It's not news, folks.

A Republican who is anti-gay is not news. LGBT groups beholden to the Democrats condemning an anti-gay Republican is not news. Now, show me a Republican who isn't anti-gay or an LGBT group that will be equally critical of anti-gay Democrats as they are of anti-gay Republicans, and THAT's news, folks.

"I believe homosexual acts between two individuals are immoral and that we should not condone immoral acts," Pace said in a wide-ranging discussion with Tribune editors and reporters in Chicago. "I do not believe the United States is well served by a policy that says it is OK to be immoral in any way.

"As an individual, I would not want [acceptance of gay behavior] to be our policy, just like I would not want it to be our policy that if we were to find out that so-and-so was sleeping with somebody else's wife, that we would just look the other way, which we do not. We prosecute that kind of immoral behavior," Pace said.

The only people who seem genuinely shocked by Pace's comments are gay Republicans. Did they really think his opinion was anything different?
