Hanna Rosin writes for the Washington Post:
Opposing the "homosexual agenda," as it's known in their circle, is on the priority list for most Christian conservative groups. But for the Traditional Values Coalition, founded in 1980 by Sheldon and based in Anaheim, Calif., it is a singular obsession. "They're the most active anti-gay group there is," says Chris Anders of the American Civil Liberties Union. "They're the one group out in the trenches, doing door-to-door knocking, hounding members of Congress." This calling has consumed Sheldon since 1972, when as a Presbyterian pastor he learned that a gay rights group had introduced what he calls the "Homosexual Manifesto" at the Democratic National Convention. It was "all in there -- domestic partners, teaching in public schools, they wanted it all," he recalls. "That's when I realized I had to wake up."
The article provides an interesting profile of Sheldon and his daughter, but it ends ominously:
"It's a sleeping giant out there," he says. "We're talking about tens of millions of people. And when they wake up I feel bad for the homosexuals."
What does he expect to happen to the homosexuals? And if it will be so bad for them, why is he engaged in “waking up” this “giant”? Could it be that, whatever he envisions, is something he wants to happen to them? What will he do if things don’t go his way and society grows more and more comfortable with gay couples and gay marriage?
