How Dare You Say GA Gov Hopeful Karen Handel Isn’t Conservative Enough. She Hates Gay Parents, Ya Know

Georgia’s former secretary of state Karen Handel wants to be the state’s next Republican governor. But first she’s going to have to address her opponents’ claims, like the one where she’s in bed with radical homosexuals.

Is Handel conservative enough to be the next GOP pick? The Republican frontrunner John Oxendine just distributed a mailer (see here) to voters claiming she’s pro-gay and pro-abortion — and, gasp, A LIBERAL!! Opponent Nathan Deal, a former congressman, has called her out on writing a “sponsorship” check to the Log Cabin Republicans back when she was running for a county commissioner gig, so clearly she supports the gays, right?

Of course not. Defending herself against claims she’s joined LCR or something, Handel wants it made expressly clear where she differs from those fagalas: “Marriage is between one man and one woman. And I’ve been very very clear about that. And the record is clear about any of the other issues like domestic partner benefits or anything like that. In fact in Fulton, I voted no on domestic partner benefits.”

And even though she has gay friends, she says as “a Christian, I view relationships and marriage as being between a man and a woman.” She also doesn’t want homosexuals adopting children. She would “consider” making it illegal. “I don’t” believe gay parents are as legitimate as straight parents, she says.

Well, sounds like you’re conservative enough for us, lady!
