The Gays Have No Right to Out Bigots!

You would have thought Washington’s Referendum 71 was about gay rights. But more importantly, it’s about the First Amendment! As in, the right to spread lies on television. Oh, and the right to protect the privacy of hatred funders.

As doctoral candidate Stephen Colbert notes, anti-gay folks didn’t have a choice in their hatred. They were born this way. So how can we take away their fundamental right to anonymously infringe upon the civil liberties of others?
