U.S. House hopeful says gays secretly plotting ‘to recruit and sodomize children’

One of two Georgia Republicans who will face off in a run-off election in July for the GOP nomination in the 10th Congressional District is minister and talk-radio host Jody Hice, who believes that gay people have “a secret plot to recruit and sodomize children.’

Mother Jones reports that in a 2012 book — “In It’s Now or Never: A Call to Reclaim America” — Hice compares gay relationships to bestiality and incest, alleges the gay community wants to recruit and sodomize childrenand that that supporters of abortion rights are worse than Hitler. He also proposes that Muslims be stripped of their First Amendment rights.

In his book, Hice claims that homosexuality results in shorter life spans and depression, and he insists same-sex couples cannot raise healthy children:

“Some ask the question, ‘How does same-sex ‘marriage’ threaten your marriage?’,” he writes. “The answer is similar to asking, ‘How does a trashy neighborhood affect you?’ It might not affect you at all on a personal level. But, we are not talking about ‘a’ same-sex marriage. We are talking about an effort to redefine marriage, and that would have drastic results and irreversible consequences!

[...]

“People love all kinds of other people and things, but that does not grant permission for marriage. It is illegal to marry a child or a sibling. It is illegal to marry a pet, which many people love dearly.”

Hice claims that Christians who speak out against the evils of homosexuality are persecuted — and as a result of gay manipulation, “the nation’s entire system of justice is being destroyed.”

At one point in his book, Hice quotes at length from a 1987 column by gay author Michael Swift, to suggest that gay people prey on children:

“We shall sodomize your sons, emblems of your feeble masculinity, of your shallow dreams and vulgar lies. We shall seduce them in your schools, in your dormitories, in your gymnasiums, in your locker rooms, in your sports arenas, in your seminaries, in your youth groups, in your movie theater bathrooms, in your army bunkhouses, in your truck stops, in your all male clubs, in your houses of Congress, wherever men are with men together. Your sons shall become our minions and do our bidding. They will be recast in our image. They will come to crave and adore us.”

Hice calls the passage “shocking words by Michael Swift” that have been considered “part of the ‘gay manifesto’ by many, and reveal the radical agenda that is currently threatening our nation.”

But what Hice omitted was the first sentence of Swift’s column, which noted that the entire essay was satirical.

Last week, Hice clinched a spot in the runoff to replace U.S. Rep. Paul Broun (R-Ga.), who is seeking a seat in the U.S. Senate. In a district that gave 62 percent of the vote to Mitt Romney two years ago, Hice, the leading vote-getter in the first round of balloting, stands a good chance of being elected to Congress.
