Quote of the Day: John W. Smart

“Until gay rights advocates get off the Obama kool-aid…no progress will be made. A petition will not move this debate either. It is time for non-violent civil disobedience. There was no ballot initiative in Selma. Start with sit-ins at courthouses. We must be brave now. The first step is to STOP the errant nonsense of ballot props. We are forced to defend against bigots, and beg people to treat us as equals. It is degrading. Rosa Parks did not ask the voters to approve of her seat on the bus.” ~ John W. Smart

(Mr. Smart's comments respond to an article about the elections, on the California Ripple Effect Blog)
