We say we do, but the evidence here and elsewhere suggests otherwise.
-The New Jersey legislature has granted gay couples the right to
get civil-unionized. Err...? If they are to be granted all of the rights of marriage, why not just let them get married? You know, I agree on with the hard-leftists on this one; a parallel institution will cause confusion and lead indirectly to inequality. 'Course, we're already seeing some buyer's remorse
-Ex-president Jimmy Carter is taking heat
for his new book. As in, "How DARE he accuse Israel of practicing apartheid????" Umm...hello!? Anyone who comes in cold and reads about the situation for more than five seconds will reach the same conclusion. He likewise argues that the Palestinian side is not well-represented in the US. Totally true. I wouldn't sign off on the creation of a "Students for the Preservation of Israel" or some such group back in college because there wasn't a equal group supporting Palestine. (Not that my objections made one whit of a difference.) Besides, none of the fact-checkers have effectively disproved Carter's main thesis. He can still be right even if he doesn't remember his dates, you know.
