"We've never had . . . any kind of a homosexual relationship."

Senator James Inhofe, Republican from Oaklahoma, made this little announcement today:

"As you see here, and I think this is maybe the most important prop we’ll have during the entire debate, my wife and I have been married 47 years. We have 20 kids and grandkids. I’m really proud to say that in the recorded history of our family, we’ve never had a divorce or any kind of a homosexual relationship."

Um, Sen. Inhofe, given your quite clear anti-gay stance, I have a question: If one of your kids or grandkids were gay, knowing your views, do you actually think he or she would tell you?

(Hat tip to my Mom, who actually posed that question.)
