Randy Thomasson is troubled by the "love affair" Democrat
officials of one California city have with a late "gay"
This year, San Diego Democrats pushed hard to honor Harvey Milk
with resolutions that promote the late homosexual politician's work
for the gay community. For example, Congressman Bob Filner (D) and
Senator Christine Kehoe (D) urged the Navy to name a ship after
Milk and pushed the state Senate to approve a resolution urging the
Navy to honor him (see earlier story).
Democrats also passed Assemblywoman Toni Atkins' (D) measure for
a commemorative Harvey Milk stamp, and the San Diego City Council
voted to rename a street after the late homosexual politician.
Randy Thomasson, president of SaveCalifornia.com, says these measures are
twisting Milk's story into something it is not.
"Harvey Milk was not a martyr; he did not die like Jesus did. He
was actually killed by a political rival. It was nothing about
homosexuality," Thomasson explains.
"But Harvey Milk is being pushed as the representative of
homosexuality across the nation by homosexual activists."
The conservative is troubled that public officials are
honoring a man known for his promiscuous lifestyle and his
relationships with underage boys.
"[What] knowledgeable Christians and other morally sensitive
people need to do is get to know what the real Harvey Milk did and
stood for, and tell people, tell others," Thomasson concludes.
