The Gay Divorce
AgendaBender has several posts (most recent, previous with a link back to, er, this blog (this blog, not Dave Barry referring to himself as "this blog"), more previous, and most previous) dealing with web-located negative comments about the new Episopalian bishop's having divorced his wife after he came out of the closet as a gay man.
I have to add that, straight or closet-case, that Derbyshire guy at The Corner seems like quite the Drama Queen. After receiving some negative e-mail from people telling him to shut up, Derbyshire said:
But I now know something I did not know 48 hours ago, or knew only vaguely and imperfectly: gay fascism is real, and strong, and determined. If this Political Correctness cannot be stopped, we are going to lose our freedoms.PC inanity can be real and irritating, but real threats to freedom like, say, not honoring Habeus Corpus -- or ongoing denial of basic human rights to, say, gay people -- are a lot more substantially troubling than PC inanity, if you ask me.
Like I said, "Drama Queen."
