Harper Collins' chief marketer, Jonathan Burnham, hired a fanatical homophobe, Lynn Vincent, to write Sarah Palin's book for her. Jonathan Burnham - wait for it - is an openly gay man. Here's Vincent's piece hailing the attempt to reverse marriage rights for gay couples in California. Money quote:
The 14th Amendment equal-protection argument in favor of gay marriage already is trampling First Amendment rights to religious exercise and free speech.
In March 2006, for example, the 103-year-old adoption division of Boston Catholic Charities (BCC) decided to close its doors rather than comply with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts' requirement that it place children with homosexual couples. Five months later, the group's San Francisco branch followed suit. Both moves were direct outgrowths of the legalization of gay marriage and domestic partnerships in Massachusetts and California.
Politico quotes Burnham's author thus:
"In decades past, men and women routinely brushed off fleeting thoughts of homosexual behavior. Now, though, gay activists have succeeded in planting a seed that says people not only can but should follow such thoughts with exploration and action," Vincent warned last year.
Her former co-author, Robert Stacy McCain, as Dish readers will know, is one of the most hateful homophobes in the blogosphere.
