In 2009, talk show host Michelangelo Signorile told Pastor Steve Anderson [who hoped Signorile would get brain cancer and die because he is a homosexual] that he wished Anderson no harm because he [Signorile] upholds "human values". Apparently his "human values" have no room for gay Mitt Romney supporters

Recently, gay talk show host Michelangelo Signorile told a gay Mitt Romney supporter he should kill himself on his SiriusXM radio broadcast. After telling the caller, named "Wes", that Barack Obama was the clear choice for gay rights, Signorile said, "You went and voted for him [Romney]. It would have been much easier to go to the store and buy some arsenic and make a potion and take it. You know what I mean?"
Signorile added, "That would have been much easier than waiting for the slow, painful death that Mitt Romney will bring you,” Signorile continued. “You should not be allowed to vote."
Signorile then concluded by instructing the caller to, "Go to the drug store. There are plenty of things you could get. It’ll put you to sleep really, really easily, because that would be a better way than the convoluted, twisted way you’re [killing yourself]. You’re stabbing yourself in the back."

In Signorile's defense, the caller "Wes" did appear to be either severely braindead or pranking Signorile. Signorile had a point in being appalled that someone who was gay would vote against his own self-interests and choose Romney. My problem with Signorile's behavior toward the caller was that just three short years ago, during an interview with Christian nutball Steve Anderson, Signorile wished no harm to Anderson after Anderson had just wished Signorile would die from brain cancer for simply being a homosexual.
Signorile said to Anderson, "I don't take pleasure in that [Anderson being harmed] because I really do uphold human values."
Apparently Signorile's human values have limits. He has no room for gay Mitt Romney supporters. To Signorile, they are much more of a threat than whackjob pastors who wish death upon Signorile.
