    Why don't you shut up and give that hole in your face a chance to heal?

    And why didn't he do this while he was serving in the House? Perhaps fear of alienating some of his (admittedly already looney) consituents and losing votes?


    Bearing in mind he came out publicly as gay in 1987, I doubt he is too worried about his personal life alienating anyone.

    There's a difference between public acceptance of a person being gay, and public acceptance of gay marriage.

    Yup there sure is.. and BOTH are now accepted by the MAJORITY of the US population and gaining even higher numbers. This is 2012 now, not 1987..

    Yes of course. How silly of me to actually step off the plantation and point out how much of a pig this man is. It was so stupid of me to say something negative about a criminal who is held as some kind of gay folk hero.

    So do I have to surrender my "gay" card? Or am I some self hating gay man? All because I happen to think that a man who essentially ran a brothel out of his home, is not somebody the gay community should hold up as some kind of example?

    I'm not a fan of Rep. Frank; his philosophy and mine are worlds apart. The way he and I treat others is worlds apart.

    However, I have to respect the work, even if just symbolic, he's done for the cause of equal justice. A lot of us in the military were prohibited from living as we really are, and he was never afraid to do so for us, on many occasions, when it wasnt always as accepted as it is now.

    So, good riddance Rep Frank, but thanks for what you did, and I hope you enjoy a settled, legally married life.
