'From fanaticism to barbarism is only one step' - Diderot

"... we were just having fun. We thought it was funny."

US Senate candidate for Rhode Island Stephen P. Laffey clarifying why he wrote articles denigrating gays whilst he was a college student. He describes copies of the articles he wrote, which were sent to the Providence Journal anonymously, as attempts to smear him. I always thought a smear involved implicating someone in things they hadn't actually done, not things they themselves admit having done.

We are all helpless with laughter. No really.
