The MRC's Tim Graham spent a significant part of his Memorial Day weekend in anti-gay freakout mode, as he is wont to do.
In a May 27 NewsBusters post, Graham ranted about "promoting homosexuality in comic books and strips now that President Obama has un-closeted his long-obvious support for gay marriage," and that a Washington Post article on the subject didn't include "conservatives who thought it was a bad idea." Graham goes on to play the Depiction-Equals-Approval Fallacy card:
In other words, ["Funky Winkerbean" creator Tom] Batiuk feels "we have to" ... proselytize. He told The Huffington Post "It shows promise that this emerging generation will one day bring this cultural war to an end. Until then, this story is an attempt to reach across the divide and speak to the intolerance that still exists on the other side." In other words, liberals seek to "reach out across the divide" and tell conservatives to shut up and get with the new "relevance."
Graham is clearly uncomfortable with that truth about anti-gay activists like him being revealed for what it is.
In a May 28 post, Graham was offended that a child appearing on Ellen DeGeneres' show said he hoped that Barack Obama wins re-election because Obama "said that men and men can marry each other and woman and woman can marry each other and I think that’s right." He then attacks the child's parents for feeding the child's "recitation of liberal mantras":
Rainer and Atticus are liberally raised by their literary parents Matt Pasca and Terri Muuss. (The little fact they use their mother's surname signals the feminism.) Muuss is a survivor of incest and travels with her own stage show called "Anatomy of a Doll." She touts herself as "an actor, poet, teacher, director, and social worker."
Shouldn't we also assume that Graham's children are spouting the conservative mantras he has drilled into them?
