    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    In other words, those gay folks should just be patient until the Neanderthals figure things out. We tried that with blacks after the Civil War. After a hundred years, the Neanderthals still hadn't figured it out.

    This is the same cavalier, blatant trolling everyone who asks a religious conservative the question Gina asked will get in response.

    I don't exactly see anybody trying to make their marriages illegal nor barring their access to places of public accommodation.

    It does in an orderly civilized society, where they wish to practice their faith. I remind you that there are ways for them to both conduct business and keep their faith without practicing random discrimination.

    Maybe those stores and services could put up a sign so that no LGBT person/couple would have to deal with the unpleasantness face to face?

    BTW, the answer was in your quoted comments, not in your own words.
    In a time of extremely rapid cultural evolution the number of actual cases will be small and decrease quickly. Tolerance means not getting everything you want all the time. And the religious conservatives have legitimate human rights and constitutional claims of their own.

    The movement from illegal homosexuality to gay marriage has been accomplished in 10% of the time it took to get from the Emancipation Proclamation to the Civil Rights Act. Your comparison fails.

    And just what are their legitimate human rights and constitutional claims?

    Please see the link in #257. It is anything but cavalier.
