Glenn Beck complains transgender bathrooms are part of a plot to normalize pedophilia.
Today on his radio program a distraught Glenn Beck claimed transgender bathrooms will lead to the normalization of pedophilia.
Reacting to the recent announcement by Hershey Park that its guests and employees are allowed to use the restrooms that match the gender with which they identify, Beck went on a rant on his radio show this morning, complaining that transgender bathrooms “are being jammed down our throat.”
(Question: Why is it that conservatives always worry about things being “jammed down our throat” when complaining about equal rights for LGBT people?)
On his program Beck declared:
If you don’t stand up now. I guarantee you the next thing that will be mainstreamed will be pedophilia.
Beck tried to distinguish between marriage equality and transgender-friendly bathrooms, insisting the push for transgender equality is “not normal,” while arguing marriage equality for lesbians and gay men was inevitable.
Transgender bathrooms have come out of nowhere, and are being jammed down our throat. I guarantee you, I guarantee you the next stop on this train is pedophilia. I guarantee it. They will normalize pedophilia.
Beck is known for making wild and inaccurate claims. Earlier this year Beck claimed God Killed Scalia for Ted Cruz, arguing that God had to kill Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia to promote the presidential candidacy of Ted Cruz.
Yet despite God’s efforts, and Scalia’s sacrifice, Cruz lost. Go figure.
Beck is not the only religious extremist to panic at the thought of transgender-friendly bathrooms. Currently there is a transgender bathroom hysteria sweeping the nation. Yet the truth is, church is more dangerous for children than a transgender-friendly bathroom.
