Don't remember the Maine vote, just keep eyes on gay prize

There are 1 comment on the story from Nov 7, 2009, titled Don't remember the Maine vote, just keep eyes on gay prize. In it, reports that:

Perhaps the Rev. Gilbert H. Caldwell picked up his unflinching boldness in his pursuit of justice from all those years he spent on the civil rights trail with the man he calls Martin King.

I don't love or agree with everything he says, but it's interesting and amusing to note that those *WHO SOUND* the most educated and intelligent are the ones *for equality*. They are much, much more well-spoken, their points are clear, and they *can explain them in passionate terms* that would open the eyes of the anti-gay if they weren't *STAPLE-GUNNED SHUT*.

As an aside, I saw another editorial today criticizing the attitude that "As the older generations die off, gay rights will prevail." WOW, with all the abuse people suffer, how do you expect them to react? I turn *RIGHT AROUND* and firmly say, Shame on *YOU* for an anti-gay editorial. Talk to your fellow *spineless ones*, not the gay people who are simply being honest about how sick they are of being abused.
