Interesting clip ... although his arguement sounds good it is flawed. He is comparing womens rights and slavery to gay rights in the context of why it is still ok to use religion to come against gay rights when we relaized the error in using them against the other ... well only some did.

For starters (I write this from a historical perspective not a religous one) ... All through the bible and jewish tradition the woman was to be highly honored and protected. They were considered the source of their husbands success and place in society. Women are the very moral fabric of a nation. Unfortunately ignorant men, not biblical or jewish teaching, is what held women back!!

Regarding slavery ... Suffice it to say it was strong moral christian men and women that stood up to this abuse ... they knew without question that from a biblical or jewish standpoint it was wrong.

Copmparing gay rights to what women have had to go through and what slaves had to indure is an insult. Both of the latter where forced upon them with out their freedom to choose and they had to fight for what was right and moral. Living a gay lifestyle is a choice in the sense that no one has forced them to live this lifestyle.

By the way ... just as a point of reference ... did you know that when the vote came down to abolish slavery it was the republicans who brought it forth? Not one democrat voted to abolish slavery. I find that very interesting in light of the political landscape of today.

To review the views on slavery by both the democrats and the republicans go to
