Eric Porterfield, a member of the West Virginia legislature, says that gay rights activists are just like the KKK and terrorists. Oh, and if he found out his son was gay, he would try to drown him. Hey, that’s what his god did to virtually the entire human race, right?
“The LGBTQ is a modern-day version of the Ku Klux Klan, without wearing hoods with their antics of hate,” Porterfield told a reporter with the Charleston Gazette-Mail on Friday.
He reportedly used the slur “faggot” in a committee meeting on Wednesday amid discussions over a proposed amendment that would restrict anti-discrimination protections for LGBTQ people…
Porterfield, responding to backlash against his comments on Saturday, repeated his views to Bluefield station WVVA, adding that if his young son or daughter came out to him as gay, he would “see if she can swim … then I’d see if he can swim.”
I’d say the state needs to step in and take his children away from him. That is a direct threat to drown them if they turn out to be gay. Then they need to impeach him immediately.
