High profile American Republican congresswomen Michele Bachmann has outrageously claimed that gay people intend to change the law to be able to prey on children.
In an interview last week on the conservative radio show Faith & Liberty, Bachmann expressed her opposition to same-sex marriage and full LGBT equality in America, reports Right Wing Watch.
With no evidence whatsoever to justify her statement, she said that the gay community plans to “abolish age of consent laws, which means we will do away with statutory rape laws so that adults will be able to freely prey on little children sexually. That’s the deviance that we’re seeing embraced in our culture today.”
She warned that America was seeing “the rise of tyranny” through hate speech laws and that these are an “attempt to have government coerced, forced speech and behaviour that is being pushed by and advocated by the gay community.
“This is their ultimate goal – to not allow for diversity of opinion on these issues, they want force everyone to not only agree with them and to finance they agenda,” she insisted.
Bachmann further claimed that the gay community next intend to push to legalise polygamy and said that legalising same-sex marriage is a “radical experiment” that will have “profound consequences.”
Bachmann, who failed in her bid to become a presidential candidate in 2012, has championed constitutional amendments to ban same-sex marriage both federally and in individual states.
She has described homosexuality as a “sexual dysfunction,” “sexual identity disorders” and “personal enslavement”.
Thankfully, Bachmann announced last year that she will not seek re-election for her Congressional seat. Unfortunately, she intends to remain involved in politics.
