Circus of Heaven

Just now CNN did a report about Gene Robinson. They were interviewing someone - I didn't catch who as I was only half paying attention. It may have been his partner, or a friend, or a colleague, or maybe a gay rights advocate, or simply a supporter. I guess the point is that it was someone "on his side" though I never caught the connection.

Right in the middle of the interview (which wasn't very long), the creepiest thing happened. The anchor said something like "It appears we're getting a lot of criticism for even doing this interview. We're being accused of advocating homosexuality, which we are not doing. We're simply trying to explore this issue."

CNN's switchboard must have lit up like a Christmas tree with angry wingnut callers. Creepy.
