The Advocate's Kerry Eleveld sums up my feelings about the Rick Warren debacle the best.
Does anybody else feel like they are in an abusive relationship?
It seems like every time lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people start feeling a sense of hope, President-elect Obama, America’s single greatest civil rights advancement in a century, manages to deal a blow to the community.
The Politico and others who claim that our screams of pain are about flexing gay political muscle or "looking for a fight," don't have a clue about what is really happening here. This isn't politics. Obama's pick of someone who campaigned against our rights -- a person who equates our deepest love and our families with sexual perversion -- isn't political. It's personal, and it hurts.
