Nobody Can Seem To Find This Antigay Senator’s “Gay Friends”

by Rob Smith March 01, 2016


When Atlanta Journal Constitution reporter Bill Torpy got the “some of my best friends are gay” response from antigay Georgia Republican Senator Greg Kirk when pushed on his policies, he decided to question some of these friends.

The only problem? He couldn’t find them.

A little background: Kirk is pushing one of those “religious freedom” bills that are all the rage right now among homophobes, and after being grilled at a press conference, he came up with the old “gay friends” response:

“Look, I’m 52 years old. I’ve grown up with friends who now live a gay lifestyle. But they’re still very close friends to me, and I care deeply about them, and I have shared this with some of my friends and asked their viewpoint as well. That’s been part of my vetting process.”

Torpy decided to explore this a bit further:

Now that’s a twist on a story, I thought. I’d like to talk with those friends, the ones living that gay lifestyle and who remain close to the senator. What do they think about the bill their buddy was hatching? Do gay people in south and central Georgia think differently than the gays up here? Because in Atlanta, they’re not happy.

After cornering Kirk, he hesitantly agreed to share Torpy’s contact information with his alleged gay friends, but unfortunately none of them wanted to talk to him. Imagine that!

Kirk told the reporter:

“Bill, the only one, and there are only three, that I thought would speak with you said no.”

How convenient! Torpy at least managed to find another Republican rep who co-sponsored an antigay bill that his gay brother spoke out against on the Capitol, so there’s that.

As for Kirk’s gay friends? The intrepid journalist is still on the hunt. We wish him the best of luck on that journey.
