From Think Progress:

FAMiLY LEADER President Bob Vander Plaats responded to a petition from LGBT groups asking him to apologize for laughing and praising an offensive “faggot” joke during a March event in Audubon, Iowa. In an interview with WHO Newsradio this afternoon, Vander Plaats defended himself by saying he never used the “f” word and claiming that he was targeted by “gay activists” who were threatened by his group’s success.



Originally from Denver, now living in the Low Countries of Europe. Spent four years in the Navy, got out when I realized I was a big ole flaming mo. Lived in NYC for almost a decade until meeting my husband, who because of the f'ed up immigration laws, can't stay in the US. I'm obsessed with politics and LGBT activism. I cannot stand or abide ANY form of religious stupidity or bigotry....oh, or republicans.
