Bobby Franklin Compares Homosexuals To Drug Dealers

Georgia: Bobby Franklin, a Republican state representative from Georgia, said this week that letting gays serve openly in the military was the "same thing" as allowing "unrepentant drug dealers" into its ranks.

"The Bible says it's a capital offense," Franklin said during a discussion about homosexuality and the December repeal of the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy. "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."
