@Truthspokenhere: I found the responses on this thread respectful , supportive and hopeful and am not sure where you see derogatory or hateful remarks. I also assume you read the piece and may not have connected with this mans world view-life experience. Simply understand that people who don't feel the way you do are disappointed in being treated like second class citizens. However, like all struggles for equality in this country it takes time to educate and inform people, especially those who are intolerant of a lifestyle that makes them uncomfortable. Eventually the tide will turn and more people will recognize that denying equal marriage rights to consenting adults is discrimination. I hope when that day comes and we have the "power of the vote" that you are able to "embrace the outcome" with as much dignity and forbearance as Mr. Yeoman expressed and as his supporters posted.
Great Job Mr. Yeoman, I appreciate your eloquence and character.
@Truthspokenhear: It doesn't mean you're right either. If only those who opposed equal marriage rights practiced " peaceful and non degrading measures" we wouldn't have to have laws for hate crimes and have a significant portion of our communities discriminated against, because that's what this is: discrimination.
