"But whatever happens with Maine’s Question 1, I want Maine schools to teach about gays getting married. Other states’ schools, too.
Part of my reason for wanting this has nothing whatsoever to do with my support for marriage equality. I also want schools to teach about genocide, and I’m pretty staunchly anti-genocide. Schools are supposed to inform students about what’s happening in the world. For better or worse, same-sex marriage is happening in the world. Even if it is taken away in Maine, it will keep happening elsewhere. Indeed, even if it were somehow eliminated everywhere, it would remain part of our history. Students need to know this."
John's "What's Morally Wrong With Homosexuality" talk is one of the riches, most intelligent presentations on LGBT issues you can possibly see. If you ever get the chance to see him do it, please go. I've been to the talk four times. I've also watched him debate Glenn Stanton before, an excellent presentation as well.
John isn't just a pretty face (and trust me, he's very pretty), he's one of our brightest voices. I can't wait until Rachel Maddow, Anderson Cooper, Joy Behar and Keith Olberman discover him and start having him on. John Corvino, Daniel Choi and Rachel Maddow. Those are really the most intelligent and compelling voices in our community and they deserve MAD props!
