Subject: RE: Free the Pussy Riot Three
SC, I suggested dialogue and compromise on issues that shape elections. I mentioned two such issues specifically, gay marriage and abortion. A large number of voters in the US decide which imperialist plutocrat to support on the basis of the candidate's alleged position for or against gay marriage and/or abortion.

I said nothing about seeking common ground with advocates of gay beating and imprisonment, honor killing, or wife beating. As far as I know, there are no candidates in the US who openly support any of those positions, and I'm surprised that you extended what I said to include them. Or, since you did include them, why you didn't also include abusing puppies and kittens.
