To: Seeing More Clearly Now
I have a gay brother. He lives in San Francisco and whenever possible only interacts with his gay brethren. They are like an echo chamber with their views. Over the years he has become more militant and extreme in his views (like me, but in a different direction), but hey, he's my brother and I was ordered to love him. I did my best to tolerate his views, but I have reached a breaking point:
He told me that it is common knowledge in his community that the reason AIDS was not nipped in the bud and eradicated was that Ronald Reagan denied funding for AIDS research because he hated gays and wanted them to die. He was sincere and truly believed it himself.
That kind of kookiness is beyond the pale for me, and I finally wrote him off. I was planning on naming my first-born Reagan anyway!

Sounds like it’s time you FLATTENED your brother’s nose for him.
