WE are becoming THEM
Talking about how gays shouldn't get the same rights as everyone else until they vote 100% for Democrats?

Acting as though the GOP assault on the separation of powers is no big deal?

Posting a poll calling for the execution of Wolfowitz?

:scared:

2. #1 is in a thread in the Civil Rights forum
#2 was in my thread about the Democrats who voted for the "Marriage Protection Act" which strips gays of their right to sue for relief under the constitutional court system.

4. As Democrats,
we must respect the fact that no one will agree 100% with the Democratic platform. We must treat each person with respect. We do have the right, however, to wonder why people do or act the way they do (I'm thinking of gays who work for candidates who are virolently anti-gay).

I think one reason Democrats have been called 'wimps' is because we try to be fair and respectful. The Repukes usually don't do this any more, and make fun of us because we are. We must assertively counter their rhetoric and insist that honesty and respect are things to be valued.

5. Gays should have the same rights, period.
No special rights.

And I know some of us are sell-outs to repuke interests. I suppose it's mere coincidence that their money interests collide with their sexuality. When the repukes outlaw us, their money will not protect them.

And if I find out which ones are gay, you can bet your sweet bippy I'll out them.
