  •  I "evolved" too (11+ / 0-)

    I came from a deeply anti-gay segment of the society. I personally did not get or understand that a person could be anything other that str8. I never met anyone who was gay until I was in Grad school.
    Slowly however, I met more gay people at work, in the gym and even in church when I went sporadically.
    I got to know them.

    Although I was never against gay marriage or rights, its an issue that never did rank that high on my agenda. I however abhorred persecution based on orientation

    I FULLY SUPPORT the rights of ANYONE to live their lives as they see fit, or feel like.

    Its none of my business what folks do in their private quarters, just like my business is mine and no one else's.

    This is a NO BRAINER, THE POWERFUL LOGIC OF EQUALITY AND PERSONAL FREEDOM DEFEATS the quasi moral arguments based on 'Judeo-Christian" values.

    Sen McCaskilll should be complemented not dismissed.

    Now, the people whom I absolutely loathe are LGBT GOPers who opposed equality when they were in Bush's Admin, and then once they left, they HAD  a change of heart. Like the former GOP chair for example (I forget his name).
