No room for gay Republicans

Washington Post blogger Jennifer Rubin, who recently noticed that the conservative movement is virulently anti-gay, has a headline on her latest post that says it all: EXCLUSIVE: Richard Grenell Hounded From Romney Campaign by Anti-Gay Conservatives.

When I learned that Grenell was gay, I knew it was just a matter of time until he was forced out. Mitt Romney may have intended the choice of Grenell as a statement that he was Etch-a-Sketching away from the far right, but this resignation makes a much clearer and more honest statement: that the Republican Party is the party of reactionary anti-gay bigotry.

If Romney honestly did intend to pull away from the far right, he found out today that he’s made a deal with the devil.

UPDATE at 5/1/12 1:57:16 pm

American Family Association bigot Bryan Fischer is ecstatic over the resignation; he says the religious right has forced Mitt Romney to back down, and taught him not to do anything like this again.
