Robert Knight has one regret about his 'USA Today' column #glaadcap

by Jeremy Hooper

Many of you saw Robert Knight's Op-Ed in USA Today and were sickened by his crass attempt to conflate homosexuality with pedophilia. But check this out. Look at the lament that Knight posted on his public Facebook wall:

Yup, that's right—he's sorry he didn't name a convicted pedophile in his column about gay scouts. That's his big regret. He's not sorry that he sidestepped the actual matter of hand so that he could score cheap, animus-laden points. Robert Knight, man still prominent enough to earn Op-Ed slots with mainstream papers, is just sorry he didn't call out a married, straight-identified, Christian, registered Republican from the traditionally masculine world of sport.

Just nasty. This Boy Scouts thing is really reminding America of how far our opposition will go to downright denigrate us. Not even just our rights—but us.
