Tell Herman Cain pizza toppings are a choice - being gay isn't (link corrected)
Edited on Thu Oct-27-11 09:05 PM by Omaha Steve

GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain went on ABC's "The View" recently and told the audience that being gay is a choice, recycling an outdated lie that's been debunked over and over again by leading medical organizations.

"You show me the science that says that it's not," Mr. Cain demanded, saying that he "could be persuaded" and that it's all "just a difference of opinion."

Well, Mr. Cain, you might just be in luck. Dr. Jack Drescher, a Distinguished Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association and an expert on the subject, has offered to meet with Mr. Cain to show him hard evidence that being gay isn't a choice a dangerous lie that gives undue credence to harmful practices like reparative therapy.

And now, he is saying he would support an amendment to the Constitution that would make it impossible for committed, loving same-sex couples to marry and receive all the benefits that come with it.

Will you send a letter to Herman Cain now calling on him to meet with Dr. Drescher right away and retract his dangerous statement? If he wants proof, we'll give him proof!

PLEASE take action at the link above.

3. And American needs these goniffs to LOSE . . .
And take their little friends in the House and Senate down with them.

Then we impeach and imprison Clarence Thomas, replace him with someone competent and honest, and things begin to turn toward the light in America again.
