• Tolerance: Bruce Jenner Slammed Online After Coming Out as A Conservative Christian

    Liberals are tolerant and accepting of everyone, everyone except Republicans, of course.

    Bruce Jenner confirmed in a two hour ABC News interview Friday that he is in the process of “transitioning” into a woman–but the only jaw dropping part of the interview for many was when the former Olympic champion identified himself as “conservative.”

    Diane Sawyer asked Jenner for his reaction to President Obama identifying trans Americans during this year’s State of the Union address.

    “He actually was the first one to say the actual word transgender,” Sawyer noted.

    I will certainly give him credit for that,” Jenner said of Obama. “But not to get political, I’ve just never been a big fan — I’m kind of more on the conservative side.”  Jenner also claimed he was a Christian. 

    Sawyer clearly stunned by Jenner’s admission, asked him if he identifies as a Republican.

    ”Yeah. Is that a bad thing? I believe in the Constitution,” Jenner replied.

    The tolerant left didn’t take kindly to Jenner’s announcement

    Log Cabin Republicans national executive director Gregory T. Angelo issued a statement supporting Jenner.

    “As the nation’s only organization representing LGBT conservatives and straight allies, Log Cabin Republicans congratulates Bruce Jenner in the tremendous courage he demonstrated tonight, being true to himself both in terms of his personal identity as well as his political identity,”Angelo said. “There is a home for you in Log Cabin Republicans — as there is for all lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, and transgender conservatives and straight allies.”
