I can understand why people get fed up with politics - One person's lack of compassion does not equal another's comfort.
One person's lack of comprehension does not equal another's consent.

Honestly, I almost did not read the latest mailing from HRC, but I did, and I must agree that Bush's nominee for surgeon general James Holsinger is, like all his other decisions, a remarkably bad one from a human rights standpoint.

Excerpt from what I read:
How can we trust Holsinger to be America's top doctor, when his resume looks like this:

* In 1991 used basic plumbing analogies to write a "scientific and medical" paper arguing that homosexuality is unnatural and dangerous.
* Founded the Hope Springs Community Church, which reportedly has a special program to "cure" gays from "that lifestyle."
* Past writings indicate that he views sexual orientation as a "lifestyle choice." This could not be further from the view held by mainstream medical or scientific organizations.

Apparently he's too much of a prude to realize that heteros practice "that lifestyle" a lot of the time as well...

I almost replied to you, "I don't, actually" and then I remembered that in our puritanical country, oral sex is actually listed as "Sodomy".

Oh good!

Finally, someone that can try to fight "The Gay". It is a quickly spreading disease. You can catch "The Gay" just by associating with homosexuals, or coming within seven blocks of a Gay Pride parade, or reading gay literature, or listening to gay music. Even thinking about homosexuals can make you susceptible to "The Gay". Also entering certain stores like Dolce & Gabbana, Luois Vuitton, Gucci, or Ikea... because that is where all the people who have "The Gay" go.

Apparently good preventative measures are going about life with blinders on, hiding in a vault or closet at night (in case a gay breaks into your bedroom), and picketing funerals. Self-flagellation apparently is not that effective given the amounts of pederasty amidst the Opus Dei.

Oh beware of "The Gay"... it can get Yooouuuuuuu!
