That's what I said, too.
''If assholes were airplanes, this conference would be an airport.'' One way or another, it's all very anal in the Anglican church these days. The problem for Bishop Harris is that one day those flying assholes will take off and the airport will be empty.

Thanks, Pokey !!
Which is why gay marriage is already here in two Canadian provinces (Ontario and British Columbia), coming to Britain any day now, and likely to be ruled a fundamental human right by the Massachusetts Supreme Court later this summer. The transformation of a ''crime against nature'' into a co-equal civic identity within little more than the span of one human lifetime is one of the most remarkable victories ever achieved by any minority group. Some years ago, the (gay) columnist Andrew Sullivan said to me that he reckoned there was more male-on-male sex in the days before the invention of gayness as a round-the-clock identity. I don't doubt it. But that only makes the triumph of gay marriage even more impressive: In the Western world, a minority that didn't even exist in a formal sense a century ago has managed to overwhelm and overhaul a universal societal institution thousands of years old.

The article strikes me as libertarian rather than conservative. The quotation from another article is more of the same. Perhaps he thinks it is a matter of custom, preference, and privacy.
However, I think we are in the tail end of a losing war with the homosexual culture. Heterosexuals have lost the war because we gave up on the institution of marriage. With that burden out of the way, nothing could stop abortion on demand or any form of sexual license. As one wit said, "When God is removed from the equation, any orifice will do." Thus bestiality is now the cutting edge with Princeton ethicist Singer. Here is one link: Singer
