DescriptionThe newbie senator so far best known for orchestrating that potentially treasonous letter to Iran has turned his attention to the American LGBT community. Interviewed about religious freedom bills across the country by CNN's Wolf Blitzer, Sen. Tom Cotton said that the community should be happy with the kind of discrimination allowed by Indiana's RFRA.

Appearing yesterday on CNN, Senator Tom Cotton (R) urged critics of Indiana’s “religious freedom” law to get “perspective,” suggesting the treatment of LGBT people in Indiana compared favorably to countries where gay people are executed.

“I think it’s important we have a sense of perspective,” Cotton said. “In Iran they hang you for the crime of being gay.”
