Penny Starr knows how to cater to the homophobes that read CNSNews.com. Thus, we have a Nov. 21 article from her that carries the headline "Obama Honors Gay Socialist and Lesbian Astronaut" and begins like this:
President Barack Obama on Wednesday awarded the highest honor that can be bestowed on a civilian – the Presidential Medal of Freedom – to 16 people, including a homosexual who led the socialist party in the United States and astronaut Sally Ride, whose partner “outed” her as a lesbian in Ride’s obituary last year.
As far as Starr is concerned, the only possible reason Obama could have honored Bayard Rustin and Ride is because they were gay -- not because of what they achieved (Rustin's civil rights activism, Ride as the first female astronaut).
But that anti-gay obsession serves her well in her job -- her employer does have an anti-gay agenda, after all.
