The Men's Bathroom Hypocrite

The Men’s Bathroom Hypocrite

And the latest Black Sun Shadow Award goes to…Senator Larry Craig.

He has supported a federal constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage. In 1996, Craig also voted in favor of the Defense of Marriage Act, which denies federal recognition to same-sex marriages and prevents states from being forced to recognize the marriages of gay and lesbian couples legally performed in other states.

Craig also has opposed expanding the federal hate crimes law to cover offenses motivated by anti-gay bias and, in 1996, voted against a bill that would have outlawed employment discrimination based on sexual orientation, which failed by a single vote in the Senate.

I know everyone is piling on this guy right now for getting his kicks in the crapper. He soooooo deserves it. Shame is, he’s getting most of the heat from his right flank for letting down the conservatives who hold anti-gay and anti-choice positions. It’s too bad these conservatives don’t take the real lesson, which is that people’s (private) sexual behavior is their own concern.

Every time we see someone’s lips moving about other people’s sexual morality, we should right away be looking in their closet. The list goes on and on and on and on. Maybe Americans will someday tire of this kind of rhetoric–even in Idaho. Glass houses… Rocks…

Come on.
