NY Senate Candidate Wants To Remove Images of Gay People from School Textbooks

A New York Democratic hopeful has vowed to fight to ban images of same-sex couples from school textbooks and voiced his opposition to same-sex marriage.

Queens candidate S.J. Jung, who is challenging incumbent Senator Toby Ann Stavisky in the September 13 primary, made the comments earlier this year to a Korean religious group.

At the same meeting last March, Jung asked for prayers “so I can get elected to the New York State Senate to stop {same-sex marriage and others issues of concern} from happening.”

In a statement to the NY Daily News, Jung did not deny raising the issue of seeking to keep pictures of gay couples out of textbooks. He also confirmed that he opposes same-sex marriage because he believes “in the Bible’s teaching that marriage is between a man and a woman.” He added that his opposition to marriage equality is a “matter of distinction, not a matter of discrimination.”
