Anti-gay clergy support NY candidate convicted of domestic abuse because he’s anti-gay now

When it comes to hating gays, religious types are pushing the limits. As noted below, in DC, the Catholic Church has decided to punish its own employees because of its vehement anti-gay positions.

In NYC, anti-gay religious leaders have decided to support convicted domestic violence abuser, Hiram Monserrate, because of his anti-gay positions. Monserrate voted against the marriage bill in December. Joe.My.God has the details.

The New York State Senate expelled Monserrate because of his conviction. But, he’s running for that seat again. The special election to fill the vacancy created by Monserrate’s expulsion is on March 16th. His opponent is Jose Peralta, who is pro-marriage equality. Apparently, beating up a woman is apparently much more acceptable and desirable than same-sex marriage for some of New York’s clergy. So, they’re supporting Monserrate.

So, hatred of the gays trumps just about everything for these religious types.
