Barney Frank Speaks About Closeted Gays In Congress

March 23, 2015

Hypocrisy is the key argument.

But I would take a step further than the political one Frank makes and argue that living life authentically is vitally important to being healthy, and that there is also something most important to be said for holding out a light so to make a path easier for others.

Frank, who is openly gay, has no qualms with these members staying in the closet as long as they are “supportive of legal protections” for homosexuals.

“The issue where they lose me is hypocrisy,” Frank told CNN’s Gloria Borger on Sunday’s “State of the Union.”

“What I think is unacceptable is to vote a certain set of rules as an elected official and then to violate them yourself. But if you are a Democrat, Republican, whatever, and you vote to allow people to do what you do, then I have no demand that you become public,” he said.

    I always love it when one group of people is willing to define what “living authentic” means for another and then threatens to “out” them when they don’t conform to the agenda or plans of the group. I guess being part of the LGBT community does not mean you have one less expectation to conform to, but rather many more. Sad.
