Jimmy LaSalvia is a homosexual liberal columnist for far-left anti-military website Salon.com and political activist for the ACLU. LaSalvia is one of the co-founders of GOProud, a defunct socially liberal political organization that claimed to represent homosexual conservatives yet was nothing more than a group of homosexual liberal Republicans. Despite initially claiming to be a Republican, he has become very outspoken about his hatred for Republicans. LaSalvia has compared Christian activist and family values advocate Tony Perkins to Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke. An ardently militant atheist, he is staunchly opposed to faith-based initiatives and has claimed that "religion has killed more than all diseases combined." In December 2015, LaSalvia announced his support for Hillary Clinton.
