Jimmy LaSalvia of GOProudWhy Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor of course!

GOProud head Jimmy LaSalvia has added his signature to an open letter calling Senate Republicans to filibuster Judge Sotomayor. The other signatories are a distinguished group to be sure, including a number of luminaries in the anti-gay movement, including:

Gary Bauer, American Values
Tom Minnery, Focus on the Family
Wendy Wright, Concerned Women for America
Donald E. Wildmon, American Family Association
Rev. Rick Scarborough, Vision America
Rev. Louis Sheldon, Traditional Values Coalition
Andrea Lafferty, Traditional Values Coalition
Linda Harvey, Mission America
Sandy Rios, Culture Campaign
Peter LaBarbera, Americans for Truth
Brian Camenker, MassResistance
Kris Mineau, Massachusetts Family Institute
Gary Glenn, President, American Family Association of Michigan
Diane Gramley, American Family Association of Pennsylvania
Don Feder, Feder Associates, Massachussetts
Janet M. LaRue, Esq., Jan LaRue Consulting, Texas
Larry Cirgnano, Virginia
Janet Parshall, Nationally Syndicated Talk show Host

GOProud, or the Log Cabin Republicans Part Deux, hopes to be more successful than their predecessors in moving the gay conservative agenda forward, whatever that is.  While I desparately try not to think them as self-hating homosexuals, bent over and enjoying a reach around by the social conservatives who drive the agenda of their party (have I said that before), it’s sometimes hard to think otherwise by the company they keep.
