Phil Berger Jr tells 6th grader about men marrying dogs

Phil Berger, Jr appeared at a Q&A at the Greensboro Montessori School with other candidates vying for Howard Coble's seat.

Sixth-grader Lana Torres explained that she supported marriage equality, and asked Rockingham County District Attorney Phil Berger Jr. what he would do ensure equal rights for LGBT people.

“Two years ago, the voters of North Carolina overwhelming approved Amendment One, which only recognized traditional marriage, and I was a leader in that effort,” Berger replied, according to the Greensboro News & Record. “I was the spokesperson for traditional marriage in North Carolina, and I am very much in favor of traditional marriage.”

Torres told the paper that she pressed Berger following the conclusion of the forum.

“He talked about a man marrying a dog,” the student recalled. “I found that really offensive, that he would compare gay marriage to something so offensive and outrageous.”

You don't even have to be the top of your class in 6th grade to figure out something's not quite right with Berger.

All by itself

this incident should disqualify Juniorberger from holding the office he seeks. Of course it won't: although his disgusting bigotry is unpopular with enlightened sixth-graders, the base back home laps it up.

That Bergerjunior, who has ALEC in his blood, is not good for business.
