Brad Dacus, president of the Pacific
Justice Institute, says he has experienced same-sex attractions when
younger but would not answer whether he's had sex with another man.
In an exclusive interview on the Jeff
4 Justice Show, Dacus apologized for likening gay marriage to the
reign of Hitler during a boisterous 2008 rally in support of
Proposition 8, California's gay marriage ban.
“There was another time in history
when people, when the bell tolled,” Dacus told the audience. “And
the question was whether or not they were going to hear it. The time
was during Nazi Germany with Adolf Hitler.”
On the YouTube show, Dacus explained
that he was simply saying that the church should have spoken out
“My point was that the Christian
church needs to learn not to be silent on things that they believe in
and that they know is right and wrong,” Dacus said. “That was
the point. By no means was it to analogize homosexual with Nazis.”
“It was a terrible analogy. The
metaphor fell on its face. But that was my heart,” he added.
When Jeff 4 Justice asked, “Have you
had same-sex attractions?” Dacus answered: “Well, in early
adolescence that's very common.”
“Did you have sexual experimentation
with another guy?”
“Don't even start talking in those
kinds of things,” Dacus responded. “I don't think that's
He added that he has the “full
potential” to engage in “all kinds of sexual acts and practices.
And there is no temptation that is overtaking you but such as is
common to man. I recognize that.” (The video is embedded on this
