About 50 years ago the Southern states were in front of the cameras denying African Americans the right to vote, the right to go to school, the right to eat, sleep, or take a pee where they wanted. We look back at their faces, ugly people, screaming about integration, and “n-words” and throwing rocks and little black girls going to school. Southern state police beating, water hosing, setting dogs on peaceful activism for freedom, liberty and civil rights. What the US Constitution really means.
It will not take 50 years for history to see those railing against equal rights for gays today in the same ugly way history presents the racists of 50 years ago. It is not only being on the wrong side of history, but the wrong side of humanity. The only real difference between the the Republican Base and the Taliban is a matter of degree. The perpetuation of ignorance, intolerance and bigotry in the name of God. IT STINKS TO HIGH HEAVEN.
A feather in the cap for our lead Christian commenter DB. I have read a few articles of late that say it is not so much young people deserting faith, as it is young people deserting the religious RIGHT for the religious LEFT. Though it seems too far under the radar for me to see much of.
