Sandy Rios Calls LGBTQ Relationships A ‘Dangerous’ And ‘Sordid Business’

Anti-LGBT activist Sandy Rios of the American Family Association responded to LGBTQ Pride celebrations across the country on Monday by calling the lives of gay men the “most sordid business” and castigating church leaders who have accepted homosexuality because gay people are “really losing their opportunity to shake loose of it.”

Rios claimed that the true nature of LGBTQ relationships is “so misunderstood” due to the “cleaned-up,” positive representations of LGBTQ couples on “HGTV, as though they’re a married couple, the same as a heterosexual couple, and that is just not true.”

She then adamantly asserted that “sex between two men is not the same as sex between a man and a woman. You know, the process that God has created is a physical thing that physically completes one person with another, it is the way we are constructed, and anything other than that does not do that.”

Rios then struggled to find words for her disgust, fearing that she might expose children listening to her show to “things that they should never, ever, be thinking about.” However, she quickly justified her discussion, claiming that children are already forced “to think about it because it is the part and parcel as soon as they step foot into a public school. They hear about this, so they should hear it from us.”

Rios then described a story of a formerly “radical” pro-LGBTQ woman who “flipped 180-degrees” after seeing “the physical abuse of gay men to each other, in ways I can’t even describe, the sickening things that they did to one another. I saw the way they died, I saw the lifestyle. It is horrendous.”

“This whole business of the rainbow, and gay, and pride, is just a ruse for something that is so horrendous for the people involved. I have to communicate,” Rios said, “my heart goes out to men and women who are caught in the throes of this, who are really losing their opportunity to shake loose of it.”

“Some church leaders have really gone weak in the knees on this, and shame on them,” she said. “Because people are dying because we will not speak the truth.”
