Earlier today, we reported that a school district under Rep. Michele Bachmann’s purview came to a landmark settlement over the bullying of gay students.
We wish Piers might’ve addressed that question, but instead he stuck to general questions about Bachmann’s traditional views on marriage. After Bachmann got testy with him, calling him “rude” for calling out her “judgmental” beliefs on homosexuality, she finally addressed the question head-on.
“I would like to see the lack of demonization for those of us who stand on sincerely held religious beliefs,” said Bachmann. “It’s overdue. That’s where you see the demonization of people who stand on their beliefs.”
Earlier, she tried to deflect a question about Kirk Cameron, who called gay people “unnatural”:
You just brought up Kirk Cameron right now and his comments. He’s the one who is getting trashed right now… Honestly, I think I have had enough of the conversation. I think it’s time to move on. I think we have beaten this horse to death.
We guess she’s never going to change her mind on us sinful gays.
