Media Matters examines long record of gay bashing by the GOP’s favorite paper, the Moonie Times

From Media Matters, on the newspaper of choice for the GOP, the Moonie Times:

The Washington Times’ anti-gay onslaught against Department of Education official Kevin Jennings — which has featured anti-gay rhetoric, falsehoods, and distortions — is only the most recent offense in the newspaper’s long history of publishing anti-gay rhetoric and smears. Media Matters for America has compiled an extensive — though by no means all-inclusive — list of such rhetoric since the late 1980s, including the paper’s warnings against the “gay agenda,” attacks on the possibility of gay men and lesbians serving openly in the military, minimizing of the AIDS epidemic, and attacks on gay relationships and gay rights.

It’s ugly. Really ugly.

FYI: We call it the Moonie Times because the Washington Times was founded by cult leader, Rev. Sun Myung Moon, who continues to own and subsidize the right-wing, homophobic paper.
