One Michigan Republican National Committeeman promoted an article’s claim that “part of the homosexual agenda is to get the public to affirm their filthy lifestyle,” Slate reported Wednesday.
Dave Agema, a former member of the Michigan House of Representatives, took to his personal Facebook page (only viewable by Agema’s friends) to express his views on the gay and lesbian community, sharing an article titled "Everyone Should Know These Statistics on Homosexuals."

In addition to labeling gays and lesbians as “filthy,” the article -- penned by Frank Joseph, M.D. -- makes several aggressive accusations against the gay and lesbian community, including pinning homosexuals as child molesters.
“Because homosexuals can’t reproduce naturally, they resort to recruiting children.” the article adds. “Homosexuals can be heard chanting ‘TEN PERCENT IS NOT ENOUGH, RECRUIT, RECRUIT, RECRUIT’ in their homosexual parades.”
Agema has been an outspoken opponent of gay and lesbian rights, voicing his strong opposition to same-sex marriage and domestic partner benefits.
In 2009, then-State Rep. Agema criticized Michigan Democrats for attempting to overturn Michigan’s 2004 voter-approved ban on same-sex marriage, accusing the lawmakers of “subverting the will of the people.”
well a single Democrat used racist attacks and threats to a constituent this week in Alabama. that reminded me of the Jessie Helms era, too. his comments have tainted the entire Democratic party and are a black eye on OBama

So this person was an official in the Democratic party and condemned a whole minority?

I'd like to read about this to see if we're comparing apples to apples.
histrionic people who rush to lump an entire party based on the comments of a person nobody has ever heard of, nationally, are stupid and horrible for the process. you are very bad at buying into the emotional thinking

If most of my Facebook friends are going to support people who are gay by posting the red equal sign, I am going to post two feet, the feet represent the millions who never get to breathe the air of this world, who never feel love let alone get married, those who never have the chance to have children or go to school or do anything many gays are afforded the privilege to do. They are never given this chance because a human decides that their life is unimportant because of a defect or being an inopportune time for the person who conceived them. This is for the millions of children aborted yearly. Talk about rights being denied.
