Yet the cartoon also seems appropriate; when faced with ignorance and fear exploited by the unscrupulous for political advantage, what can you do but laugh?
This particular spasm of intolerance is on the way out; even our oh-so-careful president is being vigorously "evolved" by the pressures in his own base toward accepting the full equality of gay citizens. The arc of the universe is indeed bending toward justice, at least here. But living the arc is long and painful.
Cartoon snatched from KNOWHomo.
