My goodness

Nothing like the subject of AIDS to bring out the gay bashing, I guess. Take a look at this:

The ceremony involved Secretary of State Rice and the swearing in of Mark Dybul, an open homosexual, as the nation’s new global AIDS coordinator — a position that carries the rank of ambassador. An Associated Press photo of the ceremony also shows a smiling First Lady Laura Bush and Dybul’s homosexual “partner,” Jason Claire. During her comments, Rice referred to the presence of Claire’s mother and called her Dybul’s “mother-in-law,” a term normally reserved for the heterosexuals who have been legally married.

The Washington Blade, a pro-homosexual publication in the nation’s capital, was accurate on Friday when it predicted Rice’s remarks would “rais[e] the eyebrows of conservative Christian leaders.” Peter Sprigg, vice president for policy at the Family Research Council, says the secretary’s comments were “profoundly offensive” and fly in the face of the Bush administration’s endorsement of a federal marriage protection amendment, though that backing be less than enthusiastic.

Not just offended, but profoundly offended. The next paragraph is really the crazy one:

“We have to face the fact that putting a homosexual in charge of AIDS policy is a bit like putting the fox in charge of the henhouse,” says Sprigg. “But even beyond that, the deferential treatment that was given not only to him but his partner and his partner’s family by the Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is very distressing.”

Let’s see if I read that right. The problem with putting a fox in charge of a henhouse is that the fox is a fox and will eat the hens, correct? That the fox will do the opposite of the protecting the henhouse? Translating that to gays and AIDS: putting a homosexual in charge of AIDS policy is bad because they wants to spread AIDS, rather than combat it? Yep, that sounds…insane. Really though, the distressing thing is that Rice was being nice to a gay guy. We can’t have that.

Do these people listen to themselves talk? No wonder the White House thinks they’re “goofy.”
