A gay liberal blogger notes more evidence of the deep homophobia that characterizes Tim Wooldridge, Democratic candidate for 1st District Congress. The evidence comes from a Wooldridge interview with the Family Council (and this group’s voter guide will curl your hair about many candidates.)
Does Wooldridge support federal legislation that would prevent job discrimination against people on account of sexual orientation? He does not. If people make a “choice” to be gay, he says, they should not be protected from discrimination.
It’s very simple. Think of any gay person you know, no matter how wise, loving and valuable. Tim Wooldridge supports anyone who’d fire or punish them, not for work performance, but for their essential being.
Steve Bryles, Chad Causey and David Cook, other 1st District candidates, declined to answer the survey in this district. The rest of the field, both Democrats and Republicans, pandered to the Arkansas Taliban in just about every answer.
