Corporate America has become a great champion of gay rights

  You may have noticed — or perhaps not — that almost every time a state government anywhere in America entertains the notion of adopting laws that might infringe upon the rights of gay people,  the political backlash these days comes in part from big businesses.

Frank Bruni has the story HERE: Take a look at this list of countries: Belgium, Canada, Spain, Argentina, Portugal, Brazil, France, Uruguay, Luxembourg and Ireland. Name two things that they have in common. They don’t share a...
