Straight out of Scaliseland "conservative values"

This story sounds like something straight out of Scaliseland - some more of those 100% rock-solid conservative values he will champion as part of the GOPer obstructionist minority if (God forbid) he is elected to represent LA01. Scalise, and this guy Wicker, need to go out and buy some bigger jockeys. Damnit, we deserve better than this mindless bigotry.

It’s Not Called the Hate Amendment for Nothing WOW. At first glance, that’s all I can say about the comments from Pastor Hayes Wicker of Naples, Florida. Here’s what he said at an anti-gay event last week: "This is a tremendous social crisis, greater even than the issue of slavery."
For those who don’t know, fundamentalist right-winger(nuts) in Florida are attempting to pass a constitutional amendment in Florida this year that would ban gay marriage in the Sunshine State. The same gay marriage that is already illegal under four separate parts of state law. And this amendment wouldn’t just ban gay marriage, it would also prevent civil unions, cities and corporations from offering benefits to gay couples and anyone from giving benefits to unmarried straight couples. [That should cover just about everybody but him and his Christian (not) flock.]
