Closeted politicians stir filmmaker's 'Outrage'

There are 1 comment on the story from Jun 5, 2009, titled Closeted politicians stir filmmaker's 'Outrage'. In it, reports that:

Of the many insinuations in "Outrage," Kirby Dick's sad, devastating new documentary about closeted gay politicians - OK, alleged closeted gay politicians - the one that's most disturbing is the case made against a former Southern congressman.

As a young liberal, the politician used his fraternity house "as his gay bar," a former alleged hookup tells the filmmakers. Yet in pursuit of elected office, the politician got married, went to church, and voted Republican, never quite shaking his same-sex attraction but never doing much legislatively to acknowledge or advance the civil rights of gay people. On numerous occasions, in fact, he voted to suppress those rights.

Such alleged hypocrisy is the crux of "Outrage." Dick speculates on the homosexuality of several current and former public officials which hasn't been corroborated by the men themselves.

When politicians and religious leaders support complete hypocrisy, then they need to be "outed," chucked out of office! Start with Congress and the Catholic church!
