Wash. Times’ Kuhner: Rep. Tammy Baldwin Is “Barney Frank In A Dress”

In an October 17 Washington Times column, titled “Radical lesbian knocking on Senate door,” Jeffrey Kuhner called openly gay Senate candidate Rep. Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis) “Barney Frank in a dress” accusing her of being a “militant anti-Christian zealot” who wants to “advance the destructive sexual revolution of the 1960s.” Kuhner also railed against homosexuality, calling it “immoral and unnatural”:
Wisconsin’s voters are poised to break new ground on the cultural front: electing the first openly lesbian U.S. senator. This would mark a watershed for the homosexual movement — and a major blow against traditional America.
Ms. Baldwin has made no secret of her lesbian lifestyle. She is a vocal supporter of gay pride and the LGBT community. She told the liberal Huffington Post that her Senate candidacy is historic. Ms. Baldwin stressed that “breaking through these glass ceilings has a ripple effect.” In other words, her election would — and should — encourage other avowed gays and lesbians to enter high office.
Every major religious faith teaches that homosexual behavior is immoral and unnatural. This is not “hate speech” or “homophobic.” It is the natural moral order. This is why gay “marriage” is wrong and pernicious. It undermines the basic family unit whereby a mother and a father procreate, raise and socialize children. The traditional family is the cornerstone of a functioning, healthy society. Its dissolution leads to countless social pathologies — increased child abuse, higher rates of drug addiction and alcoholism, soaring violence and rampant teenage promiscuity. Redefining marriage is akin to redefining gravity. It is a senseless act of hubris and social engineering that is bound to fail. In the end it is the children who pay the price.
Mr. Thompson is a Catholic. He does not wear his faith on his sleeve, yet he should confront Ms. Baldwin about her socialist feminism. Wisconsin’s electorate needs to know just how far out of the mainstream she really is. The last thing they need is Barney Frank in a dress.
