You know what really burns me up? When some organization or group gets all discriminatory and then tries to dig themselves out of the hole by saying something conciliatory. As in the Vatican’s anti-gay missive:
The church, while deeply respecting the people in question, cannot admit to the seminary and the sacred orders those who practice homosexuality, present deeply rooted homosexual tendencies or support so-called gay culture.
Well, I don’t know about you, but I don’t feel particularly respected by the church.
Why does it seem like we are on the cusp of a brand new dark age? And why don’t more people notice the first steps toward a new civil rights crisis. What’s next? “Straights only” water fountains?
