Barbra Streisand Quote: How can we accept a situation in which there are no longer orchestras, choruses, libraries or art classes to nourish our children? We need more support for the arts, not less -- particularly to make this rich world available to young people whose vision is choked by a stark reality.

Instead of rationally debating subjects like abortion or gay rights, they condemn as immoral those who favor choice and tolerance.
