Like that scent I couldn't get out of the cranberry futon in college no matter how much I shellacked it with Febreeze, Joe the Plumber keeps offending my senses when I least expect it.
This time it's the gays. In a pander-y interview with Christianity Today
(a known bastion of progressive thinking) Joe takes bigotry to heights Fred Phelps could appreciate. The horror: "People don't understand the dictionary--it's called queer. Queer means strange and unusual."
Somehow, Joe, I don't think Noah Webster had gays in mind as he pieced together his great lexicographical work. No, the term was corrupted by ignoramuses like you. Novel logic, though.
"I've had some friends that are actually homosexual. And, I mean, they know where I stand, and they know that I wouldn't have them anywhere near my children."
Joe's definition of friendship with gays: Having briefly spoken to or shared the same air with a gay person momentarily. Gee, they must be flocking have beers with "The Plumber." 'Hey, I'm having a barbecue this weekend, but you can't come. You're gay and my children will be there. Sorry.'
Oh, and he's not sure if he'll run for public office. God hasn't told him to...yet. For the rest of JTP's uninformed inanity, follow the link
