Yes, continue to be a bigot

Third Way has done a good thing by reaching out to the evangelical community to assure them that new hate crimes legislation will not result in preachers being prosecuted for calling homosexual an abomination or saying that homosexuals will burn in Hell.

Because, no, we don't want to prosecute people for their beliefs or their speech, only actions that harm others.

However, I should point out what Third Way can't: if you think that homosexuality is an abomination and that homosexuals will go to Hell, you're a bigot. Thinking that something's in your religion doesn't make it right, unbigoted, moral or any less stupid than it is.

The Wandering Governor

Imagine this: Bill Clinton went missing for 5 days. His office lied about where he was. Hillary said she didn't know where he was. Some said out hiking. Some said just taking some time off. Some said they saw his SUV parked at the airport. Then he came back from Argentina and admitted to having had an affair.

I don't really care about Mark Sanford's private life.

But Bill Clinton got far worse treatment from the press, for far less a personal transgression.

Just sayin'.
