Fox News contributor comes out, says he's not an advocate for gay rights

Fox News 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). Benson 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."
