Georgia State Rep.- "Homosexuality is a Capital Offense"

Georgia Republican State Representative, Bobby Franklin in an interview with The Marietta Daily Journal:

On the subject of the President, Franklin said he opposes Obama's push to allow gays to serve in the military.

"The Bible says it's a capital offense," Franklin said of homosexuality. "You want someone with unrepentant criminal behavior? And it's not just that, neither should adulterers, neither should thieves, neither should a lot of things. The church is full of sinners, but we're told in 1st Corinthians it rattled off the homosexual, the adulterer, the thief, the liar, and such were some of you, but you've been washed, you've been justified and so forth. It's not what you were. You're not punishing a thought. But do you want an unrepentant drug dealer in the military? Same thing."

Franklin lives in Forsyth, one of the counties with the least black population in the South. Up until 1987, not a single black person lived there.
