"President Bush risks alienating his pro-family base with his outreach to Republican homosexual activists," says a new report published by the Culture & Family Institute.
CFI is a division of Concerned Women for America, founded in 1979, which claims to be the nation’s largest public policy women’s organization, with over 500,000 members.

Written by CFI's Robert Knight, Peter LaBarbera and Ken Ervin, "The Bush Administration's Republican Homosexual Agenda: The First 100 Days" states that during his first 100 days in office, George W. Bush:
- appointed a homosexual activist, Scott Evertz, to head the
White House office on AIDS;
- failed to overturn a single Clinton executive order dealing with homosexuality;
- continued the Clinton policy of issuing Department of Defense regulations to combat "anti-gay harassment" in a military that is required by law to keep homosexuals out of the armed forces;
- presided over the appointment of a homosexual activist, Stephen Herbits, to oversee the choice of civilian personnel at the Pentagon;
- did not hinder the application of a homosexual activist group for consulting status with the United Nations, despite the group's opposition to the U.S. military's homosexual ban and other activist goals such as legal "marriage" and lowering the age of sexual consent for homosexuals. (The group, the International Lesbian and Gay Association, lost its U.N.-affiliated status in 1994 when it was revealed that it counted NAMBLA, the North American Man/Boy Love Association, among its members.)
Although Herbits has stepped down, according to the Washington Times, CFI Director Robert Knight argues that the
"gays-in-the-military" advocate shouldn't have been brought into such a sensitive position in the first place.
"This administration seems unable to understand that homosexual advocacy is not popular with pro-family Americans," Knight said. "Mr. Bush and his team are creating a brand of Republican 'gay' activism that threatens to further 'mainstream' a lifestyle that his Christian faith says is immoral. God does not approve of Republican homosexuality any more than Democratic homosexuality."
