Pat Boone spouts off

This is not a political commentary blog, but some things can't be ignored.

Last night Keith Olbermann quoted Pat Boone on his "Worst Person in the World" segment.

Boone said: "Look around. Watch your evening news. Read your newspaper. Have you not seen the awful similarity between what happened in Mumbai and what's happening right now in our streets," Boone asked referring to the Proposition 8 protests at Mormon churches as "riots."

Wow! I helped organize one of the thousands of Prop 8 protests. I guess that makes me a terrorist. But gee whiz, Pat, I didn't kill anyone. I swear I didn't.

After I saw that segment, I sat here wondering just why "being gay" brings out such violent, vitriolic hatred in some people, most of whom seem to be otherwise good, religious people. What in the world have gay people done to deserve such hatred? or such unfair treatment?

But then I guess the Jews have wondered that throughout their long history as well.
