NORTH CAROLINA: “Moron Of The Week" Inductee & Anti-Gay Sen. James Forrester Dies At Age 74
Infamously anti-gay North Carolina state [Sen.] James Forrester has died unexpectedly at the age of 74.
On Friday, Forrester and family members went to the mountains near Valle Crucis where he suffered a weakness in his legs. They came home and he was admitted to Gaston Memorial Hospital for tests, reports The Charlotte Observer’s Joe DePriest. Beach said family members were by his side and that things “don’t look good.” He died at noon. A former Gaston County commissioner, the Republican lawmaker was first elected to the Senate in 1990. This year, he became deputy Senate leader.
Forrester was a leading proponent of the successful campaign to place on anti-gay marriage amendment on North Carolina’s ballot. Last month he was exposed as having published false medical credentials on his website and in his campaign materials.

It’s for people like him & Rev. Jerry Falwell is why I, as an atheist, regret there’s no hell for ‘hem.
And from Joe’s blog, here are some of the best comments I’ve found so far:
