( - Speaking at the enrollment ceremony for the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” the law barring homosexuals from serving openly in the armed forces, Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) had a message for those “worried about the radical homosexual agenda.”

“Four years ago, a Republican running for Congress in Indiana said don’t vote for his Democratic opponent because if he won, Nancy Pelosi would become speaker and she would let me enact the radical homosexual agenda,” Rep. Frank told the audience on Tuesday.

“So, let me own up to that agenda. It’s to be protected against violent crimes driven by bigotry. It’s to be able to get married. It’s to be able to get a job and it’s to be able to fight for our country. Hey, for those, for those who are worried about the radical homosexual agenda, let me put them on notice – two down, two to go.”

Frank was joined at the ceremony by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Rep. Patrick Murphy (D-Pa.), House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.), Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.), Sen. Patrick Leahy (Vt.) and other Democratic members of Congress.
