A prominent rightwing pundit has slammed GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney's decision to appoint an openly gay man as a national security and foreign policy spokesman.
American Family Association radio host Bryan Fischer, who is known for his uber-conservative stance on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) issues, slammed the appointment of former Bush administration official Richard Grenell, according to Right Wing Watch.
Describing Grenell as "out, loud and proud homosexual," Fischer noted, "What gays want is...they don't want the rights, they want the title...they are not about commitment. Homosexuals are about short-lived relationships and frequent anonymous sexual encounters...that becomes a significant issue when we're talking about pointing someone to a post as sensitive as national security and foreign policy."
Take a look at some of Fischer's other statements, along with those of other rightwing pundits, below:
