    That there is a self satisfied smirk. Ted Cruz does it, too. I think they think it makes them appear level headed, but they just look insane.

    …Why do all these political types sound and look like back-water preachers?..He is a typical stereotype of the right wing nuttery that in astonishingly numbers mostly in the South (and almost ALL Texas GOP candidates and their constituents) They have a glazed, well-practiced smile on their faces which they think, I suppose, endears them to the base and seems to make them trustworthy. He hides his truths, as they all seem to do, behind God and the “word” of God whom they claim to know personally. Well, yeah, that is a Christian trait. They KNOW what God wants and demands of us. If it doesn’t fit into their arena of belief they discard it. The God of the Old Testament for example was vengeful, violent, and even murderous…all in the name of making us mortals fearful at every turn….And the term this troll uses as does Joel Osteen, that being gay is not “God’s best”..So we are marginalized and treated as a burned cookies? We were overcooked in the oven, so we are discarded as tainted, If that argument is true then he is not “God’s best” either.I don’t and never have bought that idiocy. His voters deserve him.

    It drives me crazy when they don’t answer the question. It drives me even crazier when the interviewer let’s it pass.

    AC asks: “….Does it concern you, again, that your party is now backing a form of therapy which basically every major medical organization says doesn’t work, can be harmful, and which many of the people who have been through it say it doesn’t work and is bad for kids?”

    BH responds: “No one is saying that God doesn’t love people as they are.”

    AC should say: “Answer my question.”

    As usual, when a light is shined on these right wing “brain trusts”, their ignorant theories crumble like the dust; What they say and how they say are more of a statement on themselves sounding moronic, illogical and irrational

    Andersons a good interviewer, it only takes seconds for these stupid rep. fundies to ‘trot out’ the Gawd line..you can’t debate ignorance…this dude has the same ‘draft horse’ size blinders on,that all fundies use….because gawd n jezusn bible..

    It’s amazing how he admits that he doesn’t know what he’s talking about but seems to think it’s okay.

    Also that “God’s Best” is so incredibly insulting. When I hear Joel Osteen use the term it just grates. I don’t think being a bigot who is advocating child abuse (which is what these therapies are) is “God’s Best.”

    Why aren’t the southern Baptists going after Christians who continue to marry and divorce over and over? I’ve read scripture on this subject but it seems christians have forgotten about it. I guess it is ok for them to ignor the bbible.

    Congrats, Gay republicans, on your amazing ability to not change any hearts and minds in your chosen party.

    Cooper – well met. Gay GOPers, this is your fault. You are dropping the ball, every day. You are the reason your party continues to PROMOTE anti-gay prejudice and bigotry.

    If I had a nickel for every closeted gay lawyer I knew from Baylor, I’d have a dollar.

    I actually know this guy, and…let’s just say that to me, his smile says that he thinks Anderson Cooper has real purty lips.

    Closeted men in East Texas, particularly the professional ones what went off to the big city and got some fancy book learnin’, ALWAYS have to grossly overcompensate with things like anti-gay legislation to deflect attention from themselves. That may work to fool some of the potato-diggin’ rubes in Golden, TX, but even a dimestore gaydar detector goes off in cases like this one.

    Well not that Anderson Cooper has finally come out from behind the Vanderbilt Velvet curtain we can praise his bold interviews.
    I wonder what ground rules CNN agrees with to get these homophobic politicians on AC and wish more outrageous right wing lairs were confronted over “social security reform” or tax policy the same way.

    I love it…they believe in “free speech and choice” unless it’s something they don’t agree with…like homosexuality, abortion…smoking pot….etc.

    He has the same kind of grin that Jerry Falwell had. It allows him to make the most hateful statements and sound congenial while doing it.

    And when he replies that there are some experts who believe the way that he does, I am sure that we could find some experts who believe the Earth is flat and the Moon is made of cheese.

    And I loved that Coop could rattle off all of the organizations who oppose “conversion” therapy, seemingly without notes. Not that it would make any difference to the smiling hyena he was interviewing.
