It's How We Honor God and Country

As the Supreme Court prepares to weigh in on the Defense of Marriage decision, we are reminded that gays are merely the latest group to come in for a healthy dose of American condemnation and discrimination. Many other groups have had their turn in the past.... Catholics in the 1920s, Jews in the 1930s, Japanese-Americans in the 1940s, Blacks and Reds (Negroes and Communists) in the 1950s, feminists in the 1960s, anti-war Hippies in the 1970s, pro-choice liberals in the 1980s, Mexican-Americans in the 1990s, Muslim-Americans in the 2000s, and gays on and off continuously for the last two hundred years. Some group or other is always on the American shit-list. Despising a minority segment of the American population is the main way to assert ones righteous patriotism. It's how we choose to honor God and country.
Only Evangelical Republican heterosexual white males of European descent are immune to discrimination.
