Got a sweet tooth? Looking for a delicious dish this morning? Look no further than Sirius XM, where adept radio host Michelangelo Signorile serves up vehement anti-gay North Carolina state Senator James Forrester his ass on a platter. The results are both sweet and savory and too good to pass up! (Details and video follow.)
Because of this, Signorile invited the state senator to explain his position. Forrester should have declined the invitation.
Signorile summarizes the below interview, writing:
This interview has to be heard to be believed: Forrester not only could not back up his claims with any evidence -- after first trying to source the Centers for Disease Control, only to be debunked by me -- but he actually acknowledged that he could be wrong. He eventually credited a Christian activist named Frank Turek (who is associated with Maggie Gallagher and the National Organization for Marriage) as his source of this bogus public health information. Forrester had said in his town hall some of his patients were gay men who died early deaths, yet didn't seem to know anything about public health, including that, on a global level, AIDS drastically affects heterosexuals more than gay men. Later, he couldn't answer why he wasn't proposing a divorce ban if his goal is to save marriage, and couldn't explain why gays harm marriage.
