Republican National Committee Communications Director Sean Spicer has rebuked the Catholic League for suggesting that Democratic strategist and CAP Action board member Hilary Rosen is not fit to adopt children in part because she’s a lesbian. Spicer tweeted, “The @catholicleague should be encouraging adoption, not demeaning the parents who are blessed to raise these children.” It’s refreshing to hear prominent Republican voices defending gays and lesbians for raising children, but it doesn’t change the fact that Mitt Romney, the party’s presumptive presidential nominee, still opposes same-sex adoption.
Spicer is already walking back his comments, trying to clarify that he did not support same-sex adoption:
@drdigipol: Love it. RNC’s @SeanSpicer endorses #LGBT cple adoption in@HilaryR v Ann Romney debate. http://bit.ly/HM0eT6http://bit.ly/Ibup1H #p2 #tcot
