Conservative anti-gay movement built on foundation of questionable credibility - MSNBC



Feb 26, 2024 #LGBTQ #CPAC #Conservatives
Rachel Maddow looks at just a small sampling of the many examples of right-wing leaders who were forced to resign from their anti-gay organizations after their own homosexuality came to light. However, multiple allegations of sexual misconduct made by men against Matt Schlapp, chair of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) have not driven him from leading the group, known for its anti-gay sermonizing.

Disgusting eater of Pork, which is clearly forbidden in Leviticus. A far worse sin than being gay, because he chose to eat pork. He is not gay, so he is not himself committing that "Sin". And certain religions allow flogging of bacon eaters..
