Our Good Friends

Here is particularly moving testimony from Maine:



LGBTs have very good friends like the gentleman above. A lot of our hetero friends have sometimes been bolder and more courageous in our cause than we have been.

The one thing I've always asked our antagonists to do is to look around at the company that they are keeping on the lgbt issue. I ask, does it give you any comfort to know that the likes of Robert Mugabe, Mahmoud Ahadinejad, and Fred Phelps agree with you on this issue? Don't you think that company says something about that particular position on this issue?

Right wingers always complain that "inclusivity" seems to end with them. Well, on issues of arbitrary discrimination it does. It has to by definition. It cannot include those who would exclude for entirely arbitrary reasons on the basis of determined characteristics like race, gender, and sexual orientation. Those characteristics may be determined, but opinions and attitudes about them are chosen.

Hat tip to Toujoursdan at Culture Choc.

"What do you think I fought for at Omaha Beach?"

Says it all. Actually, the gentleman made me cry, because I look at the antagonists and say, "There but for the grace of God...."
