A gay president ‘would be bothersome to me just personally because I consider it immoral’

SOUNDBITES — “It would be bothersome to me just personally because I consider it immoral.” —U.S. Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC), who’s pushing the GOP towards more hard-line conservatism, on how he’d feel about a gay president. And you can imagine how he feels about marriage: “Marriage is a religious institution. The federal government has no business redefining what it is. Governments should not be in the business of promoting a behavior that’s proven to be destructive to our society.” (via Bloomberg)
