In 2006 Delaware GOP Senate candidate told a reporter, “People are created in God’s image. Homosexuality is an identity adopted through societal factors. It’s an identity disorder.” The Washington Post reacts:
O’Donnell’s suggestion that gays suffer from a psychological disorder is far worse than other comments about gays that have already gotten media attention, such as her claim that the government spent too much on AIDS and her insistence that “gays get away with so much.” Also: Last week O’Donnell insisted that her rigid moralistic views represent long-ago youthful excesses. But as late as 2006, she was apparently still suggesting that gays are suffering from some sort of mental illness that has caused them to stray from God’s “image.” Indeed, this would appear to put O’Donnell squarely in the camp of those who liken homsexuality to pedophilia and bestiality.
This is the person that the Quislings at GOProud want to see in the federal government.
