The Republican Party has gone to such lengths to demonize homosexuality that it must pain the leadership to reveal that such a thing as a gay Republican congressman could even exist.Does the Washington Post even require its writers to have taken a history course? It's not "the Republican Party" that has "demonize[d] homosexuality"; it's 5000 years of civilized society that has condemned it. Of course, that millenia of human experience condemns homosexuality stands as a rather strong counterpoint to the radical homosexual agenda is a fact that tends to militate against adoption of that agenda.
And never mind that the open secret that was Congressman Mark Foley's perversion never seems to have harmed his standing among his GOP peers until he there was evidence that he apparently started preying on underage Pages.
Another fine example of a far Lefty trying to have it both ways. And that the radical homosexual agenda isn't about tolerance; it's about legislating acceptance and validation. And while intolerance might be categorized as "bigotry," refusing to validate homosexual behavior assuredly is not.
