The Folsom Street Fair in San Francisco celebrated gay pride by featuring men in leather, posing as the disciples of Jesus at the Last Supper with whips, chains and sex toys on a Michelangelo-like table. Gay men bumped and ground each other on floats…as others simulated oral sex.

Similar displays took place in Chicago and Columbus…from men wearing large male member enhancements shaped like cones to “Dykes on Bikes” and other lesbians proudly exposing their breasts. Male transvestites, not to be outdone, also bared theirs.

New York gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino chose not to march in the New York Gay Pride Parade saying, “that’s not the example we should be showing our children.” His opponent, Andrew Cuomo, attended that parade…. and took along his kids.

Students across the nation are being indoctrinated into homosexuality. It’s introduced in every discipline, affirmed by homosexual lecturers, read about in required reading, observed in propaganda films and acted out in plays from “Angels in America” to “The Laramie Project.” Parents who object are silenced and even arrested for trying to protect their children.

Children are being shamed and shunned for any objection to homosexuality. In some schools “tolerance circles” are used. Those who agree that homosexuality is good get to form a circle. Those opposed stand in the middle to be ridiculed.

Carl Paladino said at an Orthodox Jewish gathering in Brooklyn, “I just think my children and your children would be much better off and much more successful getting married and raising a family, and I don’t want them brainwashed into thinking that homosexuality is an equally valid and successful option…it isn’t.”

Paladino later added, ”I oppose the homosexual agenda, whether they call it marriage, civil unions or domestic partnership. Marriage is between a man and a woman- period.”

Mr. Cuomo said Paladino’s “statement displays a stunning homophobia and a glaring disregard for basic equality.”

In liberal New York, Cuomo is a hero and Paladino falling in the polls.

Even conservative pundits have distanced themselves from Paladino. "Racism" used to be the most dreaded charge in political discourse. "Homophobia" is taking its place. Let's call it homophobia-phobia: a fear of the mere accusation.

This fear is causing otherwise bright political observers to prove their “tolerance” by attacking those they might actually agree with. They rush to join the homosexual lobby’s clever truth-twisting at the expense sometimes of common sense and deeply held convictions. Better to join the mob in criticizing Paladino than face the humiliation of being thought of as "homophobic"!
