This is a really good article. He is right. There is nothing to be gained from accepting the false premises of the left whether they be on social or fiscal matters. The same bad thinking that allows for bad government. It is a worldview detached from reality. I've never found a person who believed in same sex marriage or sexual liberalism who would not also justify the most horrid oppressions to support their views. It isn't enough to tolerate but instead you must celebrate and lift up what even basic instinct tells you is wrong/incorrect.

Liberals don’t believe anything is wrong. A society with that attitude will not survive.

If you believe the Bible is the word of God then you cannot be a gay rights supporter. The problem here is that many mainstream churche$$$$ not only condone same sex marriage but also allow their clergy to be gay.

This conservative is ‘picking his battles’ and sees far more destructive things going on at the hands of Obama and the Democrat majorities in the House and Senate.

Homosexuality is way down on the list of things I’m concerned about at this point. People are going to be attracted to whomever they’re attracted to. Not much you can do to stop that.

I believe that marriage is between a man and a woman, but I’m devoting most of my energy towards driving the leftists and radicals out of the government, repealing Obamacare, stopping Cap & Trade and preserving what’s left of the country I grew up in.

You can only fight so many things at any one time...

The question is how much the government should be used to enforce moral codes.

Way too many conservatives started excusing people who had sex outside of marriage, which is just as much a sin as homosexual sex. Once you start excusing any sin, all sin is not far behind.

But that’s because too many conservatives found divorce or sexual dalliances to be convenient or desirable, and didn’t want their own actions to be considered immoral.

Why not? The more attention you give them, the more they want.

". I've never found a person who believed in same sex marriage or sexual liberalism who would not also justify the most horrid oppressions to support their views."

Pleased to meet you, you just found one. I cannot imagine caring less who my neighbor sleeps with so long as he or she obeys the law. I don't have a position I care much about on the subject of gay marriage but feel that serial divorcers probably do as much damage to the institution of marriage as gay marriage would. I also would never condone any forcible acceptance of lifestyles beyond the obvious admonishment that only those without sin should be first in line at the stone pile.

Socialist are a far bigger threat to our way of life than are Log Cabin Republicans, IMHO.

“And the sexual genie, once restrained but now liberated, has penetrated virtually all areas of life and conjured up an ongoing societal transformation.”

Heh. “Penetrated.” Heh heh.

Okay, now that I've got that out of my system,
I found this to be somewhat convicting. I'd started drifting toward a libertarian view on this, thinking, “I can't force my religion on them, or they can force theirs on me.” And it does appear that that is exactly what they are trying to do; in actuality, they are trying to violate my right to disagree with them—the author makes a beautiful Orwellian metaphor, calling this “thoughtcrime.”

He's right. It's oil and water. The two freedoms (to same sex marriage or religion) are mutually exclusive. May God deliver us.

Remember: Politics-not science-decided that homosexuals are ‘normal’

“There are many other examples, even among top conservatives. It seems most, if not all, are falling away from this jugular issue for the same reason: They’re afraid”

Give me a break. This makes no sense at all. Ann Coulter is afraid of homosexuals? Why the heck is she voluntarily going to speak at their conference? No one would have persecuted her if she had been conveniently busy with something else that evening. Fear doesn’t guide Ann’s speaking or writing. No, this is something else, entirely.

Sounds like leftist speak to me... There are centuries of historical precedence regarding what works and what society values (laws) versus this novel homosexual experiment imposed by the elitists on the yellow brick road...

Go right ahead and celebrate society being forced to value and give privilege to two men exploring each others colons in a 'committed' & 'loving' relationship premised upon a sexual disorder.

I will continue with my "bad thinking" while you choose irrelevance --thank you very much

conservatives are NOT abandoning the issue.

it is Republicans with too many homosexual staffers controlling them. Congress critters are those with too many DC poofy staffers who direct the message.

It is like expecting shep smith to report a postive pro-marriage amendment story.

As for commentators, it is clear they are in NYC news areas where the behind the sceense types; studio employees, reporters etc. are just more of the same.
