“Harry Potter” is disgusted with GOP candidates

Daniel Radcliffe is the British actor who played the boy with the round glasses in the wildly popular and lucrative Harry Potter movies. Henceforth I will no longer watch — even for free — any movie or TV with Radcliffe in it.

The UK’s Attitude magazine has a cover story on Radcliffe, but the story isn’t available online. What Radcliffe told Attitude, however, is quoted on Towleroad, which calls itself “a site with homosexual tendencies.”

In his interview with Attitude, Radcliffe begins by stating his support for gay marriage, saying:

“The ultimate reason gay marriage should be legalized everywhere is because, as a kid, you look to your mum and dad and they’re married, then you look at the gay couple who’ve been together for the same amount of time, but because they can’t get married their relationship doesn’t seem the same. Yes, gay marriage is about symbolically blessing a relationship, but the larger issue is about transmitting a fundamental message about equality. Gay people should have equality in law everywhere. If you grow up as a young gay man knowing you don’t have the same opportunities as everyone else, you’re going to feel victimised and massive prejudice towards you.”

From there, Radcliffe bashes religion and proclaims he’s an atheist:

“I’m not religious, I’m an atheist, and a militant atheist when religion starts impacting on legislation. We need sex education in schools. Schools have to talk to kids from a young age about relationships, gay and straight.”

From there, Radcliffe, a Brit, declares that he is “disgusted, amazed, stunned” by GOP candidates like Rick Santorum and Michele Bachmann and their open hostility to gay rights. But he reserves his special dislike for one Republican in particular:

“…they disgusted me less than candidates like Rick Perry, who made that ridiculous advert wearing ‘the Brokeback jacket’, and I think pretend to be homophobic just to win votes.”

Radcliffe then says although he wishes Obama could come out for gay marriage, he is firmly pro-Obama:

“Of course he’s [Obama] in favour of it [gay marriage], but he has to be careful about saying so. I’d rather have someone like him in the White House than the alternative.”

Radcliffe then concludes the magazine interview by almost apologizing for not being gay, although he can most certainly “see” why a man would want to have anal sex with a good looking man:

“I can quite happily say someone is handsome, good-looking, and I can see why someone would want to f**k them, but I’ve never felt that way about a man myself. There is that moment in your late teens when you ask yourself the question, ‘Am I?’ but I wasn’t…Well, this year I have a talent crush on Ryan Gosling. I think he’s fantastic and…(ahem) you know he’d be nice afterwards. He seems smart. If I was gay, I would go for a smart man.”

Once upon a time, I had loved the Harry Potter movies. No more. I will now dump my Harry Potter DVDs into the trash bin.

  1. He’s not gay? Hmm…never seen him with a girlfiriend….

    Never watched HP movies and never plan to. He can have his opinion and I’ll keep mine TYVM.

    Do tell, how does this actor know Skippy favors gay marriage? He got a direct line to the WH?

  2. He will come out one of these days. Skip all his movies. Don’t support trash.

  3. Here is yet another reason I am grateful that my kids did not delve into this HP series and hype. I had reservations about the whole series anyway. The witchcraft, and other hypnotical intensities that manifested itself in these were not ever on any fave list of mine. I am not trying to sound judgmental… to each their own; I see the attraction(s)… My kids had made up their own minds w/o my input…which again, I was glad they chose not to become interested in it.

  4. Do us all a favor and disappear back into your fantasy land Radcliff, You’ve polluted the minds of a whole generation with your harry pooter(an intentional misspell)tripe.

    I have never watched this POS in any film and never will, wouldn’t waste my money nor my time. it would be just as entertaining watching clothes tumble in a dryer

  5. Radcliffe then says although he wishes Obama could come out for gay marriage, he is firmly pro-Obama:

    Er, doesn’t this idiot know the Muslim position on homosexuals and gay marriage?

    • But he’s British… so he can’t vote here, too bad.

      • And once the camel-washers have turned his country into the United Kingdomistan, he won’t be voting there, either.

        And he is too f’ing stoopid to even see it coming.

        LOL – Sucks to be him, I guess.

  6. Who really cares what a British teenager thinks…

  7. Well since I’m not only a member but the Chairman of the DNCC (Do Not Care Club) I here by charge Danny boy of being a useless tool all those in favor say “I”!

  8. more trash for innocent children.

  9. Alot of the younger generation will care more what he thinks then what our candidates think! I have never seen his movies, I have always thought they were pretty satanic to begin with!
    Anybody catch the Grammys last night? I wanted to watch Jennifer Hudson sing Whitney’s “I Will Always Love You”, so we watched. LL Cool J started the whole show off with a Prayer! It was great! Close to the end did anybody see niki manaj’s horrific Satanic act? We recorded it so we watched the show after the kids went to sleep! She was sitting by Taylor Swift, with a satanic robe on the whole night! I turned it off in the middle! It was disturbing! Just wanted to see what everyone else thought!

  10. How will Radcliffe feel once sharia completely takes over Britain (and it will unless they do something quickly) and the gays are beheaded? As his hero Obama looks on laughing.

  11. What about sex with a nice cuddly animal?? Are we all bigots cuz we just don’t see equality in bestiality?? I mean, is there any level where “if it feels good do it” isn’t the standard of ethics and morality?? What level of degeneration is “bad or wrong”?? This moral CESSPOOL of SELF-ESTEEM BEING #1 ~~ and we just can’t “hurt people’s feelings” by telling them that what they are doing is MORALLY WRONG AND PERVERTED — no, there is no limit on hell’s ambition to destroy all that is holy.

  12. Dennis H. Bennett

    Its striking how the emptiness of his language matches so closely those he admires. He resembles a field-dressed deer-no guts and no longer able to think for himself.

  13. I’m not complaining about anyone who believes it’s wrong and un-Christian to read Harry Potter books and watch the movies, but if you are such a person, I heard of a pastor who said IF we are going to complain about them, we need to complain about Cinderella too.

    I love the beautiful scenery in the movies, I love the variety of European accents, the nice clothes everybody wears in it, and the refined culture.

    • Ok, I think I should clarify that this pastor and his wife are friends of my aunt and I believe, my impression was, he was just making a passing comment while sitting down in a living room, not in the pulpit. Also, he may know nothing about the story in Harry Potter, I think he was referring to people who say it is sinful based on the sorcery alone.
