An anti-gay member of the Republican National Committee made waves at a GOP holiday party last week, when he allegedly accused gays of pushing for health care reform because they die earlier.
According to the Huffington Post, Michigan RNC Committee member Dave Agema made his controversial comments at a Berrien County Republican Party Holiday Reception last Thursday, saying that he witnessed gay coworkers at American Airlines claiming AIDS victims as lovers to get health care coverage.
"(Gay people) want free medical because they’re dying (when they’re) between 30 and 44 years old," said Agema as reported in the southwest Michigan newspaper, the Herald Palladium. "To me, it’s a moral issue. It’s a Biblical issue. Traditional marriage is where it should be and it’s in our platform. Those in our party who oppose traditional marriage are wrong." Full story here!
WGB: What shocks me the most, isn't his ignorant comments but the fact that some gay people would STILL vote for him after hearing them. That deeply saddens me.
