I seethe NOT because my son is gay. I seethe because he lives in a country in which some elected officials find it politically advantageous to deny him dignity, basic rights, and protections. I seethe because there are people who preach hatred and discrimination towards gays yet claim to be "good" and "loving" Christians. I seethe because there are groups who claim to be "advocates" for the family but who work to do great harm to any family that doesn’t fit their narrow template for “normal”.

A race to the bottom of the barrel – Part 2
Oh and let’s not forget the Baptist Minister who’s leading the GOP pack in the Iowa polls. You know, the one who’d rather quarantine anyone with AIDS than minister to them, or convince a parole board to release a convicted rapist against their better judgment and then lie through his teeth about his influence on the board when said rapist not only rapes another woman but kills her for good measure, but who got into politics to take back this Nation for Christ.
