Concerned Women for America: Keep the Bigotry Subtle

You can't make stuff like this up. Per a press release from Concerned Women for America:

CWA Calls Former NBA Star’s Comments Harmful 2/16/2007

Washington, D.C. — A former NBA star has made disturbing and harmful comments about his feelings toward people trapped in the homosexual lifestyle... Tim Hardaway said that he “hates gay people” and that he distances himself from them because he is “homophobic.” Concerned Women for America (CWA) is disappointed that a man who is respected by many sports fans would make such inflammatory remarks.

“Hardaway’s comments are both unfortunate and inappropriate,” said Matt Barber, CWA’s Policy Director for Cultural Issues. “They provide political fodder for those who wish to paint all opposition to the homosexual lifestyle as being rooted in ‘hate...’

“It’s perfectly natural for people to be repelled by disordered sexual behaviors that are both unnatural, and immoral... Hardaway’s comments only serve to foment misperceptions of widespread homosexual ‘victimhood’ which the homosexual lobby has craftily manufactured.”

Right. Hardaway's comments are bad because they demonstrate that there are people who hate gays, and that contradicts the CWA.

One thing bigots hate is having their bigotry made clear.
