Dana Rohrabacher: It's OK to Not Sell Homes to Gay People

Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) lost the backing of the National Association of Realtors this week after the 15-term congressman said it was acceptable to not sell homes to gay people. Earlier this month, Rohrabacher told the Orange County Association of Realtors that “every homeowner should be able to make a decision not to sell their home to someone (if) they don’t agree with their lifestyle,” as recounted by one of the attendees. The National Association of Realtors is against discrimination based on “sexual orientation or gender identity,” according to its code of ethics. “It’s sad to see (NAR’s) priority is standing in solidarity with making sure a stamp of approval is put on somebody’s private lifestyle,” Rohrabacher said in response.
