Andrew Sullivan being gay and the gay agenda on CSPAN.
I like this guy. He is catholic, AND GAY, but sees ALL minorities, not just gays, going about becoming mainstream the wrong way. He, like I, as a minority atheist, do not see government protectionism as the proper tactic. He says by doing such those who don't like us, will see us as getting special treatement and create more division and hate.
He has the same attitude I do as an atheist. Let the words fly and FIGHT BACK. He says that he is unafraid of what any bigot has to say and the best way to counter them is not to silence them, but to raise one's own voice.
HE also says that he wishes minority activist groups wouldn't have to exist. I agree, much like many soldiers or police which that their jobs didn't exist. He says that he, like I do, want to see a day when we are seen, not as "African Americans" or "Irish Americans" or "gay Americans" and I think he would include "atheist Americans, in that we are simply all individuals.
I get down on people who have really good intent in wanting to end bigotry and my issue has never been intent, but tactic. He would agree with me that SOME on the left, are going about it the wrong way. He like I would say, "Don't silence the bigots", fight back with your own voice.
He would say, "BRING IT ON!. I AM NOT AFRAID OF YOU".
I am the same way as an atheist. I don't tell others not to say,"You are going to burn in hell". I simply say, "You are full of shit and have no evidence".
"We are a nation of Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus -- and nonbelievers."Obama
