Russians convict man of holding sign mentioning gays

I want to criticize the Russians for being homophobic pigs, but look at ourselves?  Dan Savage has to defend himself for the sin of quoting the Bible accurately against people who didn’t even know, don’t even believe, that the Bible was used to defend slavery, when it in fact was.  People in North Carolina and several other states are on the verge of banning gay relationships in their states’ constitutions, in part (at least in North Carolina) to “protect the caucasian race.”  Missouri Republicans want to pass a law banning teachers from even mentioning gays.

Things were so much easier when they were clearly the bad guys and we were clearly the good guys.
