The Heritage Foundation was one of the few public organizations that strongly supported a recent bill that would have allowed Arizona businesses to discriminate against gay people based on religious beliefs.
Arizona Governor Jan Brewer (R) vetoed the bill, which likely would have been overturned in the courts, but Heritage Foundation staffer Ryan Anderson is still going strong in his quest against to stop homosexuals and gay marriage.
Anderson recently said during a speech that says he has "several" gay friends who oppose equal rights for gay people, noted GoodAsYou.org (audio below).
"There are several people, who I know personally, who themselves are gay, who don't think there's anything wrong with gay relationships, but who are not in favor of gay marriage," claimed Anderson. "They say, 'Whatever a gay relationship is, it's not a marriage.'"
In the past, Anderson written before about his supposed "gay friends."
Anderson wrote in a column for FirstThings.com about a friend who "suffers same-sex attractions, he doesn’t want to, and he seeks to be made whole again."
It's not clear how Anderson has so many gay friends as he routinely bashes homosexuals.
He wrote in The Christian Post, "Same-sex marriage never will be widely accepted in America for a simple reason: It's based on a lie."
Anderson told the Knights of Columbus in an interview, "Same-sex marriage is only plausible in a world that has already done so much damage to marriage and human sexuality."
