but once it's a fully fledged 24/7 identity, like being Hispanic or Inuit...
Steyn should be careful. You know what happened to Santorum when he tried to make comparisons.
Thanks for the ping to this wonderful article.

Those congregational attendance statistics tell their own story: Nobody needs a religion that licenses one's appetites.
In a sea of humor many islands of truth (apologizing for the lame metaphor)
Can anyone tell Steyn's position from this article? I think I interpret this article to say, "don't do it to me, but what they do is their business."
That's what the supreme court said.

Whether or not one approves of the sodomites, I can't help feeling a mite envious: How come guys this good never get the marketing account for my pet causes?
Satan has his own "pet causes"!

Alas, my own taste in gays is hopelessly old-fashioned.
So is mine. And so is that of at least some gays:
I have a gay friend who said he thought he was doing something incredibly racy and "fun" when he adopted his rather dramatic gay persona, and now that it had become politically correct, he didn't see any point in it!
He said that he didn't want to marry anybody of either sex, and that the politicization and "official status" of homosexuality had taken all the fun out of it. He could no longer sit in a bar pretending to be Bette Davis. Or even pretending to like Bette Davis movies...

The fastest-growing religion in North America and western Europe is the sternest: Islam.
And no one dares call Muslims bigots or intolerant.

David Frost likes to tell an anecdote from his mammoth post-Watergate Nixon interviews in the 70s. The former president was notoriously bad at small talk but, one Monday morning, decided to make an effort and, while the cameras were setting up, asked his interviewer, ''Did you do any fornicating this weekend?''
Sometimes I wonder if Nixon didn't have a mild case of Asperger's Syndrome.
gayness celebrated at the heart of society, and traditional Judeo-Christian morality relegated to the shadows, even though followers of the latter vastly outnumber those of the former.
Could be worse ... Christianity does much better when it's irremediably countercultural. Welcome to the remnant, folks!

Maybe I'll become Islamic... at least their religious leader aren't suppose to be porking the male parishioners, indeed it seems like a prerequisite in many of the branches of Christianity. I can just see the hiring of ministers today, Youre a great and inspirational religious leader, but Im afraid were looking for a gay minister- its all the fad!!.

If you think health care costs are high now, wait until all these same-sex deals get set up. The system is already ripe for fraud - what's to stop a bunch of straight roomates (maybe an entire frat house) to glom onto the benefits of one working man in the bunch?

Cole Porter!? "Makin' Whoopee!!??" "Begin the Beguine!!??" Say it ain't so!
"Nobody needs a religion that licenses one's appetites"
Steyn does it again. That is just one more of the most profound statements I have ever heard.
