It appears that the homosexual lifestyle is as addictive as smoking.

— Accuracy in Media (AIM) editor Cliff Kincaid, reasoning that this danger warrants a “Quit Gay Sex” campaign

Media Matters points to an unhinged column by this bottom-feeder that reaches a new low.

Accuracy in Media (AIM) editor Cliff Kincaid argued in a December 14 commentary posted to the right-wing media watchdog website that news organizations should engage in a “Quit Gay Sex” campaign against “the dangerous and addictive homosexual lifestyle,” using as justification for his argument the November “Quit to Live” anti-smoking campaign launched by ABC News after veteran journalist Peter Jennings died of lung cancer. Kincaid argued that news organizations should take up similar campaigns against homosexuality, given that “[l]ife-threatening sexually transmitted diseases among homosexuals are on the increase.”

Kincaid’s yet another example of a winger who thinks a lot about homos and homo-sex more often than honest-to-goodness queer folks. Sort of like, ummmm, Peter LaBarbera (gee, I still haven’t received a response from Peter about my reply to his email). We’re falling down on the task of forcing our Homosexual AgendaTM down America’s throat, people. Sigh.

Media Matters for America has documented a series of statements about homosexuality published by Kincaid through the AIM website, including:* “[Howard Dean’s] success will depend on concealing the facts about Dean’s homosexual experiment [which purportedly “implemented the homosexual agenda” in Vermont] — and how he has used young people as sexual guinea pigs.” [12/10/03]

* “The problem with the [Tucker] Carlson show [on MSNBC] is the format, which places too much emphasis on his guests, including a regular named Rachel Maddow, a radio host on Air America who is described as the first out-of-the-closet lesbian to be named a Rhodes Scholar. She is a lesbian with hair so short that she looks like a man.” [8/1/05]

* “The Washington Post is emerging as a virtual house organ of the homosexual-rights movement.” [7/20/03]
