Former Senator Disgusted by GOP “Homophobes”


Former U.S. senator Alan Simpson lamented some Republicans' fixation on social issues in a conversation with Chris Matthews, where he declared, "We have homophobes in our party."

Simpson, who represented Wyoming in the U.S. senate from 1979 to 1997, said, "We have homophobes in our party. That's disgusting to me. We're all human beings. We're all God's children."

He attacked former senator and potential presidential candidate Rick Santorum for saying "cruel things" about LGBT people, and he also suggested that male legislators should not even vote on the "deeply intimate and personal decision" involving women's reproductive rights.
