It's not very often that I remove a blog from the blogroll for something other than inactivity. Unfortunately, today is not the case. I'm removing Kenn Gividen's blog after a reader pointed out the homophobic posts on his front page. The former Libertarian candidate for governor shares insights like this clip from his top post: Gay marriage deadlier than smoking
- The gay agenda is dangerous
Encouraging young people to explore the behavioral options is an invitation to an early grave.
If accepted, lawmakers may sympathize with insurance companies who view the gay lifestyle as a liability more serious than smoking or skydiving.
- Exit counseling
Programs to help gays abandon homosexuality will be seen as important life-saving efforts.
Other posts try to "debunk" Richard Florida's "The Rise of the Creative Class" (although he refers to him as George Florida) or, my favorite, immigrants are to blame for increases in HIV infections and cocaine abuse in Sweden. I'm surprised that gays and lesbians weren't involved somehow.
I am, however, happy to say that I'm making a substitution. Somehow I neglected to add Mike Kole's blog Kole Hard Facts of Life to the blogroll - even though he's guest posted here on bilerico! D'oh! Mike was the Libertarian candidate for Secretary of State in the last election and I know he defends our rights. I've added his site and encourage all of you to check it out. He posts frequently and is an all around nice guy. If you came to any of the grassroots meetings, you probably saw him there.
So consider this a primary election. And I just voted out the incumbent.
