If you're at all interested in the gay marriage issue, this new release may be of interest. Actually, if you're interested in civil rights, you'll want to read what this guy has to say.
News Release: New York, NY (PRWEB) December 2, 2009 -- The President of Interweave of South Jersey issues a bold challenge today to key conservative media personalities. David Shaman unapologetically asserts that there exists no legitimate argument against gay marriage in the United States based on logic or reason.
“Plenty of articulate people advocated for slavery and segregation until they were finally proven wrong under the bright light of reason. The fear-tactic arguments- especially the favorite ‘slippery-slope’- simply hold no water,” adds Shaman “I think the American public agrees with me, even though many are intimidated to speak out.
Specifically mentioning Bill O’Reilly, Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh and Michael Savage, David Shaman openly challenges any of these “authorities” to meet him in the public arena to stand the test of true intellectual honesty.
Shaman quotes Abraham Lincoln:
“Public sentiment is everything. With public sentiment nothing can fail; without it nothing can succeed.” Shaman further declares that the spurious arguments wielded by many pundits are just “smoke and mirrors” which are easily dispelled under honest analysis. “We must educate the public in order to put this bigotry behind us...” declares Shaman, “The distortions perpetuated by leading conservative media personalities are dangerous and serve only to distract from the facts of the situation”.
