I know that the country is pretty polarized, but this is going over the top.

Gary Boston and Jeff Adler of are approaching Broadway performers, particularly gay men, and asking them not to perform on September 1, when convention delegates have been given tickets to eight shows, including 42nd Street, Aïday, Bombay Dreams, and The Phantom of the Opera.

They also want shops, restaurants, and even room service shut down on Sept. 1.

So now people are to be denied basic services and entertainment because of the beliefs expressed by some members of their party. This goes way beyond booing an entertainer or firing an spokeswoman who publicly compared the President to her pubic hair.
