Sean Spicer, communications director for the Republican National Committee, is quickly creating some distance from a comment by the conservative group the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights.
In the media furor over Democratic pundit Hilary Rosen's controversial comments about Ann Romney having never worked, the Catholic League posted this message Thursday morning on Twitter — deriding Rosen, who is gay, for having "had to" adopt children:
Lesbian Dem Hilary Rosen tells Ann Romney she never worked a day in her life. Unlike Rosen, who had to adopt kids, Ann raised 5 of her own.— Catholic League (@CatholicLeague) April 12, 2012
Later in the afternoon, after the message had received some circulation, Spicer posted this response:
The @catholicleague should be encouraging adoption, not demeaning the parents who are blessed to raise these children— Sean Spicer (@seanspicer) April 12, 2012
