the tyranny of the minority

Brian Tiemann is able to relate:

I now know, first-hand, why moderate Muslims haven't been heard in huge numbers. It's because how in the hell can they feel anything but despair, caught between one extreme-- compatriots who espouse radical, irrational dogma, yet are "family"-- and another-- people determined to defend themselves against the dogma on the opposite side by whatever means necessary?

He's speaking about the gay-marriage amendment that Bush has come out of the closet for in support. I think that Brian might find these other anecdotes equally enlightening.
