I love the fact that all of those bigoted Fox "News" viewers are watching a gay anchor every night when they watch Shep Smith.

This only shows that ones sexual orientation is not a hindrance to success.

I don't socially have many Gay friends,... But I have no problem with them if they keep the "Queerness" to theirself. I don't try to demonize Gays, or avoid Gays,... I treat them like any other friend, who has their own Personal Love Life....
I do think the most under-rated thing on TV is a Gay Male Anchor. I think they are often more interesting, humorous, and honest on air. So I Love Shep & his show, regardless of mainstream acceptance, my or anybody else's religious denominations ideas, or Shep's Sexual Orientation (or lack there-of for that matter)

......."Still I have no problem with them if they keep the "Queerness" to theirself....." Thank you, MARIE ANTOINETTE...........let them eat cake!
