Former GOP Speaker of the House, Tom Delay hates gays so much he wants all Christians to fight for their right to discriminate against them
April 7, 2015

The former GOP Speaker of the House Tom Delay, told Newsmax's Steve Malzberg that Christians should fight to the bitter end for their right to discriminate against the gays because they are sinners and Christians hate sinners and freedom! I doubt he's looked in the mirror very much in his entire life because he's a well known sinner of the highest order and if he was still in Congress, he'd be sinning as I write these words.

Tom DeLay appeared on Steve Malzberg's Newsmax program yesterday to defend Indiana's "religious freedom" law against the attacks from people who "have chosen to be homosexuals," saying that conservative Christians must be ready to "fight this battle to the bitter end.""

This is the result of the gay agenda," DeLay said. "We're now seeing what the gay agenda is all about ... What they're trying to do is to undermine religious liberty so that they become an accepted sexual orientation. That's what's going on here and we have got to fight this battle to the bitter end because once you let the government dictate to you what you believe and what your values are, then this country's finished."

"This isn't about discrimination," he continued. "We love people that have chosen to be homosexuals. The problem is we abhor the sin."

DeLay went on to say that if he owned a business, he'd have no problem serving a gay customer, provided that he didn't know about their sexual orientation.

"But if he comes in and asks me to undermine my values," he said, "undermine my religious liberty, then I have the right to stand up for what I believe in and not serve him. It's not discrimination; it's the government telling us how we are to act, what we are to believe, and that has got to be fought with every ounce of our being":
