headline of the day award

It's early, but I know this won't be topped.

The Headline of the Day Award goes to the Christian Civic League, which tells its readers: Collins and Michaud Out-Gay Allen and Strimling

In the piece, CCL Record writer Mike Hein takes issue with US Rep Mike Michaud's vote last week against the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) because it doesn't include protections for transgendered people. (Tom Allen voted for it.)

"Out-gay-ing" Strimling is pretty hard, Hein tells us. After all: "Maine Democrat State Senator Ethan Strimling has announced earlier this year his intention to fill the Congressional seat vacated by Allen.  Strimling is viewed by many to be the most "gay-friendly" of the candidates for Congress.  He has recently called traditional marriage supporters "forces of evil" and had a "Coming Out Party" fundraiser at a homosexual bar in Ogunquit."
