Paul Ryan today said that preventing same-sex marriage is part of America’s “universal human values.” Ryan made these comments to supporters, amid a a three-day bus tour, at a town hall in a steel factory in Cincinnati, Ohio:

“The things you talk about, like traditional marriage and family and entrepreneurship, these aren’t values that are indicative to any one person or race or creed or color. These are American values, these are universal human values.”

Paul Ryan earned a 0% rating from the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the nation’s largest LGBT civil rights advocacy organization. Ryan has a 13% rating from the ACLU, and a 36% rating from the NAACP.

Last year, Congressman Ryan, who is also strongly anti-abortion, voted to ban any federal funds to pay for abortion, and has voted to restrict interstate transportation of minors to get abortions. Ryan, who has a 0% rating from NARAL, voted to prohibit federal funding for Planned Parenthood, and has voted against expanding research to more embryonic stem cell lines.

Paul Ryan has a 90% rating from the anti-gay hate group, Family Research Council (FRC), voting for nine out of the ten actions FRC supported.

Congressman Ryan scored a 100% rating from the Christian Coalition, which includes voting against the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell Repeal Act of 2010,” voting against the funding of ObamaCare, and voting “yes” on the ludicrously-named “Repealing the Job-Killing Health Care Law Act,” the GOP’s signature legislation.

Perhaps the republicans should just adopt a new catch phrase – "Hitler had some good ideas."

The have already adopted Hitlers propaganda methods. Lie about things long enough, loud enough, appeal to prejudice and bigotry, repeat ………………..until people become numb and can't think, …….this also happens to be the model for FOX "News".

WOW! I'm flabbergasted that Paul Lyan 'thinks' treating SOME citizens unequally before the law is a "universal human value" let alone an "American" one.

Another "American Value" is not having the government discriminate against its own citizens.
…or promoting the ideals of liberty and freedom for ALL citizens.
…or the Republican ideal of government non-interference in its citizens' lives.

Maybe this moron should read the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Oh wait, that would require him to actually…I dunno….THINK before he opens his gaping maw.
