New York, July 12 ANI | 4 months ago

Newly uncovered With House tapes have revealed that Richard Nixon had a relatively progressive attitude towards the gay community.


The 37th president of US admitted in the audio recordings posted by Vanity Fair, that gays are "born that way" but also called being homosexual "a problem", the New York Post reported.

Nixon said that he was the most tolerant person when it came to gay rights but also feared that being too tolerant could mean the fall of civilizations, just like the Romans and Greeks.

He further added that once a society moves in that direction, the vitality goes out of that society and that's certainly been the case in antiquity because Romans were notorious homosexuals.

The new recordings also revealed that Nixon did not wanted to touch the gay "lifestyle" or voice anything that could be viewed as supportive of homosexuals, who apparently brought down the Greek Empire before laying waste to Rome.
