    The Founder of Planned Parenthood was a racist. She believed Blacks were unfit. She didn't think they should be allowed to breed.
    Yes she did. She was supported by Prescott Bush also.

    But. They need to find a way to communicate their opinions so that they don't look like idiots.

    I prefer to have the idiots come out of the closet as idiots so there is no ambiguity about whether to vote for them.

And whether they are right or wrong to you is of no consequence and irrelevent. I would hope that you would at least recognize that this person, and every other person on this planet has a right to their views and calling him a "demented fool" just shows that you are being no better than what you are trying to claim him as. Remember, whenever you point a finger at someone you have 3 more fingers pointing at you.
    He should stand by his values and beliefs. I wish more Republicans were vocal in what they really believe instead of kow towing to what everyone else believes.

    Because liberals treat the right with respect when they say similar things, as long as they're white

    That's why the left always treats Santorum with respect

    How did you determine prejudice was morally wrong?

    More importantly, his actions are utterly unacceptable for anyone running for elected office. He is sworn to serve all of the citizens of the state of Virginia, but by refusing to even apologize, he demonstrates that he prioritizes bigotry above his duty.

    In you're opinion he is prejudiced. Not in his. Tell me, what are you prejudiced against? I bet you I can name one just by reading your post here.....Remember what I said in that post you responded to..."whenever you point a finger at someone you have 3 more fingers pointing at you"

    And it doesn't matter about being elected to serve "ALL" the people. 1: Not all the people elected him. 2: As Lincoln once stated.."you can please some of the people some of the time, but you cannot please all the people all the time." That saying is quite the truism. What you ask for is impossible no matter the person that holds that office. Even Jesus, a being who was suppose to be Perfect, could not please everyone as evidenced by the fact that he was hung on a cross. If he couldn't then no one else has even a split chance of it.

    If I believed the same as him (which I don't) i'd prolly say it the same way. But then I'm anti-political correctness and often say what is on my mind no matter what the PC Police say.
