Robert, what you do in the privacy of your own home is your business. BUT when you decide that you rightfully can call everyone a bigot or homophobe because they do not subscribe to your own personal morality than that is wrong!

Oh and Robert please don't tell me that gays are poor...they aren't. Gays have money, many are very wealthy and have power...AT the expense of 24 million of us who can't find a full time job..so quit your whining!

The progressive mindset is set. It believes that whatever it pursues at the moment must be progress. Think Progress is one of the groups that is convinced progress is achieved by the right people thinking the right thoughts. Or, the right people thinking the left thoughts. "We are the people we've been waiting for," said candidate Obama four years ago. Better to wait for Godot.

The president's re-election slogan is an expression of this mindset. Forward. Just that one word. It's not as bad perhaps as MSNBC's "Lean Forward." Imagine you're on a cliff, looking over into the vast chasm...
