And we thought Sarah Palin was nuts?
Police are investigating whether an independent federal candidate committed a hate crime by telling high school students homosexuals should be executed.
David Popescu was invited to participate in a federal candidates’ discussion at Sudbury Secondary School on Tuesday. He made the comment after a student asked his opinion of gay marriage.
During a telephone interview later in the day, Popescu reasserted his view.
“A young man asked me what I think of homosexual marriages and I said I think homosexuals should be executed,” he said. “My whole reason for running is the Bible and the Bible couldn’t be more clear on that point.”
Candidates and teachers looked on in silence as students called for him to be “cut off.”
If Popescu had any odds of getting elected, he doesn’t anymore…
