    Glad he rethought his position but he sounds like he has an IQ of about 40. He believed that gay marriage was harmful to straight marriage because FOX told him so? Well, I guess that just about explains Republicans.

    No.

    Forgive him. He admitted a mistake. We've all made critical errors in judgement and have caused pain to others. It takes a stronger person to forgive another then to wallow in hatred and bitterness.

    I honestly cannot believe a group of gay men would be so cold and callous as to think that someone is beyond redemption. It seems as though some have been staring into the abyss for too long and it has stared back.

    No.

    Only if he is a Democrat who waves the rainbow flag. A Conservative will never be forgiven for their sins, and the damage they have done. But a democrat, all sins will be forgiven so long as they wave the rainbow flag.icon_rolleyes.gif

    Forgive him, for he knows not, of what he has done.

    Don't turn what I said into a narrow, party aligned argument.

    YourName2000 saidGood for him.

    I'll take support wherever we can find it. And if that support comes from someone who was once one of our detractors, all the better.

    I have mixed feelings about this. This guy worked overtime to hurt us, and he had some degree of success. The obstruction of gay civil rights has been partly due to him and others like him. Now he does a Gilda Radner and says "Nevermind" so we should just forget about it?

    At the same time, he might serve as an example to those holdout homophobes on the Right. He could weaken their resolve to oppose us. Or, alternatively, harden their resistance to gay civil rights. So that the verdict on this is still out, in my mind. I'll judge it by the actual results.

    It's a forum luvie.
    The left are not free of all sins just because they wave the rainbow flag.

    You can always count on the demented Australian for some primo gibberish.

    Oh Lee. Did you care about our civil rights when you lived as a straight married family man in the Army. Did you wave our flag in support?

    Did you bring your children up to be gay friendly, or to look down on us as being dirty and beneath them as you once did; overlooking your own sins and damage.

    Do your kids wave the flag in support of their now gay daddy, or hang their heads in shame, for the things done in your name?

    Perfect. The point of this is to practice forgiveness, not judgement. Over the course of several years this guy has developed his opinions and that's all that we could as of anybody!

    I hope that I would be man enough to admit that I was wrong about something I was so vocal about.
