Conservative radio host Mike Gallagher of The Mike Gallagher Show suggested Tuesday that a recent Calif. decision protecting gay rights is a victory for pedophiles in the state.

Mike Gallagher was discussing Monday's California Supreme Court decision that bars doctors from invoking their religious beliefs to deny treatment to gays and lesbians. The case involved a lesbian, Guadalupe Benitez of Oceanside, California, who said doctors refused to inseminate her because their religious convictions conflicted with her homosexuality.

On Tuesday's show a caller asked if the court's decision was a victory for pedophile adoptions.

Caller: “The question I had told your screener, I said, if I'm understanding, California said because of sexual orientation they can't deny you service, so does that mean pedophiles could adopt?”

Mike Gallagher agreed with the caller, saying: “Well that's just, that's a great question. I mean, if you work in an adoption agency and a guy comes in saying, 'I like girls and I want to adopt a nine-year-old girl and I'm going to probably sleep with her while I'm at it', could the adoption agency person say, 'Well, excuse me, my religious beliefs find that, lead me to find that repugnant, I'm not going to do it.' Can he then turn around and sue the adoption agency and win, like the lesbian did?”

“In California, it sounds like you can,” the caller responded.

“In California, I think you can do a bit of everything. I'm starting to think the California Supreme Court lets just about anything go,” Gallagher added.

But, as Think Progress points out, sexual contact with a minor under the age of 18 is illegal in California. In fact, since 2006 Proposition 83 bans all convicted sex offenders from living 2,000 feet of a school or park and requires electronic monitoring for life.
