    Ben,

    That’s true, but they achieved equality by fighting off the people who oppressed them, not declaring their enmity with abstract concepts.

    aJD– as we must do as well. I would never say that we should stop fighting, but we should recognize when we must fight and when we must reach out– or as I would prefer…come out.

    We will always face the bigots the haters, the fearful. We can’t do anything about that. but as i say, it is a waste of effort to try to reach them. Lewt’s ofcus on the decent people, instead.
