Liberty and Virtue

A person who experiences same sex attraction and who endeavors to live chastely in accordance with his religious beliefs keeps an eye out for examples of gay activists' (1) showing intolerance and hatred of traditional religious and moral beliefs and believers, (2) attempting to deny freedom of speech, assembly and religion to others, and (3) trying to cause the government to impose liberal views on sexual morality on society. Other stuff of interest to blogger may also occasionally be posted.

Gay activists do not speak for all those who experience same sex attraction!

Not all those with SSA reject traditional sexual morality!

Not all those with SSA support promiscuity!

Not all those with SSA believe the gay activist ideology of “gay pride”!

Not all those with SSA believe in making their sex drive their primary public identity!

Not all those with SSA support public indecency in “gay pride” parades!

Not all those with SSA support government promotion of homosexual activity!

Not all those with SSA support same sex marriage!

Not all those with SSA support biased teaching in public schools on homosexual matters!

Not all those with SSA demonize traditional religious believers!

Not all those with SSA wish to deny basic freedoms of speech, religion and association to those who disagree with the gay activists’ ideology and agenda!

Christian charity for persons does not require affirmation of sinful or immoral activity!

"Gay Conservatoids"

Except for the use of the political term "gay", which I reject, an email of a correspondent of Jonah Goldberg's, posted on "The Corner," pretty much hits the nail on the head:

...Long story short, there are gay people who let their secual orientation define them, i.e. "I am gay therefore..." and finish it with: I have to vote Democrat, I have to watch crappy movies if they have a gay theme in them, I have to drive a Miata and have a rainbow sticker on the bumper... These guys will vote left because they're supposed to. They are lost.

There are others who see it as "I am..." a businessman, a Rangers fan, a Christian, a nice guy, a conservative ... and somewhere down the list, "I happen to be gay also." These guys will vote base on what they think will be best overall for the country and for them. The GOP will pick up some of these, and the sonks will pick up the rest.

It basically comes down to identity and priorities. I am probably more conservative than Bush in all the ways that count. I also think the specter of the "Christian Right" is more a left wing boogey-man used to keep the children in line than a political force, but that's another dissertation.
