I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
The problem is they dress these village idiots who spread this BS up in suits and call them news people. They call some of them doctors. they give some silly hats and call them representatives of god. It is not terribly surprising people believe them when they assume positions of knowledge and authority to spread lies and BS. They want gays back in the closet because first hand knowledge destroys these lies in many people. If the only exposure you ever have or know about with the gay community is some guy lying to make them look like the worst possible people in the world, some people are going to buy it. When gay people have to hide who they are for fear of retribution this makes them invisible because most people assume you are straight until they find out different. This allows the pro-straight liars to pretend that you are not surrounded by respectable homosexuals every day who you would never know. because it is easy to pretend you don't know any gay people is the reason why it becomes important for gay people to come out. It is also dangerous because everyone knows there is discrimination and the people who do not want gays seen make a huge effort to do that.
So yes when this guy changes his mind because his son was probably the first person he knew well and loved who was gay, then it changed his mind. unfortunately that does not always happen. It is acceptable to disown, attack, and torture gay children. yes, people's minds are often changed about prejudices because of someone close to them. It is just something one has to accept about humans. Sometimes it takes a pretty big knock to the head to tell them thy were wrong. At least he admitted it, and showing some of the more stubborn gay haters it is ok to admit to being wrong will give those people an excuse to follow suit. I know the world would be a much better place if people didn't wait for something so obvious to re-evaluate their feelings, but the world is what it is.
Arnold S, was anything but a Republican, as his catastrophic support of Global Warming and and other far left Progressive intiatives proved.
Sorry, but you're not close. No other state, and in some cases, no other country in the world, has adopted the far left liberal/progressive agenda as California has.
The economy in California should provide ample proof of this.
To her Wall Street owners: Hillary Clinton: “But if everybody's watching, you know, all of the back room discussions and the deals, you know, then people get a little nervous, to say the least. so, you need both a public and a private position.” - Hillary Clinton: "I'm kind of far removed from the struggles of the Middle Class"
