Losing count of gay conservatives

August 26, 2010 - Terry Estep

I'm quickly losing track of all the conservatives who spent their time ranting about the dangers of "the gays" taking over civilization, only to be caught soliciting sex in an airport bathroom or traveling with a hot young man hired to "carry their luggage."

Ken Mehlman, the former head of the Republican National Committee, came out this week and confirmed one of the worst-kept secrets in D.C. by admitting he's gay. He's now turning his political savvy toward achieving marriage equality.

I have enough sympathy to congratulate him for reaching that level of self-acceptance, but not enough to forgive the damage the self-loathing little Quisling did to the gay community when he had actual power. Nearly a dozen states passed amendments blocking gay people from marriage as a result of the RNC's get-out-the-vote efforts he spearheaded.

George Rekers, Ted Haggard, Mark Foley, Larry Craig ... and now Mehlman. At this point, I'm just going to assume anyone railing against "the gay agenda" is  hiding in the closet.

Fred Phelps, whose Westboro Baptist Church travels the nation to picket funerals, no doubt has a closet large enough to hide ten or eleven male prostitutes. Twelve, if one of them helps him move his luggage.
