LEAKED AUDIO: Texas GOP councilwoman and her staff caught comparing homosexuality to incest, pedophilia

A secret recording was leaked to the press this Thursday revealing a conversation between a San Antonio Texas GOP councilwoman and her staff — in which the discussion deteriorated into a chorus of harsh anti-gay rhetoric. James Stevens, who is an aide to San Antonio District 9 Council Woman Elisa Chan, leaked the audio to the San Antonio Express-News, which he secretly recorded during a May 21 meeting in Chan’s office to discuss an approaching non-discrimination ordinance. However, the nearly 16-minute audio reveals a discussion where staffers compare homosexuality to incest and pedophilia, with Chan stating her opinion that gays are “disgusting to even think about.” In addition to her revulsion towards the LGBT community, Chan can be heard saying that she believes being gay is a choice and that gay people should not adopt children. “My decision to record in the first place was that, during staff meetings, we weren’t really discussing the ordinance itself,” Stevens said to the San Antonio Express. “We were really just talking about ways to appeal to the [voting] base and to get them fired up as opposed to analyzing the ordinance.” “[Chan] is only focused on her political future,” Stevens continued. “She’s not focused on the policy itself and how it’s really going to affect the city. We spent 80 percent of the meeting talking about how disgusting homosexuality is.” At the outset of the recording, an unidentified staffer drives the conversation, lamenting liberal and “pro-gay folks” for legitimizing homosexual behavior. “Anything goes,” the staffer says. “No morals and values. And pretty soon what’s going to happen, you know, like a lot of liberals and, like, the pro-gay folks, they say ‘as long as it’s between two consenting adults’ — you know, that’s pretty wide. That can go for incest — let’s say it’s an adult, an adult man and his adult daughter, okay, they’re consenting adults, you know, brother and sister, as long as they’re over 18, they’re consenting adults.” “It’s against the law,” another staffer only identified as “Jackie” interrupts, referring to the incest reference. “Yeah, and homosexual relationships used to be against the law, Jackie,” the staffer replies. Later on in the audio, Chan can be heard slamming gay adoption. “I don’t think homosexual people should do adoption,” she says. “They should be banned by adoption. You’re gonna confuse those kids. They should be banned. If you wanted to choose that lifestyle, we don’t want to discriminate you, but it shouldn’t affect the young people. How terrible that we actually allow them to adopt?”
