While the future of the Evangelical movement and the GOP both hang in the balance, famously anti-fag Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney‘s mulling the possibility of a presidential run in 2008.
Why “bleck”? Because, if you don’t recall, Romney cultivates the standard Evangelical homophobia. Despite his state’s progressive stance on gay-marriage, Romney spoke out against the homos during Focus on the Family’s recent “Liberty Sunday”. He preached:
Here in Massachusetts, activist judges struck a blow to the foundation of civilization – the family… marriage is not primarily about adults; marriage is about the nurturing and development of children… Every child deserves a mother and a father.
And every bigot politician deserves a shot at the presidency, right?
In the aforementioned meetings, Romney’s apparently asking for advice on how to successfully reconcile his political aspirations with his religious beliefs. The Boston Globe reports:
The meetings have touched on several themes, participants say, but two topics being discussed are Romney’s religious beliefs and how he should address his faith as the campaign progresses.
Given the Haggard situation, Romney want to wait until after next week’s elections to have any more meetings.
(As an aside, in our previous post on Romney, we inquired as to where a name like “Mitt” originates. A reader named Ryan – whom, we must say, consistently posts great comments – informed us that Mitt’s real name is Willard. Sure, it’s not great, but definitely cuter than Mitt. But, then again, neither’s so cute when attached to that man.)
