We believe there has to be an individual category of stories specifically for everything Gene Simmons has said in the past because he’ll keep saying anything no matter what. Last time we wrote about him, he decided to comment on Prince’s death by saying it was “pathetic that he killed himself,” to which he had to apologize after his family pressured him to do so. This time, he’s taken on a topic a little less controversial – pedophilia.
In the latest issue of Classic Rock magazine, Simmons was featured on their segment The Gospel According To… where he talks about various subjects like politics or religion and he went into the topic of pedophilia. He said about the subject:
“Pedophilia is an incurable condition – death is the only answer, apart from sending them to the gulags of Siberia.
“And priests who are pedophiles are the lowest of the low. If you put on a priest’s collar and use your influence to command someone to suck your cock, there’s a special place in hell for you.”
Let’s remember that a few months ago, Simmons’ house got raided by the LAPD’s Internet Crimes against Children Task Force after someone had used his house’s internet connection to search child pornography. In the same article, he insists he doesn’t believe Islam is a violent culture and says he advocates marriage, but only for older men as “males of all ages are actually 16-year-old horny toads.” At the end of the day, there are probably plenty of rational people that won’t fight Simmons on this one.
