    tolerate

    Good news for our homosexual friends as a Maryland bill to ban gay marriage died in committee today. At least we know that a move for truly equal rights is making progress, but this positive bulletin is met by a reminder of what really needs to be engraved into this nation. Hundreds held vigil for a young, gay male who had been beaten unconscious outside a hotel in Santa Fe. As the AP wrote...
    The attackers later followed Maestas [the 21 homosexual] to a hotel, knocked him to the ground and repeatedly struck him in the face and head, according to investigators.
    I think, and I know many agree, that gay marriage would be a step in the right direction, but what we need is to have tolerance. People could start by not bludgeoning young men because they are different, or turning them into outcasts because they are not like the rest. And perhaps our President could create a stiffer penalty for hate crimes, rather than turn his back on such violent acts.
