More on GayPatriot
"In the interest of constructive political discourse and open and free discussion, GayPatriot.org and those responsible for its content always urge its readers to practice non-violence in their daily lives and political activities. No posting on this site shall be construed as advocating for violence against anyone or any organization."Seems we might have been on to something when earlier today we pointed out this quote from GayPatriot:
"WANTED! Let's do something about these gay terrorists who have infected our community with their hatred and self-loathing bigotry of gay Americans who wish to live their lives in peace."I took him to task over using the word terrorist to describe John Aravosis and Michael Rogers. When I read this statement on his blog (which included their pictures), I wondered if a call to "do something about these gay terrorists" might seem to some as a call to do harm against the two pictured men. I certainly don't think that was GayPatriot's intent. But, there are some wack-jobs out there who just might. I think he could have made his point without using the intentionally inflammatory word terrorist. That being said, and it seems this might be close to the point from the above posting on his blog, I don't think this should chase him from the blogosphere. All of us who publically write do have a certain amount of responsibility, but we cannot and should not be taken to task simply because some nutso out there might go off the deep end. That could happen with just about anything written by anyone on any subject. So to GayPatriot I say that if this is the case as to why you stopped writing, then please come back. Your voice in the debate is an important one.
