Quote of the Day

[TW for homophobia.]

"I really do not think that we should have homosexuals guiding our children. I think that it's a lifestyle that I don't agree with. I realize a lot of people do. It's my personal faith, religious faith, that I don't believe that the people who do this should be raising our children. It's not a natural thing. You need a mother and a father. You need a man and a woman. That's what God intended."—Florida Attorney General and gubernatorial candidate Bill McCollum, who, I'm sure you'll be shocked to hear, is a Republican. Oh, and a fuckneck.

He's also wrong.

At least about the "you need a mother and a father" business. I've got no quantifiable evidence about the intentions of any heavenly creators.
