    I guess all you've actually shown is that conservatives will only support gay equality when they can **** with a known vocal liberal.

    Well, whatever they decide to call themselves, being part of the GOP and being pro-gay rights is a completely incompatible position.

    The official GOP platform discriminates against gays. That's the GOP's official policy.

    No, you can't find anything racist against blacks in the current GOP 2012 official party platform, you can however find discriminatory material in there against gays, genius.

    I don't care for anyone getting fired over comments that they make/have made that have no bearing on how they do their job. Paula Deen shouldn't have been fired for what she has said in the past, and Alec Baldwin shouldn't be fired because he made "homophobic tweets" (which I honestly think was him just being mad at someone and he shouldn't be condemned for the "homophobia" as much as for just being a frackin jerk). But in reality, someone else hit it, it is really just business. There are many more people that are against perceived racism than there are those against perceived homophobia.

    so tell me liberals how is it that Paula Deen has her career decimated for something she said 30 years ago, but Baldwin gets a pass for saying something much worse. he just didn't use a homophobic slur he threatened violence against the gay reporter that is a hate crime at least it would be if a conservative did so. the hypocrisy never seams to end with the left
    Paula Deen wanted black people to pretend to be slaves for a wedding party. She's also accused accused of creating a seriously hostile environment for black employees. Contrary to what a lot of people seem to think, she didn't just say the n-word one time in 80s. As a result, I wouldn't call what Baldwin did "worse."

    That said, I do find that the reaction to Baldwin to be lacking. He says a lot of awful things, but a lot of liberals give him a pass for it when they wouldn't give other people a pass.

    Well, in all fairness, Paula Deen also apparently said in ~2007 that she wanted to have a "Civil War era" party where black people would pretend to be slaves. She's also accused of creating a hostile environment for black workers by doing things like having them use separate bathrooms.
