Just to make we're all on the same page: I don't defend the AFA in any way shape or form. As far as I'm concerned they're all a bunch of bigoted idiots who have nothing better to do than persecute, stereotype and harass other people in the name of "family values."
Which, in my opinion is a load of hogwash and filth and an awful way to spend one's time. That they are trying to use gays as a scapegoat for other's lower income is ridiculous and disgusting. It's comparable to a certain other bit of persecution that took place earlier this century. A friend of mine linked me to the AFA myths page a few years ago. It was hurtful and disgusting and made me physically ill. Literally.
I giggle about it all now... we have to laugh to keep ourselves from crying sometimes. So that's what I do. I also eat lemon sorbet -- a cool, tasty and refreshing treat.
