It’s funny when Civil Liberties meets the Religious Right– You can be sure that they are going to distort any legitimate Constitutional question into some narcissistic projection of their own Neuroses. You might not be too surprised to learn that All Roads Lead to Homosexual Fears:
Just when it seemed the controversy over high-tech body scanners and “enhanced” pat-down procedures at airports couldn’t get weirder, along comes Eugene Delgaudio, a Loudoun County, Va., lawmaker who claims federal transportation officials were motivated to implement the new procedures by the “homosexual agenda,” not concerns about terrorism.
Delgaudio, a Republican elected to the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors in 1999 and re-elected twice, made that and other comments Nov. 20 in a widely distributed email he sent in his capacity as president of the conservative non-profit group Public Advocate of the United States. Calling the U.S. Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) non-discrimination hiring policy “the federal employee’s version of the Gay Bill of Special Rights,” Delgaudio warned that “the next TSA official that gives you an enhanced pat-down could be a practicing homosexual secretly getting pleasure from your submission.”
