The courage of Gavin Gay

Gavin Newsom, the lavenderphilic San Francisco mayor, is putting his conservative and Christian counterparts across the country to shame. If he’s willing to stand up for what he believes is right, how can men like George Bush not do the same in being willing to exert the powers of their office to the utmost in order to end evils like abortion and the income tax charade?

No wonder our country is in such decline, when it is only those who believe in evil who show the courage of their convictions. Sure, there’s probably a cynical element – after only a few months in office, Gavin Gay now has national stature and the assurance of love from the national media, a brilliant political move – but that doesn’t take away from the fact that the man is making a concrete gesture that is having a genuine impact on the national debate.
