Not the Trail of Tears

Since I often write in praise of the Front Porch Republic, I’m going to have to respond when they jump the tracks of reason and compare themselves to Indians whose babies are ripped from their arms at gunpoint and carried away to be re-educated into the white culture.

Ummm… Well, I responded in the comments there – to whatever extent the response isn’t self-evident… I can only ask that they and their sympathizers take a deep breath and a step back and think about what they’re saying.

OK … to avoid charges that I am responding “culturally” and “sub-rationally” I’ll point out that denying marriage rights hurts people, children and families (and in some rare cases results in babies being ripped from their families’ arms and raised by the “straight culture”).
