I'm keeping tabs on this author. If he didin't try to sell this to the Washington Post, maybe my employer would listen. This was an amazing article, and a fine example of both an editorial and investigative journalism! bravo!

I read this, but was unable to relate to the "feel-good" portion in the latter part of the article.

When Dan Savage "sat down with" Brian Brown about gay marriage, there was a portion of that exchange which nailed, for me, what it is *exactly* about the antigay which makes them a danger to society and requires the pro-gay to fight them by every legal means available, and forever.

During the exchange, the moderator asked if there *was*, indeed, anything on earth which would prompt either participant to change his position.

Savage gamely responded, and explained that if he *saw PROOF* of positive harm engendered by gay marriage, he would rethink his position.

Near the end of the entire hour, the moderator asked Brian Brown if he, too, could find *ANY* circumstances,

*ANY* whatsoever,

which would prompt him to change his views on gay marriage.

Brian Brown responded that no, absolutely nothing in creation would prompt him to change his view.

That is why, in these matters, my opinions are set in steel and cement and *nnnnnnothing* will prompt me to change my view(s) one atom of a millimeter.

That right there.

I simply make absolutely no concession whatsoever, ever, ever, ever, under any circumstances, and I won't budge. They have that attitude, I have that attitude. I don't even blink.

I commend Savage for his ability to answer the question.

Brown is a walking, talking bucket of rotting scum.

The end.

I wrote a longer response to this, but not important.

I'd rather YOU think this than argue with you, and thank you.
