Herman Cain, Bigot

So Herman Cain is the latest one to publicly say that homosexuality is a choice?  It's bad enough when people use their so-called religion as an excuse for their ignorance and bigotry, but this is a presidential candidate, and one who is leading in the polls for the Republican nomination.

So just for the record, Mr. Cain, your bigotry is particularly ugly coming from an African American. I no more chose to be a homosexual than you chose to be black. You have a duty as a public figure to encourage understanding and foster responsible discussion.  By pouring fresh fuel on a viewpoint long since negated by science and psychology, you mark yourself as a bigot, and therefore not worthy of consideration for any political office.

Go back to selling pizza, Mr. Cain -- and who knows, maybe one day you'll find out how many of the toadies you surround yourself with got more of a kick out of kissing you butt than you realized.
