"Gay marriage is a laudable goal. Repealing DADT has merit."
If one were to replace 'gay marriage' with another subject, say Latinos or African Americans, this statements would be considered racist by some, as would their author.
As Lemos actually reads, I'm struck by any hint of moral outrage over the fact that GLBT's do not have equal rights. Indeed, the way the right to serve as well as equal rights for families are treated like mere trifles, some may consider the statements and their author to be homophobic. Who knows?
