Other than this just being stupid and ignorant, I’ve got to say as much as I love Barney, he’s not exactly the poster boy that any “recruitment campaign” would want to “lure” young men into being gay. An old, balding, rumpled, overworked policy wonk? Right Wing Watch does a helluva job keeping up with these wingtards.
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.”
