16. I was going to say "with all due respect", but I don't think I have any...
I'm appalled by the comments here on Reggie White's passing. Not so much, maybe, for the specific context -- dredging up the comments that pretty much ended his career as a media figure -- but for the reminder of how vicious the divide is *inside* the democratic party... between socially conservative, spiritually-centered Christians who also happen to lean Democratic (many, many of whom are black) and the anti- anti-homophobic posse.

Yuck. Talk about "single-issue hysteria" being a problem only among the Republicans. Single-issue Christian-bashing gay advocates who act like idiots do themselves no credit in attacking conservative believers, who for whatever reason, just don't "get it"...

This is a situation that's going to take a lot of work to get any better, and peeing on graves is no way to get it rolling.
