Angle on gay adoption, role of clergy

The Associated Press got a hold of a four-page questionnaire Nevada Senate candidate Sharron Angle (R) submitted to the group "Government is not God," in which Angle weighed in on gay adoption.  

Angle said she believes members of the clergy should be permitted to endorse political candidates from the pulpit and said that she is an opponent of gay adoption.

From the AP:

Angle says she would oppose making sexual orientation a protected minority in civil rights laws. And she opposes any federal regulation of public or private education.

In a section on school prayer, she affirms that students and teachers should be able to talk openly about religion — including the right to "publicly acknowledge the Creator."

Angle is running against Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and has come under increasing fire in recent days from Democratic critics over comments on religion and on the role of women.

Earlier Thursday, Reid was backed by Lois Tarkanian, the mother of one of Angle's Republican primary opponents, Danny Tarkanian.
