Excellent column in today’s Seattle Times by Danny Westneat on the “swamp of personal attack politics” that is the gay outing campaign. (Please read the whole column…. it is great!)
When Outing Is Out Of Line – Seattle Times
We’re not all willing to sink so easily into the swamp of personal-attack politics…. It’s possible to be gay and against the gay-rights bill without being a hypocrite…. I support the gay-rights bill, too. But it’s extreme ? disturbing, even ? to conclude that anyone’s position on it justifies a witch hunt into their personal sexual lives.
If only our so-called “gay rights” groups in DC felt as strongly in favor of protecting the individual rights of gays targeted by such efforts… I can only hope, right?
And then there’s this great comment by Dave Kaplan, Log Cabin President for Washington State (and occassional GayPatriot reader!) has this great comment, too:
“Just because you’re gay doesn’t mean you have to agree to every plank of liberal, gay orthodoxy.”
Now THAT is the Log Cabin I joined 10 years ago!!!
