Herman Cain: Gays choose to be sinners

Add this share

Herman Cain threw a bone to the gays on Monday only to whack them over the head with his nugget on Wednesday: You are sinners who choose to be gay. Ah, ain’t Georgians proud of their homegrown candidate now? On Monday, the anti-gay marriage Cain said as president that he would hire a gay person. Of course, the comment came as he appeared in front of the anti-gay group the Family Leader in Iowa. On stage next to Cain? Bob Vander Plaats, the anti-gay activist who successfully campaigned to oust three state Supreme Court judges for legalizing same-sex marriage in the state. imageOn Tuesday, he underscored his stance against same-sex marriage in an interview with CNN. “I believe in traditional marriage,” Cain told host Wolf Blitzer. And then he repeatedly dodged a question about whether he supported civil unions before telling Blitzer to move on. Then, on Wednesday, this exchange with CBS reporter Brian Montopoli:

BRIAN MONTOPOLI: Homosexuality, do you believe homosexuality is a sin? HERMAN CAIN: I believe homosexuality is a sin, because I'm a Bible-believing Christian. I believe it's a sin. BRIAN MONTOPOLI: Okay. HERMAN CAIN: But, I know that some people make that choice. That's their choice. BRIAN MONTOPOLI: So you believe it's a choice. HERMAN CAIN: It-- I believe it is a choice.
Some gay conservatives, including GOProud’s Chris Barron, lauded Cain for his comment on gay hiring and continue to support him for his fiscal views and business creds. Let’s see how they handle Cain now that he’s even more clear about his views on the gays. We still maintain that Cain is dangerous for the gays.
