The boy king has nominated Dr. James Holsinger for the post of Surgeon General. As you may know, the Surgeon General’s primary role is to educate the public on health issues using the best scientific information available. And what qualifications does the good doctor have that says he’s the best candidate for the job?
He and his wife are the founders of an anti-gay group that declares being homosexual a “lifestyle choice” that one can walk away from with the help of their “re-education” program. Such conversion type programs have been soundly repudiated by major medical associations including the American Psychological Association for years.
The good doctor has also written a paper where he explicitly attacks homosexual men using the lame “parts fitting together” argument as evidence that sex between men is bad, bad, bad. The paper also explains how this argument is justification for not believing that gay people should be entitled to the same rights and privileges as enjoyed by heterosexuals.
As noted in the Human Rights Campaign’s condemnation of Holsinger’s nomination, “Dr. Holsinger has a record that is unworthy of America’s doctor. His writings suggest a scientific view rooted in anti-gay beliefs that are incompatible with the job of serving the medical health of all Americans. It is essential that America’s top doctor value sound science over anti-gay ideology.”
I couldn’t have said it better myself. Holsinger is a bigot who’s clearly demonstrated that he will twist the crap out of science to get it to align with his unfounded beliefs. He needs to go.
