North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson has doubled down on comments where he called members of the LGBT community “filth” despite calls for him to resign.
“There’s no reason anybody anywhere in America should be telling any child about transgenderism, homosexuality, any of that filth,” Robinson told an audience in June at the Asbury Baptist church. “And yes, I called it filth. And if you don’t like it that I called it filth, come see me and I’ll explain it to you.”
Franklin Graham totally agrees with him and praised him for standing up to the “woke cancel culture.”
“The Lt. Governor said the threats and outcry are part of a strategy of intimidation to try to get people to not speak out about their own beliefs on these topics, and he is right. Thank you Mark Robinson for having the guts to stand up and tell the truth. God bless you!”
Graham on Facebook added, “Lt. Gov. Robinson said, ‘To me, it is against the tenets of my religion. But we do not live in a theocracy, and I do not have the right to tell anyone what they practice in their home.’ Teaching about those issues in public schools, however, ‘is absolutely off limits,’ he said. He added, ‘Those are adult topics that should stay in an adult place. They have no business around children. Homosexuality is not a culture. Homosexuality is a sexual preference, and sexual preferences, I believe, do not need to be discussed in our schools.’ I totally agree.”
Robinson, by the way, is an NRA board member who has filed for bankruptcy three times and “has been taken to court a few times over unpaid debts, and has been the subject of numerous IRS liens for failing to pay thousands of dollars in taxes,” which he says have been “taken care of.”
