Having your rights and fighting against them too

Boston.com / News / Local / Mass. / Adviser to GOP had gay wedding: "Finkelstein, who was identified as gay in a Boston magazine story nine years ago, was quoted as saying in The New York Times that he married in December to secure the same rights granted other married couples, such as hospital visitation and healthcare benefits. He and his partner have been together for 40 years, the newspaper reported yesterday. The marriage was a surprising move by a figure closely associated with conservative politics. Philip W. Johnston, chairman of the Massachusetts Democratic Party, said the marriage was glaringly inconsistent with Finkelstein's work. ''He's a hypocrite,' Johnston said. ''For years he's worked for right-wing candidates who demonize gays and lesbians, and who have tried to prevent gays and lesbians from being married.'"
What a sad little man. Can you imagine the fear and self-loathing that he must carry with him? Closets are very ugly places to be. I hope Arthur escapes his closets.
