Here’s another goodie from Christine O’Donnell, the conservative activist who has asked voters to look past her previous right-wing statements on sex: As recently as 2006 — the first time she ran for Senate, losing the Republican primary — she declared that homosexuality was an identity disorder.
As Greg Sargent reports, O’Donnell said in an interview for the Wilmington News Journal in 2006 that homosexuality was a disorder. Greg has obtained the original quote from the reporter’s notes:
“People are created in God’s image. Homosexuality is an identity adopted through societal factors. It’s an identity disorder.”
