North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson, a Republican, said the transgender movement is "dragging our kids down into the pit of hell."

Robinson's comments are reportedly from an August speaking engagement to the Upper Room Church of God in Christ in Raleigh.

"That ain't got no place at no school. Two plus two don't equal transgender. It equals four," he said, according to a video released Tuesday. "You need to get back to teaching them how to read instead of teaching them how to go to hell. Yeah, I said it, and I mean it."

"If there's a movement in this country that is demonic and that is full of anti, the spirit of anti-Christ, it is the transgender movement," he said.

Robinson has faced a myriad of calls to resign.


"When comments are made about a specific group that is disparaging, that group then suffers," Democratic state Rep. Allison Dahle said. "When you live in a place where you're pointed out as something not good, it's really hard to process that."

Robinson reportedly stood firm in his beliefs and rebutted those who demand his resignation, defending his remarks by citing three books found in the state's public schools.

One was titled Gender Queer and included graphic images, according to the report. The Washington Examiner could not independently confirm whether that book is in North Carolina public schools' libraries.

The Washington Examiner reached out to Robinson's office for comment but did not immediately receive a response.
