Dan Savage nails it:
The bigots weren’t in the Armed Forces. The bigots were in the GOP and sitting in front of computers in the offices of anti-gay “Christian” organizations fap-fap-fapping about all the awful things that might happen in the showers—and haven’t happened—once DADT was repealed.
The exact same bigots who predicted that the sky would fall if DADT was repealed make the exact same claims about marriage equality. The media shouldn’t just repeat their lies. Anti-gay bigots have earned a credibility problem. Reporters should challenge the bigots: They were 100% wrong about the “danger” of repealing DADT—why should anyone believe them when they warn about the “danger” of repealing DOMA? Their doom-and-gloom warnings on ending the ban on gays serving openly in the military were completely unfounded. Why should anyone take their doom-and-gloom warnings about ending the ban on same-sex marriage seriously?
And, man, I’d like to see Rick Perry tell that platoon leader—and his men—that he’s not fit to serve because he’s gay.
For some reason WordPress makes me go through vodpod to post this MSNBC link below:
