Brian Tashman, Right Wing Watch :
On Monday, Massachusetts congressman Barney Frank announced that he will not seek reelection next year, and American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fischer decided to celebrate Frank’s retirement by attacking the congressman for being gay. On Focal Point yesterday, Fischer claimed that Frank may have used his prominent position to “influence” other men into becoming gay who may have later contracted AIDS. “This is a dangerous, risky, immoral, unhealthy lifestyle, and Barney Frank has been an open practitioner of a lifestyle that is condemning one young man after another to an early grave,” Fischer said, “this is not somebody to admire, this is not somebody to honor.” Fischer went on to say that Frank “modeled a lifestyle which is really a death-style,” wondering, “Who knows how many people were drawn or encouraged in some way by Barney Frank’s example to dabble in a lifestyle that eventually cost them their health and maybe even cost them their lives.”
I think Tashman has it backasswards. If Barney Frank’s lifestyle is at all malleable, Frank’s long over due retirement will only help to promote the cause of homosexual sodomy. Frank is a angry, demented old man. There is absolutely nothing about Frank which would suggest to anybody that they ought to adopt his chosen lifestyle. The less the public sees of mad and bitter homosexuals, like Frank, the easier it will to to sell the fiction that the homosexual lifestyle should somehow be considered to be normal.
