Shocker: More devaluing from a 'Values Voter' star

In the days since he introduced and endorsed GOP presidential candidate Rick Perry, Pastor Robert Jeffress has become the biggest face and voice from this year's Values Voters Summit, with most mainstream media figures picking up on his comments calling Mormonism a cult. But now our pals at Right Wing Watch have unearthed what should become Part 2 of this story: Jeffress' rabid hostility towards LGBT people.

Have a listen:

At this point, Perry has not denounced or really even distanced himself from Jeffress, only saying that he disagrees with the "cult" characterization. And honestly, I'd be surprised if he does. Let's gets real: It's because of comments like the above that Robert Jeffress got an invite to the Values Voter Summit, not despite of. Hell, Bryan Fischer went on that very same stage and said he wants a President who'll declare gays a public health hazard, and people just kind of accepted it as par for the natural "values voter" course.

Here in what's shaping up to be the most extreme GOP field in modern history (particularly on LGBT issues), divisive politicking has taken the front seat that responsible drivers would have given to civility. And sadly, this bus doesn't seem anywhere close to running out of fuel.
