Today, the American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer declared a “huge win” in response to the news that Mitt Romney’s openly gay foreign policy spokesperson Richard Grenell had resigned. According to Fischer, Grenell’s resignation is evidence that Romney is catering to social conservatives, expressing great confidence that Romney “is not going to make this mistake again. There is no way in the world that Mitt Romney is going to put a homosexual activist in any position of importance in his campaign.” Watch it:

Fischer had led the charge against Grenell’s appointment, attacking him for being a “homosexual activist” whose behavior is “offensive to God.” (HT: RightWingWatch.)
