"Conservatism and gay rights are actually natural allies. Conservatism rightly seeks to keep the government out of our private lives, and when you strip away the politics of pop culture, it's this assertion of privacy and freedom that the gay rights movement is essentially making."

If gay marriage ever obtains the official sanction and approval of the federal government, the private lives and personal beliefs of religious conservatives WILL be the central focus of some of the most aggressive and unrelenting governmental coercion ever carried out by the federal government against its own citizens.

Count on it.

More than "count on it"... PLAN FOR IT. Plan to survive in THAT exact culture. Because you will have to. Soon. Very very soon.

Absolutely correct. In fact, this is the greatest danger posed by the so-called "Gay rights" movement, which is a thinly-disguised agenda to overturn traditional (= "conservative") morality and hound into submission by coercive and repressive means if necessary all those who would dare to oppose them. These activists consider the Christian church to be their greatest opponent and enemy, and will not rest until ALL opposition is silenced, and churches, pastors - and yes, individual Christians - are forced to renounce what homosexual apologists consider "hurtful, harmful, and oppressive" teachings. (Full disclosure: I worked for many years in public policy in Washington DC and was deeply involved in pro-family issues)
