Hate-Cow Linda Harvey of the batshit Christianist organization Mission America interviewed the equally bigoted and hateful head of the American Family Association’s Michigan chapter, Gary Glenn. Together the went on to wax demonically about how the ‘Religious Right’ should respond to recent gay rights victories. At one point Glenn went on a rant about how companies should not hire gay employees because of the “severe medical consequences” of being gay.
What ridiculous folly to suggest that only those individuals who engage in homosexual behavior given all of its severe medical consequences constitute the best and the brightest. It’s not really bright to engage in behavior that puts you at dramatically higher risk of mental illness and substance abuse and AIDS and cancer and hepatitis, and according to various sources, premature death. So to suggest that engaging in that type of behavior defines someone as the best and brightest, which seems to be the line coming out of corporate America, is just ridiculous.
Religious Right Watch has the audio if you’re in the mood for getting your hackles up.
