9. thanks
I wish we could generate a little more discussion on this.

I don't like letting the idea stand unchallenged that it is those talking about the Warren selection who are out of line and causing trouble, while those saying "get over it" are the "calm" and "rationale" voices who are the peacemakers. Peace that comes at the expense of isolating, marginalizing and dismissing GLBTQ people is not something we should seek or accept.

This challenge is parallel to the challenge we face on all of the issues. We are being told that there would be peace, and no partisan divide if only the annoying Left would just go away or shut up. Of course there will be peace if one side simply surrenders or disappears. But that is no sort of peace that we should be supporting or promoting.
