Listen to Majority Leader Cantor lend credence to Tony Perkins' 'values' and 'moral fabric'

by Jeremy Hooper

On a recent edition of "60 Minutes," Diana Cantor, the wife of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, revealed that she supports marriage equality for same-sex couples (10:06 in this clip):

But rather than support his wife's views on what makes up this nation's "moral fabric" or "values," Cantor has instead aligned himself on this (non-)issue with the likes of Tony Perkins, a man who has said gays are "pawns of the enemy," are "operating outside of nature," and that young gay people are depressed and even sometimes try suicide because they "recognize intuitively that their same-sex attractions are abnormal” (much more here).
