Colorado GOP Senate Candidate Says Being Gay Is A Choice, Compares It to Alcoholism
Ken Buck (left), the Republican-tea party candidate for U.S. Senate from Colorado against Democrat Michael Bennett (right), compared homosexuality to alcoholism on “Meet the Press” and said being gay is a choice.
Asked by host David Gregory to elaborate on a statement he made in an earlier debate about gays in the military, Buck said he believes sexual orientation is a choice.
Buck went on to say, “I think that birth has an influence over it, like alcoholism and some other things, but I think that basically you have a choice.”
Buck is trying to convince the tea party base that he isn’t succumbing to moderates. This probably helped.
