Quote of the Day

Andrew Sullivan has not had a approbational reference from this blog in some time. But he earns it today:

Will [Former Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich] now be forced to walk through the streets in shame? Why not the stocks? The whole episode disgusts me -- as it should disgust anyone interested in a tolerant and diverse society. If this is the gay rights movement today -- hounding our opponents with a fanaticism more like the religious right than anyone else -- then count me out. If we are about intimidating the free speech of others, we are no better than the anti-gay bullies who came before us. -- The Dish

Slate actually published something worthwhile on this: Lets purge all 35,000 people who donated to Prop 8!

I'll raise you one: Mother Jones published OkCupid's CEO Donated to an Anti-Gay Campaign Once, Too. Thanks a lot for starting this, lads!

Clearly it would save time if anyone who ever supported an opinion which differs from George Takei would just quit his or her job and beg on the street. The rest of us will take over.

George Takei? I know he's the Captain of the USS Facebook but can we at least make it his old boss, William Shatner? I might stand a chance matching opinions with him. Otherwise it's "Brother... can you spare a dime?"

On the serious side, may we observe that the rabid, barking dog that is the crusade to require acceptance of homosexuality by everybody, everywhere, has now finally reached the end of its very long leash? Despite the many appearances that this may be so, Ross Douthat suggests that they won't settle for mere plurality but instead are bent on full-blown absolutism.
