    As the legal battle about disclosing NOM donors in Maine wraps up, we should get their names soon enough. My bet would be on some CEOs who don't want their namesto be associated with bigotry, lest their businesses suffer and their boards will getr very unhappy with them. Karma may just be the bitch she's said to be.

    Two thoughts:

    1) As bigots see less and less return on their investments in NOM etc, they will be less willing to donate.

    2) As bigots see legal challenges to their anonmity, they will be less likely give out of fear that soon their names will be disclosed.

    I sincerely wish the next "fat guy with a pistol" hits up the NOM headquarters.

    It would thrill me to no end to see that organization obliterated by bullets.

    They want us dead.

    Killing the leaders should be legally viewed as self-defense.

    I don't think you need to say that it's self-defense...

    wishing something to happen isn't a crime ;)

    keep at it, I'll do the same.

    Although.... I would prefer that it be some big scandal that takes them down, like if Brian Brown is found soliciting male prostitutes in a public bathroom... Or if Maggie Gallagher is found to be misappropriating funds or pocketing away more than her salary. I revel in the fact that both of those scenarios are actually extremely likely. icon_razz.gif

    I think Petraeus and company has pretty much put the tired, old defense of marriage defense to rest. It's going to be harder and harder to defend marriage from gays with heteros like that.

    Restated: With heteros like that, who needs gays?

    Now to wait for the opportune time to use my new catchphrase so that people will think I'm clever icon_idea.gif

    Until they actually do anything besides wishing harm, your suggestion is complete idiocy.

    ^^^ Idiocy maybe, but any civil rights struggle needs the extremist fringe. I believe Malcom X and his rejection of non-violence was an integral part of the civil rights movement in the sixties, and I don't see anything similar in the gay rights movement of today, besdies the occasional post like the one above. But with a bit of luck, we won't need the threat of an extreme wing of our movement to achieve real change.
