Lindsey Graham Should Make History: Become First Openly Gay Senator

By Robert Paul Reyes


"Some whack job named William Gheen, who`s the head of the conservative, anti-`amnesty,` anti-illegal immigration group Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC), gave a speech at a Tea Party in South Carolina this weekend and demanded that Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) to `come out of that log cabin closet.`

lindsey grahamGheen believes that being a homosexual is `a secret that Lindsey Graham has.`

`I hope this secret it isn`t being used as leverage over Senator Graham, so today I think Senator Graham, you need to come forward and tell people about your alternative lifestyle and your homosexuality. Barney Frank is more honest and brave than you,` Gheen shouted to a rapt audience of Tea Baggers." Read More

Prior to Gheen`s controversial speech, I had never heard of the man. I hate to give the nutjob any more publicity, but I find this story very interesting.

Gheen believes that he can discredit Graham in the Bible Belt state of South Carolina by stating that the moderate Republican senator is a closet homosexual. Of course the homophobic tea baggers were delighted with Gheen`s speech. The ignorant tea party members equate homosexuality with degenerate behavior. One more proof, as if any more evidence is needed, that tea partiers are racist and homophobic.

Senator Graham`s sexual orientation shouldn`t matter, his constituents should only worry about the job he is doing. Having said that, I am certain that Graham is a homosexual, and I wish he would come out of the closet.

I don`t have any proof that Graham is gay, I haven`t hear him hum any Broadway show tunes or declare that he`s a big fan of Glee. It`s just a vibe I get, and I have never been wrong when it comes to guessing a person`s sexuality.

If Graham is gay, he should come out of the closet. I don`t have any respect for a gay man or a lesbian who is in the closet. It`s the freakin` 21st century, be proud of who you are!
