You were busy trying to get yourself lit on fire. It happens.

Well, yeah, I guess it was a bit of a leap - I certainly didn't mean to imply that you wished there weren't any gay people, and I'm sorry that I did. But it still seems backwards to me, because the problem wouldn't be his gayness, but harmful reactions to his gayness. And I can understand not wanting your son to be harmed, but as someone who does have a personal stake in this, one less person being gay doesn't solve homophobia for me or my friends.
I'm sorry if this comes off as another attack on you personally - I don't mean it that way. Just some food for thought.

I believe in solving problems, not sharing them.

Quote:The only thing I would change would be the part about climate change. Most conservatives will admit to that since the climate is indeed changing and always has cycled throughout the ages. So you might want to call it global warming for your intentions. But it was a good article.

I'm with Byte on this one. I remember coming home and the LAST thing I wanted to do was get on the internet, for one thing. For another, that took me a bit of time to do (mostly because I don't know off the top of my head what to replace the names with, and had to look for rallies, etc., that were pro-right). It wasn't just dashed off and probably took more than an hour to put together.
I wouldn't ask anyone to spend their time doing anything they don't want to, which is why I volunteered. The sad thing to ME is that Wulf never came back and actually addressed it--the kudos were nice, but he still got the concept of the article wrong, and hasn't come back since. Which is okay, and not that unusual, just a shame he can't follow up on his statement that everyone would be "outraged" and see that nobody WAS.
Worth the time, tho'; was kind of a fun challenge.
My parents were Republicans. Thank gawd I went my own way, tho' to be fair, they weren't ANYTHING like the righties we see here and would have abhorred the Tea Party. I guess you'd call them "moderate Republicans", if there is such a thing (and yes, I know there is, I'm just teasing).
