Audio: Signorile grills NC's head marriage banner; said banner can't take heat, leaves kitchen, blames cook

by Jeremy Hooper

In an interview with SiriusXM's Michelangelo Signorile, North Carolina state senator Jim Forrester (Very Far R-41st District) tried and failed to defend the "merits" of the marriage amendment that he has carried all the way to the 2012 polls. And when he couldn't answer an actual gay man's perfectly fair questions, Forrester proceeded to accuse Signorile of trying to "trip me up," before running back to more convenient echo chambers.

Listen to the whole thing, via Think Progress' uploaded video. And in particular, listen to the part (7:02 in the first video) where he tries to use NOM's "Anti-Defamation" poster child, Frank Turek, to justify his belief that gays die young:
