Because I seem to be misfiring today (see post below & comments), I’m glad I came upon this posting from last November 4. First, read the entire piece….. then let concede that the issue is more complex than perhaps I like to stress in my postings.
But also please understand that I believe the gay Republican/conservative voice is many times lost in the deafening cacophony (and you know I just wanted to use this word) of the gay liberal thought police’s talking points. So I hope that close readers of the blog know I realize I sometimes go out of my way to stress or exaggerate a point to highlight differences of opinion. It is just my style…
So with that all said, I completely agree with the closing part of Gryphmon’s post:
Anyway, the result of this has been that a true case for Gay Marriage was never made in a way that would resonate with the majority of Americans. It is for the most part a new idea. And the majority of Americans are still not even at the point where they consider us to be people, instead of just a behavior. And the Conservative echo chamber continues to reinforce this, while the Liberal echo chamber assumes that everyone is as open-minded as they supposedly are. Both sides are talking past each other.
There, now I’m done!
