But only, says he, during his personal time…
Washinton DC’s Metro Weekly quotes Michigan’s Assistant Attorney General Andrew Shirvell from the AC360 video interview above:
“Long before I started the blog, a couple of weeks before that, the Alliance Defense Fund, a well-known legal Christian foundation put out an alert about Chris…. Chris Armstrong is a radical homosexual activist who got elected partly funded by the gay and lesbian Victory Fund to promote a very, deeply radical agenda at the University of Michigan…. His biggest issue is gender-neutral housing! What we’re talking about is anybody, any man or woman wanting to choose to live together. That’s a radical redefinition of gender norms….
”Excuse me Anderson, that’s taken from another posting. Somewhere on the internet I may have put out that [he’s Satan’s representative on the student council], but that’s my opinion…. I’ve protested outside of his house, yes. I’m a Christian citizen exercising my First Amendment rights.”
Think Progress quotes more:
COOPER: Do you consider yourself a bigot?
SHIRVELL: Absolutely not. I’m a Christian citizen exercising my first amendment rights. I have no problem with the fact that Chris is homosexual, I have a problem that he’s advancing a very radical agenda.
COOPER: I bring up the bigot question because Merriam Webster’s dictionary defines bigot as a person obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her prejudices…labeling a student a Nazi, picketing his house, it seems to make you appear intolerant at the very least. It seems you hate this guy because he’s gay.
SHIRVELL: Well, Anderson, that’s your spin on it. The real bigot here is Chris Armstrong. I don’t have any hate in my body at all.
