Robert: So you and Mark4414 have no problem with Tea Party activists joining the Democrat Party with the express purpose of destroying it? Methinnks you two have missed the point of the column (...because you are so desperate to defend homosexuality?). Groups of people have a right to associate/congregate based on criteria THEY establish. Non-members do not have a right to demand that the criteria be changed to accommodate them. Or have I misread the Constitution?
