Has anyone seen the front cover of Time Magazine this week? It features a photo of Democrat presidential candidate, Pete Buttigieg, and his male husband or wife, I’m not sure which.
Let me be very clear on one issue. I have no problem with gay people. I know from considerable experience that it is a genetic trait, not a choice. My brother-in-law’s wife’s bothers are both gay, and her twin sons are gay. One of her brothers is a staunch Republican and is as reliable a conservative as you would ever want to meet. I have known many fine gay people who are top notch individuals.
Our current ambassador to Germany, Richard Grenel,l is gay. I have heard him on Fox News many times. I would vote for him to go the House or Senate in a heartbeat. He is bright, articulate and spot on with all the issues.
So why does this Time Magazine cover get under my skin? If the cutting edge of your presidential campaign is that you are gay, and if all can you do is stuff that down our collective throats, you can go pound salt. People like that have don’t have any place in high public office. All they are going to do, once elected, will be to advocate for their special interest group. Everybody else will be pushed to the side.
My late mother got roped into to a long term subscription to Time. In her diminished state, she kept renewing his subscription until it go up to almost 10 years. I get the thing every week, and it gives me a good exposure to the left wing media. Time, Mother Jones and Rolling Stone – they are all the same. You can’t trust anything they print unless you can verify it elsewhere.
