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"?

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
