from andrew sullivan's site.
really, it makes me incredibly, profoundly sad. and still there are gay republicans who will vote for bush. maybe the proliferation of nuggets like this will help sway them to sanity. the bush campaign may be playing it coy, making every attempt possible to reach out to middle of the road gay voters, but bush's supporters are quite outspoken in their hatred, and see bush as the man to further their cause.
how naive of me to think images of gay pride parades used as 'shock and disgust' fodder were relics from the days of anita bryant. we truly live in an age where content and perception can be diametrically opposed.
and here's another disturbing, though more preposterously amusing nugget
"Homosexuals are not monogamous. They want to destroy the institution of marriage," Dobson said.
"It will destroy marriage. It will destroy the Earth."
Dobson urged rally attendees to reach out to homosexuals and "bring them to Jesus."
an interesting comment on the previous post about splitting colorado's electoral votes. yes, a nation-wide change would be the best way for electoral college reform, but after 700 proposals to change it, it's clear that it won't ever happen on the national level (which makes bush's proposal for a marriage amendment all the more ludicrous). i'm almost willing to say it'd be worth kerry losing the election to break the locks of the electoral college. almost. i need more insight into the topic. anyone else?
