Response to Jakes Progress (Reply #38)

40. The question contains a false assumption.

You're trying to equate his declaring that his position is "evolving" -- on the one hand -- with his actively coming out against gay marriage, i.e., "attacking a woman's right to choose" -- on the other. Your attempt to equate the two is fallacious.

He may have actually done the the LGBT's community's right to marriage far more benefit by "evolving" (for now), rather than losing the election altogether, and having his ability to make such change become powerless and his position completely irrelevant.

Maybe it makes you feel better to get indignant, but it is not constructive. And it isn't smart in an election year.
