Alan Keyes, Former Obama Opponent, Compares Homosexuality To Incest, Bestiality And Pedophilia

Alan Keyes, the Republican and conservative who challenged Barack Obama for Illinois's Senate seat in 2004, compared homosexuality to incest, bestiality and pedophilia in a heated rant on Gordon Klingenschmitt's "Pray In Jesus Name" show.

"Only those things that are demonstrated to have a relationship with what is right from the point of view of the society, of human nature, and of the things that God requires of us as part of our responsibility to him, those things can be claimed as rights," Keyes said, Right Wing Watch first reported.

"A mother who loves her son can't have sexual relations with her son," he declared. "Well, that means you can't just follow your loving inclinations in order to engage in sexual activity with anybody you love because our laws strictly forbid that."

Unfortunately, it isn't Keyes' first time denouncing the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community. Earlier this year, he said that same-sex marriage was “the archetype of all crimes against humanity,” and that an “entire elite faction is committed” to that crime, Right Wing Watch also reported.

In April, he also argued that legalization of same-sex marriage would go against divine law, prompting the U.S. to become a Communist regime that would authorize “the murder of the masses," according to Right Wing Watch.
