The 'gay agenda'

Posted By on Sat, Oct 11, 2008 at 5:03 PM

Andrew DeMillo's weekly analysis turns to the Family Council's going all-gay-bashing-all-the-time in its campaign to throw up additional roadblocks to adoption and foster parenting. He thinks Gov. Mike Beebe's emergence on the issue -- and generally against Initiated Act 1 -- is a sign the Family Council can be beaten. Hope so. And a tip of the hat, again, to Beebe for stepping up.

But I do have one question for reporters to ask Jerry Cox, who's waving the sexual bloody shirt to appeal to prejudice -- no matter the harm to children and no matter the scientific testimony that refutes him. What is this "gay agenda" exactly? After equal treatment under the law -- boy, that's perverted -- what is it? Please be specific.

You gotta love how Cox thinks Arkansas Advocates for Children and Families is a "pro-gay group," except when it comes to opposing the state lottery, as he does. Then they're just red-blooded God-fearing Amuricans just like ol' Jerr.

But, hey, Jerry, maybe you better put in a call upstairs. What if opposition to the lottery is part of the "gay agenda"?
