    Thomas, most of us around these parts of the interwebs will agree that the passage of Prop 8 is a failing of the authentic American spirit. We’d like to see equal rights for everyone. It hasn’t happened yet, sadly.

    Does that mean that the election of Obama wasn’t historic? Does that mean that people can’t celebrate an extraordinary moment in American history.

    While it’s not right to ignore a real failing, I hope you’ll agree that it’s also not right to deny others a celebration.


    P.S. If we can’t have joy until everyone has won their dignity, it’s going to be a joyless world. I don’t want to live there. So I’m going to have some joy when I see it coming my way.
