Romney campaign showcases endorsement of pastor who claims gay marriage helped cause 9/11

The Romney campaign released a letter of support from Florida “social conservatives” (that’s the new nice word for the religious right), including a pastor, Dr. Roberto Miranda of the COPAHNI Fellowship of Hispanic Pastors of New England, who has suggested that 9/11 happened because of gay marriage being legalized in Massachusetts. Here’s the letter on Romney’s campaign site.

And here’s the pastor:

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.

Really, Mitt? Now, the Romney campaign problem welcomes the controversy because it’s their anti-gay beard to deflect attention from the fact that Romney once claimed he was better on gay issues than Ted Kennedy.
