Barney Frank’s knickers were in a knot when he criticized Obama’s choice of Rick Warren to give the Inaugural invocation. There’s no reason he or anyone else should be surprised. Militant Gay Rights Activists, predominantly white, are pushing private cultural and personal choices into the government agenda.
Barack Obama is opposed to gay marriage and so are the 70 percent of blacks and Hispanics who voted for Proposition 8 in California.
Rick Warren drew a hearty round of applause when he loudly proclaimed: “I love Lesbians, gays, straights, Hindus, and Jews”… The entire litany. Why do people like Barney Frank and the audience he plays to believe that every difference of opinion is rooted in bigotry? It’s political manipulation and demagoguery of the worst sort and it adds rather than subtracts from the struggles of gay Americans.
