Anti-Gay AD Campaigner Supports Sodomy Laws
GLAAD Media Round-Up: Same Facts, Different Takes
Alert, August 6, 1998
The GLAADAlert is the weekly activation tool of the Gay & Lesbian
Alliance Against Defamation
Nightline: Forrest Sawyer, substituting as host of ABC's Nightline on
July 30, moderated a debate between Andrew Sullivan, editor the New Republic
and Center for Reclaiming America Director Janet Folger, who engineered the ad
campaign. Sullivan asked repeatedly whether Folger supports laws allowing
imprisonment for having sex with someone of the same gender. After Folger gave
several non-responsive answers, Sawyer pressed, "Ms. Folger, forgive me.
He is asking the direct question, 'Do you support laws that advocate the
imprisonment of people who engage in homosexual behavior?'" Folger
answered, "I guess if you're looking at sodomy laws, there are sodomy
laws on the books that I very much support."
