Romney Embraces Worst of the Worst Homophobes

The Romney campaign released a letter today touting the former governor's conservative bona-fides in an attempt to seal the deal with the Lunatic Base, and among the signatories to this new coalition of Romney-backing conservatives is a man who links the "virus of homosexuality" to the 9/11 terror attacks.

Mitt Romney’s campaign today unveiled its Social Conservatives Coalition along with a letter from nine Massachusetts activists defending Romney’s conservative credentials on abortion rights and gay rights while governor. As Jeremy Hooper noted, one of such activists includes Roberto Miranda, who claimed that Satan is behind marriage equality and directly tied advances for gay rights to the attacks on September 11th, 2001.

Right Wing Watch has the full quote:

Is it exaggerated to see prophetic significance in the fact that on September 11, 2001 Boston served as the point of departure for the deadly forces that spread so much destruction and havoc in this nation and all over the world? What took place at the material level is now being carried out at the moral and spiritual level, as the virus of homosexuality and gay marriage begins to spread dramatically all over this nation and perhaps the world.

While this is sure to win Mitt Romney an added dose of batshit credibility, I can't imagine Independents and moderate voters responding very well. Both of whom Romney is already tanking with.

This primary is going to leave Romney a bruised turd of a candidate.
