LGBTs who vote Republican in the coming presidential election are either selfish, delusional or both. A vote for Mitt Romney is a clear vote against LGBT rights. Let’s break it down.

The delusional voters are the easiest to understand. They think that a Republican leadership that has repeatedly denounced LGBTs will be so busy fixing up the place that they’ll forget all about those empty promises to burn us at the stake.
