Got (Problems With) Milk?

Religious Right groups are voicing their opposition to efforts to honor gay rights activist Harvey Milk: “‘What significant contribution did Harvey Milk bring to the state of California – other than encouraging gay people to come out of the closet?’ asked Benjamin Lopez of the Traditional Values Coalition. ‘This is yet another example of them trying to normalize and force acceptance of the gay lifestyle upon people,’ he said … Randy Thomasson, of Campaign for California Children and Families, which opposes AB 2567, said the bill is a new tactic in a long push to portray homosexuality in a positive light to kids. ‘Harvey Milk Day is the equivalent of having Gay Day at every school in the state,’ he said.”
