It looks like it won’t be the heads of the national gay organizations nor even those in the Golden State.Â Maybe the president-elect?
I just returned from running an errand where I caught sight of a flyer urging people to join a “No on Prop 8 Protest” to “Fight the H8.”Â Are these people so inured to the mantra of gay activists that all those who don’t support their goals do so because they hate gay people that they can’t see the hatred within their own ranks?
To be sure, many of those rallying have avoided angry rhetoric and are only (primarily?) expressing their frustration at the outcome of last week’s vote.Â Yet, the rhetoric (and the signs) of a large number of the participants shows them to be expressing the same sort of hatred they supposedly decry.
They have become the haters.Â Such individuals aren’t the leaders we need to promote real and lasting social change.
