Those damn liberal homosexual Hollywood-types ...

Those gay cowboys; what were they thinking? Today, the Concerned Women for America expressed their displeasure at the fact that the movie about "male homosexual sheepherders" was spreading "acceptance of homosexuality." CWA also indicated that they were very unhappy with Felicity Huffman for her Golden Globe award-winning role in Transamerica, and at Philip Seymour Hoffman for winning a Golden Globe for best-actor as the raving homosexual Truman Capote. “Once again, the media elites are proving that their pet projects are more important than profit," said Dr. Janice Shaw Crouse, CWA’s Senior Fellow of the Beverly LaHaye Institute. That's right! As long as Hollywood gets to promote gay sex, who cares about capitalism!
