The Morning After: “Decadent” Gay Lifestyle Edition
* FOX News is concerned that the inauguration will just be one big, gay party. In a sea of boring inaugural coverage, it's S.E. Cupp for the win! Drink this in, sinners:
But the gay-themed events have some conservative critics expressing concerns that while the celebration may be gay-friendly, it won't be family-friendly.
Jennifer Giroux, founder and president of Women Influencing the Nation, a group that focuses on restoring traditional family values, said, “I think (the) inauguration should be kept away from that. Christians may love the individual, but they are offended by the gay lifestyle. It’s unhealthy—spiritually, emotionally and physically.
"It’s not a day where a group that feels like it has some payback coming should be putting its decadent lifestyle on display.”
Peter LaBarbera, president of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality, an organization that describes itself as "devoted exclusively to exposing and countering the homosexual activist agenda," is worried less about what happens in public and more about what may go on behind closed doors.
“I think most Americans would be put off if they knew what went on at these parties," LaBarbera said. "Every special interest group has a ball of some sort, but this is not just any special interest group. More than half the country considers their behavior immoral.”
