"Let your downhills carry you uphill."
newsweek:

A reader sent this message to our Ask box this morning, referring to our post with Tomasky’s quote, “We are past the point in this country now where one’s views on homosexuality can be called a ‘matter of conscience.’ No. Being against equality here isn’t a matter of conscience anymore than having been against racial equality in 1955 was. It is just bigotry plain and simple.” 
We dropped the tumblr’s name off the message because it was sent privately, but still wanted to share. The reader is of course free to whatever views they please—that’s America and our country values that—but it still suggests you’re a bigot if you are opposed to equal rights for all Americans.

Newsweek, you handled this perfectly.
