Having a not so Gay Old Time

Check out this Boston article from the AP.

Gay advocates plan to post names of anti-gay marriage petition signers

Here's a chilling excerpt:
"Everyone's scrambling to know who in their town would sign this," Lang told the Boston Herald. "And this Web site will give gay people the tools to know, to defend themselves and their families, to let them go neighbor-to-neighbor and say, 'I don't appreciate your signing this.'"
Yeah, they just want to 'defend' themselves. This argument sounds sanguine, until you see what else happened in Massachusetts today:

Angry Pro-Gay Demonstators Swarm Over Parental Rights Rally

David Parker was the Lexington parent who made national news because he did not want his children exposed to Gay Lesbian Transgender propaganda materials through the Lexington public schools.

Here's a gem:
As the Parker supporters lined the other side of Bedford street and held their signs, it seemed that the anger of the pro-gay activists increased considerably. One Parker sign-holder was spat on as he walked past a 12-year-old girl. Insults were hurled.
This makes me wonder why Lang really wants to publish those names. So much for all that liberal tolerance and respect for free speech.

Plain and simple. For violent attacks to be leveled towards the signatories. Ain't tolerance great.

The worse that could happen is they decoratively tp your house. I'm suprised none of them threw a hissy fit.

Fitch - always right.

DPT - That's the gay element. Here in MA they get mixed with the ugly types.
