    Romney once courted gay and lesbian votes in gay bars while running for governor of Massachusetts. Now he wants the mantle of Bigot in Chief. If he wins, he’ll fit right in when he gets to Washington. Until recently Mitt Romney’s Utah based fundraiser was Robert Lichfield. Lichfield runs a group of christian/mormom youth “reeducation” camps, These snake pits are popular with christian parents who want to compel their gay children to become ‘normal’. He was forced to resign as Romney’s fundraiser when he became the defendant in a federal lawsuit charging that students at these “behavior modification” camps suffer “physical abuse, emotional abuse and sexual abuse.” No doubt the worst abuse was reserved for the worst sinners – young gays and lesbians, some in their very early teens. (Deseret Morning News, SLC Utah.) The lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for Utah contends that the children forced into these camps by their smugly incompetent parents for being ‘ungodly’ were kicked, beaten, thrown to the ground, imprisoned in animal cages, made to eat their vomit, instructed to clean toilets with a toothbrush and then brush their teeth with it, and forced into sexual acts. That’s the real thing – it’s child abuse and it’s as repulsive and perverted as that practiced by priests on altar boys. Republicans (the Repugnant Party) are baboons in people suits with a totalitarian christian attached at the hip. Democrats (the Deceitful Party) are Republicans in drag. Which ever one wins we end up paying the price – dying in wars, suffering discrimination, coping with a lowered standard of living, or just drowning when the levees break.
