Dave Agema, the Michigan Republican official who burst onto the stage by telling the world that gay people are “filthy” is at it again by comparing being gay to alcoholism on Tony Perkins’ radio show.
“If you really love someone, if you really were concerned about someone, if you saw your friend for example dying of alcoholism would you just stand quietly by and watch it happen?” Agema said. “Or would you speak up and say hey I want to help you. That’s what we should be doing.”
“What I’d like to have the homosexual community know is I don’t hate them,” he said. “As a matter of fact when Jesus caught a woman in the act of adultery when they brought her to him he said I don’t condemn you but go and sin no more. That ought to be the church’s goal here. We ought to be saying to these people, ‘Hey, we don’t agree with your lifestyle and we’ll help you get out of it, but we want you to know the facts of what’s going to happen to you if you stay in this lifestyle.'”
And if you saw some sniveling bigot making himself out to be an even bigger asshole than he already has proven to be, you’d stand aside and quietly let it happen.
