DeMint: 'Homosexuality Is Immoral'

South Carolinian Senator DeMint doesn't mince words when it comes to homosexuality:
[Jim DeMint, R-SC] takes a hard line on social issues, passionately anti-abortion and pro-guns. He has been most outspoken as an opponent of any form of gay marriage.

“Marriage is a religious institution. The federal government has no business redefining what it is,” DeMint says. This is one issue where he doesn’t support states’ rights; state government shouldn’t have the right to permit gay marriage: “Governments should not be in the business of promoting a behavior that’s proven to be destructive to our society.”

He cringes at the notion of a gay or lesbian president: “It would be bothersome to me just personally because I consider it immoral.”
