47. When someone relies on racist comments...

to get across their point/opinion, they deserve serious hammering; you got what you deserved.

So, the article means squat to your position? Really? If the Supremes decide to follow the guidance of their appointed counsel it will mean plenty, and will set back LGBTQ equality for several years.

As someone involved on the front lines of the struggle for gay equality for nearly 40 years, I'm very well aware of what's involved. You can be angry and throw all the temper tantrums you want about the struggle for equality, demanding it not NOW but RIGHT NOW but, as I've learned, it doesn't happen that way. Just look how long black folks and women have been struggling and they aren't there YET.

Stop behaving like a child.
