The paranoia train is going off the rails with Glenn Beck as of yesterday.
Right Wing Watch also goes ham on Beck’s assertion that nobody today would echo the sentiment that homosexuality is a criminal offense:
Maybe Beck ought to take a look around our archives featuring post after post of contemporary Religious Right leaders calling for homosexuality to be criminalized in America and praisingforeign governments for implementing draconian anti-gay laws in their countries. Heck, even Beck’s best friend David Barton has said that homosexuality should be illegal and regulated by the government.Most ironic of all is the fact that Beck said this while wearing a hat in memory of his good friend Ken Hutcherson, who recently passed away, who was probably best knows for being a vehementlyanti-gayactivist who once called for a ban the promotion of homosexuality.
Because wanting to marry the consenting adult with whom you are in love leads, naturally, to arresting everybody with a piss-ignorant opinion on the matter.
