    for not trusting him on this.  It's a two-part issue:

    1. The level of damage he's done requires loads more work than just a fundraiser here and there.  This guy ran the virulently anti-gay 2004 campaign nationwide, and I couldn't begin to tell you how many people's lives he damaged.
    1. To quote Claudius from Hamlet:

    But, O, what form of prayer
    Can serve my turn? 'Forgive me my foul murder'?
    That cannot be; since I am still possess'd
    Of those effects for which I did the murder,
    My crown, mine own ambition and my queen.
    May one be pardon'd and retain the offence?

    He's certainly enjoying the millions of dollars he made directing the tide of anti-LGBT hate, so I'm not too inclined to treat him with kid gloves on this issue.
