The campaign manager of Colorado State Rep. Marsha Looper accidentally outed her son as gay.

According to The Denver Post, Lana Fore-Warkocz forwarded an e-mail to supporters that praised Looper for voting against a civil unions bill even though her son is gay.

“I'm very, very disappointed,” Looper told the paper. “These are very intimate issues. I love my son. I always will. He has said, 'Mom, I want my privacy.'”

“My opinions, financials and policies are appropriate discussions for the campaign, however my family members' personal lives are not a legitimate avenue for my campaign, or any other campaign to discuss,” Looper said in a statement.

The e-mail praises Looper for successfully amending the civil unions bill in committee “to protect religious organizations and different kinds of counselors from harm for disagreeing with the civil unions provisions had it passed. (Praise God!)”

“God is truly to be praised for Marsha Looper because she has a homosexual son.”

The bill died on the House floor when lawmakers reached an impasse on the measure as the legislative session came to an end. It died a second time in committee during a special session called for by the governor.

Looper has three children: Rachelle, Travis and Justin.
