In case you needed a reminder of his homophobic douchebaggery, likely GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney slipped one in while telling attendees of the Faith and Freedom Coalition conference over the weekend that kids are better off with opposite-sex couples than with same-sex couples.
We need to strengthen the commitment that exists in this country to family. I hope to be able to talk to young people and tell them how important it is to get married before they have children because the opportunity for a mom and a dad to help guide the life of a child gives them such an enormous advantage in their lives going forward.
If the anti-gay bias wasn't clear enough in the above excerpt, a Romney spokesman later clarified the message. “This is what he’s been saying forever. He’s always said that the ideal setting to raise a child is with the mom and the dad.”
