State Senator to LGBTQ Teens: Gay Love Akin to Pedophilia, Bestiality

Wyoming Equality, the state’s LGBTQ rights group, has called for disciplinary action against state Sen. Lynn Hutchings, who likened homosexuality to pedophilia and bestiality in a conversation with students from a gay-straight alliance.

The remarks came February 1, on Wyoming Equality’s Gay-Straight Alliance Civics Day, when it takes students from GSAs to meet with officials in the Wyoming legislature and Supreme Court. Ten students from Central High School in Cheyenne, which is in Hutchings’s district, and their sponsor and teachers spoke with her about the Enhancing Quality Employment Act, according to a letter from Wyoming Equality, addressed to Senate President Drew Perkins and posted on the group’s website Friday.

Hutchings, a Republican, said she was unfamiliar with the act, which was then pending in the legislature but has since died for lack of action. When the group told her it would ban workplace discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity, she said, “If my sexual orientation was to have sex with all of the men in there and I had sex with all of the women in there and then they brought their children and I had sex with all of them and then brought their dogs in and I had sex with them, should I be protected for my sexual orientation?” the letter relates.

When the students tried to explain the bill, Hutchings repeatedly interrupted them, then tried to fist-bump them and embraced one of them, Wyoming Equality reports.

1. Pedophilia is not mentioned in the Bible, but ...

... gay sex and bestiality are both death penalty offences.

Which gives you some insight into where Lynn Hutchings is coming from.

Just as an aside, as a practical matter Jews eliminated all Levitical death penalties around 200 BC. They did not say the Biblical law was wrong, but that no court after the Babylonian exile had the authority to impose death penalties.

And there never were any sex police as such in ancient times.

So Lynn Hutchings is 2200 years behind the (supposedly less advanced) Jews.
