Wrong on tollerance

There is a story from California about students being harangued about their private beliefs about human sexuality.While I sympathize with tolerance for gays, I am against invading private political beliefs. Intellectual freedom is part of the liberties accorded to individuals under the first amendment.

In truth this type of buffoonish behavior does not advance the cause of gay rights. The cause of gay rights was advanced when reasonable people had rational conversations with their coworkers and friends. It is hard to mindlessly hate the guy at the water cooler unless he did something crazy.

Gays and Lesbians are the people who live a few doors away. They are the eccentric Uncle or the independent Aunt. The special people in our daily lives do not need intellectual thugs acting in their name.
