"Gay Rights ARE Civil Rights"

Julian Bond is to be praised for his speech, to which you ALL should take the time to listen ! His message is, "Gay rights are civil rights!" and should be afforded without limitation. Here s the link to the Advocate for the video so you can watch and listen to it yourself.
And here Bond's statement for the NAACP on the infamous infringement of civil rights by California's proposition 8:
"The NAACP has long opposed any proposal that would alter the federal or state constitutions for the purpose of excluding any groups or individuals from guarantees of equal protections," said NAACP chairman Julian Bond in a press release. "We urge the legislature to declare that Proposition 8 did not follow the proper protective process and should be overturned as an invalid alteration that vitiated crucial constitutional safeguards and fundamental American values, threatening civil rights and all vulnerable minorities."
