Bob McDonnel's Proclamation: The Gay Angle

Now that the governor has found it within his heart to proclaim April "Confederate History Month" even though they fought for "an evil, vicious and inhumane practice which degraded human beings to property, and it has left a stain on the soul of this state and nation" I wonder if the Governor will proclaim June Gay Pride Month. If the governor could overlook the Confederate soldiers who fought for a breakaway republic designed to protect the right to rape, torture and sell slaves he should be able to overlook the gay person's sexuality (Remember, we are talking about the governor's thoughts about homosexuality, which are negative, and not mine. Hence the use of the word "overlook.") If he could find something positive to say about the influence the Confederate soldiers had on Virginians' lives I'm sure he could say something positive positive about the gays' contributions to Virginia.

Just don't hold your breath.
