Eric, just to clarify, the piece that Dan wrote has nothing to do with liberal v. conservative or Republican v. Democrat or anybody v. Trump. The only point the piece makes that involves Mr. Gunn is that, just as he is judged for something from his past to the point that it is allowed to negate his present and his future, so are those on the registry judged for an action from their past which, even though they may have changed totally, as has Mr. Gunn, often negates their present and future lives. The analogy between Mr. Gunn’s situation and the situation of many registrants is totally relevant. It is the entire point.
Please don’t make everything political. Some things are; many things are. But not everything is.
