Interesting conundrum

Don't harsh my zen, Jen!
At the very moment conservative politicians are running away from the gay, Religious Right activists are becoming more extreme. For example, Linda Harvey exemplified the radicalism this week on her radio show: "We could also close down homosexual bars and bathhouses, that would be a start. God never created people to engage in these unnatural acts."

Tony Perkins, leader of the Family Research Council, a certified Southern Poverty Law Center Hate group, attacked President Barack Obama last week for his participation in Dan Savage's "It Gets Better Project," which is designed to keep bullied LGBT youth from committing suicide.

"It's disgusting," Perkins wrote in a fundraising letter, "And it's part of a concerted effort to persuade kids that homosexuality is okay and actually to recruit them into that ‘lifestyle.'"

The big question: how long will these fringe activists continue to nod and wink, before they think slick politicians like Bachmann and O'Donnell stink?

That Perkins. What a loser.

Anyway - how long can the Bachmanns pretend they didn't spend their entire lives - well, the author says it better than I ever could.

For her entire political career Michele Bachmann practically walked around in a black robe and slammed LGBT people over the head with a gavel. Now this modern day Anita Bryant suddenly isn't judgmental? Bachmann's incredible copout is about as believable as Joan Rivers running for president and suddenly claiming that she never told jokes.

Who gives a fuck about gay rights? Let the deviates stay in their bars and stop whining. The dems always have to have "protected class" groups that are "more equal than the others".

Coxuckers and rug munchers have it ass-backwards.
