Well, here's a shock.

Hagar -- the Bush appointee to the Advisory Committee for Reproductive Health Drugs in the Food and Drug Administration -- you remember him? The one who wouldn't hire gay folk and who wouldn't prescribe birth control for unmarried women, and who thought women with PMS should just read the Bible to fix their problem? The one opposed to letting the FDA approve Plan B, the emergency contraception pill, because he believes it causes abortions? (It prevents a fertilized egg, if one is present, from implanting. If that's abortion, then so are all methods of birth control except barrier methods -- oh, yes, and abstinence.)

Well. Color me surprised. Dr. Hagar, who has issues with letting women control their own bodies, has all sorts of other control issues -- he apparently raped and sodomized his wife for years, sometimes in her sleep; sometimes he paid her for sex. He also made her account, each evening, for every penny she spent, berating her if she spent money he thought she shouldn't have. (This, from a man who is paying this same wife $2000 for a blow job.)

And then he stands in front of good, Godly people -- like Concerned Women for America -- and talks about how God has led him to his position of power.

And they suck it up with a straw.

I no longer qualify my opinion that every one of these people is gay, or at least bisexual. They will do anything to suppress their homosexual desires. This is not to say that heterosexual couples do not have anal sex--of course they do--but in the case of these right-wing gay-bashers, it is suppression that is going on. The homoerotic stuff about Jesus and the obsession with anal sex tell you everything. Anal sex with a sleeping woman kind of says it all.
