North Carolina Republicans send out homophobic mailings against Democratic Senate candidate Kay Hagan.

The mailings warn that Hagan seeks to advance a “radical homosexual agenda” that includes legalizing gay marriage, removing “Under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance, and forcing the Boy Scouts to accept gay and atheist troop leaders.
