"...[they're] loud, they're obnoxious, they're disgusting and they should get out of San Francisco"

This sounds rather inflammatory, doesn't it? I'm sure you think that this quote was said by some intolerant, bigoted fundamentalist Christian about the homosexual/bisexual/transgendered population of San Francisco. Right? I mean, only Christians would be so mean-spirited as to say something as obviously hateful as this.

Wrong. This was said by Democratic Assemblymen Mark Leno, and he was talking about young Christians who were assembling in San Francisco for a rally. Yes, that's right - a person who supposedly favors tolerance as the new virtue was caught saying something that sounds extremely intolerant. I mean, it doesn't get much more intolerant than to tell someone they should "get out," does it? Read about it here. This is old news (the rally was held in March), but it's still important to know.
