Kara, I think you are a person of great compassion for the needs of the less fortunate in the world. I think that is a wonderful value to have. But it sounds like the underlying message here is that the leaders of some of our LGBT support groups don't deserve their salaries. I don't know how much they should make for the work they do, but I feel really uncomfortable throwing stones at those who work for our equality.
I think Joe Solmonese is a great leader and does a wonderful job as head of the Human Rights Campaign. Until he proves otherwise, he's got my support.
