Coming October 2022: "The Last Folk Hero: The Life and Myth of Bo Jackson"

If you watch one video today …

… make it this one. Being 100 percent serious—an inarguable defense of same-sex marriage by the remarkable Zach Wahls, a 19-year-old University of Iowa student.

America is America.

Bigotry is bigotry.

Those opposing same-sex marriage are, in 2011, bigots. That’s the best way to say it, because it’s true. Fact: Two loving adults in a relationship are two loving adults in a relationship—sexuality be damned.

If you are one of the people fighting against gay marriage, you are fighting against history. This is undeniable. One day, in the not-too-distant future, you and your position will settle nicely alongside George Wallace and Bull Connor.
