GOP mayor candidate says school turned his daughter bi & gays abuse children in unhinged rant [View all]

Source: LGBTQ Nation

A Republican mayoral candidate went on a long, hateful tirade on Facebook accusing LGBTQ people of being child molesters and claiming that he pulled his daughter out of school because “13 out of [his daughter’s] 16 friends” are “lesbian or bisexual.”

Tim Rowbottom calls himself “an entrepreneur who is a man of the people and represents the taxpayers of the City of Harrisburg” and he is the only Republican registered for the Harrisburg, Pennsylvania mayor election in November. And he’s getting condemnation for his extreme statements about LGBTQ people.

In a Facebook post that he said was an “Official Press Release!” Rowbottom said that it is time to “make clear my views concerning a large population that occupies Harrisburg, the LGBT,” saying that it’s “not my intention to degrade or attack them in any way” before doing just that.

“I believe in creation and that anything else besides what we were created for is not something we should promote,” he wrote.

This is the type of insanity the LBGT community faces day in and day out. People are gunned down by the police and each other but Republicans have decided that gun control is not as important as making sure queer people aren't allowed to enjoy "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."

Also, do NOT add insult to injury in regards to this story by implying Rowbottom is a "secret gay". JUST DON'T DO IT!

Homophobia and Transphobia are real and they kill!

Systemic heterosexism and homophobia is REAL!
