Besides being a paranoid right-winger, Sandy Rios is a conservative radio personality, Fox News contributor (of course), and the president of the conservative political action group Culture Campaign. She is also a member of the American Family Association. On her Tuesday radio show, she expressed horror at President Obama's signing of the Executive Order barring discrimination (by federal contractors) against LGBT persons in the employment arena. She stated that President Obama had become a 'rock star' with the LGBT community because of his successes with our causes. And, she warned her audience that they might get a visit from male FBI agents wearing dresses.

Aside from the fact that she seems to be confusing trans persons with cross dressers, the whole thing is ridiculous. But, I guess it's just the thing that would horrify her audience. And, I guess it was bad enough that the President wanted to protect gays and lesbians in employment, but he really went overboard by adding the T's in there too. And, in the wake of such actions, how could he possibly be a 'real' Christian?

From Right Wing Watch:

Sandy Rios was horrified by President Obama’s decision to sign an executive worker ensuring that federal contractors don’t discriminate against LGBT employees, and had a stark message for her listeners on her Tuesday radio program: “That means of course that maybe in six weeks or so maybe your doorbell will ring and you will have the privilege of being interviewed by an FBI agent male wearing a dress, because that’s really what this does mean, this is stunning.”

Rios, the American Family Association’s government affairs director, alleged that Obama is a “rock star” for the LGBT community and a phony Christian, claiming that she simply does not believe “the notion that Barack Obama is a Christ follower.”

“I can say I’m a ballerina, it doesn’t make it so,” she said. “A Christian, a Christ follower does not legislate ad nauseam rights and benefits and privileges for people who are in a lifestyle that is at odds with biblical truth, just doesn’t do it. There’s the president of the United States, all about homosexuality.”

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
