Another draft to fix

I saw Love Leads the Way about the first Seeing Eye dog and Morris Frank in Memphis. He was adventitiously blinded from an accident. I cried when Buddy, his dog was in pain reminding me of Merry. In 1936, a law was passed to allow dog guides to enter the public sphere. It is not any differnet than access to African-Americans, disabled folk gay people and the like. We must value all people. We must not suppress any ideas. The political ads now which talk about freedom and how people should be free to just allow straight people and deny gay people employment or housing is no different than business can discriminate against women, disabled folk, just change the word. I detest that kind of politics where black is white, and white is black. Freedom is another word for someone who wants to justify their racist, homophobic, anti-woman rhetoric. Self-defense if you feel (not that you know) someone who is young or another race is going to attack you, so you kill that person? The Southern Poverty Law Center speaks about the rise of violence since President Obama has been elected. I don't like many of his policies, but it is not about his race. My God, will we ever change? We think that able-bodied people are better, smarter, more competent, have more information, are quicker than a disabled person. Look past your foggy thinking at who people are, not your prejudices which bog you down in religious dogma and your interpretation of the Bible. I respect that you may have the right to deny women birth control, but not when you deny someone's right to speak and call her a "slut" Thanks for listening. I don't want to offend anyone, and I have problems with intolerant people. When I was about 13, Gerald Mack said he hateed most "toleration" a "tolerance" which was still pretty racist to him as a blind, African-American who I went to school with. I was teased about being Jewish as a teen-ager because people did not understand it. Fear, hubris, greed, spoils, plunder, these are things we must work on because equality is what we should value.
