"In the recent vice presidential debate here in St. Louis, Governor Sarah Palin hastened to assure lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Americans that "I am tolerant." That does not reassure me in the least that I would find equal protections in a McCain-Palin administration. Instead, I take offense. As my friend Pamela puts it: You tolerate a stench. You respect me."
"I look forward to a world where the diversity of humanity will be celebrated instead of tolerated. That is the key to building a world in which every child can thrive and grow toward wholeness and happiness. I believe we will move a step closer to that goal by electing Barack Obama president of the United States on November 4."
