The Log Cabin Republicans this week announced that Newt Gingrich will headline their fundraiser next month in Washington DC. Gingrich, as most of you surely know, has long been a loud opponent of LGBT rights in virtually every category.
He pledged to reinstate DADT if elected president. He signed NOM’s hate pledge to support a constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage. He once funneled $125,000 to the American Family Association’s campaign to unseat three pro-gay marriage Iowa Supreme Court justices. He has called homosexuality a “lifestyle choice.” He once said this: “I think there is a gay and secular fascism in this country that wants to impose its will on the rest of us and is prepared to use violence.”
