And he's at it again!
Of COURSE, he'd be talking at a GOP Holiday Party!
Good on Gov. Snyder, though. I can tell after that Attorney General flap he's tired of this crap.http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/3577112http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/12/11/rick-snyder-dave-agema_n_4422941.html
HuffPostA Republican National Committee official's anti-gay remarks last week are drawing criticism from fellow Republicans, including Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder (R).
Michigan RNC Committee member Dave Agema said at a GOP holiday party last week that gay people want health care reform because they die earlier in life. The Herald Palladium newspaper reported that Agema said he had seen gay colleagues at American Airlines claim AIDS victims as lovers so they could receive insurance benefits.
"Folks, they (gay people) want free medical because they're dying (when they're) between 30 and 44 years old," Agema said, according to Herald Palladium. "To me, it's a moral issue. It's a Biblical issue. Traditional marriage is where it should be and it's in our platform. Those in our party who oppose traditional marriage are wrong."
He sure sounds like fun at parties!
Now, let's all sing it together, once more, with feeling: "They twisted my words verbatim out of context! Wahhhh!"
HuffPostAfter Agema's comments last week were widely reported, he sent an email to supporters, saying the original article "twisted [his] speech far out of context."
"I was simply making a point about my opposition to same sex benefits and for traditional marriage," he wrote. "I stand by my words as I said them despite efforts by others to twist the meaning of those words. I strongly support the GOP Platform, the Michigan Constitution and the RNC Resolutions passed in support of Traditional Marriage and will not back down from those principles."
