The folly of “outing”

From WorldNetDaily:

Disclosures that an alleged homosexual escort working for a pro-Republican website was granted access to the White House press room has led to efforts in the nation's homosexual press to "out" top-ranking Bush administration officials and GOP leaders based on uncorroborated, undocumented and unnamed sources.

This is more on the story I earlier reported. Liberals are drooling at this hoping it turns into some kind of dirt they can smear the President with. The question arises, though, as to why they would take stuff they claim is perfectly normal (homosexuality and porn) and then treat it as scandalous?

Even if they somehow “out” a member of the GOP or the administration -- any resulting resignations would be the direct result of their harping, not on any intent to discriminate by the GOP or the President. But, of course, they'll wail and wail and wail until the person resigns, then use that as “proof” of homophobia on the part of the GOP and/or the President

It's not outing for the sake of outing, but outing with the point of ostensibly pointing out one of two things: a) hypocrisy within the right; and/or b) there are more gays than some on the right want to admit.

If either were the reason, it's still doesn't justify what they do to the person -- all in the name of fighting for more rights for the group.

jpe,

Come on now, what's the point of either a. or b.? As for a. no news there, I'm a conservative and realize there are hypocrites on the right too. As for b. though, that's another issue. I find it interesting that these people are willing to crucify this person for the same things they stand for that Jack pointed out in the article. So it seems that the political agenda is more important to the homosexuals than personal freedoms are. Jack is all over this, you'll see over the next few days.
