Openly gay leaders shouldn't have openly gay sex with other openly gay adults. It looks bad.
Once again: When Bill Clinton lied—under oath—about his affair with Monica Lewinsky, a White House intern, lefties argued that Clinton's lies were understandable and excusable because he had a right—that we all have a right—to keep his private sexual conduct private. Unless a politician is breaking the law (Sen. Vitter, Gov. Spitzer), or guilty of rank hypocrisy (Sen. Craig, Rev. Haggard*), it's no one's business where he sticks his dick.
* Ted Haggard, as head of the 30-million-member National Association of Evangelicals, was as every inch the politician.
