Boston Tea Party unites pro-equality Johnson, rabidly anti-equality many

by Jeremy Hooper

Screen Shot 2011-12-21 At 8.24.45 AmGov. Gary Johnson, who is seeking the Libertarian nomination for President, is a marriage equality supporter, making a point to say that even civil unions are not enough. So why the hell is he speaking at a weekend Tea Party rally alongside Brian "homosexual relationships are fundamentally dysfunctional" Camenker, Scott "the gay movement is an evil institution" Lively, and Congressman Louis "gay accept destroys nations" Gohmert?!

THIS SUNDAY APRIL 15: Patriots Day Tea Party Rally on Boston Common;To feature MassResistance, Scott Lively, Don Feder. Also: Rep. Louis Gohmert (R-TX), frmr New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson. [MassResistance]

These three men are not mere "protect marriage" types. Camenker? MassResistance? Lively? These are the kinds of fringe folks that even groups the mainstream "pro-family" groups tend to keep on the sidelines. And yet the pro-equality Johnson has no problem sharing the bill in some sort of unified Tea Party call?

Sorry, but I don't see this as reconcilable. I'd encourage the Governor to back off this Tea kettle—the fire is way too hot.


*UPDATE: Gov. Johnson pulls out of anti-LGBT Tea Party rally precisely because of its anti-LGBTness [G-A-Y]
