In addition to abortion, Herman Cain also talked about the difference between race and sexual orientation in his interview with CNN’s Piers Morgan last night. Transcript:
MORGAN: My gut instinct, Herman, tells me it [being gay] has to be a natural thing
.CAIN: OK, so it’s your gut instinct against my gut instinct. It’s a wash. It’s a push.That being said, I respect their right to make that choice. You don’t see me bashing them or anything like that. I respect their right to make that choice. I don’t have to agree with it. That’s all I’m saying.
MORGAN: It would be like a gay person saying, Herman, you made a choice to be black.
CAIN: We know that’s not the case. I was born black.
MORGAN: Yes, maybe if they said that, you would find it offensive.
CAIN: Piers, this doesn’t wash off. I hate to burst your bubble.MORGAN: I don’t think being a homosexual washes off.
CAIN: Well, maybe that’s — maybe you are right. I’m just simply saying –
MORGAN: You concede I might be right?
CAIN: That’s my — you might be right, but what I’m saying is this is just my opinion.
