Pastor Says Gay Marriage Caused 9/11, Romney Accepts His Endorsement

Letter is on Romney's site - here.
So Mitt Romney's campaign is touting the endorsement of a pastor that believes gay marriage killed the dinosaurs caused 9/11.

Dr. Roberto Miranda is part of the COPAHNI Fellowship of Hispanic Pastors of New England and believes that equality ruins the world.

RightWingWatch.org quotes Miranda from 2007:
"Satan has warred mightily against this region, and has effectively neutralized it through the influence of principalities of rationalism, humanism, intellectual pride and spiritual arrogance. Massachusetts, as well as all of New England, has become a cemetery of churches, a breeding ground for heretical doctrine, and intellectual furnace energizing attitudes of godlessness, rational arrogance and secularism. It is no coincidence, of course, that something as dramatically distant from the Christian worldview as gay marriage would be originated in this region.



Is it exaggerated to see prophetic significance in the fact that on September 11, 2001 Boston served as the point of departure for the deadly forces that spread so much destruction and havoc in this nation and all over the world? What took place at the material level is now being carried out at the moral and spiritual level, as the virus of homosexuality and gay marriage begins to spread dramatically all over this nation and perhaps the world."
Dr. Roberto Miranda, ThinkProgress
The rest of the letter defends Romney's pro-choice and pro-equality decisions in Massachusetts, basically blaming it all on other people. If Romney has gotten this far, he must be a politically shrewd man. I'm sure he can tell when the weather has changed from its pro-queer Massachusetts sunshine.

This led me to ponder whether or not a politician should dismiss the endorsements of someone who has anti-queer views. Thought experiment - how would I feel if I was endorsed by somebody who said that Latinos caused Hurricane Katrina.

Yeah, I'd disavow the creeper. Now, I get to be disappointed in Mittens.

If you're feeling too happy and want to feel a little crappier/freak yourself out, check out Dr. Miranda's master-plan for Christianity's retaking of Massachusetts.
