Alaska Sen. Candidate’s Antigay Adviser

Sarah Palin-endorsed, Tea Party-backed GOP candidate for Alaska senator Joe Miller (pictured) can add another antigay bullet point to his resume. One of his campaign advisers is a self-described "Christian educator" whose organization denounced Rush Limbaugh for having Elton John appear at his wedding.

According to Miller's campaign disclosure forms, Miller has paid Terry Moffitt of High Point, N.C., $2,500 for consulting services.

According to Mother Jones, Moffitt is the head of the Family Policy Network, a group that opposes homosexuality. The group runs a project called Hope for Homosexuals, which encourages "practicing homosexuals to 'come out' of that destructive lifestyle, and to 'come home' to the love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ."

During his primary campaign, Miller wrote in a letter to Alaskan voters that "the traditional Christian view" is that "homosexuality is a sin, and therefore immoral."

Since then he has not campaigned on an antigay platform, however, saying instead that he believes the "central issue of the campaign" is the federal debt and government spending.
