    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    Illegitimate repression is illegitimate repression. It is why Berkeley's free speech movement became the anti-war movement. The comparison is only unappealing to you because the moral connection makes you uncomfortable.

    This makes for great fodder. I like the part about the stocks the best. Makes it so dramatic and full of hyperbole.

    Personally, I think he should have gone with the Black Death, which decimated two thirds of Europe. That packs much more of a wallop.

    He's a highly respected journalist who happens to be gay. Makes a better case than I could.

    There seems to be some controversy over whether the IRS was involved or not. IRS must be held responsible for leaking National Organization for Marriage donor list | Fox News

    Luckily there are other Gays like Sullivan speaking out against this atrocity.

    The comparison is apt. Enjoy your discomfort. I have dinner guests arriving. Out.
