Jim Johnson over at Straight, Not Narrow reports on Republicans Making Anti-Gay Pitch to African-Americans while raising some important questions (that he also answers).
At a time when the United States is spending billions of dollars fighting a war on foreign soil; while this nation is still extremely vulnerable to terrorism; when there are millions of people faced with poverty, homelessness, unemployment, hunger; when there are millions of people who do not have access to medical treatment they desperately need; when there are millions of people living within our borders illegally; WHY ARE POLITICIANS AND EVANGELISTS PUSHING THOSE ISSUES ASIDE AND ATTACKING THE GAYS?
And Jim Maynard, a Memphis gay blogger at the very pink Queer Notes who often considers political issues, writes about GOP Election Plan: Flag-Burning, Gay Marriage Amendments.
Here they go again! USA Today reports that Senate Republicans are laying out their election plan and, surprise!, it will be to push for the anti-gay Federal Marriage Amendment and resurrect their old chestnut “anti-flag burning” amendment to the U.S. Constitution, and of course more restrictions on abortion rights.
Let’s see…we are in a “war on terror”, a quagmired military occupation in Iraq, a criminal scandalridden Republican Congress and White House, American workers are falling behind in the “class war,” and these are the issues the Republican Reich think matter the most to American voters!
