Gay Family Confronts Homophobic Mayor

Confronts may not be the best word here.
This lesbian mom handled this with a great deal of respect and class.  I wish I could handle homophobia with such grace.  She wanted this to be an opportunity for her family and for the mayor.
At a city council meeting last week, Amy Weber, with her female spouse and daughters in tow, gently prodded Troy, Mich. mayor Janice Daniels about an antigay Facebook posting Daniels' wrote.
Daniels was elected in November as a Tea Party candidate; in June, she wrote the following Facebook message: "I think I'm going to throw away my I Love New York carrying bag now that queers can get married there," in response to New York state's decision to legalize marriage equality.
