a video that tells THE TRUTH (tm)

Why is it, whenever I'm happy and excited, someone has to shit all over my cheerios by sending me something like this?

Whoa. Whose school system has padded captain's chairs in the buses? I wanna go there!

Talk about Missing The Point. The Day of Silence is not about bringing your bedroom habits into the classroom; it's about not treating other people like shit. They yell "we're being silenced by the gaaaay agenda!", but all I hear is "I wanna be allowed to treat other people like shit, but suddenly people are saying no to me! Waaaahhhh!"

And if gay people are more likely to be drunk, depressed, and/or suicidal, it's because they are treated like shit. We can help stop them being depressed suicidal drunks by not treating them like shit.

If "our faith" is "treating other people like shit," then yes, every person in America should stand up against it. If "our faith" is "trying to be better people through Christ," then wtf is the problem?

the funny thing about this video is, 95% of the narration could be used on the opposite side of the argument.

i especially like the bit about just because something is a longstanding tradition doesn't make it correct.
