There's no way the Bushies can turn this into evil . . . ah crap.

Bush has appointed a wanton homophobe onto the Presidential Advisory Commission on HIV and AIDS.

The Bush administration has chosen Jerry Thacker, a Pennsylvania marketing consultant who has characterized AIDS as the "gay plague," to serve on the Presidential Advisory Commission on HIV and AIDS.

. . .In his speeches and writings on his Web site and elsewhere, Thacker has described homosexuality as a "deathstyle" rather than a lifestyle and asserted that "Christ can rescue the homosexual." After word of his selection spread among gays in recent days, some material disappeared from the Web site. Earlier versions located by The Washington Post that referred to the "gay plague," for instance, were changed as of yesterday to "plague."

To be honest, I didn't read the entire article, seeing as I was seething with rage, but I can bet they'll say that they just want to get all sides on the issue, I mean, after all:

Administration health officials speaking on condition of anonymity confirmed Thacker's appointment. They said he was part of a diverse group that includes a member of the board of directors of the Human Rights Campaign, the nation's largest gay and lesbian advocacy group; an AIDS adviser to the World Bank; and a state public health officer.

I know anyone reading this will likely agree with me, but allow me to vent anyway. WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS? If we had a committee on race relations, would you admit Klan members to "get all sides of the issue." Right now, homosexuals are the only group who it's politically expedient to hate unequivocally. The Supreme Court has already voted to allow Boy Scouts to discriminate against gays. And why? Well, hell, we need someone to exploit.

And of course, since our court-appointed administration consists of a bunch of Bible thumpers, they'll point to Christ and say how the Bible says man should not lie with another man, while conveniently forgetting that stuff about giving away possessions, and you know, not killing and shit. Not to mention the whole thing about the Bible condoning slave owning, and all that contradictory stuff that comes about from having multiple writers. And in the meanwhile, poor Jesus. If I were starving myself and standing on mountaintops to try to get people to love each other, son of God or not, if my word is this skewed in less than 2000 years, I'd be mighty pissed.
