Mitt Romney and Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan are included in a list of worst anti-gay villains of 2012.

Romney, the 2012 GOP candidate for president, and his running mate are listed on The Huffington Post's 25 Worst Anti-LGBT Villains of 2012.

Both men were included for their opposition to gay marriage and repeal of “Don't Ask, Don't Tell,” though both have said they would not work to reinstate the ban.

But Romney's and Ryan's opposition pales in comparison to the fiery rhetoric of other foes listed.

Kirk Cameron, who played Mike Seaver on Growing Pains, created a firestorm of protest when he called homosexuality “destructive” to the “foundations of civilization.”

Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy's comments describing marriage equality as “inviting God's judgment on our nation” sparked boycotts, which in turn spurred conservatives to organize a Chick-fil-A appreciation day to support Cathy.

Also on the list is Patrick Wooden, a prominent North Carolina pastor who supported passage of the state's ban on gay marriage by demeaning gay men as being in need of wearing diapers or butt plugs “just to be able to contain their bowels.”

Other notables on the list include Fox News' Mike Huckabee, the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) and Pope Benedict XVI.
