    I think it also probably has to do with not wanting them gays to be holding influence over their children. If they did, them gays would probably tell the children that being gay is ok and that gays should be allowed to be married and all sorts of other awful stuff that the parents don’t want the children to hear.

    Won’t somebody please think of the children! (in my best Helen Lovejoy voice)

    What do you expect from a Republican. Sadly the party has become a collection of bigots, racists and xenophobes who are no longer needing to hide their ideas in the closet.

    My parents were very politically minded people and we had analysis all the time. I loved being in on those discussions, and I helped canvas for McGovern and other candidates before I was out of grade school.

    When I went to see “Milk” with two very close friends, I realized that I’d worked against the Briggs initiative as a newly minted voter with LOTS of gay friends as a teenager.
    My friends, literally had been toddlers back then.

    More than half my damn life and THIS gasbag is echoing a time I hoped I’d never see again.

    Pardon me for being indelicate here, but sometimes I want to take people like Sally Kern and DeMint…and beat them to death with each other.

    Ya feel me?

    Oh, Regan, I know EXACTLY how you feel!

    I remember the Briggs Initiative and thought it would never resurface, I was wring. I thought the Mormons had finally gain some humility, I was wrong. I thought the Catholic church had become less hostile, again, wrong. If I could weave all the lies into a rope and hang these people with it I would. But lies are only air, and things, slowly, are getting better for us here. And, then work on benighted counties like Uganda.

    I was so lucky… I learned from an old guard. Like my uncle, an investigator for the ACLU, conscientious objector during WW2 and co founder of the LA chapter of CORE. Congress of Racial Equality.
    And Morris Kight. Who showed me all the affection and respect like a grandfather to me. Told me to stay the gazelle I was and give em hell like he knew I could.

    I need to keep my energy up for all of this. THEY sure did and this terrible month of grief and anger at the losses of these precious young boys to suicide is telling me to regroup and get back to the young guard I love so well.
    Sometimes I DO call on the spirits of my uncle and Brother Morris, to help me.

    (sigh)
    But then, one of my kids who had a tough teen hood who is now an adult will call me, and I know what I need to do.
    When you have days like that…it gets better for us adults too.

    DeMint is a problem. He is funded by deep Conservative pockets in South Carolina. These “fiscally responsibles” have not balanced the SC budget, nor have they paid their waaay overdue Social Security taxes to the Federal Government.

    Does this sound “responsible”? But yet they are pouring tons of cash into advertizing, even posting ads on gay and liberal sites.

    It seems that in today’s political sphere, the vote means nothing. It matters not how much real support issues, candidates, or partys have, just how much money they have to expend on advertizing.

    If DeMint is channeling John Briggs do you suppose he is also hiding a second family like Briggs?
