia.

    I wish I knew why my friends in Alabama put up with it. Selma sounds super scary. Am I wrong?

    Isn’t this the same thing they criticize the Muslims about? They complain about the Muslims trying to promote Islam around the world and executing people that commit adultery or talk bad about Allah. Sounds like the same thing these right wingers won’t to do…just under a different name.

      Yes, you are absolutely right. I don’t think these “christians” understand irony or hypocrisy.

    I’m speechless. That should say it all. 😉
