Although I consider myself a Democrat, I think it is somewhat myopic to hold contempt for a gay republican

Don't be silly. The choice is not between republican and democrat, it between whether to join up with people who are disgusted by you or not. If your dignity and humanity is worth trading for a $300 or $3000 check in the mail, you're beneath contempt.

You are thinking that all gay republicans care about is less taxes. Making democratic choices is more than one or two issues, if you can't see that then I am sorry. By the way there are tons of Democrats just as disgusted like most Republicans (see examples of Dem Senators above). The choice is not as clear as you make it seem.

This is exactly the reason why I hate the gay community sometimes. You preach tolerance and open-mindedness yet when a gay person doesn't fit what you think a gay person should be, you jump all over them.

Word.  ;)

Haha. Did university professors join the Khmer Rouge because they liked the country air?

As I have said before -- and this is a point you seem stuck on -- the choice is not between democrats and republicans, it's about whether to join the Republicans or not. Republicans outside ME, VT and RI court hatred. It's their strategy; it's the base from which they spring.  I dig that your average white straight joe might not care about that, but if you're gay, black etc -- that should register somewhere in your consciousness and make you pause.

What do gay republicans care about, anyway? Freedom? Equality? the Judao-Christian Tradition? The War on Terror? Please.

I think everybody should be able to be a part of whatever party they want to, whether they are gay, straight, black, white, rich, poor. Don't invalidate others' beliefs by assuming that you know better than they do which party aligns more with their best interests. That's just arrogant.

Who are you talking to? Me? I'm straight.
