Of course, on the Left he's the new Harriet Tubman or something because he sleeps with men instead of women. But then, as CNN is supposed to be network that tries to stay "neutral" on the issues, is there any way this guy can do his job without some pro-gay bias along with some smearing Christianity at the same time? Oh goodie, Newsbusters reports that he already does just that:
Lemon has a history of pro-gay bias at CNN, featuring soft interviews of pro-gay figures and hinting that Christian churches preach the same hateful message against homosexuality that the fringe Westboro Baptist Church promotes – "God hates fags."
Last June, Lemon hosted former Army Lt. Dan Choi for a softball interview along with another homosexual activist. Choi became a poster boy for the gay-rights movement and the repeal of "Don't Ask Don't Tell" when his open declaration of his sexuality sent him packing from the military. "Was it worth the prize for speaking out?" Lemon asked Choi of his honorable discharge from the Army.
Twice last summer, Lemon hosted the same-sex couple who was the subject of CNN's slanted documentary "Gary And Tony Have A Baby" and was sympathetic to their cause. Once he asked them if they were "role models" for the gay-rights movement. "How much pressure are you feeling with so much attention for your experience? Do you feel like the gay community, in many ways, view you guys as role models?"
He also featured former NBA player John Amaechi in 2007, who publicly came out as a homosexual after his career. Lemon asked Amaechi if the NBA is "mature" enough to handle an openly-gay player. "Do you think that the NBA now is ready for a player who may be out while they're playing? Do you think the league is mature enough to handle that?"
During a segment in March with ex-Catholic priest Fr. Alberto Cutie, Lemon outlandishly hinted that Christian churches preach the same hateful message against homosexuality that the fringe Westboro Baptist Church touts, whose website reads "God hates fags."
"So father, listen, do you consider Westboro – most people don't consider it a legitimate church, okay? But is this – aren't they saying the same thing that's reinforced by religion that's being preached from the pulpit in many churches on Sunday?"
