    that was uncalled for.

    This is a practical issue for me.

    Right now we don't even have the right to free elections, or any guarantee our votes count.

    So to pursue issues that are distracting, especially for the media, who loves to run with these issues, and issues that are this divisive, and, in my opinion, don't really have anything to do with politics except insofar as the right-wing is trying to take away rights -- I think is simply not a practical use of political energy.

    It doesn't really matter what the issue is.

    I am confident that gays will eventually achieve full acceptance into society.  I live and work in a business and town where this is already the case, so maybe that affects my views here.

      Basically all afternoon, you have been saying, 'fags, be quiet.  Shut up and if you are good, perhaps we might let you children sit in the grown up table'.

      But until I can get a single solitary reason why we shouldn't have the same rights under law, I will think you're wrong.

      I am an American.  I deserve, nay, I DEMAND, equal rights under law.
