LONDON, August 13, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) - 20-year-old Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe has, in an interview with a homosexual magazine, expressed anger and intolerance for parents who oppose education about homosexual sex in the classroom.  "Then there's all this stuff at the moment, which is hateful, about people being up in arms about the idea of gay sex education in schools.  Hello!?!  Actually for the one or two gay kids in the class, it's f***ing vital!  It really makes me angry," he said in an interview with Attitude.

The magazine quotes Radcliffe continuing his tirade against pro-family parents saying: "I just loathe homophobia. It's just disgusting and animal and stupid and it's just thick people who can't get their heads around it and are just scared."

He concluded the point assuring his interviewer, "I'm not just saying that because I'm being interviewed for Attitude. I'd be using a lot stronger language if this wasn't on tape."

Radcliffe returned to the theme when asked about Potter author Rowlings' admission  that she intended one of the characters in the novels and film to be homosexual.  "The idea that there can't be a gay character in a kid's film," he said.  "It's the same thing, this terrible fear of exposing anybody below the age of consent to anything vaguely gay … it's ridiculous.  I just brushed those questions aside.  I'd never normally do that but some things I won't waste my time with."

Explaining his stance on the issue Radcliffe said, "I grew up around gay people entirely."
