Far Right Warns Prez on Pick for Canada Post

"President Bush must realize that after eight years of government promotion of homosexuality under Clinton, Americans are yearning for a return to normalcy and decency," said Peter LaBarbera, of the Americans for Truth Project, in a statement quoted by the gay paper Bay Windows. "We will resist any promotion of the idea that it is aceptable, normal, or healthy for men to have sex with men, or women with women."
