    In all fairness, while I definitely think this is an important issue, for the time being I think it can wait for a little bit longer. IMO the economy and healthcare reform are much bigger problems that affect a much greater number of people in much bigger ways, so that should be the priority right now.

    1. Truman says:

      Okay, Laura. If those are such important issues, in all fairness, how much of your equality are you willing to sacrifice until health care reform and the economy are improved?

    Another MLK quote: “Justice too long delayed is justice denied.” (King was himself quoting William Gladstone)

    Oh, spare me…..military gay “rights” are so down the checklist it’s laughable….come on! With all the issues right now you need to worry about allowing gays in the military??…go to Maine and deal with THAT FIRST!!!

    1. Truman says:

      How about your rights, Tim? Are you willing to put them down at the bottom of the list too? No? It’s just other people’s rights?

      When you agree to give up your rights until the time that LGBT Americans have theirs, then I’ll spare you Tim.
