Well, so, feel free to give me links showing me the evidence and everything, really, I'm open to it...
I just always hated it that he seemed to support that legislation, and I am not merely speaking in 'hindsight' from seeing a president (or presidential candidate who has a good chance of nomination really, for that matter) finally stop with the contortions in finding an acceptable "position" on the issue of same-sex marriage.
You know?!
I didn't say, please notice, that I'd always found Bill questionable about *gay rights* generally...*just* that I hated it that he seemed fine with DOMA.

Unfortunately, it was likely part of some dumb compromise to get Republicans onboard to support something Clinton wanted to do. I saw a thing on TV with him a few months back where he stated he doesn't stand by that legislation now and thinks it was a bad idea. But of course, that doesn't change any crap that happened in relation to that act over the years. It was a very stupid move on his part to even support such a thing to begin with, yes.

Anywho, glad to hear it's been ruled unconstitutional by that court . As for the video...*Shudders*. I don't think I could stand to listen to that. Children reciting back bigoted views is one of the creepiest, most disturbing things in the world.

Ah, yes, thanks for the extra info on his current position--I missed recent interviews with him, even as I would imagine he might now think it was a bad idea!
And I agree about how creepy it is to see little kids reciting such nastiness, so I haven't even been able to stand the idea of clicking play on this one
too sad and disturbing and anger-inducing ultimately....

what's more disturbing is how the crowd leaps to it's feet the moment the boy says the word "homo."

Oh, dear .

And yet we can never seem to figure out why some children grow up turning out to be nasty people.

Of course, but at least the adults have made a choice (regardless of how poor, and all the other adjectives you can use, that choice is) and can make that choice. A four year old child can't.

I watched the segment on youtube

Jason Alexander apologizes for calling cricket a 'gay sport' on 'The Late Late Show' | News Briefs | EW.com

I really think he hurt himself professionally, good that he apologized

I just watched it... what a massive overreaction. People need to calm down.

Maybe if he'd said "only anal sex loving faggots play cricket", then sure. But I was only offended because I love cricket and think its better than baseball.

I watched it and we have reached different conclusions.

I am calm.

Strangely enough, I wondered if he'd get any flak for that when I saw that episode.

Yeah, I'm with cobl, pretty sure he wasn't meaning it in an insulting way.

Put yourself in a gay man's shoes and see if you would be offended by that comment. Please be more sensitive, irvine.
