The head of Iowa’s anti-gay FAMiLY LEADER goes right along with a gay joke about cigarettes and slurs, in video posted today by Think Progress:
ATTENDEE: You know what my wife says? She says: Iowa, the state where you can’t smoke a fag, but you can marry one.
BOB VANDER PLAATS: Oh shoot, that’s pretty good, that’s pretty good. Oh shoot.
Before taking over the FAMiLY LEADER and its Iowa Family Policy Center, Mr. Vander Plaats led the campaign to throw out state Supreme Court judges who ruled in favor of marriage equality. Now the group has been trying to get candidates to sign the marriage pledge with amazing footnotes about Sharia law and anal incontinence. But this thing with teh gays and the cigarettes is a long theme here – check out their Photoshopping of Congressman Barney Frank, screengrabbed below.
