Jim DeMint Criticized Over Comments on Gay and Sexually Active Teachers

CBS News Political Reporter Brian Montopoli quotes NOW President Terry O’Neill about the dangerous comments Sen. Jim DeMint made about gays and single sexually active women unfit to teach kids in public schools: “He made the comments in response to a question about similar statements he made in 2004 about gays and unwed single mothers, for which he later apologized. “I answered as a dad with my heart and I did not answer as a Senate candidate. I apologize for making the remark because it distracted from the debate,” he said at the time.”
