Boehner’s Spokesman: Belonging To A Religion Is Not A Choice, Being Gay Is

The shameless willingness to bullshit in the name of discrimination and special treatment makes the blood boil:

You were born a Christian, not born gay. Religion is not a choice.

Or so the spokesman for House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-OH) would have you believe. Questioned about why the House’s top Republican opposes a hate crimes bill penalizing violence against gays, his spokesman said he “supports existing federal protections (based on race, religion, gender, etc) based on immutable characteristics,” just not protections for things like being gay — which conservatives occasionally claim is a choice.

“He does not support adding sexual orientation to the list of protected classes,” Boehner spokesman Kevin Smith added.
