    No working to change the government is our civic duty. Acting to destroy it is something else.

    Not at all. I actually think less of him than I do of people like you. Didn't say anything that would imply such a thing either, but you go right ahead throwing out attack nonsense foolishly thinking it helps your cause.

    You mean a professional writer of fiction used overwrought language to drive a point? Heavens to Betsy! Whatever will we do?

    You know there's more than one way to destroy a sitting government, right? Most of them aren't even the least little bit violent.

    Because the artist in question has the same views as OSC. Like begets like.

    That's a pretty genius solution!

    Mr. Sprouse certainly has every right to reject this assignment (although I am interested in if he is violating any sort of contract by refusing this). I hope DC does not use this as a chance to chicken out and indeed does find a replacement artist. My interest in the first issue has dropped with this announcement, but I will still pick it up as I have high hopes for out of new 52 continuity stories about Superman.

    I'm not demonizing ampersand. I am responding to his statements with facts.
    It's was the 1000s of rights that I rolled my eyes at. And I don't think earned income credit equality is the argument that's going to win over the hearts and minds

    NOM is not merely opposed to gay marriage.

    NOM equates pederasty with homosexuality: National Organization for Marriage Continues to Spread Lies About Gays | Southern Poverty Law Center

    NOM spokesperson says gay couples who want to be parents through sperm donation should be jailed: National Organization for jailing lesbian parents? Yep. Zinnia Jones

    That he hold those views specific in the 1990 quote. Absolutely not. I think it makes him wrong but he says he doesn't hold those views so I assume he doesn't.

    So again we just wave away the obvious meaning of what he said. Got it.
