What is the deal with intolerance? The conservative nonsense is about being able to do what you want without interference fromanyone, BUT, when people do that the conservative stance is NO! You have to do what we think or you're a bad person. I think it is pretty obvious what is bad in this equation.

I signed the petition for Ryan Andresen. Denying someone (because they're gay) something they earned is just plain stupid.
