Few have said it better

  1. wonderful spoken essay and I could not agree more. Why must these people stamp out the ember of someone else’s love, just because it looks different from their love?

  2. The history of the neocons, from the rise of Rush Limbaugh and Newt Gingrich and his contract on America right through prop 8 here in California, seems to me to have one unifying theme:

    Hurt, angry people bent on inflicting their misdirected hurt and anger onto others as a way of temporarily feeling better themselves.

    They always need scapegoats, they always require victims. It’s like watching some primitive superstition that requires human sacrifice to appease their angry gods.

  3. Two things Keith neglected that need mentioning (and I am a HUGE fan of his).

    1 – It DOES affect him; tax dollars go towards the Gay Divorce Welfare program… HIS money.

    2 – We need to hear more about the damage and suffering caused when rights are denied; it’s more than “love”. Legal Hate & Cruelty is what we experience.

    Simply put – the Mormons have proved with their complete obsession with PROP 8 to be a Tax-Exempt Hate Group.

    Heterosexuals – You better wake up. Instead of pondering a cerebral concept like how gays want the “1,138 rights of marriage”, you need to educate yourselves about the CONSEQUENCES when one or more of those 1,138 rights are denied. GOOGLE “Freeheld” or “Tying the Knot”; watch the DVDs. Write it down now.

    Your laws HATE us, and we’ve had it! Yes, I did said HATE – I stand by it. Because how else can you explain these 3 realities?:

    A police woman loses her life in the line of duty; her wife of 13 years is denied all pension benefits.

    A rancher loses his husband of 22 years; his inlaws evict him and try to take the home he built and lived in with his beloved.

    A detective spends 25 years risking her own life while protecting society; she has to spend her remaining days on this earth worrying whether her earned pension will be transferred to her wife (while living with terminal cancer).

    YES, H-A-T-E. And your silence on this matter is a serious affront to our families’s safety and security. FAMILY – isn’t that a cherished concept in the U.S.A.?

    So now after decades of disinterest, some of us in the LGBTI community have AWAKENED. And we will refuse to pay one penny of income tax to the IRS until the government (i.e. – you) decide you WANT our tax dollars as EQUAL CITIZENS.

    This ain’t a vote.
    This ain’t a debate.
    This ain’t a popularity contest.

    You will PAY OUR TAXES until we have what your family ALREADY HAS; your apathy is costing you money as you read this. GAY TAX PROTEST!

  4. Apparently the Wonderful Wizard of I.T. has blocked out whatever is hosting this video. Poor me. I have to wait until I get home before I can even check it out.

  5. L.B.- I’m gonna post this, I think. So glad you did, and I want as many people as possible to see, to think about it.

    johnbisceglia- I can understand your anger, but look where you’ve posted this? You aren’t just preaching to the choir, you’re chastising them. And you know, getting yourself put in jail over protesting for your rights is one thing, but when you make the public your enemy, and saying ‘you pay my dues’, you lose some key support, and people see you as nutcase. If you have any loyalty to your cause, then be an exemplary advocate for it. Inspire faith and respect in you and people will listen. If you go off like a raving nut, howling and talking about ‘pay-back’ to the heterosexuals who have taken up your cause, just who do you think you’re helping?

    That’s shooting yourself in the foot. If you want to win this issue, be smart. Be smarter than your opponents. And for chrissake, recognize your allies.

  6. JB… Amuirin beat me to the punch and said it much better than I ever could have. No sense in punching the nose of a teammate who is in the fight with you.

    LB… I’m gonna to post this vid as well. I don’t get much traffic from “non-choir members” but occasionally i do.

    peace.

  8. I’m glad I finally got the chance to hear this. Keith is my new hero. I thought I had put things pretty bluntly in my own rant on the subject. I was nowhere near as articulate as he was though. i watched keith the other day for the first time about 3 days before the election. I liked him them, I love him now. I think I need to find his slotted time at night.
