HomoQuotable – Jimmy LaSalvia

“The decision by the leadership of the gay left to support the Arizona boycott over an issue totally unrelated to gay rights shows just how beholden they are to the union bosses.

“It’s kind of like a kid coming to school saying, ‘The dog ate my homework.’ It’s childish. This is what children do until they mature. They don’t accept responsibility.
