Head of HI's anti-gay coalition: Gay Rep. Jo Jordan is 'a hero to me'

by Jeremy Hooper

Jim Hochberg has been condemning LGBT people for decades, spearheading multiple fights against equal rights in the Aloha State. That's because, according to him, homosexuality is like drug addiction and same-sex marriages will lead to legalized bestiality.

His new hero? An openly gay lawmaker, natch:

“[Rep. Jo Jordan, an openly gay Democrat] actually gets the fact that individuals who are in businesses related to wedding functions should not be forced to participate in same-sex marriages,” Hochberg explained. “She’s a hero to me. She actually voted what she thought was right rather than what her constituency wanted.”

Also interesting that Hochburg, a leader with an anti-equality movement that's always telling lawmakers how they must do what their constituents want rather than what they might want personally, is applauding Jordan for going against what he admits were her constituents' wishes. Guess it's fine to undermine "the people" when those people are pro-equality, huh?

Strangeness all around. Good thing we already won and can soon move on.
