Good lord Robert, and I thought us conservatives were paranoid. No one gives two figs about quelling the rights of the poor downtrodden gay people. What they are afraid of is change, any change. Most people can't handle when the cable company alters the channel line up so they can't find Dancing with the Stars anymore. Something like gay marriage, that terrifies them. They fear a gay teacher will somehow 'recruit' their kids to the gay lifestyle, like its some kind of club. I'm pragmatic. Eventually gay people will be treated to all the good and bad the federal government can heap upon them, mostly bad, I assure you. Then watch them complain.
