President Of Texas Conservative Group Compares Homosexuals To Murderers

President of the Conservative Republicans of Texas, Steven Hotze, stood before the Texas House Committee regarding the State Affairs for support of the House Bill 4105.

If successful, the bill would defund any marriage licenses for same-sex couples and would stop the state from recognizeing a gay marriage in any possible way.

During his time testifying, Hotze engaged with Representative Sylvester Turner regarding the fact that he believes officials in Texas should only be enforcing the laws that are considered morally right.

In a statement from Hotze, he said: "If (the U.S. Supreme Court) were to come out ruling that marriage between two individuals is legal, I would say let’s do everything we can to stop it just like we stopped abortion. Cut off funding from it, that’s all I’m saying. We'd do everything within in our power to legally stop it because we don't believe this is right." Turner, however, countered this statement, saying that he wanted the ability to treat everyone in a fair manner and without regard to the way they have chosen to live their lives.

Hotze went on to compare homosexuals to adulterers and murderers; while you can love them, you cannot respect what they are doing or how they are living their lives. However, Turner held strong in his position, reiterating that people should be respected and never demeaned. Hotze finally stated “Well, then we can get rid of all the laws that we have against people that do immoral acts, like murder and rape and embezzling. Cause you want to make them feel good, don’t you? You don’t want to make them feel bad about their actions, they might be born that way. That's your argument."
