This is a weird article. The headline states Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, John Lewis are reintroducing the bill, but the article doesn't mention them at all. I know who Ros-Lehtinen is, but I don't know who John Lewis is.

If you knew ANYTHING about Civil Rights, and the history of the struggle, you would know who John Lewis is. He was as big as you get in that struggle, short of MLK. He is a man to be admired. Where the hell have you been all this time?

Foxie is one of those people that cant see beyond Fox news but yet believes hes the greatest political historian alive. another one of his not so fine qualities is his racism & bigotry
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. described bigotry in the following quotation: "The mind of a bigot is like the pupil of the eye; the more light you pour upon it, the more it will contract!

I'm not real familiar with the folks on Topix. I'm just keeping an eye on gay-related news for a friend who is traveling. From what I'm seeing on here, I think I have missed very little over the years he and I have discussed it. About half the people on here seem to be very ill-informed. Makes for difficult intelligent discourse.

Bigots do not care about children but bully those they hate.
