Scott Walker (remember him? He’s the one who said that anti-gay adults as Scout leaders policy protected children) has said something else that is rather silly.
This time, in a recent interview with CNN he said that he “doesn’t know” if being gay is a choice, or if people are born gay.
Scott is currently the front-runner in polls of the Iowa caucus (the same state where Meagan Taylor is being jailed for being transgender), and was questioned regarding this when CNN’s Dana Bash brought up his recent comments regarding the Scouts.
Bash: Do you think that being gay is a choice?
Walker: Oh, I mean I think — that’s not even an issue for me to be involved in. The bottom line is, I’m going to stand up and work hard for every American regardless of who they are, no matter where they come from, no matter what their background. I’m going to fight for people whether they vote for me or not.
Bash: On behalf of people to do that properly you have to understand or at least have an opinion on who they are and where they’re coming from.
Walker: But again, I think — no, I don’t have an opinion on every single issue out there. I mean to me that’s — I don’t know. I don’t know the answer to that question. So, I’m saying I don’t know what the answer to that is. And I’m going to spend my time focused on things that I do know and I can work on.
I think his response speaks for itself.
