Anti-gay Republican politician outed on gay hookup site. Again.

Recently, Republican pastor/operative/politician [name] acknowledged that they have an account/posted nude photos/solicited sex on [gay hookup site].

[Name], who continues to oppose same-sex marriage and anti-discrimination laws protecting LGBT people, said in the wake of the news that he has asked his family for forgiveness, and asked their community for thoughts and prayers during this difficult time for him.

“How can you discriminate against the person you’re trying to pick up?” said one man, who was sent sexually suggestive messages and unsolicited dick pics by [name] via the site, apparently unaware of the fact that, as long as you loudly support sexual repression in public, the Republican Party is more than willing to condone what you do in private.

Following the story’s release, local Republican officials stood by [name], insisting that their personal life should remain private, and that the story was leaked for political purposes, saying in a statement that “We are deeply saddened to see someone’s private personal life be exposed, by no choice of his own, for what can only appear to be political motivations. His entire life is turned upside down. Our only hope is that this is not some type of political tactic by the opposing party.”

The pastor/operative/politician remains adamant that they do not condone the “homosexual lifestyle,” nor do they support granting LGBT people “special protections” in the law. [Name] looks forward to returning to their position once they have been “cured” of their sinful affliction, which [name] is downplaying as “my little experimentation.

Following the news that [name] is a flaming hypocrite, a host of other anti-gay-but-kinda-gay conservatives came to [name]’s defense. “Public perception becomes more important than the facts,” said one prominent anti-gay pastor, who had himself been found to have solicited gay sex numerous times in previous years despite preaching about the immorality of same-sex relationships.
