"Seems like there's always a dude on TV, doesn't it? You know, the anti-gay activist who is secretly involved in an apparent pro-gay activity? Last week, it was discovered the Family Research Council's George Rekers recently hired a gay male escort to carry his luggage around Europe. The escort says Rekers wanted him to give him erotic massages. (Rekers denies he is gay). But Rekers' story is very similar to that of pastor Ted Haggard, whose story was like Sen. Mark Foley's, whose story was like Gov. Jim McGreevy's, whose story was like ... well, you get the picture. It's as if being anti-gay is the new coming out."

-- ESPN.com senior writer and columnist LZ Granderson in a piece written for CNN. Granderson is openly gay and has guest posted at TBP as well.

Suspicions confirmed! Like Carl Jung said, "The things that irritate us about others is often a reflection of ourselves."

No doubt this is true....I bet there is a 90% chance the anti-gay homophobes are closeted gays...(others just mean and/or stupid)
