Do you know, or can you guess, which nationally ranked politician- a man with presidential dreams- way back in 1978 had the guts to publicly oppose a ballot initiative to ban gays and lesbians from teaching in public schools? He wrote a newspaper editorial saying, “Whatever else it is, homosexuality is not a contagious disease like the measles. Prevailing scientific opinion is that an individual’s sexuality is determined at a very early age and that a child’s teachers do not really influence this.” Remember, this was 1978.
Think you know? Ok, I've got another one: Which US president stood by silently while one of our dependent allies permitted death squads to freely roam the streets, torturing gays to death? Got a name in mind?
Ok... now read Why Reagan Was a Better Friend to Gays Than Obama
