Bigoty bigots cry "bigot!"
Obama Asked To Fire Gay Faith Council Member
Catholic social conservative groups are asking President Obama to fire a gay member of his Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships.
The groups allege that openly gay Harry Knox, director of the religion and faith program at the Human Rights Campaign, the nation's largest gay rights advocate, is a “virulent anti-Catholic bigot.”
Among the signatories to a letter addressed to Obama are Bill Donahue, President of the Catholic League, Chuck Donovan, executive vice president of Family Research Council, Phyllis Schlafly, founder and president of Eagle Forum and Republican House Minority Leader John Boehner.
The groups say Knox is the “hate-filled antithesis” of the Faith Council's objectives.
“Knox is a virulent anti-Catholic bigot, and has made numerous vile and dishonest attacks against the Church and the Holy Father,” the letter says. “He has no business on any Council having to do with faith or religion.”
Backers of the campaign provided U.S. News and World Report Journalist Dan Gilgoff with a list of Knox's alleged offensives. The group's primary objections appear to revolve around Knox's support of the gay and lesbian community, including his defense of a Cheyenne, Wyoming lesbian couple who in 2007 were barred from receiving communion, his criticism of the Vatican's rejection of an United Nations resolution calling for the universal decriminalization of being gay, and his disagreement with Pope Benedict on the efficacy of condoms in controlling AIDS infections.
I could fill pages with the vitriolic hatred spewed by these demonic alleged "Christians," but the point is, NO religious representatives should be pushing government agendas in the first place. These creeps do nothing but spew hatred against gays. They are obviously the ones who should be turned out on their flat asses. Ofc ourse they want deperately to push their agenda, which means banning gays from everything, from government, to marriage to their tacky little bake sales.
Obama's administration is just getting dumber every day. In a TV interview, columnist/author Dan Savage gave him an "F" for gay rights.
I'd at least give him an incomplete, so far. But even paying lip service to these now nearly powerless religulousities is beyond stupid.
