contributor Guy Benson has come out as gay.
Benson reveals he is gay in his new book End of Discussion: How the Left’s Outrage Industry Shuts Down Debate, Manipulates Voters, and Makes America Less Free (and Fun)
released next month (June).
He insists that his sexuality is "just a footnote" in the 316-page book and claims that despite being gay, he's not passionate about gay rights.
“Gay rights is not something that dominates my attentions — or my passions — and that may seem incongruous, that may seem counterintuitive to a lot of people, but the issues that I care about most undergird the reasons why I’m a conservative and have been forever and will be a conservative moving forward," said Benson.
In an interview with Buzzfeed
, he added: “I’m for civil marriage, I'm for nondiscrimination laws — but I think there should be broad carve-outs for religious organizations, in particular, and narrow carve-outs for closely-held businesses that serve the wedding industry."
