ST. PAUL – A Minnesota legislator doesn’t think very highly of the gay and lesbian lifestyle.
Striking back at legislation introduced in the Minnesota Legislature this week for marriage equality, state Minnesota Rep. Glenn Gruenhagen said “It’s an unhealthy, sexual addiction.”
According to a report in the Minneapolis Star Tribune, Gruenhagen, a Republican, said he has a friend who ran a sexual addiction clinic. “He helped many homosexuals and other people come out of the lifestyle.”
“When we talk about gay marriage, we are not talking about an immutable characteristic, like the color of your skin.” Gruenhagen said. Referencing a decade- old genome study, he added: “There is no gay gene. The concept that there is a gay gene is an unscientific lie.”
