Republican Lawmaker in Hot Water Over Gay Sex Scandal

Yet again, an anti-gay Republican lawmaker is finding himself in hot water for soliciting gay sex. Yet again, he swears that he is not gay.

Ummm…yea. Okay.

This time around, the solicitor is Philip Hinkle, a state lawmaker representing Indiana’s 92nd District since 2000. Hinkle admits he met with 18-year-old Kameryn Gibson at a hotel in the hopes of having “a good time”. Reports of the encounter emerged two weeks ago, after Gibson had posted an advertisement on Craigslist looking for a “sugga daddy”. Mr Hinkle allegedly responded with offers “to make it worth your while” in cash. He also added, “I am an in shape married professional, 5’8″, fit 170 lbs, and love getting and staying naked.”

When the two men met at the JW Marriott hotel, Gibson claims to have changed his mind about the encounter, but says Hinkle tried to keep him from leaving, exposed himself and offered him $100 in cash, an iPad and a Blackberry to keep quiet. Gibson also claims that Hinkle’s wife offered him $10,000 to remain silent about the incident.

Despite the nature of the events, Hinkle is adamant that he is not gay, and can’t explain why he set up the meeting with Gibson. He claims that Gibson stole the cash and electronics from him. Hinkle has said that he will not seek re-election, but refuses to resign, despite House Speaker Brian Bosma’s call Tuesday to do so. He also claims he did nothing illegal with —or to— the young man and that he himself was the victim of a crime. But he said he would not file a police report.

Poor, poor, victimized, gay Mr. Hinkle.

Life can get busy.

I recently wrote an article for The Next Family called, “Family-Friendly Films That Feature Adoption and Foster Care,” that shared wonderful family films with adoption or foster care story lines. My reasoning behind doing so was because every family deserves a chance to see similar families like theirs represented in various forms of entertainment.

The same can be said of other...
