We’ve seen plenty of pro-and anti-gay sentiment floating around the interwebs since Barack Obama declared his support for same-sex marriage a few days ago. While both sides have their over-the-top debaters and arguments, one woman from Nebraska has earned international attention for a graphic speech she made at a city council hearing. Click here to listen (but not while at work).
The woman, Jane Skrovota, gave her speech at a hearing that was reviewing a LGBTQ protection ordinance. And, in case you didn’t watch the whole speech, here are a few lines that are attracting attention:
A huge percent of gay men in school grounds molest boys, partly because they don’t have AIDS yet…”
“Hillary Clinton’s roommate four years in college was a gay woman. To avoid going gay like Clinton did, college students need single rooms and single gender dorms… A college woman is seduced with illegal Rohypnol to go gay.”
“Jesus was kissed by Judas, a homo, who tried to sabotage Jesus’ kind ideas. Do you choose Jesus, a celibate, or Judas, a homo? You have to choose!”
It seems that most people’s reactions to the video mirror those of the man sitting behind Jane. [via Gawker]
What do you think of Skrovota’s speech?
