Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) spoke to about 300 constituents earlier this week at Dixie State University. His remarks included some advice for conservatives.
He said the Republicans need to organize and pull together just as unions, environmentalists, personal injury lawyers and gay rights activists do for Democrat candidates. “Gays and lesbians don’t pay tithing, their religion is politics,” said Hatch.
I’d love to know what that means, exactly. Gay people can’t be religious? The LGBT community necessarily cares more politics than the rest of the country?
Here’s what it means, Steve: “My religion is politics.” It’s a pure case of Freudian projection. Look at the millions of dollars that Mormons — mostly Hatch constituents in Utah — poured into California to support Proposition 8.
