And the other shoe drops...

I was really wondering how long it would take for one "wingnut" or another to start linking lesbians with the whole Foley mess. Seems I didn't have to wait long, lol. According to the wonderfully sarcastic Pam Spaulding, Mission America's spokeswoman Linda Harvey has issued yet another ridiculous manifesto in the wake of the latest Foley developments.

Harvey begins with a sort of, "well, duh," statement, in which she restates that Foley is a homosexual and then makes the link between being gay and being a pedophile. She even uses the phrase, "sexual fascism," to describe any attempt to leagalize same-sex marriages...all leading up to what she really wants to tell us poor, unguided souls...

"...Open or suspected homosexuals should never be elected. The problem with
homosexuals is that they frequently don't have common sense and don't
acknowledge appropriate boundaries. Weird sex, public displays of "affection"
and nudity, and sex with youth are built into the "gay" sub-culture. Witness any
pride parade, stroll around any predominantly "gay" neighborhood, or visit
"GLBT" websites and you quickly see the problem. "

**Suspected homosexuals? I suppose a return to the Salem era, complete with 'bitch' trials and public executions is next. While the thought of Ms. Harvey "reducing" herself to visit the parades, neighborhoods and websites mentioned is somewhat amusing (rolling my eyes...yeah, that happened), her suppositions are so sophomoric that they defy common sense. And, speaking of people not having common sense, I would venture to say that the same behaviors and practices she lists can be found in the "straight" sub-culture as well.**

"...We are insane to allow suspected or open homosexuals to assume positions as
public officials, pastors, teachers, camp counselors or coaches. Then there are
the Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts. The Girl Scouts have caved on this, as lesbians
now are common among leadership."

And there you have it, ladies...lesbians are now child molesters too. Looking beyond the Girl Scouts, the implications of what this imbecillic being is spouting here are incredibly far-reaching. I suppose that if you're a parent who happens to be gay, forget coaching little league. Oh, and if you were interested in becoming a teacher one day...forget that too. You'd be endangering far too many poor, impressionable young minds.

**If I roll my eyes any more emphatically, I just might throw myself out of my chair.**

Honestly, though, we should thank Ms. Harvey for sharing her drivel with the rest of us. How else would we be able to prove that such ignorance exists?
