Justice and its Discontents

By Diogenes (articles ) | Jun 08, 2003

In case you've ever wondered why Republican administrations seldom succeed in implementing the pro-family platform on which they were elected.

Democrats and civil rights advocates condemned the Justice Department today for barring a gay pride event planned by department employees, and called on Attorney General John Ashcroft to reverse the decision. ... A group of several hundred gay and lesbian Justice Department employees, called DOJ Pride, had budgeted $600 to hold an awards ceremony on June 18 at the department's Great Hall to celebrate Gay Pride Month. The group has held similar events at the department each of the last six years, members said, and Mr. Ashcroft's top deputy spoke at last year's event.
