In 2007, "Dear Abby" author Jeanne Phillips publicly -- and controversially -- spoke out in support of gay marriage. Since that time, she has become a target of conservatives. Today, the Washington Times highlights a recent analysis by the right-wing Culture and Media Institute, which concludes that Phillips has repeatedly "rejected traditional morality":
"Abby has flown under the radar for years dispensing radical advice on matters of sexual morality while enjoying a reputation for hard-nosed, common-sense advice," says Robert Knight, director of the institute. "We thought people ought to know there's a pattern here that's consistent throughout her career."
