In an interview this week with the host of a conservative radio show, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) said the gay community wants to “do away with statutory rape laws so that adults will be able to freely prey on little children sexually.”
The interview on the “Faith & Liberty” show — which took place on Wednesday, according to the Huffington Post — covered a wide range of political topics as well as culture in the U.S., mostly focusing on gay marriage. When host Dave Garrison asked the congresswoman whether an “intolerance” exists for people who disagree with gay marriage, Bachmann agreed, saying that’s “exactly where we are now.”
She then slammed the LGBT community, saying their ultimate goal was “not to allow for diversity of opinion on this issue” but rather to “force everyone to not only agree with them, but also to finance their agenda.”
“They also believe they have the right, Dave, to determine on a daily basis what their agenda is. Today, the big push is on transgender, and so they’re continuing to push us down this road,” she said.
Bachmann predicted the gay community would push for “multiple” people in a marriage next, and after that, the elimination of sexual consent laws.
“They want to abolish age of consent laws, which means children would, we would do away with statutory rape laws so that adults will be able to freely prey on little children sexually,” Bachmann said. “That’s the deviance that we’re seeing embraced in our culture today.”
