I don't know about you, but if I go on national television and claim that millions of people's sexual orientations are "absolutely a choice" and further suggest that prison coitus proves this to be so, I think it's fair to say that I am "pretending to know" what I just said I "absolutely" know. And since I spoke in such absolutes, it's also fair to believe that I had given my views some prior thought.

But this is far-right politics we're talking about. And so now a man with a very anti-gay track record is apologizing for his earlier certitude, saying that what he gave to CNN in absolutist language was actually something less considered:
