I Agree With Andrew Sullivan

I sure hope that the weatherman in hell is checking his Doppler Radar because I agree with Andrew Sullivan. Not on everything. Just on this statement about President Bush and his attempts to demonize gays and our families with the Federal Marriage Amendment:

Oddly, I don’t think his presidency will be seen by historians as a major obstacle to gay progress. The power of this social movement is far bigger than one president. Yes, he and his acolytes managed to strip gay couples in many states of the promise of equality for a very long time. But they couldn’t amend the constitution to stigmatize us; and they couldn’t stop our equality being achieved in one state, at least, with more on the verge, and across the rest of the civilized world. Bush also united the gay community more profoundly than at any time in my adulthood. He brought us all together – left and right – against his policies. That was an achievement. Whatever oxygen gay Republicans had before he came long he extinguished.
