There are events and attitudes that some argue to be antigay; that some question being antigay; and so forth. Opinions may differ.

To me, where this issue of compassion is centered, anyone who DOESN'T find antigay reactions antigay is nuts. I may not say so, but I will privately think so every time.

When cases and stories like these become public fodder for discussion, the fact that the antigay *never, never* react with compassion even in *these extreme* cases is a clear sign to me that -- very generally speaking -- the antigay are exactly what they have been labeled as, and tirelessly: hateful, bigoted, vicious, almost subhuman and shockingly childish individuals.

These are the cases that I think bring out the worst in the pro-gay, and this is why I forgive the pro-gay daily for their own viciousness, as well.

At least the noisiest of them, certainly.

Why have a legislature then ? Just let the judges rule by decree.(Elect me King and I will rule with an Iron Sceptre. But ALWAYS be Fair. And Balanced.:))
