"Forcing their moral convictions"... [LINK]
In addition, it seems presumptuous to call gay rights the "last great civil rights chapter in modern American history," since that necessarily excludes subsequent marginalized groups. My letter to the Globe:
It seems rather obtuse for Abby Collier to cite Gerry Studds on the "fight for gay and lesbian equality," while in the same letter she criticizes conservative Republicans for "forcing their moral convictions" on the rest of us. Recall that Studds was censured by Congress after forcing his own brand of morality on an teenage staff member.
