    I don't, but even if I did, I wouldn't need to call a press conference to announce it so I can "be who I am."

    It all sounds so silly, and........gay.

    LOL

    Why is this even news? I'd much rather the news focus on something far more legitimate and worthwhile...like properly reducing crime, our economics, and education.

If the person was struggling with their sexuality for decades and was afraid to admit it to themselves, then they aren't doing something worse than the person who tells a ****load of "little" lies to their wife for personal gain. That's what a rational basis for determining equivilancy would be.

    My argument is that the people calling him a scumbag do not use a rational basis for their inequivalency and will seek out irrational ways to make the closeted homosexual's actions worse than the non-homosexual's.

    But I also know that you are incapable of introspection on this topic, so I do not expect you to understand my position.

    much ado about nothing.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    Except that me having two pitchers of beer last night and telling my wife I only had one is NOT the same in ANY context as what this mans lies did to his ex girlfriend and seven years of her life wasted away on a man that could never feel the same way about her.

    But nice try!

    Hehe.. Well I can be had for two pitchers of beer and a Bills game, so I'm not exactly cheap, but very flexible.

    Hey if you do come back let me know, we'll grab a few cold ones. I'll buy!

    Does your newspaper not carry a crime section or something?
