Another Homophobic Bush Nominee

Of James Holsinger, pResident Bush's pick for surgeon general, the NY Times says: The Senate should not confirm a surgeon general who considers practicing homosexuals abnormal and diseased.

Homophobic Holsinger's confirmation hearing "is set for 10 a.m. on July 12 in front of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, according to a statement released Friday. Democrats control the Senate, which must vote to confirm him for the nomination to become official."

Holsinger supports 'ex-gay' therapy. His allies include James Dobson's Focus on the Family and the Heritage Foundation.
