Fox News contributor Guy Benson is going viral for a video in which he talks about being a gay Christian conservative.
"When it comes to my political beliefs, my orientation is only one part of the story. It's not the totality of who I am," Benson said in the video for Prager University. "Some unimaginative leftists like to believe this qualifies me as a self-hating gay person. This is so boring."
He said people are far too often sorted by their gender, skin color, sexual orientation or other characteristics that have nothing to do with ideas or values.
"Let's debate issues and stop trying to punish 'wrong thinking,'" Benson said. "I'm a Christian, a patriotic American and a free-market, shrink-the-government conservative who happens to be gay. That's how I choose to rank my priorities. You know what that's called? It's called progress."
