Correct David, Che is my Avatar on Pokerstars. However, I have yet to find a single other human being who agrees with everything I agree with. Even people I greatly admire (Che and Fidel among others) have beliefs that I completely disagree with. Homosexuality being the most prominent in this case.
If we only ever admired those people who believed exactly the same as us on every single subject, we'd end up thinking everyone else on the planet was nuts and we were the greatest.
Incidentally, another hero of mine is Bob Marely. Now whilst he is not on record saying anything about homosexuality, it is reasonable to assume that with his Christian beliefs and coming from jamaica, he would have been homophobic. Should this mean that I can't respect other stuff about him? Same goes for Fidel and Che. Unfortunatly, without actually talking to the person directly, you never know what one person thinks about another or why.
