WASHINGTON, D.C., December 17, 2010 ( – A homosexual president is the next step in America’s march towards civil rights in the same vein as “when we dealt with the race issue,” former US president Jimmy Carter has speculated.

The former Democrat president shared his thoughts on the direction of his old office in an interview with the website Big Think.

“I don’t know about the next election, but I think in the near future,” said Carter, referring to the possibility of a homosexual president.

“Step-by-step, we have realized that this issue of homosexuality has the same adverse and progressive elements as when we dealt with the race issue 50 years ago, or 40 years ago,” he said. “So I would say that the country is getting acclimated to a president who might be female, who might, obviously, now, be black, and who might be as well a gay person.”

Despite his backround as a Southern Baptist, Carter has established himself as a firm supporter of the gay agenda. In 2007 the former president urged the US military to repeal the ban on open homosexuals in the service.
