anderson is a nice guy. I know him well. But he's 32 years old, which by today's standards is very late to be 'coming out.'
the reality is that he's running for office in chattanooga and decided to get out in front of a story that would inevitably come out anyway.
good move politically but not one particularly deserving of praise.
Obviously, as I've said before, he deserves no condemnation either...but all the talk about how courageous his decision was, given the timing, is also misplaced.
"according to Osama bin Laden and the al-Qaida masterminds behind the terrorist attacks, were due to the U.S. military and economic sanctions against Iraq, the presence of American troops in Saudi Arabia and America's support of Israel."
Oh great, the old 'chickens come home to roost" twaddle, and on the conservative side of the page.
Islamofacists are clearly rational actors. Therefore, if we just meet all their demands and stop provoking them they'll leave us alone.
Anyone who buys this needs to read Christopher Hitchens' essay on Jefferson and the Barbary Pirates.
It's dusts this silly idea off once and for all.
Not sure if anyone at the paper has noticed but Drew Johnson is not a conservative.
Hes a libertarian, which is altogether different.
So we got lefites on the left side and libertarians on the right side and conservatives are just out of luck.
anderson deserves neither praise nor condemnation for being gay.
the gay community wants equal rights and treatment.
as a sraight guy im neither lauded nor persecuted for being straight.
For a minute there i didn't think you were going to find a way to work in Jesus on this one. well done.
Not sure who is more fixated on our lord and saviour...you or Orrmeanslight. Lol
Hammond is one of those few county officials this newpaper is allowed to scrutinize...there are many others who are far more unscrupulous that you'll never hear a word about.
