Chris Matthews: ‘If you’re really anti-gay, you become a Catholic now’ [VIDEO]

MSNBC host Chris Matthews said Monday at Ford’s Theatre in Washington, D.C., “if you’re really anti-gay you become a Catholic now.”

“There are a number of people who have chosen to convert to the Catholic faith because they don”t like the liberal positions taken by their sectarian groups,” said Matthews, “that’s a fact, you can write that down.”

Scott Whitlock of the Media Research Center asked Matthews to clarify.

“I’m saying that some people who are bigoted against gay people have changed religions, yes,” he responded.
