It's 2012 and this country is still fighting a Civil War from 150 years ago. You only have to read what our fellow citizens write in the comment sections of online news articles under a cloak of anonymity to see how they really feel. The vile, prejudiced, disgusting and hateful statements really do alarm me at times. It's no wonder social change takes so long and countless people have to needlessly die in the process. A few years ago Andy Rooney, famous for his old-man rants on "60 Minutes" (and an atheist) was asked in an interview "What gets you really mad? His response? "The stupidity of the American public." I'm glad someone in the public eye had the balls to say the truth.
BTW, Mayor Booker is very cute. :)
That is what they continually fail to understand. That protecting the minority from the tyranny of the majority is vital to a representative democracy. Yes, I know, their response to that would be "yada yada, whatev".
Catholics would still be confined to Maryland if we did everything by majority rule. Oh, and Bush would've lost to Gore.
Loren, this is a better answer than mine.
There would still be Jim Crow, of course.
Imagine someone had proposed a vote on rights for blacks in the Deep South back in the mid-1960's. How well would THAT have gone over?!?
Plus he has a message! He has a weekly (I think) report on marriage equality, so you can get your fix regularly.
Dallas, you were the 1st one I thought of when I embedded that video!
A powerful video: http://www.youtube.com/v/u62OtM_vt5k?version=3&hl=en_US&rel=0
Gary, they make it seem easy in their photos, but each has a journey. I hope that you are hooked into some resources that will help you on your journey too.
