Diane Gramley

-- Head of the American Family Association of Pennsylvania

 

Facts

-- Directly compares homosexuality to "lying, cheating, stealing, murder"

-- Said of a Gay Straight Alliance at a local high school: "Promoting a ‘smoking club’ would be safer than promoting a ‘homosexual club,” " 

-- When local amusement part held a Pride event, Gramley asked: “What group will Knoebels Grove have at their park next year – the North American Man Boy Love Association or Playboy Bunnies?  Their family-friendly reputation is tainted when they promote the homosexual lifestyle."

-- On many occasions, has wrongly asserted that there are as many as "36 known sexual orientations from bestiality to pedophilia." But in truth, these other practices are scientifically recognized as "paraphilias," not sexual orientations.

-- Attempted to connect Jerry Sandusky sex abuse scandal to homosexuality: "Through all this we cannot ignore the fact that Jerry Sandusky's victims were all young boys. We can't ignore the homosexual aspect of this...And through Graham Spanier's tenure as president, he has brought more and more homosexual-oriented programming and events to the campus than ever before."

-- Opposed a historical marker this way: "[T]he debate on homosexuality has nothing to do with civil rights, but rather [to do with] forcing the acceptance of abhorrent sexual behavior on all America."..."To take one of our most cherished historical buildings and desecrate it in such a manner is unthinkable,"..."and not just Pennsylvanians, but all Americans should be outraged."

-- Wrongly asserts it to be "fact" that no one is born gay; says it is dangerous to tell kids that being gay is okay

-- Responded to Supreme Court's striking down of sodomy laws by connecting homosexuality to incest, prostitution, etc: "Which are next to be struck down:  prostitution, bigamy, incest?  What further attack will the courts have on American's families and values?"

-- Claims sexual orientation protections will lead to protections for pedophiles: “Children are currently under assault by homosexual activists as they infiltrate the schools with their ‘gay is okay’ message; now pedophiles want to be given a green light by the psychological community to have their way with children.  Municipalities need to wake up to what is really happening and not play this politically correct game by adding ‘sexual orientation’ to ordinances.  It will lead to more than they think they are bargaining for” 

-- Said there was "no doubt" that inclusive service would "destroy our military"
