Sharron Angle Questionnaire Puts Nevada Senate Candidate’s Anti-Gay Views on Record

Nevada Tea Party candidate Sharron Angle has already been tied to an extreme homophobic flyer put out by the party she attached herself to in the 90's — Nevada's Independent American Party. The flyer labeled gays 'sodomites — child-molesting, HIV-carrying, Hell-bound freaks'.

Angle Now, Angle's personal positions on a variety of issues have been recorded on an AP questionnaire given to the candidate.

They report, along with a slew of other positions:

Among her positions, outlined in answers to 36 yes-or-no questions, Angle would oppose making sexual orientation a protected minority in civil rights laws. In a section on school prayer, she affirms that students and teachers should be able to talk openly about religion in schools, including the right to "publicly acknowledge the Creator."

On adoptions, Angle believes children should have a relationship with a mother and a father, and she believes education should be managed at the local level "not by bureaucrats in Washington," Agen added.

Angle also said she would refuse campaign contributions from any company that supported gay rights, the Washington Post notes: "Angle's position is striking. It's one thing to oppose gay marriage, or to oppose equal rights for gays. It's quite another to refuse to accept campaign contributions from a company that chooses of its own free will to support gay rights or extend benefits to partners of its own employees."
