What difference does Frank's sexuality make?

San Luis Obispo



I see Otis Page is still flogging the dead horse of the Homosexual Agenda. There I was reading along about how the Democrats were damaged (“Democrats—and the nation—are damaged,” June 16) when the writer identified “homosexual Barney Frank.” Without even looking at the name of the author, I knew it was our old friend Otis.

I won’t go to the trouble of listing all of the Republicans with similar or worse scandals than the ones of Democrats cited in Otis’ letter. It is not worth the trouble. Oh, on second thought: Delay, Cunningham, Ensign, Foley, Lewis, Burns, Stevens, Craig, Vitter, Sanford, Sessions, Deal, Young, Calvert, Miller, Renzi, and many, many more. Heck, one of the leading Republican candidates for president, Newt Gingrich, is an admitted adulterer who pressured his first wife to sign divorce papers while she was in the hospital with cancer.

But I digress. What difference does it make that Barney Frank is a homosexual, Otis? Except that it allows you to throw the term around as a pejorative.

I know Otis will never get over it, but if we call him on his bigotry every time, maybe someone else will.
