They're So Special

Religious fundamentalists oppose what they call special rights and privileges for gays. It seems not to bother those who claim a special relationship with god that the rights they would deny our fellow citizens sound suspiciously like those of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Their storyline frames -- to use a word of the moment -- the conflict as between greedy gays who want something the rest of us are denied. At it's foundation, it's a cynical appeal to egalitarianism.

Now, a series of articles published in the New York Times, demonstrates who it is, in our society, that really benefits from special privileges... and it isn't gays.
