Watch: Former Sen. Alan Simpson (R-WY) Rips 'Homophobes' in GOP
Appearing on Hardball this evening, former Senator Alan Simpson (R-WY) took social conservatives in his party to task, saying male lawmakers shouldn't be allowed to vote on the "deeply intimate and personal decision" of abortion, Zack Ford at Think Progress reports.
He also condemned "homophobes" in the GOP, particularly former Senator Rick Santorum:
"We have homophobes on our party. That’s disgusting to me. We’re all human beings. We’re all God’s children. Now if they’re going to get off on that stuff—Santorum has said some cruel things—cruel, cruel things—about homosexuals. Ask him about it; see if he attributes the cruelness of his remarks years ago. Foul."
