Thanks for covering the story of how this book, Operation Marriage, came to be. I'll be donating a portion of my royalties to Southern Poverty Law Center, which has a long history of fighting for civil rights and I am still researching a possible partnership with another organization.

I would encourage everyone who sympathises with the situation of these children and their "two mom's" to do everything they can to help them.

And in so doing, leave the rest of us alone.

We have a national debt that is 70% now of our GDP

We have filth like the Penn State case

2% of the US population is gay--we have much more important issues to deal with

Americans have a prevalent sense of gay tedium

It is time to focus upon what is important for our kids economic and security future
