Ryan Amado's curator insight, December 11, 2013 1:38 AM

This is mind boggling.  It is one thing if you do not think homosexuals should get married based on one's religion.  It is another to believe that they should be thrown in jail and treated the same as real criminals.  Just like one is allowed to be against it without question, one may be for it without question.  The fact that these people still view it as a crime is rather disgusting.

Creator of ‘The Wire’ says ‘There are now two Americas. My country is a horror show.’ | Daily Crew | Scoop.it

America is a country that is now utterly divided when it comes to its society, its economy, its politics. There are definitely two Americas.

About 20 blocks away is another America entirely. It’s astonishing how little we have to do with each other, and yet we are living in such proximity.
