See BS

Screen Shot 2010-10-01 At 3.20.18 Pm"But, even as a wave of openness has spread throughout the country, there is an undertow. Gay bashing is still with us. There is still an otherness that goes along with being a homosexual that gives license to all kinds of prejudice. Ask any gay soldier or marine. Sexual orientation trumps love of country. Sometimes the preachers who shout loudest about the sin of being gay are closeted themselves. Being gay can cost you your family, maybe your employment. Tyler Clementi was caught on camera kissing another man. It cost him everything."

-Harry Smith, CBS News
