Re-Education Camp (Mark's reply to his own editor)
National Review Online Corner ^ | December 22, 2013 | Mark Steyn

“We believe the next step is to use this as an opportunity for Phil to sit down with gay families in Louisiana and learn about their lives and the values they share,” the spokesman said.

Actually, “the next step” is for you thugs to push off and stop targeting, threatening and making demands of those who happen to disagree with you. Personally, I think this would be a wonderful opportunity for the GLAAD executive board to sit down with half-a-dozen firebreathing imams and learn about their values, but, unlike the Commissars of the Bureau of Conformity Enforcement, I accord even condescending little ticks like the one above the freedom to arrange his own social calendar. Unfortunately, GLAAD has had some success with this strategy, prevailing upon, for example, the Hollywood director Brett Ratner to submit to GLAAD re-education camp until he had eaten sufficient gay crow to be formally rehabilitated with a GLAAD “Ally” award.

There’s a reason, Mark, that Ann called them girly men.

Ow! Ow! A stinging rejoinder from the master himself.
Mark lays it on the line.
Steyn BUMP.

I find it interesting that GLAAD apparently thinks the gay families of LA have nothing to learn from Mr. Robertson’s values.

This is the giveaway that they are interested in re-education, not discussion. In fact, stifling discussion of any but the approved POV is the whole point of their offensive.

Dayum~! He has a way with words.

Reading (or listening to ) Steyn makes you smarter.

No, I believe it is time for the homosexuals to listen to, and obey, the Word of God and stop their sinful lifestyle. I will NOT accept the gay lifestyle. It is immoral and an abomination before God.

Second that!

By taking on Mark Steyn, the idealistic and breathtakingly naive Steorts must think he's walked into a propeller ... and Steyn pulls no punches in the verbal flurry he delivers.

“I am sorry my editor at NR does not grasp the stakes.”

National Review has become a sorry, pathetic magazine ever since the girly boys replaced the men who once wrote for it.

So thanks for the offer, but I don’t think you’d be much use, would you?

In choosing allies two things matter.
1.) Can they shoot?
2.) Will they aim at your enemy?

Everything else is details.

Sounds like Mark understands this.

I would honestly LOVE to see Phil's reaction when someone tells him that "his next step is to sit down with gay families to learn their lifestyle"

Please let there be a camera for that 'meeting' too...

We will have to monitor NRO and see if Steyn suddenly disappears from their pages. If he does, may they suffer the punishment of the market place as they lose readers.

Steyn is a MUCH bigger name and draw than the Derb. I think he’s pretty safe.

In any case, I can always read him at his own website.

William F. Buckley, Founder of National Review, and Gore Vidal his opposite on Crossfire, the old public TV program may have provided some insight into this kerfuffle decades ago. http://gawker.com/370733/gore-vidal-does-happy-little-jig-upon-william-f-buckleys-grave

I would do that by criticizing your manners, not by “indefinitely suspend[ing]” you, which would not be my decision anyway.

Meaning: I would fire you this minute if I had the power.

And Mr. Sheorts's reply is to content that it's just plain wrong to say anything that homosexuals don't want you to say.

Good gravy, where do these dinglebobs come from, anyway?

I love his way with words.

National Review is made up of squishy, soft men of late in the editorial realm. Well, the last time I noticed, but that was at least eight years ago.

There he goes again, stamping his foot while insisting plain-speaking just cannot be tolerated when it comes to the Pink Mafia, thereby missing Steyn’s entire point.

You don’t see many folks calling out their editors by name as puerile supporters, likely to melt away in the crunch, these days.

Steyn saw enough of the ham=handed tactics of the left in Canada when he was sued for ‘hate speech’ to last a lifetime.

I’d like Phil to sit down and share the Gospel with them. And if they reject the message, for Phil to fall on his knees and cry out to God them to be delivered, while wearing sackcloth and ashes. In fact, I would show up with him wearing sackcloth and ashes. And i would bring my guitar and sing praise song to the Lord in the background.

I didn’t read the comment, but I’m glad Steyn punched back twice as hard. Everybody hates that Steorts guy, I don’t know what he’s even doing at that publication. I haven’t read one thing by him that was even vaguely conservative.

People complain about Mike Potemra (I think I spelled that right, also the other guy’s name) but he’s much better. And he actually posts on the weekend, but not this weekend.

Steorts views on gay marriage:

“Against the traditionalist’s “comprehensive union,” the revisionist understands marriage as what I will call “maximal experiential union.” This is two persons’ sharing each other’s lives — conceived not as the facts about their bodies plus the facts about their minds, but rather as the facts about their experienced unity of the two — as comprehensively and deeply as possible. It satisfies in the strongest way the desire to escape the condition of facing life alone. It necessarily involves, and is consummated by, sexual intimacy...”

Nothing quite like having NRO promote “maximal experiential unions”!

I think Steorts believes some fudge-packing is needed for some to have a “maximal experiential union.” How someone like that gets hired as an editor for NRO, I don’t know. Maybe they could hire Bill Clinton as an editor...

The thing about heterosexuals who accept homosexual behavior as ok is that they have their own sins that require repentance. Just as Mr. Phil said. We are all sinners who need to turn away from our sin and to seek God.

Forget Cracker Barrel and Duck Dynasty. Thank God for Jesus and for Him showing us the Way and for dying for our sins! This brouhaha with Mr. Phil is a good thing. We must see it as such and see how this brings glory to God!

I never go there unless it’s to read a post by Steyn.

Why is Steorts a “Two-ist bigot?” What is so damn sacred about the number two? If a man and a woman can marry, and two men, and two women, why not two men and a woman? Or four men? What the heck is so vital about the #2?
