Abraham Lincoln was GAY?


I got this off newsbusters.com I think these people need a good history lesson don't you? Actually if Mr Obama read his history books, Lincoln was going to send the blacks back to Africa. Im not saying I don't like black people at all, Im not prejudice but some of these liberals have gone too far!!!




CBS ‘Early Show’ Claims Abraham Lincoln Was Gay

Jeffrey Sammons, CBS In celebration of the 200th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s birthday on Thursday’s CBS Early Show, co-host Maggie Rodriguez did a segment highlighting five, "...things you may not know about Honest Abe," including his sexual orientation. The segment featured New York University history professor Jeffrey Sammons, who argued: "One of the very interesting stories about Abraham Lincoln is that he might have been gay. Lincoln actually did sleep in the same bed with a gentleman for a four-year period." Rodriguez concluded: "So the question of Abraham Lincoln's sexuality still remains a mystery."

In addition to spreading revisionist rumors about Lincoln’s sexuality, the segment also focused on his racist attitudes as Rodriguez declared: "Myth number two, he was the great champion of equality." Sammons explained: "Lincoln is known as the great emancipator or the great father of black people, but Lincoln was a man of his times when it came to race. He indicated that he did not believe that blacks were equal to whites, said to have used the n-word in speeches and in letters. So there's no indication that Abraham Lincoln believes in black equality."

It is no wonder people have no clue about history with nonsense like this floating around . . . why not learn real history FIRST before delving into imaginary musings?

Just as science is mistaught in schools... so is history. One more reason to homeschool! :-)
