In honor of today being the first day Gay Marriage is legal in California, I leave you this inspirational quote of the day from the book, What Liberals Believe,” edited by William Martin.Ã‚Â It’s not a quote per se, but an exchange between conservative stalwart Bill Bennett and the Daily Show’s Jon Stewart.
Bill Bennet: “Look, its a debate about whether you think marriage is between a man and a woman.”
Stewart: I disagree. I think it’s a debate about whether you think gay peope are part of the human condition or just a random fetish.” January 8, 2007.
William Martin has since become a fan of this site and the book is a tribute to his hard work.Ã‚Â Mr. Martin is already gearing up for the next edition of this book for 2012 and he wants your help.Ã‚Â See his note below.
When IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m searching for great quotes, I look to the fearless media such as Ã¢â‚¬Å“The Liberal OCÃ¢â‚¬Â who speak truth to power and stand up for what they believe. These are the people I admire, men and women who take on the bullies of the world.
To quote Bill Moyers Ã¢â‚¬â€œ the most quoted person in What Liberals Believe Ã¢â‚¬â€œ IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m thankful when I find people who Ã¢â‚¬Å“know the difference between a weather vane and a compass.”
So come up with a truly inspiraion quote and send add it to the comments of this message and future inspirational quotes posts we’ll have here.Ã‚Â If you quote is selected, Bill (and his publisher Sky Horse Publishing) will send you a free copy of this new book.
Please provide the quote, who said it, the date of the quote and an Internet link to verify.
