Richard Land’s wicked gay anti-Romney analogy

Anti-Mitt Romney evangelical leader Richard Land, who doesn’t think the Republican frontrunner is enough of a hardliner when it comes to hating the gays, offered a very curious analogy last week when interviewed about his attempts to find an alternative. Land told NPR:

Before we marry the guy next door, don’t you think we ought to have a fling with a tall dark stranger and see if he can support us in the manner to which we’d like to be accustomed? And if he can’t, we can always marry the steady beau who lives next door.

Well, yes you can, Dr. Land. But first you’ll have to move to Massachusetts.

    At the very least Dr. Land clears up any misconceptions a straight woman like me had about the grass being greener, etc.

    Personally, I think the press has been negligent in failing to ask candidates to talk more about the religious faith they bandy about when they’re on the stump. I know the Constitution clearly states: “no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States” but I think we’re entitled to know some specifics about the religious beliefs they boast about.
